Final Rating: 6.2/10. Burger King could have gotten away with a below average effort if they just made a Whopper with a black bun.  Who doesn’t love food coloring?  Green beer on St. Patty’s Day is the tits!  But if you are going to load a burger with A1 sauce and say the bun is “infused with A1 sauce”, you need to bring your fastball.  And The King didn’t.  Be better, Burger King.  (PS: That is black bun in my teeth.  I promise you my mouth is not rotting, even if I patently refuse to floss)

On a positive note, at least I found out this lovely tidbit after eating the Halloween Whopper.  I should be in for a nice treat in a few hours (probably less than that if we are being honest, since it is Burger King after all)

Last year, I did a review of all the flavors for the Lay’s Do Us A Flavor contest, which helped get me started down this long, cholesterol-raising road of food reviews.  So being the man of honor that I strive to be, I have decided to do the reviews with the four new flavors of 2015: Southern Biscuits And Gravy, West Coast Truffle Fries, New York Ruben, and Greektown Gyro.  Onto the reviews.

Southern Biscuits And Gravy:

Rating: 7.8

Pretty damn good.  They kinda tasted like the turkey and gravy chips I reviewed at Thanksgiving time.    Are they better than last year’s winner (in my mind at least) Bacon Mac N Cheese?  Nope.  Or Cappuccino?  Probably not.  But they are decent.  And any time you get to listen to a little bit of Ludacris as you eat junk food, life isn’t all that bad.

West Coast Truffle Fries:

Rating: 4.2

Now this one broke my heart.  Whenever someone orders truffle fries for the table, I will likely say something like “Oh, that’s cool.  I’ll probably have a couple.”  And then I do not hear another word of conversation at the table until the fries arrive because they are all I am thinking about.  So yeah, I like truffle fries.  But these things were a goddamn traveshamockery on that wonderful food.  

New York Reuben:

Rating: 1.2.  

The brief whiff of these chips almost made me throw up.  But I gave them a shot anyway.  As you can see in the video, it’s a gradual decline from tasting to disliking to pure hatred.  When I say it tasted like a subway, I meant one of those subway trains where there is a homeless person that is asleep/dead in the corner and you can never get that smell out of your nose.  Yup, that bad.

Greektown Gyro:

Rating: 0. Zero. A goddamn goose egg. The worst actual food I have ever tasted.  Bigfoot’s dick level of disgusting.

Final Rating: 8.5/10.  Basically a Corn Nut, if you have ever had one of them.  The butter and salt flavor is real good and can lead to some good old fashioned binging.  The kernel was not too hard, which was my biggest worry going into the review.  Well my biggest worry other than the health effects of doing all these junk food reviews for the love of the game.  But that discussion is for another day.  We have a bag of partially popped popcorn to finish.

Final Rating: 8.1/10  There are 3 certainties in life:

1. Whenever a snack food has a “limited edition” or “limited batch” of a new flavor, I will 100% buy it.

2. I will rate any Cape Cod chip (other than Buffalo Cheddar) at least a 7.5 because of how well they kettle cook the chips.

3. People will mispronounce the word “chipotle” and it will drive me bananas.  I should not be friends with those people.

As for the chip, I’m not a huge flavored-chip guy.  It’s decent, not great.  Give me a bag of regular Cape Cod chips any day of the week.  And bring back the Dark Russets, God dammit!

P.S. I was in the Cape over the summer and stopped by the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory.  I hate to admit how high that was on my bucket list.  Still brings a tear to my eye thinking about it.

Final Rating: 7.4/10. The flavor of Cheez It crackers are incredible. For my money, they are the best cracker in the snack food game. You don’t get that type of strong cheddar taste unless you are digging into the batter’s box against a Henry Rowengartner fastball. However, on the cheese puff, the flavor just tastes fake. It gets a 7.1 because like every cheese puff/doodle ever, these things are addicting. The real news here is that you can eat a ton of these and not walk away with solid orange fingers. That’s worth 0.3 review points, easily. Now we need the people at Cheetos to steal this technology and finally make the world a perfect place.

Final Rating: 6.8/10. It’s chock full of cheese and steak, which I love. So now you are saying “Hey Clem, stop being such a nincompoop. If it has a ton of cheese and steak, it should be at least a 9.0”. But NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND. The flatbread (or whatever it is) cannot handle the weight. So everything falls apart. Plus it’s just kind of bland. It need a little more flavor in it. Maybe a hint of sour cream or nacho cheese to kick it up a notch.  How about some bacon bits?  Potatoes?  Get creative, Taco Bell. If I am going to put my intestines through the trauma of a Taco Bell run, I want it to be worth it.

Final Rating: 2.2/10. Just your typically over-sweetened Taco Bell concoction. Nothing to see here. But what really hurts is how Taco Bell is tarnishing the good name of a Hall of Fame candy flavor (Strawberry Starburst). They hit a home run with the Doritos taco shells. But this was a huge strikeout. Shame on you, Taco Bell. Shame on you.
