Review: Kirkland Signature Maple Syrup

Quantity changes everything. With five dollars in your pocket, every expense is carefully considered; with a couple hundred readily available, a $2 item is an easy impulse buy. Abundance and scarcity both change your perspective on the world, and things that never would have been previously considered – splurging on Champagne or clipping coupons, depending […]

Review: Sugarpova Flirty Sour gummy candy

“Sugarpova? Doesn’t that sound kind of like … who is it … Sharapova? Maria? That tennis player? There’s no way that could be …” (Picks up package of gummies on the drugstore shelf, reads the back.) “Well, what the hell. Isn’t that … strange.” I was initially confused by the whole idea of a candy […]

Review: Hazer Baba Turkish Delight

I feel silly saying this, but the I think the first time I tried real, honest-to-goodness Turkish delight (a.k.a. lokum) was around five years ago, at Edmonton’s Heritage Festival. I bought a small baggie full of jellied Turkish delight cubes at a pavilion that, I think, belonged to one of the “-stans.” I had no […]

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 […]

Others, me included, see it as a delicious variant, something to be celebrated and occasionally savoured. It’s sweet, it’s creamy, and I […]

Review: Orange Cocoa Camino chocolate bar

Part of the fun of having a site like this is getting tips from readers. Back when I wrote about Terry’s Chocolate Orange in December, commenter Darrell pointed me in the direction of several other orange-infused chocolate bars, including this lovely specimen from Cocoa Camino. See, Terry’s Chocolate Orange is great, but it’s not available […]

Review: New York Fries’ Butter Chicken Poutine

I’m going to go right ahead and call New York Fries’ Butter Chicken Poutine what it is: fusion food for the Canadian masses. So what is it? First, for our American friends: Poutine is a Quebecois fast-food delicacy that combines French fries, cheese curds and gravy. It’s a life-shortening concoction that’s slowly becoming a national […]

Review: So Delicious Chocolate Coconut Milk frozen dessert

As you scoop So Delicious Chocolate Coconut Milk frozen dessert out of the tub, it becomes apparent that it’s not a standard ice cream. Using an ice-cream scoop, it doesn’t want to curl around and stick together to form a pretty ball. It’s airy and flaky, for lack of a better word. In terms of […]
