Get Canucked Sweet ‘n Savoury July 2018 Review
Instead of traditional info sheet, the box includes a sheet directing you to the website for more information about the box.
Christie Crispers, 70 g – Buy a 175 g bag for $4.29
This was my first time getting to try the “all dressed” flavor that Canadians get to experience regularly, and it was a trip! My mind couldn’t decide if I was tasting bbq, ketchup, or salt and vinegar. While they confused my taste buds, they were overall enjoyable!
Hostess Hickory Sticks, 2 47 g bags – Buy 60 packs for $67.99
These had the lighter texture of a Pringle and the hickory provided a hint of BBQ flavor without actually making these BBQ sticks. It was easy to eat the entire bag in one sitting, so luckily two bags were provided.
Lay’s Ketchup, 40 g – Buy 40 bags for $32.98
I try to keep an open mind. I like ketchup with my French fries, and occasionally I even like ketchup with my chicken tacos (don’t judge). I like lays chips. But wow, ketchup lays should not be a thing. They smell exactly like ketchup. They taste exactly like ketchup. Ketchup belongs with French fries, not solidified in chip form.
President’s Choice The Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookie, 300 g – Buy a 350 g package for $4.89 (found here for 3.89)
I have high expectations for cookies that have the word “decadent” in the name, and unfortunately, these fell a little. The quality of the chocolate chips was good, but these were a little too crunchy for this soft-cookie lover. These were still pretty tasty after being dipped into a glass of milk, but they aren’t what I think of when I think of decadent cookies.
These limited edition Jurassic World Doritos are available in Canada only based on my online perusing. Once I opened the bag I was greeted with the scent of beef jerky, which I thought was interesting considering this was a bag of tortilla chips. These didn’t taste like beef jerky, but they definitely didn’t pack the punch of flavor you expect from Doritos. The flavor was still pleasant, but it was a bit mild compared to what I was expecting.
Hawkins Cheezies, 2 28 g bags – Buy a 210g bag for $7.51
These reminded me of Cheetos with a touch more natural cheese flavor. As both a cheese and Cheetos lover, these were a hit. Yay for getting two bags!
Maynard’s Fuzzy Peach, 64g – Buy a 355g for $10.98
I love peach flavored gummies so these were right up my alley. The peach flavor was extra juicy and the sugar coating was a nice touch. Overall, a solid snack.
Nestle Mackintosh Toffee Bars, 45g – Buy a 12 pack for $18.99
This toffee bar was an experience—the toffee was very, very hard and you couldn’t exactly bite it without worrying about cracking a tooth. The toffee itself was really buttery and delicious, and it reminded me of the caramel in a caramel apple lollipop. I ended up just sucking on this bar until I could chew off small pieces, which was a bit awkward considering the size. Luckily, I was in the comfort of my own home and was able to eat this, however, I pleased without other people witnessing me basically making out with a toffee bar.
Maynard’s Wine Gums, 44 g – Buy a 190 g bag for $5
These wine gums, sadly, do not contain wine. Misnomer aside, these reminded me a lot of the American candy Dots. These had a firm yet very chewy texture, and the fruit flavor was strong and juicy.
Miss Vickie’s Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar Chips, 1.375 oz – Buy a pack of 64 for $44.95
I love salt and vinegar chips and these were pretty stellar. I have seen Miss Vickie’s before, but not the salt and vinegar version. These had that good bite from the vinegar without totally destroying my taste buds, and the chips had awesome texture.
Verdict: This was my first experience with the Get Canucked box, and it was fun! Some of the snacks had me going no way Jose, but overall it was interesting to see what those up North snack on—both the similarities and the differences. This definitely is a bit of a pricey snack box, however. I see this primarily appealing to Canadians now living in the States with no access to the treats they grew up with, or those who want to experience the unique treats as a one-off. I am definitely excited to see what my taste buds will experience next month from Get Canucked!
