Steak n Shake

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

In other words: Winnie the Pooh would pooh-pooh this moo juice, and Dig’em the Frog wouldn’t dig it, either.” (via Cerealously)

In the end, they’re a bit too much in the middle for me. Not gingery enough to be a sraight-up ginger snack, not anything else enough to be anything else(via What’s Good at Trader Joe’s)

What does it taste like when a yeti gets itself in some troubled fun?(via Thirsty Dudes)

The queso blanco was a little watery on top but got thicker and more flavorful a quarter of the way down. There were occasional diced chunks of jalapeno in it that contributed a sporadic and somewhat varied heat.(via Brand Eating)

Taco Bell

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

It packed a decent amount of heat but it wasn’t spicier than Diablo sauce or the Sriracha sauce Taco Bell offered a while back.(via Brand Eating)

It’s legitimately good. And serious. This isn’t kid stuff or some pseudo-nutro Nature Valley type of deal(via What’s Good at Trader Joe’s)

The ice cream finishes with a really harsh, almost medicinal quality that I initially thought was the result of way too much vanilla extract, but looking at the ingredients it’s pretty obvious it’s the sweetener they used – stevia.” (via Sean’s Skillet)

Huffing deep into the bag, Malt-O-Meal’s Chocolatey Chip Cookie Bites cereal smells simply euphoric—a mix of oily and fudgy.” (via Cerealously)

How did these cookies smell so good, but fall short in flavor?” (via Snack Cellar)

BONUS: If you want to read my review of convenience store pho (Vietnamese soup) that I wrote for a lifestyle site here in Hawaii, here you go.

Baskin Robbin Belgian Waffle

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

The waffle pieces are soft and fluffy chunks of Saturday mornings finest, and have the chewy cakey texture most baked goods take on in ice cream. ” (via Sean’s Skillet)

I took a sip and…you guys, I had my doubts, but this is amazing.(via Sometimes Foodie)

My first spread of Halloween Pop-Tarts yielded a bootleg Jeff Dunham puppet a mustachioed demon, an eerily de-shelled Pop-Tart, and a Frankenstein who must be stuck in 2007 because he’s still embarrassingly trying to imitate the Troll Face in public.” (via Cerealously)

Turns out it’s a vinegar that’s distilled from the ectoplasmic residue of ghosts and otherworldly beings. Oh, no wait.(via What’s Good at Trader Joe’s)

Needless to say, this is one salty burger… 2270 milligrams of sodium. It’s weird to say this but I could’ve used some more bread.(via Grub Grade)

I think they forgot the salt.(via What’s Good at Trader Joe’s)

It’s quite salty; not so much that it’s discomforting but enough that you might consider some bread or rice to go with.(via Brand Eating)

This is without a doubt the most aggressively salted ice cream I have ever had and it is nothing short of phenomenal.” (via Sean’s Skillet)

The chocolate swirl is definitely salty.(via On Second Scoop)

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

There wasn’t a line out the door, but the parking lot was full and the conveyor belt of doughy dreams was stopped and nearly empty – the first batch had already sold out!” (via Sean’s Skillet)

Despite the name, the Bacon & Maple French Toasted Donut is not very strong on the French toast front.(via Brand Eating)

It was just a slimy mush.(via What’s Good at Trader Joe’s)

I double checked and asked “Vanilla?” and he said “Yes, Italian Vanilla”…So I took these to my seat ready to find out what Vanilla Nuggets could ever be like.(via Travelling McD’s)
