Core Organic Energy Tropical Berry

'Core Organic Energy' is the kind of thing you drink when you're fat like me and don't want to get fatter but you can't have artificial sweeteners. With only 35 Calories, real sugar, and a flavor that doesn't make me want to vomit I say this is okay stuff. 

Now their 'Tropical Berry' is unoffensive. I can't say that I love this stuff, but it works well in flavor. I mean, it's kind of like punch. I can't say I love it, but I know it's good for me.  

As for that Energy part, well, if you can't drink coffee this is good stuff. It will not replace a monster and will give you some gnarly burps.

Canada Dry Mandarin Orange

Canada Dry Mandarin Orange is just fine so long as you add your own orange as I did. Yes, go out their and freeze yourself some orange to put in your Canada Dry Mandarin Orange and it will taste like orange, but if you just drink it it will taste like nothing.

Hay, Canada, you forgot the orange!

Honey Kix

Honey Kix are not as good as normal Kix. They are passable but not that great, as I can't taste the honey at all. Why would you take something great and make something not so great out of it?

Modelo Negra

Modelo Negra is a dark thick beer best had on a cool sipping afternoon. It is slightly bitter, but not overly so. 

Again, these dark beers are best had in autumn and winter when the beer is to be sipped not gulped. This is good beer but you need to know what you want when you drink it.

Ono Hawaiian BBQ Seafood Mix

Ono Hawaiian BBQ "Seafood Mix" features white fish, shrimp, and chicken...how is it a seafood mix if it only has two kinds of seafood?

Well, again I can see how Ono hasn't gotten that big as the food is good but not great. I would recommend it for something different, but not as a common option.

Todd E English Himalayan Pink Salt

I always wanted to try pink salt, so when I ran into some at a discount store I just had to pick it up. Now that I've tried it I don't think all that much of pink salt. 

I'll grant that I haven't gone crazy with this stuff and used it in a lot of cooking, but as much as it tasted different it doesn't taste like much. I can't run out and say you should try it but if it comes at the right price it's a new experience.

iHope Ham and Egg Melt

iHope sells things that are not pancakes, and I was feeling full so I ordered one. This is a less expensive meal at the pancake house and though still terrible for you it won't make you feel like the Goodyear Blimp after eating it.  

I think this is the kind of thing you should put sauce on. I mean, I dunked mine in the ketchup, because it was so bland.

Belching Beaver Brewery Me So Honey Blonde Ale

Belching Beaver Brewery is really great at naming there beer. I saw this 'Me so Honey Blonde' and had to buy some. It's okay, I can't taste the honey. I can't say you need to buy this but it is good beer. 

If you come across some it's a great talking point for a party. I would get some folks together and pop in a copy of Full Metal Jacket then start a drinking game. 

Now that's a good time.

Firehouse Subs Hook and Ladder

I feel like I've reviewed this before. Well, every sandwich is it's own sandwich and you really should have more than one to get a good feel for what it's like. Don't feel your sandwich. That would be weird. 

I have never thought much of this sandwich but I just keep ordering it so it must be good. Or I'm crazy...you decide for yourself.

Firehouse Subs Salad

Firehouse Subs Salad is one of those things you go out and get because you know that Subway is less calories. Well, this is one of those salads that you better really like because the bell peppers are diced to small to pick out and that cheese is, um, more like stuff. 

I have to say that this salad is not for me. I mean, I knew I had to try it but this salad is particularly bad in terms of saladness. If you like bell peppers try this, but if you don't then give it a pass.

Peace Tea Razzleberry Tea

There is a dog wearing a Monster energy bandanna on my Razzleberry Tea. Peace Tea is made in the same place as Monster so I guess that's where he got it.

In any case, the Razzleberry is not a dominant flavor in this tea but as I have no idea what a Razzleberry tastes like I can't say if this is good or bad. 

I mean, this stuff just is...well, peace, bro, I'm sure it's better with ganja.

Art's Burgers Breakfast Burrito with Potatoes

Art's Burgers, in El Monte, California, has the option of adding Potatoes to a Breakfast Burrito if eggs just art enough heft for you. I have to say that if your going to have a Big John with all that meat you may want to space it out with those potatoes, add some salsa and have on of of the best breakfast burritos you can get in California.

Ono Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Katsu

Ono Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Katsu is like most Ono somethings with a lot of cabbage. I think their is like a half head of green cabbage going on there. 

In any case, I like the chicken and rice, but I never did like macaroni salad. If you eat the cabbage then you're looking at a better meal than most fast food places. 

So my assessment is eat it all or let it be. Well, you can leave the macaroni salad.

Venom Energy Black Cherry Kiwi

Venom Energy Black Cherry Kiwi is that drink that no one wants to pick in the cooler until it's the only thing left. Then you drink it and say, well, it's not that bad. 

I really think this is a monster in a different can and most Venom flavors are named after a snake. These on the other hand just have the flavor name and that tells us that someone goofed or ran out of ideas. 

So there you have it, works like a monster, tastes like you would expect.  

Art's Burgers Big John Breakfast Burrito

Art's Burgers "Big John" Breakfast Burrito is stuffed with ham, sausage and bacon. It is all the meats you can get together and I found it salty. 

Yeah, if you're a big meat eater this is for you, but for me I'm still going with the bacon option. It suits me best.

Jed's Hard Root Beer

Jed's Hard Root Beer us some real deal root beer with spirits to make it hard. Is it all that hard? Yeah, I guess. I can't say this was a dazzler but if you needed a drink and didn't have time to mix this was rather good.

