If you are having a tea party with an old timey English woman, I have the cookie for you!

The latest snack I reviewed was Grandma Wild’s Award Winning Butterscotch Biscuits. If you are to believe the marketing hype behind these little cookies, these fancy cookies are to be enjoyed with a cup of tea and light helping of conversation.

These fancy cookies are based on a recipe that is over 100 years old. Apparently a woman named Annie Wild cooked these same cookies in her home bakery and the cookie’s popularity ran “Wild.” 

Today these cookies are manufactured in England and can be found in fancy people stores everywhere.

As far as the taste, they are actually pretty good. This is a very firm and crunchy cookie that features hunks of hard butterscotch. In fact, this cookie is so firm that you’re going to want to make sure the old timey English woman you are having tea with inserts her full set of dentures.

The ingredients are things like wheat flour sugar, butter, and vegetable oil. There isn’t a single weird sciency ingredient, which kind of refreshing to see. 



These cookies were pretty good, but they are just not all that great. Because of this, I'm giving them a middle of the road grade.

Trader Joe's Chocolate Chip Brownie and Oat Bars are moist, chewy, delicious and the box has a bunch of healthy sounding words on it. I think this snack could be a new staple in my snack drawer.


The most interesting thing I found about this snack was all of the implied health benefits of these bars. The box says that they are baked in whole grain rolled oats and they have five grams of fiber. Also, the bars only have 120 calories! This means that you can satisfy your sweet tooth with a slightly more healthy version of a candy bar.

If you're looking for a snack that tastes just like a brownie and is probably healthier than a candy bar, give Trader Joe's Chocolate Chip Brownie and Oat Bars a try.

These interesting cookies were purchased in Target's dollar section. They come in a six pack and each pack contains a very small amount of Teddy Graham like cookies. One interesting thing I found about these cookies is they are not "actual" chocolate chip cookies. Instead, they are chocolate chip "flavored" cookies and then it is noted that they are artificially flavored. That is just bizarre to me.

I did a little research on the ultra generically titled "Global Brands" company that makes these and discovered that Global Brands owns a company that makes only food that is priced at a dollar. They make fruit snacks, cookies, and energy drinks that are mostly sold in the value sections of grocery stores or at dollar stores.

I am pretty sure these cookies were so cheap, because they were made cheaply. The cookies do not have expensive chocolate and on the back it says the product was made in India.

As for the taste, it's as good as can be expected from a value priced cookie from India with "chocolate chip" flavoring. It's alright, but not what I would call good.

I personally would rather splurge and get a pack of cookies with actual chocolate instead of just chocolate chip flavoring.

These pretzel pieces have to be one of my favorite salty snacks. The packaging says that they are bursting with flavor and I found this to be absolutely true. They are flavored sourdough pretzels that are without a doubt 10 out of 10 snack backs.

Hundred calorie snack packs are all the rage these days but for 40 cal more you can have these awesome Snyder's of Hanover pretzel pieces. They're only 140 calories and I find they are way more filling than any hundred calorie snack pack. The only downsides nutritionally is they have 7 g of fat and about 10% of your daily allowance for sodium.

No one makes a pretzel like Snyder's of Hanover!
