I was surprised to see a new flavor of Little Bites that were not holiday themed. I sampled the pumpkin flavored ones, which I thought tasted a smidge like soap. I don’t know if that makes sense, but that’s okay. I really enjoy snicker doodle cookies, Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, cinnamon and sugar on toast, and coffee cake, so I figured these couldn’t be that bad.
I was a bit surprised to open the package and see just four of these little guys staring back at me. They are about the size of a small donut hole and smell delicious. From my previous experience with the pumpkin flavor and the classic blueberry flavor, I knew that these were going to be moist. I don’t know if its intended that they be almost on the “I just undercooked these muffins and they are a little doughy/gooey” side or if its because they are trapped inside of thick plastic that keeps them from drying out, but these were moist as expected. They have the overall taste of cinnamon and sugar baked through, but also have small little crunchy pieces (really small) baked in as well. I must say the outsides of the muffins were a tad dry, but it didn’t ruin the overall flavor or texture. I think these would be a nice compliment to a cup of coffee or hot chocolate.
Texture: 4/5 – These had the moist texture of a fresh baked muffin. The outside was a little dry, but overall appealing.
Smell: 4/4 – Upon opening the package, I got a nice waft of sweetness and cinnamon.
Appearance: 3/5 – I was disappointed at how few were in the bag. I think I would have felt less ripped off if the bag was smaller. The overall exterior was inviting, though upon first glance I was unsure if they were supposed to be spotty as the picture on the box showed otherwise.
Taste: 4/5 – I enjoyed these and would venture to say that of the flavors I have tasted these have been my favorite. I think they stand well alone as a quick breakfast or lunch dessert and would also be a nice compliment to a hot beverage. Overall I really liked them.
