Warning. Do not look at these on a full stomach. Lol, nah, not that barfy, but some are …
Mostly horrifying, though I personally was excited about the Red Hot Goldfish crackers and did eat a bag. They were quite hot, pretty intense to eat on their own but would be good in a mix. I would also try the wasabi Doritos and extra toasty Cheez-its. I’m sure I’ve seen the latter at Grocery Outlet, could take one for the team if they’re still there
I can’t believe they are hating on Extra Toasty Cheez-It Crackers.
Pickled onion flavour are a classic & I even enjoy the roast beef flavour, but this…
Pickled onion is one of my favourites. But this vanilla? Abomination.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
Although like others, I am pro wasabi-flavoured savoury snacks and extra-toasty cheese-its, because those are natural progressions of the snacks in question.
They were awful. I used to work for a food logistics company and a rep bought some samples in. I had to try, just to see. We used to get reps coming in with all sorts. Working there was one of the reasons I stopped eating lamb shanks at pubs o, unless I knew the place well but that’s a different story.
Wasabi peas have long been a favorite here, as has truffle-flavored potato chip dip.
The Salted Caramel thing has jumped the shark. Oreos, Bailey’s.
I tried Tzatziki Triscuits and Nanaimo Bar Aero (chocolate bar) this year. Both awful.
A lot of people dip their french fries in milkshakes - so it’s not that unusual
That’s different-- that’s the contrast in temperature, texture, and flavour. Merging it all in a crisp? shudder
Yes, wasabi peas are available here. So too are wasabi crisps. (Also wasabi ice cream at Lidl from time to time. Have not tried that though.)
Chocolate dipped or drizzled crisps were a thing a while back.
Ruffles squares, which are rice krispies squares made with rippled chips/crisps, butter and marshmallow ,are sold by some bakeries. Crispy, chewy, buttery, sweet.Same basic flavour profile as the vanilla ice cream Walkers.
I dislike vanilla ice cream so I wouldn’t choose anything flavoured like it, but I can see some people would like it.
I don’t consider myself a particularly discriminating wine drinker, but I do know that I don’t want my cabernet to taste like Oreos.
I can almost understand the mustard wine, since wine is a key ingredient in a good Dijon mustard, but I don’t think I’d want to drink it.
Yep I’m properly HORRIFIED! I could see the sense of spicy Cheez-its & the Goldfish but the rest?
I should just make a new thread for stupid news things and wastes of time. Headline read How to Get Your Money’s Worth out of a 79.99 pp Vegas Buffet. Their one and only worthwhile tip - come hungry.
Head directly to the Crab Legs and Prime Rib, and skip the potato salad at a $79.99 buffet .
I still haven’t been to Vegas, but I’ve done buffets at Reno and Tahoe.
As I noted above, there are combinations of sweet and salty/savoury that are lovely, particularly as flavour is also accompanied by texture and temperature. But a chemical vanilla flavour doused over monster munch seems to be a mess all over. A flattening of every other effect and questionable flavour.
I haven’t tried it.
I will say white chocolate-coated Golden Grahams cereal is addictive (called Clodhoppers, White Trash or Puppy Chow in North America), and I think these vanilla ice cream flavoured Monster Munch chips could or would be similar.
