Red Bull. The Summer Edition 2 Review.

I've not done many reviews for this brand (search them on my blog) but today I'm trying the apricot strawberry flavour. Note I have done a summer version before that was a dragon fruit flavour, this year it's different.

At first this was delicious and smelled lovely but it was quick to change in taste, it was gross quick. To describe the initial taste it was fruity and sweet, a lot of fruits and candy, the after taste was something so odd, I can't describe it but it was off. I'm sad it didn't turn out but still was fine to try for review. I wouldn't get it again and I rate it 1.5/5.

Magnum. Strawberries and Cream Ice Cream Bar Review.


This is my first Magnum bar, I haven't had any thus far because most of them are very chocolate heavy and I'm picky about chocolate but I saw this strawberries and cream bar and I was excited to try it for review.

The ice cream is divine, very flavourful and lovely texture. The white chocolate shell though I wasn't too keen on but I knew this going into it, as I'm not a fan much of white chocolate. If this bar had a milk chocolate shell that would've been the best! I would eat this again though but I don't know if I'd buy myself one again and I rate it 3.5/5, I wanted to say a 4 so bad but the white chocolate makes up for so much of this bar but just know I was leaning heavy to a 4.

The Bingsu. Strawberry Bingsu Review.


I've been to this restaurant once before (search it on my blog) and today I'm doing a review for the strawberry bingsu.

For those that haven't heard of bingsu, it's a Korean shaved "ice" dessert made of a frozen block of milk or cream that they grate finely and they become what they call "snowflakes". The texture is like very fine snow, when spooned it's like ice cream. Today I ordered the strawberry one, this is made with "snowflakes" and condensed milk and topped with strawberries, almond slices, strawberry sauce and ice cream.

It's delicious, each bite was so good! I have to say, if I hadn't prior but bingsu is very cold, often I would be shocked with chill and had brain freeze a few times, much colder than regular desserts. I would get it again for sure and I rate it 5/5.

Note: the previous trip they were selling regular and large servings, last time we ordered the large and it was a lot of food even for two people, we barely finished it and left feeling so full and sick haha. This time they changed their menu to cup and regular servings, phasing out the large serving. The large serving was perfect for two people and we were left full but content, not sick this time.

Harvey's. Blue Raspberry Frozen Red Bull Review.


I have tried the peach frozen red bull (search it on my blog) and today I'm reviewing the blue raspberry frozen red bull.

I was hoping to like this flavour despite blue raspberry flavours being normally hit or miss but it was very tart and not as good as the peach one. I wouldn't get it again and I rate it 2.5/5.

Dairy Queen. Poolside Punch Twisty Misty Drink Review.


I have done quite a few reviews from this restaurant (search them on my blog) and today I'm doing an experiment with the summer limited edition Poolside Punch twisty misty.

I went 3 times out for this drink, the photos above are in order of which one I got when and mind you each one is from a different location, so I visited 3 locations for this review.

Drink one was my first time trying this drink, it was DELICIOUS. This tastes like candy and I loved it.  I rate it 5/5.

Drink two was different looking and tasting, still like candy but it was not as good, overall not bad but I was disappointed compared. I rate it 3/5.

Drink three was also delicious, not quite as good as the first time but overall still really good and had that iconic candy flavour. I rate it 4/5.

I've been told it's only a summer drink but I want it forever haha! So I found each location does it a bit different, maybe I'll run to grab the first one again before the summer is over.

Leclerc. Celebration. Strawberry and Creme Truffle Butter Cookie Review.


I just did a review of this brand and type of cookie (search it on my blog) and today I'm trying the celebration cookie in the limited edition strawberry and cream flavour.

The cookie again is rich and overall tastes good with the chocolate and cookie but the strawberry cream is just okay. It's not as good as the raspberry in my opinion but not too bad. Again I can only eat one or two of these with how rich they are so I wouldn't buy them again but I rate them 3/5.

Leclerc. Celebration. Raspberry Truffle Butter Cookie Review.


Oddly enough I haven't had a Celebration cookie since I was a child. I wanted to try this one for review, they have a few flavours and this one is raspberry truffle. I've done quite a few reviews on this brand (search them on my blog).

These are rich, pretty tasty and the raspberry is lovely. The cookie is indeed buttery and the milk chocolate is nice. I could eat one or two but a whole box is too much and too rich for me but overall a good cookie and I rate them 3.5/5. I have another one to review next, stay tuned..

Love Child. Love Ducks. Cheese and Herb Corn Snack Review.


Yes I picked up these snacks because they are duck shaped haha, they are o cute and I wanted to try them for review.

