Review: Hardbite Eat Your Parsnips chips

Would you pay twice as much for a vegetable chip made from a vegetable other than a potato? Looks like Canadian chip maker Hardbite is betting you will. The Pitch: From the back of the bag: “Not your mama’s parsnips. We know, parsnips have a bad rap – and it’s your mom’s fault. But this […]

Review: Lay’s Do Us a Flavour potato chips

When I started hunting for the four different Do Us a Flavour potato chip varieties from Lay’s a couple weeks ago, they were very hard to find, at least around Calgary.

Review: Kraft Peanut Butter with Honey

The first groundbreaking development for those who love pairing peanut butter and honey on their toast and sandwiches came with the invention and subsequent ubiquity of squeeze bottles, which made it so much easier to add honey and spread it on top of peanut butter without fear of contaminating the honey jar. How did our […]
