For the most part the life of the candy critic is all about craving sweets, chocolates, suckers, whatever. Every once in a while though I go to the other side, I would call it the dark side but that would be a little harsh. It's grayer than anything; it's all about the salty snacks. So at my local candy store I came across these little treats. As usual I picked up the pack and inspected it thoroughly. I was on the fence as to whether or not I should go for it, than I read a line that locked it for me. There are these funny little warnings on the pack and one of them said "Hazardously Knobbly" it killed me. I mean what kind of person uses a word like "Hazardously" (This is a sarcastic joke please read it as such.) So I picked up the treats and was about as built-up for them as this intro is long. I bit into them and have to say they were a little disgusting. They tasted like a bitter, burnt cracker with some kind of sour cheese-like flavour. I won't say that they were the worst things I've ever eaten but found it difficult to make it through the whole pack. My friend Larissa claims to enjoy them but she's really into the bitter strange treats. I saw her go nuts on a bag of wasabi peas, something I just can't do. So to some, like Larissa, this treat works, but for me I'm just glad they came in a small bag.
