Review: New Banana Drizzled w/ Dark Fudge Newtons Fruit Thins & Episode 5 of THE NOSH SHOW!
Junk Food Nation, it’s Monday, which means two things: (1) GAME 7 of the Miami Heat versus the Indiana Pacers, at home in Miami! If this isn’t must see TV for any die hard sports fan, I don’t know what is. And (2) Monday means THE NOSH SHOW EPISODE 5 IS OUT:
This week, Marvo from The Impulsive Buy, Ryan from Grub Grade, Dubba from On Second Scoop, and me, your friendly neighborhood Junk Food Guy, discuss the new Kobe Beef jerky, fast food secret menus, and more!
Today’s junk food: New Banana Drizzled w/ Dark Fudge Newtons Fruit Thins
New Banana Drizzled w/ Dark Fudge Newtons Fruit Thins were first seen over on The Impulsive Buy’s site, and then I found them myself at my local grocery. I’ve reviewed Newtons Fruit Thins before, having tried and reviewed their Chocolate Raspberry and Lemon Crisp varieties before. Generally, I really enjoy these Fruit Thins – they sort of taste like Belvita crackers.
New Banana Drizzled w/ Dark Fudge Newtons Fruit Thins is “one unique cookie.” Well, I’m sure it is, since this marks the first Fruit Thin that has been drizzled with chocolate. And all I can say is ABOUT TIME. Seriously, it only makes sense to add stuff to the OUTSIDE of these Fruit Thins! I want to see Oreo-style Fruit Thin Creme Sandwiches next! #Genius
Don’t wanna know what Banana Times are…
Sidenote: Does anyone else call bananas “Nanners?” Or is that just me? Seriously, that’s just *me*??? I cannot be the ONLY one. Tell me in the comments below.
New Banana Drizzled w/ Dark Fudge Newtons Fruit Thins SMELLED like banana and chocolate as soon as I opened the container. Personally, I LOVE banana plus chocolate, so I couldn’t WAIT to eat these. I mean, when I reviewed the Talenti Banana Chocolate Swirl Gelato, I almost wet myself. These cookies? If they are as good as they smell, FORGET IT NOM NOM NOM.
These New Banana Drizzled w/ Dark Fudge Newtons Fruit Thins were, in a word, AWESOME. The cookie was light and crunchy and gave off an IMMEDIATE banana flavor, aided by the dried hard pieces of banana within the cookie itself. It tasted like the banana bread I’ve eaten at bakeries or that people made for me. Naturally sweet.
Add to that the great (albeit, processed) fudge ribbon on top, which was deep in chocolate taste and not TOO sweet. The sweetness of the banana cookie enhanced the flavor of the chocolate. Together, the flavors worked in harmony – the banana taste starting the overall flavor strong, and then the chocolate emerging to complement it and give a satisfying aftertaste. The chocolate fudge ribbon was a LITTLE messy, as the oils used meant that the fudge got all over my fingers…but I can look past that, given the taste.
REALLY good job here by Nabisco. Do they make Banana Newtons dipped in Fudge? They should, because I’d buy them. For now, I’ll just devour these.
