WEEK IN REVIEWS – 9/23/2017

Starbucks 003

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

The Whoopie Pie turned out to be bigger than I thought it would be (I figured it’d be Oreo Cakester-sized because they used to be) but it was actually the width of a decent-sized cookie (bigger than a Chips Ahoy but not quite so big as a Grandma’s cookie).(via Brand Eating)

Rocky road is not one of my go-to staple ice cream flavors, but this is the best rocky road I’ve ever had.(via Sean’s Skillet)

Pumpkin cheesecake over a fudgy brownie base? Yes, please! Looks delicious! Except once you bite into it…(via What’s Good at Trader Joe’s)

I thought aus jus might provide that needed ‘oomph,’ but both the creamy sauce in the sandwich and the dip served alongside curiously lacked in flavor and seasoning.(via Brand Eating)

I don’t think I’ve ever had a ‘smoky’ cola before, but this certainly qualifies as one. By the way, Smoky Cola sounds like a soda in a video game.(via The Soda Jerks)

WEEK IN REVIEWS – 9/16/2017

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.
