THE WEEK IN REVIEWS – 7/18/2009

Here are a few product reviews posted this week from other blogs we like.

I don’t think I’ll be drinking the Odwalla 100% Pure Carrot Juice any time soon. Not because I don’t like carrots, but because I’m afraid Jack LaLanne will kick my ass for not using a Juice Tiger. (via The Skinny Plate)

SPAM vs. TREET? Both straight out of the can? There are no winners and only losers in that match. (via Second Rate Snacks)

I really do hate those Domino’s American Legends pizza commercials that involve stereotypes of the people who represent the areas the pizzas were influenced from, like the California Pacific Veggie Pizza and the Philly Cheese Steak Pizza. Yes, there’s the Honolulu Hawaiian pizza, but I don’t think you’ll ever see a commercial with Hawaii stereotypes. Because here’s a little secret about Hawaiian pizzas with pineapple and ham…people in Hawaii don’t eat them. (via Would I Buy It Again)

Let me get this straight. Raisinets that don’t have any raisins, but have cranberries instead is called Cranberry Raisinets? Shouldn’t they have called it Craisinets? Or maybe they couldn’t call it that because someone else already trademarked the name. I wonder if Prunets, Raspinets or Strawbinets have been trademarked? (via Candy Addict)

With all the sexual synonyms in its name, I think Long John Silver’s Baja Fish Taco should replace the word “fuck” when talking about intercourse in inappropriate situations, like in front of children. Let’s make this happen, people. Let’s start Long John Silver’s Baja Fish Taco-ing. (via We Rate Stuff)

  1. Haha wow gross (Long John Silver’s Fish Tacos innuendo). Serious question though: do people in Hawaii eat fish tacos? I’ve found they’re quite popular on the West Coast yet relatively unknown and frowned up on on the East Coast. When people in NY hear of them they say “uhg that’s so gross, a taco with fish?!” and then they go about their day with their Taco Bell ground meat taco kits (mainly in the suburbs, normal Mexican food is slowly but surely infiltrating all parts of America).

  2. You know, I’ve never eaten fish tacos but I really like the idea of them.

    And I can’t believe you would say spam is a loser, Marvo. All of Hawaii is ashamed of you now. They’ll be outside with flaming torches soon.

    PS. Tried the Arby’s bbq bacon cheddar roastburger today. It sucked, don’t get it. GG did a review but they weren’t harsh enough.

    Spam is surprisingly good, and I’m white as hell.”

    So ummm yeah, Spam sucks and I’m black as hell…(wtf are you talking about, does race have something to do with eating Spam?)

  4. Uhm, I like spam out of the can. With hot sauce. I eat it straight out of the can. Just like corned beef in a can.

  5. @Lane O: Yes, we still do. There’s one next to Zippy’s on Kapahulu.

    @WIBIA: That line made me cringe.

    @Ken: I’m not hating on SPAM. I’m hating on SPAM that eaten straight out of the can. I enjoy fried SPAM. I like SPAM enough that I spell it all in capital letters, like how it is on the can.

    @brad: SPAM is good and I’m Asian as hell.

    @orb205: We don’t have a lot of Mexican restaurants here (Taco Bell doesn’t count), but we have a few place that sell fish tacos. I’ve had a few, but I don’t think they’re extremely popular.

    @Natalie: Although I didn’t say this above, I do enjoy SPAM, but I will not eat it straight out of the can. Sam I am. Also, I reviewed the original Roastburger and didn’t care for it.

    @yawnie: We should go to Wahoo sometime.

    @Zac Prticher: We eat what everyone else eats — fast food.

    @Fran: Ewww.

    @nitrogirl: They make me want to punch my TV.
