Rating: ©©©©-1/4 chips (lip-smacking)
Okay, we really didn’t mean to judge a book by its cover, or in this case a snack mix by its flavor, but we’ll admit it, our initial thoughts regarding this stuff had bad idea written all over it! No seriously, small letters, right there in the bottom left hand corner of the bag. Oh, you’re actually looking for it? What’s that, you still can’t find it?? Well, you just keep looking, and we’ll just continue on.
Buck Wild’s Chocolate Banana Mix includes: Banana Chips, Chocolate Granola, Pretzel Sticks, and Little Chocolate (what they are calling) Cookies.
Are you thinking that this is an odd mix combination? Well, we are way ahead of you! But, we’re happy to tell you that the combination of textures and flavors actually works really well!
Right away our mouths recognized the classic sweet and salty juxtaposition. Certainly more sweet than salt, but the deeper we dug into the bag, the more salty the combo became.
None of the four ingredients were really anything special on their own, but to be completely honest, each time we crunched on a handful of the pieces our mouths were deliciously intrigued.
So, we are here to tell you, don’t judge a mix by its flavor!
P.S., we just noticed the other day that you can actually pick up a bag of this mix at Starbucks locations now. We’re thinking coffee may go very well with this odd sweet and salty combination.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
