Tom’s Vinegar & Salt potato chips

25 Jul

This week I decided to review Tom’s Vinegar & Salt potato chips.

It is a known fact amongst my family and close friends that I LOVE anything vinegar! Earlier this year my step father to be bought me a case of these lovelies! All I have to say is WOW! To begin, the texture of these chips is like no other. They are thick and provide a crunch.

I have tried quite a few different brands salt & vinegar chips, but Tom’s seems to have much more flavor than most. By flavor I don’t mean the generic sour you get from most, but you can actually taste and smell the vinegar once the bag is opened. Beware though, one  will not be enough!

If you are looking for a good chip to have with your sandwich, or one to have on its own I would recommend Tom’s.

Also, If you have tried other salt & vinegar chips, and have decided that they are not for you, give these a try before you decide to turn your back on the variety as a whole.

Overall:  10 Stars!

Vampire and Zombie Blood oh my!

5 Oct

Hey Vamps and zombies, Have you recently come down with a case of bloodlust? Do you experience cravings to bite someone’s neck or did you just crawl out a grave and need some food A.S.A.P. Hold on there before you do something you will regret. We understand that Halloween is just around the corner and it’s easier to go around looking like a zombie or a vampire this time of year because people more than likely assume your on the way to a seasonal job of working at the haunted house.

HARCOS Laboratories one of the original makers of blood packs sent Edible Reminiscence samples of their products. We chose to review Blood Pack and Zombie Pack.

Suffering from a vampire bite or recently changing into a vampire? This following review on Blood Pack will help you learn the way of synthetic blood and may even save you from biting your friend’s neck.

 Blood Pack

From the site: Synthetic blood substitute. The fruit punch flavor packs 4 hours of energy along with iron, protein, and electrolytes. Not only does Blood Energy Potion have a similar nutritional makeup to real blood, but it has the same color, look, and consistency. Get real blood nutrients without that real blood taste! Re-sealable transfusion bag style pouch. Contains no real blood, just synthetic!

Packaging:5 stars
The packaging alone deserves 5 stars it even comes with blood finger prints on the package. The blood really does mimic the consistency of blood. We thought it was interesting how the blood separated when left alone for a while. We wouldn’t be surprised if this was really blood.

Taste:3 stars
It claims that it’s a fruit punch flavor, But both of us had some problem catching much flavor. It tasted like blood. Which isn’t really a bad thing, However we were just expecting it to taste something sweeter.

Price:3 stars
$3.99 It’s a little pricey. But the price seems to be more for the experience. Again the packaging is pretty awesome. We both liked the fact that it comes in the form of a blood transfusion bag style. This would be great to add for a Halloween party and not really for an everyday drink.

Availability:5 stars
These products are available anywhere from online, Hot Topic, FYE.

Did you recently just crawl out of a grave and have a monster appetite for blood. You might just be looking for some Zombie Blood. Warning we don’t recommend drinking this if your human. You might just turn into a zombie. Unless that’s what you want to do. You’ll save on the costume and be the hippest zombie during Halloween with your Zombie Blood Pack of course.

Zombie Blood Pack

From the site: Who says zombies should get to do all the attacking? Zombie Blood gives humans the opportunity to bite back! The world’s first synthetic zombie blood has a tangy lime flavor and packs up to four hours of undead energy. Zombie Blood has the same green look and slimy feel as the real stuff. The iron, protein, and electrolytes also give it a similar nutritional makeup. The realistic resealable specimen bag looks like it was stolen from a secret government lab and contains 100mL of synthetic zombie blood!

Packaging: 5 stars
Same as Blood Pack

Taste: 3 half stars
This drink claims to have tangy lime flavor, but once again both of us were a little stumped with the flavor. It tasted just like Blood pack, to us, with a few hints of citrus.

Price:3 stars
$3.99 Same as Blood Pack

Availability:5 stars
These products are available anywhere from online, Hot Topic, FYE.

Instead of doing a basic review Samantha decided to spice things up a bit and make an adult cocktail that features Zombie and Vampire Blood. Three cocktails ended up being made which are Blood Lust, Zombie Green Goo, Monster Mash. Continue reading

Peanut Butter and Banana Stuffed French Toast

9 Sep

The first time Briana ever tried French Toast her dad made it for her. At first she thought it was weird but then came to learn it’s actually very scrumptious . Now older Briana thought Edible Reminiscence would do a spin on basic french toast. Briana found Food Network Bobby Flay’s Peanut Butter and Banana Stuffed French Toast.

Briana couldn’t wait while Samantha was less than excited wondering if she could deal with this extremely rich sweet French Toast. With both of them in the kitchen reading the recipe instructions they both found them quite intimidating and time consuming. One thing to note it does help to have two people in the kitchen one prepping, the other dipping and cooking. Once we got the flow of things it was easy breezy.

Overall this recipe is rich and delicious, but not something we see ourselves cooking all the time. We nixed the maple syrup only because it seemed like it was going to be overkill of sweetness.
