Cherry Crush

cherrycrush.jpgI can remember drinking Orange Crush as a kid and how much I loved the taste. These days, I only drink diet soft drinks and Diet Orange Crush has become one of my favorites. While buying some Diet Orange Crush at Safeway recently, I noticed a drink on the shelf that I had never seen Ė Cherry Crush. Well, I love cherry flavored foods and drinks, so I just had to buy it! It has a very good cherry flavor and is not overly sweet as I was afraid it might be. It was very refreshing on the hot summer day that I drank it and was a nice change from the cola, lemon-lime, orange, and root beer soft drinks that I typically drink. Itís really too bad that thereís no diet version, because as delicious as it is, my body doesnít need all the high fructose corn syrup. But if you can handle sugary soft drinks, I recommend giving Cherry Crush a try.

Jack in the Box Really Big Chicken Sandwich

reallybigchicken.jpgWhatís better than a crispy chicken sandwich? A double crispy chicken sandwich, of course! Iíve eaten hamburgers with two, three, and four patties, but I donít recall ever seeing a double chicken sandwich before (not counting the bastard KFC Double Down Sandwich). Someone at Jack in the Box must have been thinking the same thing because new on their menu is the Really Big Chicken Sandwich. And by ďreally big,Ē they mean that itís made with two crispy chicken patties. Yes, the sandwich is pretty big, but itís not so big that most people wouldnít be able to eat it. The sandwich wouldnít work if the crispy chicken patties werenít really good, but thatís not a problem here. The patties on my sandwich were crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, and had a good flavor. Add to that some bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and ďmayo onion sauce,Ē and youíve got a very tasty sandwich that will satisfy a big appetite. Even if you donít love chicken sandwiches, I encourage you to give this one a try. Jack in the Box has a winner on their hands with the Really Big Chicken Sandwich and it easily deserves the highest Phoood rating.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

Pringles Multigrain Truly Original

pringlesmg.jpgMultigrain food products are the current rage. Everywhere you look, thereís multigrain this and multigrain that. I like to try multigrain products when I can to compare them to the regular versions. Pringles Multigrain Truly Original is the latest multigrain product that Iíve tried. Not surprisingly, they have the well-known Pringles shape and are packaged in the familiar cardboard tube. They donít, however, have quite the same crunch as you get in regular Pringles. They have a much different texture and are a bit crumbly. As far as the flavor, Pringles Multigrain just taste okay. Not good and not bad, just somewhere in the forgettable middle. Being a health-conscious junk food lover, I compared the nutritional information of Pringles Multigrain to regular Pringles. It appears the Pringles Multigrain may be a little healthier, but not much. Not enough to choose them over regular Pringles, thatís for sure. With a mediocre flavor and nominal heath benefits, Iím not compelled to buy Pringles Multigrain Truly Original again.
