Review: Utz Butterfinger Mini Pretzels & Awkward Mondays: There’s a Bathroom Attendant HERE!?
Junk Food Nation, I was at a random restaurant recently, a typical family establishment, nothing expensive AT ALL…went to the bathroom, did my business, went to the sink…and there was a bathroom attendant with soap and an already ripped paper towel. Now, I don’t know about you, but I typically find bathroom attendants in either (1) awful nightclubs, where the bathroom attendants have a whole cavalcade of mints, cologne, gum, razors, condoms, cigarettes, etc. like its effing Walmart, or (2) really REALLY expensive restaurants where they aren’t holding paper towels but actual warm cloth towels for you to dry your hands and they offer to shine your shoes.
This restaurant did NOT fit into either category, so I was VERY surprised to see a bathroom attendant. Plus, it wasn’t the sort of place where if you didn’t tip the bathroom attendant, you’d be seen as “that jerk upper cruster who can’t afford a dollar or two for the guy helping you wash your hands.” This was literally just a family joint, and this guy had a bottle of soap and a paper towel. He had a look of desperation about him. Just a big ass dude in a tight black T-shirt with gigantic pecs holding a bottle of soap. It was so awkward.
I went to avoid eye contact and washed my hands in the farthest sink possible but he rushed up and squirted soap all over my hands anyways. ”Thanks man,” I squeaked weakly. And I tipped him a dollar and got the hell out of there.
Imagine if you went to Outback, and in the bathroom there was a bathroom attendant. It was so random. There wasn’t a menu item that cost more than $15…and they’ve got a bathroom attendant?? Makes me wonder if he was just some rando that was hiding in there. CREEPY.
Today’s junk food: Utz Butterfinger Mini Pretzels!
Ok, I’ll be honest. All I could think of when I saw these Utz Butterfinger Mini Pretzels was “HOLY HELL WHERE DID THESE COME FROM!?” This was one of those snacks that made my eyes widen and I grabbed for it like it was forbidden fruit. Pretzels. Covered in Butterfinger??????? WHAT!?
Utz Butterfinger Mini Pretzels are covered in a dusting of crushed up Butterfinger candy pieces. That means bits of peanut butter crunch. Bits of chocolate. All on a salty pretzel. I’m drooling.
The real question is, how have I not seen these Utz Butterfinger Mini Pretzels before? And these were stuck on the top shelf in some display at the end of a food aisle in my local grocery store. What the heck!?
Utz Butterfinger Mini Pretzels have so many ingredients, that Utz actually had to break it down into three separate listings. Don’t like that I see partially hydrogenated oil…but honestly, I’m not that swayed by it.
Utz Butterfinger Mini Pretzels look exactly as advertised. I opened the bag and chocolatey peanut buttery smell poured out. Each pretzel was chocolate covered with a that light peanut butter sprinkle covering every inch of pretzel. These looked great. Let’s chomp them.
Overall, I was REALLY PLEASED with these Utz Butterfinger Mini Pretzels. The coating was sweet and indeed had great peanut buttery and chocolatey flavor. It was very reminiscent of a Butterfinger, although I didn’t get as much candy crunch as I did peanut butter flavor. The crunch definitely came from the pretzel, which was light and crispy, and provided a nice crunchy chew. The salt from the pretzel REALLY highlighted the choclate peanut butter coating, and created a slightly savory sweet taste.
Overall, I thought the snack was VERY successful, and had to stop myself from eating these. Chocolate peanut butter pretzels are a big win in my book, as you guys all know from my review of the Snack Factory Peanut Butter Crunch Pretzel Crisps.
Good work, Utz!
