I got a sausage breakfast sandwich on an biscuit. I didn't care for the biscuit to be honest, I normally don't as I find most biscuits dry and this one was dry. I did like the rest of it though, the egg, the cheese and the sausage. I would get it again but likely on either a bagel or English muffin. I rate it 3/5.
This is Subway's new steak mushroom melt and I was excited to try it out!
So, it was lackluster and there was a lot I was just meh about with this sub. There wasn't enough mayo but that's not anything to do with the sandwich itself you can always ask for more. The steak was so bland and dog food like, it lacked flavour. The mushrooms were just there and did nothing for the sandwich, also there was very few on there...I hate how they skimp on meats and important veggies, then charge so much just to add a little more. I was disappointed by this to be honest, it was such a flavourless and almost too dry sub. I would not get it again and I rate it 2.5/5.
This is my first time having strawberry milk that wasn't regular dairy milk. I have never really liked soy milk but I decided to try out strawberry to see if that would help how I feel about it.
It's a white colour with a tiny hint of pink. It smells amazing but the taste I'm indifferent about, the first sip was not good, the last sip was not good and the aftertaste was the worst part. I don't think I would get it again to be honest, it was fun to try out but that's it for me. I rate it 2.5/5. Not the worst thing I've had but I was not much a fan. I was hoping for more of a strawberry flavour, matching the smell. I also didn't like how it wasn't all that cold, compared to all the other liquids in my fridge...it just didn't want to chill.

So this is my first breakfast sandwich from A&W and I actually had them for dinner haha. I am loving the all day breakfast and this 2 for 5 deal going on. I decided to order one on a bun and one on an English muffin, so I can try them both out.
They are both good but I preferred the bun to the English muffin. I don't know what it was but the bun just really did it for me :D. I'm not a fan of yolk but I sucked it up for this sandwich, I would've preferred it just egg whites to be honest. But I would def get them again but I'm not sure if they are worth the usual price, because it's usually 5 for one...ouch but if they coupons I'm snatching them up! I want to go again for more, that's how much I liked them. I rate them 4/5.

To be honest this is my first time having a Monte Cristo sandwich. It's a ham and swiss fried sandwich but instead of just regular bread, they are slices of french toast.
This was okay, it wasn't as good as I was hoping. I ate it of course but I wouldn't get it again. I'm not sure exactly what I didn't like but I just didn't like it. I don't often dislike foods but I'm glad I still tried it out. It could've been the ham I didn't like or maybe the french toast but it was something just meh about this sandwich. Luckily it was filling and I felt for the cheap price it was fine. I rate it 2.5/5.

This is my second Kracie DIY kit and this one is a colourful chocolate kit, this one requires the microwave.
Upon opening the package this is what I got, three packets and a mold tray:
I cut the two mold halves, in half with scissors:
I pour the contents of the pink packet (colourful chocolate) into a bowl:
Then I pour the contents of the orange packet (cookie crumbs) into another bowl:
And finally I pour the contents of the brown packet (solid chocolate) into a third bowl:
Then I took all these little pieces and put an array of them in each of the A molds (I overused my little candies, you don't need to overfill like like this):
Then I put the tray into the microwave for 15 seconds:
Then I pulled them out of the microwave:
Then I put mold B on top of mold A:
I put the mold into the fridge for 10 minutes:
I pulled them out and poked the chocolates out of the mold:
This is the final product:
They tasted pretty good, I didn't care for the cookie crumbs though, so if I ever did this one again I would skip out on the cookie crumbs. I don't know if this was worth all the work, this took a hot minute to do but the experience was fun. I rate it 3/5.
So this is my first DIY kit, it's from the maker Kracie. This is the lollipop soda kit and some people have actually used their own lollipops for this kit but the picture suggests the spoon is fine.
This is what came in the package:
Three packets, a dish and a spoon. This dish has two bowl parts and the little triangle at the top to hold water.
The first package was opened and poured into the first bowl part:
I then broke off the triangle water cup and filled it with water, dumping it onto the powder in the bowl:
Then I mixed well:
I then decided to open packet 3, as it hold the candy and I poured them into the second bowl part (don't ask why I didn't just continue with part 2 then part 3 in order...I have no idea lol):
Then I poured the powder from the second packet, onto the mixture in the first bowl:
Then I mixed it all together:
After mixing I took a spoonful of the mixture and dunked it into the candy pieces:
And that's the final product, I realized I had too much candy on my spoon but it was fine. I then ate it, well....I didn't like it at all. I found the candy pieces too hard to eat and the candy mixture was tasting like laundry detergent....(don't eat tide pods....or any laundry pods.....any laundry products...just don't be stupid please) and I hated it.
I found this experience was fun but tasted awful, I rate this kit a 2/5.
- 2 teaspoons butter
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
- salt and pepper to taste
- Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cherry tomatoes, basil, and sugar. Cook for about 30 seconds, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Continue cooking for a few seconds more until the tomatoes have just started to blister.

