Snack Time #43 – Triscuit Nutmeg & Cinnamon Crackers

Mrs. Sip, one of the biggest cheese and crackers fans I’ve ever come across, recently picked up a box of this Triscuit Crackers product. Although initially hesitant, the Sip Alliance all enjoyed the snack after giving it a chance.

The Nutmeg & Cinnamon Crackers are good, with a nice mix of sweet and spice. Given their dessert nature, though, finding toppings for the cracker is a bit of a task. The box shows a cracker topped with sweet potato, apple and walnut, which is intriguing.

Mrs. Sip and Cousin Sip went with a pomegranate-habanero jelly and aged white cheddar combo, which they devoured in short order. The limited edition release hit store shelves last month and should remain available through the holiday season.

Triscuit has put out a number of flavour variants in recent times, including Dill Sea Salt, Smoked Gouda and Roasted Garlic. I just don’t get as excited for crackers, as I do potato chips, but I do like Triscuits in general.

Snack Time #41 – Lays BLT Potato Chips

The day has finally arrived when a BLT flavoured potato chip has been created, thanks to the fine folks at Lays Potato Chips. Why it took so long to dream up such an internationally recognized and beloved flavour, I don’t know.

These chips are fantastic. The bacon, tomato and light lettuce tastes are there, but I think what I love best about them is they managed to include the mayo finish you typically get when consuming a BLT. This really puts them over the edge in the delicious category.

The BLT has always been one of my favourite sandwiches and my adoration of potato chips is well documented. Combining the two is like a dream come true. I only hope these aren’t just a limited edition flavour; however, sales may decide that.

To this day, I still weep that my suggested PB&J potato chip flavour was rejected by Lays because of nut allergy concerns. I believe they should make the product and those who have the allergy can choose to stay clear.

Snack Time #16 – M&M’s Strawberry Nut

M&Ms are very good at routinely releasing different limited edition flavours and for the most part they pass the taste test. Mrs. Sip spotted this variation while we were recently in Las Vegas and I’m so glad she did.

The Strawberry Nut variety is delicious. The key is that the strawberry flavour is kept light and then you have the usual peanut and chocolate enjoyment that is typical from M&M’s Peanut products. The strawberry adds a touch of decadence.

Coming in red, pink and green candy-coated shells, it’s taken great willpower for me to ration the little treats. I don’t know whether they’re available outside the US and how long they will remain on store shelves before disappearing.

This isn’t M&M’s first foray into strawberry fields (forever), as the company has also released Strawberry Shortcake, Strawberried Peanut Butter and plain ol’ Strawberry recipes. Keep em’ coming, guys!
