RICO CHEESE

8 Oct


GOD knows I love nachos.   The Sev (7-11) has afforded me the opportunity to have them 24 hours a day.   That I am thankful for.

But it always required me dragging my lazy self to the actual Sev.

Roaming around the aisles of Wal-Mart (ever notice how many other people just apparently hang out at W/M?   Not really buying anything – just wandering around looking— usually teens—am I the only one seeing this?) anyway-  I found this great little four pack of RICOS cheese sauce.

I have found cans of Ricos cheese before – but to be honest it’s way too much cheese for me as I am making a single serving.   I am also the type that will never use the left overs.  I will just forget I have it or something.

So the fact that they have this lil’ four pack (slightly smaller serving than a Snack Pack pudding cup) I am excited at the quickness I can now have nachos at the ol’ casa.   The only problem is that I can’t find this anywhere but Wal-Mart.

I don’t know what life is like in your area – but here in the DFW, Wal-Mart – that is any, all, and every Wal-Mart is just about a nightmare when it comes to checking out.

Self service line is always broken.  Long lines with three available cashiers.  No matter what time it is.

So in order to have my cheese and eat it too – I have to shop at Wal-Mart like what I hear the early settlers did.   They would ride into town and shop for the month or so in advance so they don’t have to go back for a while.

That’s the only way I can talk myself into walking in that Wal-Mess to shop.

TASTE TEST: JINGOS crackers

26 Jul

Let me be CLEAR.   I am a BOLD taste lover.   I love garlic.  I love Parmesan.

But I have to be honest.  These crackers took me to the mat.   And I tapped out.

These small crackers hit like a five-pound sledge.  The crunch is great and I am thinking of making a bread crumb breadding out of them.

But as a snack, I can’t have more than a couple of handfuls.   I am telling you that these are IN YOUR FACE.  It’s like putting a clove of real garlic on a spoonful of parm cheese and eating it.   It’s fantastic at first and then overpowering.

This is actually a positive I think because it means I can’t just sit and go through a box in one sitting.  These puppies will last.

So I challenge all you out there that are made of sterner stuff than I.   Try these and see if you can satisfy your cravings.  My money is on these crackers drop-kicking you into submission.
