[product review] crazy snacking with piattos, kikiriki drumstix and pastino
March 28th, 2014Cheap Eats, Mary, productsmary 6 Comments

Doing a quick little post today on some uh… interesting looking snacks I picked up at H Mart recently. I’ve bought a lot of the weird snacks at various Asian markets to give away to other people and I find I don’t always try them myself… so I figured I’d start! Here’s what I picked up during this round of snacks.

Jack ‘n Jill’s Piattos was the first thing I picked up. I grew up with Jack ‘n Jill’s products. When …

[recipe/review] peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
March 3rd, 2014Mary, products, Recipesmary 4 Comments

Peanut butter is probably one of my most favorite things in life. Peanut butter + chocolate is one of those killer combinations that is so very hard to resist as well. If you want me to be in your favor, give me peanut butter and I’ll be in your corner. Enter a new, local product that’s hit the shelves around town recently called Pacific Beach Peanut Butter.

The peanut butter spread (which is a “spread” because “peanut butter” must contain 90% …

[product review] – DressTiez clothing protector bib
February 28th, 2014Mary, productsmary 12 Comments

I don’t know about you, but I am kind of a messy eater. For some reason, it’s seems hard to balance food on my fork and it barely gets into my mouth. I get teased for not knowing how to use chopsticks, but really, when it seems like I can barely use a fork sometimes it seems really extra silly for me to try and use chopsticks. I always get crumbs, or noodle bits, or bits of sauce all over …

[product review & giveaway] soofoo (super good food)
December 13th, 2013Giveaways, Mary, productsmary 77 Comments

I got a new product for you to take a gander at. It’s called SooFoo. I know this looks like its some kind of super crazy too-good-for-you-probably-tastes-like-dirt-and-sticks kind of thing. And I know it looks like that because I kind of thought that looking at the packaging…

BUT… I actually ended up liking it. My parents didn’t really like it, though. My dad thought it looked like there were crickets or bugs in it and that there was maybe some twigs in …

zooies cookies / san diego, ca
December 9th, 2013Central San Diego, Mary, productsmary 4 Comments

Not too long ago I had heard about this new cookie shop opening up… inside of a gas station! I was invited to the grand opening, but wasn’t able to make it in, but then I was offered a chance to come in and sample the cookies.
As if I could possibly turn down a cookie tasting. COME ON.

Zooies is inside of the APRO 26 (76 gas station) which is apart of the United Oil Co. and is located on Market Street …

my favorite childhood treat: pocky!
December 6th, 2013etc, Mary, productsmary 4 Comments

Simple post time! Mostly because I want to go finish this book I’m reading called Reboot. It’s basically a book about a girl who died and was “rebooted” and came back to life – now she’s stronger and faster before, almost kind of like a vampire… but not a vampire. More like a human devoid of emotions. There’s a thread of dystopia running through the novel and I have only a few chapters left until I’m done! Hence the short …

san diego pretzel company + giveaway!

I’ll bet that you had no idea that there’s a pretzel factory in San Diego! I’ll further bet that you didn’t know it sat in National City, amongst a few houses, and that they provide pretzels for many places who distribute to tons of places across the country (like Disneyland! And Karl Strauss! And stadiums and stuff!). And it’s all made here in San Diego!
The only reason I found out about the San Diego Pretzel Company is because I was …

[product review] chicago mix style popcorn / g.h. cretors
November 11th, 2013Mary, productsmary 1 Comments

For the most part, I prefer to make my own popcorn. There’s just something about freshly popped, buttered and salted popcorn that gets me a bit excited. The salty buttery treat is one of my all-time favorites so I’m always happy to try popcorn related products. I was recently sent samples of G.H. Cretors bagged popcorn in caramel flavor, cheese flavor and Chicago Mix.

What is “Chicago Mix” you might be asking? It’s a mixture of both caramel and cheddar popcorn, …

about this site

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
