Review: Stauffer’s Apple Pie Snaps & What Is Your Holiday Main Dish?
JFG Nation, it’s holiday time. A year ago I asked you all whether you had turkey or ham for Christmas? The answer was overwhelmingly anything BUT turkey. So I want to ask it again this year, recognizing that not all of my readers celebrate Christmas but knowing that no matter what you celebrate, there’s gotta be one big ass meal somewhere. I’m sure even people who worship Battlestar Galatica take a break to nibble on a chicken tender or something.
So that’s the question: whenever or however you have your big holiday meal, WHAT IS THE CORE ENTREE? Turkey? Ham? Pasta? A gallon of bourbon? Cylons? Let me know in the comments below.
Today’s junk food: Stauffer’s Apple Pie Snaps!!
Yes, there is a new Nosh Show out. Yes, Hershey’s sent me all three of their new Cookie Crunch varieties. No I’m not writing about either today. Why? Because I really want to talk about these ginger snaps today!
Here’s a fun fact about Stauffer’s – they are the original Animal Cracker maker! Yeah I know Nabisco does those small Barnum & Bailey boxes, but Stauffer’s is the OG.
Stauffer’s Apple Pie Snaps were found in my local grocery, and I have to admit – I’m a sucker for snacks whose packaging is pared down to the basics. Sometimes packaging is all glitz no substance. A waxy brown paper bag like this one screams, “our cookies are so good we don’t need fancy paint to make you like us.”
As soon as I opened the bad I got a strong apple smell. It was crisp, tart, unmistakeable. Biting into one of these cookies, I was immediately impressed – rather than a ginger snap flavor, Stauffer’s took the original molasses cookie and went the apple route. These tasted like apple pie!
The cookies were sweet and had decent cinnamon molasses flavor, and then with each chew the flavor of a tart apple emerged. The combination was delicious – these were crunchy and light yet packed a big flavor punch. Well executed and the flavor was on point.
I knew I’d like these. Definitely worth a buy!
