Those Cheetos folks just keep ’em coming

I have a history of posting on foods I find interesting. No brand has done more (well, maybe Mt. Dew) to try new things than Cheetos. Here is one of the latest from the fine folks at Lays – Wild Habanero Cheetos! Alright, I didn’t try them (I know I am letting you down there) but found them interesting enough to snap a quick pic.   Although the original crunch treat is still going strong after its introduction in 1948, my favorite all-time Cheetos flavors were Crunchy Nachos Cheetos from back in the late 90’s and the Cool Ranch Cheetos that died out almost instantly in 2003.  Want to see what they have created in the US over the years?  Check out this Wikipedia...

Sometimes smaller is better

My trend of posting entries related to Mountain Dew (or Cheetos) continues! Eric brought in some very cool Mt. Dew bottles to the office and I was struck by how small they were. These are not your typical 16 oz bottles, but 12 oz. Big deal right? Four ounces. Well, I have been a fan of smaller portions when it comes to liquid refreshment – even back to the college days of filling our kitchen table with the “dead soldiers” of empty bottles of Little Kings Cream Ale. Whether it is a beer or a soft drink, I am a slow drinker. The problem with beer used to be that it was warm before I finished a regular sized one – with soft drinks, the same thing. When I get a bottle of Mountain Dew now, it literally takes me three or four sittings to finish one. The sweet is just too sweet. I think he found them at HEB in a 12-pack or something. Oh, and yeah, I did sort of cheat in the photo by placing it next to a 1-liter Coke not the traditional 16 oz. All the other photos I took of it didn’t show the size difference well. Trust me though – these are some tiny...

Part of my four-day visit to my Houston home was the need to get some fresh food.  One of my biggest gripes about trying to eat better is trying to fit my peculiarities.  I am not a big fan of melon in general – most of them are just too sweet.  Honeydew however, is just right.  The problem with even honeydew is that you have to cut it, clean it, de-rind it, cube it… we’re talking a lot of work. Apparently, the honeydew market is not big enough for grocery stores to cube it by itself.  Sure, there is a ton of watermelon cubed, plenty of cantelope.   Heck, there are even countless little buckets of a ‘variety’ of cubed melon.  If you just like honeydew by itself, you are on your own.  NOT ANYMORE!!! Yes, the Kroger on Eldridge and W. Little York has it!!  Of course now that I live in San Marcos and there are no Krogers in SM, I am still left out.  But you know what?  I can still grab some everytime I come to Houston. One of the other peeves I have had about eating well is salad.  I LOVE salad – I just don’t like going through all the preparation.  Cutting up the lettuce is the easy part – the problem is grating cheese, making croutons, cooking and slicing up chicken breast… it...
