My Quest to Capture a Can of Planters Cheez Balls

This post contains affiliate links. Sunday, July 1, 2018. That's the date I placed the order for my childhood. It's also the date that Planters officially announced its long-lost Cheez Balls would be back for a limited time only. Yes, I have a very unique love affair with Planters Cheez Balls. And I was so excited about them, and so scared they'd be sold out everywhere, that I ordered them on Amazon. By "them," I mean a case. A case of 12 cans of Cheez Balls. Unfortunately, this was far from straightforward transaction. It turned into an exhausting quest of sorts. I must warn you that the following description of my Cheez Balls' journey ...

Eat It, Thanos. I Made Infinity Stone Cookies!

How do you follow up the baking of an Infinity Gauntlet cake? With super colorful sugary Infinity Stone Cookies, that's how! Thanks to my Level 9 Clearance at S.H.I.E.L.D., I was sent an early Blu-ray edition of Avengers: Infinity War. (Yes, this movie's just as good the third, fourth and fifth viewing!) Packed with super-cool extra featurettes, cut scenes, and the ever-popular gag reel, the Avengers: Infinity War hits Blu-ray on August 14. But what made this early delivery even more special was the secret recipe it came with. Even the Collector would be jealous of this unboxing! Yes, I was sent a brief on The Infinity Stones, an Infinity Gauntlet oven mitt, a ...

True Love Lives On – Planters Cheez Balls Return!

This post contains affiliate links. Shut. The. Door. This had better not be a joke. It best not be a trick. And it's too early for an April Fool's Joke. So it must be true. Yes indeed, Planters is bringing back the greatest snack of all time: Planters Cheez Balls! For those of you born after the '90s, you are in for the most incredible treat. I'm a big fan of cheese balls. Like, my veins bleed orange powder kind of fan. And while some cheese balls are certainly a lot better than others, nothing, as in nothing, compares to Planters Cheez Balls. What makes them so good I think, is the fact they ...

Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls

Happy New Year, everyone! As we kick off another beginning, I thought I'd share with you how we ended last year in style. My wife and I are back on the health train, starting 2018 fresh with a new outlook on eating right and exercising. But we made sure to splurge as we said goodbye to 2017. Allie's always making the most amazing looking (and tasting!) desserts. I don't know if she'll ever top my Fozzie Bear birthday cake, but she came up with a brilliant idea that was the hit of our New Year's Eve party. I'm talking about Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls! These are fairly easy to make, insanely ...

I recently shared my latest food addiction with you guys: the seaweed snacks called Chomperz! Well, now I'm putting my money where my mouth is! Well, technically, it's not my money.

I Just Can’t Stop Eating These Seaweed Snacks Called Chomperz

When it comes to healthy snacks, I'll usually munch on some homemade Kale Chips. They're good and crunchy, but kind of messy and take a long time to make in the oven. Recently, though, I discovered a bunch of seaweed snacks that I simply cannot stop eating. I was walking the aisles of a local ShopRite supermarket when a cartoony shark caught my eye. A big fan of the Jabberjaw cartoon from decades ago (Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!), this googly eyed shark was staring back at me on a bag of crunchy seaweed chips called Chomperz. I quickly checked the nutrition facts to make sure they weren't super fattening like most chips and ...
