Review: Walden Farms Pancake Syrup

Once again, forums have done me solid by awaring me of this gems existence. You can find it in the diabetic/specialty food section of most supermarkets and its runs for about $3.50 per bottle. Since discovering this I have ripped through multiple bottles, and have bee using it for oats, and french toast almost daily. 
Getting a solid picture of this was tough, but this shows the color alright, which is similar to real syrup.
The taste is quite authentic, especially for something that boasts 0 calories. A lot of other sugar free syrups are loaded with sugar alcohols which I avoid like the plague (and also carry calories), but this has none and is sweetened with splenda. You can detect a slight artificial taste if you taste it by itself, but when used to top dishes that traditionally have syrup on them, the taste is almost indistinguishable from the real deal. The texture is the one fall back however, as it is quite watery. This stuff really likes to slide right off whatever you pour it on and flood your plate. This is a very minor setback however, as I will gladly mop it up with my french toast/pancakes/waffles/ etc. (you get the idea)

Not much to be said about the nutrition facts. Zeroes across the board with a trace of sodium. In reality, if you were to drink the entire bottle there are probably like 20-30 calories, but when used in reasonable quantities its negligible and can be considered 0 cals. This is clearly the biggest selling point of this product and the fact that it tastes awesome is nothing short of incredible. This can save you a ton of calories and would make a great tool to a serious dieter. Or if you are like me and just like to have extra cals to play with, its definitely worth checking out. FYI they have a full line of products that are zero calories that I am slowly working my way though. So far this is the best of the bunch though.

Review: Soy Slender Chocolate Soy Milk

Soy milk, you may be asking yourself? I was the same way before purchasing this. Im not lactose intolerant and enjoy at least 1 glass of real milk a day. I never saw the need to try any of the "non dairy" milk alternatives, but decided it was time to go to the dark side and see what the hype was all about. 

I know you like the fact I drink my chocolate milk out of a Stella chalice.

Upon pouring,  I was immediately able to detect a difference between this and real chocolate milk. seems thinner and doesn't stick to the glass. That wasn't going to deter me though and I gladly slugged down the small glass...Hmmm interesting, verrrry interesting. As I had expected the consistency is quite watery, however it also has a creamy taste and has a silky mouthfeel (most likely due to the fat content).  The taste is quite pleasant as well. The chocolate flavor isn't going to knock your socks off, but it is certainly something I could see myself sipping with breakfast or after a workout. There is a slight aftertaste, but Im assuming that is just how soy milk tastes. If you didn't really bask in the flavor you might not even notice it.

The nutrition facts are actually one of the things that inspired me to buy this product. The carbs (and sugar most importantly) are much lower than regular milk, and its even more impressive when compared to chocolate milk. The protein and fat content are both pretty much the same as a standard glass of 2% milk, and this even packs 4 grams of fiber per glass. When you account for all these factors this seems like a really solid alternative to good old cows milk. The taste is good and now Im curious about their two other flavors (vanilla and cappuccino). If you are looking for a low cal chocolate milk fix, or just want to switch things up I'd go ahead a give this a shot.

Review: Blue Bunny Birthday Party

Well as you can see, I'm a bit of an ice cream/junkfood addict and as I've proclaimed before, I love cake flavored ice cream. When I saw this half gallon on sale for $2.50 I just couldn't pass it up. I had high hopes after my great experience with their Red Velvet Cake flavor, and couldn't wait to dig in. The carton description reads: "white cake flavored ice cream with confetti shaped candy pieces and a blue frosting ribbon". My mouth was watering as I read that and I quickly scooped myself 2 servings.

