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 […]

Next Monday, May 23rd, marks the unofficial start of summer in Canada. It’s the May long weekend, celebrating both Victoria Day and the start of BBQ season. And what key condiment is crucial to a summer BBQ of burgers and hot dogs? Why ketchup, of course. I’ve been known to dabble in organic products, so […]

Food Fight: Cooked vs. Instant Chocolate Pudding

When I was a kid, cooked chocolate pudding was the norm. The process of cooking then cooling was all we knew, with dibs being called over who got – or avoided – the pudding skin that formed on the top as it set. Then instant pudding came along, and it rocked our schoolyard world. I […]
