Fun Food Friday: Found on the road edition

My wife and I have been talking about stopping at all the roadside markets and convenience stores that dot Route 13 for a few months now, and this past Saturday we finally decided to go through with it. Well, the northern half at least. We made the drive up to the Maryland/Virginia state line, pulled a U-turn, and got to adventuring. All told, we stopped at over a dozen tourist traps and gas stations, trying to make sure we picked up at least one item from each store. We found some interesting items, but in the end, there were just three items I found that I just knew I had to write about...

Boulder Canyon Turkey & Gravy and Pumpkin Pie potato chips.

Holy Mother of Turkey! Thanksgiving is almost here. I refuse to believe that it's been nearly three weeks since Halloween, the calendar be damned. I'm not that upset though, because I'll be celebrating one of my favorite holidays in just 4 short days. A day full of brie, and dips, and turkey and stuffing, and oh my god I'm getting hungry right now. I still have just under 96 hours before I can dive into T-day dinner, so I picked up some Boulder Canyon chips to try and take the edge off.

Blueberry Pie Oreo Cookies!

I like Oreo. I like pie. 7 times out of 10, if there's a choice between cake or pie, I'll go with the pie. Cake is good and all, but if I'm being completely honest, most of it is pretty boring. Delicious, but boring. Pie on the other hand, is a study in contrasts. You've got the warm, gooey filling, surrounded by that nice, crisp crust. A sweet kiss, enveloped in a savory hug. Oooh yeah..Add a dollop of whip cream or some ice cream, and you'll have a meal. Or a threesome. I'm not sure where my imagery is going at the moment, but you should keep reading and learn more about Blueberry Pie Oreo Cookies.

Hostess gets minty!

Hey everyone, it's Christmas! That means pumpkin spice is replaced with peppermint, and there's pine trees and snowflakes on every package. Keep on going and read about 700 words about minty snacks that usually aren't minty.

Shipyard Brewing Co. Melonhead

I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about this post. I tend to look for stuff that I might enjoy drinking or eating, though it doesn't always turn out that way. I've never had any requests for product reviews, especially from folks that haven't even seen my blog before. But, that's what happened when one of my coworkers heard I like to try oddly flavored foods and beverages and write sentences about them. I was given the task of trying out Shipyard Brewing Co's Melonhead, with the warning that it was "abso-fucking-lutely awful". Of course, I agreed to do it. Crap. Hey, at least I get a free beer out of it, right?

Sky Bar Zombie Food

Hello ladies and villains! It's your ol' pal Stunt Zombie, back from a short hiatus. I hate that I've missed so much of the month, but I was a little preoccupied with a slight case of marriage. That's right everyone, now there's a Mrs. Stunt Zombie. Who woulda thunk it? Anyhow, I plan on making the most of the rest of the month, starting now. Today, I'm gonna tell you all about Sky Bar Zombie Food.

Entenmann's Pumpkin Donuts

It's not officially Fall yet, but that hasn't stopped everyone from declaring that the Halloween season has begun. As much as I hate when stores jump the gun on putting out seasonal merchandise, I have to admit that I've gotten a little caught up in the Fall fever. I kept seeing pictures of the goodies that all of you have been finding on your shopping trips, and I have to admit I was getting a little frustrated by the lack of Halloween-ish product up in here. Well, my local stores are starting to catch up, so I'll be able to start showcasing my favorite finds. This time, I'm having a peek at Entenmann's Pumpkin Donuts.

Tastykake Kandy Kakes Summer Flavors!

I know summer is almost over, but I've wanted to mention these ever since I saw them back in July. So, put down the pumpkin spice flavored whatever, and stick around for a couple of paragraphs.

Doritos and Cheetos want to burn off your face.

I'm not sure what the world did to Frito Lay, but they've decided to make it their mission to melt all of our faces, and they've enlisted the aid of Chester Cheetah.

Krispy Kreme Glazed Key Lime Pie

My original intention was to post a lot more Star Wars stuff this month, but work and life have sort of taken the lead right now. So, in a fit of desperation, I'm tossing in random snack foods. In a bid to keep it somewhat Star Wars related, I've enlisted Greedo, the green skinned bounty hunter himself, to give me a hand.

