NEWS: KFC Blows The Opportunity To Have An Awesome April Fool’s Prank with Their New Kentucky Grilled Chicken

If Kentucky Fried Chicken (aka KFC if you’re nasty) introduced their new Kentucky Grilled Chicken thirteen days earlier on April Fool’s Day it would’ve blew my mind because I wouldn’t know if it was real or not and I’m sure others would’ve thought the same way, which might’ve created a viral buzz throughout the internets, causing people to tweet, blog, vlog and other techie words that have only been created within the past five years. Instead they release it on April 14, which is known as Not April Fool’s Day.

The Kentucky Grilled Chicken is marinated and seasoned with a blend of six secret herbs and spices and slow-grilled. Because of its use of a particular blend of spices and custom-designed ovens it’s being called by KFC, the second secret recipe. Pieces of the new chicken will have between 70 to 180 calories and four to nine grams of fat. Their original recipe chicken has between 130 to 360 calories and 8 to 24 grams of fat.

The Kentucky Grilled Chicken is available in KFC stores nationwide beginning today.

REVIEW: Glaceau XXX Vitamin Water 10

Glaceau XXX Vitamin Water 10

I could stuff this review for the Glaceau XXX Vitamin Water 10 with sexual references in every possible hole I could find, but I’m not going to get behind that and force something like that down your throats, because I’m better than that.

For example, I’m not going to talk about the three antioxidant-filled fruits in this beverage — acai, blueberry and pomegranate — coming together to form a cool, fruity manage-a-trois with so much pomegrindin’ that they would make each other turn blueberry and scream acai at the top of their lungs in orgasmic pleasure.

I’m not going to stoop to the crass level I’ve stooped to in hundreds of reviews before this one and in the previous two paragraph…and in the hundreds of reviews after this one. I’m going to try to be classy and make this review one that I wouldn’t be afraid to share with my parents and second graders, except for the first two paragraphs.

Glaceau’s XXX Vitamin Water 10 is the latest beverage to have the stevia sweetener Truvia added to it. The maker of the sweetener, Coca-Cola, has been pushing it hard up promoting their new sweetener a lot and have been slowly inserting it into adding it to various beverages across their numerous product lines. However Truvia is not the only sweetener in this beverage. Crystalline fructose and erythritol completes the sticky threesome trifecta of natural sweeteners.

Keep it clean, Marvo. Keep it clean.

While the XXX in its name represents the three fruits that provide the 50 milligrams of berry polyphenols and the flavor in this beverage, the 10 in its name symbolizes the 10 inches of man 10 calories it has per 8-ounce serving, which is one-fifth the calories in regular Glaceau XXX Vitamin Water. This is possible thanks to the foreskinned aforementioned Holy Trinity of group of natural sweeteners.

Focus, young Padawan.

While the Truvia-sweetened version has one-fifth of the calories found in regular XXX Vitamin Water, it also has about two-thirds of the flavor. So if you think regular Vitamin Water is too watery tasting, the lower calorie version will seem even more so with a weird aftertaste. Its color and smell also are lighter than the original version. I also wouldn’t recommend drinking it warm.

Yes. There you go. No sinful thoughts. No sinful thoughts.

…DAMMIT! I can’t take it anymore. FAIL.

The Glaceau XXX Vitamin Water 10 was good and it tasted how I expected it to taste, but it didn’t make me want to wrap my lips around its gloryhole and…(the copy here was taken out after it was deemed to be so extremely explicit it would make strippers blush and pornstars cheer).

Oh, me likey happy ending!

THE WEEK IN REVIEWS – 4/11/2009

Here are a few product reviews posted this week from other blogs wrapped in an HTML shell and served with immature writing.

