Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Almonds Review

Seeking more of the good fats avoiding more of the bad fats, I took to these Blue Diamond Honwy Roasted Almonds occasionally over the past few weeks. They have some added sugar, honey, and a bit of salt.  Yet the sweetness and saltiness together, do not clash.  Like Chinese sweet and sour chicken, this particular flavor combo makes … Continue reading Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Almonds Review



Lay’s Stax Original Flavor Potato Crisps Review

I like these Lay’s Stax Original Flavor Potato Crisps.  Though this canned version of Lay’s classic potato chips is a much younger product than Pringles, the signature Lay’s potato flavor has been enjoyed for decades, in the bagged version. Lay’s duplicated that flavor very well in their Lay’s Stax canned potato chips offering, which I’m reviewing here. Lay’s Stax  … Continue reading Lay’s Stax Original Flavor Potato Crisps Review



Lay’s Stax Sour Cream & Onion Potato Crisps Review

We purchased a plastic tube of   Lay’s Stax Sour Cream & Onion Flavor Potato Crisps  a while back for evaluation.  The chips themselves resemble the original Lay’s Stax flavor in terms of color (a light potato yellow that passes a good bit of light), uniformity (near perfect hyperbolic paraboloid shapes), and stack-ability (although these cans stack better when stood vertically, … Continue reading Lay’s Stax Sour Cream & Onion Potato Crisps Review



Lay’s Stax Pizza Flavor Potato Chips Review

We found   Lay’s Stax Pizza Flavor Potato Chips   at Walmart, and fetched a couple of cans home to try.  They’re okay, though we’re not highly impressed.  Indeed, Lay’s does a great job mimicking the taste of frozen store-bought pizzas of the seventies and eighties in this product.  But then again, we never really liked frozen pizza, which is probably why we’re non … Continue reading Lay’s Stax Pizza Flavor Potato Chips Review



Pringles Light Sour Cream & Onion Potato Crisps Review

I bought some   Pringles Light Sour Cream & Onion Potato Crisps    last month for review.  The original flavor Pringles potato chips have been a personal favorite for nearly forty years.  But in recent times, Pringles has expanded its flavor lineup, and this lower calorie version of their sour cream and onion flavor is one of those newer incantations of an already-great … Continue reading Pringles Light Sour Cream & Onion Potato Crisps Review



Great Value Teriyaki Beef Jerky Review

Great Value Teriyaki Beef Jerky   I found at Walmart while seeking other beef snack products for review.  I’ve since tasted pieces from a jumbo-sized 6.2 ounce 176 grams resealable bag, and feel that this beef jerky, though not hot-tasting at all, is still quite good over all, especially given its somewhat cheaper price.  Its smoked-flavored beef strips are … Continue reading Great Value Teriyaki Beef Jerky Review



Great Value Sweet & Hot Beef Jerky Review

Great Value Sweet & Hot Beef Jerky   I bought at Walmart while gathering up other beef snack products for review.  I’ve since tasted pieces from a jumbo-sized 6.2 ounce 176 grams bag, and think this beef jerky is barely warm at first bite.  But the spice becomes more apparent a minute or two into chewing it.  … Continue reading Great Value Sweet & Hot Beef Jerky Review



Jack Link’s Sasquatch Original Angry Big Sticks Review

Jack Link’s Sasquatch Original Angry Big Sticks have appeared recently at my local Sheetz convenience store.  I’ve sampled a few of these very long beef sticks since.  These have slightly more meat than the monster-sized 1.94 ounce Slim Jims, I love the bigger, 2.2-ounce size, including this mild, original-flavored version.  The Sasquatch line appears to be … Continue reading Jack Link’s Sasquatch Original Angry Big Sticks Review



Jack Link’s Sasquatch Hot Furious Big Sticks Review

Jack Link’s Sasquatch Hot Furious Big Sticks   have appeared recently at my local convenience store.  I’ve tried a few of these since.  These have slightly more meat than the monster-sized 1.94 ounce Slim Jims, I love the bigger, 2.2-ounce size, including this hot-spiced version.  I believe that the Sasquatch line is intended to compete with Slim … Continue reading Jack Link’s Sasquatch Hot Furious Big Sticks Review



Great Value Original Beef Jerky Review

Great Value Original Beef Jerky   I came across at Walmart while rounding up other beef snack products for review.  I’ve since tasted a jumbo-sized 6.2 ounce 176 grams bag, and think this beef jerky is really good, especially given its somewhat cheaper price.  Its smoked beef strips are long, thick, and chewy, while bursting with that classic smokehouse … Continue reading Great Value Original Beef Jerky Review



Sweet Baby Ray’s Original Beef Jerky Review

Sweet Baby Ray’s Original Beef Jerky   I found while writing reviews for similar products.  I’ve since tested a 4-ounce bag, and think this beef jerky is okay.  Not overly impressed however.  While there’s nothing truly detestable about it, this beef jerky is a bit sweet for my taste.  However, I wouldn’t turn it down if hungry.  The sugary … Continue reading Sweet Baby Ray’s Original Beef Jerky Review

Jack Link’s Original Beef Sticks Review

Jack Link’s Originsl Beef Sticks   I noticed at the convenience store nearby years back, but generally avoided them because of how well I liked the Slim Jim beef sticks.  But man, was I depriving myself of a wonderful-tasting snack by prejudging.  Well, no more.  I recently brought home a couple of the super size 1.5 ounce … Continue reading Jack Link’s Original Beef Sticks Review



Jack Link’s Pepperoni Beef Sticks Review

Jack Link’s Pepperoni Beef Sticks   I noticed some time back.  Since I love eating pepperoni pizza and pepperoni by itself, I very much like this smaller, 0.8-ounce size of each beef stick.  While this is a highly processed, highly seasoned cured meat product, these pepperoni beef stix effectively derail hunger in afternoon workplaces, and are a great evening snack to savor when … Continue reading Jack Link’s Pepperoni Beef Sticks Review



Old Wisconsin Turkey Sticks Review

I sampled some   Old Wisconsin Turkey Sticks    today to review them.  Initial remarks: I like this much bigger, 1.5-ounce skinny turkey sausage.  While this is a highly processed, highly seasoned product, these turkey rods effectively stop hunger pangs while bailing that hay on the farm, and they’re a wonderful evening snack to munch when it’s too early to go to bed … Continue reading Old Wisconsin Turkey Sticks Review

Seeking more of the good fats avoiding more of the bad fats not to mention the lower salt content, I’ve snacked on these Blue Diamond Lightly Salted Almonds occasionally over the past couple years.

Looking for means to add more good fats to my daily food fare and to reduce the bad fats, I began eating these   Blue Diamond BOLD Habanero BBQ Almonds   here and there.  They’re chewy yet crispy with their rather salty and warm biased barbecue flavor. You cannot easily swallow these barbecu flavored nuts  without first and thoroughly chewing them up, and … Continue reading Blue Diamond BOLD Habanero BBQ Almonds Review



Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds Review

Looking for means to add more good fats to my daily food fare and to reduce the bad fats, I began eating these   Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds   now and then.  They’re snappy,  chewy, and rather hot with their distinctive horseradish-like, salty taste.  These almonds definitely clear the sinuses just like a teaspoon full of horseradish on the tongue in … Continue reading Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds Review
