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.

Regards,

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.

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.

Regards,

Tony

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.

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

Hola, gang!

Happy Friday to everyone! ¬†I hope it will be a terrific weekend ahead for all of you. ¬†Today, I’m un-boxing Koffee Box, a new coffee subscription box service, delivering unique k-cup coffee to your door each month.

Koffee Box Unboxing

While the product is good, I had some suggestions for the company and how they can make things even better. Here’s the video:

 

Next, I took the time for a live chat on Facebook Live where we did some chatting about my recent movie shoot, social eating from Taco Bell, and coffee talk.  Three elements that work wonderfully together!  If you missed it, you can watch the replay on the Old Nerd Reviews Facebook Page.

There you go, gang! ¬†Thanks for your support and tuning into the YouTube channel. ¬†I’ll see you with another review on Sunday!

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.

7eleven black cherry pepsi slurpee

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!

REVIEW: McDonald’s Chicken McGriddle

Hola, gang!

I’m pretty exited about being able to review the NEW¬†McDonald’s Chicken McGriddle.

McDonald's Chicken McGriddle

As you know, I live in Washington state and the Chicken McGriddle is (or was) being test marketed only in Ohio and Florida. ¬†How it got out here, I don’t know. ¬†I did some research and couldn’t find anything about it moving outside from those two states, so it’s a tad confusing.

There are a few of my foodie friends who have tried this from the McDonald’s Secret Menu, but that was simply them asking that the cooks place a McChicken patty inside the McGriddle cakes. ¬†It was not the official one being rolled out. ¬†This official Chicken McGriddle is different. ¬†The patty does not appear or taste the same as the McChicken.

Regardless of what is going on, I was thrilled that I was having the chance to review it for you all. ¬†I love McGriddles! ¬†I tend to grab the less expensive Sausage McGriddle, but they have a few other really tasty ones. ¬†I need to get around to trying the steak one. ¬†I’m also a fan of their McChicken sandwich. ¬†So, without further ado, here is the food review for today:

 

As I did, if you’re interested in trying the new McDonald’s Chicken McGriddle, simply ask the cashier¬†whether they have it. ¬†You obviously never know!

Thanks so much for tuning into the channel, all of your shares and comments, and I’ll see if you in a couple days!

Regards,

Tony

Hickory Farms Mustard REVIEW And LIVE YouTube Chat! | 1/8/2017

Hola, gang!

hickory farms gift basket

We did a live YouTube chat and food review today. ¬†I received a couple jars of Hickory Farms mustard from my son and was anxious to try it out and share the results with you all. ¬†I have some Hickory Farms Honey And Pineapple Mustard and a some Hickory Farms Sweet Hot Mustard. ¬†I’ve loved anything from Hickory Farms since I was first introduced to them as a kid. ¬†They still kiosk in when Thanksgiving and Christmas rolls around and used to have a full retail store in the local mall here. ¬†Summer sausage, cheeses….just #nomnomnom!

Doing live chats rather than always doing regular YouTube videos always brings a dialog element to them. ¬†They really are different and a lot of fun. ¬†So, if you didn’t¬†have a chance to hit it live, here is the archived video for you:

 

I’m trying to make sure I announce any live chats ahead of time now, so make sure you are following me on Twitter and Facebook, at least. ¬†Since this was a regular Sunday release, I figured you all come on over without the announcement….although, I did announce it. ūüėČ

HAVE A FREAKING AWESOME DAY!!

REVIEW: 7 Eleven AM Sunrise Breakfast Pizza

Hola, gang!

Today, I’m reviewing the new 7 Eleven AM Sunrise Breakfast Pizza. ¬†You know how much I love breakfast foods. ¬†It’s the best meal of the day and is something I can eat for any meal.

When the AM Sunrise Pizza rolled into my local 7 Eleven, I knew immediately that this was a must-do review. ¬†I originally thought it was going to be like a french bread type thing in their deli section, but it turned out to be an actual pizza for breakfast. ¬†You can either grab is by the slice or as an entire pie for a mere $5.99. ¬†It boasts Mozzarella and cheddar cheese, turkey sausage, ham, bacon, scrambled eggs, white gravy as a pizza sauce, all on top of a biscuit-like crust. ¬†Everybody is making a morning appearance! ¬†Grab a cup of blueberry coffee and you’re all set. ¬†So, here is the review of the AM Sunrise Pizza from 7 Eleven. ¬†Enjoy!

 

There you go, gang!  Thanks for watching, subscribing, and sharing my videos with others.  You guys rock!!

HAVE A FREAKING AWESOME DAY!!
