Beyond Meat Burger: FUTURISTIC MEATLESS MUNCHIES!


We recently visited the Worlds Fair Nano in Brooklyn, NY, a two-day festival that celebrates all things future and innovation. While searching for snacks, we were treated to a Beyond Meat burger, served by the folks over at The Economist. This plant-based, "clean meat" burger is made entirely of peas and has the effect of being cooked rare thanks to the addition of "meat juices" derived from beets. We thoroughly enjoyed it and felt that the flavor and texture were surprisingly similar to beef.

While we would personally prefer a real, all-beef burger, it was totally fun and exciting to try an example of the meat alternatives that will be shaping our culinary future. In a time when providing enough meat to feed the world's rapidly increasing population is coming into question, different kinds of meatless meat are popping up everywhere and it seems inevitable that alternative proteins will become more a part of our daily diet. In fact, it was recently revealed that Amy's Drive Thru, the country's first meat-free fast food restaurant, is getting ready to expand!

McDonald's Sriracha Mac Sauce: LIMITED EDITION LIAISON!


McDonald's is cranking up the heat with their NEW Limited Edition Sriracha Mac Sauce! Dress your McNuggets with this hot dipping sauce that takes McDonald's signature, tangy Big Mac sauce and kicks it into high gear with a surprisingly bold punch of spicy Sriracha.

We tried this latest McD's concoction on some Chicken McNuggets and instantly fell in love with the fiery, garlicky, slightly sweet flavor. If you're a Sriracha fan, run on over to your local McDonald's and try this sauce out for yourself, while supplies last!

In this competitive climate of hybrid snacks in wild, creative flavors, it's refreshing to see Mars Chocolate release a frank new flavor of M&M's, White Chocolate! This variety is slightly larger than regular plain M&M's, but comes in the same recognizable colors. Inside of each iconic candy shell is a nugget of pure, smooth white chocolate with a simple, sweet taste that is instantly familiar and endearing. If you're a white chocolate fan, give these new M&M's a try!

Hostess Chocolate Peanut Butter Twinkies: NUTS FOR CAKE!


We love everything chocolate with peanut butter so we were especially excited to try out NEW Hostess Chocolate Peanut Butter Twinkies. For this latest Hostess variety, chocolate cake is stuffed with creamy peanut butter filling.

Upon opening the package, the Twinkie had a nice aroma that reminded us of brownies. The cake itself was supremely moist and spongy with a rich chocolate flavor. The Twinkie overall tasted very creamy and chocolaty but we couldn't decipher hardly any peanut butter flavor in the filling. We tried the filling on its own and there was definitely the taste of peanut butter, but when eaten with the cake, chocolate was the dominant flavor and the peanut butter was somewhat lost. Although we wish there were more peanut butter notes, this new snack food product is scrumptious in both flavor and texture and we would certainly eat it again.


SNAX TIP!
Try your Chocolate Peanut Butter Twinkies fresh from the fridge. Coolin' 'em down gives 'em a richer, more dense consistency!
