Krinos. Red Pepper and Feta Cheese Fillo Mini Rolls Review.

I was just moseying around the grocery store and these caught my eye. I like the idea of what they call hors d'oeuvres so I picked them up.

The photo suggests red pepper and jalapeno pepper and feta cheese. I thought by the jalapeno they would be spicy but wow they really weren't. I don't mean that from a white person can't handle spicy not spicy but I really mean it, not spicy. They were so unspicy I was under the impression there weren't any jalapeno's at all. 

But besides that they tasted pretty good, the first one tasted the best and all the others that followed tasted alright, I would eat them again if offered but I wouldn't buy them again, as they were a bit pricey for my cheap ass lol. I rate them 3/5.

Buono. Mochi-Ice Dessert Review.

This is vegan mochiice dessert in a coolmix. Here are the flavours:

I picked two to try out I believe mango and I think coconut.

I tried the white one first, again I think it's coconut but I'm not sure.

The texture of the outer part was odd kinda jelly like and the inside was like ice cream. It lacked flavour but it was light and interesting to eat, the more I ate it the more I thought coconut but I'm still not sure haha. I wasn't crazy about it but it was cool to try out. I rate it 3/5.

The second one was likely mango.

This one had a lot of flavour, compared to the other one. I'm pretty sure mango haha. The texture was the same but I enjoyed this one more. The outer part I'm not crazy about but it's refreshing and tasty inside. I would eat it again, I rate it 3.5/5.

I share this box so I don't know what flavours are left or how many are left, I think one of the remaining flavours is black sesame. I may or may not do another review, we will see. Overall they were good for review but I wasn't crazy about it as a whole, so I don't know if I'd buy it again, the coolmix anyway. I would consider the boxes with single flavours, like the strawberry I would wanna try since I didn't get to try it this time.

Second Macron Review. (The Sconery)

I told myself I wasn't going to do another macron review (search my blog for macron) but I had the chance to check out all the flavours this one bakery had and I decided to grab all the ones I'd maybe like and wanted to do them for review after trying them. There was only one other flavour I wanted but couldn't get due to selling out and that was the raspberry macron.

This time I got cotton candy, vanilla and birthday cake macrons.

The first one I tried was the vanilla one.

The vanilla macron was DELICIOUS! I loved it honestly, I was nervous because most vanilla flavoured foods lack flavour but this didn't, I was really happy with it and glad I picked it up. I rate it 4.5/5.

The second flavour I tried was birthday cake.

The birthday cake macron was good too. It did in fact taste of birthday cake and I would consider getting it again, I rate it 4/5.

Lastly I tried the cotton candy macron.

So the cotton candy macron was actually a little stale by the time I got to eating it, I know negligent of me BUT I still ate it. Besides the weird texture of being stale the flavour was good, not the greatest flavour but still tasty, I rate it 3.5/5.

Zachary. Orange Thin Mints Review.

I'm on and off about chocolate with orange but I always like trying new things so why not.

The first few bites were off and I thought I wouldn't like them but the more I ate, the more I liked them and I now find them pretty good. I don't know if I would buy them again but I would eat them if offered. I rate them 3/5.

Kashi Joi. Cranberry, Coconut and Almond Bar Review.

I have tried two other Kashi Joi bars (search Kashi on my blog) so I was excited to try another.

I'm indifferent about cranberries but I do like coconut and almonds. This bar though was not good, something about it tasted very lemony and it made the whole bar so bitter to me, I gave it away and I would not eat it again. I rate it 1/5 because the other ingredients weren't bad but the bitter was overpowering.

Frank, Feels Stuffed. Turkey Stuffing Chips Review.

I'm drawn in by cute and quirky packaging on food and when I saw these chips, the bag of course caught my eye and I wanted to do do them for review.

These turkey stuffing chip tastes exactly like turkey, stuffing and gravy. They aren't as good as the hot meal of course but they are addicting, I couldn't stop eating them and I didn't know why haha. I don't know if I would get them again but I'd eat them if offered. I rate them 3/5.

Grain Harvest. Apple Cinnamon Pretzel Review.

I love going to Grain Harvest, especially when they pop up at the market. This weekend I did go to the market and I normally just grab a plain pretzel, hot and delicious but this time I was thinking I'd try out an apple cinnamon one. They also have pretzel melts, kinda like pizzas that I want to review down the road as well.

So this pretzel was not good, sadly so. I hated the flavour, it tasted weirdly raw like raw apple and cinnamon flavours. I didn't even finish this pretzel, I gave it away and that's not often I don't finish something. I would not get this again and I rate it 0/5.

Chef Mark's Hakka Style Shanghai Chicken Meal Kit Review.

This meal kit caught my eye in the grocery store, I have not seen meal kits before and sure it was a little pricey at 8 bucks I felt maybe it would be worth the try.

This is all that came in the box: rice, chicken, sauce and veggies.

It was a pretty easy step by step prep and cook.

The rice was to be heated last but it came out in such a huge chunk that was hard to break up in order to heat properly. The serving of this meal was rather small it would be good for one person, not two people like I was feeding.

This was the amount I ended up with, as I mentioned I was sharing it. 

I felt the flavours weren't great, I wasn't crazy about the sauce and I wanted nicer rice. I would pay extra for better rice, different sauce and a bigger portion. I want to try out the other dishes that these meal kits came in but at the same time it was a bit pricey for this small serving. I guess it is a good equivalent to a frozen meal for one for a bit more but I probably would've preferred a frozen meal to this particular dish, maybe one of the others I'd like more. I would not purchase this one again and I rate it 2.5/5 I liked the idea of it and most of the ingredients but the sauce threw it off for me, as well as the tiny serving size.

