Sean and I were in the vicinity of a Sam's club about a month ago, and I made the comment, "A Sam's Club would certainly come in handy and save me money with all the baking and cooking that I do."
And since I sometimes bake for the public, I could list A'lil Country Sugar as a business.
So we trudged inside and set up a Sam's Club account.
It has been years since I have been inside a Sam's Club, and I was very impressed with their organized set-up.
I remember Sam's Club as being a bulk, discount, just thrown in the building kind of store.
Ok, just looking at the bag, I automatically envisioned Veggie Straws as flavorless with the texture of Styrofoam.
I don't know how you judge a product in a bulk store, but I go by the emptiness of the pallet or shelf.
The Veggie Straws pallet was pretty empty, I turned to Sean and asked, "Do you want to try a bag? They look like a good selling item."
And then another thought went through my head: What are we going to do with this great big bag of Veggie Straws if we don't like them?
We will be forced to eat Styrofoam snacks for a very long time.....I do not throw food away.
Do you remember this snack?
Frito-Lay Company introduced the Muncho chip in 1969.
Sometimes they are hard to find because they are not in demand like Doritos and Fritos.
My memory of the Muncho chip is a good one, and not a good one all at the same time. I first experienced the Muncho when I was a teenager.
My experience was of a crunchy, salty, flavorful chip that I just couldn't get enough of.
I just had to have a big bag of this salty, crispy, goodness, and YES, I ate the whole bag.
The results: A VERY SORE MOUTH! So, whenever I come across a bag of Munchos the painful memory comes flooding back, and the bag of chips are passed over.
You should check out this 1960's commercial for Munchos. It just goes to show how simple things were back in the 1960's.
Anyway, back to the Veggie Straws. I snapped a photo of the nutrition label so you can get a glimpse of the nutrition for yourself.
Not bad at all.
I'm so glad we decided to try this questionable treat.
No preservatives = A+
Gluten free = A+
All natural ingredients = A+
Og trans fat = A+
That's like equal to a whole bag of Munchos with less calories, less fat, and no sore mouth.
As you can see, for my lunch, I didn't even come close to the serving size of 38 straws (and that is Black Forest ham on a hot dog bun).
Just to let you know, the flavor is there....I am 100% satisfied with my on-the-spot decision to try the Garden Veggie Straws.
The next time you visit Sam's Club, pick up a bag. You will not be disappointed.
