NEW Different WEIRD and Special Edition Foods out there August 2017

 

There is ALWAYS something new, different, weird or special edition out there in the world of food. I never know what I’ll see when I go to a store and here are just a few of the things I saw recently. Here are Lay’s BLT “limited” potato chips. They are suppose to taste like a bacon , lettuce and tomato sandwich. How does that sound to you?

Lay’s also has out “limited”Lime and Sea Salt Flavored Potato Chips. I like lime but potato chips???? Don’t know?????

Lay’s “limited” 40% less fat sweet chili and sour cream. They had me at 40% less fat and sweet chili…….but lost me at sour cream….and really lost me with sweet chili and sour cream together.

To my surprise Tostitos Corn Chips also offers “limited chips” Here are Sopapilla Cinnamon and Sugar Corn Chips. Who knew that these were out there?

Italian Herb Ritz Crackers. Now these could be a good appetizer. A little Cheese, a slice of tomato and a basil leaf. It will be a little crunchy pizza.

Pop Chips are potato based snacks that are slightly healthier being low fat and not fried. These are the Crazy Hot Flavor. I purchased this bag and it wasn’t crazy hot…….My bag was CRAZY TART, Forking SOUR and Acidic. I think I Forking got a defective bag.

Speaking of defective……If there is something out there that is defective somehow I seem to find it.

Landies Milk Chocolate Pretzel Bites with peanut butter drizzle. These Pretzels look like they taste amazing……….but they don’t taste the way they look…..Oddly they taste like fruit…..sort of like artificial cherry…..maybe with a touch of mint in the drizzle….I ate the drizzle and the coating over the pretzel separately to figure it out. I contacted this company on the web with the lot number inquiring about these pretzel bites but nobody felt the need to contact me back….

Fork Them!

I was excited when I saw Krispy Kreme Glazed something that looked like chocolate bar….Thinking about Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Chocolate…..BUT WTFork……THESE ARE COFFEE…..oh well not for me.

It seems Americans can’t go on without new flavors of Oreos. Here is Jelly Donut. This one sparked my interest but I didn’t purchase them……. just like I don’t purchase any Oreo for me since I don’t like that cheap store bought cookie taste. But I am interested….too bad I’ll never Forking find out how these cookies taste

.

Here is something New and Unique. Bake in your oven Pillsbury Smores Rolls with Marshmallow Cream…. I don’t know why but I think Klingons eat them…?

Macadamia Milk…who knew!

Coldstone Creamy is a popular American Chain of Ice cream Parlors. How the Fork can you bottle a milk shake without it being melted…..?

Tampico is a popular Mexican Hot Sauce. Who knew they make beverages too?

Sunny D is a popular breakfast drink or a sort of artificial substitute for orange juice. Now they make substitute orange and strawberry flavored gushing candies………..

Fruit flavored Gumies that look like bandages.

Key Lime Pie FILLED? Twizzlers candy. Sound fun and tasty.Might be good?

Sriracha Diced Tomatoes and Red Chilies…OH MY!

Whataburger is an American Fast Food Burger Place that I have never been too. They are selling their own Ketchup now at the grocery store.

Three kinds of Apricots who knew?

I thought this was mighty weird. Something called Cocktail Caviar. It’s Blueberry and Wildflower infused beads in vodka. I guess you use a little and garnish a fancy dessert with the “Caviar” maybe it’s fun to decorate a cannoli with this “caviar?” Or maybe you just want to eat it like a Forking Tub of ice cream?  I thought it was weird and it reminded me of something you might remember from ten years back.

Remember orbitz? I tried to drink this once because it looks really cool but I can’t stomach it. FORKING TRUTH! I couldn’t get one sip down. It just turned my stomach.

AS THE STOMACH TURNS…………….

The most different thing I came across at the Asian and International Market is a WTFork…

Sourleaf…Trust me you don’t want to try this one unless you have a hankering for something that is foul tasting, a mild narcotic, dulls pain and makes pink foam in your mouth and possibly turns your teeth to a color of blood red…….Sourleaf….it’s not for everyone.

Well that was the NEW, DIFFERENT, WEIRD and Special Edition for August 2017. I don’t know WTFork I’ll come across next month.

NEW DifFERent Weird and Special Edition Foods out there July 2017

 

There is ALWAYS something New, Weird, Different or Special Edition out there in the world of foods. I never know what I’ll see when I go to a store. Here are some of the foods I’ve seen recently. Here is FORKING Cookie Dough in a Forking jar. I know most people enjoy eating raw cookie dough but this is nuts…….cookie dough is not food to me…Cookies are food…(sort of)…..How the fork would you feel about pizza dough in a jar……

Pre – portioned Cookie Dough for people who are nuts about cookie dough………..note package reads nut free….

Cinnamon Bun Protein Bars seem strange to me and makes me crave an actual cinnamon bun.

Now here are Cinnabon Buns that you can bake at home in your own oven…….Confusing to me because it reads on the package Pillsbury….Um Pillsbury doesn’t make Cinnabon Brand……..or…..do they?

