Orange Sorbet Coca-Cola

Review: Orange Sorbet Coca-Cola

It’s been a good year anyone who enjoys different flavour offshoots of the standard Coca-Cola brands. Cherry Coke Zero seems to be back again in limited quantities (for how long?), the Diet Coke line has been relaunched with a bunch of strange new flavours (more on that in an upcoming post, most likely), and there […]

Food Fight: Aero vs. Mirage chocolate bars

The food world can be strange at times. Mergers and acquisitions can create strange bedfellows, with junk food companies owning health food brands, and competing products in the same category somehow winding up under the same roof. And so it has come to pass that one company – Nestlé – has, since the 1980s, owned […]

Nescafé Sweet and Creamy Original

Review: Nescafé Sweet and Creamy Original

K-Cups. Those awful little capsules that cost way too much (which you’d know if you could do basic math, which, statistically speaking, you probably can’t), weigh on the conscience of anyone who thinks about future generations who’ll be stuck on this increasingly shitty space rock, and taste about as good as the hot brown water […]

Reese Big Cup Stuffed with Pieces

Review: Reese Big Cup Stuffed with Pieces

When faced with the unenviable convenience-store dilemma of choosing between Reese Peanut Butter Cups and Reese’s Pieces, your choice, until recently, has been an unsatisfactory “pick one or buy both.” What kind of horrible world do we live in?

Review: Kerr’s Maple Kisses

Around our house, maple syrup coats our pancakes, sweetens our smoky chipotle chili and mingles with lemon on our standby oven-roasted baby potatoes. I try not to be caught without a bottle of the stuff in the fridge. Why? Because it’s amazing. But maple is also a part of the tourist culture in Canada, with […]

Around the Web: Millennials rejecting processed food?

There was an interesting story in last Saturday’s National Post about young’uns rejecting processed food, and the impact it’s been having on the food industry. It’s certainly worth a read, if you haven’t seen it yet. At the core of the story is the revelation that younger eaters are rejecting the processed foods of the […]

Experiment: Writing a Letter for Nutritional Information (Updated!)

While writing the last review I posted for Tic Tac Mixers, I noticed there was a lack of nutritional information on the package. Being a modern gentleman, I responded to this information deficit by googling Tic Tac Mixers. This returned the company website, which had the info on it. Easy enough. But if you read […]

Tic Tac Mixers Cherry Cola

Review: Tic Tac Mixers Cherry Cola

I’m not sure what happened to Tic Tac in the last few years, but they’ve gone from predictably conservative to curiously experimental. Some of their limited edition flavours have been surprisingly good, and the tried-and-true plastic container filled with tiny little pill-shaped candies inside never gets old. They somehow maintain the ring of familiarity of […]
