Pretty much all the Bai drinks. **** is horrible.

Oh, and I dunno why, but I sometimes talk myself into buying some "flavored" sparkling water thinking oh maybe this one will be different. Nope, still tastes like kool-aid where someone forgot to add sugar with an alkaseltzer in it.

Bai are good! Well...some of them.

I really like the new tea one. Sorocco sweet. Strawberry lemonade is good.

I get the store brand "Black Cherry" flavor. All the other flavors are not so much.

Addicted to it almost...

I hate to say it, but I tried Costco sushi once. Once...

I used to hate them, now I'm a fan. They are best fresh and not overcooked, with a slight bit of crunch left in them. Once they get mushy they're meh

Horrible. Got some once at a hockey game. They said “You’re from the South, it’s like a staple!”

They were awful and didn’t get through more than a handful. Never again

Give me roasted or at least raw

People who want to make sure it is preserved for a month of shelf life.

Got some heat and eat mini spinach knishes at Wegmans since I'm a spanikopita fan and generally like a knish. Things were dry as heck and. Makes me wonder if there is a good prepared knish out there or if fresh is the only way.

They had the appetizer triangles and the round pie version which I ended up getting. Not bad, and I finished it off that same day.


I'm curious how that round 5 cheese spiral tastes.

Starting to disagree. Culinary team at work does some amazing work with kale. Several of their sides are nothing short of amazing. Sauteed with lemon and garlic = zomg.

Kale was gross until I incorporated it into mashed potatoes. Chop it fine, then boil it for 12ish minutes in some salted water and drain it. Then add them to the taters you've prepped in the meantime for simmering (don't boil potatoes for mashing; just simmer in well salted water, barely covered). Make sure you've added a few garlic cloves to the potatoes for that 15 to 20 minute simmer. Drain. Mash/smash everything with as much butter and milk as you feel necessary. Don't try for perfect smoothness; it's horse**** and not needed.

You cannot taste the kale at all, but you've increased the vitamin and mineral content of your previously useless mashed taters (from a nutritional standpoint) about a 1000%.

this is 2/3 of a really good dutch meal called boerenkool.

make some sausage to go with it and you're there.

when I was a kid I hated it when my dad put it on the table, but have grown to like it a lot as an adult.

I bought some Hidden Valley Ranch chips. They are awful. I threw 95% of the bag away. How can you **** up something so simple?

The dollar slice of pizza at WinCo. I knew it would be bad, I didn't think it would taste like the freezer floor.

Must have been one without the Leonardi's inside? That's some of the best pizza for the cost (not frozen, they make it right there).
