MICRO-REVIEW: Pepperidge Farm Chocolate Mint & Pretzel Goldfish Mix
Today’s junk food: Pepperidge Farm Chocolate Mint & Pretzel Goldfish Mix!!
Pepperidge Farm Chocolate Mint & Pretzel Goldfish Mix is another new snack mix released at the same time as the honey mustard mix I reviewed last week. This one was not as successful for me. The chocolate mint cookie pieces tasted sort of like the inside of a Thin Mint – nice and light and crunchy, and the chocolate mint flavor was bold but not overly sweet. I liked the subtlety and restraint.
But the salty pretzel added in was a little weird. The pretzels itself were good, but salty mint? I feel like I MUST have tried that in other places, but I couldn’t pinpoint where. It’s not that it’s a bad combo, and I noshed a good number of handfuls, but it’s not the most natural pairing. I give PF credit for the effort, but I wouldn’t buy these again.
Regular chocolate cookie with pretzel? I can dig it. The mint threw everything off for me.
