Snack Time - New Mikesell's Flavors and Giveaways!

Dayton's own Mikesell's just added two new flavors to their Kettle Cooked line, Sour Cream & Onionand Bold Jamaican Jerk. Now, the sour cream and onion are delicious, but not earth shattering.  The Jerk, however, are indeed, BOLD.  Spicy as shit, really.  Mr. FvF would basically eat pure fire, and usually mocks me when I say a food item is hot or spicy, but even he could admit these had a decent kick.  Until February, the Kettle Cooked line was limited to original, reduced fat, Groovy and Barbecue.  If I remember correctly, they had discontinued their Sour Cream & Onion flavor a few years ago, so I'm sure its second coming as a Kettle chip will be welcomed with open arms. 

I'm not a huge potato chip fan, anyway, so I moved right onto the Cinnamon Toast Puffcorns.  Guess what, eaters?  You can't even get these yet.  Well, maybe you can because technically they came out on Friday.  But good luck finding them!  Come on, just let me feel special that I got something before the rest of the free market.  The important part here is that they're incredible.  Like, hide them from your toddler or eat them off of a floor that hasn't been freshly cleaned if you drop a few clean.  The cinnamon is the dominant flavor, but they still have the butteriness of the original Puffcorns, which gives the sugar and spice a really nice balance.

Want some free snacks?  Better yet, want some free snacks (I'm talking a lot of free snacks) and tickets to the Cincinnati Zoo?  Tell me about your favorite Mikesell's snack - chips, pretzels, puffcorns, curls, whatever.  I'll choose the winner at random on Friday March 8, so entries will be accepted until that day at 12noon Eastern time.  The prize will ship directly to the winner from the company, so Mikesell's lovers in any market are encouraged to apply.

I've always had a weakness for their Green Onion chips especially, but there's a strong fondness for the cheddar puffcorns too! I always wish someone would gift me the chocolate covered chips around the holidays too, but I never get so lucky.

Those cinnamon toast puffcorns sound amazing. Gonna keep an eye out for those. I've had a similar brand's product in caramel and liked them but they lacked a certain something, but cinnamon sounds awesome.

My favorite are the cheese puffcorns - from my young popcorn forbidden years with braces!

I love to snack on crunchy salty goodness and I love to support local businesses. With that being said—Mikesell’s stole my heart years ago when I moved to Dayton from the Pacific NW. I am a “chipper” and I thrive trying out new flavors. I really want to try the new Jamaican Jerk kettle chips! The reviews sound like they have a “kick” without the “kick you in the face” heat. My hubby loves the Good’n Hot. I found a ginormous half empty bag in his truck the other day. He confessed that he usually buys a bag or two a week and leaves them at work. I felt betrayed! Why wouldn’t he share? Anyhow he was busted and I couldn’t wait to eat the rest of the bag. My taste buds felt explosions of heat with each piggy sized mouthful. When the pocket book is low but the appetite is high I buy a “five dollah” foot long and stop at Speedway on the way home and buy a few bags of Mikesell’s. I love to compliment eating fresh with a bag of the Salt n’Pepper and Sour cream. Oh have you tried the chocolate coverage Mikesell’s from Esther Price? They are sweet and salty and knock out my pregnancy cravings in delight!- Kristy M.

I completely forgot to choose our winner Friday, but it's Kristy M! Little FvF chose the winner by painstakingly letting his hand smear all over the screen until it stayed on her entry the longest.
check your inbox for an email from me, Kristy!
