Sun-Maid Bites – Birthday Cake

Posted in Snack Bars by

Hello everyone! I would just like to start with a little bit of what is going on with me! I left my job in March with nothing lined up, and have been flying by the seat of my pants for the last few months. It’s been a wonderful and much needed change of pace for me and my creativity. Trying to figure out my work-life balance has been a little wonky, but if you have been following me for any amount of time, you would know that has always been a struggle for me. Anywho – I have a ton of snacks to review, some older stuff that has been out for a little bit and of course some new stuff hot off the shelves!

Let’s start with these Sun-Maid Bites. I do not like raisins. There, I said it. I have always thought they were gross. Many food idiosyncrasies for me have to do more with texture than taste, but raisins? Nah. Don’t like them. Never have. Never will.

I am not really sure what possessed me to put these in my hand basket at the store the other day. I think it was the temptation of an overly sweet tasty granola type bite that really drew me in. Birthday cake? Yes please. It appears that these are not new, but new to me, having come out in 2020. Flavors include banana split, s’mores, pb&j, and birthday cake. I was only able to find the birthday cake and pb&j flavors at the store I was at, so I picked both of those up.

The picture above shows you exactly how much you get in this bag. It’s like a bag of chips, half full! I was excited at the tasty prospect from the vanilla drizzle, sprinkles, and cute size (approximately 1″ by 1″). Surely something so festive looking can’t taste like raisins, which I am positive are cleverly hidden in there. And you would be right, they don’t taste like raisins. The initial flavor that hits your tongue is vanilla, shortly followed up by what can only be described as what the smell of Play-Doh smells like.

One was enough for me for these guys – but I decided to have a second to confirm my feelings and yep, Play-Doh smell. Over all, the smell and the texture of these were good, however the taste is pretty off putting. I would not buy these again
