Default interesting products I've sampled at the office

I don't work in food marketing/sales, but I do share an office with an agency, and a lot of sample products come by.

Someone brought these "Mia dolci" chocolate vanilla cookie cracker things to work and they are great. Like Graham crackers and Teddy grahams had a baby

There are a lot of beet products that show up, different kinds of veggie chips.

A lot of companies are evidently trying to perfect flax chips, but from what I've tasted they've got a ways to go

Someone has developed a wrap made from tomatoes. It was surprisingly clingy, form fitting in a way tortillas aren't.

For some reason, a bunch of Polish? Czech? Christmas themed drink mixes showed up a few months ago. They didn't go well with coffee...

I feel flax chips would come out in close to the same general shape that they went in.

My brain went "huh, eating linen's new to me" before it twigged to them using flax seeds instead of the grown plant.

Someone brought in some shelf stable hummus. The kindest description was "blech"

"coconut pudding" and "almond pudding". The texture is very smooth, so smooth it basically slips off of your tongue. Not great... Well, the chocolate/coconut flavor. Maybe the almond has more body?