Chili Dawg Wine

Not everyone is a wine drinker, and I can definitely understand that. I wasn't a huge fan of it myself, and I even worked at a vineyard for a few years. I like to think Chili Dawg is for those people that don't necessarily like the juice of fermented grapes, but still want to look like they're drinking like an adult.

I was first introduced to Chili Dawg during a trip to the future in-laws' house. As we sat around imbibing and talking, they told us we just had to try this new wine they found. Since they're much more experienced wine drinkers than I, I gladly accepted a glass. They said it was like nothing else they've ever tasted before, and I'm inclined to agree. I ended up finishing the rest of the bottle on my own, and spent the rest of the night passed out in a drunken stupor. Ah..good times..

I was lucky enough to get a bottle of my own this past Christmas. I never really noticed the label before, but it definitely has the look of something from a small operation. Starring what looks like Clifford in a blue suit holding a flaming glass of wine, most would likely steer clear of this wine. I definitely think they're missing out. Sure, it looks a little rough, but that's part of the charm isn't it? I guess I'd rather they spent their time crafting a tasty beverage, and let the fancy shmancy folks worry about their pretty labels. Besides, what it lacks in flash, it more than makes up for in flavor. As they say, you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover..

Chili Dawg is made up of a mixture of apple wine and chili pepper wine. Apples into wine, sure, I can get behind that. Turning fruit into alcoholic beverages is something people have been doing for thousands of years. Chili pepper wine though, that just sounds like insanity to me. I'm not even sure how something like that is made, but sometimes it's best to not know what's going on behind the curtain. If you're confused as to why there's a can of Easy Cheese sitting there, keep reading. It will all make sense soon enough.

One of the best things about Chili Dawg is its aroma. Popping the cork releases the scent of fresh apples, with a bit of jalapeno pepper mixed in. The flavor is akin to a lighter apple juice, and it has a sweeter taste that normal wines and ciders. It's definitely not syrupy, like other sweet wines tend to be. There's also a bit of spice, enough to remind you that there is chili pepper wine mixed in, but not so much that you'll burn your mouth. Chilled, I could see it making a nice refreshing beverage. However, the magic doesn't happen until it's mixed with a little Easy Cheese.

Now, I don't literally mean you mix the cheese and the wine together. Just the thought of what that would look like makes my stomach clench. No, what you do is spray a little Easy Cheese on the back of your hand. Hopefully your hands have been washed, because the next step requires you to lick the cheese off before taking a sip of wine. Now, I've always been told certain wines go great with certain foods, and I usually find this to be a load of bullsh*t. For the most part, a sommeliers main function is to upsell you on the more expensive wines offered in a restaurant. That's not to say that some wines don't taste better with certain foods, but for the most part that taste is entirely subjective. Just because some guy says that the $25 a glass wine goes best with the choked goose with ham jelly doesn't mean you'll absolutely agree. Still, even taking all of that into account, I can tell you Chili Dawg goes with Easy Cheese like peanut butter and jelly. Take that lick of cheese, follow it with a sip of wine, and your mouth is instantly filled with the taste of chili dog. Thankfully, your mouth won't actually be filled with chili dog, because that would just be weird, and utterly confusing.

Curious if this phenomena was isolated to just the Easy Cheese, I tried a couple different varieties. Sadly, the sliced American cheese product and cheddar didn't create the same magic. Maybe it's the difference in consistency, or perhaps it's the cocktail of chemicals that makes up spray cheese, but these just didn't work for me. Still good, but it's rather unappetizing having wine and cheese chunks floating around in your mouth. Lesson learned, stick with the cheese in a can.

Chili Dawg is available from Peaks of Otter Winery in Bedford, Va. You can actually order it online, but they can only ship it to Virginia addresses. For  everyone else, you have to go through a store licensed to ship out of state.

So, go get  some Chili Dawg wine, a can of spray cheese, put on some sexy music, and have yourself a party.

Combos Sweet and Salty!

I'm calling it now. 2015 will be a great year for my fellow junk foodies. I'm sure you're asking, "But Chris, how could you say that when it's still January?".  And I would tell you, "My point exactly". It's only January, and already Combos has thrown down the snack food gauntlet.

