Every once in a while I come across a treat that I' pretty sure is going to do ok in the novelty category before I even open the package. It's rare, and never 100% sure, but I'm fairly certain that these are going to do fine and I haven't even opened the package. I say this because the idea for this snack is clever and it makes some sense. I'm intrigued and looking forward to trying something that I myself can't believe anyone has thought of before.

Wow, this is crazy, it's pretty much what I expected, candy coated, chocolate covered corn nuts. It's a strange combination if you sit and think about it too much but if you just eat it and take it for what it's worth they're pretty tasty. The flavour is fairly sweet at first but once you start chewing on them a little the salty flavour comes out and works just perfectly. If you happen to be a fan of the sweet and salty contrast you'll absolutely love these.

The texture is the only place I can find any fault. It's not that there's anybody to blame for it or anything I just find the texture of the corn nuts to be a little strange. When you chew them with the chocolate it reminds me of eating bubble gum ice cream in a cone.
