Hibiscus.

Here are a few product reviews posted this week from other blogs we follow.

Pear & Hibiscus would make an awesome name for an indie pop band. (via On Second Scoop)

If I ever write a letter to Cheetos Puffs, I can use these at the end of my note to show how much I love them. (via Grocery Gems)

If these cookies that taste like something I’d eat in the morning, can I eat them for breakfast? Oh, why am I asking? I’m a grown man and I can do whatever I don’t tell my doctor. (via Junk Food Guy)

If Trader Joe’s makes a line of high fiber products, like Fiber One, I’d like them to name the line Trader Toot’s. Let’s make that happen! (via What’s Good at Trader Joe’s)

Utz Kettle BBQ Lattice

Gourmet cut is like lattice cut and waffle cut. I’d also like to throw in “net cut” and “diamond cut.” So feel free to use those potato chip companies. (Spotted by Adam at Weis Markets.)
