Review: Kraft - Jet-Puffed Bites

Kraft Jet-Puffed Bites feature bite-sized marshmallows in various flavors with various chocolaty coatings. They come in three varieties: Coconut, Birthday Cake, and S'mores.

A 4-oz bag carries a suggested price of $3.99 but I received these courtesy of Jet-Puffed.

Coconut Jet-Puffed Bites feature coconut-flavored marshmallows with dark chocolaty coating, topped with toasted coconut. These came with a mild, slightly-artificial (like coconut but not quite coconut) coconut flavor and a sweet dark chocolate quality. The toasted coconut flecks embedded into the top of each bite were quite small and didn't contribute much in taste or texture. The marshmallow inside was puffy and squishy soft.

Birthday Cake Jet-Puffed Bites consist of buttery vanilla cake-flavored marshmallows with a white chocolaty coating, topped with rainbow sprinkles. I'm not so sure I picked up any buttery notes but these brought to mind Mother's brand Circus Animal Cookies if you replaced the cookie portion with a marshmallow. They were creamy and squishy with a pleasant vanilla flavor and a nice amount of crunch from the sprinkles.

S'mores Jet-Puffed Bites are vanilla-flavored marshmallows with a milk chocolaty coating, topped with graham cracker crumbs. These offered a very enjoyable rendition of s'mores in one mess-free bite. However, I did find myself wishing for more of a graham cracker crunch to feel more s'mores like. Maybe a little graham cracker "platform" on the bottom would do it? 

Of the three Jet-Puffed Bites, the S'mores variety was my favorite despite the slight underrepresentation of graham crackers in the combo as the Birthday Cake variety was a little too sweet and the Coconut flavor wasn't quite right for me. I'd note that the milk chocolaty and dark chocolaty coatings hit a nice chocolate flavor but lacked the richness of actual chocolate.
