Chocolate Bars, Cookies and Chips...

...have been taken to an entirely new level

From reading the comments on my Costco post, it seems that I led people a bit astray. We make our best efforts to eat healthy, but not everything we purchase is in line with veggie crunchers and dried blueberries, as Steve has the sweet tooth and I sometimes prefer the salty {less healthy} snacks.

Steve bought the Ramen Noodle Komforte Chockolate by Seattle Chocolates on Sunday night and I have yet to test it out, but according to him, it was "good" hmmmm I guess he didn't love it, but I know he didn't hate it because there was another bite from the bar this morning. Salted chocolates are a favorite of mine, so I'm thinking I might prefer the Tortiall Lime + Salt flavor the best.

I rarely eat McDonalds and couldn't tell you the last time I had one of their cheeseburgers, but the taste of a McDonalds cheeseburger (whether you like them or not), is one that is quite distinct and recognizable when it comes to the world of burgers. With that said, the new 'Late Night all nighter Cheeseburger Doritos' taste EXACTLY like a McDonalds cheeseburger - like in a blind taste test I might not be able to tell the difference...well, maybe I could, but you get my point. The pickles, the bun, the cheese, the ketchup, the beef - it's all there. If you're a chip lover, like myself, I say give them a shot - they're not that bad. Now, if you're my friend Michelle, who has NEVER had a McDonalds cheeseburger in her life, you wouldn't know the difference. She became partial to the chicken mcnuggets (moreso than the average child) as a kid and has never regretted this decision.

And finally...As part of 25th Anniversary of the Dairy Queen Blizzard, DQ and Kraft Foods have launched a Limited Edition Oreo Blizzard Cookie. Seriously, did people shopping the cookie aisle need one more option to choose from??? As with any new treat, Steve bought a bag {ahhhh maybe two}. They taste almost exactly the same as the original Oreo with a creamier middle - if I'm in desperate need of a DQ treat, I think I'll stick with the original Blizzard

My favorite thing on this post is the McDonald's cheeseburger. I had one just last week.....delicious! Not sure that I would like the Doritos though....just sounds too weird to me.

McDo's cheeseburgers are one of the biggest things I miss since going 'vegetarian' (I put it in quotes since we all know I am not a very good vegetarian!). I def will get some of those Doritos! Yum!

OMG. This post just made me so f'ing hungry. Sorry to be so blunt. But seriously, I am going to get that stuff asap.

Dude I'm with Jac, I'm in bed getting my coffey fix and now I MUST HAVE JUNK FOOD. Like, NOW.

OMG, I am SO glad I don't live there anymore as all items listed would have been purchased and consumed a million times over by me already. I drool thinking about DQ Oreo Blizzards, it will probably be our first stop from Seatac next month when we're there, followed by Taco Time. Next time you get to snack on these treats, just remember how lucky you are ;)!

I think we ate a a cheeseburger the last time I was up in Seattle...after our very sober night at your house??
Those chips sound so nasty...but like we discussed while you were here...Galen would eat the shizzle out of them!
I always love a fat kid post!

Loving this post! I will be avoiding the Doritos but can think of a certain late night snacker (Brandon) who would surely enjoy those. The oreos look amazing and I would love to try the lime and salt chocolate. YUM!

I think those chips sound so terrible, ha! But the cookies sound tdf!!! I would be in huge trouble if I bought those, I would eat every single one, yikes!
