THE DAY IN REVIEWS – 1/7/2011

Here are a few product review posted today from other blogs we follow.

It sounds like the person who named the Kickbutt Amped Energy Ballz has extreme adjective Tourette’s syndrome. (via Caffeine-A-Holic)

Stride upgraded their spearmint gum to version 2.0. But what if it’s buggy or the flavor drains too quickly, can I downgrade to version 1.0? (via Gum Alert)

For years I’ve wondered what the Makara in Cinnabon’s Makara Cinnamon meant. After seeing all the products they’ve been in and reading about them being an ingredient in this candy, I think it might mean “whore.” (via Candyblog)

It sounds like the person who named the Quorn Meatless and Soy-Free Turky Burger has unappetizing adjective Tourette’s syndrome. (via Freezer Burns)

  1. I can’t find any information on Makara Cinnamon, either, which leads me to believe they probably made it up.

    Jokes aside, though, what we know as cinnamon is actually cassia, a relative of Ceylon/Sri Lankan Cinnamon (aka “true cinnamon”). Many countries actually ban cassia being called cinnamon, and it can be toxic if consumed in large quantities (thanks, Wikipedia!)

    Second to Ceylon is Korintje/Indonesian cinnamon, which is my cinnamon of choice – I get it from Penzeys. “Makara Cinnamon” comes from Indonesia as well, so it is possible it is Korintje, or something similar.
