[product review] asian snacks part two
May 2nd, 2014 Mary, products Mary Desjean 0 Comments

Another edition of crazy Asian snacks! All of these are again from H Mart, where I like to browse the aisles looking for different snacks to try.

Yes! Chips! Why! All! The exclamation points?!

These are sort of like popped crunchy air chips. They are a bit sweet and a bit salty and I really liked the texture of these. Maybe the exclamation points have a point after all. Yummy!

I got these because they said “During my stay in caffe” which just …

[product review] crazy snacking with piattos, kikiriki drumstix and pastino
March 28th, 2014 Cheap Eats, Mary, products Mary Desjean 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 …

[product review & giveaway] soofoo (super good food)
December 13th, 2013 Giveaways, Mary, products Mary Desjean 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 …

san diego pretzel company + giveaway!
November 22nd, 2013 Mary, National City, products, San Diego County Mary Desjean 4 Comments

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, 2013 Mary, products Mary Desjean 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, …

[product review & recipe] organic peanut butter brookies
October 3rd, 2013 Mary, products, Recipes Mary Desjean 10 Comments

A few weeks ago I got an email from Stef of Canarsie Cookies asking if she could send me some of her “brookies”. What the heck is a brookie?! It’s like a brownie and a cookie got drunk one night and had a love child that emerged and they named their baby a “brookie”. Ahh, sweet, sweet drunken love.
The Brookie:

Stef sent me some brookies to try. It’s a fusion of peanut butter and chocolate that kind of turned into a …

aloha island lei – beautiful leis from hawaii!
September 19th, 2013 etc, Mary, products Mary Desjean 5 Comments

Earlier in the summer, I received these beautiful Hawaiian Leis from Aloha Island Lei. They must have figured out my favorite colors or something because I’m sure this is something I would have picked out on my own!
The one and only time I’ve ever been in Hawaii was on my way to the Philippines when I was 11 years old. We were supposed to have just a hour over layover in Honolulu, which dragged out to be much longer (I …

[product review] milton’s crackers + giveaway
September 6th, 2013 Mary, products Mary Desjean 14 Comments

Crackers! More specifically, these are Milton’s Crackers from the same folks who run Milton’s Deli in Del Mar. I’d already tried the savory crackers on my own so when I was offered the chance to try their new line of sweet crackers, I was pretty excited.

The new sweet line of crackers has five different flavors available for crunching and munching on. Let’s look at ‘em all, yes?

These are the Blueberry Multi-Grain crackers. You can see bits of the blueberry in …