This is the 60 second salad cutter, I purchased it for no more than 6 bucks on ebay. They sell for a lot more on their actual site but there was no way I was paying an arm and a leg (to me) for this.
So as the name suggests, it's supposed to cut salad in 60 seconds. You put the produce (fruits or veggies) into the bowl and you put the lid on it, turn it upside down, twist it to lock it and then you can cut along the lines, through the produce. You then pull up the bowl a bit to unlock it, you rotate the bowl so it'll click back in, the opposite direction. Once is has locked in the new position, you can cut your produce the other way. It is supposed to chop your items vertically then horizontally. Then once done, you unlock the bowl from the lid and turn it right side up, as you would a regular bowl. You pull the lid off and you now are supposed to have chopped produce for your salad, you can then dump the contents onto a plate or other bowl to consume.
So I tried out this bowl, I decided this time to try out a veggie salad (as I didn't have any fruits on hand).
Here is a photo of my veggies in the bowl, I used lettuce, tomato and cucumbers (you don't need to pre-cut the tomato, I just happened to have half a tomato on hand.):
Then I put the lid on and turned it up side down, locking it into place:
I cut along the lines, through the produce. I then unlocked the bowl, turned it horizontally and then locked it again; to cut along the lines:
After cutting, I unlocked the bowl and turned it right side up:
This is the finished salad. The lettuce cut well and the cucumbers were partly cut but the poor tomato was only cut once (it may have worked better with a whole tomato but I'm not sure), so overall this didn't chop my veggies as the Ad shows, obviously.
It wasn't a bad cut but I could've just done the tomato and cucumbers myself with better results but I am happy with how it cut the lettuce. Overall I rate it a 3.5/5, if you just wanna chop lettuce. It could work better with other veggies if you try them out, you never know.
Update: With second use, the veggies turned out a lot better but it still struggled to cut the cucumber. I love this thing though, it takes the work out of cutting all my produce in stages and despite the mediocre cuts, it makes for a good choppy salad that I will just end up eating anyway, I don't care TOO much about presentation or eating large chunks in my salads.
I have returned to do my fruit "salad", I am doing just strawberries and bananas as it's what I have on hand. So I washed the strawberries and cut the tops off each one, I was worried they wouldn't fit, so I just put in three. Then I added the banana, I have small ones (no plantains but just small bananas) and I added just one. I keep forgetting how big the bowl is but oh well, I didn't need multiple bananas or too many strawberries, I was just eating this alone.
Then I put the base on it and locked it into place, I then cut along the slits horizontally.
Then I unlocked the bowl from the base and rotated it, locking it back into place. I then cut along the slits vertically.
Then I unlocked the bowl and turned it upside down, pulling the base off. This is what the fruit looked like afterwards.
And I plated it.
The bananas sliced amazingly but didn't chop like the strawberries did and the strawberries were finely chopped with one or two large pieces and a few tiny slivers.
Overall I am happy with how it went, cutting my fruit. To be honest, I wish I had just cut them in one direction, not both directions to get them sliced how I wanted BUT it all depends on how fine you want them chopped. You can use these now cut fruit for anything: just to snack on, on top of ice cream, mixed in with yogurt, garnish your oatmeal or even used for smoothies.
Overall I think I had better results with fruit than I did with the vegetables. It's really all up to preference and how you want you produce to come out cut like.
After this fruit experiment I can say it worked well with these two fruits, you will have to experiment with other fruits like pineapple or grapes or cherries, whatever you may like in your fruit salad. I rate this 4.5/5, I would've given it a 5 but the bananas didn't chop just slice and the strawberries almost slivered and I found it not as usual to just snack on as is, would be a perfect size as a topping or garnish though.

It’s short but fat, almost too filled with filling! I love it! I need that in a wrap! The smell of it is amazing but the flavour isn’t as good as the smell. The flavour though wasn’t too bad, the after taste was the best part. I don’t know if I would get it again due to price BUT it was good enough to eat again if someone offered it to me. I rate it 3/5.
