Gerber Prune

Gerber Prune

This Prune, which is actually a prune purée, looks like chocolate pudding. Unfortunately for the poor babies it’s created and marketed for, it doesn’t taste like it. It tastes, appropriately enough, like liquid raisins, which isn’t downright disgusting; I’m reluctantly able to finish the pack if only for the health benefits it provides; but close enough.

Libby’s Premium Mandarin Oranges

Libby's Premium Mandarin Oranges

The word Premium might go too far, but these Mandarin Oranges, which Libby’s official site suggests “add that extra kick to any fruit salad or leafy-green salad”; I prefer to eat them as they are; do taste good, especially cold out of the fridge. “They’re a far-out fruit straight out of the far east,” meaning China, in “light syrup”, meaning sugar water.

Casablanca’s Greatest Catch [ Traditional Sardines In Vegetable Oil ]

Casablanca's Greatest Catch [ Traditional Sardines In Vegetable Oil ]

You might think it’s a bar of soap from the beige box packaging. It’s the illustration on the front that’ll clue you in that there’s something fishy going on. Corny jokes aside, these sardines may indeed swim, rather flop and squirm, among the Greatest Catch.

They’re “wild caught” from The Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Morocco, and they actually taste good. I say “actually” because food this healthy usually doesn’t. The only ingredients listed are fish, sunflower oil; no Vegetable Oil, oddly enough; and salt.
