Dr. Pepper

What the hell is Dr. Pepper flavored like? I thought it was cherry until they came out with cherry and now I don't know. Grenadian may be. Anyway, that's not important. 

The thing is that Dr. Pepper is from a bygone era where things had funny names. I mean, think about it, does it taste like pepper to you? No, and it won't help you if your sick so why the Doctor part.

The whole thing started as a way to keep the 'pep' in your step, so good old Dr. Pepper is loaded with sugar and caffeine. Yes, kids, this is what passed for an energy drink back in the nineteen hundreds. 

At some point in your life you need to try this stuff.

The Habit Burger Grill Malted Shake Chocolate

The Habit Burger Grill Malted Shake Chocolate is 860 Calories and that's 40 more than a normal Chocolate Shake at The Habit.

After that, well, I wasn't too impressed. For the best shakes you're just not going here but it's better than the alien blood you get at some places I think.

That Habit Burger Grill Tempura Green Beans

That Habit Burger Grill 'Tempura Green Beans' are a low Cal option at 250 Calories over the french fries which are 440 Calories or the onion rings at 500 Calories.

As you can see the battering is on the thin side and these look little like the Tempura I would get at say Green Tokyo. All in all, I would get these again. It's not that they were great but they were as good as fries for less fat around my gut.

The Habit Burger Grill Santa Barbara Char

The Habit Burger Grill Santa Barbara Char tastes nothing like hipster. What does hipster taste like? Hmmm, old fish really. Anyway, I didn't fall in love with this, but it was worth eating. Not going to get another one.

If you're into sourdough then you should get one of these and if not it's not much better than a normal burger.

Rockdale Light

Rockdale Light lives up to it's name by being so light you hardly know you're drinking beer. I think I know folks who could drink this all day and never get drunk. Folks like me for example.

I have to be honest, I got this to make my fish taste better and it works really well for that, but it's beer for those who don't want beer.

The taste is unoffensive and the calories are less than soda. Drink accordingly.

Alpha Wolf Lemon

Alpha Wolf Lemon is vaguely refreshing but does very little to get my brain working as it thinks it does. It has an aftertaste like Lemon Heads and, well, it just kind of is.

I don't know, if you live off fast food then you need this, and if you don't then give it a pass.

Venom Energy Black Mamba

Venom Energy Black Mamba is named after the most deadly snake on land. It's Monster Energy, and I mean the regular green Monster. You would think that with a name like Black Mamba they would have kick or something. 

I don't know, but hay, cheap Monster.

Phin & Phebe's Vanilla Cinnamon Ice Cream

Phin & Phebe's Vanilla Cinnamon Ice Cream is one of the more delightful things I've had to review on this blog. Cinnamon is the dominant flavor and it stands out as an ice cream flavor that is very new to me. 

I'd say if you haven't tried this you're missing something.

Blue Sky Natural Soda Creamy Root Beer

Blue Sky Natural Soda Creamy Root Beer is another real sugar soda. These are more satisfying than the corn variety and the creamy root beer is no exception.  

I find this to be about as good as any name brand root beer. I have mine with vodka.

Millie's Restaurant & Bakery Fresh Fruit

Millie's Restaurant & Bakery Fresh Fruit is the side you get with your meal when you don't want to be a mountain of a man any more. It's about as good as it looks so you tell me if you think it's good.

Millie's Restaurant and Bakery Turkey Avocado Melt

Millie's Restaurant and Bakery Turkey Avocado Melt is a middle of the road sandwich. It could use more avocado and definitely some mustered.  

This is food for old people and not much else.

The Habit Burger Grill French Fries

The Habit Burger Grill French Fries are about average. With so many other things on the menu I don't even know why you would get these, but I will say they didn't disappoint me.

The Habit Burger Grill Charburger

The Habit Burger Grill 'Charburger' is the first thing on the menu and has no Zerg to be seen. You would think that a burger named after the home world of the Zerg from StarCraft would have a Zerg or two on it but no.

Other than that this is a good burger but not stellar.

IHop Hash Browns

Why can't I remember that Hash Brown is to words? Anyway, IHop Hash Browns are a cut square of potato so out of the pack that I long for the freshness of fast food versions. 

Look people, you're hash browns aren't supposed to stack up to what I would get at a burger place, because they are supposed to be made of potato and be fresher. This high school lunch line crap isn't worth my money.

IHop Red Velvet Pancakes

I know Red Velvet is just chocolate with food coloring, but I went and got IHop Red Velvet Pancakes because I know you want to know how they are.

Well, these aren't great. They need more chocolate, and they need more sweet to make them good. These pancakes are not so red, not so velvet, and not worth your money.

iHop Bacon

iHop Bacon is the kind of stuff you can crumble into bits. I don't know what to say about bacon, but I went and tried this and I'm getting a review out of it. I had most people at bacon anyway.

Punch by Knockout Energy

Punch by Knockout Energy is a Hawaiian punch flavored energy drink. If you like that flavor then go for it, and if not give it a pass.

I got these at a dollar store so it was cheap and did the job.

