A great idea whose time had come.

Hot eats and cool treats! Dairy Queen’s got nothing on this vending machine.

Review: Fritos Wild and Mild Ranch Corn Chips Limited Edition

On a recent trip out to Arizona I was delighted to spot this bag in the aisle at Wal-Mart. It’s been about 20 years since I have seen ranch corn chips! I loved snacking on them in high school but they mysteriously disappeared and I haven’t seen them since. I snatched up a bag (which I regret, I should have picked up at least one more!)

Do you like Fritos? Do you like Cool Ranch Doritos? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, congratulations, you will like this chip. If the answer to BOTH questions is yes, your life is about to change forever. You can mark on the calender BRF and ARF (Before Ranch Fritos and After Ranch Fritos). They taste just like you hope they do: Cool Ranch seasoning on a Frito. It is quite mild, and the wildness comes in when you consider how awesome they taste.

I think these are only limited to Wal-Mart (if I’m wrong, someone let me know). So make haste and try them before I buy them all up. Fair warning.

Happy snacking!

Review: Slim Jim Monster Zesty Garlic Flavor

This has to be better than the Slim Jim Ragin’ BBQ Rib SnapStix Potato Snacks (http://snackor.tumblr.com/post/29639173774/review-slim-jim-ragin-bbq-rib-snapstix-potato-snacks), right?

It’s a MONSTER, alright. A huge Slim Jim. Really too much for one serving for one person, if you ask me. I split it with my brother to make it more manageable.

At first I thought that there was really no discernible garlic flavor, because it pretty much tasted like a regular Slim Jim “beef” stick. But then the garlic kicked in. I’m not a huge fan of garlic, so I am pleased to report that the flavor was not overwhelming. It was just enough to be a nice complement to the regular flavor you expect from a Slim Jim. I can’t really say it was better than the regular flavor, though, just…different. I won’t be seeking it out in the future, but I am not sorry that I tried it.

Feel free to try it yourself, especially if you are a garlic fan. Happy snacking!

McDonald's in the UK is taking your taste buds on a vacation!

I wish the McDonald’s here in the states would get with the program and bring these sandwiches here. I’m not sure how tasty they will be, but I just like trying new sandwiches. What do you think of these options?

Review: Krispy Kreme Limited Edition Glazed Pumpkin Pie

What is fall without pumpkin pie? I saw this treat at my local grocery store and I just had to put it in my cart and check it out. I am already a fan of Krispy Kreme dougnuts, and my love of pumpkin pie is well known. So when I saw this I knew it would be good! Let’s take a look at the inside…

Mmmmm. Look at the delicious pumpkin filling nestled in the classic krispy kreme doughnut crust. I only had half (I am on a diet, you know!) but the half I did have was quite delicious! The pumpkin flavor was very tasty, and the glazed pie crust was the perfect complement to it. 

If you like pumpkin pie you have to check this out! But hurry, it is only available for a limited time! Happy snacking!

Review: Orville Redenbacher’s Sharp White Cheddar Cheese Flavored Popcorn

I am a big fan of popcorn. I can wipe out a large bag of popcorn all by myself at the movie theater. I am not proud of that statement. It is just a fact. I am a popcorn junkie!

One of my favorite snack foods is Smartfood white cheddar popcorn. It has a great flavor, no popcorn hulls to break your teeth, and it is allegedly healthy when compared to Doritos or other snacks. But sometimes it is so hard to find at the convenience store! I don’t know if it is because the snack is so great and popular that it always quickly sells out, or if it is just not ordered in sufficient quantities at the stores where I shop, but it is almost always gone. Thus, I need to branch out to other brands from time to time to get my white cheddar popcorn fix.

Oddly enough, I found this snack at Lowe’s when I was buying a new refrigerator. I picked it up and gave it a try. Here is what the popcorn looks like.

Looks like white cheddar popcorn to me. And I am pleased to report that the flavor is also quite good. It is very comparable to Smartfood, which is great. Maybe not quite as flavorful, but still very good. It isn’t as good as movie popcorn, of course, but it is a whooooooooooole lot healthier. Try some of this today. And, please, don’t start buying up all of the Smartfood popcorn, because I will be disappointed if it becomes even harder to find. Thanks! Happy Snacking!

Kentucky Fried Chicken potato chips coming to Japan

KFC savory salt ginger fried chicken flavored potato chips are coming to Japan soon! I would love to try them, but my guess is the shipping cost will make that prohibitive. Oh Japan and your crazy food! Check the link from Kotaku for more information.

Happy snacking!

Wendy's is changing their logo!

I am not a big fan of change, so I am not thrilled with this news. I also have to say that I am not a huge fan of the new logo, but I will admit that maybe it is just the newness that is giving me pause. How about fixing some of your food offerings instead of working on your logo, Wendy’s? Yes, I know that this is the first step in a larger strategy to become “a five star restaurant at a three star price” or whatever. But if you want me all in and back on board, then you can start by bringing back perhaps the best fast food chicken sandwich that ever existed: the Mozzarella Chicken Supreme Sandwich. *Drool*…that Parmesan sauce…
