    Haha, you buy the funniest things, Hannah! Good for being brave to try such wacky items! 🙂

    You know I totally would have bought that toffee cheese as well. I have to admit my teeth started to ache by the final photo. I commend your commitment to research 🙂

    That cheese! It really does so revolting. Why would anyone think there was a market for such a cheese? And I really don’t think peanut butter needs to be blended with anything. Can we not just have a nut butter then in what we’d like to add? If anything at all? How is your French? Is it easier to learn in a country French is spoken or is it too easy to rely on English because that is also spoken? xx

    Oh, the horror, the horror! I’m glad that at least you could end your post on a good note with Cracker Jack.

    Toffee and cheese? Oh please god no. It’s like Homer’s “Nuts & Gum” – together at last!

    whhaaa? Caramel and peanut popcorn…YESSSS!
    haha, I could never think that a Hannah the Terrible would exist. Now I’m having Wicked comparison thoughts and now that I am I must ask “How then, did Hannah become Terrible? Was it to much of that honey flavored peanut butter that didn’t taste like peanut butter? LOL

  8. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Hehe I found that the bad could go oh so bad there! And what happened to that peanut butter? It should have been MAGIC!

    Sticky Toffee Cheese? I really, really hope that I would have had the insight not to buy it. I have had cheese chocolates from Jean Paul Hevin in Paris, and they were actually pretty amazing, despite my initial reservations. Crackerjack is good? I’ve got a box still sitting in the pantry untried from when I brought it back from Texas 18 months ago. Perhaps I’ll have to try it? I’d totally go the Caramel Hat Trick too, although always have a fondness for Chunky Monkey.

    That cheese idea made me scared. Legit.
    Your research bravery is awesome!

    I will just say that she didn’t learn this atrocious snack buying habit from home! What is it with all this weird flavours upon flavours, this adulteration of pure taste, that snack makers feel they have to do these days? Give me a nice plain potato chip any day and I’m happy as larry! So glad you didn’t like most of these Hannah!

    I laughed out loud at the sticky toffee cheese. Cinnamon Pops sound revolting – I used to LOOOVE Corn Pops, but always hated Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Now what if you put some of the Cracker Jacks on top of the caramel ice cream? Better or worse? Discuss.

    Sticky Toffee Cheese just sounds WRONG! Kudos to you for even trying it.

  14. Ashley

    Gosh, you have to wonder how people think of these things sometimes! Why would you put sticky toffee and cheese in the name of a product?!

  15. Emma

    Oh no, not POPS GRINCHEUX! I’ll put my POPS on your gazon, just try and stop me:)

      hehe. spelled my middle name lousie in my email address. oops:D

  16. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oh, how I love these posts. You have no idea how soothing it is to sit here procrastinating paper revisions with a morning cup of coffee and a post like this 🙂 (Let’s not get into how unproductive it is to interrupt my work day 1 hour in with blog reading.)

    I am particularly intrigued by the Cracker Jacks, in part because they sound great and in part because the UK has Snack A Jacks which now look like they may be a healthier rip off of the Cracker Jack approach. I am particularly repulsed by the cheese, but you could probably have guessed that 😉 .

    Oh my goodness! Im ashamed to see that we sell these things in Canada! I think it’s time for you to come back to my place dearie 😉

    “Sticky Toffee Cheese” – honestly, even I gagged at that one!

  19. Libby

    Sticky toffee cheese?! Oh man, I don’t even want to…. :/

  20. Hannah

    Oh, Hannah, that cheese… That cheese is the stuff of nightmares, in every way possible! These things just shouldn’t happen. Your poor, assaulted taste buds.

  21. Johanna GGG

    so much promise and so much disappointment – the cheese was the one that really excited me – it is even worse if they make a horrid food out of such a good idea!

    and my stomach gave a lurch at the peanut butter because I opened a new jar of peanut butter today only to discover it wasn’t 100% peanuts which is my preference – peanut butter should taste of just peanuts!

    Glad the cracker jack made you happy and that there was some fun packaging along the way

    Skippy the bush kangaroo is playing on repeat in my head. *you did this*

  23. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Wow, we really didn’t fare so well this round eh? Hope we can do better next time!

    I haven’t even read your post yet, all I saw was Sticky Toffee Cheese and I had to come and express the W.T.F.ness.
