THE DAY IN REVIEWS – 1/12/2011

Wodka. Vodka.

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

I took a semester of Russian in college. Okay, part of a semester. Stopped going after my throat got sore from trying to pronounce words, the cute girl in the class dropped out and I learned drinking vodka was not part of the curriculum. All I can say in Russian is “Nice to meet you. My name is Marvo.” So I have no idea what’s printed on this Russian candy. (via Obsessive Sweets)

These Chinese Cheetos probably weren’t produced in the United States, which is too bad because sending them snacks that could make them fat would partially make up for the Chinese sending us toys with lead paint. (via Foodstuff Finds)

The ability Taco Bell has with making multiple menu items with seasoned ground beef is the same ability Subway has with sliced turkey. (via Brand Eating)

Freeze-dried blueberry cheesecake? Tang must be so proud. (via Probably Edible)

Rockstar’s latest energy drink has 250 milligram of caffeine in a 12 ounce can, which will provide some serious kick. But if you want a more serious kick, 250 milligrams of cocaine will do it, but will cost you about thirty dollars more. (via Energy Fiend)

  1. Well neato. Learning Russian and freezing my behind off in Minsk has finally come in handy. I’d forgotten just how creepy and weird Russian food is…the wrappers can be downright nightmare inducing. Kinda like the Porky Cheetos there. Mmm…pigmeat and cheez crunchies…I’m in a cold sweat just thinking about them.

        1. Oh yes…a Russian market is an absolute horror house. Full of creepy dolls, rabid bears, carousel horses, and former Soviet leaders glaring down at you with malice in their eyes. You can almost FEEL the cold dead doll fingers on your neck. Plus even the candy stores smell like days-old cabbage and sausage for some reason.

          I lost a lot of weight there. And not just from shivering in the dead cold of JUNE.

          Glad I could translate, though.
