Episode #78: Unicorns & Darkness

Pretend chocolate that isn’t really chocolate and something that just doesn’t work. What’s sad is that the not chocolate gets our nod of approval and the actual chocolate doesn’t. These are troubling times, but you can rest assured we will protect you, nurture you, and coddle your little snowflake souls when selecting a confection is just too difficult of a task for you. You’re welcome.

Episode #77: m&m’s Macadamia Meh

This episode is brought to you by the fact that attempting to improve on something that’s just fine already isn’t all that great a thing, where we are concerned. I mean, sometimes it works, but then they did the newer Star Wars movies and robbed us all of hours of our lives. At least there’s The Mandalorian now, but it seems almost criminal that Disney has anything to do with a sci-fi (oh wait – Star Wars isn’t science fiction, it’s a fantasy saga in a dead culture). Star Trek is infinity better than Star Wars.

Episode #74: Gnawing On Tiny Babies

Well, here we are again, doing our thing for this little captive audience of you and only you. We sincerely hope you enjoyed yesterday. Christmas is a day of gorging on deliciousness and indulging in treats and gifts. But now it’s time to pay the piper you son of a bitch. You have a hangover. You have a bit of stomach ennui. Was it worth it? We sincerely hope so.

Episode #61: Chocolove & Lindthate

What a week! I’ve had to spend almost all my time editing video for upcoming top ten lists on The Ramen Rater – I haven’t done a review since last Wednesday! I forgot today was Thursday! I edited this one in about 30 minutes! Bang energy drinks are great!

Episode 52: About To Expire!

Episode 53: About To Expire!

We’ve found that unless you use the chocolate, it goes bad. Doing episodes once in a while just won’t cut it – nor will not looking at expiration dates on bars when we purchase them. These next two episodes are devoted to the chocolate that must be tried before it dies.

Episode 46: Toblerone, Skor, Ripple & Tiny Zits

Episode 46: Toblerone, Skor, Ripple & Tiny Zits

Oh stop it. We all get zits from time to time and yeah they range from tiny and no big deal to holy cow is that thing breathing/has it a control drone hovering above that has some kind of invisible control mechanism giving it intelligence. One of the items today seemed like a big zit – although very tasty. So yeah.

Hershey’s Skor – United States

Skor is a candy bar produced by The Hershey Company. It was first marketed in the United States in 1981 and later launched in Canada in 1983. “Skör” (with umlaut dots over the “o”) is Swedish for “brittle”, and the crown that appears in the product’s logo is identical to that found in the Swedish national emblem of Tre Kronor (“Three Crowns“). However, most read the name as “Skor” since you do not see the umlaut dots. Skor is the Swedish name for shoes. It was originally intended as the competition for the Heath bar produced by the Heath Company and, later, the Leaf Candy Company. Despite Hershey’s acquisition of Leaf, Inc., in 1996 and subsequent production of the Heath bar under the Hershey name, the company continues to market the Skor bar.

Episode 45: Weird Canadian M&Ms Flavors

So they did this here in the states but they used plain M&Ms. These are all peanut varieties. I would say that this is fascinating to some degree, but whenever companies do these off the wall flavors, they usually fall short. There’s only one truly clear winner in this mix and it’s pretty obvious. I don’t think there’s any chance 2 out of the 3 would ever pass muster. I could be wrong. I mean, they elected Trump so all bets are off.