My official Christmas cookie: Royal Dansk Danish Butter Cookies

I'm typing this while I'm hopped up on various cold medications, so if I go off on a tangent about juicy leprechauns or how Star Wars Episode VII is obviously inferior because of its lack of goats, don't pay it any attention. Today we're here to talk about my favorite cookies for the holidays:  Royal Dansk Danish Butter Cookies.

Lance Pumpkin Cheesecake Nekot Cookie Sandwiches

I know Christmas commercials have already started airing, and you're all chomping at the bit for Black Friday, but it's still Fall, dammit! And that means pumpkin related foods are still fair game. With that in mind, I present to you, Lance's Pumpkin Cheesecake Nekot Cookie Sandwiches.

October Leftovers

Yet again, I only managed to cover about half the things I wanted to talk about this Halloween season. That being the case, I had a lot of leftovers that I wasn't about to let go to waste. This was a banner season for Pumpkin flavored junk food, and this stuff is just a small fraction of what was out there. There isn't much new about my pile of junk food, since I'm sure it's all been covered ad nauseum on numerous other blogs, but I guess there's room for one more quick look at Halloween and Fall themed goodies.

Kelloggs Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts

These certainly aren't a new item, but it's my first time having them. As the years go on, I'm finding companies like Kelloggs are getting better at reproducing off the wall flavors. Depending on the variety, Pop-Tarts can be hit or miss when it comes to how accurately they represent their flavors. Still, even when they're off, they're still on, know what I mean?

They look like every other variety of Pop-Tarts; They have a pastry crust, white frosting, and sprinkles. Kelloggs actually used fall colored sprinkles, and you could be forgiven for thinking your toaster pastries have been covered in candy corn shavings. There's no mistaking it, these are for Fall, and Fall only.

Thankfully, the flavor actually lives up to the name on the box. It definitely tasted like Pumpkin Pie, perhaps even a bit spicier. I have to admit, I never tried them cold, as I've found just about every Pop-Tart is better after a good browning in the toaster.

Hershey's Pumpkin Spice Kisses

I was a little apprehensive about trying these at first, since I have yet to talk to anyone else that likes them. They have an intriguing aroma, reminding me of a cheap dollar store scented candle. There's definitely a scent of Pumpkin Spice, though it definitely smells artificial. The Kisses are  a bit waxier than normal, which only forces me to think of those small incense cones I always find at the flea market. The flavor on the other hand, is rather bearable. There's a layer of Pumpkin Spice flavored chocolate surrounding a smaller white chocolate Kiss. I discovered that  letting them melt in your mouth rather than chewing them up improves their flavor by a factor of 17. I kinda wish Hershey's has made the whole Kiss out of the Pumpkin Spice chocolate, but maybe orange food coloring was too expensive for all that.

Kraft Jet-Puffed Pumpkin Spice and Candy Corn Marshmallow

This is the first time that I've seen Kraft release marshmallows with flavors specific to one holiday. Sure, they've released chocolate and vanilla ghosts before, but those can hardly be considered Fall specific flavorings. This year, we have two different varieties to choose from; Candy Corn and Pumpkin Spice. The Candy Corn marshmallows definitely have the look, but they really lack any discernible smell or flavor. Opening the bag, I was greeted with the scent of plain old marshmallow. At first taste, I thought I could detect a bit of candy corn flavor, but I might have to chalk it up to the power of suggestion. I packed my mouth full and still wasn't able to pick up anything other than "marshmallow".  The Pumpkin Spice fared a bit better, and I was able to actually pick up the scent when I first opened the bag. The taste was a bit subdued, but I think that's a result of it being infused into a marshmallow. The marshmallows also have a suitably wrinkled looked, and if they had faces on them, they would make great evil Jack O-Lanterns for your Halloween food diorama.

Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Turkey Hill has the honor of being the only pumpkin ice cream I was able to find in my little corner of nowhere. Even if I had found other brands' take on ice creamed pumpkin pie, I'd probably still name this one king of the freezer. The ice cream itself has a great flavor, but the cinnamon graham cracker swirl is what puts this one over the top. My first taste of that swirl immediately threw my tongue into seizures, it was so overcome by its deliciousness. I wish Turkey Hill sold the swirl by itself, because I would gladly plop down in a chair with a carton and a spoon. If they had included bits of pie crust and swirls of whipped cream in the ice cream, I would forsake all other foods and eat Pumpkin Pie ice cream for the remainder of what would inevitably be a very short life.