Vegan Gummy Strawberries Review.

I pop into Winner's and I always wanna grab all the snacks by the cash, this time I did impulse buy these vegan gummy strawberries.

I'm not vegan but I love food, so I'd eat vegan and non vegan foods. These are of course a very soft chew as it doesn't have gelatin in them, they taste just alright. I mean they are a good alternative to those who can't/don't eat gelatin. I don't think I would buy them again and I rate them 2.5/5 I wanted to say 3 but I couldn't.

Cafe Joy. Ham & Cheese Breakfast Sandwich and Banana Bread Review.

This was my first time at Cafe Joy, I have passed it a few times but never went in. I needed somewhere to stop for lunch and it caught my eye as I passed it again haha.

I ordered the ham and cheese breakfast sandwich and a piece of banana bread. I was offered my banana bread to be warmed but I took it to go.

The sandwich was handmade and made with love, it was DELICIOUS! This was the best ham and cheese sandwich I've ever had! I sat in the cafe to eat it and it was just a lovely experience, as the staff  there were also so kind to me. I would def get the sandwich again, I rate it 5/5.

The banana bread was a little cold in temp as it was served chilled. The crust I wasn't crazy about but the rest of the bread was really good. It's not the best banana bread I've had but it was a good one for sure, I would consider getting it again if I'm craving some banana bread when I'm there next and I rate it 4/5.

Mary Brown's. Big Mary and Potato Wedges Review.

I had been to Mary Brown's once before to try their potato wedges but this was over 5 years ago.

I finally went again, I wanted to try out their wedges again and try out the Big Mary chicken sandwich.

I'm always open to trying foods I haven't before but this was a horrible experience. The wedges are a lot worse than I'm tryin to remember from before and the Big Mary was BAD. Both items left a bad taste in my mouth and I struggled to even finish the sandwich, the wedges I gave away. I heard they have good dessert (this little cinnamon bite things, I don't recall their name) but I would never go again for their wedges and chicken. I rate the wedges 0/5 and the Big Mary 1.5/5 as the items on the sandwich were fine but the chicken ruined it for me.

Tim Hortons. Mini Eggs Donut Review.

I had no idea about this donut until I saw it in store when they didn't have what I planned to order, this was an impulse buy but good for review.

This donut was pretty good actually, I love Mini Eggs and I do like a good vanilla dip donut, I mean of course I'm not crazy about too many sprinkles as they are the food version of glitter to me haha but it was still pretty cool. I would consider it again but it wasn't my fav donut of course. I rate it 3.5/5.

Tim Hortons Pancakes Review.

Tim Hortons now has pancakes, I was excited to try them out as I love pancakes. I have tried the A&W and McDonald's pancakes both are pretty good for fast food pancakes.

These though were AWFUL. The first pancake tasted like bubble gum and the other two just tasted so sad, I'm glad they only costed me 4 bucks for them but still a waste of money. I'm glad I tried them for review but I will not be getting them again, I rate them 0/5.

President's Choice. General Tao's Chicken Review.

I have tried a few President's Choice products (search it on my blog) and I thought I'd try out this general tao's chicken as I normally like this dish when I go out to eat.

The rice was alright and the chicken was alright too but the sauce and spice amount was good to me, I just wish there was more flavour to the rice and more pieces of chicken. I would eat it again but I don't know if I would buy it again. I rate it 3/5.

Magic Bullet Review.

So I bought my first blender, a Magic Bullet and I know these are OLD and I'm late to the party but here I am haha.

I bought it to make smoothies but was blown away but what all I could do with it. I thought for this review we would go in depth about my smoothie making as that's what I first did with it.

This is what the Magic Bullet looked like out of the box, it came with a million cups and different lids. It's small in size and would fit nicely even in my luggage if I were to travel with it. Also here are photos of all 17 pieces.

I was over the moon about the recipe book that came with the Magic Bullet, this is how we picked out our first smoothie recipe.

I did not have ice ready for the smoothies but we followed the recipe otherwise.

I made three different smoothies with this one recipe, you can add your choice of frozen fruit beside the fresh banana) and your choice of liquids (orange juice or any kind of milk).

I failed to take a photo with the full cup on the base but this is one of the smoothie's prior to blending.

This smoothie had raspberries, strawberries, bananas and orange juice.

After 20 seconds of continuous blending this is how the smoothie turned out (it would be colder and a different texture with the ice but that's okay too lol).

This was the second smoothie was raspberries, strawberries, bananas and lactose free milk.

And the final smoothie was stawberries, bananas and lactose free milk.

I had wished for ice but I didn't have any ready for smoothies but I love how you can do so many things with this recipe, adding any fruits and any liquids you wish. The only downfall of this recipe was that the recipe only made half the cup, so you could always just double the ingredients for a fuller cup. 

I did jump a few times using the blender, it was LOUD but it was powerful, it did an amazing job at blending I found very very minimal cold chunks maybe one or two in my smoothie but you can always just blend it longer if need be. The booklet says not to blend longer than a minute for any recipe or reason, so keep that in mind.

I absolutely love my magic bullet and since I paid not even 60 bucks for it, I'm thrilled to have it and I wish I had gotten one sooner haha. I would recommend this for sure, it makes endless recipes and even grates cheeses or grinds coffee beans.
