Hmmm…about a year ago Eick sent me some food in the mail, and I made a promise I could not keep….at the time.Â I could give everyone a long-drawn-out excuse for my writing truancy…but…
THE STIX BECKON.
Shape and Texture: They are stix goddamn it.Â Like a thick cracker cut into some stix.Â Stix.Â Good god my spell check hates these stix.
Flavor: The chipotle pepper stix weren’t so bad.Â They were spicy and a little bit salty, but the flavors were not bold enough for me.
Cinnamon Kick: Yes, technically this is also a flavor, but it was so fugging awful that it deserved its own category.Â When you have a stick-type product that is covered in cinnamon, where does the mind travel?Â Perhaps to a frosting-type substance one could dunk said sticks in?Â I bit into this stix and spit it out.Â My wife actually gagged her mouthful into the sink.Â Salty and cinnamony, but kettle corn this is not.Â There should be a warning on this flavor that screams audibly from the box, “I’M FUCKING SALTY!!!Â I AM NOT A SUGARY TREAT.”
Consensus: Ranked from 0 being awful and 10 being fantabulous, I give Wheat Thins Stix a long-awaited and full-hearted 4.Â In a market saturated with products that I can dunk into various dips, I just can’t help but feel that Wheat Thins Stix are rather redundant, and quite frankly, the Cinnamon Kick flavor tempted me to grade this product even lower.
