Eh, given the packaging, they’ve probably got some acceptable shelf life after that date, if you like graham crackers at all. And these say that they’re cinnamon grahams, which might make them less meh. But I’m not planning to make that many cracker-crumb crusts for things between now and the end of the year, so I’ll pass.
Me over here in the corner like “Graham crackers have nuts?! I felt the same way when I realized Gladys Knight was singing “Midnight Train to Georgia” instead of “Big black train to Georgia” or realizing The Commodores were singing “She’s a Brick House,” & not " She’s a freak…owwww.” So many of these moments lately. Sigh…
Of course “No nut”: “Reverend Graham and Dr. John Kellogg, proponents of a theory that denounced masturbation, created these foods in the belief that they could curb one’s desire to masturbate.” So don’t eat these before any kind of sex. Like taking salt peter.
@gita4meh@werehatrack So if you consider eggs and milk non-vegetarian, why not add the honey? Also, if your definition of vegetarian is any product from an animal, how do you differentiate that from vegan?
Me? I call milk and eggs vegetarian. (Unless these are fertilized eggs, which is highly unlikely, given the cost-- and no mention of fertilized eggs.)
So I just notice the first photo shows a box of 36, but the item quantity (also in the Amazon link) is a case of 192. So maybe we get a case of 6 boxes of 36? But no, that would be 216 packs! You can only add up to 192 if you get 5.33 boxes. Something is amiss
@werehatrack Well, the box shown says net wt 2.25lbs (which is right for 36 oz). So assuming a “case pack” was 6 boxes, then the net wt would add up to 13.5 lbs. And figure in the weight of the 6 inner boxes plus an outer cardboard case, I can see where it would be 17.4 lbs. In which case the mystery is that it says 192, and it would be 216 in that case (literally, in the case pack, I mean)
@pmarin@werehatrack the picture is of a package of 36, the description says a package of 192. The dimensions and the total weight of 17.4 pounds suggest it is indeed a single box of 192 individually wrapped ounces of graham crackers.
For each ounce of food, you get slightly more than 0.4 ounces of packaging.
The outer box can probably be recycled, while the individual bags probably can’t.
@hamjudo@werehatrack If true, the large case-pack of 192 (not individual 36-pack boxes) makes sense if these are in fact airline overstock items – same as the blessing that first sent stroopwafels our way! Or maybe school lunch programs now that funding has ended for those in many states.
The 36-pack box might just be for reference, and would be appropriate for let’s say a Costco or Sam’s club pack.
I almost clicked the MEH, but then I saw the dominos picture. Simply brilliant. Now, if it were just a little closer to Halloween, I may have even bought some. As it is, no click of any kind, but please know my appreciation for today’s final picture is heartfelt.
Maybe snacks should have lab rats like some of the wine offerings. I won on jerky and stroopwafels but got burned on Sriracha edamame, so now I’m shy. 192 packs is a lot if they suck (well, it’s a lot regardless), and giving out sucky things at Halloween can invoke the “trick” clause of the contract.
Was thinking of getting these for Halloween handout and consuming the leftovers. Then I saw this image of them. They just exude “drywall flavor” and hardtack texture. Not good if you’re expecting HoneyMaid quality… Pass.
My box arrived today in the rain, and… well, the tape holding the bottom of the box together had opened on one side, exposing the poor little graham pouches to the world outside their box prison.
Since I’m working from home I decided it was a wise idea to count these out. (Side note, there are a LOT of broken/crushed graham crackers in these pouches.) I guess the delivery driver will find and enjoy three bags of graham crackers in the truck tonight!
FWIW, these are great! I brought them to my mom’s nursing home as a treat for the hard-working staff on her floor. They loved the Love Corn, too! Keep selling airline snacks, Meh! They make great thank-yous!
