Meow Mix
Mega Monster Munch
// article by Meow

For when you have a Monster case of the Munchies...

If there was a treat I could not stop craving from my childhood, it was the Pickled Onion Mega Monster Munch. Naturally, I had to bring some in with my importing of treats, but they also came with two other flavors: Roast Beef and Flamin' Hot. These salt corny puffs are all in the shape of four-fingered monster hands, but how are the individual flavors?

Flavor 1: Pickled Onion
Starting on a high note, pickled onion has a nice oniony taste to it, but it is very pungent with its sour aroma, which can put some people off. However, sour is one of my favorite flavors in foods, so it's heavenly to me. The taste of the sour and acidic pickling taste is great, and this still remains as my top snack of my youth. Just don't open it around people who whine about smells too much. Super thumbs up.

Flavor 2: Flamin' Hot
For those who are thinking of Cheetos, these are not that kind of Flamin' Hot. The taste is something like Cajun Ketchup. Not my favorite flavor, but is still different enough. Has a slight burn to them, but it shouldn't be anything anyone with any sort of constitution can't handle. Half a thumb up.

Flavor 3: Roast Beef
Aw yeah, another flavor of uncommon origins! However, this is sadly the weakest of the Monster Munch crew here, not really tasting of beef at all. It's savory for sure, but it's closer to worcestershire sauce than beef. Half a thumbs down.

A defining moment of my childhood was crossing the English countryside, and my grandmother or aunt buying me a large bag of Pickled Onion Monster Munch to eat on the road. Cracking the bag open, the car was immediately flooded with the strong sour aroma of the beauties, and my parents swore to never again get me the stuff. So many years ago, and now that I'm an adult I can get as much as I like! Mwahahaha!
