Louis Rich

November 24th

I don’t buy a lot of cold cuts and I haven’t bought the pre-sliced, packaged kind in forever- or maybe ever (technically my parents bought it last time I probably ate them).   I forgot how cute the old Louis Rich logo was with the turkey.  The label is great, it uses flat colors and has [...]

Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter

November 10th

Smucker’s is known for their jam and jelly (and some ice cream toppings like Magic Shell)  but they also make peanut butter as well as a kind of gross PB and jelly Frankenstein product called Goober.  But they bring it back to basics with their natural product too.
The jar on the left is from a [...]

Libby’s Pumpkin

November 3rd

 
Happy November!   I love anything with pumpkin in it so there’s always plenty o’ canned pumpkin in my cupboards for when I feel like baking something.  Oddly I’ve never made pumpkin pie, the closest I got was pumpkin cheesecake but if anyone is looking for awesome pumpkin recipes let me know, I made these killer [...]

Hershey’s Miniatures

Happy Halloween!  I actually meant for this to be my post much earlier today and somehow here it is 8:00pm Halloween night, I’m watching Nightmare on Elm St. 3 (the best of the series) and not getting any trick-or-treaters because we live in a stupid neighborhood but anyway..
I thought posting about Hershey’s Miniatures would be [...]

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter

October 25th

I’ve never had ICBINB.  I’m either a butter or Smart Balance girl, but I thought their old commercials with Fabio were pretty funny, not hilarious but enough to induce a chuckle.
The old box has a flat yellow background with a thick red stripe on the right to showcase the product’s serving suggestion and information like [...]

Oreo

July 8th

As I’ve mentioned before, Oreos were not allowed in our house  growing up and we just had Hydrox but when I was at friends’ houses they would always have Oreos so I got to experience them there.  In general I didn’t notice a huge difference in taste.  I’m not much of a black-cookie fan but I like them for a [...]

Hamburger Helper

June 25th

I can honestly say that I’ve never had Hamburger Helper. I almost feel like it’s too late to start trying it now because it seems like something that should be experienced as a kid but I guess that’s just because that’s when I first became aware of it.  I was very familiar with their commercials [...]

Kudos

June 14th

Kudos came out in 1986 and I’m not sure what the reason was that my parents never bought these but I vaguely remember my sister and I begging for them to buy some but we were denied.  Maybe they were considered too “candy” for my parents to buy, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it was because they [...]

Marie’s Dressing

May 20th

Marie’s must have discontinued their Sour Cream and Dill dressing because I haven’t seen it in a while, but let me tell you, it was delicious.  I don’t know why they always discontinue good stuff.  I recently found an ad for one of my all-time favorite products ever and wonder how something so awesome gets the axe but… [...]

Cheez Whiz

May 7th

I think the only time I had Cheez Whiz was in Phlidelphia at Pat’s, because I heard pretty much everyone uses Cheez Whiz and on their Wiki page it says they do.  I remember it tasting okay but not amazing.  I can see how it would be convenient to just heat up in the microwave at home and [...]
