Pop Tarts Gone Nutty Review
As a child, whenever someone asked me what I was going to do when I grew up, I never imagined that answer would be “review Pop Tarts and toys” but yet here we are. Actually I never ate “real” Pop Tarts as a kid. In fact, I still don’t. Back then it was because my family was poorer than I realized at the time and saving 56¢ on some toaster pastries just made fiscal sense. These days I don’t eat official Kellogg’s Pop Tarts because they just don’t have enough value for their cost. The generic Pop Tarts are thicker, have more filling and although less polished just have more meat on their bones. That is to say, I like my Pop Tarts to be less Kate Moss and more Kelly Brook

The only problem with the off brand Pop Tarts is that they never come up with cool flavors. Sure they have all the standards like cherry and strawberry, but you have to go to the house of Tony the Tiger to get the wacky stuff. Which brings us to today’s review… Someone has let a maniac loose at the toaster pastry factory and these Pop Tarts have “Gone Nutty”! Although I’m not a huge fan of chocolate or peanut butter, I’m well aware that the two go good together. This interesting taste combination lured me in to do something I swore a sacred vow to never do again, purchase some official Pop Tarts from Kellogg’s.

Right from the beginning, you can tell this is going to be something special. The box features an embossed Pop Tart on the package and inside instead of the traditional silver wrapper, we get gold! That’s right boys and girls, we’re livin’ the lifestyle of the rich and famous! Champagne wishes and Pop Tart dreams! Continue reading

Snickers Candy Review

One of the things you’ve likely noticed here on our 31 Days of Halloween is a fair amount of candy and “treat” reviews. The reason is rather simple, it’s the season of lots of new flavor candies and treats. Probably moreso than any other time of the year. Christmas brings in a fair amount too, but Halloween takes the proverbial cake.

Milky Way Caramel Apple Review

Thus far though, things have not exactly been that good. The Candy Corn M&Ms sucked and so did the nearly revolting Pumpkin Fruit Pie So can Milky Way bring us out of the abyss with their latest Halloween candy?

Caramel Apple Review

I am not actually a very big fan of Milky Way candy, as it’s basically the same as a Snickers but without the peanuts. I like more for my money, so I go with the Snickers more often than not. Oddly enough I like 3 Musketeers, so who knows what’s wrong with me. Anyway, the premise of “caramel apple” sounded intriguing.

JJ's Pumpkin Fruit Pie

It’s no secret that I love pumpkin flavored stuff and that I consider pumpkin a traditional fall flavor that ties into Halloween. Through previous Halloween seasons I’ve reviewed a ton of pumpkin snacks, like the Jamba Juice Pumpkin Smash, Pumpkin Pie Blizzard, Culver’s Pumpkin Pie Spice Shake, and even Pumpkin Pie Rice Krispie Treats. So it should come as no surprise that I decided to try my hand at tasting JJ’s Pumpkin Fruit Pie.

Even though I recently began eating healthier, the allure of a small fruit pie with pumpkin filling was too much to pass up. Obviously Hostess is the most famous brand of fruit pies, but JJ’s have been around for quite a while too. I can’t recall the last fruit pie I had prior to this one, but it’s probably been several years.

Fruit Pie Review

On the surface, this Pumpkin Pie appeared the same as any other fruit pie. I knew going in that a pumpkin pie without whipped cream of some sort, is already at a disadvantage but I figured the good folks at JJ’s had some sort of solution for this problem. I should mention that at 410 calories for one pie (only 130 calories less than a Big Mac), I was pretty disgusted before I even bit into this Special Edition pie.

Pumpkin Pie Review

And things did not get any better. This pie is gross. It seems to be filled with plain old pumpkin pie filling, with no real flavoring or added taste. In fact, it actually tastes much worse than regular pumpkin pie filling because of the added preservatives that allow it to remain “fresh” in that box. It was just absolutely dreadful.

