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 […]

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.

Review: Tic Tac Cherry and Passion Fruit

But I’m also one of those long-suffering Canadians who has a fondness for cherry colas, a terrible affliction given […]

Review: Lowney Cherry Blossom

These little chocolate-coated candied cherries have been a staple on Canadian chocolate-bar racks for decades. While other candies and chocolate bars have spent oodles of dough rebranding themselves for the new, more x-treem (shudder) generation, there’s something soothing about seeing a sweet treat that hasn’t bothered with 3-D type, gimmicky claims or fancy foil-plastic packaging.

Arbitrary: Some bubble-filled options for New Year’s Eve

When toasting the new year, the easy choice is a sparkling wine. It’s traditional, it’s a zazzy crowd-pleaser and it’s the simple thing to pick. But maybe others don’t like the whole champagne at midnight thing? Maybe they’d like another form of bubbly goodness? If you’re going to toast with beer, you’d might as well […]