Here’s another odd one. Cake Batter Cookies. Aren’t cookies made from cookie batter? Not cake batter??????

The weird doesn’t stop. Who the FORK would dream up Wedding Cake Gum?

Blood Orange and Coconut Lime Velamints. I don’t know about blood orange mint? Coconut lime mint might taste sort of Asian?

Bacon Buttermilk Pancake English Muffins????? Pancake/Muffin..?????? I don’t know????? Would  you still put bacon on it???? Or would that be oink kill?

Imitation Abalone in a can….Who the Fork knew this existed.

Pollock Burgers! I never came across a Pollock Burger Before! Pollock is an extra light almost tasteless fish that is very inexpensive. I would expect that these burgers might have little flavor of any kind and should be the lightest protein you ever had. I guess you can flavor them anyway you desire.

Famous American Candy Flavored Hot Cocoa…Um…Junior Mint might be good but Tootsie Roll doesn’t even taste like Chocolate…WTFork

It’s possible I might have had Kellogg’s Smorz Cereal here before but I blocked this one out….

Triscuit Crackers in new Fig and Honey and Ginger and Lemongrass Flavors….???

Good Thins Beet, Balsamic Vinegar & Sea Salt and also Wheat with Ancient Grains. Umm sounds tasty.

Bacon Habanero Pretzel Crisps…?

Cracker Barrel Brand Cheese….Macaroni and Cheese Dinners..?

Duncan Hines Microwave Cup Sized Cakes…….Mix that you prepare in your microwave..?

Hope Brand Thai Coconut Curry Hummus is pretty FORKING Different and possibly WEIRD! …..I hope it taste good…..

Who the Fork would ever think I’d come across Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce Croutons….What salad dressing do I Forking use with these croutons????

Here’s Seafood Mushrooms….I purchased these. They actually smell and taste like sweet seafood. I actually like them very much!

That was the New, Weird, Different and Special Edition items out there for July 2017. I don’t know WTFork I’ll come across next month.

There is always something NEW, WEIRD, Different or Special Edition out there in the wonderful world of food! I never know what I’ll come across when I go to store. Here are some Cannoli Chips in two different varieties. A Cannoli Shell traditionally holds sweetened ricotta type of cheese….These Cannoli Chips might be like Cannoli’s without the filling….

It’s kind of odd that Cooking Light Magazine sells food to me. It is even more interesting that Cooking LIGHT sells fried chips…..But they are multi grain I noticed….

Wow! I’ve never seen Irish Potato Crisp. Bag on the left is Shamrock and Sour Cream Flavored and bag on the right is Irish Farmhouse Cheese and Onion.

They are flavoring Macadamia Nuts now. Here is Maui Onion Flavored Macadamia Nuts.

Twinkies has invaded the Ice Cream Section with Sponge Cake Crumbles and Cream Flavored Frozen Cones.

Latte Flavored Puddings……maybe these pudding are “X” rated and for adults only???

Welch’s the Jelly People now put Chia Seeds in the Grape and Strawberry Jelly….This I don’t understand…..If I wanted Chia Seeds with my Jelly I would just sprinkle the Chia Seeds on….

I note that I am a Dog Enthusiast but even I think this is Forking Strange.

A kit to decorate Dog Bones for your Dog’s Birthday.

It’s a little strange even if you are lonely and have nothing else to celebrate.

Here is a decorated Happy Birthday Pup – Pie for a Male Dog. This is also a little strange.

Birthday Cake Bites for Dogs…..?

Maybe this one s the most Forked up?

Peanut Butter Pie in different packaging…

Spicy Sweet Beef Trail Mix??????

Chocolate Bar with added Olive Oil??????

Pumpkin Flat Bread sounds kind of tasty….

These Vegan Burgers look like they went MOO at one time!

Maybe this is the weirdest of all?……..Seedless Cantaloupes…..I never have seen them before. I didn’t purchase one so I don’t know what it looks like inside. That was the New, Weird, Different and Special Edition Foods for June 2017. Who the FORK knows what I’ll come across next month.

NEW! Habanero Lime Topper….Sounds delicious but noticed many chemicals and weird things in the ingredients…… 🙁

Chick Peas are flavored snacks these days. Here are Bombay flavored and Falafel flavored Chick Peas.

Here’s Korean BBQ Chick Peas. I never imagined coming across Korean BBQ Chick Peas.

I think it’s odd to flavor Walnuts with Honey Mustard but these honey mustard walnuts might be tasty in a salad?

The FORKING Weirdest thing I came across was just Forked up.

I came across these bags marked bananas……

Well that was the New, Weird, Different and Special Edition for May 2017. Who knows WTFork I’ll see next month.

There is always something new, different, weird and special edition out there. I never know what I’ll come across when I go to the store. Here is Captain Crunch’s Cinnamon Roll Crunch Cereal. The Cinnamon Roll pictured on the box looks hot and delicious but the cereal pictured on the box looks more like Forking kibble for livestock to me and not cinnamon rolls.

Chika Fruit. Never heard of that fruit. Looked it up and I get different descriptions. One website states it’s the chewing gum fruit. Another says it a grainy, sweet but with lots of tannins kind of tropical fruit and another website states that the fruit taste similar to a pear…I didn’t try it so I don’t know.

