WEEK IN REVIEWS – 5/27/2017

Here are a few product reviews posted this week from other blogs we follow of stuff we probably won’t try.

To my amazement, it didn’t disintegrate and leave a crumbly Superfund-level disaster zone on the oven floor. The thought of scrubbing out scorched pizza remains definitely crossed my mind, but thankfully it did not come to pass.(via What’s Good at Trader Joe’s)

Rainbow Crunch tastes like a pleasantly puréed parade of its ancestor cereals’ greatest fruit hits: lemon, lime, raspberry, a dash of watermelon, and whatever wildberry—that lovable blue wild card—is supposed to taste like.(via Cerealously)

Let’s taste… and it’s a gummy mess. Uggg. You know what Friendlys? [redacted] You totally missed the point of all natural.(via On Second Scoop)

What really works wonderfully in this flavor is the pop rock studded dark chocolate, which delivers on everything it promised to be. It’s incredibly dark and bitter with tons of small pop rocks that immediately start sizzling the second I chomp into them; and it really does feel like cannons going off in my mouth.(via Sean’s Skillet)
