Review: Lance BOLDS Buffalo Wing Blue Cheese Crackers

If you haven?t figured it out, I?m just reviewing random snacks I already have in my work desk snack drawer.

Lance BOLDS Buffalo Wing Blue Cheese Cracker Sandwiches! The problem with most snacks that purport to be ?Buffalo Wing Flavored? could equally be labelled as ?Sorta Tastes Like Hot Sauce But Not Really? Flavored?. I?m always left disappointed. How do these cracker sandwiches stack up?

(Get it? Because you can stack them?)

It?s a step in the right direction. They?re definitely tasty. There?s just a little heat, as you would expect from a mainstream snack food. The difference here is the addition of blue cheese. It adds some extra dimension to the standard hot sauce flavor. Do they taste like eating at your local Wing Shack? No. But they?re a welcome distraction from staring at my computer screen all day.Interesting Note: I?ve been working out on my lunch breaks from time to time. I got back to my desk last week and thought ?MAN. I think I can smell my shoes. That?s so weird, they?re basically new. I guess I need to get some spray or something.? Ten minutes later, I tracked down the smell. These crackers smell like funky shoes.

 

But in a good way??

Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos review! And where to find them!

Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos reviewHot damn! I finally found the Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos that Stephen Colbert has been raving over on the Colbert Report! I’ve been checking every store I go to and could not find a single bag! Today, I was getting stuff for our Easter BBQ and found them at Fiesta Mart in Arlington, TX. If you don’t have one nearby, you could always try to find them online: KatiesKandies has them.

Now are they worth it? Sure! I’ve had Sweet Chili chips before and haven’t liked them much. Usually they’re going for a Thai flavor and everything just ends up too dry tasting if that makes any sense. Too much heat and not enough flavor.

New Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos are surprisingly good. There’s definitely enough flavor to go around. It starts with a sweet cheesiness and gives you a little heat on the back end. It’s almost a BBQ taste. They weren’t very spicy to me, but some friends that tried them thought there was a decent amount of heat on them. They’re not my favorite Doritos flavor, but I definitely wouldn’t mind munching on them at a party or bbq. Or watching the Colbert Report. Gotta love that Colbert Bump!

Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos gets a 4 out of 5 on the awesomeness meter!

Mystery of the Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos- now without a review!

Doritos Sweet and Spicy Chiliupdate: I finally found these Doritos and have a review on this snack food here!

Today on the Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert had a huge segment on Doritos funding his escapades again. He practically swam in bags of Dorito’s new Spicy Sweet Chili flavor. They fell from the ceiling as if they were ballons… happy ballons, fill with corn chips. He tossed chips at the audience while he ate them. And as he ate them, he actually didn’t seem to like them much.

I had seen these chips earlier last week and thought about picking them up. I decided against it since sweet chili flavor on chips hasn’t worked out well in my experience. But all this attention they were getting, I figured I’d review them for you guys. It’s not cuz I love you guys, I’m just using you to get to your hot sister.

Well after searching 4 stores after midnight(in the rain, mind you) I still cannot freaking find these things. I’m positive I saw them last week! I’m not crazy, I swear! I can’t remember where I saw them, so I went to my usual places: Walmart, Kroger, Tom Thumb and QT (Quick Trip gas station). No luck. I even tried to call my little brother(who I think saw them with me) at 1am for help. For some strange reason, he wouldn’t answer me. Maybe Doritos took a page from the Nintendo marketing plan and are creating shortages to boost desirability…. or not.

Oh well. When I find them, I’ll be sure to post up a review. Till then, we’ll be following the “Dorito’s Spicy Sweet Pennsylvania Primary Coverage From Chili-Delphia- The City of Brotherly Crunch!” on the Colbert Report! Stay tuned!

Review- Taste of Thai- Arlington, TX

Taste of Thai frontAngela and I were driving around hungry with our recent room mate, James(if you ask, he goes by Jim but I refuse), who is somewhat new to the area and has a strong taste for almost all things Asian. The idea of Thai food was brought up, so I figured I’d show him the ones I know of in the area. We ended up at Taste of Thai at Arkansas and 360. I’d seen it before, but never actually dined there. Always up for an adventure, we took a step inside.

The atmosphere inside is very cozy and almost romantic. There are paintings of Southeast Asia on the wall that really built up the ambiance. A few reminded me of something my Cambodian parents would probably have. As a general note about small Asian restaurants, it seems pretty common to have a modest appearance but serve great food. That’s perfectly fine with me, I’m there to eat! Taste of Thai really breaks this mold with a great atmosphere.

They have a huge menu- and I took forever to decide as usual. I went for the Taste of Thai Spicy Beef ($8.95), James had the Panang Curry Chicken ($8.95) and Angela had the Noodles with Chicken in Brown Sauce ($7.75).
