*NEW* 7 Eleven Pepsi Fire Slurpee REVIEW ūüĒ•

Another day, another review!! ¬†Today, I’m reviewing the *NEW* 7 Eleven Pepsi Fire Slurpee.

I always look forward to new Slurpee flavors and 7 Eleven never seems to be lacking.  This time around, it is a Slurpee with Pepsi and some heat.  Sounded weird, but looked good on the advertisement, so who am I not to try it?

After my review, my son ran over to give it a try. ¬†He had really good things to say about it, actually claiming it was now one of his top favorite 7 Eleven Slurpees. ¬†That’s saying a lot!

Anywho, take care of yourselves and I’ll see you on the next review.

Regards,

REVIEW: Time To Open Carnivore Club

Hola, gang!

I recently got my hands on another Carnivore Club subscription box, full of everything a meat eater loves. ¬†Every month, they feature a different Artisan and bring the customer the best dried, cured, and smoked meats they offer. ¬†It’s definitely one of my favorite subscription boxes.

This month, Carnivore Club is bringing New England Charcuterie my way, with all sorts of beef and pork salamis.  Check it out below:

 

If you’re interested in looking into Carnivore Club for yourself, you can do it right here.

Thanks so much for being some awesome people! ¬†If you can’t get enough nerdy stuff, sign up for my monthly newsletter. ¬†It off to your right, over there. ūüėČ

The YouTube Food Reviewers That I Watch

Hi gang!

I’ve noticed a question coming up a lot on the live chats I have on Saturday evenings. ¬†“Who are are your favorite food reviewers? ¬†What YouTube foodies do you watch most?”

Not everyone is going to be on the same chat (I hope that changes eventually and I’ll have the whole YouTube world watching! haha), so rather than answering the question over and over and over again, I decided that it was past time to make a video about it and put the question to rest, once and for all. ¬†At least to date.

Here is that video:

Now you know! ¬†Thanks for tuning into the channel and if you haven’t subscribed already, I’d love to have you on a regular basis. ¬†Also, make sure to tune into the Saturday chats, live on YouTube at 5 pm, Pacific. ¬†We have a great time!

Take care and I’ll talk to you again real soon!

REVIEW: Nabisco Peeps Oreos

Hola, gang!

Peeps Oreos has arrived. When I spotted these on the store shelf, I immediately began having daymares (nightmares when you’re wide awake) of Swedish Fish Oreos and Blue Raspberry Twinkies. Needless to say, I fully expected to be terrified at first bite.

I love Oreo cookies and whenever a new variety arrives, I cringe. I’m always so afraid Nabisco will bastardize the cookies and tarnish the reputation once again. I have no clue how Swedish Fish Oreos ever made it past Quality Control. I’ve eaten better at a paint store!

So, sit down with me, grab a glass of cold milk, and watch my taste test and review of the Peeps Oreo:

 

There you go, gang! I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for watching. Please SUBSCRIBE if you haven’t already, stalk me on my social networks, and I hope to see you on Saturday’s LIVE chat, 5 PM, Pacific.

HAVE A FREAKING AWESOME DAY!

REVIEW: Popeye’s Chicken Waffle Tenders

Hola, gang!

Today, I ventured out to Popeye’s to try their limited-time Chicken Waffle Tenders.

There has been a butt-load of food reviewers out there running to KFC and taste-testing their new Georgia Gold Chicken. ¬†I choose not to hit every ship that comes along since it tends to bury each other’s reviews and no one wins. ¬†I’m a YouTube Creator, but am¬†also a businessman. ¬†If it’s not going to do a thing for me and my brand, I probably won’t do it, with very few exceptions to that rule. ¬†It’s much more valuable and beneficial to create evergreen videos rather than¬†tent-pole videos. ¬†I want people to be able to watch a video that I made 5 years ago and find it¬†to be as relevant now as it was back when I originally put it out.

I decided that the Popeye’s¬†Chicken Waffle Tenders was a better thing to review. ¬†They were first introduced in 2014 and have made a come-back. ¬†If Popeye’s continues to take them off the menu and bring them back every once in a while, it just makes more sense to me to do this rather than something that is here for a while and may never return. ¬†Tent Pole videos are great to get an initial boost of viewers, but not a lot happens beyond that. ¬†Of course, things that are on a restaurant’s menu full-time¬†are always the best items to do. ¬†But, I digress. ¬†So, without further ado, here is my review of the Popeye’s¬†Chicken Waffle Tenders:

 

There you go, gang!  I hope you enjoyed it and would love to hear your opinions on the Chicken Waffle Tenders.

Leave a comment, share the video if you would, and please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE. ¬†You all are why I do what I do. ūüėČ

HAVE A FREAKING AWESOME DAY!!

REVIEW: Taco Time Crisp Chicken Burrito

Hola, gang!

This time around I’m reviewing the Crisp Chicken Burrito from Taco Time.

