Sweet Success Power Blend

Sweet Success Power BlendPower Blend is a powdered form of energy boost that you mix into your favorite juice drink.

It caught my eye because right in the middle of the bag it says, "All Natural Energy". It seemed like it was trying to say that this stuff comprised of only "natural" energy, and not any kind of factory-processed energy, or artificial energy.

Energy isn't something you touch, nor is tangible. It's heat, is all it is. Isn't energy produced from a gasoline combustion the same energy that you might exert with your foot? So what does "All Natural Energy" mean?

Well, here at Junk Food Blog, we're just as well amused with saucing up ordinary junk with a great marketing gimmick. That's where we'll chalk this one.

Cheesy Bites Pizza

Cheesy Bites PizzaI saw a television commercial for this new pizza from Pizza Hut over the past holidays, and planned to blog it. Then I forgot about it. Today I was reminded by a flyer in my mailbox.

I continue to be impressed with the way the top pizza chains in this country continue to reinvent pizza. Cheesy Bites Pizza is nothing more than an extension on the old Stuffed Crust Pizza, except the crust is cut up into pieces making it easier to pluck off a bite full of soft warm bread with melted mozzarella goodness.

But hey, I love soft warm cheese filled breadsticks too. Why not just footlong breadsticks, maybe a bit thicker, to accomodate some cheese AND pepperoni slices inside? No need to add tomato sauce, just the cheese and pepperoni!

The Cheesy Bites Pizza is available already in limited runs in certain locations. It's set to go nationwide on Super Bowl Sunday.

Spicy English Cheese

Spicy English CheeseGranted I'm not an expert on cuisine, or on cheese, or on English fare. But when I saw the latest offering dubbed "Spicy English Cheese" from Pilgrims Choice, a brand of cheeses from British-based North Downs Dairy Co. Ltd., it drew a contradiction in me.

I always grew up thinking that English food was the most bland tasteless stuff seemingly consistent with the timeless routines and traditions of stodgy old England. Don't rock the boat with anything spicy or demonic! That would be hedonist!

Spicy English Cheese is simply made with bits of jalapeno peppers. Keep in mind that Pilgrims Choice has produced other varieties of tongue burning milk curds. I just continue to be amused at how globalization is knocking down age old traditions. Here in the United States, everything is borrowed from one culture or another due to our immigrant history. In Europe, they're getting it all back from us.

Asia Cigars

Asia CigarsGerman-based food manufacturer, Salomon Hitburger GmbH, has two new products on the market called "Asia Cigars".

They're pastry rolls filled with vegetables and chicken. They can be deep fried, baked, or steamed.

There are two varieties, "China Chik'n" is flavored with asian spices, and "Thai Chik'n" is more spicier with red curry sauce, coconut milk, and covered with sesame seeds.

The name "Asia Cigar" is perhaps innovative to me, and seems like an interesting way to get people to stop and take a look.

Pickled Seaweed Apricot Chews

Lotte Wakadama To Kombu FumiThat's effectively what these are. The new confection from Lotte of Japan called "Wakadama To Kombu Fumi" has a soft chewy outside formulated to resemble the taste of a popular snack called Pickled To Kombu, a type of seaweed. It actually does contain a powdered form of kombu.

Inside the candy is a liquid center with an apricot flavor.

Growing up in a Japanese family, I know seaweed is a pretty popular food source in Japan. But my mom always seemed to go straight for the real thing, chunks of salted kelp pieces. Just suck on 'em, and swallow them when all the flavor is gone. Things have to be so complicated now.

Still Recovering from a Motorcycle Accident

I haven't blogged much here because I've been stuck in a hospital recovery from a motorcycle accident I incurred on January 21. I was discharged home yesterday.

Long story short, I have a kidney contusion, fractured right wrist, a black & blue big toe, and scrapes along one side of my face. They put a cast on my wrist, which makes it difficult to type, and to make matters worse, I developed a really nasty allergic reaction to the cast. Go figure!

If you want more details, read the full story on my corporate blog.

I hope you check back more often, I'm gonna start blogging again, though it'll be slower for awhile. I want to thank Kelli for keeping Junk Food Blog going during my hospitalization!

Soda Pop Tops

Available in Cherry, Grape, Orange, Watermelon, Blue Razberry and Green Apple, the Soda Pop Top is designed to fit most standard plastic soda and water bottles.

They began shipping last August to 7-11 Stores and Dollar General Stores.

ChocoWine Reserve SeriesDC Duby, a pairing of two world-acclaimed patissiers and chocolatiers, announced their ChocoWine Reserve series.

ChocoWine Reserve is a blending of chocolate and wine, to form one very delicious chocolate confection. But it wasn't easy to perfect. Both chocolate and wine contain tannin. When the tannins of both are combined, "they create a very astringent and, to most, very unpleasant sensation in the mouth".

But being the world acclaimed chocolatiers that they are, they put their heads together and figured it out. Thus they bequeath to us, "ChocoWine Reserve", produced with a blend of the worlds' best cocoa bean: the exclusive Criollos. They're filled with a sumptuously smooth nougat made with premium wines, produced by leading Canadian wineries, and pure hazelnut butter.

The series contains five varieties:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon

  • Merlot

  • Pinot Noir

  • Riesling Icewine

  • Cabernet Franc Icewine
