Pecan Sandies, TBS and Popsicle Sticks

I think I’ve been giving Pecan Sandies undue credit.

See, I’ve always thought of Pecan Sandies as being delicously crumbly little bits of heavenly goodness… but a recent experience has left me questioning whether my tastebuds have been wearing blindfolds for the past two decades, or whether the good little elves at Keebler have changed up their recipe. (Do skyrocketing sugar prices exist in elf world, too?)

It started the other day when I took my daily trip to the office snack machine. I saw the bag of snack-sized Pecan Sandies sitting there and couldn’t resist. (Note: Whenever I see snack-sized versions of my favorite goodies, I just have to have them. It’s kind of like finding out TBS is airing your favorite movie; it doesn’t matter that there will be commercials, or that some parts will be edited out, or that you have the DVD right there next to the TV… you just have to watch it.)

I’m a sucker for bite-sized anything.

Anyway, I was excited to see a smaller version of Pecan Sandies and felt compelled to eat them right away.

I was about two cookies in when it dawned on me that these weren’t the deliciously crumbly cookies I’d remembered. They were dry in a bad way and disturbingly crunchy.

One of the Keebler elves is seriously dropping the ball... and I think I know who it is.

As for the flavor… You know when you get to the end of an ice cream bar and you’re left with the stick but you can’t get off the couch to throw it out just yet (because you’re watching your favorite movie on TBS) so you end up chewing on it for awhile? You know that “nothingness” flavor? I’m sorry to say it, but that’s what Pecan Sandies taste like. Definitely not worth the calories.

Look… maybe I had a bad bag or maybe Pecan Sandies just aren’t meant to be enjoyed in bite-sized doses, but I’ve got my eye on you, Fast Eddie.
