THE WEEK IN REVIEWS – 8/27/2010

Written by | August 27, 2010

Topics: M&M's, McDonald's, Snacks

Yes, this was posted on a Friday. It’s just part of my master plan to make sure there’s nothing to read on the weekend, forcing you to go outside and enjoy your weekend. Come on, it’s summertime. Get a real tan. Get some color. Anyhoo, here are a few product reviews posted this week from other blogs we like.

McDonald’s is testing chicken flatbreads in selected areas. The next thing I want McDonald’s to test is what the hell Grimace is made out of. (via Grub Grade)

Do you miss Crispy M&M’s? I do. But, sadly, the only ways I can get them is to either fly to Germany or build a time machine to take me back to 1999 so that I pick some up and relive Y2K all over again. (via Exquisite Candy)

Are you being dragged going to the see the movie Eat Pray Love this weekend? Might I recommend not sneaking in caffeinated popcorn, because it will make it difficult for you to fall asleep while attempting to follow the storyline. (via Caffeine-A-Holic)

Sure, Halloween is two months away. But if you want to get started on the Halloween sweets eating festivities or want cavities a month or two earlier, you’ll be happy to know that Halloween Peeps are already showing up in stores. (via Rodzilla Reviews)

The new Twix Fino is a light candy bar being marketed towards professional women in the United Kingdom. It sounds like Twix is telling professional women in the UK that they’re fat. (via Jim’s Chocolate Mission)

    McDonalds- always with the bacon ranch something. Their testing facility is a behemoth- but they seem to be using the same four or five testers over and over again.

    I have seen the cripsy M&Ms stateside before. The coconut ones are my one of favorites.

  3. Jay says:

    I can find the crispy m&ms in convenience stores in Japan.

  4. Hapless Kiwi says:

    The crispy M&Ms are available here in NZ as well, pretty commonly. Not every grocery has them, but many do. In fact, we recently had a promotion regarding mint-flavoured crispy M&M’s, but I never found that version.

  5. Rob says:

    Grimace isn’t really made up of anything. he’s a “taste bud”.

    he started out as “evil grimace”, named to mimic the face that you’d make when he ruined the taste of your shakes and fries. when they dropped the “evil”, he just became a clumsy oaf…
