I bought this 200g bag of Snack Factory Pretzel Chips at Shoppers for $4.__.(forget the cents) I had tried a free sample with dip at a store so that is why I bought them.  The package says "thin,crunchy prezel crackers"  This is true. Good flavour ,not too salty. Good with the dips I had free: Lemon Dill and Roasted Garliic.  Texture was not too hard. I would buy these again.

I bought this 300g box of Dare Viva Puffs,Holiday Edition,Candy Cane at Shoppers . First time eating these. I found the peppermint flavour far too strong.  There is an outer chocolate layer,a white marshamllow layer,a green layer(like marshmallow texture) and a red jelly-like layer ,and last the biscuit .The rest of the cookie was fine.    I would not buy these again. Very disappointed in these.  Nutrition facts: per 2 cookies or 40g: calories 160,fat 6g,sodium 60mg,carbs 27g,fibre 0g,sugars 20...

I bought this 100g bar in Target in Grand Forks ,North Dakota for $2.89 . Never seen it in Canada. Package on the front is eye catching: "Nice To Sweet You". "Pick Me Up Before You Go" The outside of the bar is the usual delicious milk chocolate . The inside is a thin layer of soft dark chocolate filling and a thin layer of vanilla soft  filling with tiny pieces of almond mixed in.  The filling is delicious and flavourful. I would highly recommend this bar. High quality. Nutrition fa...

This was on Global TV last night. I found the bachelorette,Jasmine Lorimer age 27,,originally from Kenora,Ont.now living in B.C.  to be very pretty and well spoken. She seems to be down to earth.  She has a lovely laugh and was laughing a lot throughout the show and it was a genuine laughter I found. She met 20 guys from all across Canada with  a good mix of occupations like: model,firefighter and aviation engineer. One guy at first meeting was dressed scantily as a waiter (bare bum) and broug...

I bought this 660 g package of 6 Lemon Cranberry Muffins from Superstore for $4.00. First time buying these. I make a lot of my own muffins but too hot to bake right now and family is coming over . The muffins are a large size and I could only eat half of one. The lemon flavor comes out very well. I was satisfied with the number of cranberries in the muffin. The texture of the muffin was light and fluffy.  Cranberries were a soft texture. Nutrition facts for 1 muffin(,110g):   calories 400,fat 20g,s...

The egg was perfect in texture and size. The cheese was cheddar and blended in well with the egg flavor. The bacon was crisp and tasted delicous. The whole sandwich was way beyond my...

My husband bought this 250g package of chocolate creme cookies for $2.50 at a Solo Store in a town outside our city. It says "New' on the box. First time eating these. It is a sandwich cookie like Oreos are. The 2 wafers surrounding the filling were crispy and of good chocolate flavour. The cream centre was very creamy and had a good chocolate flavour.  The wafers are thinner than an Oreo. I would buy these again. Not too sweet for me.

On AMC TV.  The finale was dramatic.  An explosion of fire in the restaurant happened with Dion,TJ and Tommy  inside the restaurant and the story ends right there! What an ending. Did anyone die in the fire? Hope there is a season 2 to find out. I would watch season 2 for sure . TJ started talking after not talking for maybe a year after his mother's sudden death ,when a car hit her. TJ saw the accident and is always having flashbacks about it.  TJ says to his father  his mother's d...

The 125g box of 5 soft baked bars were bought at Superstore for $2.98 for a special promotion. "New" it says on the box. First time buying these. The cookie had a soft texture.  Lots of chocolate chips inside.  There were swirls of chocolate icing on top of the cookies. The whole cookie did not taste too sweet to me.  I doubt I would buy these again as these are expensive.

First time visiting this pavillion . Entertainment was fantasic! Local Irish Dancers danced to Irish music and the dancing was supberb!  Costumes were glittery and colorful. Two dancers,a female and male ,came from Ireland to dance for the show. These 2 were outstanding in their steps. Reminded me of Riverdance  fame. A band from Ireland,(singing and instruments)(guitars and banjo) 5 males, performed a number of  Irish songs witrh great enthusiasm . Very talented. Food was delicious. I had the ...

The new season has started and I have watched every season so far. 4 of the houseguests are returning guests from other seasons. I don't like this. They have an unfair advantage plus I like to see new faces. The houseguests were put into 4 teams instead of playing as  individuals. I don't like this. There is a new competiton called Road Kill and an RV is brought in . All the guests play a competition in the RV and the winner nominates someone to go on the block and can do it ANOMINOUSLY.  I do n...

I bought this 946ml of ice cream at Superstore on sale for $2.98,regular $3.99. First time buying this product. There is an equal amount of vanilla and chocolate ice cream in it. There is not much caramel in it but what there is ,is smooth and flavourful. I wish there was more of it.  The ice cream itself is smooth but not as creamy as Chapman's for example. I would buy it again. Nutrition facts: for 1/2 cup or 125ml :   calories 160,fat 7g,sodium 70mg,carbs 21g, sugars 17g,protein 3g,. Some in...
