Doritos Locos Tacos Chips

With the highly successful Doritos Locos Tacos giving Taco Bell a huge boost in sales, Doritos decided to try and cash in on more of that revenue and hype with Locos Tacos flavored chips. I say "try" because thats exactly what these chips are good for. Trying once and never buying again. They come in two flavors, Nacho Cheese and Cool Ranch just like the Locos Tacos. In each bag there are two flavors. The flavored chip and the crunchy taco chip. Doritos has made other products two flavors in a b

McDonalds Premium McWrap

I used to like McDonald's food. It was cheap, fast and filling. But as I've gotten older and tried more food I've realized how horrible McDonald's food actually is. I was one of the people that would eat their premium angus burgers. Ever since they stopped serving those and the Chicken Selects, McDonald's menu has not been appealing to me in the slightest. One of the few things I would still eat there are the crispy chicken McWraps. Even now I would still eat those. When I saw McDonalds had Prem

Combos Buffalo Blue Cheese Pretzel

Combos were a favorite snack of mine as a child. I loved the pizza flavored ones with a passion. So when I saw Combos Buffalo Blue Cheese Pretzels on the shelf I thought I'd get to relive the pleasant snacking experience of my past with a great new flavor. I was wrong. I love buffalo chicken wings dipped in blue cheese and the art on this bag is misleading. Of course its a pretzel snack and I wasn't expecting it to taste like the image on the bag, so I assumed the filling inside would be a nice

Doritos Locos Tacos

Doritos® Locos Tacos are the perfect combination of Doritos and Taco Bell. I'd say the perfect combination of tacos instead of "Taco Bell", but American tacos are completely different from actual tacos, but lets save that for another time. Currently there are two Doritos Locos Tacos available across the US, the Cool Ranch and Nacho Cheese. Some parts of the US have a third flavor called "Flamas", these I have not seen yet in my area. I did however get one Cool Ranch and a Nacho Cheese.

Utz Cheddar Cheese Balls

Utz Cheddar Cheese Balls are a nice airy treat with a decent cheese flavor. Utz often changes the containers their cheese balls come in to coincide with different seasons or events. These particular pictures were taken back during the NBA playoffs which is why the container has basketball ridges and corresponding sticker. These cheese balls have a decent cheddar cheese flavoring that is superior to Cheetos Puffs. Of course the flavoring is just that, a flavoring.. In no way does it ac

Kettle Brand Jalapeno Potato Chips

Kettle Brand Jalapeno Potato Chips are some of the best jalapeno chips available in stores. With that nice large red "Hot" pepper on the front of the package, I was expecting some good heat and these chips delivered. The chips are a nice gold color speckled with green jalapeno seasonings. But the flavor isn't just in those speckles, these chips are imbued with jalapeno flavor. After just a few chips you'll begin to notice the nice jalapeno burn sneaking up on you as an after taste.

Lay's Chicken & Waffles

Lay's Chicken & Waffles is one of the three Lay's potato chip flavors available as part of the "Lay's Do Us A Flavor" contest. That contest has ended already and I'm a bit late in posting this review. Upon looking at this bag I thought to myself, "Ewww.. Denny's and KFC combined their flavors into what might be amazing chips!" The chips are a darker yellow in color compared to regular Lay's. When opening the bag, the smell is the first thing that you notice. Maple Syrup, a very st

New York Style Pita Chips - Parmesan, Garlic & Herb

I've seen these "New York Style Pita Chips - Parmesan, Garlic & Herb" (huge name) in the store before but I never bought them because the price of the bag seemed a bit high for the amount of product. So when I came across this bag that was "50% more free" I jumped on these chips. I've never had Pita chips before so I had no idea what to expect. The packaging is nice, the chips look good but like I said, the size of the bag is what put me off. Here is a small bowl of the chips. The

