It's hard to stop eating them once you start, but I don't ever want to see those fucking things again. At least three boxes came home with my family.

Imagine, if you will, a cracker with a distinctive shape and a coating of flavored powder that left a greasy, salty residue on your fingers.

True story.

One of my friends had carried a box of Jingos onto the concert field and had handed it to another friend for a minute. When he tried to hand it back to her...she refused to take 'em and ran away from us into the crowd! :lol:

I caught one whiff of that "flavor powder of death" and understood immediately why she wouldn't take the box back. :eek:

I know Pepperidge Farm is a local company, but what made them think a crunchy granola fest was a good place for the Flavor Powder of Death product launch?

Those damn things were EVERYWHERE!! Karen handed me a couple on Thursday night, and they immediately sucked every milliliter of moisture out of my entire head. I had to run in the tent with my head husk for water. It was traumatic.

Having said that, I did enjoy some Parmesan garlic ones on Saturday. Could have been delirium by that point though.

They may have failed there, but I have to admit to loving the constant supply of brownies and milanos. :drool:


True, VIP and staff catering were well-stocked with cookies. :cheesy:

Six … SIX boxes of Jingos! came home with us. Do they breed?

ahahahahha,
I had a jingos standoff with someone where they were with one finger pinning the box against my chest waiting for me to hold it.. I eventually lost do to my state of mind mixing with the overwhelming feet and vomit funk smell. I just needed to get away from it :)

I also figure the people driving the carts around filled with jingos were just trying to drive away from the smell

I never heard of these til Vibes and I haven't tasted them...but considering the number of boxes on the ground strewn throughout Boardie Camping they're either awesome or they're so bad that people just needed to get away from them...

or it was the same box that wooks would pick up taste one and throw the box down in a different area for another wook to give 'em a try.

I also bounced into the Vip tent and tried a few.

I felt like a shrunken apple head after as they turned into a thick paste in my mouth.

On the bright side i think they kept everything from coming out to mushy the next day in the Vip bathroom. :lol:


Now those peperige farm cookies with one side chocolate and some nuts on them..................those we should have by the case next year.
