Sometimes when AD and I make a trip to Wally World or his larger warehouse store we enjoy taste-testing new products that they are demonstrating.
99.9% of the time they are things that we're pretty sure we'll like. After all, who wants to try something they think they'll NOT like?
So a couple of weeks ago I was shopping in Wally World and a demonstrator asked if I'd like to try a new flavor of Triscuit - Cracked Pepper and Olive Oil.
Now she happened to ask me at just the right time because it was past noontime and I hadn't had lunch yet. I was pretty hungry.
And let me add that, #1 - I've never liked Triscuits. The taste and the texture are too close to shredded wheat for me and #2 - I don't like pepper.
But like I said, I was hungry so I tried one along with a piece of cheddar cheese. It actually had a taste - a little zip - to it other than the plain old 'shredded wheat' taste. Not an overwhelming pepper taste, just a little pizazz if you will.
I liked it so much I bought a box and brought it home. I told AD I had something for him to try. Now he likes Triscuits but he likes pepper about as well as I do and he was pretty iffy on olive oil part. But he tried one and agreed. The Cracked Pepper and Olive Oil Triscuits get our seal of approval - not that it counts for anything at all but you might want to give them a try sometime.
This is one of the ways I'll eat them for sure. Back in the day when my dad would be watching baseball or football on tv, he'd often make himself a plate of crackers, cheese, bologna and dill pickle slices as a snack. And I took a liking to that same snack.
P.S. Pardon the Christmas paper plate but we bought a big bag of them at the warehouse store last year - or maybe it was the year before that? - and we're still using them.
