152: Kar’s Sweet ‘N Salty Mix

You know that screenplay in your dresser drawer, the one you pull out every few years and tinker with? The plot’s a little uneven, and the dialogue certainly needs polish, but you are positive that the central premise is solid: a modern adaptation of Romeo & Juliet, but with a potato chip and a piece of chocolate-covered carmel as the starcrossed lovers, forever prevented from being together by a society that will never–never!–let the savory and sweet worlds intermingle.

Yeah, bad news champ. Kar’s has once again ruined everything for everybody:

Noooo! And you had that great “Wherefore art thou, Rolo?” line!

If the back of the package is to believed, eating this will cause “your yin to high-five your yang in delicious fashion”. Honestly, I find that easier to believe than the claim that this bag contains 3.5 servings.

With a net weight of 3.5oz., that works out to about an ounce of trail mix per serving. (MATH!!!!) Perfect for when you are hiking the 15 foot trail from your back door to your tool shed.

The back of the package also says “We’d Like to Know What You Think.” OK!

Rating: I like chocolate candies and I like peanuts and I like raisins, but add a handful of sunflower kernels to anything and suddenly you’re eating birdseed. Although if you consider one ounce of anything to be a “serving”, then you are already eating like a bird. 40¢/$1.

    Huh. I consider an ounce of nut-type items to be a reasonable serving for a snack – if you look at the calories, that’s a reasonable amount for a snack.

    Shame on you for not working a “deez nuts” joke in there.

    Does your vending machine have, like, 5 rows of bear claws at the bottom? If so, will you be reviewing them 5 times? If not, sorry for your loss.

    Did you really mean RomeRo and Juliet? Because that’s an idea you could take to that publishing house that’s already sticking zombies and vampires into every classic.
