85 C Bakery Cafe Iced Sea Salt Coffee Smoothie

85 C Bakery Cafe is a Japanese bakery offering all kinds of pastry and this Iced Sea Salt Coffee Smoothie  was all I tried. I'm kind of disappointed in myself. 

Now, you got to shake these things, and I didn't know. Got a blast of salt at the end that was kind of off putting. This was thinner than one would expect from a smoothie, but it tasted good up until the end.

Pho-Ology Vietnamese Restaurant Summer Rolls Sampler

My brother ordered the Summer Rolls Sampler appetizer as a meal at Pho-Ology Vietnamese Restaurant and he couldn't eat them. I'm not sure why, but he said the cucumber didn't agree with him. The strongest flavor was cilantro.

Now I can take or leave these because I've never been a fan of summer rolls but they are well made and rather interesting. Order this only if you have two at your table because you get two of each flavor.

Pho-Ology Vietnamese Restaurant Chicken Curry

Pho-Ology Vietnamese Restaurant's Chicken Curry is something of a milder curry with ample amounts of chicken and half a potato. It's a big potato. It also comes with rice.

This wasn't dazzling, but if you've never been introduced to curry this is a good place to start. The meat was very well cooked and came apart with a spoon. The curry sauce was thinner than what I'm normally find in curry restaurants.

If you want strong flavor this isn't it, but I found it palatable.

Pho-Ology Rocket Shrimp

Pho-Ology Rocket Shrimp is something of a new take on fried shrimp only instead of battering them you wrap them in rice paper. I have to say I liked these. I'm not sure I like them more than the more traditional American shrimp but they were something new.

All in all, if you have a small party and you go to Pho-Ology then get these because they're good. Pricy for what you get but good.

Carl's Jr. Breakfast Burger

If you toss hash brown on something it becomes a breakfast thing. That's kind of what is going on with this Carl's Jr. Breakfast Burger.

It also has bacon so that's kind of a breakfast thing as well. Still, if you want to have breakfast on a bun this is going to disappoint, and you still normally get fries with it so the hash brown are kind of redundant. 

All in all I have to say that I'm really middle of the road with this burger, so if you're not eating a burger to start with this is not going to be worth trying.  If you go to Carl's every now and then,  and don't have a go to, this is okay and unoffensive. 

I've eaten a few of these and I'll almost certainly have another, but I won't worry if I never have one for the rest of my life.

Nectar Creak 'Sting' Ginger Session Mead

Sting by Nectar Creek Mead is basically hard ginger beer. It is so ginger that it almost needs to be diluted in something else. I can't say that I'll be getting this again but if you are a big ginger addict, if you chew ginger root until the pain goes away, then this is for you.

Hannaford Instant Pudding Pistachio

Hannaford Instant Pudding Pistachio tastes like almond cookies. It has almond in it but no pistachio. I mean fail, tasty fail, but still fail.

IBC Cherry Limeade

Folks left the Lime out of the IBC Cherry Limeade and only put in the cherry. All I got was cherry soda. It was good for cherry soda just not what I was expecting.

Season Brand Black Capelin Caviar

The Capelin is not itself endangered, but it's capture can have impact on endangered sea life. So, keep that in mind when you buy Season Brand Black Capelin Caviar.

I got this at my local market and found it to be a very good deal so I figured I'd try Caviar. This tastes like the sea. By that I mean it's salty and tastes like dead fish. Why people eat this I just don't know.

Nectar Creek Honeycone - Hop Session Mead

Nectar Creek's Honeycone - Hop Session Mead gives you the impression of an IPA. I've never been an IPA fan so I have to say this put me off some, but I will say this stuff was different. 

I found it to be a strong flavored beverage that set me asking more about Mead. If you like strong beer you should try this stuff, but I need to put it out there that this is not for everyone.

Denny's Bacon Avocado Cheeseburger

When you need to stab your burger before you eat it that's just how to make a burger. I was so surprised as to what things were in this Denny's Bacon Avocado Cheeseburger.

All in all this was good eating but very bad for me. Now I want another one.

Denny's Cake Batter Milkshake

Denny's Cake Batter Milkshake is the definition of disappointment. It wasn't cold or thick and the fact that those hard candy things were poorly distributed made this less than appealing.

This is a vanilla milk shake with crud in it that didn't taste good.

Denny's Seasoned Fries

Well, if there is one thing that is very American it's bland food. Denny's Seasoned Fries are very American. I think they would have been better if seasoned but they weren't season so I don't know how to wrap my head around them.

El Monterey Egg, Sausage, Cheese & Potato Burritos

El Monterey Egg, Sausage, Cheese & Potato Burritos are nasty. I had one with under cooked potatoes and one that was just rotten. On the other hand, my brother ate a whole bag of these in like two days. 

I can't stand them, but he loved them.

Milk Chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Egg

'Milk Chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Egg' is a gargantuan four serving treat with enough in it to make for more than a normal meal. Me, I not only cut it in half but gave half to my brother who loved it but got sick.

In all honesty I can tell what most of the ingredients are so I feel okay about eating these but they aren't that great. Big let down compared to the smaller version.

Snickers Bunny

The Snickers Bunny was a thing I found on the discount rack after last Easter and figured 'I love snickers so why not try one of these?' The answer to that question is 'I'm a big fat slob and shouldn't eat chocolate'. 

Regardless, I got two of these and tried them. There are much like a Snickers Bar only larger and with thicker chocolate. I also noted that the caramel was thinner than normal a bit more gooey. 

