HOOTERS TRIPLE DOG DARE

1 Nov

UntitledYou can’t have a sauce called “Triple Dog Dare” and NOT expect me to try it.

So I tried it.   In the minutes waiting for these I was wondering who was going to drive me to the hospital.   How was I going to survive these?

Well, I had them and I am still here.  These were SOOOOOOO not what I expected.  I had to ask twice if I received the correct sauce flavor.  I am told it was correct.  These were hot…but with some added paprika or something it seemed.    Decent flavor but they are nowhere near the top of their HEAT LEVEL chart like they showed me.  I wouldn’t try them again…Hooters has plenty of other sauces that are wayyyyy better.

REESE’S STUFFED CUPS

31 Oct

UntitledI would have LOVED to have been in this meeting.

BOSS: We need to get sales of our cups and pieces up so let’s brainstorm….Dale?

DALE: uh….maybe put the pieces INSIDE the cups?

PHIL: that is stupid!!!

BOSS: You are right, that is stupid.   Phil, you’re FIRED.   This is so stupid it’s genius!!!  It just might work!

PHIL: But Boss….

BOSS: Are you still here?  Didn’t I fire you a while back?

UntitledFor me, this is indulgence inside of indulgence. I love both products so the six-year-old in me was ecstatic at the notion of eating a favorite inside another favorite.

But as you can see…the cups I got don’t quite have as many pieces as the photo on the wrapper. I think I hit two or three per cup.   I was hoping for more but still this is a kick-ass idea and treat for the kid in all of us.

LITTLE DEBBIE FUDGE-DIPPED STRAWBERRY CAKES

28 Oct

UntitledJust when I think we are done, Debbie manages to figure out a way to make us go together again. These Fudge-dipped Strawberry Cakes right here????

These Fudge-dipped Strawberry Cakes right here????

Oh my damn….these are the best Little Debbie snack I have ever had. I love the taste of strawberry and fudge/chocolate so these are right out of my mind and into my mouth.  Very simple and did I mention these things are @##(*)(ing incredible when dipped in chocolate milk?  WOO!

WHATABURGER SEA SALT AND PEPPER KETTLE CHIPS

27 Oct

UntitledThese. Are.  Genius.  I know a ton of people that love to eat potato chips with their hamburgers over French fries.   I think it would be a master stroke if they offered these as an option in their restaurants.  I bet there would be plenty of takers.

As far as the chips themselves….they are kettle cooked and have a nice crunch to them.   The sea salt and pepper are nice and even-neither overpowers the other.  I would have enjoyed more of a slight  more slight lean to the pepper-side, but that is just me.

Lotta people around here that are super Whatta-loyal, so these could really take off. I hope they do.  Can’t wait to try the other flavors so stay tuned!

TACO CABANA MANGO MARGARITAS

26 Oct

UntitledOkay, many a night have I got pretty hammered at the Taco Cabana.  I love their food and their Happy Hour Margaritas are a no-frills way to take the edge off.  Those Strawberry margaritas???  Oh yeah….

Well today I see a sign that says MANGO MARGARITA and I am like “Shut up and take my money”!!!!

I love mango.  I love margaritas.  Together?   HOO-GAH!!!

It’s a limited time thing (of course) and I order a few for the table and chillax.  These are good.   Nice and mango-y.  

But…they do have a little on the back-end.   In my mind a good sweet drink like this when you can NOT taste the booze at all.   On the back-end here I taste alcohol.  It’s strong and bitter.   Like a well tequila was used for this.   Which is fine, I mean it was less than two bucks so what do you expect?  Good…but not as good as the strawberry ones they normally have. 

CICI’S PIZZA – HOT BUFFALO WINGS

17 Oct

UntitledYou don’t see much CiCi’s stuff here on the JFC and that is because most of the time it’s a lackluster experience.

Until this time.

For some reason I got a hankering for wings while at a Cici’s and gave them a go.   Got them to go actually.  I got your basic ten piece “Hot Buffalo” and you know what….. from CiCi’s….?????….. These were actually pretty damn good.    Nice amount of char from the oven-baking….and a sauce with a good volume of heat.  These are the best thing on the menu!!!! ……next to those cinnamon rolls….woo

SHASTA SODA POPS

14 Oct

UntitledI have said this quite often…..while wondering around places like Big Lots, Dollar Tree, and the like.   Shasta is a damn fine soda pop.  It’s also INSANELY cheap for what you get.   Shown here are four packs for ONE DOLLAR!  CRAAAAAAZZZZZYYYYY!!!!!   I also challenge you to find a flavor of Shasta that IS NOT AWESOME…because they are all bursting with flavor…especially the Root Beer, Strawberry, and my fave…. TIKI PUNCH!!!!!
