    Neurogasm Review

    Neurogasm Review

    First, I want to state that horniness is a sickness, and the only cure for it is death. Until we die, horniness plagues most of us in our waking and sleeping life. There is no escape. That being said, I had to try this drink. I first came across it during the summer, when the packaging was much more vulgar (looked like a sex toy). I appreciated the boldness of their gesture; insinuating that this drink was like a rocket ride to Horny Town packed neatly in a 35 calorie beverage. I don’t understand why anyone would want to get horny from a drink. I would prefer something more subtle, like a salad dressing or a drink sweetener. Something that could provide me with just a Touch of Horny. A drink seems like something to overwhelm the senses. If it worked, how long would it take to wear off?

    Pep Talk Review

    Pep Talk Review

    Caffeinated seltzers are becoming a subgenre of the fizzy sugarless variety, and I came across Pep Talk during one of my usual beverage browsing sessions online. The drinks only have three ingredients: carbonated water, natural flavor, and natural caffeine from green coffee beans. I’m always intrigued by anything that has so few ingredients, because while it’s possible to make something taste good with only a few elements, it’s definitely more difficult in certain instances. For those who don’t know, green coffee beans are just coffee beans that haven’t been roasted. Different green coffee beans have different “roasting profiles” that open up when the bean is roasted (this is when the bean turns brown). If the coffee bean remains unroasted, though, it maintains the amount of chlorogenic acid it originally carries. Please keep in mind I’m not a scientist, or a coffee expert, I just have the same google you do. Anyway, chlorogenic acid has antioxidant properties and caffeine.

    How to Eat More Consciously, for You and the Planet

    How to Eat More Consciously, for You and the Planet

    I have always known that food is mood. I have always been aware that what I put in my body results in what comes out of my body. Along my health journey I have also realized, like many of us, that whole and natural foods make me feel the best, and keep me smiling. Whole and natural foods are those that come from the earth and are not processed.

    Nilo Guanabana Review

    Nilo Guanabana Review

    It’s really, truly winter, and among other crushing aspects of the season, some of the best fruit is hard to find. I live in the Midwest, so if you’re in a warmer climate and have access to other seasonal options, congratulations. I envy you for that. The weather here sucks ass, and if I’m being completely honest, I would love to not experience another cold season. Realistically, there’s nothing I will do about it. I’ll bundle up in a winter coat and thick scarf every year and sigh and fantasize about other places I could be living.

    Soylent Review

    Soylent Review

    Borrowing its name from a product in the novel Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison, Soylent claims to be the perfect meal replacement to solve issues of food insecurity through Silicon Valley engineering. I recently rewatched the film Soylent Green (1973), and though the official soylent website claims the drink isn’t as bleak as the meal replacements offered in the film, the association is still incredibly dystopian. Soylent Green is a film set in New York City in 2022, where the poor are packed in the streets, and real food only exists for those who can afford it—the rich. While older people can vaguely remember the taste of fruit or meat, younger generations were born under depressing circumstances, and have no idea what real food tastes like. The poor subsist on an allegedly nutritious food made of soybeans and lentils, as the Greenhouse Effect has ruined the Earth and made other food unsustainable. Fueled by a series of murders and suspicious events, Detective Thorn starts investigating what looks to be a dark secret surrounding soylent green.

    To Heaven and Back

    To Heaven and Back

    Teachers, perhaps more than any other professionals I know, are always eager to partake of free food with little to no regard for calories or fat intake. When given the opportunity, we will down pizzas, seven-layer dips, sugary punches, cookies, cupcakes -- and any other food preceded by the word “free” --like nobody’s business.

    Seedlip Review

    Seedlip Review

    Seedlip boasts being the first non-alcoholic distilled spirit, taking inspiration from an old recipe book of herbal concoctions from the 1770s. They seek to quench the thirst of people who wonder “What do I drink when I’m not drinking?” and have three flavors of distilled spirits. Grove 42, Spice 94 and Garden 108 all have unique flavors and descriptions, and I went with Garden 108 for this week’s review. Garden 108 is a floral blend and includes handpicked hay and sugar snap peas, which sounded weird as hell to me. As we all know, if it sounds weird, I need to try it.

    Why you should not buy PC (Presidents Choice) gift cards

    Why you should not buy PC (Presidents Choice) gift cards

    The Weston family pretty much have a stranglehold on grocery stores in Canada with Loblaw. Loblaw is parent company that own tons of grocery stores across Canada. A few years back they had even purchased Shopper's Drug Mart which is a huge pharmacy chain across Canada. Needless to say they have a ton of stores across Canada. They're like the Wal-Mart of Canada.

    The Best Invention Ever!

    The Best Invention Ever!

    I love pizza. I especially love it when it's not squashed by the time it gets to my table. Now, although I realize that, in the context of "what's really important" in a world fraught with wars, natural disasters, plagues and serious diseases, this may not top the list of mankind's priorities.

    drank review

    drank review

    My sleep schedule has been all fucked up. I think it’s a combination of anticipation, a lot going on in my personal life, and a general sense of sadness about world events. Anyway, I haven’t been sleeping. I’m sure a lot of you can relate. Lack of sleep is the most jarring shock to the system. It makes the night unbearable and the following day is even worse. There’s a fuzzy haze on everything..conversations, the work day, food. Nothing sounds or flows or tastes quite right.
