A terrible commercial won’t stop me from buying Pizza Pops

27Feb07

Here’s an underrated pleasure of consumerism: going to a grocery store you don’t ordinarily frequent and finding products you like in varieties you hadn’t previously known were available. Today, I picked up the following:

  • Tandoori Sizzler Doritos
  • Fudgsicle Fury Breyers ice cream
  • Schneiders Cheeseburger Hot Stuffs
  • Pillsbury Three Meat Pizza Pops

Yes, I know how awful all this stuff is for me. But on the other hand, trying new things is good for you.

    Be careful with that Fudgsicle Fury, that shit sounds dangerous.

  2. I thought it sounded like a pretty angry ice cream. But it just tastes like chocolate. It turned out that the dangerous item was the Schneiders Cheeseburger Hot Stuffs. When It bit into one, a blast of scalding hot air burned my face and I had to ice it for the next couple of hours. They taste pretty good though — like McDonald’s cheeseburgers.

    Now THAT’S a manly scar story!

    I just tried those Lays Spicy Curry chips… you have to get a bag of those if you’ve never taken the leap.

    It is like samosas in a bag, it is truly freaky.

  5. Oh, I know. They’re fantastic. I’ve been raving to my family about them, only to be met with perplexed looks. I guess Toronto was a test market or something, because they don’t seem to have been available in small towns. I hope that injustice has been or will be corrected.

    Also, I notice that Tandoori Sizzler Doritos seem to be getting a promotional push now (there’s a commercial airing as I type), so I’m hoping they’re here to stay.

    Also, while I’m giving reviews, the Schneiders Cheeseburger Hot Stuffs tastes like a McDonald’s cheeseburger. It just burns like McDonald’s coffee.

      what!! those cheeseburgers…..they’re the worst tasting stuff i’ve ever tasted by far. And you can’t even try to imagine what i’m ready to eat.

    Well, they seem to have full penetration down here in my neck of the woods(in the deep south of Ontario), so it seems likely that they are getting a bit more of a push now.

    I also tried those Tandoori Doritos after I had the Spicy Curry Lays, and the Doritos come off rather poorly in that comparison.
