Sesame Seed Nut Crunch is the best; the sesame flavor comes through with a purity and intensity that is surprising. Although there’s a sugary brittle coating, the seeds drive the flavor.
Cashew Nut Crunch is less interesting—the nut’s mild flavor is hidden beneath the sweet, honey-boosted taste of the brittle. The pecan variety fares better: After the same overwhelming brittle attack, the natural rolling, earthy, smoked nuttiness of the pecans battles back and asserts itself.
Almond Nut Crunch is dominated by a pleasant, lightly burnt caramel flavor. And Macadamia & Coconut Nut Crunch tastes like an effortless success, the clean, light macadamia flavor dominating each bite, with a natural coconut chaser bringing up the back half of the experience, a perfect complement to the sweet, nutty opener.
If you’re a brittle fan who’s seen and eaten the usual suspects, Mama’s Goodies are a swell way to take things to the next level.
