Loaded & Baked Again!
Pringles Style

Pringles is now offering a 'loaded and baked' potato flavor of its famous tube chips.

We had thought that the Idahoan potatoes was unique in using this flavor nickname, but things are changing. Two members of our staff will be spending as much time as it takes to find out if there are indeed other food items using this nick and exactly who was first.

These Pringles are excellently loaded & baked and we fully recommend them.

"Loaded & Baked"
Instant Mashed Potatoes
Made By Idahoan Brand

This newer foodstuff is awarded the best named offering we have seen in awhile. Loaded & Baked 4 minute mashed potatoes are quite nice - wether you are loaded and/or baked or not. We do not judge here at the FPTimes. Nice portion in this bag - enough for two or one really loaded and baked individual. Idahoan offers other flavors as well but this one stands alone. Five FPT Stars.

Call For Information:
Yorkshire Pudding - Need Info

One of our long time readers has asked us to ask our visitors if they have any information on or about the dish called 'Yorkshire Pudding' as he had it while vacationing in the United Kingdom.

One of our staffers floated around some chatrooms with people from Europe within them asking questions about this foodstuff. Some of the replies were: 'it's literally just batter cooked in fat in the oven to form a small savoury pudding normally served with meat and gravy' -- ' a gigantic undercooked savoury donut' -- 'you can get huge ones the size of a plate and fill them with sausages and gravy and veg which is ace' and 'served traditionally the face of george michael embossed in the bottom using a "georging iron". These answers helped, however we are still seeking help from our international base of readers. Please send any photos to us or post any info using the comment link below. We thank you for your help.

FPT Fine Arts Report:
A Graceful Bagel Dance

One of our readers sent us to the following video link and decided we needed to post more diverse foodstuff related offerings. This unknown "Sandal Dancer" gracefully performs his moves around a jalapeno and cheese bagel - very unique and captivating.

One of this dancers fans described this performance as "It's like angels are moving your feet and tapping out God's rhythms."

Fat Pride 5-Star Foodstuff:
Fresh Express Salsa!
Ensalada Supreme

The staff here felt that we should follow our last post about a horrible item with info on one we can stand behind. We are loving the bagged salad kit from Fresh Express called "Salsa! - Ensalada Supreme". This bag comes with nice washed cut salad and a kit with all kinds of kickers to add. Included is tortilla strips, grated cheese, salsa and a spicy creamy dressing. Toss them all in a bowl, roll them around and you got one mean meal.

Fresh Express has a variety of these kits and all the ones we have tried as of yet are all excellent as well.

Pillsbury Low Fat Toaster Scrambles
Makes Our Worst Food List

We are not happy campers at the FPT underground test kitchens right about now. This morning we were to sample the Pillsbury Low Fat Toaster Scrambles but we did not get past the first bite. Not sure what we were expecting with these, but what we got was not of this earth. They are like saltine crackers with some nasty cheesey mac spread in them. Absolutely unedible.