The base "white cake" flavor is quite authentic, although it seems to lack that grainy/doughy texture some cake ice creams tend to have. It is very sweet; possibly too sweet for some, but for me it was quite enjoyable. The confetti candy pieces were fairly plentiful but didn't really add much to the flavor. They are similar to the large sprinkle things you would put on sugar cookies so they add little flavor/texture and just a bit of extra color. The blue ribbon swirl was absolutely delicious and reminded me of that cheap cotton candy flavored ice cream I was raised on. Unfortunately in my small bowl I didn't get much of the ribbon. I'm sure there will be a large network of it within the depths of this half gallon, however, and I will gladly excavate it! Again, this ribbon adds nothing in terms of texture and is extremely sweet. If you don't have a huge sweet tooth, I can see this being too much for you. The one thing this flavor really lacked in my opinion is any real cake pieces mixed in. Im not aware of any cake ice cream that incorporates sprinkles and cake pieces (please inform me if you are) and that could have brought this flavor to top tier. Unfortunately the lack of mix ins leaves you wanting and leaves it in the middle of the pack.

As far as nutrition facts go, they are decent on this flavor. Mid level in terms of fat, but A LOT of sugar. If you only care about calories though, this shouldn't be too hard to fit into any diet. My two serving bowl was quite enough to fulfill my ice cream craving and it only clocked in at 300 calories. This is a decent lighter choice if you are getting bored of the other options available and I could see this being really good for making your own sundaes. Then you can incorporate real mix-ins and  I believe this flavor will really shine. Overall I'm not upset I bought this at only $2.50 but most likely won't re-visit it any time soon. I think I'll stick with their red velvet cake flavor and keep exploring the other Duff Goldman offerings.

Review: Quaker "Quakes" Sweet Varieties

While these have never been a staple in my pantry, over the years I'm sure I have sampled most of the flavors. My dad is more of a salty/spicy snack kind of guy though, so I had mostly tried the varieties of these that fit that bill. Heres a link to the full line up in case you are curious of the available offerings: (use the bottom nav bar to see them all).
Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, onto the snacks. As you may have noticed, Im big into buying things on sale, especially things I don't deem necessities (I.E. things I tend to review on this site) and low and behold, I picked these bad boys up on sale for a mere $1 a pop.  I was able to snag all but the apple cinnamon flavor that are of sweet flavored offerings, and decided to pass on all the salty ones.  

Top left: Caramel Corn
Top right: Kettle Corn
Bottom left: Vanilla Creme Brûlée
Bottom right: Chocolate

The texture on all of these is like a slightly more crispy version of a standard rice cake. they have a nice crunch to them and are perfect size for snacking. They are also the perfect vesicle for your favorite dips such as nut butters, fluff, or anything else you could think of. 

Ill go ahead and start with my favorite of the bunch, which was the caramel corn. These things have a great sweet caramel-y flavor and really live up to their name. The flavoring isn't overly sweet and the amount that is on each cake is just right.

In close second was the kettle corn. Im a huge fan of real kettle corn, and these captured the addicting "salty-sweet" aspect pretty well. It certainly isn't as tasty as the kettle corn you get in a severely oversized bag at the fair, but it was still tasty none-the-less.

Coming in third was the vanilla creme brûlée. Ive never had real creme brûlée but I'm quite certain these don't capture that flavor very accurately. They have pretty much just a sweet coating that is slightly vanilla flavored. nothing special, but certainly not unappetizing.

In dead last comes chocolate. I was really surprised how bad these were! I was expecting these to top my list when I picked up the lot, but they were really a disappointment. The flavoring they used is nothing like the one found in my earlier review of their full sized chocolate rice cakes, and is really tough to describe. It just tasted like it had a sweet coating with a faint chocolate after taste. If you are a chocolate snob, stay away from these.

The above label is from the chocolate variety, but they are all pretty similar varying only by 10-20 calories. For only 120 calories, the serving size of 13 cakes is quite generous. I have been eating one serving of these every night and have found that the 30g serving is quite enough for a decent snack. with how low cal they are, they are a perfect option to curb your sweet tooth without breaking your diet. The caramel corn ones will definitely become a mainstay in my pantry and I may even start trying the rest of the flavors I passed up on.


