When I go shopping, I am easily distracted when I walk down the aisle and catch sight of interesting or weird snacks. And I often want to blog about them, but then, well, I devour the whole package and forget to photograph them! (Oops!)
For instance, just last week, when I was browsing a European supermarket, I found Snapea Crisps Harvest Snaps, which are baked wasabi-ranch-flavoured green-pea snacks that have the entire peapod intact. (The brand that makes them is called Calbee, which I’ve never seen before.)
Yeah, they might sound gross, but sometimes those kind of snacks intrigue me, and I just have to try them. (Plus on the package, it said that compared to regular potato chips, these have 50% less fat, are a good source of fibre, and are low-sodium. Also, 70% is made from whole peas.) That being said, I wasn’t eating these to be healthy! Haha, that’s like saying you eat potato chips to get your daily intake of vegetables – that’s stretching it like Gumby! (I ate them because the little kid in me was jumping up and down out of curiosity.)
If I ever see them again, I’ll blog about them, to the disgust of some, I’m sure. 😉
But for today’s Smorgasbord Sundays post, I have something much tamer, but still verrrrry yummy!
I was at Loblaws, and I walked by the cracker and cookie aisle. I literally stopped dead in my tracks when I saw the Goldfish Grahams in a new Vanilla Cupcake flavour!
Cupcake? Count me in! (Yup, in addition to enjoying fragrances that make me smell like vanilla cupcakes, I also like eating things that taste like vanilla cupcakes.)
In this post, I’ll show you a few photos of this new product!
Look – even the bag is super cute, isn’t it? 😉
I like how they provide a resealable ‘sticker’, so you can keep the remaining Goldfish fresh. (Of course, it may be too tempting to finish the entire bag. *Hums* Maybe I ate it all in a single sitting. Maybe I didn’t!) 😉
Like all of the Goldfish, they are bite-sized with little eyes and adorable smiles. (You almost feel guilty for eating something so cute. But then they’re so darn yummy, you get over it pretty quickly!) 😉
The Goldfish are made with actual vanilla extract, and yes, my taste buds approve of these delicious snacks!
Some tried to swim away.
But I ended up polishing off the entire school of fish! 😉
In case you’re curious about the nutritional information on these cookies, I took a photo.
The suggested serving is 23 pieces, but I didn’t count. I just ate. *Oink Oink*
