So far, the Snack Food Reviews have focused on unusual flavors of typical American brands that are only found in China. But after the abomination that was Turkey Cheetos, The Bearded Giant felt like he needed to have some domestic Chinese snacks to cleanse his palate.
This will be a two-for-one post, as despite the dramatic difference in packaging, there isn’t much difference between the two.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if breakfast cereal hooked up with styrofoam and made a snack food baby?
The Bearded Giant is the only one?
Well, I for one am glad that Oishi was brave enough to find out. Because science… and uh…
Yeah. I am not so sure I can sell these as being interesting at all.
Take the least exciting aspects of breakfast cereal. Then remove the nutrition. Then some of the texture. Now spread the tiniest layer of icing on each piece.
They’re definitely more nutritious than styrofoam. So there’s that. And hey! Zero grams of trans fat! That’s awesome right?
Except maybe with that font choice, they might mean these are O.G. Trans Fat. Like Original Gangster Trans Fat. What could be more hardcore than that? I mean wasn’t that a character Joe Pesci played in that one movie? And he busted that one dude’s head open for disrepecting him? Went all “O.G. Trans Fat” style on that dude?
Sigh… Okay… I’m out of ideas here.
The Bearded Giant gives these a rating of 40grams of something other than trans fat, and just a hint of icing.
(But at least they didn’t smell like Fake Grape)