Caramel corn: 9/10
Kettle corn: 8/10
Vanilla creme brûlée: 6.5/10
Chocolate: 3/10

Review: General Mills Trix Cereal

Ahhh, Trix cereal. Who hasn't tried these at some point in their life? Walking through the supermarket yesterday I noticed all of generals mills "kiddie cereals" were on sale for $1.99 per box, so I decided to take a trip down memory lane and pick up a few nostalgic favorites (also got Cinnamon toast crunch and Lucky charms. will inevitably review them too). I was a little surprised to see that Trix had changed from fun fruit shapes to standard sphere. When did this happen? These are now essentially wacky colored kix. I think as a kid half of the appeal of these was the shapes so needless to say I was a little disappointed off the bat. Not looking good so far, but I poured myself a bowl any way.   

The serving of 32g (pictured above) is surprisingly voluminous, which is always a nice touch for those of us who are "never full." I had it with 1/2 cup of skim milk which is my standard when eating cereal. At first bite the vaguely fruity artificial flavoring immediately brought me back to my younger days. It sparked memories of saturday mornings which were spent chowing down on cereal and watching cartoons in my PJs. That is one thing you have to love about branded products. No matter how much you change, they always stay the same. Throughout the bowl (which I ate voraciously I might add) the spherical morsels remained somewhat crunchy which is a major plus. Other than "flake" cereals, I cannot stand when cereal becomes soggy. Unfortunately this was probably the main highlight of this product. The fruit flavors are not distinct at all and they all just mesh into a slightly fruity artificial flavor. While not unpleasant at all, it just isn't as great as I remembered it. Now that I think about it, I'm quite sure I wasn't even that big of a fan of Trix as a kid so I really shouldn't have had high expectations. I'll put this one in the back of the pantry and work my way through other, more delicious kiddie cereals before revisiting this one. 
The nutrition info is pretty standard for a kids cereal. Pretty low cal, negligible fiber, and fairly high sugar. Im not overly concerned with sugar content but if you have diabetes or something this clearly isn't for you. Overall, its not terrible, but it certainly isn't anything to call home about. If you want a bit of nostalgia, go ahead and pick this up, but otherwise pass this one and move onto other childhood favorites.

Review: Blue Bunny Red Carpet Red Velvet Cake

As promised, I decided to go ahead and do a review of this ice cream which has found its way into my regular rotation. Cake flavored ice cream is one of my weaknesses and this is definitely one of the better offerings I've tried. Blue Bunny describes this ice cream as "Red velvet flavored ice cream swirled with cream cheese frosting flavored ice cream with red velvet cake pieces."

Once again, the "cream cheese frosting" flavored ice cream is some what of a let down, although it is slightly better in this flavor than in their carrot cake offering. It doesn't have much, if any cream cheese flavor, but is still pretty tasty. Its more like a cool whip or regular frosting flavor rather than cream cheese frosting but it provides a nice balance with the cake base. The red velvet ice cream on the other hand lives up to its name and is very reminiscent of real red velvet cake. The color is also pretty authentic which earns some points in my book. The cake pieces in this pint were plentiful and well distributed as I seemed to get some in every bite or two. They remained moist but weren't soggy. You actually have to chew these morsels. The texture of the ice cream is fairly light and airy which can lead to excessive melting if you are a slow eater. While I love the super heavy premium ice creams, its always a nice change to eat some of this less decadent stuff occasionally. I think they both have their place, and this is certainly easier to fit into your diet.

As far as the macros go, they are pretty solid. Blue bunny isn't a "premium" ice cream so the fat content is considerably less than other competitors. This keeps the calorie content down and you could easily put down a whole pint of this in one sitting. For being a lower calorie and fairly inexpensive ice cream this flavor gets two thumbs up from me. If you are on a diet and need a lower calorie fix definitely check that out. Even if you aren't dieting I still recommend checking this flavor out as it's a solid lighter option. This flavor will remain in my go-to line up and has renewed my faith in Blue Bunny. Now I need to try the other "Duff Goldman" offerings. Keep an eye out for reviews!

