Golden Grahams Treats

NYCWD and I are bringing you more Love’s Truck Stop treats! This week it’s a battle between Golden Grahams Treats Peanut Butter Chocolate versus Chocolate Marshmallow. The cereal is made by General Mills but they sell these treats under a smaller company, probably a convenience store company, and I have yet to find it. No matter, we can still taste them and tell you if they’re good or bad.

Both of us agreed: The Golden Grahams Peanut Butter Chocolate bar was absolutely disgusting. It looked and tasted like CRAP. Off camera we let Georgie take a whiff of just a peanut butter chunk of the Peanut Butter Chocolate bar with no chocolate attached (note to everyone: NEVER feed chocolate to cats) but she wouldn’t even entertain the idea of being interested in it. But that Chocolate Marshmallow bar was delicious! We finished that one after filming. Loved the consistency, it was sweet but not sickeningly so, and it wasn’t messy! Yes, tons of sugar in both. But the sugar in the Peanut Butter Chocolate is completely overwhelming, the bar is sticky, and it just doesn’t taste like you’re supposed to eat it.

I couldn’t find any official General Mills information about these bars so, just like with Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats, I had to scan in the wrappers:

Lots of allergens, so be careful. Also, gelatin is not vegetarian.

When NYCWD joins us we throw nutrition out the window and just care about taste and the shiny package.

  1. Wah! They look totally delicious but I can’t have them because they’re loaded with gelatin! Double-Wah!

    Hooray, all-star host power!

    I have to say, while it’s nice when you get to review tasty stuff, the yuckfaces are wildly entertaining. Too bad about the bar, though – You’d think that it’s damn near impossible to make something with peanut butter taste that horrible.

    And again, you two really should do more episodes together. You’re so fun and adorable like that!

    PS: On the light-up box thing: The first time I saw that, I thought “Oh, hey, dystopian future from the movies, there we go”.

    PPS: Not a surprise that a cat would be terrified of a rodent with human intelligence, size and resources. The vengeance…!

  3. Cereal bar, blah, blah, blah… why is Dawg wearing a Tennessee hat?! I know it’s orange, but Florida’s colors are ORANGE and blue! Must I send one?

  4. You two make my day! The faces while eating the peanut butter stuff were priceless. “When NYCWD joins us we throw nutrition out the window and just care about taste and the shiny package” are words to live by as far as I am concerned. By the way, that Chipmunks’ song is Marvin’s favorite.