Cheetos Mix-Ups Cheezy Salsa Mix

I saw these at the store a couple weeks ago and decided to try them out. Cheetos Mix-Ups Cheezy Salsa Mix sounded like a nice mix of heat that would give my taste buds a good work out. Unfortunately, they left much to be desired. While the packaging looked great and the claim of hot spiciness lured me in, these cheese poofs did not deliver. Upon opening the package the smell was odd. A weird combination of aromas that I was not expecting. This product features 4 different flavors, Cheddar, Ja

Lay's Sriracha

Lay's Sriracha is one of the three new Lay's potato chip flavors available as part of the "Lay's Do Us A Flavor" contest. I haven't had the chance to try the other two flavors, but I did get my hands on a bag of these. I have to admit.. I have never tried Sriracha sauce before so I have no idea just how spicy the sauce is by itself. I've heard that it is intensely hot and based on the picture on this bag I can only assume its going to be extra spicy. The chips themselves are a bi

Doritos Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings

Doritos Jacked chips are thick, large, bolder tasting versions of their regular Doritos lineup. So when I saw the Doritos Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings flavor I had to try them. The packaging details really jumped out at me and being a fan of the Ranch flavored doritos the blue color really grabbed my attention. The chips are huge like all the other Doritos Jacked chips and the flavor is almost spot on for what it claims to be. The Hot Wings flavor is a spicy buffalo flavor with a hin

Lay's Stax Buffalo Wings With Ranch

I tried Lay's Stax for the first time this week and got two different flavors. Original and Buffalo Wings With Ranch. The originals are nothing special. I used those as a base to evaluate the new flavor I was interested in. Original Lay's Stax taste just like Pringles Original except the chips are about 1 1/2 times thicker. Buffalo Wings With Ranch look exactly like they do on the packaging. One side plain with the other side flavored. The chips were very consistent with no one chip m

      I got back from Ohio last night. My mom had a Remembrance Party in honor of my dad this last weekend. It was a really nice time. I'm glad I got to see so many people that knew my dad and talk to them about how he was a positive and/or great influence in their lives. The party was a bbq party too. My younger brother smoked 30 pounds of pulled pork and 20 pounds of bbq beef. I helped with the process. It was a great time.

      My neighbor next door is moving so he had a full house sale over the weekend. I lucked out and bought his snowblower for $150.  Its got some years of use on it, but hes kept it in amazing shape. A new gas one like this is around $800+. I hope it works great this next winter. It could save me all kinds of time shoveling.

      My PC came with a free month of Game Pass Ultimate. I decided to check out what I can play for free and found out how garbage the Xbox App for PC is. I downloaded Halo Infinite. The game wouldn't load. It would show the spartan insignia and then I'd just get a black screen. I never got to the title screen. Upon investigating this, its apparently a common issue. I tried all the "fixes" and uninstalled and re-installed the game twice. It never worked. So then I try to play The Ascent with a friend. The game worked fine solo, but we couldn't connection to each other. Again, I look it up and its once again.... a common issue. This time with no fix. We gave up and bought it on steam where it works without any issues. Needless to say, I'm cancelling Game Pass.

      I never wanted to try to Souls game. The thought of being one shotted and having to start all over again from a single mistake always turned me off. I don't have as much time as I use to to "git gud". Fallen Order was the closest i ever played to a souls style game, but by the time you got force powers, the game became more like  inFAMOUS games than Souls. I got Elden Ring for whatever reason and honestly... I've been enjoying the hell out of it despite some soul crushing moments. I like the freedom, the exploration, finding good gear laying around without having to fight anything. Gear that will give you a fighting chance to get even better gear. You're not forced to fight any of the bosses in any particular order You can skip bosses to get to most of the world with exception of the last 2 areas. The purpose of beating bosses to to progress the story. So I've played in a way where I've gone to most the world. geared up as high as possible.. allowing me 1 fully upgraded legendary weapon.. and being able to have an easier time with the story bosses... then there are "optional" bosses that are just savage AF and HP sponges. I've beaten a few but some are just beyond my skill level. Either way, I highly recommend this game as a non souls fan. At the very least, its worth your money when it goes on discount sometime down the road.
