WEEK IN REVIEWS – 10/29/2011


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

BOO! Orange candy coated chocolate pieces in chocolate chip cookies. Oh, that’s SCARY! (via Junk Food Betty)

Even scarier? How about Sugar-Free Pumpkin Peeps that, according to its packaging, “may cause stomach discomfort and/or a mild laxative effect.” Muahahaha! SCARY…FOR YOUR UNDERWEAR! (via Rodzilla Reviews)

When I saw pictures of this scary item it shook me to the bone, which the scary item does not have. It would make Dr. Frankenstein proud. (via Tampa Bay Food Monster)

Want to scare the kiddies this Halloween? Nothing scares the kiddies more than…VEGETABLES! (via Freezer Burns)

This gummy candy is spooky. But not when you first look at them, because you can’t really tell what they are. But if you look closely and let you brain process it, then you’ll figure out what they are, and then they’ll be SPOOKY! (via Candyblog)

  1. Haven’t tried the green bean fries reviewed by Freezer but we have Allen’s battered green beans (frozen) here and they are really, really good. Otherwise I only like green beans in three bean salad. Yes, I’ve had meals where my veggies were potato French fries, battered green beans, and sweet potato fries… and maybe onion rings. Hey, it all counts!

    Reminds me of an old Nickelodeon variety show with a skit about candy in the form of broccoli, carrots, Brussels sprouts etc for easy substitution on the plate without tipping off the parentals. Although personally I think such veggies are just served wrong to kids. Broccoli should be finely chopped (florets only, cheap frozen broccoli is full of inedible stems) and used in moderation in casseroles, or served raw with dip. Carrots likewise and they go great with peanut butter. (Try an organically grown raw carrot and you will be spoiled for life, they taste like a whole different species). And Brussels sprouts should either be chopped up f

    1. Oops, I meant Brussels sprouts should be eaten as finger food, one tasty leaf at a time until you get to the equally tasty core. Or used in mixtures but chopped fine. When I prepare a few frozen Brussels sprouts to use mixed with something else, though, they rarely make it into the recipe because I keep eating them leaf by leaf. The absolute worst way is how they are shown in sitcoms where some forlorn youngster is forced to stay at the table until he or she “finishes his/her vegetables”. They always show the kid trying to manage a whole sprout on a fork. Yikes. Child abuse. Stop using vegetables as punishment, parents. Nobody ever makes kids stay in dinner table detention until they finish their ice cream for some reason.
