Stockyard Oatmeal Stout

This is my brother's favorite beer, but it took him some time to get used to it. Dark and chocolaty this is a real smooth beer. I love the stuff, but it can be bitter if you are too into sweets.

Heritage Peppermint Schnapps Liqueur

This is a sweet peppermint mint alcohol that is by nature off putting and hard to drink. I have it here with some hibiscus tea with which it works well.

If you like mint this stuff is a great buy but remember that it is not for everyone.

Red Rain Watermelon

There is nothing watermelon about these, but they do work as well as other Red Rain.

Farmer Boys Four Piece Hand Battered Fish Dinner

This is one of those days where reviewing things makes me depressed. At more than twenty five hundred Calories and twice that in salt, a hundred and eighty five milligrams of cholesterol, and twenty five grams of saturated fat this is a health nightmare. 

Then I had this for two meals because I had to take some of it home. Tastes great but will kill you.

Farmer Boys Colossal Onion Rings

I guess these are big for onion rings but their appeal ends there. These are bland and flavorless onion rings better left to those who want a lot of food with very little flavor.

North Woods Inn Cheese Bread

This stuff almost makes up for the fact that the food there tends to be little on a big plate. At North Woods Inn it's all about the fillers as it empties your wallet. This is some of the most involved bread I have had at a restaurant but also some of the most oily.

North Woods Inn Individual Salad

This is what you get when you order a lunch at North Woods Inn. You're also a lot more likely to get a male server in the morning and be disappointed in many other ways.

Don't think you did something for your health by eating this glob of dressing garnished with iceberg lettuce. Salad dressing is not a vegetable!

North Woods Inn Our Regular North Woods Sirloin Burger

So, my brother wanted to go to North Woods Inn, and I was too sick to eat. I figured that I would get me one of the things I had never had before and this was a joke on a plate. It looks nothing like a burger and tastes almost like nothing.

Never get this. Get just about anything else.

North Woods Inn Peanuts

One thing about North Woods In is that you can start off by eating peanuts so your not board waiting for your food. Then you toss the shells on the floor to give it the appearance of sawdust.

I have never fully understood how this can be legal or why anyone would want to do this, but it does give the place a novelty that I can get behind. 

They are just regular old peanuts so it's the novelty not the nut you are going for.

Kirkland Signature Tellicherry Black Pepper Grinder

If you ever had the experience of adding too much pepper to something this is the product for you. The pepper falls out in a steady stream and gets spread well leaving your food well seasoned.

I love this pepper grinder combination and this is the second one I've had.

Mediterranean Express Grill #12 Persian Koubideh

Well, most of this meal is buttered rice. You will have a hard time finishing it, but wash it down with a beer or you will be constipated.

Jersey Mike's Subs Grilled Pastrami Reuben

I hate the bread with the plastic in it that compacts once it gets made into a sandwich. After that, this is a really big sandwich. Yep, that's about all you can say about it.

Snapple Mango Madness

You can really taste the mango in this Snapple Mango Madness. The mango is not that big of a thing because Kiwi is listed as the third ingredient and Mango fifth. I guess that's where the madness part comes in.

I would say this has some advantages over coke but not many. Makes me want to bring my own water next time I go to a restaurant that doesn't have something better. 

Then I only got this because I was at a place, wanted a drink, and decided to get a review.

Tasty Goody Chinese Fast Food BBQ Pork

It was like most of the Chinese BBQ Pork you will eat in your life. I just can't say much about it. I would get it again, but I've had it a thousand times.

Tasty Goody Chinese Fast Food Broccoli Beef

It is every other Broccoli Beef you will ever have.

Tasty Goody Chinese Fast Food Orange Chicken

This is every orange chicken you will ever have. I love orange chicken so I loved this but it was again totally off the shelf.

Tasty Goody Chinese Fast Food Fried Rice

This is totally fried rice in a not very fried way. On the up side it is not too offensive so good job. It has no onions but it has to fried flavor to be honest.

Up & Up Antiseptic Mouthwash Original

The flavor of this is unpleasant but the color is one I proffer. I like this color because mouthwash this color can be used to clean the ear without leaving funny colors.

I know I shouldn't clean my ear with mouthwash, but I don't like stinky ears.

Anyway, this stuff works well so use if if you want but know that it will not be fun to use.

Snapple Lemon Tea

This tastes like tea from powder. I like the powdered Lipton but I can go mixing it myself for a lot less, I would not get this again.

Thai Table Restaurant Fried Banana

Not as sweet at as normal desert but still a very interesting experience. The fried coconut had none of the offensive texture of normal dried coconut.  I honestly enjoyed this, but I have to admit it was a very different experience for me so some of that could be novelty.

Thai Table Restaurant Five Spice Crispy Duck

This was a delight. The duck was very crispy and crunched as you bit into it, the steamed dumpling were on the bland side but that is what the sauce was for I think. Wonderful presentation as well.

It was a bit on the scant side for us fat Americans.

Thai Table Restaurant Crying Tiger

It's beef, not much else, sauce was okay but don't get this because you can get something better.

Thai Table Restaurant Thai Tea

Thai Tea is an orange colored drink that is almost an must have at any Thai restaurant. I have to say that my life is more complete from drinking it.

Frostie Blue Cream Soda

It's blue cream soda!
Once you get past the novelty it's like any other cream soda. If you like cream soda then you will like this, if not then give it a pass.

Kirkland Signature Atlantic Salmon

I liked this so much better before I read the label. After reading the label I'm upset. The added color bothers me and the fact that they added salt bothers me more.

Other than that this stuff taste wonderful and his high in protein. Richard is sad.

Equal Exchange Raisins Chilean Flame

I don't like raisins. I did like these, but I would point out that they have added oil. Great but expensive.

Costco Polish Sausage

Preheated, kept warm long before you buy it, and still much cheaper and likely better for you than most fast food.

Eat this rather than that burger that will kill you and you'll have a better day. However, it is not good for you so don't fool yourself.

Jolly Rancher Soda Cherry

When I saw the reactions to my review on Jolly Rancher Apple soda I knew I was going to buy the cherry. To be honest, it was great for being chemical stew.

Then I had it with whisky and everyone that had the whisky with me was happy but some said it was no stand in for RC cola. 

You should note that the serving size is smaller on this than normal soda. Drink in moderation!

Canon EOS 60D

I use two cameras in my work. The first is the camera on my cell phone and the second is my 60D. I got this unit because I could fold out the screen and use it as a monitor thus making it more versatile than other cameras. 

The 60D has now been discontinued but still runs for around six hundred busks so it is a solid unit. I like it, I have no regrets in buying this camera, but if you are going to buy one think about what you are using it for.

Olive Garden Andes Mint

So they took and Andes Mint and put an Olive Garden wrapper on it. Fool me, Fool me, just try to fool me.

Olive Garden Zoppoli

These come with two kinds of sauce, chocolate and raspberry, and reminds me of funnel cake. I love funnel cake so if this wasn't like 1200 Calories it would be great.
