Review: IOGO Probio Blackberry-Blueberry probiotic yogurt

The yogurt section of any large grocery store is more daunting than the wall of toothbrushes in the pharmacy. They’re all somehow yogurt, but every one claims to be different in some way, and invariably better than all the others. It’s the dairy-case equivalent of every striving, scrabbling rapper’s ghetto-dream assertions that they, truly, are […]

Review: Safeway Bakery Counter light fruitcake slice

Fruitcake doesn’t do anything for me. I think. See, I can’t say I’ve had all that much fruitcake in my life. Like many people, I tried it once or twice years ago, decided I didn’t like it, then neglected to try it again because I assumed I still didn’t like it. This is crazy, of […]

Review: Mariani Vanilla Flavoured Yogurt Raisins

I’ve been nearly tempted into buying these for over a year, as I keep seeing them near the grocery store produce section when I’m hunting for Craisins or dried blueberries. I finally buckled and bought a bag. I’m usually a fan of coated raisins – chocolate, yogurt and, yes, even carob – so I’ve got […]

Review: Toddler Mum-Mum Organic Strawberry Rice Biscuits

The Pitch: Features a “parent’s checklist” that includes: organic; great taste, […]

Review: Brookside Dark Chocolate Açai Blueberry candies

These candies are just so downright subversive, aren’t they? Take açai – a buzzy, health-food-store darling of a berry – and, instead of creating some sort of $7 meal replacement bar for hippies turned investment bankers, drench the hell out of the superfruit with dark chocolate. And instead of straight-up berries, process them into a […]

Review: Starbucks Refreshers

When I first heard about Starbucks Refreshers, I probably groaned. I can’t remember my exact response, though if I know myself, I probably lamented the concept as the latest in a moderately long line of transgressions that Starbucks has committed against coffee. And why not? Starbucks Refreshers are made with green coffee extract, and the […]

Review: Tic Tac Cherry and Passion Fruit

Tic Tacs are a strangely eccentric little candy. The signature compact boxes fit nicely in a purse (or man purse), and the flavours aren’t intense in the way other breath mints are. Pop a couple of Tic Tacs, and they’ll leave a nice taste in your mouth without leading others in the office elevator to […]

Review: Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi

When I reach for a low-cal beverage (other than water, naturally), I typically grab a bottle of Coke Zero. I prefer Coca-Cola to Pepsi, so translating that preference to the low-calorie cola world is logical enough. But I’m also one of those long-suffering Canadians who has a fondness for cherry colas, a terrible affliction given […]
