Food Fight: “Meteor” dollar store chocolate bar vs. Mars

I have a few personal rules about dollar stores. While some things are worth picking up at the local dollar emporium – stickers, crafty things for kids, party junk, any other kind of junk – I have typically stayed the hell away from 1) anything that involves electricity, and 2) unless it’s a guaranteed brand […]

Review: Awake caffeinated chocolate bar

Finally, at long last, a chocolate bar for the student cram session.

It’s the lightest element in the concoction, which gains its heft by being weighed […]

Review: Whatchamacallit

The Look: Basic crème coloured packaging with logo/name in a chocolate-coloured starburst. Modern yet dated. Feels solid in my hand. While compact, it looks substantial enough to fill me up as a snack. The Pitch: “Made with chocolate, peanut flavoured crisps and caramel.” I like chocolate, caramel and peanuts, but rice crisps have always struck […]
