Before we start, let's look at the marketing:
'These crunchy little morsels are Slowly Dry-Roasted [why are these capitalized?] with a pinch of sea salt, lightly glazed with sweetness, then lovingly [...] packaged to guarantee freshness.'
Isn't that precious? Oh and check out the HEALTHY BENEFITS:
- All Natural
- 100% Vegan
- Gluten Free
- No Preservatives
- Contains No Peanuts
Alright, enough jibba-jabba. Judges are just me and the BF tonight - can't really feed the cat sugared cashews. Anyway, we're digging in.
Boyfriend: Hmmm...that's nice. Like the roasted nut cart on the corner, but nice. It's clearly not health food. But I'm surprised...definitely not the rice cakes from Hell.
Me? Yeah, I like it. It's really pretty good. Damn you, Duane. You win this round.
Final vote: 2 Duane Reade, 0 IHDR.
Star rating: 4 out of 5 stars. (Come on, Ed McMahon didn't give these out lightly, so neither am I.)
