Canada Snacks Tasting

I recently got my hands on some snacks that are from Canada. I've never seen these before in my life until now, and I'd like to share my thoughts.

Passion Flakie - On the lower right section of the photo. They have a pastry like outside that's flaky. The inside was white cream and fruit stuff, which tasted really similar to Little Debbie's Strawberry Shortcake Rolls. I had a conversation with an associate about them:

"It looks like something you would put in the toaster."
"You don't need to toast it."
"But it looks like something you would toast."
"No."
"It looks like something you would toast."
"No."
"It looks like something you would toast."
"No."

They taste pretty good and it's fun to eat the top off of it then be able to go at the middle part by itself.

Crispy Crunch - This candy bar was a deceiver because the paper tray thing the candy bar sits on is dark colored like chocolate, so when I opened up the packaging from the back side first, I was mildly shocked. What kind of candy has a tray thing that isn't white colored? Probably there is one that I just can't think of at the moment, but it still was scocking and I dropped the candy due to my being momentarily flustered. The candy bar itself tastes like a butterfinger, but more peanuty, and it is really good at getting stuck on my teeth!

Mr. Big - Mr. Big is crazy huge. After I carefully opened it to keep the packaging intact, I saw that part of it had caramel that had leaked out of it. It looked really intimidating, but once I bit into it, I saw that most of it was wafer, so it's not a heavy candy bar. This is definitely my favorite of all five foods here, and I think it has the best name too.

Ketchup Chips - I've never eaten chips that were ketchup flavored, so this was a surprise. They actually tasted ketchup flavored! Crazy.

All Dressed Chips - I thought ketchup was pushing it, but these are ridiculous. I don't even know what they're supposed to taste like. The bag has a picture of a red pepper, a salt shaker, and an onion, so they probably have those flavors in it, maybe with things like onion, garlic, sour cream, vinegar, bbq, ranch and bacon too. I really don't know. They're orange in color and really intense. I couldn't handle more than one at a time at first. I don't quite know what to make of it, but if I saw it I would consider getting it again.

Resee's cups, dude! They have the thin, brown paper cup-tray. I think people have tried to sell us enough Resee's cups over the years that you'd remember that.

You definitely have to try poutine now.
