Purple..

Tastes Like..

Incredibly flavourless. Like it's been watered down so much that it could easily avoid any Sugar Tax, by the method of being utterly bland and tasteless.

I wasn't sure if this was soft drink or cordial, and BOY am I glad I didn't add water, because then, any taste would've been long long gone.

Rating : 1/5 - Bah, humbug.

My current soft-drink selection. And it's a cordial, so you can make it as tasty as you'd like. Even still, I typically end up using an approximate 1 cordial to 10 water ratio, which is quite weak, but is still nice and tasty.

Tastes exactly as you'd expect. Tastes of coconut!
It's a drier coconut than that of Bounty Bars, but it's really quite nice.
Not sure I can taste anything other than coconut, though, so those sesame seeds are totally wasted in here!

Rating : 5/5 - Mmmm! Definitely could eat more of these.
Maybe not at that price, though!

Typing "Ape Snacks Coconut" into Amazon is bringing up a nice selection. .. Not sure I'd try cheese flavoured coconut puffs, though!!

Like someone stole half my Oreo!!

The outer contained 4 snack-sized packs, each containing 4 little .. cakes!

Tastes Like...

The rice-half is rather bland, but the chocolate half was delicious!!!
Curiously crunchy, but then melts in the mouth..
Mmm..

Rating : 4/5 - the bland bottom lets it down, but otherwise really nice!
Mum : ooh, these are really nice!

Rice cakes are one of those things that everyone really tries to like, but actually doesn't. Topping them only hides their blandness. Infusing them with something else, just proves that they are too bland to eat without anything in!

Aha! Been waiting ages for this. The long bank holiday weekend didn't help, either..

August's box has arrived!!


Cheat Sheet


Note : I won't be going in a set order, this month, because the last item was is depressingly dull, and is sat in the cupboard alongside 3 identical tins!!!

Additional Note : Last month's box contained a Peri Peri Chicken meal maker thing, but Mum's ulcer has been playing up, so it's still sat in the cupboard. We might end up giving it to my sister, or something..

Item One





We tried the Hazelnut, today.
Well save the Salted Caramel for another day.

Not that great.
I thought it was just me, having gone off chocolate, but Mum didn't enjoy it, either.
"Too" rich?

Rating : 2/5 - Would've proffered a normal KitKat

You can't normally go wrong with a KitKat, but I wasn't fussed on these either.

Tastes Like..

I'm not a fan of a lot of "cheesy" flavourings. Quavers I can stand, but Wotsits can fuck right off..

I dipped a teensy bit of the "cheese" on my finger and ..
Eeeeeuuueeewwwww!!!!!!

I ate the crisps and the tomato dip, without the vile cheese.
They're ok.

Rating : 3/5 - alright, but I'd rather have a great big bag of Doritos and some proper spicy salsa with them..

|update| Nah... |update|

I gave up about halfway through. The salsa got more and more sickly as I went on.
Updated Rating : 1/5 - Horrible leftover taste in my mouth..

I'm not convinced that any cheese with nachos IS actually cheese. I think it's melted udder scrapings. Foul stuff. And yeah, give me Doritos and a spicy dip and I'm a happy bunny. In fact, get rid of the dip and just give me spicy Doritos!

Me and mum had the other KitKat Senses, today. (Each "bar" is 3 little KitKats)

Salted Caramel.. and, I honestly couldn't taste the salted caramel, anywhere.
It just tasted like a regular KitKat..

*shrugs*

Rating : 0/5 - Could've just had a KitKat.

I've never been a caramel fan, but my wife is. She loves fudge, toffee and stuff like that. Even she doesn't get why salted caramel is such a "thing." I can't tell the difference at all. She can't really either.

After the pure crappiness of those horrible Advent Teas, I sure as hell wasn't having it black!!

Tastes Like..

Alright, I guess.
I mean, it's not the best chai tea I've had. The Tassimo Chai Latte are the best of the best!!
But these are alright.

It's going to take me ages to get through all these bags, though!

Rating : 4/5 - If I were more of a tea fan, I'd probably have given them 5!!

I had slight flashbacks to those godawful Ensure drinks they had me on, in the hospital, but thankfully it's not as bad as those.

Tastes a lot like Galaxy chocolate.
Nice!

Rating : 5/5 - yup. Can't go wrong with a chocolate milkshake!

.. unless it's an Ensure Plus!

We give out Ensure (and Plus) to our patients from time to time. In 25+ years of working inn the NHS, only one person has ever liked them (and only certain flavours). Much as I love chocolate milkshakes I was never tempted to try one of those!

But yeah, chocolate milkshakes. Yum!

Today we'll be trying the strawberry ones. .. because my post-op tastebuds can't stand strawberry..

A migraine coming on!!!!
They taste alright, though. The strawberry and yoghurt mix into a strange blend that tastes quite a lot like Juicy Fruit Gum!
Nice!

What the fuck is a unicorn flake? A mythical beast rubbed up and down with a brillo pad? A cryptid with exzema?

The mind boggles.

If you'd've told me, 13 years ago, that in 13 years time, I'd be sitting eating Unicorn Flakes on SoCoder's 13th Birthday.. I'd've thought you a crazy folk!!



Looks Like..



Tastes Like..

A bit too floury/powdery, if I'm honest.
The fruit flavour is really quite powerful, but not too sweet, either.
They're .. slightly chewy, but they also fall apart as soon as you do try to chew.
Odd texture, no doubt helped by the powderyness.

They're ok, but out of the three packets, I think I actually preferred the strawberry, even if they did give me a migraine almost immediately!

Rating: 3/5 - I'd rather have seen the Unicorn live, than be slaughtered for these flakes.

FYI : The Orange jelly tasted like Orange jelly, but the Apple and Blackcurrant was neither Apple nor Blackcurrant, and definitely wasn't very good.
