I have some other things to write about, but I do try to keep up to date on snack reviews.

Salted Fudge & Peanut Cookie: This has baked salted peanuts, redskin peanuts, mini cocoa cookies, and vanilla fudge. It has 230 calories. It is best to eat all of the components together. I like the mix of sweet and salty, but the fudge doesn’t really add much in my opinion.

Pizza Margherita: This is a mix of cheese-flavored cashews, basil crunchini, and mini tomato breadsticks. It has 120 calories. It has nice crunch, but doesn’t taste very pizza-like to me. In particular, the tomato flavor is very mild. This isn’t bad, but there are other savory snacks I prefer.

Lightly Salted Popping Corn: This is 130 calories worth of microwave popcorn. There’s not really much more than that to say about it. It pops up well and tastes good. But it isn’t substantially different than the better brands of popcorn you can get in the supermarket.

Caramel Apple: This consists of dried apple slices with a caramel sauce. It has 80 calories. Whether or not people like this tends to depend on how they feel about soft, chewy dried apples. They make sense to me for something like this where the point is the caramel dip, which is amazingly delicious. It’s a good thing there is built in portion control, because I could go through gallons of this caramel sauce otherwise. Yum.

Sweet Rhubarb Jam: This is a mix of dried cranberries, dried apple pieces, and rhubarb slices. It has 100 calories. I really like the mix of sweet and tangy in this snack. It works best if you eat all of the components together. As far as I am concerned, this is right on the mark.

Soy Roasted Seeds: This is a mixture of roasted sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds with soy sauce. It has 200 calories and 7 grams of protein. It’s tasty and a good enough snack. But it is also pretty boring.

Vitamin C Crush: This consists of dried mango, dried pineapple, and coconut flakes. It has 100 calories. The ingredients are all things I like, but the pieces of mango and of pineapple are large and too chewy. The flavor is good, but the texture just doesn’t work for me. I decided to trash this, as a result.

Pumpkin Spice Flapjack: This is a rolled oat flapjack (i.e. soft granola bar) with dates and pumpkin spice mix. It has 230 calories. I like all of the graze flapjacks I’ve had. This is heavy on the spice – which is good as far as I’m concerned. Flavorful and filling. I do wish they were lower in sugar, however.
