Costco Cookies

 I have a problem with buying treats at Costco, and it can all be explained using their cookies as an example.

Put Some Fruit On Those Pebbles

If you think about the name "Fruity Pebbles" it's a really odd concept for a cereal. I also think it might be the only regularly updated version of Fred Flintsone in cartoons. It's weird that it appears that a cereal themed to a cartoon character might live longer than the cartoon itself. It's particularly strange because it's not like the Flintsones wasn't a popular cartoon show. At its time it was the most popular cartoon for adults, ever. In some ways it was the precursor to the Simpsons. But now we're here, where there are kids buying a candy bar themed to a cereal, for a popular cartoon series they may have never seen.

Find out what I thought of this fruity bar.

Old Man Christmas

It's always a little sad when you see a commercial that you remember and it's called "retro".

Toffee For Christmas

This candy made me think about traditional candies all over the world. I wonder what sweet treats people in Australia eat for Christmas. I know about the barbeque and the various desserts, but what about the sweet treats that are put in stockings and such. Also, what about the other parts of the world that celebrate Christmas, what do you give/get this time of year? I really should look into this and maybe write something up, maybe even a book.

Check out my latest review that's apparently traditional, but not for me.

A Christmas Before Lemons?

I always thought Coke and lemons went together, but apparently it wasn't always the case. I was also unaware that people used to decorate their trees with lemons.

Brownie Mayhem... or an Experiment, I'm Not Sure.

So I decided to make brownies (recipe here), then I started looking over my options as to what I could put into these brownies. Then I couldn't decide what to put into these brownies. Then I decided to try every ingredient I could to see which was better. This is why everything I eat turns into a spectacle.

Jelly Beans And Christmas

One thing I love about the candy industry lately is how each and every company is adjusting for each and every holiday. While I don't associate Christmas with jelly beans, Jelly Belly has managed to make the connection. Jelly Belly has the advantage in that they can pretty much make any flavour they like for just about any holiday. I do however have a great deal of fun walking the candy aisles of grocery stories right now looking at how candy companies are trying to blend in with the holidays.

Check out how well Jelly Belly did at blending into the the holiday season.

I've been posting some bonus holiday reviews lately, make sure to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to check them out.

Another Classic Christmas Candy Commercial

It's not as charming as last week's Hershey's Kiss Bell commercial, but I think this M&Ms commercial is still pretty cute.

A Weird Christmas Review

Many of you out there would probably argue that this Reese's Peanut Butter Cup has nothing to do with Christmas at all, and I'd agree. I don't see how the addition of peanut brittle makes a peanut butter cup holiday themed. The thing is, I found it at a Target in the Christmas section, in a Christmas display, and it has all kinds of green decorations all around it. Everything points to the idea that this peanut brittle peanut butter cup was meant to be sold at Christmas, except for the fact that as far as I know peanut brittle has no connection to Christmas at all.

Check out this very non-Christmas, Christmas review.

Kiss Commercial

Every year I post this commercial, because it still feels like the best Christmas candy commercial ever.
