Reese Puffs Cereal Bar Review.

I like Reese puffs cereal and I thought I'd try out these bars. Sadly I didn't really like them, it was just a lot of peanut butter so this is just about personal taste but if you love peanut butter I'm sure you'll like these more than I did haha, I will stick to having the cereal on its own and I rate them 2.5/5.

Canon Powershot ELPH 180 Review.

Image may contain: camera

This is a review for the Canon Powershot ELPH 180 digital camera.

I was bothered this camera didn't come with an SD card so I had to purchase one on my own.

Upon getting the SD card I tried out taking photos in the house, I though found the quality to be pretty bad in any lighting that wasn't natural.

First here is a photo in very minimal dark lighting (early morning):

Here is a photo I took in less than natural lighting (day/evening):

Image may contain: dog and indoor

Then I took a photo in some more natural lighting and the quality turned out a lot nicer (sorry it's not as crisp as it could be, my hands shake):

Image may contain: cat and indoor

I then wanted to see what a photo would look like close up, so I took a photo of my eyes:

Image may contain: one or more people, eyeglasses and closeup

Lastly here is a photo with the flash on (I don't recommend pointing it at yourself LOL!):

The quality here was really good, it got a lot of close up detail and even showed off imperfections that most cameras do not.

I wasn't thrilled with this compared to my current photo taking device BUT I thought I'll wait and see how my photos turn out outdoors.

These photos blew me away, the quality outdoors with this camera surpassed my expectations and my initial thoughts on this camera:

Image may contain: sky and outdoor

Image may contain: indoor

Image may contain: stripes and outdoor

Image may contain: plant, tree, sky, house, table and outdoor

Image may contain: plant and outdoor

Image may contain: tree and outdoor

Again I apologize if any aren't as crisp as they should be, my hands shake a lot when I raise them to take a photo but that's of course not in relation to the camera and how well it works. I adore this last set of photos and I am very happy with my camera for photos.

Now moving onto video and video quality.

This is the video quality in unnatural dark yellow light and a glimpse of the audio quality:

Next is the quality in a lighter yellow room:

Next is the quality in a white lit room:

Next is the video and audio quality during the day with a more natural light:

Lastly here in the quality outdoors:

The only downsides to this camera is how small the screen is, the not so great video quality in darker lighting, the rather bad audio and how it performs in unnatural lighting in both video/photo form. I overall recommend this little digital camera for photos and video in natural/white lighting, I rate it a 4/5.

Update: I have charged it for the first time and it charges real fast, I'm talking like 1-3 hours, I didn't time it but this is a guess, I was expecting many hours or overnight as some things take to charge. I'm impressed and happy with this.

Mott's Fruitsations. Pear Apple Sauce Review.

This is a pear flavoured apple sauce and it had a bit of pear but the apple is still prominent. Overall it's pretty good but I don't know if I'd get it again as I prefer the apple, I rate it 3/5.

Reese's Pieces Peanut Review.

I like Reese's Pieces and I like peanuts but together they aren't great TO ME anyway. I would eat them again but I doubt I'd buy them again, I rate them 3/5.

Meiji. Yan Yan Review.

I didn't love the cracker sticks but they were alright, the strawberry cream was good though but definitely was artificial tasting. Overall I wasn't thrilled but it was cool to try for review and the sticks were so cute though, I rate them 3/5 but I didn't wanna say 3 nor 2.5.

White Fudge Covered Oreos Review.

I spotted these in the dollar store and I had to try them for review.

I don't love the white fudge taste wise and smell is like those baking candy melts which aren't that nice of a smell but it wasn't too bad overall but I don't think I'd be getting them again. I rate them 3/5 as I didn't wanna say 2.5 but 3 is a little pushing it personally.

Kinder. Country Chocolate Bar Review.

I like Kinder brand chocolates and I've never had this one so I thought I'd try it for review. Sorry I lost the photo of the inside of this bar but it looks just like the photo.

This chocolate is good of course but the bits were like a bad version of sugar crisp cereal meets a bad version of Rice Krispies cereal, I would not eat it again and I rate it 2.5/5.

Tim Hortons Chili Review.

This is my second "fast food" chili, I did a review on the Wendy's chili (search it on my blog) and this time I'm doing Tim Hortons chili. This chili has less beans so I’m happy but these beans are bigger. They have mushrooms added which I’m happy with. This chili has more meat  and is not spicy like Wendy’s. Flavour-wise it tastes like a cross between a soup and something you’d put in a tortilla like a taco meat mixture kinda, it overall tastes pretty good and I'd consider getting it again. I don't think I could compare the chili's because they are sure both chili but they are rather different. I rate it 4/5.

McDonald's. McGriddle Review.

I have to admit I had not had a McGriddle before, crazy I know lol but today I'm finally trying it for review.

To be honest each part was good but not together. This experience with the McGriddle was similar to other sweet breakfast sandwich's I've had from other restaurants; this was deja vu of the last time I drank, threw up and then tried to eat breakfast. I don't think I'd get it again but I do love the idea of each item; they were good. I rate it 3/5.

Amy's. Rice Mac and Cheese Review.

I have done two other Amy's reviews (search them on my blog) and this time I'm doing a gluten-free rice mac and cheese. There is one other mac and cheese that's not gluten-free.

This smells very rice and buttery. It tastes like white rice with buttery popcorn and cheese on it. It wasn't too bad for a gluten free option and I get why it cost so much but I wouldn't get it again.
I rate this dish 2.5/5. I didn't wanna give it such a low score but 3 was a bit high.

(To be honest, I don't even really like mac and cheese except the President's Choice white cheddar and KD spirals. (They have since changed the regular KD and it's bad now and I haven't recently had the spirals to see if that has too changed but likely it's bad now.)

White Chocolate Raspberry Macron Review. (The Sconery)

This is a white chocolate raspberry macron. Honestly out of all the macrons from The Sconery it was my least fav. Overall it was bad, I hated the flavour and it was rather floral or even soapy. I would not get it again I rate it 0/5.

S&F. Hazelnut Spread Duo Review.

I loved this hazelnut spread duo it's like a lighter Nutella meets marshmallow fluff and the chocolate isn't too overpowering. I'm happy I tried it out and I think it'll replace my Nutella purchases, I rate it 5/5.

126 Chinese Restaurant. Beef Lo Mein Review.

The last lo mein dish I had had thicker noodles so I was surprised by this dish as I wasn't sure what it would look like coming to me but besides that I really didn't like the flavour; it was off. I'm sad there was only a few pieces of meat and everything smelled funky. It was a little better once re-heated the following day but I would never get it again, I rate it 1.5/5.

Veryberry Cheerios Review.

I'm always into Cheerios and I love the original and honey nut but on the fence about the apple cinnamon and banana nut Cheerios and I'm on the fence about the apple cinnamon ones. I have not yet tried the chocolate ones but today I'm trying the limited edition veryberry Cheerios.

These smelled horrible upon opening the bag, it was like expired Pepto Bismol. Upon putting it in a bowl the smell was still like medicine but not as strong. Flavour wise this wasn't great it was like you soaked Cheerios in watery fruit punch. Upon adding the milk it made it easier to eat but still I wasn't thrilled. They are over-priced especially for me to dislike like them like this. I would not eat them or get them again, I rate them 1/5.