Review: Quaker Chocolate Crunch Rice Cakes

In the bodybuilding community there a quite a few foods that are total cliches to eat, and rice cakes are one them. I try not to be the stereotypical "bro" so usually I stray away from these foods, but when I saw a chocolate flavored rice cake I was definitely intrigued. The sweet coating must automatically detract its place in the lifting community, right? That was my justification anyway and into the cart it went. As soon as I got home I tore through the flimsy plastic wrap that was sheathing my newest find, and grabbed a few to test out.

The chocolate coating isn't as thick as I would have liked and as you can see, bare rice cake shines through in a few areas. The chocolate flavor also doesn't permeate past the thin veil on the surface. It was in fact the classic "bro" rice cake, with just a sparse chocolate coating. It's not all bad, however, as there are actually mini chocolate chips tucked into the nooks and crannies of the rice cakes. When you get a bite that has a few of these it really intensifies the chocolate flavor and gives you the impression you are eating something far more decadent than you really are. Even in areas devoid of the chips, the flavor is still pretty good and beats the hell out of a plain rice cake. The real beauty of these, however, is when you begin to experiment with toppings. I had one with Biscoff spread, one with sunflower butter, and one with marshmallow fluff (sorry, these were all too delicious for me to wait around and snap pics of). Even just a thin layer of each of the respective spreads turned the rice cakes from "meh" to delicious.

As you probably know by now I also like to discuss the nutrition info in my reviews. It is extremely solid on this product clocking in at only 60 calories per cake. Even when I topped it with my spreads of choice they still clocked in around 100 calories each and tasted like they contained far more. Overall I would definitely recommend picking these up, either for light snacking to beat that chocolate craving, or to indulge a bit and make some delicious creations. If you come up with any other tasty things to put on top of these let me know in the comments section below.

Review: Lotus Biscoff Spread - Crunchy

If you have never heard of Biscoff spread, you are seriously missing out. I was lucky enough to be informed of its existence a few months ago on the forums, and it's been a mainstay in my cupboard ever since. As someone with multiple allergies, finding alternatives to PB and other nut butters has always been a challenge, but this product really helps to fill the void. The best way I can describe it is spreadable cookies...yes I'm serious. There are two varieties; Creamy and of course crunchy. I had been living off of the creamy variety for months and when I visited my local wal-mart last week I stumbled across the crunchy version. Needless to say I snatched the jar up quicker than you could say Jack Robinson. Upon opening the jar you are greeted with the sweet aroma of speculoos emanating from the course golden paste.

According to the website the spread is comprised of 66% biscoff cookies (compared to 57% in the creamy variety) and once you taste this you will believe it. Its not just sweet, but actually has that distinct "airline cookie" taste they tout. It is similar to a graham cracker, but there is another element to it which I can't quite put my finger on. The crunchiness is really unique and you can actually chew the paste and get a nice hearty crunch. I prefer to eat this spread thin on a warm tortilla, but I'd be lying if I said I hadn't snuck a few heaping spoonfuls straight out of the jar. This spread is definitely versatile as well. They recommend dipping apple slices in it, spreading it on waffles, in sandwiches, or even using it as a frosting for cookies/pastries. I have yet to fully explore all of the uses, but seeing how much I enjoy this I will definitely begin experimenting with it. I can't decide whether I like the creamy or crunchy version better, but I highly recommend picking up either (or better yet, both).

As for the nutrition facts, they are pretty standard for a fat based spread. A little lower in fat, and higher in carbs than a regular nut butter, but still slightly lower in calories. I suppose there aren't as many micronutrients in this spread, but what were you expecting in something made mostly of cookies? Overall this is a great choice for those with allergies, or even as a tasty alternative to PB/other nut butters. At $3.50 per jar its in the same price range as competing spreads, so it won't break the bank. Pick this stuff up if you see it and you can thank me later.

Recipe: General Tso's Chicken

For my first recipe I figure I'll keep it relatively simple. This is a healthier version of the chinese take out favorite and can be prepared quickly with things you most likely already have in your house.