Came across this very large King Oyster Mushroom. I thought it was weird, strange and  different….

Special Edition – Forking Weirdest Food Recall Ever! Frozen PUTTATOES

 

That’s FORKED UP!

Over the weekend I noticed that we had many recalls on well known popular brands of foods this week. Campbell’s Soup (mislabeled ingredients), Lay’s Potato Chips (possible salmonella), Banquet Brand Frozen foods (Salmonella) A bat in packaged salad and a scorpion in another packaged salad..Rubber in a brand of bread I never heard of…..and the FORKING STRANGEST thing I ever heard was about the recall for McCain Hash Brown Potatoes. (puttatoes) for being harvested with golf balls.

Golfballs don’t look like potatoes. How can this happen?

FORKING GOLFBALLS mixed with Potatoes = PUTTatoes!

Do we par-boil the Puttatoes before grilling?

I heard on the news that a golf course is next to where the potatoes were harvested and the machinery gathers them both.

This past Friday according to www.GolfballDigest.com McCain Foods U.S.A. announced on the U.S.F.D.A.’s website of a voluntary recall of two different brands of hash browns. “Despite our Stringent Supply Standards The Golfball Materials “May Have Been Inadvertently Harvested” with potatoes.

Forking Weird Food News of this Week 4-20-2017 Frankenfood and Oy Caramba

 

This is FORKED UP!

Picture via www.Pinterest

This week in the world of food news two stories caught my attention the most. One is that Del Monte Fresh Produce Co. has genetically engineered the Pink Pineapple and it’s been approved by the FDA. They promise a sweeter, less acidic and just as nutritious pineapple. I can’t help but wonder if the almighty would approve?…….. What would he say?…… “You screwed up my pineapple?”

The other story is that Tony Boloney’s $80.00 Taco Pizza ($10.00 a slice) is a sensation! It’s a pizza that’s loaded up with a variety of tacos and a big pile of dip of sour cream and guacamole.

Picture via www.geekologie.com

Tony Boloney Pizza has only two locations in New Jersey. One is in Hoboken (North New Jersey) the other is in Atlantic City (South New Jersey). They said on the news that people are driving from all over the country and as far as Mexico to try this pizza………..

Bugs in Food that You PAY for and Bean Pie…..Who Knew

 

Part of El Panzon Y Frida Restaurant Menu located in Old Town Scottsdale AZ

When I hear about a new restaurant or a restaurant that is new to me the first thing I do is look at the menu to see if the menu appeals to me. I found out about this new restaurant that recently opened in Old Town Scottsdale AZ called El Panzon Y Frida. I saw Fish Cakes on the menu and thought I haven’t had a Fish Cake in ten years since I left the east coast. I could sure go for a fish cake………. but not the one on El Panzon Y Frida’s Menu……… as it’s Buffalo Worm Crusted……… I do admit I have some food hang ups and don’t partake in eating worms or bugs. I am aware that in many countries it’s a part of normal life to include insects in one’s diet but I have to be honest and admit it’s not something I’ll ever relish.

Usually if you find a bug or a worm in your food the restaurant takes it the Fork off your bill and apologies. On this menu you pay for worms in your food…who knew?

www.elpanzonyfrida.com

I also looked at a Fish and Chip Restaurant called Mandy’s Fish in Chips with three locations in Phoenix AZ. I saw……

Mandy’s Fish and Chip Restaurant in Phoenix AZ

Bean Pie….. I never heard of Bean Pie. WTFork is Bean Pie?

I read on Wikipedia that Bean Pie was created in the 1930s and is of African American Muslim Cuisine. The Pie is made of mashed beans that are usually navy beans but can also be great northern or pinto beans in a custard based pie similar to pumpkin pie.

I don’t know how they are but I can tell you that they don’t feel hot and I don’t see any Forking marshmallows in or on them.

fullsizeoutput_31dc

Conversation Reese’s cups…..?

Red Velvet KitKats…..?

Southwestern Queso(cheese)  flavored Lay’s Potato Chips

Beer ‘n Brats flavored Lay’s Potato Chips…..? Would you buy these?

Wise Brand Food Truck Inspired Potato Chips in Loaded Chili Cheese Dog and Beef Barbacoa Tacos Flavors….Kinda neat…and they tell the story about the food trucks these chips are inspired from.

Here are Limited edition Cranberry Muffins. They’d be good with cream cheese or as a turkey sandwich.

Unusual flavors of oatmeal. Here are Apple Cheddar Rosemary oatmeal, Vanilla Chai oatmeal and Lemon Ricotta Pancake oatmeal. I don’t know how these flavors will work out.

Spiced Sweet Potato Chips that are spiced with Red Pepper and Cumin…Ummm

I never came across Adirondack Red Potatoes before. These I had to try. They are all Red Potatoes. They are very flavorful and have an earthy potato taste. These potato chips have great potato flavor.

BBQ Black Bean Corn Chips

Sea salt caramel raisins. Not for me…………
