REVIEW: Pillsbury Limited Edition Marshmallow Cookies with Marshmallow Bits

What are Pillsbury Limited Edition Marshmallow Cookies with Marshmallow Bits? Stick with me here folks; these are (supposedly) marshmallow-flavored cookies with little hot cocoa packet-style marbits. How are they? They’re fine, but if you’re expecting BIG marshmallow flavor, I’ve got bad news. The cookies smelled like yellow cake mix in the oven, and I convinced myself they were going to taste like marshmallows. They ended up tasting like a sugar cookie, unfortunately. I had to convince mys...

REVIEW: Twix Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bars

What is the Twix Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar? Depending on how you choose to see it, these are either a new twixt (get it?) on the existing Twix ice cream bars or a meltable version of the Twix Triple Chocolate candy bar. The chocolate shell remains the same as the original ice cream bar, but the vanilla ice cream and cookie bits are now chocolate. The filling is not the chocolate caramel of the candy bar, but the same gooey caramel of the O.G. ice cream bar. How is it? I was a tiny bi...

REVIEW: Sprite Lymonade

Sprite Lymonade is the classic lemon and lime-flavored Sprite mixed with some lemonade. Okay, not exactly lemonade because the beverage itself isn’t an ingredient. It gets its elevated citrus flavor from, according to the bottle, clarified lemon juice from concentrate. I imagine Sprite Clarified Lemon Juice From Concentrate would’ve been a horrible product name. It has ONE PERCENT real juice. And, somewhere, Mtn Dew Amp Game Fuel is laughing because it’s made with five percent juice, which is s...

REVIEW: Haagen-Dazs Spirits Collection Ice Cream (U.S.)

Judging from the length of their corresponding aisles at the grocery store, it’s no secret that Americans love alcohol and ice cream. Despite this, mergers between the two seem rare with mainstream brands. Befitting of the most drunken-sounding ice cream brand, Haagen-Dazs has risen to fill this void of boozy frozen desserts with the release of its new Spirits Collection. Each pint features a different variety of popular liquor, paired alongside indulgent mix-ins, and Haagen-Dazs’ famously ric...

REVIEW: Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 Cups

Not content with occupying half an aisle with its 150 flavors (slightly exaggerated, obviously, but have you seen how many there are?), Duncan Hines expands its Perfect Size for 1 cake mix line to include other established brands and fun toppings. There are four flavors at the moment – Chocolate Chip Cake Mix with Chips Ahoy Cookie Pieces, Chocolate Cake Mix with Chocolate Candy Pieces, Cookies and Cream Cake Mix with Oreo Cookie Pieces, and S’mores Cake Mix with Honey Maid Graham Cracker Piece...

REVIEW: Starbucks Vanilla Almondmilk Frappuccino

What is the Starbucks Vanilla Almondmilk Frappuccino? Imagine a bottled Starbucks Frappuccino with, instead of reduced fat and skim milk, a liquid made from almonds that are treated as if someone is trying to extract top secret information from it. They’re drowned, chopped into tiny pieces, and then drowned again. Besides this vanilla flavor, there’s also a mocha version. How is it? Full disclosure: I drink almond milk. More specifically, organic Silk Almondmilk from Costco that comes in a...

REVIEW: Starbucks Frappuccino with a Splash of Cold Brew

What are Starbucks Frappuccino with Cold Brew? Bottled beverages that mostly contain brewed Starbucks coffee with a splash of Starbucks cold brew coffee, reduced fat milk, skim milk, and sugar. The line debuted with three flavors — Salted Dark Chocolate, Toasted White Chocolate, and Caramelized Vanilla Honey. The review below is for the first two. How are they? The good news is that they taste like bottled Starbucks Frappuccino, which is perfectly fine because I happen to like the line as a...