With all this pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice food scraps lying around, I thought I should put it to good use. Since I already had a bowl of ice cream sitting there, I started prepping some toppings.

Much like with Thanksgiving leftovers, I just chopped everything up, and tossed them on top of the mashed cream.

Okay, so I probably should have started and stopped with the Pop-Tart crumbs, but I'm a firm believer in using all parts of the animal. No junk food left behind.

Thus ends the Halloween season. It was a fun one, but like always, it went by way too fast. Now it's time to get ready for the season of Cringle, my other favorite time of the year. It should be full of food, toys, movies, stories, and most of all, fun.

October is here! Let's eat some Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds!

Holy crap! It's October 2nd! You know what that means, right? It means that I've been lazy the past few weeks, and this post is late. Well, there's no need for any pomp and circumstance, you all know what this month means: A plethora of junk food, scary movies, and whatever random items I can vaguely connect to the Halloween season. Having said that, let's get this month started with one of my new favorite snacks:

I don't think Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds are new to everyone else, but they're certainly new to me. I didn't start liking almonds until later in life, which was right about the same time they started coming out in crazy flavors. I daresay that I only noticed almonds in the snack aisle because I caught a glimpse of the word "wasabi" on the can as I passed them by. Though most of the flavors are delicious, eating one when you're expecting plain old "Almond" flavor is enough to cause anyone to fall over from shock. Think of the feeling you get when you get a big sip of Pepsi when you're expecting sweet tea.

Opening the can for the first time, you're hit by an aroma reminiscent of a Fall scented candle. I'm talking one the expensive ones, too. Like, Yankee Candle expensive. The almonds are coated in a variety of spices like cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and pumpkin powder. I've never heard of or seen pumpkin powder before, but I can only assume that it is made up of tiny, dust particle sized pumpkins. There's all kinds of gene splicing going on in food these days, I don't see why they couldn't create microscopic pumpkins. Any attempts to explain what it actually is, will be met with me violently ignoring you.

The taste is bit more subdued than some of the other flavors I've tried, and this is one variety that benefits from being savored more than immediately chewing them up. There's an initial hit of cinnamon and sugar, followed by a slight saltiness that fades into a cinnamon-y pumpkin spiciness. It's pretty complex for a snack food, and is best enjoyed small portions. Otherwise you experience some taste fatigue. Yesterday, after I ate a few handfuls, one of my co-workers commented that I smelled "spicy". I don't know if that's good or bad, but there it is.

I'm not going to say Planters went all out when they decorated the Pumpkin Spice Almond tins, but it's still a respectable effort. Pumpkins and falling leaves are about as "Fall" as you can get. It's not like you're going to expect to see this on the aisles in the middle of the spring. Once all the leaves have fallen, and the pumpkins have long since rotted away, you can bet you won't be able to find these hanging around store shelves. The tree is almost spooky enough to make this a Halloween limited edition, but there's just enough lighting to keep this from being a totally creepy scene.

Whether you love or hate the new Mr. Peanut, you have to admit he's a rather dapper fellow. I've never had much of an attachment for the character, but then again, he's never been on a cereal box, so that might be why. Maybe if Planters had included toys in their jars of nuts, I would have begged my mom to buy more of them. I kinda hoped they would have dressed him up in a costume, as a sort of nod to Halloween, but then it's hard to top being an anthropomorphic peanut in a suit coat. Here, he's just carting off a large pumpkin under his arm, and wearing a smile that either says, "I got a hell of a deal on this wonderful gourd", or "I better get out of here before the cart's proprietor returns". If he's trying to be inconspicuous though, he might want to take off the monocle and the top hat. Nobody wears those these days.

In the end, Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds are a win for me. They're pretty expensive ($6.99 a can!), but if you're like me, you'll eat half and forget about them for a few months. In that case, one can will probably last you until December.

It's a Peep-stravaganza!

I'll admit, I'm not a huge marshmallow fan. Actually, I should clarify that. I like marshmallows on my S'mores and in my hot cocoa. I even like peanut butter and Fluff sandwiches. But, when it comes to snacking on marshmallows out of the bag, no thank you. The one exception to that rule is when Easter Sunday rolls around. Then, it's time to eat some Peeps.

