sweet leaf sweet tea
I love real southern sweet tea so this looked exciting. Except that it wasn’t…it’s not even close to being sweet enough to be considered “sweet tea” and there’s way too much water. The tea that I could taste seemed good and fresh, but this is not sweet tea. Not by a mile. c+

trader joe\'s milk
Normally I have trouble telling one brand of milk apart from the next, but this one really stood out. It’s got a slightly sweeter than usual flavor and tastes a bit creamier than other milk brands. I really liked it. My favorite brand of milk so far! a

hungry-man boneless pork

If you really like McDonalds McRib sandwich, you might like this entree. The boneless pork is basically processed formed “ribs” with a sweet bbq sauce. It tastes like it sounds: generic pork meat, with corn, mashed potatoes, and a brownie. The brownie was the best part of this meal. c-

snapple green tea
This looks good and pure, but notice how light the color of the drink is. That’s because it’s really watered-down green tea. It’s not bad: it tastes like good quality green tea. But it’s so watered down that they might as well have called it green tea flavored water. c+

swanson beef pot pie
It’s cheap but tasty, and it’s my favorite beef pie. The filling is decent, with lots of decent meat and veggies in a flavorful gravy. But it’s the crust that makes it so good: really flaky and tasty. a

digiorno spinach and tomato pizza
I thought the garlic bread crust would make this pizza exciting. Instead, the crust was had a texture like toast and tasted like a bland english muffin. The toppings were ok…you can’t really mess up spinach and tomatoes, and there wasn’t much of a garlic flavor. And the entire pizza was tiny. c

arizona pomegranate green tea

arizona pomegranate green tea
I love Arizona’s honey green tea and I like a lot of the pomegranate tea’s from POM and other companies, so I was excited by this pomegranate green tea. Unfortunately, I was really disappointed. The pomegranate taste overpowered the tea and had a medicinal flavor that I didn’t like. Maybe that’s why other companies mix pomegranate with black tea instead of green tea. c-

lipton pure leaf green tea
Wow, it’s so good and refreshing. It’s lightly sweetened with honey, but it doesn’t overpower the green tea flavor. You can really taste the green tea, especially as an after taste, and there’s just a hint of the green tea bitterness that lingers. Good stuff! a

marie callender’s beef pot pie

marie callender beef pie
The filling is slightly better than swanson’s beef pie, with more meat and veggies, and very tasty. There’s almost too much filling, and once you mix in the crust, the whole pie gets really dense. The crust isn’t very flaky, though, and I prefer the swanson pie crust. Don’t cook this in the microwave: it make the crust a bit too crunchy and hard, and the microwave makes the beef a bit tough. b+

goose island root beer

goose island root beer
The label says proudly “real sugar.” Strangely enough, there’s a faint aftertaste that strongly reminds me of artificial sweetener. This root beer is pretty mild, and sort of flat. I’m not too crazy about it. d+
