What is Rajili sauce? I don’t know, but it won’t be the new sriracha. And if I’m wrong, I’ll drink a bottle of Rajili sauce. (Spotted by Adam at Target.)

  1. Zatarian thingies in pizza roll form? That, I have to try.

    I got their frozen bowl lunches this past week, for a change, and they’re quite decent, just teeny-tiny portions.

  2. I got to try those Zatarains Snackers as part of an Online Survey through Pinecone. They’re disgusting. The Outerpart if rubbery and squishy and the cheese tastes like off Branad Cheese Whiz and has this grainy consistency.

  3. Regarding the Zatarain’s Snackers: I’m the guy who took the above photo. Despite them being rather pricey compared to, say, pizza rolls, I had to try the chicken alfredo kind. Like “F” said, the outer portion is rubbery like a cheap pizza roll. Normally that’s not an issue because the oven crisps them up a bit…but I microwaved these. I don’t have a single clue why I microwaved them. I don’t microwave pizza rolls. Why would I microwave these?!?! Anyway, I did, I regretted it immediately after pulling them out of the microwave and I imagine the outside would have been better had I cooked them in an oven like a sane person. The filling, however, was pretty good. Creamy, rich and with quite a lot of heat at the end from the black pepper or paprika or some combination of the two. I dug them and would probably get them again if they went on sale, even if just to try them in the frickin’ oven.
