New snack foods

18 posts in this topic

So I tried three new chocolately snacks today...

1) Oreo fudge cremes. Its a half an oreo with the creme side, and then dipped in chocolate. The end result is that it tastes a little pepperminty and its like oreo is ripping off girl scout thin mint cookies. I didn't care for these, and thin mint cookies are superior.

2) Pretzel M&Ms. No nut in the middle, instead is a small pretzel ball. The salt and chocolate really go well together and the pretzel in the middle isn't too hard or too soft. The candy shell seems a little out of place but overall the salt/sweet combo is good.

3) Snickers with fudge. They took out the caramel that makes a snickers so good and replaced it with a subpar fudge. It tastes like someone put some fudge in a snickers all right, and not the good kind of fudge. :blech:

Has anyone else tried some new candies or snacks lately?

Actually I haven't seen any of those pop up over here yet o.0;

Think the last "new" candy i tried was roughly 5 years ago when Take 5's first came out.

I tried the sour jolly ranchers and the fizzy popping skittles. The JRs made my tongue raw and the skittles are not worth trying more than once. Winds up being just fizzy foam that doesn't even taste good afterwords. lol

I personally like the new skittles. Its kinda like pop rocks coated wild berry skittles. X'D

Coconut M&Ms are pretty good too, but hard to find around here.

Monster Slim Jims are a must however!

I don't usually eat candy but the last new candy I had that I liked were the Almond Joy Pieces. the other new Pieces were okay, but reminded me too much of M&Ms.

Pepper Jack Cheese & Jalapeno Jack Cheese are a must for me though. Just prefer spicey snacks over sweet snacks.

i absolutely ADORE the coconut M&Ms :) the pretzel ones are good too. i also like the dark chocolate kit kats we got in recently too. they actually go really well with my coffee in the morning if im craving a little sugar :3

the fizzing skittles... not impressed. they taste like garbage after the fizzy stuff wears off and the aftertaste isnt too nice either.

I've seen the dark chocolate kit kats, next time I get a chance to buy some I'll try it with my coffee! ^_^

I've never even heard of coconut m&ms... O_O interesting.

I saw those skittles at the gas station but I passed on them because they didn't sound good. I'm glad I didn't pick them up. X'D

The coconut M&M's are freaking awesome, rather tasty.

The new skittles aren't bad every once in awhile (get old fast though). Mostly just a gimmick to get kids more interested.

More snack foods!

I tried

1) Butterfinger Snackerz. Its was like a cookie with a butterfinger cream center, encased in chocolate... in bite size pieces. It was ok, but regular butter fingers are still better.

2) Wildly Cherry M&Ms. Its regular m&ms with chocolate in the center, but the candy shell is flavored like cordial cherries. Quite tasty, but Hershey's Cherry Cordial Kisses are still superior.

3) Milky Way Simply Caramel. Its a milky way bar that is just caramel inside. Its like a bar version of the cadbury egg. Its pretty much unchewable because its so much caramel so expect caramel gooyness.

      I tried Lay's Stax for the first time this week and got two different flavors. Original and Buffalo Wings With Ranch. The originals are nothing special. I used those as a base to evaluate the new flavor I was interested in. Original Lay's Stax taste just like Pringles Original except the chips are about 1 1/2 times thicker.

      Buffalo Wings With Ranch look exactly like they do on the packaging. One side plain with the other side flavored. The chips were very consistent with no one chip massively over seasoned and because of the packaging, not a single busted chip.

      The chips have a noticeable vinegar smell and taste with a very mild taste of buffalo along with an almost non-existent hint of ranch. Overall I was not impressed with these chips.
      Should you eat them?
      If you like vinegar with buffalo, try them out. If not, then pass on them. Just don't eat these with a group of people around or in the office because you might get complaints because the smell of vinegar is very powerful.

      Doritos Jacked chips are thick, large, bolder tasting versions of their regular Doritos lineup. So when I saw the Doritos Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings flavor I had to try them. The packaging details really jumped out at me and being a fan of the Ranch flavored doritos the blue color really grabbed my attention.

      The chips are huge like all the other Doritos Jacked chips and the flavor is almost spot on for what it claims to be. The Hot Wings flavor is a spicy buffalo flavor with a hint of vinegar that gives it a nice bite to the heat. Along with a nice hint of ranch these chips taste good. All the chips are noticeably coated with flavoring and smell great.

      Should you eat these?
      Yes. If this flavor sounds appealing to you, get a bag and enjoy the bold taste.
      (Update!) After eating these at work today the vinegar smell and taste of the chips was much more noticeable. A small change of environment and I realized I must have been getting used to the smell and taste at home. Turns out these are a bit stronger with vinegar than I thought they were and a couple coworkers seemed to notice.

      Lay's Sriracha is one of the three new Lay's potato chip flavors available as part of the "Lay's Do Us A Flavor" contest. I haven't had the chance to try the other two flavors, but I did get my hands on a bag of these.
      I have to admit.. I have never tried Sriracha sauce before so I have no idea just how spicy the sauce is by itself. I've heard that it is intensely hot and based on the picture on this bag I can only assume its going to be extra spicy.

      The chips themselves are a bit reddish in color compared to regular Lay's. They smell very mild and not powerful enough to indicate any real heat. The flavor is the regular salty lays taste with a nice heat that hits lightly and then burns the tongue a bit. After about 5 chips or so the burn is a bit more noticeable and at its maximum heat. I didn't notice any back of the throat burn or "creeping up on you burn" like you would normally get with cayenne pepper so i can only assume these chips are more mild in heat intensity compared to actually dripping Sriracha sauce directly onto regular lays chips.

      Should you eat these?
      Yes. If you want to try a new kind of spicy potato chip, give these a try. But don't expect them to be the hottest chips out there.
