Little Caesars Pizza : Classic Italian Sausage

Little Caesars Pizza : Classic Italian Sausage

I wouldn’t call this Pizza a Classic in the aesthetic sense. It’s good stuff, but it isn’t up there with Pepperoni; rather an occasional alternative when you have a taste for something different. It actually reminds me of a surrealistic version of the pizza they used to serve at lunch when I was in elementary school here in America.

Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars : Oats And Honey

Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars : Oats And Honey

I like the taste of these Granola Bars. Oats And Honey go well together. It’s the texture I have an issue with. They’re Crunchy as advertised, which is fine, but they’re also dry and messy. You’d be best off eating them outside, perhaps on a hiking trip where the ants will appreciate all the falling crumbs, with a bottle of water in hand.

Little Debbie Unicorn Cakes Ice Cream

Little Debbie Unicorn Cakes Ice Cream

Little Debbie’s Unicorn Cakes look, appropriately enough, like something a little girl would create. Whether this Ice Cream version; a collaboration with Hudsonville; is more or less fantastical is a matter of opinion, but I certainly prefer it. It’s a sweet treat with emphasis on the word “sweet”. The ingredients list includes regular sugar, powdered sugar, corn syrup and purple sprinkles.

Sunny Creek Broccoli Sprouts

Sunny Creek Broccoli Sprouts

Broccoli Sprouts, or baby broccoli, are a so-called Super Food, meaning they’re one of the healthiest you can eat. They’re “nature’s best source of” Sulforaphane, perhaps the safest way to fight or prevent cancer.

What I like about Sunny Creek’s, which you can find at North Carolina grocery stores, is that it’s ready to eat; no cooking or prepping. The taste is also tolerable; probably the best I can say for any plant sprout.

Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes Ice Cream

Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes Ice Cream

Christmas Tree Cakes may look like nothing more than glorified Twinkies, but they sure make good ice cream. This is actually both a Little Debbie and Hudsonville product. Whether or not it tastes the same as crumbling Tree Cakes in Vanilla ice cream is the question, but I’d guess not because I can’t really detect vanilla here. It’s just sweet and tasty.

Jack Link’s Tender Style Beef Steaks : Original

Jack Link's Tender Style Beef Steaks : Original

I appreciate the Tender Style; tough jerky can be a nuisance to eat; and smoke (barbecuesque) flavor. Still these Beef Steaks, which may as well be belt steaks by the looks of them, are nothing to write home about. That’s perhaps unless you’re stranded on an island or lost at sea, in which I imagine they’d be a godsend.
