REVIEW: Candy Cane Flipz

What’s your favorite flavor combination? Is it peanut butter & jelly? Chocolate & peanut butter, maybe? What about chocolate on chocolate? If you ask any dentist, the answer is probably mint & salt. You know that wonderful flavor when you go a little too HAM brushing your teeth and then have to rinse your mouth with salt water to clean your wounds?

Introducing Candy Cane Flipz!

Ok, that was a little harsh. I haven’t even tried these Candy Cane Flipz yet, but peppermint coated pretzels wasn’t exactly something that peaked my interest on paper. The words “limited edition,” however, do peak not only my interest but other things as well. On top of that, these Candy Cane Flipz are shaped like snowflakes which means winter which means Christmas! Surely you’ve heard by now that I lose my shit for Christmas stuff, which is why I built a Christmas Tree out of Flipz on the floor before I even tried them.

I was pretty impressed by my tree, until I uploaded that picture. Note that one of the two shapes they provide is a star, and yet I curiously opted for the hexagon snowflake to top my tree instead. I can’t do anything correctly.

Trying a few Candy Cane Flipz, there is an obvious dirt flavor because I definitely don’t clean my floor correctly, either. Luckily, there is plenty of peppermint flavor to clean things up. The mint flavor here is very pronounced but not offputting, thanks to the super creamy, super sweet vehicle through which it’s delivered – a thick candy coating. Candy Cane Flipz aren’t mouthwashy at all, so that’s pretty cool.

The pretzels, as you’d expect, offer a satisfying crunch that kinda make me think I’m snapping through an actual candy cane. I promise this is the safer option (half-eaten candy canes are actual murder weapons). As for the salt element? It’s well-balanced! The salt doesn’t clash with the mint as I had feared… instead, the bursts of saltiness make both the mint and the sweet cream flavor pop as you munch on the pretzels. Anyone with a basic understanding of culinary art probably could have guessed this, but not me. I thought these were going to taste like candy canes that washed ashore. I really have no business reviewing food, and you should look anywhere else for a better opinion. Guys, it’s so damn easy to make your own website.

At the end of the day, I really enjoyed these Candy Cane Flipz. I say “at end of the day” under literal circumstance, because I have been eating them all day. I gotta admit, though… there are better ways to spend your calories. These things are pretty terrible for you, with a serving size of just 4 pretzels setting you back 140 calories with 13g of sugar. They don’t print nutrition labels to the serving size of “All Day,” so who knows exactly how much fatter I just got. At this steep penalty, I’d much rather stick with Birthday Cake Flipz and those tiny little flecks that I loved so dearly. In case you didn’t know, there are no calories in flecks because they’re not even food. But if you like pretzels, peppermint, or eating food immediately after a teeth cleaning, I recommend you give Candy Cane Flipz a shot before they disappear. But you probably won’t be able to find them, as is the case with most of the stuff we review here at Junk Banter.
