Pogos potato cheese sticks review

Pogos Jalapeno Cheddar, White Cheddar and Hickory SmokedThe nice people at Medora Snacks sent us some samples of their new Pogos potato cheese sticks. Thanks guys! These are wholesome snacks made with all natural ingredients. A quick peak at the nutritional facts shows that these are actually better for you than most other snacks.

So what about taste? Taste is the most important part of a snack food and Pogos passes that test hands down. I was a little confused at first about the flavor but soon realized why. Pogos really taste like the flavor they claim to be. When I tasted the Hickory Smoked Pogos, I was expecting the same generic barbeque flavor that you get with most chips. No, these actually have a smoke taste to them. The White Cheddar Pogos(my favorite) taste like real cheese, not some fake orange stuff. And the JalapeƱo Cheddar definitely has the kick of jalapeno. And it’s a spiciness that lasts.

Pogos have a very satisfying texture and crunch. They are not some flimsy little chip; these sticks have a serious crunch.

Pogos potato cheese sticks gets a 4 out of 5 awesomes. Pogos have a satisfying crunch and flavor that won’t stretch your waistline!

Full Throttle Mother- strangely does not taste like moms

Full Throttle Mother review
Today we’re trying out Full Throttle Mother, just in time for this semester’s first round of exams! This is the latest in the Full Throttle energy drink lineup from Coca-Cola. The drink is Acai Berry flavored and boasts “Energy from Natural Sources”. A quick run through the ingredients shows its got Ginseng extract, Caffeine and Guarana extract along with vitamins b3, b6, b12 and E. Pretty stereotypical energy drink ingredients. The difference here is Coca-Cola uses 40% fruit juice(apple, pear and blueberry).

Ok, for some reason, I bought this without reading the actual flavor of the drink. Regular Full Throttle and Full Throttle Fury don’t have flavors. From their names, I guess they’re supposed to taste like angry car parts. Well, after drinking half of it, I finally noticed the small silver print at the bottom denoting the Acai Berry Flavor. Acai is the latest new product of the antioxidant craze. The only other Acai Berry flavored anything I’ve had was Emergen-C and I hated it. Think blueberry flavoring but more tart. Now turn that into a syrup and use a little too much of it. It’s a bit too overpowering for my tastes.

Acai aside, the fruit juices make FT Mother much smoother than other energy drinks, even though it is carbonated. This is very welcome in my opinion. When I buy an energy drink, its usually because I’m ridiculously tired and it’s usually in the morning. I hate how most energy drinks burn the hell out of your throat with the carbonation. Especially when you’re trying to chug it on the run.

Overall- I think I’d like this much more if it wasn’t Acai Berry. I’d still probably drink it in a pinch because of the juice in it. Energy drinks are usually more for utility than taste anyways. Still, kind of disappointed it didn’t taste like moms…

Pirate’s Booty (giggle)

Pirate's Booty review

Maybe I have the sense of humor of a 5 year old. Or maybe I’m hoping to draw misplaced and confused Johnny Depp fans to netfoodie.com. Whatever the reason, I chose to review Pirate’s Booty from Robert’s American Gourmet Snacks .

I picked up my Booty (teehee) from Whole Foods Store in their chip aisle. I’ve seen these all over the place though: campus stores, vending machines, grocery stores, etc. The company apparently has an entire line of Booty chips ranging from Fruity Booty to Veggie Booty. I picked up my 4oz bag for 2 bucks on sale. The bag is bigger than it sounds because these are actually pretty light. I’d say about the size of a bag of Doritos.

Pirate’s Booty are aged white cheddar flavored puffs of rice and corn. They’re somewhat healthy- 5g of fat, 180 calories- and boast to be all natural. They’re very light and airy, almost like packing peanuts. Unlike packing peanuts, however, they taste great! The actual booty are very randomly shaped nuggets. Personally, I think they could have gone with a little more flavoring on it, but I’m a huge fan of white cheddar. They’re filling enough to snack on and healthy enough to not feel too bad.

Check out the pictures of my all natural Booty!
