Truth be told, writing reviews for beverages is always a challenge for me. Beverages can be easily divided into broad categories: alcoholic/non-alcoholic, fizzy/flat, sweet/neutral and of course, delicious/disgusting – which in turn provides little challenge for a review. At any given time, I generally have a collection of cans and bottles gathering dust on our shelves because they have nothing noticeable or extraordinary about them (I’ve since curbed my “buying-drinks-specifically-for-Clearance-Cuisine” habit). In fact, today’s product was purchased at least six months ago, but it’s still good. Still good.

When I buy a product for the site, I always try to pick things that err on the side of ridiculous, whether it’s a quirky ingredient, stupid slogan and/or mascot or a terrible Flash-based website that’s straight from the 90s. In this case, today’s feature drew me in because: the word “SEA” in the name (the sea is delicious, no?) and the concept of a non-caffeine based energy drink. After flipping the can around, I learned it also has ~organic seaweed extract~ which sealed the deal for me. Read the rest of this entry »

There’s no better way to kill time relax on a lazy Sunday afternoon than baking your own sugar cookies. What’s even better is when the mix is all made up for you and you only have to add an egg (or if you prefer, an egg substitute) and some butter. While I’ve glanced over many boxed sugar cookies mixes in the past, this one caught my eye because it includes a cookie cutter. And not just any cookie cutter. It’s a duck.

Oh, plus the mix is organic and has whole wheat and stuff so you won’t feel as guilty as you bite the heads off your newly baked duck cookies. Read the rest of this entry »

Apparently, limey Jamie Oliver isn’t the only one promoting a food revolution with America’s kids. While Revolution Foods (the makers of Jammy Sammies) isn’t doing crazy stuff like pouring sand into school buses and naming children stupid things like “Petal Blossom” and “Buddy Bear”, they are aiming to provide snacks school lunches to kids that are a bit more nutritious than pizza and Little Debbie snack cakes (no offense, Debbie).

While they’re more like a Nutrigrain bar that an actual sandwich, Organic Jammy Sammy snack size sandwich bars are everything a Whole Foods shoppin’ mom would want for their kid: organic, no trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup, whole grain, wheat free and colored with things like “red cabbage extract”.  Read the rest of this entry »
