Corazonas Whole Grain Squeeze of Lime Tortilla Chip - February 16, 2010

Bonnie: With February being American Heart Month, we decided to feature these lime-flavored Corazonas Whole Grain Tortilla Chips that actually are a heart-healthy snack. Seriously.

These chips are fortified with cholesterol-lowering plant sterols and contain 18 grams (or more than one of the three recommended daily servings) of whole grains. Corazon, by the way, is the Spanish word for heart. Although Corazonas has many…

Bryan: To be honest, I’m not really a big fan of the “hint of lime” craze currently sweeping its way through a number of different supermarket products. It seems that everything from beer to cookies is getting some sort of dose of lime flavor, and most of the time, at least to me, the flavor bears very little resemblance to anything actually lime.

That being said, you can imagine I was not overly excited to find we were testing Corazonas …

Eric: I nervously taste-tested these chips, accompanied by a spicy mango salsa, at our latest Super Bowl party. I write “nervously” because I, like my brother, am not a fan of the “hint of lime” craze. Ever since Diet Coke with Lime made its debut in 2004, every supermarket product vying for a spot in the Hispanic (Latin America/Caribbean) consumers’ cupboard has attempted to integrate the taste of lime. Not many have successfully…

The Cheese Ambassador - December 9, 2009

Bonnie: I admit when I’m wrong.

This past turkey day, while sitting around the holiday table, we discussed some of the products we’ve tried and whether we felt them worthy of being a FeaturedBite. Yes. Yes, we’re always discussing food!Earlier this year, I had decided to write only a TidBite about The Cheese Ambassador and not a bite because I felt their offerings were pricey.

“The cheeses are fabulous,” said Bryan. “The Cave-Aged Blue was the big hit at a recent dinner party….”

“We’ve recommended pricey items before,” added Eric….

Bryan: It’s a hard job always being right ;-)

I’ve been pushing for The Cheese Ambassador as a featured bite for a while now. In actuality, it wasn’t really that hard of a sell, as all of us really enjoyed the concept and the cheese itself; it’s just that there are so many products vying for our (and your) attention that sometimes a small knock against something will cause it to…

Eric: One of the hardest choices I have to make when food shopping is the type of cheese to buy. It may sound silly, or even ridiculous, but the right cheese (flavor, not slice or shred) will make the difference between a good meal and a great one.

I’ve written about cheese in the past, and how my love affair with it began at my aunt’s house in Brussels, with the usual…

Materne GoGo SqueeZ Applesauce on the Go - December 2, 2009

Bonnie: GoGo squeeZ is a new single-serve applesauce modeled on Yoplait’s pioneering Go-GURT squeezable yogurt in a tube. Go-GURT contains artificially Day-Glo colored, artificially flavored yogurt that’s sweetened with both sugar and high fructose corn syrup in a flimsy tube. (Read: Can be messy.)

GoGo is 100 percent fruit, sweetened with apple-juice concentrate, in a GoGo-squeeZ_cinnamonsturdy …

Bryan: Europeans dunk their French fries in mayonnaise; Americans use ketchup. It might seem like a small thing, but I’ve always found this divergence in toppings for one of the Western World’s most-often consumed side dishes was indicative of the differences between European food culture and US food culture. It’s not that one way is better than the other — actually, mixing the two together to form ….

Eric: My love affair with applesauce was rekindled during my first month overseas after I finished an order of rotisserie chicken. Odd as it seemed to me, the chicken was not only accompanied by traditional French fries (pommes frites), but also contained a side of applesauce (or applemoes, as the Dutch refer to it). The applesauce added a sweet, …
