Combos Buffalo Blue Cheese Pretzel

Combos were a favorite snack of mine as a child. I loved the pizza flavored ones with a passion. So when I saw Combos Buffalo Blue Cheese Pretzels on the shelf I thought I'd get to relive the pleasant snacking experience of my past with a great new flavor. I was wrong. I love buffalo chicken wings dipped in blue cheese and the art on this bag is misleading. Of course its a pretzel snack and I wasn't expecting it to taste like the image on the bag, so I assumed the filling inside would be a nice buffalo taste with a hint of blue cheese in it. But that wasn't the case at all. I opened the bag and the smell was horrible. It smelled like raw blue cheese and not the creamy kind like on the bag. While thats not so bad, it did not smell right at all coming out of a room temperature bag.

The inner filling is buffalo flavored and the blue cheese that was so poignant was actually a coating on the outside of the pretzel. When eating one of these the blue cheese flavor is the first taste that makes contact with your tongue. The first couple pretzels tasted fine, but as I continued eating them I realized the blue cheese flavor kept tasting worse and worse to me. As the inside of my mouth started to get coated with the aftertaste, I realized how disgusted I was getting and I had to stop. The blue cheese flavor coating is horrible. After a while it started reminding me of rotten cheese and the smell started disgusting me. The odor is so bad that people around me eventually commented about how horrible it smelled. I gave this snack a second try a couple days later. I opened the bag, caught the scent and basically I got revolted before I even put one in my mouth. After eating another 7 I realized I should have bought a small trial size bag instead. I had to give these away.

Should you eat these?

No! I'm a big fan of blue cheese and this flavor is disgusting. In fact, I don't think any snack maker has ever made a blue cheese flavor that tastes good to me. If you see these on the shelf, pass on them and pick up some of their pizza flavored pretzels instead.

LMAO!! It must have taken a while to get up there if you've just tried these. They've been around since 2008-09 here. They're ok... but I prefer the cracker and cheese versions over the pretzel ones... the Salsa flavor is amazing if they still make it

Its not on their website anymore though, they now have a 7 layer bean dip flavor I've never seen..... but there is no way you can pack that much flavor into combos much like the buffalo blue cheese, it probably falls short.

The stores around here have probably had these combos for years but I would only eat the pizza ones. :P Since I started doing snack reviews I've tried flavors I never would have before. ^_^

 

Zesty Salsa.. Those I have not seen before. I'll try to find them. ^__^

      Well my dryer broke after about 15 years and multiple repairs I've done over those years. I had to buy a new dryer. So far so good. I was finally able to get my laundry done again and my bathroom no longer smells like dirty socks and febreeze.

      FML my pressure tank is failing for my well. Its getting replaced next week. Getting a new whole house water filter installed too along with some new valves and safety upgrades. Props to the well company employee for giving me the tip of hooking up an air compressor to the pressure tank to put some air in the bladder to get the system gimping along until the repair work is done. I miss public water. lol.

      This has been a busy summer. I'm almost looking forward to winter so I can get a break from all the lawn mowing and outside projects. Hopefully the snow blower I bought this year works good so I'll have alot of free time this winter to get caught up on things. When I've had free time I've been playing Final Fantasy X over the last 5 months and I've somehow finally hit 100 hours on it. Lol. Only took me about half a year.  I still didn't beat it yet but I'm at the end game stuff now with the monster arena and omega ruins.

      I got back from Ohio last night. My mom had a Remembrance Party in honor of my dad this last weekend. It was a really nice time. I'm glad I got to see so many people that knew my dad and talk to them about how he was a positive and/or great influence in their lives. The party was a bbq party too. My younger brother smoked 30 pounds of pulled pork and 20 pounds of bbq beef. I helped with the process. It was a great time.
