WEEK IN REVIEWS – 9/10/2011

Fries!

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

There are flavored tablets the Japanese suck on to replenish the salt in their bodies. We also have something like that in the United States, except we call them McDonald’s French fries. (via Japanese Snack Reviews)

This Chocolate Habanero Voodoo Sauce doesn’t have any chocolate, but it sure has a lot of habanero…and voodoo. (via Chocolate Reviews)

Kraft makes Pina Colada-flavored marshmallows. Sadly, I’m 100 percent sure someone is trying to get drunk by eating these non-alcoholic marshmallows. (via Junk Food Guy)

Great. Another reason to be upset the nearest Trader Joe’s is thousands of miles away. (via What’s Good At Trader Joe’s)

Chocolatey Cap’n Crunch isn’t very good, which greatly disappoints me. I hope Cap’n Crunch gets demoted to Midshipm’n Munch? (via Grub Grade)

NEWS: Kraft Jet-Puffed StackerMallows To Make It Easier To Build A S’more Big Mac

Stackermallows on shelf

If I learned anything during my time in the Boy Scouts it’s that camping sucks, latrines smell, mosquitos love my blood, and I’ll probably be killed by a baby deer if I’m ever lost in the wilderness. But not everything I learned in Boy Scouts was negative, I also learned how to make mean s’mores. If there was a s’more making merit badge, I would’ve earned it.

Although, my days of three finger salutes, square knots, and roasting marshmallows over a campfire using a stick are behind me, it’s good to hear s’more technology has advanced with the new Kraft Jet-Puffed StackerMallows, which are flat, thin rectangular marshmallows that can be placed into s’mores like a slice of cheese.

Actually, now that I think about it, perhaps StackerMallows, which comes in 8-ounces packages, aren’t ideal for making s’mores next to the campfire. Regular marshmallows have a cylindrical shape, which makes it easy to poke a stick through, so that it can be toasted over a campfire. On the other hand, the flat, thin shape of the StackerMallows might make that hard to do, unless you earned your sewing merit badge that gave you the skills to thread through things.