These are rather good but I do have to point out that they have a small amount of Hydrogenated oil which I have said over and over again is the most likely to cause blockage of the arteries. 

Enjoy in moderation or look like me and die young.

Hershey's Solid Milk Chocolate Speedy Bunny

Hershey's Solid Milk Chocolate Speedy Bunny is a solid block of chocolate that tastes of wax and has a backstory involving eggs and princesses.

This bunny is no Snickers, but it is a chocolate bar. I will not buy this again but it was okay with coffee.

Media Noche Cuban Cuisine Buffet

Media Noche Cuban Cuisine Buffet is a salty offering of just about all the things you'll need for a healthy diet. Was it a total knockout? No, but you should drop in anyway because it's good.

Media Noche Cuban Cuisine Passion Fruit Nectar

Media Noche Cuban Cuisine Passion Fruit Nectar is a drink that you can get at Media Noche Cuban Cuisine in Covina. 

I like it, but it was kind of like mango nectar so it wasn't all that new to me. I mean, not bad, not totally new to me.

White Castle Original Sliders

White Castle Original Sliders are mini hamburgers that heat in 60 seconds. Well, the buns heat in 60 seconds, and the meat is still cold. I have to say that these are not that great.

I figure these have to be some kind of stoner food because I can't figure out why anyone would eat them otherwise. On the other hand you get all kind of onions on these so if you like onions you're in luck.

Kirkland Signature Vodka

Kirkland Signature Vodka(imported) is to the best of my knowledge a doppelganger for Gray Goose. I have never had Gray Goose so I can't say but it is a good buy being a vodka that I can take in shots. 

I would also say that this vodka pairs well with most drinks for the most part being undetectable. 

The one thing I dislike about this vodka is the over-sized bottle it comes in that will fit just about nowhere. If you want to keep this in the freezer you're out of luck or need a very large freezer.

Mountain Dew Baja Blast

Mountain Dew Baja Blast is most easily found at your local Taco Bell. It's not a great drink, but it's hard to place flavor is refreshing enough. If I were you, and stoned at two in the morning, I would give this a try. 

I would think that the main ingredient in making this good in smoking a good joint before having a sip. I wouldn't know because I don't smoke weed but I just guessing.

Curry House Shrimp

Curry House Shrimp comes with rice and onion rings. It's a modest sized meal for those of you who are not that hungry.  I figure it's on the good side for those of you who like shrimp but figure that you'll be hungry soon after eating it.

I mean, I don't even know if they have dessert at the Curry House as this was my first time going, but if you get this you may want to order one.

Curry House House Salad

Curry House's House Salad comes as your vegetable course of a good number of meals. It has cabbage and carrots to go with those greens and the dressing is unoffensive.

Salad is never going to be a big thing with me but you need to eat some of it every now and then to keep your health. If you get one of these make sure you eat it, because it's good for you.

Curry House Iced Coffee

Curry House's Iced Coffee comes unseasoned with cream and syrup for you to flavor as you see fit. I would recommend asking for a water to go along with this because you get no refills.

I found this drink rather charming  but the syrup found its way to the bottom of the glass. I will say that I liked this drink but I can't say I fell in love.

McDonald's Iced Coffee

McDonald's Iced crappy, I mean coffee, tastes like dirty water. There was almost no coffee flavor. I think I ordered a french vanilla in this case but to be honest it was just dirty water.

McDonald's Sauasge McGriddle Sandwich

McDonald's Sausage McGriddle Sandwich is a combination of elements that you should never eat on their own. Starch, sugar, fat, and salt will not keep you full long and these things are so sweet that you can't taste your ice coffee after eating one. 

These are totally addictive and terrible for you. If you have to eat them then try to have them with a lot of vegetables to balance them out.

Bison Organic Honey Basil

Bison Organic Honey Basil is one of those hippy beers that make you feel better for drinking them. Well, is this beer worth drinking?

Meh, I didn't taste any honey or basil when drinking this beer, and the flavor was on the bitter side. Not to say that it was undrinkable, but this is a bitter beer that you drink in cold weather because this is for sipping. 

On the other hand, it had a nice head to it, and the color was very pleasing. I'm not adding this to my buy list, but I'm not telling you not to drink it either.

Columbus Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast

Columbus Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast is not so seasoned. For that matter I went and tried this fresh out of the pack and it didn't taste all right. I had to grill it, and normally you don't have to do that with lunch meat. 

Another point is that it will rip when you try to take it out of the pack leaving you with torn lunch meat. I have to ask what kind of chicken this came from, but I think the answer is chickens because the chicken breast would make a turkey green with envy.  

Once you cook it it's okay but this meat creeps me out. 

Trader Joe's Original Coconut Creamer

Trader Joe's Original Coconut Creamer is a none dairy option for your morning coffee. It's as good as creamer, but if you were hoping for some more coconut this will simply not hit the spot.

As I have no reason not to drink creamer this stuff is not all that great for me. I would have liked this to be something new for my coffee, but it makes a great replacement for something old. If you don't like cow you can have nut.  

Over all, good product.

Yoshinoya Orange Chicken Bowl

Yoshinoya's Orange Chicken Bowl is a tangy take on the classic orange chicken and on the soft side. I can't say that I wanted much of the cabbage that came along with this but it was a good little meal.

I will point out that getting the nutrition fact on this is not all that easy so it's probably bad for me. Well, what isn't now days.
