7-11 cheddar and sour cream chips

The Fat Pride times is always looking to try new brand of chips when we can. We where excited to see a new chip on the market from 7-11. The price is right,  .99 cents a bag in a time where chips prices are on the rise.

Overall quality of the chips on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest) I would say 5.5 out of 10. Decent chip,  nothing special.

Our biggest gripe about these chips is the packaging. As you can see from the picture, the bag has been only half filled with chips, the rest is air. 7-11 could do a better job of packaging thier chips and not mislead the consumers. Also, think of all the wasted packaging they could be saving by making the bags smaller.

We suggest you buy other brands of chips and you stay away from the deceptive package from 7-11 chips, you will thank us.

McCormick Golden Dipt Seafood Beer Batter on Chicken

Some people may have not believed it was possible but here at the Fat Pride Times we take food challenges very serious.

The batter is very easy to make, just add water. Then coat the chicken and place it in the fryer for 5 minutes @ 375 degrees. Chicken comes out a nicely coated golden brown. We all here agreed that it is ok when you batter chicken in seafood seasonings. You be the judge

Papa Johns half off everything when Lakers score 50

So here is how it works. If the LA Lakers score 50 or more points in the first half on the road, you can use the code LAKERS50 and you will receive 50% off everything on the menu! Now it says this deal is exclusive to Southern California, but there are reports of people in Las Vegas that have used the code.
Also, the code is only good for 24 hours after the game, so use it fast. It is good for delivery or carry out.

Larry the Cable Guy Spicy Chicken Batter

If you have not heard of Larry of the Cable Guy by now, consider yourself in the minority. For all of us that are familiar with his "git-r-done" attitude you might recognize his chicken batter.

This we have hired a intern to do our cooking, cleaning and all around grunt work, we will call him Bobby

Bobby deep fried up some chicken chunks coated in the Larry the Cable Guy spicy chicken batter. After a taste test by a few of the people hanging around the office, it was voted a 3-2 winner. Two of the people didn't like it because the are vegetarian, the other 3 would recommend it to others.

Fresh and Easy Belgium waffle mix

We have great readers here at the Fat Pride Times. One loyal follower sent in a product to our test kitchen for review.

This time around it is Belgium Waffle mix from a store only located in the southwest United States called Fresh & Easy. Fresh & Easy prides itself in offering fresh foods, low prices and speedy check out ( they don't have checkers, self check out only). We have mixes emotions on self check out. It can be convenient, but also it is talking away a job from someone who could use it

Anyways, back to the waffles. We fired up the waffle iron and went to work. This was a special batch of waffles using chocolate chips (chips are optional)
The mix is really easy to make, all it takes is milk and butter.
Waffles came out to perfection, nice and crispy with plenty of syrup holding pockets.
