Tic Tac Mixers Cherry Cola

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. They somehow maintain the ring of familiarity of […]

Review: Awake caffeinated chocolate bar

Finally, at long last, a chocolate bar for the student cram session. Not only can you satisfy your snack-craving with an Awake chocolate bar, but you can also get a caffeine jolt equivalent to drinking about 3 cans (355 mL each) of Coke, thus saving valuable time (and washroom breaks). Or so I’d imagine. It’s […]

Review: Heinz Tomato Ketchup Blended with Balsamic Vinegar

Sometimes, food brand extensions are magic. For example, Honey Nut Cheerios are fantastic, but regular Cheerios do nothing for me. Other times, brand extensions are useless additions to a store’s shelf space, the kind of thing that seemed like a good idea at the time to the R&D and marketing types who created them. Witness […]

Review: Dutch Gourmet Honey Dijon Vinaigrette Potato Chips

I first spotted these new Dutch Gourmet potato chips at Safeway a few months ago, but managed to summon the willpower to keep myself from buying them. After all, did I really need another potato chip to be hooked on? I eventually caved, mostly because I love Old Dutch chips (it’s a childhood thing), but […]

Review: Dairy Milk Honey Roasted Cashews and Hazelnuts

My wonderful cousin sent me a text about a new series of chocolate bars from Dairy Milk that I had to check out. They had fanciful names like Honey Roasted Cashews and Hazelnuts, Pretzel and Peanut Butter, and Toasted Coconut and Cashews. Neat, right? The strangest part of this concept is that, in my mind, […]

Review: Chocolate Cheerios

Regular Cheerios do nothing for me. Honey Nut Cheerios are a childhood favourite. Apple Cinnamon Cheerios are that strange also-ran flavour that I’ve never had a concrete opinion on. But what about Chocolate Cheerios, the latest addition to the Cheerios family? The Pitch: “Naturally Flavoured,” and “Flavoured with Real Cocoa,” which smacks of wary-parent-reassurance. They […]
