Cinnamon Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars

I’m generally a fan of Nature Valley’s crunchy granola bars. I switch between peanut butter, maple, and oats and honey periodically, but it’s often my go-to choice for an easy breakfast along with my morning coffee. Probably not the healthiest thing in the world to eat everyday, but it does the job of being easy to transport and tiding me over until lunch. In my attempt to save some money and buy in bulk, I was looking for these online and stumbled across the cinnamon variety. I’d never seen this…

Cadbury British Chocolate Bars

I’ve only been to the United Kingdom once; I went with my wife as part of our honeymoon. She had visited London before and told me about how amazing the chocolate is. I believed her, but just assumed it was “better.” Once we got there and I tried some, I realized “better” is not quite correct. Chocolate overseas almost isn’t the same product; it’s creamy and incredibly flavorful. By comparison, the chocolate we get in American candy bars is so very bland. I honestly didn’t think the difference would be…

Dr. Pepper Cream Soda

I’ll start this review with a caveat; I already love Dr. Pepper. I also generally like all of the major brands, including Coke, Pepsi, and the aforementioned Doctor. Dr. Pepper occasionally releases limited edition flavors, which in my experience are usually really excellent. One of the recent ones, Dark Berry Dr. Pepper, was absolutely incredible. I’m sort of sad that one is gone now. Recently, they released Dr. Pepper Cream Soda, so naturally I had to give that one a try. Guess what? It’s really excellent, so now I have…

Ice Breakers Cinnamon Mints

These mints are dangerous because it’s hard to eat just one or two. For some reason, cinnamon is a somewhat uncommon flavor for mints. The path that lead me to these Ice Breakers brand started with Tic Tacs; I had a random memory of a cinnamon-flavored Tic Tac that I couldn’t shake. I tried to find it online, but instead came across these from Ice Breakers. I had tried other Ice Breakers flavors in the past. They weren’t something I ever craved, but I do remember them as being fairly…

Portland Ketchup Company Organic Ketchup

I would recommend not ever trying this ketchup. I’ve always been a heavy ketchup user, and somewhat recently tried the Portland Ketchup Company version of the red stuff during a trip to Oregon. During the trip, I was absolutely amazed at how robust this ketchup is. I just didn’t know ketchup could have such an appealing flavor and consistency. It was really a condiment game-changer. Once we got home, I found myself disinterested in regular ketchup. “Why is this Heinz so liquidy and boring?!” I’d rant to anyone within earshot.…
