Review: Reese Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread

In my early years, I grew up in a household where granola was made at home, sugar was largely shunned and healthy homemade meals were the rule, not the exception. Until I started elementary school, I assumed this was normal, and that all other parents cared equally about nutrition and eating right. Imagine my wonder […]

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: Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations Jelly Popping Candy

It’s not every day you find a chocolate bar with “Carbon Dioxide” listed in the ingredients. As Dairy Milk continues in their frantic mission to add just about everything imaginable into a chocolate bar – toffee bits, cookie dough, pretzel chunks, cashews, coconut, etc. – this Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations Jelly Popping Candy bar stood […]

Review: Vanilla Shake M&M’s from Australia

Over the years, I’ve tried M&M’s in all sorts of flavours and formats. Plain, peanut, peanut butter, pretzel, mint, coconut … . A few weeks ago, I even sampled some orange-flavoured M&M’s from Australia. This week, we’re back to another M&M’s flavour from that kangaroo-infested corner of the globe. Vanilla Shake, they say? Interesting. I’m […]

The U.S. regularly gets these curious variants, but I’d assumed Australia was in the same boat as Canada with stuff like this. Apparently not. […]

Review: Popchips Katy’s Kettle Corn Chips

I’m kind of fascinated by Katy Perry. She’s this marvellous contradiction, a gospel-raised chanteuse who rose to mainstream prominence through a risqué image and songs that leave nothing to the imagination. Even the dimmest of bulbs has little trouble reading between the lines of Peacock. (“Superliminal” comes to mind.) As Beyonce has Sasha Fierce, I […]

Review: Sconza Lemoncello Almonds

I found these Sconza Lemoncello Almonds at a London Drugs in Calgary around Christmas time, but it’s taken me a while to get around to reviewing them. Now that I’ve tried these little yellow bundles of sweet, creamy, lemony joy, I wish I’d sampled them sooner. The Pitch: “Roasted almonds covered in white chocolate and […]

Review: Rubicon Guava Juice

My first experience with guava juice was in Hawaii as a teen. While it didn’t do much for me at the time, I’ve come around to the taste. These days, I love it. One sip of guava juice takes me back to a Honolulu lanai, reading the Sunday New York Times between sips of the […]
