Duane Reade 'Delish' Taste Test: Cashew Crunch

Tonight's treat is DeLisH's All Natural Cashew Crunch. I'm feeling pretty optimistic about this one because for me, you can wrap a cashew with fiberglass and I'd still eat it. The bar's pretty low.

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
  • Kosher
  • Wheat-Free
  • Cholesterol-Free
  • No Preservatives
  • Dairy-Free
  • Contains No Peanuts
Are we still eating food here?

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.)

I'm kind of hooked on these. Visited NYC last week and bought a number of packages. Wish I could find them locally.

Thanks for this, I love these things but I don't think you mentioned that they are low-carb too. I started a low-carb diet and have found it impossible to find crunchy sweet things that are low in carbs. The almond crunch is lower than the cashew crunch but they're both delish. Aaanyway, I think I can give you reason to go back to hating Duane Reade. They jumped in price from $1.68 to $3.98 overnight. Argh!!!
