Review: General Tao Chicken potato chips

Take potato chips and combine them with General Tao chicken, a staple of North American Chinese food, and what do you get? An OK chip that doesn’t quite hit the mark. Part of the President’s Choice World of Flavours line of potato chips, these General Tao chips are rated medium on the spicy scale, and, […]

Review: So Nice for Coffee soy creamer

As much as I like soy milk, I’ve never been able to bring myself to add it to my morning coffee. My lactose intolerance isn’t so bad that I can’t have a splash of milk in my cup of Ethiopia Sidamo at Starbucks. At home, there’s usually always a jug of Lactaid-treated organic milk in […]

Review: Palm Bay Spritz vodka coolers

Maybe I’m just too much of an Albertan for my own good, but when I want a refreshing adult beverage, I usually reach for a beer. I’ve tried the occasional cider or cooler here or there, but my overall knowledge of coolers is woefully lacking. How lacking? My cooler knowledge, on a scale of 1 […]

Since I’ve been known to enjoy the occasional cup of coffee (*cough* coffee addict *cough, cough*), the mocha cappuccino flavour seemed a decent way to test the Bolthouse waters. The […]

Review: Hardbite Creamy Coconut and Curry Oriental potato chips

I know I’ve been on a bit of a potato chip thing lately, so please forgive me. I just happen to really like chips, and the more curious the flavour the better. Hardbite chips, a product of Maple Ridge, B.C., Canada, were recommended to me by commenter (and wonderful uncle) Peter, who left a note […]

Review: Reese Peanut Butter Cup frozen dessert

This one sort of explains itself, doesn’t it? It’s Reese Peanut Butter Cups, mixed with ice cream (though it’s actually a frozen dessert, not ice cream). Simple. I first saw it at a grocery store a while back, but had enough willpower to avoid buying it. But my dad, well … he knows I love […]
