Cracker Jack'D Hearty Mix PB & Chocolate
Taste test: This "jacked" version of Cracker Jacks broke partially from the Cracker Jacks formula, in that it was based on clusters of oats, rather than popcorn, but it did include some peanuts.
Each cluster was coated with either chocolate or peanut butter (but not both), and much like Cracker Jacks, the nuts were separate, not attached to the clusters. The nuts came in two varieties, salted and honey roasted. I started my eating with some of the PB-coated clusters, which had a nice light, crisp crunch and lots of sweet peanut butter flavor. I'm not generally a huge fan of oats, particularly their texture, but the clusters didn't feel or taste much like oats, so that was good. The chocolate clusters had an even more intense taste than the peanut butter ones, serving up lots of chocolate without being overly sweet. The honey-roasted nuts were very good and fit into the mix well, but the plain salted nuts did not; they just seemed too ordinary compared with everything else. Still, this was a very good mix, particularly the way that it contained so many oats yet didn't taste like it did.
