Think of these as hot, hot pockets – but with a twist. The first hot meaning spicy. The second hot meaning, well, hot – as in more than warm.

Cigarette butts and stale ashtray. That’s the smell that came out of the can. The message was clear, this is going to be different. (more…)
This is the 2015 edition according to the label on the can. The label speaks to the special aging process the coffee goes through. The beans are aged for two years before roasted and sold.
If you’re the only coffee drinker in the house, stick your nose in the can for about 10 seconds each morning for a pleasant wake up. This is one of the best smelling coffees. There’s a brief hint of chocolate when first opened. After that there’s a very nice aroma that actually smells like coffee and not burnt toast. That aroma continues with each opening until the can is emptied.

This is what we call in the US, Swiss cheese. However, this time the cheese is made in Norway. So don’t call it Swiss. Call it Jarlsberg.
The cheese is; soft but firm, easy to cut, mild, and tastes like a mild Swiss cheese with sometimes just a very little hint of sweetness. It cuts easily into chunks which are perfect for a cheese tray or noshing. Trader Joe cuts and repackages this cheese from a wheel. The new wrapping is just a bit loose, so don’t store it in your refrigerator too long or parts will dry out a bit. It’s a good cheese and not horribly expensive at $7.49 per pound.

Today we have a French table wine that’s perfect for an everyday meal because it’s both good and inexpensive.
For the west coast crowd, here’s a Trader Joe’s ultra dark roasted coffee for consideration.
$1.99 wasn’t too much to lose. With a flavor combo like this on the bag, I couldn’t leave them on the shelf. Curiosity got the better part of me. Maybe it was the worst part, because it sure didn’t turn out so well.
Smooth and mellow? Reasonably so.
