Not so good: Baby Star Crispy Chicken Noodle Snack!

It was bound to happen, and it’s bound to happen again due to the nature of this blog. We’re going to run into that occasional bad apple here at Snack Overload! And so, we will begin our ‘Not so good’ section with dried chow-mein like snacks.

There are so many red flags on this bag, yet we decided to try them anyhow. The brand name itself doesn’t help. The jaundiced child on the front seemed to claim that these were chicken flavored yet upon opening and trying one of these crispy noodles all that was left was an aftertaste of sadness and disappointment. Due to their small size and consistency of broken dried spaghetti, you’re bound to make a mess trying to get these out of the bag to begin with. They also tasted like burnt bread, which didn’t remind us of chicken at all.
The only thing I could think of after choking down my first and last handful of baby star snacks was the flavor betrayal I was experiencing. Avoid at all costs.
