Reddit Is Raving Over Costco's Honey Mustard Snack Mix

People love honey mustard — it is a fact! In a Mashed survey that looked at customers' favorite sauces at McDonald's, honey mustard blew away the competition with about 27% of votes split among five sauces. In a similar survey for KFC sauces, honey mustard won again, although ranch seemed to put up a good fight. Mashed even conducted a survey to determine the best type of mustard, and fans overwhelmingly chose honey mustard as their favorite.

Furthermore, it is not just average consumers who love honey mustard. As Mashed reported, celebrities like Chrissy Teigen are fans — she teamed up with the Sir Kensington's condiment company to create a honey mustard sauce of her own, labeled Honey Mustard Fry Sauce. When asked what her secret ingredient is in BLTs, famed chef and "Top Chef" host Padma Lakshmi called honey mustard her secret weapon (per Mashed). She drizzles it on bacon strips while cooking them to give them an additional tangy quality. 

For these reasons, it is no surprise that Costco's latest popular item is an appropriately flavored honey mustard snack mix.

A tangy, savory delight

Recently, a Reddit discussion broke out in excitement over Costco's honey mustard snack mix, a combination bag of flavored pretzel pieces, almond poppers, sesame sticks, almond splits, and chickpeas. They are all mixed together with a tangy, savory honey mustard flavor. A Redditor posed a question to the forum, asking, "Why did you guys not tell me about Honey Mustard Snack Mix?!" They called it, "My new favorite thing at Costco."

Other Redditors chimed in, with one noting that the snack mix is a comeback item. They made a point to say how much they "loved this stuff and was bummed when it went away" the first time around. Another Redditor called them "addicting." Other reviewers, like the Costcuisine, mimicked the feeling and claimed they were "addictive. The blogger explained their transition from being unsure to when they "really liked it" — after they took another bite, they decided "this was dangerously delicious" and became afraid of eating the whole bag. It seems like Costco may have to keep these on its roster for a while.
