Chances are also good the non-alcoholic beer tasted like watered-down dog p*ss Budweiser. A few companies are getting creative with hops, however. There is now… Read More ›

Sour Patch Kids Bunnies

People think vegans just eat leaves. I eat lots of candy. One of my current faves is the limited Easter edition Sour Patch Kids Bunnies. I love how they are sour, then sweet. I love the chewiness.

Trader Joe’s Candy Corn Popcorn

Recently I made a big Trader Joe’s Autumn/Halloween themed haul. Some of the “new to me” items were winners! Some were losers. A few were “meh.” Trader Joe’s Candy Corn Popcorn was one of the winners! I have to say, I was surprised – because I DO NOT like candy corn! To me, the only… Read More ›
