WEEK IN REVIEWS – 5/10/2014

Zipper

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

The combination of funnel cake, ice cream, and strawberries looks great, but to get a full carnival experience, I’d also need to throw up and have loose change fall out of my pockets while on the Zipper ride. (via Grub Grade)

NERDS!!! (via Brand Eating)

Onion, black pepper, celery seed, cayenne pepper, parsley, basil, marjoram, bay leaf, oregano, thyme, savory, rosemary, cumin, mustard, coriander, garlic, carrot, orange peel, tomato granules, lemon juice powder, and oil of lemon. We didn’t start the fire. It was always burning since the world’s been turning. (via What’s Good at Trader Joe’s)

My eyes originally thought it read Water Black Forest Ham McFlurry. They were wrong. Either I need to see an eye doctor or I’m craving pork. Or both. (via McDonald’s Around the World)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES – Nabisco Limited Edition Dill Pickle Wheat Thins

Limited Edition Dill Pickle Wheat Thins

I’m a big fan of Nabisco’s Dill Sea Salt & Olive Oil Triscuit, so I think these look dill-ightful, dill-icious, and dill-ectable. (Spotted by Nick at Hannaford.)

QUICK REVIEW: Panda Express Shiitake Kale Chicken Breast

Panda Express Shiitake Kale Chicken Breast

Purchased Price: $7.89 (2-entree plate)
Size: N/A
Purchased at: Panda Express
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Panda Express’ healthiest chicken entree (lowest in fat, saturated fat, sodium), so if I feel guilty about getting Orange Chicken, I’ll feel less so if I order this as my second entree. Tender chicken. So much broccoli that they should’ve called it Broccoli Lovers Shiitake Kale Chicken Breast. If you drink too many smoothies and salads with kale, here’s a different way you can consume kale.
Cons: The gingery sauce didn’t really excite my taste buds. It has less sodium than most Panda Express entrees, but the sauce also has a really salty flavor, which made my taste buds a bit irritated. Shiitake mushrooms don’t bring anything to the flavor table. A slightly embarrassing amount of kale; I can get more kale for $1 at a farmer’s market when it’s closing.