These could be so much nicer but sadly they are not. The texture is a little off and the flavour is very muted with no cheese and a tiny bit of herb but otherwise they are very cute. I wouldn't eat them again and I rate them 2.5/5.

Stuffies Pastries. Sweet and Savoury Cro-Tai and Stuffies Pastry Review.


This little bakery sells animal themed treats, I was excited to try them for review. These fish shaped pastries are called cro-tai and the little bear and fish pastries coming up are called stuffies.

This first one above is smoked beef. It's a croissant style pastry filled with beef and cheese. The pastry itself was soft and didn't taste too bad, cheese was GREAT and stringy but the beef was just alright, I would've been happier with just cheese. This one wasn't too bad honestly and I rate it 3/5.

This one is cinnamon, the filling was not at all what I had expected, I wasn't sure what I thought I'd be getting but this was interesting. The taste of the filling was good but the texture was AWFUL, I couldn't eat it. It's very soft and squishy and I wouldn't get it again, I rate it 2/5.

This bear stuffie is filled with vanilla "cream", it was thin and barely filled, the taste was alright. This pastry is like a pancake meets a pound cake and it's a bit too thick and dry. I wouldn't get it again and I rate it 2/5.

This fish shaped stuffie is filled with strawberry jam and the jam was just alright a bit better filled than the previous one but overall not great and again this pastry was too thick and dry. I wouldn't get it again and I rate it a 1.5/5.

We got two cro-tai and a pack of 8 stuffies. Each croi-tai was 7.55 and the bag of 8 stuffies was 6.95. This place was more for the aesthetic than the flavour, I'm disappointed but still made for a good review. Note: they also have cute packaging haha.

Reko. Dark Chocolate Pizzelle Review.


I've done a review not too long ago of the brand (search it on my blog) and this time I'm doing the dark chocolate flavour.

These have almost a nice flavour but they are soooo dry, more than any pizzelle I've eaten. I don't think I'd get them again but they need cream or ice cream and I rate them 2.5/5.

5 Star Pizza And Shawarma. Chicken Shawarma and Fries Review.


I have done a few shawarma reviews (search them on my blog) and today I'm trying out 5 Star Shawarma. I ordered a chicken shawarma wrap and fries.

The wrap was not too bad but this is where I've discovered I'm not that into shawarma, I found it just okay and my problem is often that it's wrapped poorly and the tortilla is very thin; making the toppings spill everywhere. The chicken was alright you couldn't really taste it but the toppings and sauce were fine. It was not bad overall but not worth the price for these reasons and size and  being just not for me and I rate it 3/5.

The fries were a little weird with the coating on them but not a bad fry, they just didn't taste great. A lot of shawarma and pita restaurants do this type of coating on their fries, it's a weird texture and taste. I wouldn't get them again for taste, texture and serving size I rate them 3/5.

I do plan to order from them again but get other items, they have poutines, sandwiches, appetizers and pizzas.

TGI Fridays. Party Bites. Mac and Cheese Corn Snacks Review.


This is my first snack from this brand, these are mac and cheese corn snacks.

I'm disappointed, these lack flavour but are alright, they are just a hint of cheese and the texture isn't too bad. I wouldn't eat them again and I rate them 2.5/5.

Haitai. Honey Butter Chips Review.


I don't often see sweet chips, so this was interesting to me and I wanted to try them for review.

These taste like buttered popcorn meets pie crust. Overall it's an acquired taste, some here liked them some did not. I don't think these chips were for me, I don't think I'd eat them again and I rate them 2.5/5.

Great Value. Kettle Cooked. Sweet Chili and Sour Cream Chips Review.


I was excited to try these chips, as I like sweet chili and I thought these would be good to try for review.

These were lackluster in flavour and not spicy whatsoever. The flavour wasn't bad but didn't taste like much, it was some kind of muted seasoning meets a very sad bbq. I wouldn't get them again and I rate them a 3/5, higher than I thought but they aren't bad enough to be a 2.5, they are just meh.

Dr. Oetker. Ristorante. Mushroom Pizza Review.


I've done quite a few of these pizzas of this brand for review (search them on my blog) and today I'm trying the mushroom pizza.

I adore this pizza, the mushrooms and cheese go so well together and the crust is fair and sauce is good, overall very yummy. I'd get it again for sure and I rate it 4.5/5.

Nerds. Gummy Clusters Candy Review.


I did another review of this brand yesterday (search it on my blog) and this time I'm trying the nerds clusters.

(Sorry I'm not sure what happened to the photo, it's bad haha.)

I love these honestly and it's not that I think they taste amazing but they taste good, they are just addictive and fun to eat. I think the gummy centre is my favourite part, it's so chewy and strawberry and the nerds are a good texture and flavour addition. I'd get them and I rate them 4.5/5.
