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.

White House Subs Atlantic City New Jersey

A Fat Pride Times staffer was traveling around the east coast and all the locals in Atlantic City said they had to try White House subs.

If you get the chance to visit, make sure you are not in a hurry. The line to get a sub is usually 5-10 people deep, all times of the day.

Pats king of Steaks Philadelphia pizza steak

Sent in by a new reader, Philly Phil, a Pizza steak from Pat's King of Steaks in South Philadelphia. Pat's in a unique X looking intersection next to a park and on very narrow streets.

Know what you want to order when you get to the counter. Ordering is fast paced and your food will come out hot, fast and yum! The normal cheesesteak in Philly comes with a cheeze-whiz bonus, which sounds delightful!

New chips jalapeño ranch Ruffles

Some of the newest chips added to the Ruffles line of potato snacks. These chips really only have a hint of jalapeño. Most of what we tasted was the ranch flavor. If you are looking for a spicy snack, keep looking. Not a bad potato chip, but its lacking the jalapeño heat.

Mackies of Scotland Aberdeen Angus Steak Potato Chips

Anyone who follows the Fat Pride Times knows we love our potato chip snack treats and are always interested in the many variations available.

This time around we found these Angus Steak flavor chips. These chips are imported from Scotland. As you can see from the example chip, they are a thick cruncher. The chip has a salty, meaty flavor, that of a steak. We suggest you get your hands on a bag. The chips may be hard to find since they are a import. .

We all here at the Fat Pride Times love mayonnaise. Very rarely do we find a variation on the classic sandwich spread.

Jack Links Master Ridge Farms Turkey Jerky

We know that everyone loves beef jerky, but what about turkey jerky? Do people really eat turkey jerky?

Starbucks Using Bugs to Color Strawberry Frappuccino

Here at the FPT, we have mixed emotions on the company known as Starbucks. Some of our staff has to have their morning venti iced caramel machiato before they can get productive work done. Others refuse to spend their hard earned schillings at the coffee giant. Regardless of what side of the fence you are on, this article may have you thinking twice of what you are eating/drinking.

Making the round on the interwebz is the story about the cochineal insect. The insect is widely used through out the world as a coloring agent for food and other items. Cochineal is considered safe by the FDA, and is used in many other foods such as jams, meats, cookies, just to name a few.

If you want to aviod this product, look for the names carmine (sometimes listed as carminic acid or Natural Red 4).

Taco Bell Doritos Locos Taco Supreme

According to the ad executives from Taco Bell, a dude and his friends drove over 900 miles to sample the Doritos Locos taco. Luckily for you (us) this taco is now available at your nearest Taco Bell.

The FPT crew had a Doritos Locos taco party and each member of the staff sat down and tried the new taco. Everyone who tried it, agreed the Doritos shell is MUCH better than a regular corn shell.

If you priders get out there and support this taco with your purchases, we hope it will become a permanent member of the Bell family.

Beer Flavor Potato Chips Do They Really Taste Like Beer?

A loyal reader sent in this photo of beer flavored potato chips. According to our reader, the chips do not taste like beer. But she enjoyed the taste and crunchyness of the chips.

Also, it seems at the time of this post, the chips can only be found at a Albertsons grocery store. Let's see I'd this product can be found anywhere else.

Lindt Excellence Chili Pepper Dark Chocolate Bar

Here at the Fat Pride Times, we love when two food items can be matched together to create one excellent food, like peanut butter and chocolate, or sour cream and onions.

When we heard that there was a dark chocolate bar infused with a chili pepper, our whole crew just had to try it.

The taste start out with the dark, slightly bitter taste of the dark chocolate. Once you have chewed and swallowed the chocolate, the fun begins. The back of you tongue gets a little warm from the heat of the pepper. Not too much, but just right.

We recommend this chocolate bar to lovers of peppers and chocolate. Though we have heard this treat may be hard to found, keep a eye out, you may just find it.

We are sure there has to be some kind of catch, there always is. We tried to reference the IHOP website and it mysteriously will not load.

Deviled Eggs Spiced Up Not For The Weakl

Looking to make a better Deviled egg, one of our interns came up with a creative concoction for the eggs.

With all the ingredients pictured, all where mixed together with the yellows of the hard boiled eggs. Our intern said use more mustard and red hot than horseradish, but not much.

And for the finale, a jalapeño slice is added on top. Nice bite and spice to these eggs makes them a winner.

Heinz Hot and Spicy Tabasco Flavor Ketchup

This bottle of ketchup showed up in the Fat Pride Times office refrigerator recently, but no one knows where it came from.

Being curious, we decided to give it a try on some French fries. The Heinz hot & spicy ketchup does have a nice heat kick, but not to overwhelming.

This ketchup is not for those who like a little spice kick, but great for the more adventures.