REVIEW: Monster Energy Ultra Paradise

What is Monster Energy Ultra Paradise? Monster Energy just released “Paradise” as the newest addition to its sugar-free Ultra line of energy drinks. According to the back of the can, Monster Ultra Paradise delivers “Pure, Crisp, Invigorating Island Flavors.” The question is, what exactly is an island flavor? How is it? I’m a frequent consumer of Monster Ultra, so I know the flavors can be difficult to place. Sure, Ultra Red kind of tastes like fruit punch, and Ultra Sunrise tastes vaguely ...

REVIEW: Heinz Mayomust and Mayocue Saucy Sauces

What are Heinz Mayomust and Mayocue Saucy Sauces? After the brilliant or infuriating (depending on who you ask) debut of Heinz’s Mayochup, the company has branched out to other mayonnaise condiment mashups with the launch of Mayomust and Mayocue. Following Mayochup’s lead, and as the back of the bottles tell me, these combine the delicious taste of yellow mustard (or classic BBQ) with mayonnaise and a special blend of spices. Full disclosure: I loved Mayochup. Everything about it tickled me ...

REVIEW: Lay’s Turn Up the Flavor Potato Chips

After the success of the regionally-inspired “Do Us a Flavor” chips, Lay’s is back with something new – chips inspired by genres of music. ARE Y’ALL READY TO TURN UP THE FLAVOR?! I’ll take that tepid response as a “yes.” Like snack preference, musical taste is subjective, but I’m gonna try to compare each new chip flavor to a song from the genre they’re inspired by. Tonight’s opening act is Classic Beer Cheese. I guess Lay’s took the classic “rock” inspiration literally by making these “hard as...

REVIEW: Starbucks Cloud Macchiato

What are the Starbucks Cloud Macchiatos? Starbucks’ new Cloud Macchiato is a new fancy take on an O.G., the macchiato, inspired by a classic Spanish summer drink (leche merengada or meringue milk). To achieve the frothy Instagram-worthy clouds, Starbucks’ R&D created a new “cloud powder” out of egg whites. In my mind, they just added egg whites to their existing cold foam offering, but maybe I’m oversimplifying it. There are two new flavors: the Caramel Cloud (whipped cloud cold foam, vanilla...

REVIEW: Red Bull Pear Edition

What is Red Bull Pear Edition? A sugarfree Red Bull flavor that I wish wasn’t sugarless. How is it? It smells wonderful. It has a delicious, sweet pear scent that makes me imagine I’m in a giant pear hanging out with talking invertebrates. Oh, wait. My imagination is plagiarizing James and the Giant Peach. But, before taking I sip, I know its flavor will not be taking my taste buds sledding down the side of a sweet pear. The letters in the blue stripe at the top of the can tell me what my ...

REVIEW: Sonic Brunch Burger

For quite a while now, one of my favorite burger toppings has been that of a fried egg, usually sunny-side up, always sitting on top of the sizzling meat and cool cheese, the sticky ovum running down your face and hands with every sensual bite. It’s usually worth the extra dollar charge to the bill. It’s a singular treat of mostly gourmet burger spots. Almost none of the bigger fast food joints around town have even attempted an egg-drenched burger, except Jack in the Box. But now Sonic adds it...

REVIEW: Red Bull Peach Edition

What is Red Bull Peach Edition? A new flavor of Red Bull that seems to be on shelves earlier than it should be since peaches and nectarines are considered summer fruits and its press release came out in February. How is it? It tastes as if Red Bull was able to pick at the peak of their ripeness the freshest Trolli or Haribo peach gummies it could find. Seriously, the flavor and smell of this cloudy white beverage are extremely similar to those fruit-flavored gummies, which I love. So I hear...

REVIEW: Reese’s Thins Peanut Butter Cups

What are Reese’s Thins? New Reese’s Thins are not Hershey’s attempt at a “diet” food. I was actually dumb enough to think that may have been the case for a second. A smarter person would have realized that these are simply thinner peanut butter cups. How are they? I’d find it a bit disingenuous to whine about any Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. They’re arguably the single greatest piece of candy on Earth, so you’d probably roll your eyes if I went on a long diatribe about how baffled I am by Re...

