Having a child under the age of 10, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish are a staple in my house. We have tried several different kinds, from Original Cheddar to Pretzel to various Flavor Blasted flavors. These packages are usually $2.99 each, but a recent 3 for $5 sale prompted me to stock up.
I noticed there were some new bags on the Pepperidge Farm shelf next to the plain cheese kind I had grown up on. In addition to Saltine, there was a whole new line of Goldfish called Grahams. These included chocolate, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, and smore’s. In addition to the Original Cheddar and a bag of Goldfish Colors, I decided to try the Cinnamon Grahams. I’m a huge Teddy Grahams fan, and wondered how these new fish would fare against the bears.
The first thing I noticed was that the Grahams bags look smaller than the savory flavors, but a quick package check proved me wrong – they are both 6.6 ounces. I also saw that the Grahams are made with whole grain; a benefit the other varieties seem to lack.
I opened the bag as soon as I got home and was pleasantly surprised. They were crunchy, sweet, and very cinnamon-y. They also seemed to be addictive because even though the serving size is a generous 50 pieces, I easily ate twice that. And even though I have always liked the bears, they have a weird shiny glaze on them, which the fish was happily missing.
These yummy grahams have 140 calories per serving, 5 grams of fat, 9 grams of sugar, and 1 gram each of dietary fiber and protein. There aren’t any real vitamin perks, but they have no trans fat and minimal cholesterol (5mg). All in all, I’d have to say that I don’t think I’ll ever eat Teddy Grahams again. Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Goldfish Grahams are welcome in my pond anytime.
