Product Review ~ Bodacious Food Company Jaxn's Twiced-Baked Potato Stix

Today I would like to introduce you to the Bodacious Food Company who makes and sells a variety of great tasting snack foods. When you check out their product line up you will find cheese straws, all natural cookies, Jaxn's twiced-baked potato stix and more! Each of these snack lines have a variety of delicious flavors within it.

The generous folks at Bodacious Food Company sent me a large box of snack foods to try out and review for all of you. I will be breaking down these reviews into several reviews so that I can adequately write about each one.

My Review: For this review I received a 6 oz. bag of Jaxn's Twice-Baked Potato Stix in the Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper flavor. This is an all-natural, gluten-free snack that has been baked and not fried! The Jaxn's potato stix are great served with soups, salads, sandwiches or dunked into your favorite dip for a tasty snack. When we opened this bag I wasn't sure if I would like them since they have cracked pepper seasoning and I am not a fan of pepper. Sure enough...I didn't care for these at all. I do love sea salt on my snack foods so I probably would of liked these if they didn't have the cracked pepper. With that said, my hubby had a few friends over to play video games a few nights ago so I placed these in a bowl and gave them to the guys to snack on while they drank their beer. About 15 minutes later I was asked if I had more! geesh! I asked the guys what they liked about these potato stix and they said they liked the flavoring and that they were crunchy but not hard that would crack your teeth. They said they had a nice peppery & salty taste to them which for them...was the perfect blend of seasoning. I told the guys that these were all-natural and gluten-free and they were totally surprised because they thought that all-natural snack foods would taste bland. With this particular snack...that is definitely not the case!

Overall Impression: Personally, I didn't care for these but if you read above...you will see that hubby and his 2 friends totally chowed down on these potato stix in a matter of minutes! They liked them so much that they asked me for more! I personally give them a thumbs down...but the guys give them a thumbs up! So there you have it...a mixed review. Please keep in mind that everyone has different taste buds...just because I didn't care for them, doesn't mean you won't and just because the guy's loved them...doesn't mean you will. That is what makes us all unique individuals.

I would like to thank the Bodacious Snack Foods Company for sending me a variety of snacks to try out with my family. We have been enjoying our taste testing of the products you sent to us to review.
