Review: Lay’s Wavy Milk Chocolate Potato Chips

When most well-adjusted, liberty-loving North Americans think “chocolate chips,” it’s the classic cookie that comes to mind, not potato chips drenched in chocolate. And yet here we have Lay’s Wavy Milk Chocolate Covered Potato Chips, an idea that seems certain to have come from a skunk-scented apartment in the college part of town. More curious […]

Review: Cornish RB-Q Chips from Calgary Co-op

Since moving to Calgary nearly three years ago, I’ve acquired a soft spot for the Calgary Stampeders. While I find it hard to get worked up over sports in general, and I couldn’t explain the finer points of Canadian football to an American other than three obvious points – bigger fields, fewer downs and playoff […]

Review: Special K Popcorn Chips, Sweet & Salty Flavour

When I try to cut back on my calories during part of the day (saving up for a big meal later on, say), it’s often not hunger that gets to me. Instead, it’s a hankering for a specific flavour, something with a taste that scratches a food itch. Salt and sweet being two itches that […]

Review: Lay’s Do Us a Flavour potato chips

Even the dimmest of bulbs has little trouble reading between the lines of Peacock. (“Superliminal” comes to mind.) As Beyonce has Sasha Fierce, I […]

Last month, I wrote about a type of chips that was sort of interesting, but didn’t blow me out of the water. So many chips – especially new flavours – are lacking something in the taste department, and are promptly replaced by another flavour once the chip-buying public tries a dud once then never buys […]

Review: Reese Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Eggs are great, aren’t they? But you know what would be even better? Eggs with chocolate shells, so that you could eat the shells instead of throwing them away or composting them. And wait … you know what would be even more amazing? If instead of having yolks and egg whites inside, they were filled […]

Review: French Onion Soup from M&M

While NEAROF! often leans towards the sweet side of things, we’re not averse to an occasional detour into savoury country. And French onion soup? Well, that’s nice and savoury, if by savoury you mean full of salty goodness. This boxed cylinder of frozen soup, complete with cheese and croutons on top, comes from M&M Meat […]