I choked down a bite or two, but that was it. If a guy like me who loves pumpkin pie and various pumpkin products, can’t enjoy even a few bites of this pastry, you know it’s terrible. Even at less than a dollar, this fruit pie isn’t worth your time.

I will confess that it does say you can microwave it and perhaps that would make it taste better (with a big glob of Cool Whip!) but I’ve only ever eaten fruit pies straight out of the package and this one failed that test. This is some serious zombie food.

Halloween Jell-O Review

Is it wrong to not like Jell-O? I’m not really sure, because I haven’t come across too many people who don’t enjoy it, except myself. Who knows, some may even consider it Un-American. But, in the spirit of Halloween, and all those super holiday inspired goodies out there, I am experiencing, with you, how to make Jell-O Jigglers. Look, don’t consider me completely weird. I’ve made Jell-O before. I have just never actually made the Jigglers.

I bought this package at Wal-Mart for $2.98, and, was actually pretty excited about it, since it included not only the Jell-O, but the mold too. I like these kinds of all-in-one packages. It included:

Jell-O Jiggler Review

Grape Jell-O
Orange Jell-O
6 Figure Mold of Halloween Characters

Upon opening this, I could already tell there was going to be an issue. I’m not a rocket scientist or anything, but I’m pretty clever when it comes to measurements of food and what fits and what doesn’t. It was pretty apparent there was entirely too much Jell-O for these 6 molds. Continue reading

M&Ms White Chocolate Candy Corn Review

The 31 Days of Halloween is in full swing here at and today we’re taking a look at one of the most important parts of the season… CANDY!

I love candy, but about a month ago I started a pretty rigid diet and exercise plan, so every time I eat some sort of fattening candy here on the site, I’m doing it for you, the readers. One of my favorite Halloween candies is the old staple of the season, candy corn. I know a lot of people don’t like candy corn, but myself, I love it. I’m less of a fan of white chocolate, however.

M&Ms Mummy

When I saw that M&Ms had a new candy corn flavored treat, I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, this new product from M&Ms is more a trick than a treat. It’s labeled as “White Chocolate Candy Corn” but it doesn’t exactly say what that means. I assumed it meant that this was a combination of white chocolate and candy corn. You know, since that’s what the label says.

M&Ms White Chocolate Candy Corn

One of the first things I noticed when dumping out the contents, was a disproportionate number of orange M&Ms in comparison to the others. That reminds me of the very low number of dark red colored M&Ms I got during last Christmas season’s Cherry Cordial M&Ms.

When I opened the bag, I was greeted with the faint scent of candy corn. I got excited. This might be better off than I originally thought. Would some of the M&Ms be white chocolate flavored and the others be candy corn? Would they all be a mixture of the two flavors? I decided to bite into a white one first, to see what flavor the whites were.

M&Ms Candy Corn

The first thing I noticed was that the white ones taste like white chocolate. I pretty much expected that. The taste of white chocolate is pretty strong and I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate in general. However, I believe that when it’s tempered with other flavors, it can be quite nice. Since this piece was pure white chocolate, I figured the others would have the candy corn flavor.

M&Ms Candy Corn

So I bit into a yellow one. It was also plain white chocolate. So then I tried the orange, the rarest of the colors. Surely orange would come through for me, right?

Lex Luthor hates M&Ms

Nope, it’s also plain white chocolate. So where the hell is the CANDY CORN?!? I assume the candy corn is simply in “design” because these are the colors of candy corn. Totally weak and a complete cop out by M&Ms.

Of course this begs the question on where the faint scent of candy corn came from when I opened the bag. Was the smell sprayed into the bag? Was my subconscious projecting that scent into my mind because I wanted these to taste like candy corn? Was it because I had these resting in a grocery bag that had real candy corn in it? The world may never know.

But yeah, anyway these suck. Unless you don’t like candy corn and love white chocolate, then you’re in luck. But why even bother calling them candy corn, if they don’t taste like candy corn?! I hate that sort of marketing.
