ORIGINAL BAR SNACKS: WHISKEY CARAMEL CORN AND CHEXSNAX

ORIGINAL BAR SNACKS: WHISKEY CARAMEL CORN AND CHEXSNAX Friday, October 12, 2012

Snacks. There’s probably nothing more American than Snacks.

Baseball? Jazz? Apple Pie? Mom?

Nope, nope, nope and…maybe.

We love snacks. We eat ’em before lunch, we eat ’em before bed, and when we’re determined to knock a few back, we eat ’em at the bar.

Now we could choose to make weekly runs to Costco and stock up on Bar Snack staples, like peanuts and pretzels (yawn), but we think that all of you Happy Hour tipplers out there’ll get a bigger kick out of crunching and munching on something…familiar, but that’s also made right here, in-house.

So, if you’re not yet ready for dinner, but want to nosh lightly on something while waiting for your date, let us point you to our two new Bar Snacks: Whiskey Caramel Corn and ChexSnax.

The Whiskey Caramel Corn is as it sounds: Bourbon-Caramel and Popped Corn. Not necessarily easy to make, but easy to eat, and super-yummy, too. Like Cracker Jacks for grown-ups.

And then there’s those ChexSnax, comprised or Corn Pops cereal, pretzels, pecans, peanuts and, of course, Chex. The ingredients of this slumber party favorite are then mingled together in melted butter and Worcestershire sauce, and seasoned with chili powder, pimenton, garlic and onion powders, celery salt and cayenne pepper, after which we cut this snack’s bold and zesty profile with something a little sweet—our melted housemade chocolate.

Eat ’em with restraint or eat ’em by the handful. Just eat ’em. Your red-white-and-blue DNA compels you to do so. We’re talking Snacks, after all.