Subway Sandwiches Double Chocolate Chip Cookie

I know I'm running out of things to review at Subway because I'm down to the cookies but Subway Sandwiches Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are passable. You'd think a big fat guy like myself would be in love with these, but I'd just call them okay.

Give these a pass and eat something better.

Ocean Eclipse Salmon Filet

Ocean Eclipse Salmon Filet is a big piece of boneless fish. You'd think that would be a good thing but my brother has refused to ever eat this again. He ate the skin.

I can't say much about this fish. It's just fish, not good or bad, but just fish. It's not segmented like the picture shows. I can say that the cat's loved it, but me I just shrugged and finished what was on my plate.

Brisk Ice Tea

So my brother wanted to try Ice Tea with his whisky so we got this stuff. Brisk Ice Tea is the stuff we drank with Jack No. 1. If you don't know Jack No.1 is the Jack Daniel's  made by Jack Daniel himself back in that day. A formula that now you can only get as a collectors edition. That's right, I drank this tea with whisky that was meant to be placed on a shelf and looked at rather than be drank.

This is not to say there is anything wrong with Brisk Ice Tea. It get's the job done, but I would rather make my own ice tea. I like to know what goes into my body.

Anyway, this is about like any other ice tea you get that is already sweetened. If you like ice tea this will work for you.

Trader Joe's Belgian Endives White & Red

Trader Joe's Belgian Endives White & Red are, well, kind of like cabbage. Not as rugged as cabbage or as filling but that's what I can liken it to. As a vegetable this is just kind of there and it stands poorly to cooking. They can be eaten raw, and I figure that's the best way to have endives.  

I can't say you should go out and get these, but I can't say I dislike them.

Mountain Dew KickStart Orange Citrus

Mountain Dew KickStart Orange Citrus is kind of like Orange Crush only watered down. It's not all that functional in terms of keeping you awake. I will say that it's okay, not great, but okay. Have a Monster if you can afford one.

Subway Sandwiches Habanero Roasted Chicken Wrap

Subway Sandwiches Habanero Roasted Chicken Wrap is the last of the Subway Signature Wraps for me to try. It was okay.

I can say that the flavor of Habanero staid with me for a good half hour after I had this and that if you don't like the mildly annoying feeling a your mouth burning you should stay clear of this one. That said, it's just not that hot but more of a long lasting hot. 

I wouldn't get one of these again, but it could be your bag.  

Subway Sandwiches Savory Rotisserie-Style Chicken Caesar Wrap

Subway Sandwiches Savory Rotisserie-Style Chicken Caesar Wrap is so far the second best of the three wraps I've tried. It's a wide margin better over the turkey. I just don't like that turkey. 

That said, I've had two of these. They can get all over the place, but are a good wrap.

Subway Signature Wrap Steak Veracruz Warp

The folks at Subway have told me that the Steak Veracruz wrap is the most popular of the wraps currently offered by Subway. I agree, this wrap tastes like something as apposed to nothing like the turkey wrap.

These are good. Not like you need to have one, but if you're going to have a Subway Wrap this is the one for you.

Swagger Energy Drinks Chupacabra Orange Mango

The orange mango cinnamon flavor of Chupacabra by Swagger Energy Drinks is, well, disgusting. It works, but I would never say, I just want to drink one of those for the flavor. 

What did they do to make this stuff? May be stirred it with Chupacabra. That would explain a few things.

Jed's Hard Orange Cream

Jed's Hard Orange Cream is not as good as just orange cream soda and vodka. I mean, it's not bad so if you can get it at the right price then go for it, but if it's more than beer you can give it a pass.

Keebler Fudge Stripes Cookies Peppermint

Keebler Fudge Stripes Cookies Peppermint are more evidence that Keebler Elves are all fabulous. It's the red dots that give it away.

These are not good. I mean, they are okay, but they don't take to the coffee.

My brother loved them so much he ate a whole pack without stopping, but he is a human garbage disposal.

Galia melon

For those of you who don't know Galia comes from a Hebrew name meaning "god's wave". The Galia was developed in Israel and named after Dr. Zvi Karchi's daughter. 

These melons are sweet and fragrant, easy to grow, and keep well until cut.  I love these things and you can see here that I served this one with strawberries, grape nuts, and cottage cheese.

I get Galia Melon's whenever I see them because I love them so much.

Blue Sky Natural Soda Lemon Lime

Blue Sky Natural Soda Lemon Lime is something you reach for when you want to get drunk but be a hippy at the same time. What, you mean hippies don't care how they get drunk?! Okay, how about hipster? Is that right? Hipsters like real sugar with their vodka right?

Anyway, this is good soda and the real sugar will mean that you get more satisfaction from your drink. It goes great with spirits and is all around good stuff. 

The only negative is that they sell them in the old ringed six pack and that has to be cut to bits to protect wild life. Raise a glass and get me scissors.

Giant Eagle Corn Squares

Giant Eagle Corn Squares are a knock off of Corn Chex and very close to the real thing. I have never understood knock off cereal, but that's okay because I honestly liked this cereal. 

Score for the knock off.

Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur

Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur is almond milk Baileys so if you need a vegan option this is for you. Is this stuff good? You ever have a Baileys that wasn't? Yeah, this stuff is great.  

I will get this again.
