Good morning all!
Today I am bringing to you something tasty from ye ole Chex Mix. I am not a huge muddy buddy fan, despite my love for peanut butter and chocolate. Actually I am not a fan of the Chex Mix made version, homemade? Yes please! Anyways, when I saw the brownie supreme something told me that I needed to try it – most likely the fact that I havnt seen it perched on the shelves of my local Walmart before. I grabbed a few other things like another box of Peanut Butter Toast Crunch and a delicious drink that I will be sharing with you all tomorrow and went for the check out lanes.
Nothing about this bag seemed out of the ordinary until I opened it. Prepare yourself for what you are about to see.
WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THAT. Now, being a snack lover my entire life, I am familiar with the occasional ball of seasoning wrapped around a burnt chip nugget in a bag of chips, but this, this is… WOW. This wasn’t even buried at the bottom of the bag for me to discover like some sort of Cracker Jack prize, it was happily perched right in the top of the bag, staring up at me when I opened it. Hello, quality control. Normally a friend would dare you or even double dog dare you to eat the flavor nugget, but there was no way in hell that I would even consider taking a bite out of this turd. (let’s face it, that is exactly what this looks like) I waffled for a few about whether or not the rest of the bag was worthy of eating, and decided that it was and dug in.
Normally my routine for my reviews is that I examine the outside of the bag, take a picture, open the bag up, examine the contents and then take another picture. Well I kind of sucked at the last part there, but I partially blame the alien egg inside of my bag of Chex Mix and I also blame the video game Terreria. My brain goes into autopilot when it comes to normal things such as snacking, checking my phone, etc. when it comes to playing an addicting game like Terreria. Before I knew it, I was reaching into an empty bag of Chex Mix Brownie Supreme. OOPS.
Much like the peppermint bark Chex Mix, the brownie supreme version will coat you in brown dust and make you look like you have tons of dirt caked under your nails. Always a nice sight. This snack is best poured into the hand vs, digging in like you would with a bag of chips, but I was too buried, literally and figuratively in my game to even bother with that, plus you can’t hold an Xbox 360 controller in one hand and still play. I think my biggest qualm with the normal Muddy Buddy mix from Chex Mix is that it tastes really artificial to me. I don’t know if it is the extreme coating of what I can only guess is a box of brownie mix on the outside or if they changed something in the ingredients, but the brownie supreme version is rather tasty. Again, much like my complaint with the peppermint bark version, I really wish that they would use a rice Chex vs a corn Chex. There is just something about the flavors that makes it just slightly weird.
Texture: 5/5 - The crunchy corn Chex in the middle makes for a nice snacking experience. The powdery outside makes for a real mess, but the chocolate is smooth and tasty.
Smell: 4/5 - When opening the bag the one and only thing that you will smell is sugar and chocolate.
Appearance: 3/5 - There is nothing special about the appearance of these guys. They are little square blobs in the bag.
Taste: 4/5 - I don’t really know what makes something supreme vs regular, but these guys are good. If you are looking for a bakery brownie taste, these are not for you, and I think you could probably achieve the flavor at home if you poured some melted chocolate on corn Chex and then dumped some brownie mix on top of them. I liked them, but I probably wouldn’t buy them again, and instead just buy a brownie.