I'm not sure when Peeps became a staple of Easter baskets, but it's hard to remember a time when they weren't sitting there in the stringy plastic grass, looking like they were waiting gleefully to be devoured. They started out as little chick shaped marshmallows, sprinkled with yellow sugar. Eventually, Peeps were released in bunny shapes, then more colors were added. Now there's hardly a holiday that doesn't have its own line of Peeps. Christmas, Halloween, even Valentine's Day all have their own varieties. Even the 4th of July has it's own flavor now. They're Patriotic Vanilla Creme if you're curious. 

When I saw these varieties just waiting for me in the snack aisles of WalMart, I couldn't help but toss them in my cart. Let's give them a taste, shall we?

Up first, we have the Bubble Gum flavored Peeps. This flavor almost seems like a no-brainer. It's easy to replicate, and all you have to do is add a little pink dye to the marshmallows, and sprinkle them with pink sugar. They certainly have a gum aroma, not unlike a package of Bazooka Joe. If someone handed me one of these, I would almost expect them to actually be gum, until I took my first bite at least. The comparison to Bazooka Joe can be carried over to the flavor as well, except that it lasts more than 5 seconds in the Peeps.

Next up, we have Blue Raspberry. If we were ranking these based on color alone, BR would have taken first place right out of the gate. With blue sprinkles covering a pleasantly blue marshmallow, it's my favorite color squared. The blue raspberry flavor was pretty strong. There's an initial hit of flavor when the sugar first hits your tongue, then you get blasted once the marshmallow starts to soften. I actually had to rinse my mouth a couple times to get the "blue raspberry" scraps that were hiding in there. I'd start to eat something else, and "BAM!", I'd get another shot of raspberry. It really sticks with you. 

There's a blurb on the back of this package proclaiming that these Peeps are "pink inside". I'll let you interpret that one as you like. I was originally going to say that there was a missed opportunity by not having little "seeds" all over the outside of the sour watermelon Peeps, but then I realized watermelon seeds are on the inside. I guess they can save that little tidbit, just in case they ever release strawberry flavored Peeps. I don't quite understand why candy manufacturers continue to make sour watermelon candies, when watermelons are anything but sour. I'd love to see someone make real watermelon flavored candy, where you stood the chance of getting a piece that just tasted like water. Speaking of taste, these are indeed sour, though no more so than any other melon flavored candy. They actually reminded me of Jolly Ranchers.

Also, these kind of look like caterpillars when viewed from behind. 

Cake batter seems to be gaining popularity as a flavor. It's started popping up in everything from ice cream to M&M's, and now we can add everyone's favorite marshmallows to the list. The marshmallow has a bit of tint to it, giving it the appearance of batter. That's coated by light blue sugar, which has small, sparkly bits of sugar mixed in. It kinda looks like the Peeps fell in a pile of glitter. I found that this flavor was the most subdued, and it didn't really taste all the different from the regular Peeps to me. 

Last we have the Sweet Lemonade Peeps. Since the normal Peeps are already covered in yellow sugar, they opted to coat these in white sugar, with larger yellow flakes. Otherwise, people would think they got ripped off when they tear open their pack of Sweet Lemonade Peeps and see normal looking ones sitting there. The lemon flavor isn't as bitter as I had expected. Most lemon candies are sour enough to nearly turn your face inside out. These could almost be considered, pleasant.

Also, 10% of the price goes toward funding child cancer research, so make sure you buy a bunch of them. 

It's hard to pick a clear winner out of the group, but if I had to go for one, it would be the Blue Raspberry. I can't help but love that shade of blue, and the taste wasn't too bad either. 

They also turn your mouth a deep, dark blue, so there's that as well.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreos

Oreos are my favorite cookie. There are no exceptions to that statement. I'll buy other cookies, but I almost always end up thinking, "Man, I really should have gone with the Oreos". The same goes with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, known from now on as PBC's. I have some candies that are seasonal favorites, but the rest of the year, the Reese's PBC's are king. That's why, when I heard that Nabisco was going to combine two of my favorite treats, I immediately drove to the store in search of them. Then I went home, re-read the article, and discovered I still had two weeks before they were available. I was so excited, I wasn't even upset about wasting 7 dollars worth of gas.

