I Just Came for the Food

All We Want for Christmas is… Hershey’s Gold

[Editor’s Note: In a special edition of Anastasia’s amazing food journal, I Just Came for the Food, she tackles the wonder that is Hershey’s Gold Caramelized Creme Peanuts and Pretzels! I wasn’t even a little interested, but now I want one immediately.] Recently, my husband brought home a Hershey’s Gold for me to review. Neither…

DEW-S-A! DEW-S-A! DEW-S-A!

My husband called me the other day to alert me of a new flavor of Mountain Dew, Mountain Dew*S*A. It’s a combination of three existing Mountain Dew flavors: White Out, Voltage, and Code Red. These flavors are all berry flavored Moutain Dews (raspberry, cherry, and “white cherry”). I was skeptical of the flavor combination given…

I Just Came for the Brightside Skittles

It seems that everytime I enter a convenience store, Skittles has introduced a new flavor mix. This time the new mix, Brightside, consists of “bright” colors and decidedly Summer-esque flavors. Without further ado… Kiwi Banana (yellow) – My favorite of all the flavors in this mix. I’ve always had a love for artificial banana flavor…

31 Days, Day 6: I Just Came for the Halloween Candy… Snickers & Hazelnut

It’s not hard to review a beloved candy bar. What is hard, is to review a beloved candy bar with a new twist! Lucky for me, most people know the joys of Nutella, and so Snickers & Hazelnut isn’t a strange leap for the Mars Company. You might think that this would taste like a…

I Just Came for the… VENOM

My journey to review these two ninety-nine cent energy drinks has been pretty interesting. It wasn’t hard to actually acquire said beverages (they are sold around the corner from my house at two different gas stations), but it was hard to obtain a promotional photograph of these new Venom Flavors. I emailed the Dr. Pepper…

I Came for the Food, Thirsty Thursday Edition… Part 1

Small Town Brewery has hit it out of the ballpark with their “Not Your Father’s” line of hard Sodas. These are gruit (German for herbs) inspired ales meaning they are bittered with roots, spices, flowers, and berries during the brewing process. So far they’ve produced these delicious treats: Root Beer, Ginger Ale (my favorite), and…

I Just Came for the Food: Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cups

This week is the triumphant return of I Just Came for the Food! I’m reviewing the Hershey Company’s new twist on two old favorites: Reese’s Pieces and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. It’s exactly what it sounds like-lots of Reese’s Pieces stuffed inside the peanut butter center of a Reese’s cup, and it won Best in…

I Came for the Watermelon

Watermelon Pop Tarts I don’t know if it’s the fact that pastries just are not typically melon flavored, or if the watermelon flavor is best left to colder treats. I do, however, know these Pop Tarts taste very mediocre. They aren’t bad, but they’re definitely not delicious. Generally, something is just off about them. The…

I Came For the Dew

Recently Mountain Dew released a new flavor, Black Label. The color of a merlot and tasting of berries, It’s a delicious addition to the ever growing Mountain Dew flavor family (Code Red, Voltage, White Out, Baja Blast, Game Fuel, etc.) However, it does not require much investigation to realize that Black Label is just normal…
