Yes I know Zingers have returned to places like Kroger and Wal-Mart, but until I could find them in vending machines or convenient stores – I didn’t consider the “comeback” complete.
Well now I have, so they are indeed now “back” and in full speed. This is how I remember Zingers. Not in the box of 12 – but rather the 3 pack that I would find at school or the SEV. (7-11).
These – just like the ones in the 12 pack – are smaller than you remember but taste probably 90% how you remember. The frosting on these seems a little thinner than I remember but it’s still awesome to have these babies back on the shelf.
Just when you thought you had to wait in line….
With all kinds of sammich places popping up – one of the drawbacks to these places are that they are walk-up joints. You gotta go in and order your sammiches to go.
Driving through Arlington today, I notice that the Potbelly at this location has a DRIVE-THRU.
This. Is. REVOLUTIONARY. Friendly as they are – sometimes you don’t want to stand in line, or go inside. It’s freezing outside and the idea I can get a sammich from a place I love without getting out of the car is awesome. We need more of these.
I loved the idea of Mickey D’s doing wings. They weren’t fantastic but they were decent – and the availability of them made them even more attractive.
They did not sell well. Due in part to the price. So McDonald’s pulled them and tried to sell them off to other countries that might want them for their business. Or so I heard.
Evidently that didn’t work out because not only are they back- but they are at a serious discount. You can get 5 for 3 bucks – 10 wings for 5 bucks —which is not too bad a deal. So if you liked them at full-price…maybe you will love’em on discount
Another Japanese import snack – These are very close to being like a spicy Lay’s potato chip.
I was hoping for something super spicy – but it was rather mild. Good crunch though.
um…yeah.. so that’s it for today.
(on a side note, I take a week off and lose 10 followers on twitter…wow some of you readers are a tough crowd!!!!)
Ah, the original. To me at least – this was my first brush with at home sno-cones. My best friend’s sister had one and we constantly stole it to make sno-cones.
It was fun but it was an absolute mess. Time after time I thought if I added more ice or cranked it faster – I would get fresh-powder-type-snow. No joy. Just a constant mess.
So seeing the box that it’s “new improved” I can only hope they got a better shaver mechanism on it.
Performance aside, it’s still the absolute best ice breaker (no pun intended) to have sitting on my bar. Everyone wants to see it, or play with it, or shave ice into their cocktails from it.
Oh lord, you have answered the prayers for so many— but it’s just a little too-little-too-late…because— surprise! – Twinkies are already available.
BUT- for 8 bucks (it was even cheaper than in the pic) I can use it to hack all sorts of other recipes.
This thing gets HOT quick, so I don’t know what they were thinking letting kids play with this. I got it at Toys R Us – and believe me, it’s not a toy.
It comes with a bag to fill my own Twinkies – and even has recipes to make original, chocolate, and red velvet Twinkies. I think that’s kinda awesome.
But. I couldn’t resist oing my own thing straight out the box. So I made cornbread – which was AWESOME!!!
But I think what really drove home the point of how killer this little unit is – BANANA NUT BREAD.
So with a ready-mix in hand I made them – with a twist – I found a pudding-cup in the fridge begging to be used so……I took the filling bag and created Banana Nut Muffins with Banana Pudding filling.
Out. Of. This. World. Yummy!
8 bucks well spent .