It's not going to make you the talk of the party. This would be great to have if you want a hard root beer but don't want everyone drinking you dry and puking on the carpet.

Betty Baker Macaroni and Cheese Dinner

Betty Baker thinks that Macaroni and Cheese should be someones Dinner. Where this is not as sad as pop-tarts for dinner it's still rather sad. 

This discount Mac and Cheese is not as good as the Craft version that I grew up with. It's thinner and not as satisfying. Is it a big deal? Na, but this is only worthy of buying if it's cheaper than the name brand.

Hi-C Ecto Cooler

Ecto Cooler is that green slime fruit beverage associated with Ghostbusters. It's okay. I generally have this with vodka. I didn't think much of it, but I didn't dislike it.

Art's Burgers Breakfast Burrito with Salsa

If Art's Burgers, located in El Monte California,  Breakfast Burrito is to simple for you then you can order it with Salsa. I do not like Salsa so I'll leave it to other to say if this is good salsa but folks tell me it makes the burrito much better.

De Boles Organic Spaghetti Style Pasta

De Boles Organic Spaghetti Style Pasta tastes like pasta. It's some kind of health food, but it just tastes like pasta.

Blue Sky Natural Soda Cherry Vanilla Creme

Blue Sky Natural Soda Cherry Vanilla Creme is a mild flavored beverage with a little too much of odd flavors and not enough to make it strong. How do you even have cream soda that is clear? Clear cherry I get.

In any case, there are better flavors of Blue Sky out their so I would go with them.

Bunratty Meade

Bunratty Meade is not Meade at all but rather a white wine with honey. I would say it's a dry wine that needs breathing, odd in a white, and it's not a sweet drink for summer day thirst quenching. 

No, this has a strong flavor of honey but should be sipped rather than drank. This is a fine drink for sitting down and talking on a cooler day and keeping your mouth wet, but I wouldn't buy it again.

Art's Burgers Sausage Breakfast Burrito

Art's Burgers in El Monte California serves a good number of choices when it comes to breakfast burritos, and I think I'm almost half way through them. Well, the sausage burrito is made with a soft fatty sausage with a minimal amount of spice. You can ask for salsa in yours and I would unless you don't like salsa.

For me, I'm not a big fan of soft sausage. I cook mine until it's crisp but that takes longer and you just can't do that with folks waiting. Anyway, this is better than some options but still not the best.

Art's Burgers Chocolate Milk Shake

Art's Burgers, in El Monte California on Valley Blvd, makes a good deal of great things but the chocolate milk shake is just good. My brother was really into this, but I felt it could have used more chocolate. 

If could be that some of the other shakes are just to die for but the chocolate doesn't stand out.

Art's Burgers Breakfast Burrito with Ham

Art's Burgers Breakfast Burrito with Ham is another iteration o the the breakfast burrito that in the large size is filling. If you find yourself on Valley Blvd by the 10 Freeway in El Monte California and your a big fan of ham you can go and get one of these but remember that sausage and bacon options are available. 

I can say this was satisfying but I wouldn't call it better than a Burrito with bacon.

Art's Burgers Salsa

At Art's Burgers in El Monte, California you can get yourself salsa to put on things or dip your fries in. 

Look, I'm trying to fill a month of space with stuff from Art's Burgers and it's not cheap so I can review the salsa. I don't eat salsa, so no I can't, but my brother thought it was good.

Art's Burgers French Fries

Art's Burgers French Fries are just that, French Fries, and I can't put much thought into them. I mean, yeah, if you're not getting Chili Cheese Fries you can order these but I don't understand why you wouldn't get Chili Cheese Fries.

Art's Burgers add Bacon

There are few things in this world as perfect as a cheeseburger from Art's Burgers in El Monte California on Valley Blvd. I would say that a double cheeseburger is one of them. Tomato, lettuce, onion, and thousand island on a grilled bun. 

Well if that isn't enough for you then you can add bacon. You can add bacon to anything at Art's if you want. I have to say that adding bacon isn't that big of a thing as the burger is already as good as it needs to be, but if your one of those folks who needs more you can get more.

Art's Burgers Breakfast Burrito with Bacon

Of the three kinds of meat you can order on your Breakfast Burrito at Art's Burgers in El Monte California Bacon is the most associated with breakfast. 

Does it make a big difference? Yeah, I'd say it does. if you're looking to save money but you want to upgrade your burrito then go for the bacon.

Art's Burgers Onion Rings

The thing about Art's Burgers in El Monte California on Valley Blvd is that they sell out of onion rings and I can see why. These rings are made with sweet onions and were as I normally hate onion rings I really liked these. 

This is not to say that they are not improved with salsa or dipping sauce, but as onion rings go they are second to the best I've ever had.

The best rings I've ever had are at Maggie's Pub in Santa Fe Springs

Art's Burgers Vanilla Shake

A trip to Art's Burgers in El Monte California is not complete without their Boysenberry Shake, but I reviewed that already so this time I tried the Vanilla. 

I'd say this is great. I've had few better. I don't know what else to say.

Art's Burgers Large Vs Small Breakfast Burrito

Art's Burgers is a small burger joint in El Monte California and it sells two sizes of burrito for breakfast.. I guess I should have put something in the photo for perspective but one is made with two eggs and the other with four.

I have to say that the big burrito is often enough for me but if you want more you can get a small one to go with it. 

Art's is one of those little places you should go to because it helps out the little guy.  As for me, I'm trying to review everything on the menu.
