Tostitos Creamy Southwestern Ranch Dip
Reader Review

From one of our regular readers:

"I like all things ranch, and most things southwestern. So when I saw this new Tostitos Creamy Southwestern Ranch Dip on the shelf while on a beer run, I grabbed it without hesitation. I already had some Tostinos Crispy Rounds at home".

"This blend is a winner. It tastes very much like a 7 layer bean or taco dip. The consistancy is very much like that of the ranch dip offered by Frito Lay. As you can see it comes in a nice 15.25 oz jar, so there is no reason to not to dip deep!"

Reviewer: Etathed

Thanks for your contribution!
We just a staff member out to get us a jar.

Tom Sawyer Was Right
Bagged Salad Issues Arise

The staff here at the FPT must acknowledge our reader Tom Sawyer, who warned us about eating the washed bagged salads. Dole has issued an international recall of one of its bagged salads as the product tested positive for E.Coli in Canada.

We should all take a moment and rethink our approach to bagged salad and listen to Tom Sawyer who said this last month "Bag salad is dangerous and toxic. Entirely too many chemicals to give it that fresh, crisp taste. For God's sake DON"T GIVE IT TO YOUR CHILDREN!!!!"

Johnny, our guy from the FPT HR department, brought this to our attention. No suprise he noticed this new offering as he puts ketchup on everthing he eats. Heinz, which is the standard of all ketchups is now offering this huge 'fridge size' plastic squeezer size that packs a healthy 64 ounce portion. Props to Heinz for going big.

"Popcorn Lung" Forces Changes At Orville Redenbacher's

That buttery popcorn may be satisfying, but long time popcorn king Orville Redenbacher is being forced to change its formula after the discovery that a key chemical ingredient, Diacetyl, has been linked to cases of bronchiolitis obliterans, a rare life-threatening disease often called popcorn lung.

Naturally, we here at the FPT always suggest the use of copious amounts of real butter whenever possible.

Reese's Honors Elvis
With Banana Cream Cups

One of our regular correspondants checked in yesterday with his take on the new Reese's Elvis Banana Creme Cups. We here at the FPT have not tried them yet, however we recommend you read the folowing and review the above photos before a purchase:

"Props have to go out to the H.B. Reese Candy Co. for honoring the King in such fashion. However the props have to end there. It seems that any variation from the standard Reese Peanut Butter Cup makes for disaster. Albeit, the Reese Crispy Crunchy had me hooked for a bit."

"For starters, every Banana Cream Cup I’ve ever opened has been completely distorted from its true circular state. This has to do with the completely different metabolism of the Banana Cream Cup. It has a very chewy and rubber-like feel to it and always causes quite a mess to the fingers, nothing like the standard cup. After extracting the cups from the paper wrapper, you now have a moldable project on your hands. Chocolate (if that is what you’d like to call it) is left on the wrapper and it is a complete mess. No eating around the Peanut Butter center like with the originals; you are now forced to either pitch it or eat the whole damn thing at once."

"Nice effort Reese’s but please let the King rest in “piece”."