Large boneless/skinless chicken breast diced into small cubes
2 servings frozen asian stir fry veggies (the one I use has peas, carrots, broccoli, peppers, and onions)
3 green onion shoots, diced

2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp teriyaki sauce
1.5 tbsp Chili garlic sauce
4g corn starch
1 tbsp Red wine vinegar
1 packet of splenda (sugar or other sweetener should work as well)
2 tbsp of water

Boil/steam the frozen veggies until tender. Drain and set aside
Cook chicken in a large pan until almost cooked, and add in the green onions.Let the chicken finish cooking and toss in the cooked veggies, and stir to incorporate.

While the chicken is cooking, combine all ingredients listed for the sauce in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once the sauce just begins to boil turn the heat down to low and stir occasionally. It should thicken up very quickly. If it becomes too thick add a few extra TBSPs of water and stir. Once the chicken and veggies are cooked toss them in the sauce until evenly coated, and serve immediately. I prefer to serve it over white rice, but you could eat it as is or even use it in a stir fry.

Review: Diet Sierra Mist Strawberry Kiwi Splash

Im a total diet soda junkie, and have tried pretty much every one on the market at least once. In my opinion there aren't enough fruit flavored ones available, so when I saw this last week I HAD to pick it up. I'm a fan of the regular diet sierra mist, so I knew right off the bat I'd enjoy this. The flavor starts off just like any other lemon lime soda with a crisp taste, but then all of the sudden you get that extra fruit flavored kick. It is predominately strawberry in my opinion, but maybe there are subtle hints of kiwi as well. The thing I enjoyed most about this soda is that it is very reminiscent of my all time favorite diet soda, diet mountain dew supernova, which unfortunately seems to be seasonal in my area and I can no longer find it. One key difference between these two, however, is that the diet sierra mist is caffeine free. This is actually a positive aspect in my book, because I can enjoy this at night with a late dinner, where as the diet dew (and other caffeinated sodas) I have to cut out around lunchtime or I'm stuck with a bout of insomnia (very caffeine sensitive). I definitely recommend picking this up even if you aren't a fan of most diet sodas. It doesn't have that artificial sweetener after taste that can be off-putting, and is actually very refreshing. This one is going to become a staple in my fridge for sure.

Review: Blue Bunny's 24 Karat Carrot Cake

I was really excited to try this flavor after being so impressed by the red velvet cake flavor (watch for review) also from the "Duff Goldman" line . I had hope that it may even live up to the hype of Ben n Jerry's Carrot cake flavor which unfortunately found its way into the "flavor graveyard" before I ever had the opportunity to try it. When my local shoprite had blue bunny pints on sale for a mere $1.88 each, I knew it was time to sample this offering and I happily tossed the pint into the cart.

Blue Bunny describes this ice cream as "Carrot cake flavored ice cream swirled with cream cheese frosting flavored low fat ice cream and carrot cake pieces". Phew, thats a long description, and as you can see from the picture above there are two distinct ice creams swirled together and possibly a carrot cake piece peeking out in the lower right of the pint. Before I get into the nitty gritty, I must admit Im not a huge fan of real carrot cake (sacrilegious? possibly) but In my opinion this didn't even taste like carrot cake in the slightest. The carrot cake base really reminded me of one of those oatmeal creme pies by little debbies, and the "cream cheese" base was so light and airy It could be mistaken for cool whip. It had no semblance of a cream cheese frosting flavor which was a huge let down. To top that off there were maybe 10 minuscule spongy, tasteless pieces of "carrot cake" in this pint that added nothing but a slight chew to the ice cream. 

The only saving grace of this flavor is that it has extremely friendly macros (nutrition info) and one could easily down a whole pint without much remorse (as I did myself). The whole pint clocks in at a mere 520 calories which is half off what a Ben & Jerry's or Haagen-Dazs pint would contain. In closing, I believe this flavor would be better off being called "oatmeal creme pie" or something similar and then maybe I wouldn't have come in with the high expectations I had. I didn't hate it, but definitely didn't love it. Just "meh". Probably won't buy again unless I need a low cal option.

