short food + drink reviews

teas

Czar Nikolas II Nostalgia

i used to joke about this drink being nostalgic 15 years ago and now it is nostalgic. it tastes mostly like their normal black but has a flowery/strawberry taste

Czar Nikolas II Black

ryan can't stop drinking this

Romanov Tea Anastasia

so pretty, so rosy!

Tiesta Nutty Almond Cream

uh this is just honey bunches of oats with almonds. luckily i love honey bunches of oats with almonds.

Tiesta Blueberry Wild Child

i bought some "blueberry delight" at marketspice for a high price and then i found this which is almost exactly the same. good deal.

MarketSpice Huckleberry's Special Mix (PLU 8371)

big fan of this one. everyone asks me "whats this delicious tea you made?" whenever i make a pot of it

soda pops and spicy waters

root beer

this is the best pop. there are none better. stop looking. the other ones arent even worth drinking

"Clear American" spicy water

lots of flavor and not extremely carbonated! I do not like most other brands of spicy water because they just hurt to drink. i find that every walmart i visit has a different selection! i hope to try them all some day!

"Signature Select" spicy water

safeway has a lot of fun flavors and i think these are comparable to walmart's, but i cant figure out safeway's digital coupon system so i hate shopping there. these are usually on sale for $.50, if you can use the digital coupon.

hot sauce / seasonings

Texas Pete

its the perfect hot sauce. i love cowboys.

tony charonie's

it says "great on everything" and it's not lying

lowry's seasoning spice

put it on your cottage cheese. trust me.

Texas Pete "Cha!" Sriracha

it JUST tastes like sriracha. pass.

vegetables

asparagus

i celebrate asparagus season every day i can. bake at 400 for 30 min with olive oil and garlic salt to make "asparagus fries"

broccoli

now this is a good one. i love to eat it

zucchini

i cut mine into strips and season them with tony charonie's and grease and bake them for 30 min at 400 degrees. i tell myself they are french fries.

green onions

quite good!!!! lately ive started cutting some up with my breakfasts

sweet onions

i will eat these raw

tomatoes

i dont really like these. heirloom tomatoes are good, but every day store bought tomatoes kinda suck. cherry tomatoes are only good because they're fun to eat

cauliflower

never really got into this one. tastes good when you cook it in vinegar but what doesnt?

acorn squash

i never leave it in the oven long enough, but when i do, its very delicious

fruits

peaches

it doesnt get better than this

bosc pears

ugly colored pears taste best. forget the other varieties!

pineapple

im sure we all know the controversial question "does pinapple belong on pizza?" the real answer is it doesnt f*ckin matter because pineapple doesnt belongin existence.

milk and milk substitutes

milk

i buy whole milk a whole lot

chocolate soy milk

doesnt taste like chocomi but it sure is good

almond milk

i might as well put water in my cereal if this is my only option. waste of money

heavy whipping cream

now we're talking. i pour a little bit in my black tea and rooibos for a good time. pour it on your strawberries too!

half n half

offers no advantage over heavy cream other than price

zoi greek yogurt (traditional plain)

best greek yogurt ive found so far. i love the texture

Drunken Goat cheese

i refuse to believe there's a cheese better than this.

Brie

looks like mold, tastes like mold, yet i cant stop eating it

Tickler cheese

actually this one might be the best cheese. im not sure anymore

Chocolate

Seattle Chocolates - Rainy Day Espresso

it's delicious! their best coffee themed bar (that I've tried)

Seattle Chocolates - Pike Place Espresso

it reminds me of folgers

Seattle Chocolates Champagne Truffles

now how do you make a truffle that tastes like champagne? the answer is: this delcious chocolate truffle is filled with pop rocks. its awesome. highly recommend!!

Theo snickerdoodle cookie bites

extremely expensive for the small amount in the bag but they taste good if you find a coupon. very cinnamony.

Theo salted toffee bar

put one of these bad boys in my christmas stocking please. my favorite of the theo varieties! can't say I've tried a bad one though.

Peanut butter

Skippy natural

baseline peanut butter

Jif natural

Immediately I could taste the secret sugar! Molasses happens to be hiding in the ingredients.

Adam's crunchy

The difference between this and ground peanuts is the inclusion of salt and the texture. Crunchy feels like they made smooth peanut butter and then threw some peanut pieces on top.
