Unfortunately I didn’t get to see my 3 year old nephew who likes Teddy Grahams to have him compare these but I get the feeling he’s not too picky when it comes to second rate versions of snacks. Ethan and I evaluated these on our own. Admittedly we’re not graham cracker connoisseurs, and I’ve never had either of these products but it looked like a perfect showdown waiting to happen.
These little cookies are probably about an inch high with a shiny glaze of sugar/honey/high fructose corn syrup. I felt they were a little bland but Ethan said he thought graham crackers are supposed to be bland anyway. So there was really nothing too noteworthy about these, I didn’t really taste any honey flavor but we did both like that they had a good satisfying crunch.
Teddy Bear Cookies:
Right off I wasn’t crazy about these because they look like this lady I used to work with that would come into my office and complain all day. Although they were larger, we both found these to be even more tasteless than Teddy Grahams. These had the taste and softer crunch similar to an animal cracker. There was some weird, unnatural aftertaste that we just couldn’t put out finger on but we didn’t like it.
Teddy Grahams wins for having a good hearty crunch and no weird aftertaste. Other than that they’re pretty bland, but in this case not questioning what flavor you’re tasting is a winning factor. Plus the fact they they didn’t remind me of long days in the office listing to Ruth ramble on about how she gets no respect from her work-study students might have had something to do with it but I do have Ethan’s opinion to back me up on the decision.
