The people have spoken! The winner of the Goldfish Grahams taste test poll is…. French Toast!
First off, these grahams come in a plastic sack instead of paper, and it’s nearly impossible to open without ripping it, even if you’re careful. It seriously took me 90 seconds to fully open it, and I still tore it. The glue used to seal this bag could have been used to seal the BP oil rig leak.
Here’s a pic of a graham next to a regular fish:
They’re about the same size, but they’re solid and covered in “taste crystals” (sugar), so they’re messier than regular fish. My first reaction after eating some was that they tasted just like Teddy Grahams. I could only taste cinnamon at first, but after a few seconds, the french toast taste kicked in. Not too shabby! After a few more of these lil guys, I realized that I could keep eating more, but I see an end in sight; I could see myself getting sick of them after a while. They’re way more rich than standard Goldfish, and maybe it’s because I prefer salty to sweet, but this isn’t a snack that I see myself craving in the future. Don’t get me wrong though, by the time I typed this sentence, I’d had about 6 handfuls of them… but after a night out, I don’t envision me doing something like this:
So try ’em if you like Teddy Grahams or sweet snacks, but if you’re looking for something similar to Goldfish, get something else. Or get some real f*ckin’ french toast.
