The other day, a few of us were in a meeting and one of my co-workers brought in a box of Nabisco Tomato-Basil Wheat Thins.
In my opinion, that’s crossing the line.
I can understand Sour-cream and onion. I’m ok with Fat-free. I can even stoop to Ranch or Honey… but Tomato-Basil… now we’re introducing chicken maranades into our crackers.
Who is coming up with this stuff? Somewhere in Snack-cracker Land, there’s a lab with a bunch of reject snack flavors sitting on a shelf: Chocolate and salmon, Asparagus-Kiwi, Orange-hot mustard, Mint-Avacado, Clam-cola, Hamburger-Strawberry…. They must have figured, “people like our crackers… people like Basil with Tomato… I think we have a winner.”
No, you don’t.
Random flavors being thrown together to form a new delicacy doesn’t constitute a “winner.”
I’m going to have to try to come up with a flavor of my own to get rich off of:
I think we have a winner.
