STARBURST – SWEET HEAT

12 Oct

UntitledUhhhh…. I wasn’t excited to try these.  With flavors like:

Fiery Watermelon, Strawberry Mango, Flamin’ Orange, and Pipin’ Pineapple.   All of which have a bit of a kick…but I didn’t detect so much actual “heat”.   If anything it had just some basic quirky peppery feeling.

Nothing I couldn’t live without.   Can’t see myself buying these again when the Original and Tropical flavors are all so much better.  BUT…they got me to buy it..and talk about their brand..so mission accomplished.

NOW AND LATER – SHELL SHOCKED

10 Oct

UntitledWelcome back to the Candy Counter!!  Today we are looking at SHELL SHOCKED…by Now and Later.

Truth be told, I haven’t had a “Now and Later” in years. I don’t ever see them at local stores….not that I can remember anyway.

So when I saw these, it was a name I was familiar with..and I figured it was a new take on an old favorite.   Which it is…it’s the same chews you remember with a candy coating…so there was that weird moment of …oh cool…candy coating…lemme crunch through this…and…….these taste just like the same Now and Laters I remember.    Kinda bland to me and the fun of the candy is lost once that shell cracks.

You ever had these?  Tell me about it in the comments below!

PRINGLES – TANGY BUFFALO

9 Oct

Untitledhmmm..Pringles.   How you tempt me with your light and crispy ways.

Now you had to go and make “Tangy Buffalo Wing” and I am hooked.   They have that simple cayenne pepper flavoring that makes wings soooo addictive…..as are these snack crisps.   I found them at Target and might just be my new favorite Pringle.

Which is your favorite Pringle flavor??

BUC-EE’S – HOMEMADE POTATO CHIPS

6 Oct

UntitledSuper crunchy.  That is what you think when you see these freshly made chips.  Even before you reach for them, you know they gonna be all CRUNCHY!

I could spend a week inside Buc-ee’s and never eat the same thing twice.  The place is that large in size and selection —

*oh..if you don’t know, Buc-ee’s is a like Walmart and a truck stop mixed together*

Grabbing a sack of these fresh made chips I knew I was in for some crunchy crunch crunch.  I got it..and a slightly saltiness but that was it.    I am sort of spoiled now I guess…..don’t get me wrong these are great (but plain) chips….maybe if they made some that had some seasoning to them?  That would be a nice addition to the snack-team!

MAZZIO’S – TOASTED RAVIOLI

5 Oct

Untitled…ahhhhh once again we catch up with my all-time favorite pizza parlor….Mazzio’s.

Unfortunately there isn’t a Mazzio’s close to me.   Sad emoji.

So whenever I am in a town that has a Mazzio’s, I am always instantly craving pizza….and sometimes I forget that they make other things that are just as awesome – like this “Toasted Ravioli”.  It’s sausage and cheese blended and breaded raviolis then dusted with cheese and served up with some marinara sauce.  It’s a fantastic appetizer, snack, or meal by itself!   Love, Love, LOVE these!!!!!  woo!

HERR’S – DEEP DISH PIZZA – CHEESE CURLS

4 Oct

UntitledOHHHH wow.  These are some tempting snacks.  I mean look at that bag, baby.   Deep Dish Pizza?  Bring it on!

Herr’s is a relative new kid on the block, as I only remember seeing them in the last year or so.  Maybe they have been around forever.  What I do know is they step their game up with ideas like this.

They taste like you might expect – cheese, a slight tomato, and some Italian herb…..highly snackable!

UntitledLOOK at those babies!   They almost GLOW in the dark!

I found them at Dollar General, but I am also seeing them pop up in other places so give them a try and comment below how you like them!

FUNYUNS – STEAKHOUSE ONION

11 Aug

UntitledOkay….wow….I didn’t think it would happen.   I didn’t think that it was possible to make Funyuns any more awesomeR.  But they did.

They wents and didds it, yo!

These “Steakhouse Onion” are supposed to have a “Bloomin’ Onion” sorta taste to them I guess??  I don’t know – I don’t eats bloomin’ onions enough to know.

All I know is these things are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s a fuller-body flavor all over those crunchy rings.   I am afraid to type this because it’s prolly a limited time thing…which means I will love them…and they will leave me…..just like prom night.

Go check them out and report back!
