Fruit Twistables
This is that candy with the commercial about claymation bootcamp for fruit. It's one thick rope of fruit candy with two smaller ropes wrapped around it. Not bad at all, but it could stand to have a little more flavor.


Capri Sun Juicers
These are Gushers knockoffs that have a different shape and texture to the solid part, and a worse flavor. I went through a whole box of eight or so pouches in about five days, really only because I wanted to get rid of them.


Pop Secret Cheese Popcorn
My favorite popcorn flavor in those tins that line the stores at Christmas is actually the cheese flavor. So when I saw this at the store, I though I'd really love it; I mean, it's cheese, and it's higher quality. So, I microwaved a back, am eating it now, and am wondering one thing; how does cheap popcorn wind up tasting a helluva lot better than the "fresh" kind?


Chili's Sirloin Steak cooked medium
The second best kind of beef ever, right behind prime rib cooked medium. And I found a night in the fridge and thirty seconds in the microwave makes it extra tender.


Cracker Barrel's Sirloin Steak cooked medium
If it's one thing Cracker Barrel's taught me about dining out, it's don't get steak anywhere that isn't a steakhouse.

The tostada taco I had for dinner last night:

Good, but could've used more flavorful salsa. Lettuce and beef were also noticably absent.

The commercials say this has half the carbs and half the sugar of a regular Coke. If those commercials told the truth, then they would say "Half the carbs, half the sugar, half the flavor"


Dr. Pepper

People (Especially those over at Fireball20xl, see "I LIKE DP!" comics) idolize this soda. I cannot explain why, but people seem to like soda that tastes like Metallic prunes.


Cinzetti's Rice Balls

While they may not be dried or sprinkled with salt, they are still rice shaped into balls and sprinkled with some tastless mozerella cheese. If you are a fan of rice, especially sticky-rice, then you need to try this if you are at Cinzetti's.


Panda Express's Orange Chicken

While non-lemon Citrus fruits and Poultry may not seem like a good combination, at Panda Express, Orange and Chicken make the best combination ever aside from their Egg Rolls and White Rice.

This is why I must remember not to review anything until I've finished it. That cheese popcorn was more deserving of a 2/10 than 4/10. The cheese flavor was so sharp it didn't even taste like cheese anymore, and was absolutely sickening. I had to force down the last of the bag.

My mom ate one bag, and there's still about four left. Dammit.

I like Dr. Pepper, but I wouldn't call it a gift from God. I prefer Sprite, but I can't stand Sprite from a can.

^Why is it different from a can?

I like Dr. Pepper a whole lot, it's one of my favorite sodas.

It tastes funny, and is always too fizzy.

Now that I think about it, bottled Sprite is the same way. The only way I can get a good Sprite is to get it from a restaurant.

Diet Lime Coke

You know a soda's going to have problems when Lime's mixed with Diet Coke instead of Lemon. (My mom actually likes this)


Sodexho's Taco Salad:

Aside from the refried Beans that hold it in place, this is the tex/mexican food lover's dream.


The Ramen Noodles in a cup:

If there's one thing I've learned from Ramen, it's to avoid Ramen Noodles that aren't in a bag, or not-Oriental or Shrimp Flavour.

Hershey's Take 5 Candy Bar :( Milk Chocolate, caramel, pretzels, peanuts, peanut butter)

I was a little skeptical, you know, having pretzels mixed in with chocolate and all, but Hershey's managed to make this work, and real well. When you bite into it, you feel the crispyness of the pretzel but it melts well with the taste of the chocolate. You can't taste the peanuts, fortunatly, because I don't like peanuts. If you like chocolate I highly recommend this. You don't even have to enjoy pretzels much to like this.

3" thick, 2lbs tenderloin peppercorn steak, with clubhouse spread on marinade or HP sauce, medium rare.

Best damn steak on the planet, of course you have to cook it yourself, for obvious reasons. It's alot better barbequed, and must cooked under a watchful eye. It goes well with steam potatoes(ad butter, cheddar and bacon bits, of course ;) ) and green beans, steamed aswell, but still somewhat crisp better buttered and you should probably ad a bit of salt. (Lord, i'm drooling)

Slim Jims - Mild
Greasy, but addictive. I ate about 17 out of 24 yesterday.


Canned Dr. Pepper
I normally get Dr. Thunder, the Wal-Mart knockoff of Dr. Pepper. Yesterday, there was an employee blocking the Sam's Choice brands, so I bought real Dr. Pepper. Wow. The cheap store brand actually tastes better than the real stuff. I guess Dr. Pepper suffers the same fate as Sprite; being lousy when from a can.


And on that Cheese popcorn, my brother seemed to have liked it, and he ate the last bags. Hooray!

Soda is usually watery to me in restaurants CK, as opposed to having them any other way. Maybe it's just me.
