Taste test: This snack box contained six Late July Organic Classic Rich Crackers, 10 slices of Old Wisconsin Beef Salami, a tub of Copper Cowbell Asiago Gourmet Cheese Spread, a bag containing 4 Mariani Ultimate Apricots and one Chocolate Chunk cookie from Brent & Sam's. It also contained a plastic knife and a Lemon Scented Moist Wipe.
The salami slices were packed in an offset stack inside a shrink-wrapped package. I couldn't get the package open with just my hands, but I was able to with the help of the plastic knife. When I got it open, it looked like these was an oily coating on the whole outside of the stack. I took the top piece and and ate it with a cracker, and it had a super-greasy taste and an equally greasy aftertaste. Just awful. Most of the other salami pieces turned out to be not quite as bad, because only the exposed surfaces were coated in oil; the parts that touched other slices were not oily. I ate some of the slices on crackers coated with the cheese, and that was OK, but still not great because that greasy taste re-emerged a few times. I had some crackers with just the cheese, which was better.
I ate the apricots right after finishing with the crackers, salami and cheese (leaving 3 slices of salami uneaten), and I really didn't think that the apricot taste was good following those other items.
At this point, the meal clearly was not going well, but I figured that a really really good chocolate chip cookie might somehow save the day. The cookie wasn't awful, but it wasn't great either. Just a bland soft cookies, with none of the crisp outside that I would expect from a good chocolate chip cookies. I would not recommend this meal to anyone.
