As previously noted, we cakers like to steal popular food items, add some weird ingredients and then reclaim that food as our own. (See Quick and Easy Skor Bars as an example.) These Clod Hoppers are no different. Chocolatey. Salty. Graham crackery. In fact, I had to wonder: are these better than the original?
I conducted a taste test with myself and, well, myself and I found these Clod Hoppers tasted way better than the ones I bought at Bulk Barn. The ones from Bulk Barn had a faint cumin flavour. Although, if we're going to be honest, most things from Bulk Barn have a faint cumin flavour.
But don’t take my word for it. I brought these into the office and they were gone before I could even ask, “Any of you guys want to check out my new Beta video player this weekend?”
