First time buying this brand of frozen pizza. This is a 530g box.  Product of USA.   I like their logo: It's not delivery. It's Delissio. Crust: it is a whole wheat crust. I did not like the texture at all. It was hard to chew. It was cardboardy . Sauce: just the right amount of sauce and the flavour was nice. Toppings: lots of cheese and it was very tasty.  Pepperoni tasted tangy and the texture was fine. There could be more pieces of pepperoni.  I see under toppings it listed...

I was shopping and decided to stop in at Wok Box for the first time.  Nice decor. Wooden tables with chairs and also booths. Very clean. The menu is easy to see and read above the ordering counter.  I like this. I chose the rice bowl : Crispy Chicken.   Chose sweet and sour sauce. Food came in a large ceramic bowl. There were about 14 medium and large size chicken pieces. The chicken had a nice crispy coating . The chicken was tender. The sauce was tangy and spicey but not too spicey.  ...

I got this 250 g bag free from samplesurvey.  First time eating this. Easy to make. Put rice in frying pan with 2 TBSP water and heat.  Takes a few minutes. Ate the rice with baked salmon. The rice had a nice texture. The taste was bland.  It would be a good idea to saute mushrooms and other veggies and put this rice with it to add flavor. Acutally on the Uncle Ben's site for this product it says: Serve as a simple side or mix into main dish. No artifical flavours,colors,preservatives. Ingred...

I bought this 1.75 L carton of juice at Walmart for $1.47. It says "New" on the carton. It says "Made With Real Fruit" on the carton. Located in the refrigerator section.  Expiry date is May 22 and it is April 8 today so nice long expiry date. The juice did not taste sweet at all to me. I could taste pineapple and grape juices but very little pear/apple juice. Strong juice flavor. Did not taste watery. I would buy this again.

I bought this frozen pie at Superstore for $9.99. First time buying this. I found the graham wafer crust very sweet tasting. You could taste the graham wafers.  The filling had a good coconut taste and was creamy. The whipped topping was creamy and not too sweet. I would not buy this again because of the sweetness of the pie. Mostly because of the sweet crust. It says if you want an individual piece of the pie cut the piece frozen. Put it on a plate in the fridge for 45 minutes.  It took longer than tha...

No need to add sugar.  The box shows adding blueberries or strawberries and that is what I did.  The cereal sitting in milk for awhile does not get soggy.  You could add another type of...

I bought this 100g bar at Superstore on sale for $1.99.  This is my favourite Swiss Classic variety. The milk chocolate is deliciious.melts in your mouth. The wafter pieces add a bit of light crunchiness texture to the bar. You can see the pieces in the bar. I like this idea.  There is a hazelnut-chocolate filling which is an added flavour.

I bought this 250g (2 paninis) box of Bruschetta paninis at Superstore for free as I won a coupon from their contest. First time eating this frozen  product. You heat it in the oven at 450 degrees for 13-14 minutes. I found this was too hot and a bit of the bottom burned. I took it out at 13 minutes. I found the outside crust was nice and hot and crisp. I found towards the middle of the panini(inside ) it was not very hot. There was enough cheese(edam and cheddar) on top and enough tomato bits on to...
