WHOLEY CHEESE CRACKERS

10 Aug

UntitledOkay these are fun and highly snackable.  Nice crunch and the label don’t lie…it’s a mild cheddar flavor.

These are made by Snyder’s, which is known for pretzels, so it’s cool to see them branching out and making other snacky-snacks.

These are super-new and I have only seen them at Kroger so far —- so snatch these and snack-up…and report back your thoughts!

 

WING RUN – FIERY WINGS

9 Aug

UntitledI have made NO BONES about how much I love the wings from WING RUN.  The fact that they are inside Mazzio’s Pizza (which I also love) makes it a double-trouble restaurant.   Do I get pizza?  Do I get wings?

Answer is usually : yes.

So on my last visit -( this time, Tulsa OK) I was surprised to see they have some new flavors.  The one shown here is called “Fiery Wings”.

I have had “MACH FOUR” (their hottest) so I was curious about these.  I got some boneless and was ready to chow-down.

These have some good flavor – the heat creeps up…but it’s more of your basic buffalo style….that pepper and slight butter flavor.  The sauce was also super-thick too.  Almost like a paste over a sauce.   These are good and I would order them again – BUT….you know I love Lemon Pepper and Mach Four…so I would probably think to get those first.  My two faves!!!

 

BURGER KING – CHICKEN PARM SAMMICH

8 Aug

Untitled“We have sorta been here before…..”

That’s my thoughts as I am sitting here in the drive-thru at the BK.

A few years ago, they slapped some cheese and sauce on their oblong chicken sammich and called it done.

It was barely okay.  Just barely.  This looks like a revamp and serious attempt at a proper chicken parm sammich.

UntitledDid I mention I love chicken parm sammiches???  Cause I totally do.

I have been a big fan of BK for so long…I want them to have a win….and I say that because I have been less than impressed with them for the last several years.

That being said, this is probably the best item I have had at a BK in years.    The bun is soft, the sauce is tangy, the two cheeses bring texture and flavor, and the chicken is crispy and crunchy.   It’s a great little sammich.

And that is what bothers me.   It feels like it doesn’t live up to the $5 dollar price tag.  At $4 I would love it.   But it’s smaller than a whopper and feels like I am spending alot on a little.    Still good tho.   Check it out and report back below!

LITTLE CAESARS EXTRA MOST BESTEST

3 Aug

UntitledOkay first of all I love the name.   Caesar talks like me.  We could be mates.   Pizza. Pizza.

The concept is simple.  It’s….wait…

…it tells you on the box…duh.

So yeah – the most cheese and the most pepperoni for six bucks.   I have always been a fan of LC….their square pizzas mainly…but I like round too…

UntitledThe first thing I noticed was the crust is thicker than normal.  I am sure this is to handle the weight of all that extra cheese and meat.

I really liked the thicker crust.  This pizza has some serious HEFT to it.   It’s solid and filling.   It’s also twice as greasy as their regular pie…..as you can see …there was so much grease that it soaked through the box and was actually seeping into my car seat…..

…..but DAMN this pie was AWESOME!!!!!  The extra REALLY sets it off.   Get a side of CRAZY SAUCE to go with and you got one hell of a pizza night.

They TOTALLY need to keep this on the menu.   Or at least in the rotation of specials.   DEFINITELY worth it.

STRAWBERRY NUT M&Ms

1 Aug

UntitledHiya.   Welcome back.

I’m really not sure what a “Strawberry Nut” is but these M&M’s are some kind of damn awesome!   These are your basic peanut candies…but there is a hint of strawberry flavoring in there….it’s mild but addictive.  They also have a color code to match the flavor….red…pink…green….LIMITED EDITION….AVAILABLE FOR A SHORT TIME… go stock up now!!!!

woo

DAREDEVIL BONLESS WYNGZ – GARLIC PARMESAN

30 Mar

UntitledNow you KNOW I LOVES me some wings.  Bone-in, bone-out, bone-less, bone-whatever.   One of the great flavors for wings is Garlic Parmesan…so when I saw these in the freezer at Walmart I was interested.

Two trays of microwaveable “wyngz” with “kicker” sauce if I want it extra spicy?   Hmmmmm…..go on.

Well fresh from my microwave these were NOT good.  They were soggy and chewy and did I say NOT good already?

Having most of my afternoon free, I decided to go ahead and fire-up the oven and cook these suckers ol’ fashion style….and that result was way better…duh.

I enjoyed the flavor of the kicker packets and the garlic parm sauce as well.  I would for sure buy these again…but I would never microwave them again.   woof.

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. 

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!!!!!

10 Oct

UntitledKeep an eye out, snack fans.   Hostess is looking to make Halloween special with new versions of your old favorites.

Those Glo Balls look cool…scary cakes…eh… but those twinkies….look kinda  gross…..or is it just me?
