Food Review Weekly #3

Here we go, another weekly roundup of all the best food reviews from our little blog carnival. This is just a small sampling of what each blog has to offer, most of these blogs are in my blogrolls, so I hope you’ll visit them.


  • The Healthy Snacks Blog: Lauren features VitaMuffin Deep Chocolate VitaTops. (Are muffin tops really just cakey-cookies?)

  • Snack Lounge: Abi tries Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Ginger Snaps and finds that she’d be proud to serve them to gluten free guests (and probably eat them as well).

  • The Impulsive Buy: Ace tries Pringles Extreme Screamin’ Dill Pickle. They’re like dry crunchy pickles, but not in a good way.

  • Heat Eat Review: Josth tries Lean Cuisine Chicken Philly Flatbread Melt. The elements actually tasted like, well, cheese & bread and has a medium spicy kick.

  • Lizabeth samples Borden Fat Free Sharp Cheese Singles. Not as disappointing as most fat free cheeses.
  • Drinks


  • Screaming Energy: Angie and Jason review OC Energy Insane XXX Energy Drink. Looks like the reviewers and the reader agree about this one.

  • 1 Wine Dude: Joe sips Banfi Rosso di Montalcino. He promises a 7 word review (in pictures even!) but gives readers more for their money!

  • Energy Drink Reviews: Energy Guru tries Opta Organic Berry Fusion Energy Drink. Perhaps an organic energy drink is possible after all.
  • Imbibable: Abi reviews Columbia Gorge Organic Apple Cider

  • Candy


  • ZOMG! Candy: Rosa tries the classic Annabelle’s Rocky Road. I’ve always loved the package on the Rocky Road line.
  • Candy Addict: Jamie samples the Cinnabon Cinnamon Pecan Clusters. I still wanna know what Makara cinnamon is.

  • Condiments


  • Hot Sauce Blog: Nick tries Fat Kid Sauces Mango Amore Habanero Hot Sauce. I figured peppers were masculine, but never really thought much about Mangoes.

    1. Yay - love reading all the food reviews out there, and I’ve decided to try 1 thing from the list every week. Wish it could be some candy :0) but I’m going with Columbia Gorge Organic Apple Cider from Imbibable.

      According to Jerilyn Brusseau, Makara us the Cinnabon brand name for Korintje cinnamon (cassia).
