MICRO-REVIEW: Toasted Coconut & Sea Salt Triscuit (Martha Stewart Summer Edition)
Today’s junk food: Toasted Coconut & Sea Salt Triscuit (Martha Stewart Summer Edition)!!
Opening this box of Marta Stewart Summer Edition Toasted Coconut & Sea Salt Triscuit, a faint smell of coconut came wafting out. I like coconut, so the smell was pleasant – not over the top, but there enough to know that cococnut is happening. The Triscuits themselves looked no different than other Triscuits I’d had – maybe there was some brownish coconut flake on here, but color-wise it blended in. Popping one into my mouth, I chewed….and quickly fell in love. I dunno what to say – I REALLY liked these. It was a sweet cracker! I can’t think of any previous time that Triscuit has gone the sweet route with its flavor profiles, but I fully endorse this move. The first taste I got was a sweet brown sugar (almost caramel-y) flavor. It was light, however – and then the toasted coconut flavor quickly emerged. The more I chewed, the more the brown sugar/toasted coconut combo tasted almost buttery – the overall flavor sort of reminded me of a sweet coconut oil. Despite this generally sweet flavor, the sea salt helped cut it so that the result flavor was semi-kettle-corn-ish. Like, that perfect balance of sweet and salty that tips slightly toward sweet. Before I knew it, half the box was gone. This lightly sweet cracker was really well done. Nice work, Martha Stewart. I highly recommend these if you (1) like coconut, and (2) want a sweet cracker. Do you like Frosted Mini Wheats? Then you’ll understand where this flavor profile is going. Buy these.
