Kraft Jet-Puffed Candy Corn Marshmallows

If Archer Farms can make a pumpkin spice hot cocoa mix, I’m sure they can make a candy corn hot cocoa I can dump a bunch of these Jet-Puffed Candy Corn Marshmallows into. (Spotted by Claire G at Wegmans.)

Is the word “spice” really necessary? Chip Review tried the Apple Crumble Pie flavor. (Spotted by Sylvia at Ralphs.)

Larabar Renola

Does anyone else want to blow an alphorn and then yell RE-NO-LA? (Spotted by Nick at ShopRite.)

I want to purchase a food truck, install a bunch of microwaves in it, and then sell these evol. Street Tacos from it. I would call the food truck, Lazy Tacos. (Spotted by Michelle at Target.)

  1. I’ve noticed that some pumpkin-related products put “spice” in their names to indicate that the flavor is a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, etc, and there is no actual pumpkin involved. Without seeing the ingredients list, I’ll just assume that’s the case here.

  2. I’ve had the Renola, surprising very good, not granola-like that I expect, more nutty.
    BTW, I can’t understand how anyone likes candy corn..almost as bad as Circus Peanuts.

    1. I dunno, I’d take Circus Peanuts over candy corn, but it’s pretty close. I do like the circus peanut-esque Easter candy bunnies (in pretty pastel colors)

  3. I tried the evol Korean beef & kimchi street tacos. I’ve had worse frozen meals, but these were still pretty bad. I’ve never had fancy dog food (or any dog food for that matter), but I’m assuming this is what it tastes like. That’s better than some Lean Cuisines and Smart Ones out there, but I’d rather my food be fit for human consumption.

    1. I’m amazed you were even able to taste them. I just cooked some, and what came out of my microwave was a nasty grey blob that looked nothing like the appetizing tacos pictured on the front. The smell was nauseating, and I had to throw mine in the trash and find something else to eat. I bought four of their products, and all four were awful.

  4. Renola (I tried the cinnamon nut) is quite delicious. Fair warning though it’s trailmix, not granola. There are no grains involved, it’s a mixture of nuts/seeds and dried fruit which last time I checked is called trail mix not “re-invented granola.”