Review: Florida's Naturals "Nuggets"

I stumbled upon these at Wal-mart in the pastry and fruit snack aisle (yes there's a whole aisle devoted to these treats at my local wal-mart) while picking up my weekly pop-tart fix, and threw them in the cart on a whim. 24 pouches for a mere $4.00 seemed like a decent enough deal, and I am a sucker for fruit snacks, so It was an easy sell. The fact they are 66% real fruit only added to their appeal and I was excited to test these out.

The "nuggets" themselves are about the size of your pinky nail and around 30 of them came in the pack. Upon popping a few into mouth I was greeted with bit of tartness which is quickly followed by a natural sweetness. Im really digging these things and try my best not to inhale the entire pack in one handful. The texture of these is unique, but I actually liked it a lot. They have a sort of waxy outer shell and the interior is reminiscent of a jellybean. The nutritional info is also very solid aspect of these treats, with just a handful of ingredients and real fruit being first on the list. At only 50 calories per pack they won't break anyones diet and could definitely curb a craving for sweets.

I was a fan of all of the flavors that came in this pack but strawberry was definitely my favorite. the other three (Apple, Blueberry and Orange) are all equally tasty and tied for second in my book. If you run into these I definitely recommend picking them up. They are a great lower calorie/more natural option than traditional fruit snacks, and could make a great addition to a bagged lunch. The side of the box also promotes a "sour" variety of these, which I'm interested in trying if I can find them.

Review: CPK BBQ Chicken Pizza

Described as "crispy thin crust pizza topped with white chicken, bbq sauce, smoked gouda, mozzarella. red onions and cilantro." Upon opening the box I noticed the toppings were plentiful and pretty evenly spaced, and nothing seemed to have been dislodged from the frozen puck during shipping, always a plus. I decided to bake it on a pizza tray, despite the instructions saying to put it on the bare oven rack. I don't trust whatever my dad has been cooking in there to be in direct contact with my pizza crust, so I played it safe. After 13 grueling minutes the pie was finally done and I was ready to indulge. I sliced it up into 8 slices even though I planned on eating the whole thing and dug in. The BBQ sauce has a nice smoky taste and a bit sweetness to it, which is really compelmented by the red onions and cilantro. Im not a huge cheese fanatic so I can't comment on the quality of the gouda or mozzarella, but they definitely work well on this pizza. The crust baked up perfectly and had a nice crunch, without becoming a cracker. Im a fan of thin crust, so I might be a little biased on this, but for me the less crust the better. Lastly, the chicken is of pretty mediocre quality and is similar to those frozen tyson strips (or any frozen chicken). The plentiful bits still taste pretty good though and thats all that really matters. I topped the pie with a nice sprinkling of crushed red pepper (a tradition I practice on every pizza I've ever eaten), and the little bit of spiciness only added to this flavors appeal.

 I purchased this on sale for $3.50  but I believe retail is usually around $7. If you can find it on sale I definitely recommend picking this up, but I'm not sure that I would shell out full price for it. It is very tasty, but its still a frozen pizza after all and for 7$ you could get a few slices and a drink down at your local pizzeria.

Review: Friendly's Graham Central Station

Described as "graham flavored dairy dessert with chocolate candy pieces and sweet graham swirl". Usually I'm not a huge fan of "dairy dessert" but this is an exception. Though it still has that very airy/light texture I usually despise, the flavor more than makes up for it. The ice cream base perfectly captures the graham cracker taste, and even leaves a grainy mouth feel as if you just bit into a real graham cracker. The chocolate pieces are pretty tasty and very plentiful, and provide a nice crunch. they are almost like "buncha crunch" if you remember those. The real treat of this flavor is the sweet graham swirl. Its extremely buttery and crumbly, but still holds up a nice crispness.This flavor blew my expectations out of the water, and gives me faith in friendlys brand ice cream (this was my first time trying their flavors). At only 1.99 for the half gallon this is an incredible value, and I highly recommend picking this up if you find it (it's "limited edition" so get on it).

I had 3 servings. It was enough to satisfy without getting to be overkill. I think 2-3 is the sweet spot with this flavor, more than 3 and it might become too sweet