Christmas Mood Table

For some reason, I'm really having a rough time getting into the holiday spirit this year. Maybe it's because we're pretty much broke, or perhaps it's stress from worrying about family and work. Whatever the reasons, I was finding that I had to force the happy feelings the past couple of weeks. Today, I decided to take back my holiday cheer. I was determined to find a way to bring those feelings of joy back to the surface, but I couldn't figure out how. Then it hit me, I needed a mood table.

I wish I could make the claim that I invented the concept of a mood table, but I believe that honor goes to Matt from Dinosaur Dracula. Humble as he may be, his Halloween Mood tables are something to behold, and I'm sure they could put anybody in the Halloween spirit. I decided to take that concept and apply it to the Christmas season. I did a quick search, but I couldn't find any examples of  Christmas Mood Tables. Does that mean I'm the first?

It actually took several tries before I got everything arranged just so. It's still not quite perfect, since I'd love to add some more colorful objects, but I think it's looking pretty great right now. Let's have a closer look, shall we?

This little Santa toy was once filled with candy. Now he just appears to be filled with fear. That's what happens when you tell Bob the Zombie Viper he's on the naughty list. It's not his fault he did all those nasty things. He's really not such a bad guy, he just smells that way.

I have to admit, after reexamining the photo, it's quite possible he's just trying to get away from Timber. Santa needs to realize, just because the wolves at the North Pole are friendly, doesn't mean the ones down here will be as amicable.

This is what I like to call the "treat corner" of the table. Up front we have Gingerbread M&M's, Gingerbread Peeps, and Rudolph gummies. Obi Wan Kenobi looks like he really wants an M&M, but I'm sure he thinks this is some kind of test. Just eat one already Ben. I promise they won't make you go to the dark side.

My, aren't we a happy looking Santa Claus. I can't help it, every time I look at this guy, I can't keep myself from grinning. Unfortunately, I have to make sure he stays turned off. Otherwise, the slightest touch on his belly sends him into a hysterical fit, and he'll knock everything off the table. Oh Ticklish Santa, you bring so much joy and so much aggravation at the same time..I'm not sure if you can tell, but Ticklish Santa is also sitting on several of my favorite Christmas Movies. Now I'm realizing I probably should have stored the discs in a binder, because I'll have to take part of the display down to get to the movies. Crap.

At the top of the mountain, we have the lair of Stunt Claus. Or is it Santa Zombie? Zombie Claus? I guess I should have established that at his creation. Either way, he has plenty of friends, with Wampa, unfortunate skeleton, and a couple of snowmen to keep him company. What are his plans for the Christmas season? Nothing too evil I hope...

Here we see Iron man putting the finishing touches on the tree. He actually came up with a formula to determine which decorations should go where. The result is the most precisely decorated tree in history. Behind him you can see more of our Christmas movies, and next to those you can barely see a Christmas Sing-a-ma-jig. It's just watching, waiting for the perfect moment to jump from behind the tree and sing "Jingle Bells" at somebody.

High up in the tree, Snake Eyes is keeping watch, just in case any of Cobra's secret elves try to come in and sabotage the lights. He may not seem like the Christmas-y type, but oh boy..does he ever get pissed when someone tries to mess with the tree lights.

It seems the Storm Trooper got a little confused, and mistook Dodger from Oliver and Company for his Tauntaun. "No wonder they lost the war", muttered a bewildered Rebel Trooper under his breath.

It seems like wherever you go, there will always be somebody causing trouble. Knowing Mumm-Ra, this is all his doing. Or, I could be wrong, and it's all part of a snowball fight gone bad. Either way, this is probably going to end badly for Cobra Commander, unless he's smart enough to run away from this one.

I have to admit, after I finished the table, I was definitely feeling more of the ol' Christmas spirit. It's almost like those twinkling little lights burned through whatever fog that was keeping me from getting into the holiday. So, if you're feeling down in the dumps, or just can't get into the swing of things this year,just do what I did. Arrange a bunch of random Christmas items on a table top, and watch your aggravations just dissolve away. Oh, and if you do put together a Christmas Mood Table, I'd love to see it.

Have a happy rest of November!
