Tis the Season to be Reviewing…
As has become our holiday custom, wont you enjoy a little Christmas music to enhance the mood?
Mele Kalikimaka and welcome to The Laidback Gourmet. If Santa read blogs, I’m sure he’d read this one. I’m sure he has a elf do it or something like that. On today’s Laidback Gourmet we’re going to have a little bit of holiday Deja Vu, because I’m looking at more holiday marshmallows.
Of course this time I’m looking at Kraft’s Jet Puffed Holiday Mallows, so we’ll be able to see which holiday themed marshmallow reigns supreme? Which puff has the stuff? Which confection can achieve perfection? Which Mallow is Hallow? Find out on IRON A-CHEFFFF. Uh, I mean, LAIDBACK A-GOURMET!!! OK, enough goofing around let’s see what we’re working with.
Once again we’re looking at two different shapes in one bag. Green Trees and Red Stars. Again, sadly no purple horseshoes… where’s the hatred for horseshoes? And if you’re thinking, “What do horseshoes have to do with Christmas”, well how are you suppose to Jingle Bells in a one horse open sleigh if the horse is bare footed? Come on! I feel like I’m losing focus here so let’s take a look at our shapes.
First we have what I think are suppose to be trees, but honestly they look more like leaves. But that’s OK because they are kind of like holly leaves. “You know Mistletoe is deadly if you eat it.” Well here’s hoping these are poisonous. Let’s see the next shape.
Stars! Oh my goodness, ACTUAL STARS!! A marshmallow shape that actually looks like what it’s suppose to be! Now if only they were yellow I could draw little smiley faces on them and act as if they turn me invincible and run around the room humming the doot doot doot invicibilty song. Again… I feel like I’m getting sidetracked today. Let’s taste them.
*Om nom nom*
Now THIS is what I’m talking about. These taste just like actual marshmallows! While the previous holiday marshmallows I reviewed might have been more colorful, these taste way better and at the end of the day, that’s all it’s about. The winner: IRON-A CHEF!!! Uh… I mean, JET PUFFED! Final score: 8/10. A really cheap, fun, tasty holiday treat, check them out.
That concludes this holly jolly edition of the Laidback Gourmet. Thank you as always for reading, and feel free to send thoughts, suggestions, comments or simply wish me happy holidays at SuperfriendEd@Gmail.com. Until next time, this is Ed DiFolco, your Laidback Gourmet who’s going to go think of more Iron Chef style lines. Hmm, “The sticky treat that sickly sweet?” …no that’s terrible… I’ll keep working at it.
