Am I the only person on the planet that has never made muddy buddies? Muddy buddies/puppy chow has never been a staple in my house, but it is definitely something I have always liked – I wonder why we never made it? When I heard that these were coming out, I was instantly excited because I love pretzels. I LOVE PRETZELS. Hands down my favorite snack food ever made. Pretzel sticks, pretzel rods, big chonky hard pretzels, soft pretzels, pretzel bagels, just give me all the pretzels.
Despite having the size on the outside of the bag, I am not sure what I was expecting when I opened it. A sea of tiny nuggets staring back at me. They are using the chocolate as the adhesive for the “cream” part which is essentially powdered sugar, which one would expect with a muddy buddy. I did not really get cookies and cream vibes from the overall flavor of these, more like a sweet pretzel. I was hoping for a little more saltiness from the pretzel inside, but that was pretty lacking. I wish that the outside had some sort of chocolate crumbles which I think would have added to the chocolate flavor as well as given it a nice texture. Overall these were good, but I didn’t really feel like they were cookies and cream flavored. Definitely pour a little in a bowl, because if you eat them straight out of the bag, you will eat the entire bag because these lil nugs are so small and easy to pop into your mouth, especially if you are doing something like playing a video game. I would not buy these again, only because I can think of other things that I would like more, not because these are bad.Found at Power Mart gas station
