Review: Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays & What I Kind Of Wanted For My Birthday…WEARABLE SPIDERMAN SLEEPING BAG

Junk Food Nation, it’s my birthday on Saturday, and I am extremely blessed. Wonderful family, the Junk Food Gal, and all the snacks I can eat.  Plus, a fantasy football team that is FINALLY starting to turn it around NO THANKS TO YOU VINCENT JACKSON.  CATCH A TOUCHDOWN ONCE IN A WHILE, YOU HACK.

Anyways, I’m really bad at asking for things for my birthday – I am, after all, an adult male with a job and the means to buy myself  whatever I want whenever I want – but I saw something the other day that I NERDED OUT OVER: WEARABLE. SUPERHERO. SLEEPING BAGS.

WHAAAAA

WHAAAAA

 

I KNOW, RIGHT???? I love it too.  Basically, it’s a sleeping bag onesie, that comes with coverings for your hands, feet, and a hood for your domepiece.  AND IT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A SUPERHERO.  Not only Spiderman, but also Captain America, the Hulk, and Iron Man! Say WHAAAAAA.

I showed the Junk Food Gal excitedly, and she immediately responded: “How is this not just a one piece snow suit?” To which I roared WHY MUST YOU QUESTION ME, WOMAN? Well, that’s what I WANTED to say. Instead I whimpered, “But…but…Spiderman…..” Heh heh.

Anyways, probably no one will buy me this amazing wearable sleeping bag, but still, I felt like it deserved a starw poll to the Junk Food Nation. In the comment below, tell me: is this product AMAZING or STUPID?

Today’s junk food: Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays!

Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays: The Dual Money Shot

Finally got my hands on one of these bags of Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays! As I mentioned a few days ago, this blog previously featured a review of the Milk Chocolate version of these chips.  Well, now the Milk Chocolate version is back, with new packaging, and it has a dark chocolate sibling!!  WOOT.

Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays: The Money Shot

I really liked the Milk chocolate ones, so I have high hopes for these Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays. I mean, potato chips dipped in chocolate? Welcome to Gluttonsville, population YES.

Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays: SALT!

Plus, the biggest difference with these Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays – the appearance of large coarse salt crystals on the surface.  OOO LA LA.

Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays: Salty and sweet magic indeed

Each bag contains about 15 chips for a whopping 800 CALORIES A BAG.  Damn. PS: This is a 5 oz bag.

Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays: Ingredient 1 = CHOCOLATE

Please note: the first ingredient of these Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays is CHOCOLATE, not chips.  I prefer that ratio – I want as much chocolate as possible with only the crunch of a potato chip.

Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays: Partial coverae

I opened this bag of Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays up and immediately smelled dark chocolate – a distinct smell over milk chocolate.  The aroma was deep and cocoa-y.  They. Smelled. Awesome.

Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays: One side fully covered

Most of these Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays chips were fully covered on one side…

Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays: Thick coating

…with some chip exposed on the other side.  The partial coating, I thought, was a good thing – despite my happiness that there was more chocolate than potato in this combo, I still WANTED to taste the chip. If I had just wanted a crunchy chocolate bar, I’d eat several other chocolate bars. I wanted something different with these.

Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays: YUM YUM

Needless to say, these Limited Edition Dark Chocolate Covered Wavy Lays were friggin’ good. The Dark Chocolate coating the chip seemed to be of semi-decent quality; it didn’t melt all over my fingers reflecting a ton of oil.  No, the dark chocolate was solid, with deep cocoa notes.

The chip provided very nice crunchy, and I didn’t feel like they were oily at all.  I loved the contrast of the thick coating of chocolate and the nice crispiness of the chip.  The balance, in my eyes, was perfect.

The salt crystals?  While not entirely visible, I definitely tasted them – there were a few chews here and there where the salt exploded in tiny bursts in my mouth, making the dark chocolate even sweeter.  I really enjoyed that part.

All in all, these were great. I liked the pairing of the dark chocolate better than the milk chocolate mainly because I think the saltiness of the chip worked a lot better with the deeper chocolate flavor. Kinda pricey, but the product definitely delivered.

PURCHASED AT: Target, Germantown, MD

COST: $3.99

    You make me laugh, JFG. “Population YES.” Ha, ha.

    You must be feeling better today? Or do you feel lousy and this was a previously written post? I hope the former!

    Re the superhero sleeping bag, I see NOTHING about a certain critical flap in back. Surely there must be one? Yet I don’t see that on the page. Other than that, YEAH.

  2. Anne Sutton says:

    I loved these chip/confection too! The only problem for me was that I thought there would be more in the bag. I split them with my three kids, and each person barely got three chips. But they were divine!

  3. Sarah says:

    Do they make Wonder Woman? If yes, then it is a total must have! Happy upcoming birthday! Mine is today! So you are a fellow Sagittarius! My birthday has always fallen on thanksgiving week, I could not have picked a better time of year! Family, days off and a double free pass to eat whatever the hell you want! Do you have a birthday cake/ dessert of choice? I always choose yellow cake, lemon filling, vanilla buttercream….the really sweet kind that almost crunches when you eat it!….ohhhh, can’t wait!

  4. Marc P says:

    Wow, does the packaging picture not look like the actual. Haha – great stuff JFG.

    More importantly, Happy Thanksgving all!

  5. Jamie says:

    sorry, I agree with junkfoodgal… it looks like a ski suit.

    but it’s your birthday, if you want to walk around with a toddler ski suit on….. 😉

  6. The Punisher says:

    I don’t see what’s wrong with getting one of those suits and wearing it on the slopes. As you ran over people in your way you would just yell “Hulk SMASH!” Unless you were wearing one of the other superhero costumes.

  7. Sascha says:

    Not a superhero kind of guy, but these would be awesome as team gear, would make those January nights in Green Bay or Buffalo way better.

    At these prices, and at 15 chips a bag, I would almost rather get a bag of Wavy Lays (my favorites anyway, other than Sour Cream & Cheddar Ruffles) and dip them in a jar of Nutella.

    Or maybe Reese’s spread. Ideas.

  8. alek says:

    Why not a blend of milk and dark chocolate mix? Also wondering why they are selling it in smaller bags not in regular bags. I’m going be in D.C area around Jan/Feb hopefully we can see each other

  9. Rachel C. says:

    I liked the milk chocolate better. And thanks for telling me how many calories are in the bag…I never looked at it but now…ahhhhhh!
