PEPPERIDGE FARM CHEESEBURGER GOLDFISH CRACKERS
Now, Goldfish Crackers aren’t something that we really eat a lot of in the UK but in America they are huge (if you do want to eat them in the UK you can find them under the name Finz apparantly) – so much so that sometimes new flavours are released! I cannot find a definitive date as to when this unusual new flavour or cracker was released however blogs and sites that I have read have all been around 2015 so I guess that is when they became available on the market.
Now, if you are unfamiliar as to what a Goldfish cracker is, then lets start with that to begin with – they are fish shaped crackers that usually taste of cheese and are created by a division of the Campbell Soup Company. They have been released in a variety of flavour over the years and Cheeseburger just happens to be one of them.
The Cheeseburger Goldfish come in three different coloured fish in a pack that are all different parts of a Cheeseburger – the yellow fish (cheese), the red fish (ketchup) and the brown fish (the actually burger), combine them altogether and in one mouthful they are meant to taste like you are actually eating a real Cheeseburger. A packet of these Cheeseburger Goldfish were $1.98 for 178g.
There have been reviews by a variety of sites that state that the crackers had a burger like smell to them when you initially open the packet. One blogger did state though that there was a huge difference in the amount of burger and ketchup flavoured crackers and that they were predominantly cheese. The question on every bodies lips though is how did they taste? John was on the case to find out in June 2015.
