Was really cited for it, but meh splains it pretty well.
I was figuring it would be a hard candy like really big pop rocks or possibly zotz fizzy candy. Well although it was a cream soda flavored candy like substance, which is just vanilla, it failed to impress. They are like smarties, chalky pressed sugar candy with some zotz fizzy powder mixed in. Good thing I got 8 tins full 😉 The tin is kind of janky, but still kinda cool. For almost $3 a piece they better darn be.
I am figuring I will ship them out in the care packages I have ideas for, cuz I might not finish them all.
The creamy red birch beer is the bomb. They mix vanilla into the birch beer and the red is awesome. It is cane sugar, so you know it is good. Theresa likes the grape, but all the flavors are good I bet. Super Saver sells 4 or so kinds, but to get the creamy red you have to go to Ideal. (how many times am I gonna link to ideal this week?)
I picked up some sioux city birch beer and was hardly impressed. Not sure if it is the cane sugar or if Boylan’s is just a severely superior product. Defiantly worth the $1 to pick up a Boylans.
With sammiches you have to have chips. These rule. Sure it is only a potato chip, but this is a really good potato chip. Remember those pringles commercials about the grease from chips? Well it is true. That would be one thing I like about these, they are not very oily. Plus thick cut from huge potatoes, then you add the salt. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm……..
I kind of do not buy the whole “natural” thing, but they defiantly are a premium line of their snack products.
So after getting hooked on jones cane sugar cream soda I have been having a hankering for different soda’s. Over at SCS they were talking soda and I have started a quest. I heard that at some hispanic markets they have coke with the cane sugar. La Mexicana was mentioned. I stopped by a market on west O and picked up a coke in a bottle which said “sugar” so I hoped it was cane sugar, but then I saw the sticker which listed HFCS The bottle cap did say “gracias for participar” on the underside.
Ideal has a nice selection of different sodapops, do you know of any other places in this fine city that have a unique selection?
BTW: I drink diet dew at work. Warm.
Asked this over at SCS and it got some good comments.
Panda and penguin. I am sure a penguin would be greasy. Panda just so I could say “that was finger ling ling good”.
So T and I IM all day at work and we send links to each other. I sent her a link to these candies and she got them for me. She says it is payback for me getting here some screens for her new coffee maker, but I know it is just cuz she is so cool.
I just dont know what to think about this bacon combo…