What is Kellogg’s Limited Edition Caticorn Cereal? While the Kellogg’s R&D department has been busy cranking out new cereals like Taylor Swift churns out sappy love songs, its marketing team has recently recruited a cousin of the former internet sensation Nyan Cat to join its cast of colorful and kid-friendly characters. Since I bet a bunch of you are about to do this anyway, I’ll give you a moment to open up a video of the famous feline earworm in another tab. This is named for the adorable...

REVIEW: Dove Promises White Chocolate Carrot Cake

What is Dove Promises White Chocolate Carrot Cake? It’s Dove’s smooth white chocolate with artificial carrot cake flavoring and graham flavored crisps. The first thing that pops into my mind when it comes to “crisps” is rice cereal. However, in the ingredients list they’re not labeled as “crisps.” Instead, they’re listed as “cookie pieces,” which sounds exactly 44 times more appealing than “crisps,” and it’s what should’ve been printed on the front of the packaging. How is it? I can tell yo...

REVIEW: Lay’s Wavy Salt & Pepper Potato Chips

What are Lay’s Wavy Salt & Pepper Potato Chips? The standard restaurant table space takers, salt and pepper, have been on Lay’s original and Kettle Cooked chips, but this is the first time they’ve been on Lay’s Wavy chips. Okay, chip nerds about to correct me, the first time on Lay’s Wavy in the U.S. How are they? I was expecting these to be peppery, but their saltiness was surprising. In my mind, I thought the level would be the usual amount on chips, but they taste extra salty. I’m not ta...

REVIEW: Taco Bell Steak Rattlesnake Fries and Burrito

Like an angry sirocco tearing through the cactus-strewn desert of Death Valley, Taco Bell has inevitably whipped up a whole nest of spicy snakes into a flavorful frenzy with both the figurative and literal arrival of what is now more popularly known as the Steak Rattlesnake Fries and the Steak Rattlesnake Fries Burrito.

What is Toy Story 4 Carnival Churro Cravings Ice Cream? One of two new flavors (Chocolate Peanut Butter Midway Mash-Up is the other) released by Edy’s/Dreyer’s in advance of Toy Story 4, which presumably includes a plot featuring a carnival with a midway and a couple of oh-so-cute stuffed animal prizes featured on the package. According to Wikipedia, my sole source of sometimes accurate information, the two new characters are Ducky and Bunny, voiced by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. (Wi...

REVIEW: Snack Pack Unicorn Magic Pudding

What is Snack Pack Unicorn Magic Pudding? It’s the latest salvo in the never-ending war between Snack Pack and Jello for pudding supremacy. It came out roughly the same time as Jello’s Unicorn Slime. According to the packaging, it tastes like joy and rainbow sparkles and is made with fairy dust and princess kisses. How is it? I’ve never tasted joy or rainbow sparkles, but I have tasted misery from the salty tears of a crying face and rainbow sprinkles from the cupcake I stole from the perso...

REVIEW: Orange Vanilla Coca-Cola

What is Orange Vanilla Coca-Cola? As the first new flavor of Classic Coca-Cola to be released stateside in over ten years, Orange Vanilla Coke sets itself apart by combining smooth vanilla and bright orange flavors with the cola’s nostalgic original blend. How is it? Let me set the record straight here: no flavor of Coca-Cola is terrible. The worst variation of Coke is still arguably better than anything Pepsi has ever put out. Even so, I can’t say this variation is unforgettable in the sa...

REVIEW: TruMoo After Dark Mexican Style Chocolate Milk

What is TruMoo After Dark Mexican Style Chocolate Milk? It’s part of TruMoo’s decadent line of flavored milk that has a name that I only say using a seductive whisper. The line also includes Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel and Vanilla & Chai Spice. This spicy flavor is dark chocolate milk with notes of cinnamon and a kick of chili pepper. The dairy base is whole milk, and it’s sweetened with real cane sugar. How is it? The chocolate and cinnamon in the ultra-pasteurized milk help create a del...