Sorry about the lapse in getting reviews out to you here. ¬†I have no excuse, so there we are. ūüėČ ¬†Please hit the channel and check out what else is there.

When I realized that I had yet to review anything from Taco Time, I was gob-smacked. ¬†How could a fast food place with over 300 locations, which opened it’s doors in 1960, have slipped my mind? ¬†So, I hurried over to show you what Taco Time was all about by grabbing one of my old standby favorites, a crisp burrito. ¬†Now, we would call them more of a taquito, but Taco Time has always called them crisp burritos. ¬†As long as it’s yummy, I could really care less what someone calls¬†something. ¬†The beef one is my favorite. ¬†Pretty simple product, but really good. ¬†I wanted to start off my reviews there with something a little different, so I grabbed a Crisp Chicken Burrito. ¬†Here’s the video:

 

If you’re not sure about whether there is a Taco Time in your area, hit the web site and check by typing your state, zip, or whatever into their location finder. ¬†Then, head back¬†to the video here and tell me what you had and what you thought about it.

Have a freaking awesome day, gang, and I’ll see you again real soon.

Tony

REVIEW: Milka OREO Big Crunch Bar

Hola, gang!

Today, I wanted to dig into the new-ish candy bar from Milka, the OREO Big Crunch Bar.

milka oreo big crunch bar

I love just about anything OREO. ¬†The one exception so far was the nasty Swedish Fish cookies. ¬†GAH! ¬†When you’ve gone to the deep, dark depths of something like that, you figure that everything else is looking up. ¬†All sunshine and unicorn farts. ¬†Know what I mean? ¬†When I heard about the new OREO candy bar that Milka was releasing, I was anxious to try it. ¬†Milka has a reputation for putting out some really smooth and creamy chocolate. Ghirardelli chocolate is my all-time favorite, but that’s another story. ¬†The addition of OREO in it was going to be icing on the cake. ¬†So, I gave it a shot:

 

I hope this food review helped you make a more educated decision. ¬†That’s one of my main objectives, although reviews are subjective most of the time. ¬†You guys take care and I’ll talk with you again real soon.

REVIEW: Taco Bell’s Naked Chicken Chalupa

Hola, gang!

What’s all the hubbub, bub? ¬†According to Taco Bell, it’s all about their new, limited time Naked Chicken Chalupa.

This is something that Taco Bell¬†started promoting and creating quite the commotion about an easy month before it’s official public release. ¬†They had all the bloggers and news outlets abuzz with anticipation. ¬†Essentially, to me, it seems liked Taco Bell’s answer to the KFC Double-Down and everyone else’s chicken sandwich. ¬†So, what they did is they created a chalupa shell from a piece of fried chicken and then filled it with lettuce, diced tomatoes, cheese, and a creamy avocado ranch sauce. ¬†So, in typical form, I set out on the launch date (I’m a regular guy, just like all of you) to give it a shot. ¬†Here is the video:

 

There is my take, but I want to know your thoughts.  Have you tried the Naked Chicken Chalupa from Taco Bell yet?  What did you think?  Leave it in the comments and tell me the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Please share this video with your friends and thanks so much for your support.

HAVE A FREAKING AWESOME DAY, GANG!!

REVIEW: McDonald’s Grand Mac: Something New Or Just A Bigger Big Mac?

Here it is, gang!

You’ve been asking me to review the new, limited time Grand Mac from McDonald’s and I’m not going to let you down.

McDonalds Grand Mac

Going into this, I really wasn’t expecting a whole lot. ¬†From their web site, it simply sounded like a larger version of a food product that they have had for decades, the Big Mac. ¬†So? ¬†If Captain Crunch is offered in a new 18 oz size alongside the regular 12 oz box, does that really make it anything new? ¬†I have a hard time swallowing that line of reasoning. ¬†Anyway, here is the review for you and be sure to comment and let me know what your thought:

 

I have some new and fun stuff coming up, so if not already, be sure to subscribe to the Old Nerd Reviews channel on YouTube.

Thanks for tuning in and please share this video around. ¬†That would help a ton! ūüėČ

REVIEW: 7 Eleven Black Cherry Pepsi Slurpee

Hola, gang!

I was planning on doing an “official” review of the new Black Cherry Pepsi Slurpee introduced by 7¬†Eleven, but then things got in the way. ¬†The snow and cold changed things, as did the pipe breaking in the apartment above us and causing the rain shower in our closet. ¬†It all became a major disruption for a while.

When I went into the store, I got the Black Cherry Pepsi Slurpee under the impression that a review was not going to happen any time soon.  Then, I took a sip.  I told the cashier, Justin, that I sure wished I had brought my camera and caught my initial reaction.  I then knew that a review had to happen, regardless of where we were in things.  So, I shot a single take without lights, background props, or effects. Here is the review of the 7 Eleven Black Cherry Pepsi Slurpee with real sugar:

 

There you go, Crony Community. ¬†Have a freaking awesome day and I’ll see you on Friday!

Tony
