    Ezekial 4:9 Cereal

    I think I have a new favorite cereal. I bought a box of Ezekiel 4:9 at Publix last month in the organic / all natural aisle, aka the really expensive section ; ) This cereal is made from:

    Organic Sprouted Whole Wheat, Organic Malted Barley, Organic Sprouted Whole Barley, Organic Sprouted Whole Millet, Organic Sprouted Whole Lentils, Organic Sprouted Whole Soybeans, Organic Sprouted Whole Spelt, Filtered Water, Sea Salt.

    I'm betting that right now that most of you either thought "Yuck ! Pass the Lucky Charms !" or "*doe eyes* Mmmm, wheat, barley...." Count me in the second group. This cereal tastes like a slightly less crunchy version of Grape Nuts. And it's flourless, too.

    The price is rather steep, but I would buy this cereal again. The taste is worth it.

    York Mints

    I recently spotted a display of York Mints at Food Lion. They were nearly $2 : P But I decided to splurge a little and give them a try.

    The candies consist of a white mint shell, a layer of chocolate and some more mint filling. Two pieces was enough candy for me. York Mints are not one of those candies like Snow Caps or M&Ms that you want to keep popping into your mouth. It's not a matter of tasting bad; the candies taste decent enough. They're just lacking in something. I would have to agree with this from

  • ...They’re not quite strong enough to be a breath mint and not satisfying enough to be a candy...

    Wrigley's Kona Creme Gum

    I received a pack of Wrigley's Kona Creme gum from my mother recently. The pack had been sitting in her purse for a couple days because "I tried it the other day and didn't like that gum. It leaves a bitter aftertaste. You know I don't drink coffee." I don't drink coffee either. I love coffee ice cream, coffee candies and those coffee smoothies from Barney's, but not the actual drink.

    I ended up liking the taste of the gum. It left a pleasant, definitely not bitter coffee taste in my mouth. Just one problem, though: With mint gum, you want the taste to linger. With coffee flavoring, I want to wash the taste down with a pastry. Who wants to go around with coffee breath all day ? This product would definitely fall under novelty candy for me. It's nice to try once, but I wouldn't buy it again.

    **The coffee gum was not listed in Wrigley's website. What I did find was this explanation and review from

  • Impulsive Buy

  • ....For those who don’t know, Kona coffee is considered to be one of the premium coffees in the world and it comes from a little town called Kona, which is a tourist destination, much like Oahu’s Waikiki or Maui’s Lahaina, except significantly smaller and without any transvestite prostitutes....