I didn’t expect the new Dragonball movie to be under 90 minutes long. I thought it was going to be extremely long and drawn out, just like the anime series, which would take ten episodes to complete one fight scene. (via Pajiba)

From what I read on the internets, kosher colas are supposed to be really good because they use sugar instead of HFCS. Unfortunately, here on this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean the Jewish population is less than one percent. So I don’t think any stores here carry it. (via BevReview)

There are no winners, only losers, when comparing raspberry flavored jell bars. (via Second Rate Snacks)

Nearly a pound of cheese? Pfff…That’s not an extreme amount of cheese, Papa John’s. Where’s the cheese stuffed crust? Where’s the cheese dipping sauce? Where’s the cheesy bread spread out on top of the pizza like pepperoni? (via We Rate Stuff)

This reminds me of The Book of Bunny Suicides (via Candyblog)

REVIEW: Bawls Guarana G33K B33R

Aww shit! Bawls Guarana G33K B33R is here.
Raise your bumped glass bottle and cheer.
If you’re with a friend, make your bottles clink.
It takes a real geek to handle this drink.

[Interlude 1]
How do you know if you’re a real geek? Well here’s a little test.
Let’s see if you answer any of the questions with a “yes.”

Do you talk trash to 12-year-olds while in Halo combat?
Can you recite Jabba the Hutt’s lines at a drop of a hat?
Do you open up MS-DOS on a 486 to reminisce?
Does construction with Legos give you orgasmic bliss?
Do you have every episode of BattleBots on VHS tapes?
Does your closet contain Batman’s utility belt and cape?
Does your computer case glow with colored LED lights?
Do you download shit thru BitTorrent by the gigabytes?
Do you subscribe and read Slashdot’s RSS feed?
Do you dress up in cosplay before you do the deed?

[Interlude 2]
You don’t do any of those things? Shhhhiiiit.
Well here are a few others G33K B33R is meant for.

Does the name “Caprica” make your naughty parts tingle?
Can you play on your wind instrument the X-Files jingle?
When you roll, do you only do it with a 12-sided die?
Did the trailer for the G.I. Joe movie make you cry?
Do you get hard playing Risk when you takeover lands?
Can you display the Vulcan salute with both hands?
In Borders, do you flip through books with dragons on the cover?
Did someone break up with you because you’re a WoW lover?
Do you call the Lord of the Rings toys on your shelf figurines?
Does Lara Croft sometimes end up in your wet dreams?

[Interlude 3]
Nothing?
Well then, maybe G33K B33R isn’t for you.
So here’s what you’re missing.

The caffeine in Bawls G33K B33R makes it like root beer on ‘roid
I like this tasty beverage as much as Michael Jackson loves little boys.
It gives me a kick but not as hard as other energy drinks I’ve tried.
The high fructose corn syrup it contains makes me sad inside.
Its low carbonation makes it easy to drink and doesn’t tickle my ‘stache.
Bawls Guarana G33K B33R makes cheap root beers taste like ass.
It’s got a little bite, but no bitterness from the guarana can be found.
Cuz it’s only ten ounces I can’t pour one out when a homie goes down.

NEWS: Kellogg’s Sets Up Possible Nerd Rumble With New Star Trek Cereal That’s Similar To A Star Wars Cereal

The new Star Trek Cereal boldly goes where other cereals that promoted movies with the word “star” in them have gone before.

It’s made up of sweetened oat cereal and marshmallows, which were the same ingredients found in 2005’s Star Wars Cereal. These similarities might lead to a confrontation between Star Wars and Star Trek fanatics about which cereal is better, which would be much like the disagreements those nerds have over which movie franchise is superior.

Oh, I can’t wait for the Force-Fx lightsaber replicas and the plastic phasers set to kill to be drawn at each other. All I would need are some Princess Leias in gold bikinis and a few Lt. Uhuras and it would give me a total nerdgasm that would take weeks to recover from.

A 3/4 cup dry serving of the Star Trek Cereal contains 120 calories, 1 gram of fat, 0 grams of saturated fat, 220 milligrams of sodium, 55 milligrams of potassium, 26 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 12 grams of sugar, 3 grams of protein and a bunch of vitamins and minerals.
