ALPHA BITS

3 Aug

UntitledHoly Smokes, this is still around!!!!!   I haven’t seen Alpha Bits in years.   I had totally forgot about it until I stumbled across it at Minyard.   Ohhhhh trusty Minyard.   Always having the right thing at the right time.

Now the flavor and shapes look and taste exactly as I remember it. Sweet with a good and solid crunch for a good little while.  All the things kids love about fun cereals.

What I didn’t remember…and still have no idea…is what in the bloody blue hell is this SUPER WHY character is on my cereal.   I mean what does he have to do with this?

He has a book on his chest as a logo?   Is this to encourage me to read?   Instead of Super Why maybe they should have called him “What’s a Book??”  because kids today are not into reading.

Still a damn fine cereal  though.   One that obviously has very little in the way of budget because everyone should know it’s still around and a classic.

TACO BELL CAP’N CRUNCH DELIGHTS

31 Jul

UntitledHoly Smokes these are killer!!!!!!!   You know I am not that much of a regular customer at Taco Bell but these might change all that.

These pastries are rolled in Cap’n Crunch berries and have a warm filling inside each bite.

Absolutely genius idea here.   Best item on the menu.

BUGLES

30 Jul

UntitledYes, in my entire life, I have never tried Bugles until this day.  I have heard over and over and over how great they were.  A real addictive snacker, these Bugles.  So I am told.

And I just don’t get it.   I found them dry and pedantic.  Like seriously, besides the shape, what am I missing?

meh.

NICE! FRUIT AND NUT TRAIL MIX

29 Jul

UntitledAnother 99 cent bargain from the Walgreens.   This is a blend of peanuts, raisins, banana chips, mango, pineapple, and cashews.   Kinda of a different blend than I see normally in trail mixes and the go together well.   This is another great item from that “Nice!” brand that you can throw in a bag or keep in your desk when those snack-attacks hit you.

CHICK-FIL-A SAUCE

28 Jul

UntitledOkay stop looking at me like I am crazy.  I didn’t even know this existed until yesterday.

The lady at CFA said “would you like any sauce” and what she actually said was “Do you want to try our Chick-fil-a sauce”.

uh…sure.

Now most of the JFC gang loves this sauce.  It’s mild and has a nice and easy flavor.  But I can’t figure out why….ohhh  here we go…a look at the ingredients tell me this is a mustard/bbq/mayo type sauce…..

….and I hate mayo.    But if you love mayo or the mix I just described give it shot and tell me how wrong I am.

WENDY’s BLUEBERRY PINEAPPLE FRUITea Chillers

27 Jul

UntitledOkay I no idea this had any sort of TEA in it.  And I didn’t care.  This thing is so tangy and fruity and killer.  I haven’t been a fan of much of their recent food additions but their drinks continue to stay fresh and flavorful.

This is my new favorite thing at Wendy’s.  They also have an Orange/Mango and Blackberry Lemonade so stay tuned for those.

McCHICKEN Sammich

14 Jul

UntitledOne dollar, I say.   I don’t eat often at Mickey D’s these days (no chicken bites…no chicken selects….no me showing up) but I was actually there to try a different item (see what I did there – I teased you so you have to come back and see what the other product is later this week)

and I realized I don’t think I have ever had a “mcchicken”.   Now dear friends you know I loves me some chicken, so to think I haven’t tried this before and…

(note- you have tried it — the spicy version anyway- and reviewed it two separate times because you are so goofy you forgot you already reviewed it the first time- hint:  you kinda liked it – both times–you are welcome –sincerely–JFC research staff)

so uh… yeah.   Anyway I ordered this sans mayo and mountain of lettuce and it’s a decent snack…this is all sounding familiar now.   Anyway it’s a buck and it tastes better than the burger of the same size.   So try it.  Or don’t.   Chances are I will forget I wrote this review in a few weeks anyway and will review it again in six months so stay tuned!
