Monster Mints

Monster Mints

A girl who just came back from Germany brought with her super cool mints called Monster Mints. I tried the red one which is Cinnamon flavored and fuck is it strong. It tastes like the red Chiclets packet except 100 times as powerful. Its so strong that its painful to keep on your tongue. Do they sell these in Kuwait? I haven’t seen them before but I will be requesting them from Sultan Center. [Link]

Subways Taste

Post by Mark

subway

Had lunch at Subway Salmiya yesterday. It was very disappointing. I ordered the Subway Melt and the Italian BMT and both of them the ingredients they used looked a lot different then the usual. The two sandwiches also didn’t taste like usual. Hopefully this isn’t the begining of the end for Subway in Kuwait. I have seen this happen before in Lebanon, everything was going perfect then suddenly the owner in Lebanon decided to use local ingredients, suddenly everything started to taste drastically different and then later he was shutdown by Subway International.

On the bright side they are accepting Sub Club cards once again, this time they are using different colored and sized stickers.

Post by Mark

root beer

Sultan got a new shipment of A&W Root Beer. I Was at Sultan Center Souk Sharq today and I noticed they had a lot of A&W Root Beer (not diet) cases and I just got a phonecall now from Sultan Centers “Just Ask” department asking me how many cases I wanted and that they would be put aside for me since I requested the product from them. Pretty cool.

Why does a sandwich made by someone else always taste better than one you make yourself? [Link]

Make Your Own Softdrink

Never knew making my own softdrink could be this dangerous. Out of 13 pages on instructions, maybe 10 are warnings. [Link]

Lose Weight with McDonalds

Post by Mark

Over a month ago I posted about a woman who is making her own movie about how McDonalds is healthy for you and today on CNN there is an article about how this other woman lost 37 pounds after eating McDonalds for 90 days! I hope people who watched and believed the movie Super Size Me know that it was all bullshit. [Link]

Review: Beef with Classic BBQ Sauce

Post by Mark

This is another Healthy Choice I will be reviewing. This meal looked special, it didn’t feel like a casual dinner meal but more of a special occasion one. Its Boneless Beef with Classic BBQ Sauce, Seasoned Potatoes and Vegetables.

Cooking the meal was extremely easy and quick, the aroma that was coming out of the microwave while it was cooking was very tantalizing. Nataly even came down to the kitchen to see what I was cooking.

Once the meal was done I took it out of the microwave and took a picture. The meal surprisingly looked good and expensive. Nice large chunks of beef covered in BBQ sauce, I couldn’t wait to eat it. It tasted pretty good for a microwave meal. The chunks of beef were tender and juicy, the BBQ sauce was fairly heavy in flavor, the fries were yummy, and the vegetables as usual always end up tasting really good. But, the portion was really small and I am not really that big a fan of BBQ sauce specially when its heavily flavored like this. Now I have started to accept the small portions of microwavable meals but I have also accepted the fact that they don’t cost that much anyway. This meal cost KD1.5 which is more expensive then most other meals. But as I said earlier on, this is more of a special occasion dinner. The final score is 3.5 out of 5.
