THE WEEK IN REVIEWS – 8/8/2009

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

I guess I missed the memo. Apparently, it’s Taco Bell Volcano Nachos Review Week. (via We Rate Stuff, Everyview and Grub Grade)

My bucket list contains another list of fast food places I want to try, like Sonic, Five Guys and Chick-fil-A. The list is on the bottom of my bucket list because the food at most of these places could make me kick the bucket. (via Foodette Reviews)

I used to have a thing for mechanical pencils while in high school and had over 50 of them by the time I graduated. I even traded them with other mechanical pencil geeks in school. Yes, I didn’t have a girlfriend during high school. (via Dave’s Mechanical Pencils)

With a name like Cola Shock, I was expecting this to be an energy drink, but it’s alcohol. I guess that’s the shock. (via Japanese Snack Reviews)

Why do Frosted Mini Wheats remind me of bales of hay covered with cocaine? (via The X Section)

  1. Damn it, Marvo, I don’t have $900 to fly back to Georgia to go to Chick-fil-A and after reading that review I really, really want to.

  2. I’ve been reading a lot about Chick-fil-A and I wish someone would bring it over here so I can have some. How is it that something so great doesn’t spread yet Starbucks (which I like, but it’s too damn expensive) is everywhere.

  3. Taco Bell’s been spending millions to give everyone the memo on Volcano nachos via a bombardment of television commercials.

  4. 50 mechanical pencils?! Okay, I know about 99% of them were purchased at the Sanrio section of Shirokiya and never used, lest the designs be worn out by your grubby fingers. Who was your favorite character, flash in the pan Keroppi or the old classic Hello Kitty? Or were you a Morning Glory kind of boy?

  5. Yes good sir, Chick-Fil-A should be on your list. I think it’s marginally healthier than most fast food. If their chicken is processed at all, they do a great job of hiding it and everything is fried in peanut oil- not the healthiest of oils, but quality and it tastes fantastic. Anywhos, thanks for the great site. Me and the lady are loyal readers.

  6. Im going to indianapolis this week and im going to try chick-a-fil. Five guys is good. They tend to give you a lot of fries.

  7. I had the fortune/misfortune of sampling something sort of like Cola Shock once, in a train station in Germany. I liked it–but probably because it reminded me of middle school, when I used to dip into my parents’ antifreeze.

  8. @Natalie: Hitchhike?

    @Orchid64: I say the same thing about White Castle.

    @Ken: I wish I could die eating Chick-fil-A right now. Instead I’m stuck with McDonald’s, Burger King and Jack in the Box.

    @EpicPhallus: But they have thousands of drink options.

    @Jay: I avoid all Taco Bell commercials because I’m afraid I’m going to have to hear that stupid Roosevelts song.

    @Lola: I am jealous. I feel like I have to make you jealous…Um…We have warm weather throughout the year and we’re in a hurricane zone.

    @Molly: No Sanrio pencils because they all sucked and smelled like an 8 year old girl’s backpack.

    @Pjoe: Thanks to you and your lady for being loyal readers.

    @Gigi: You may.

    @Shannon: I hope Five Guys comes out with frozen versions of their food, like White Castle, so I can get an unsatisfying version of their food that will make me yearn for the real stuff even more.

    @Let’s: Mmm…antifreeze.
