Ranking Random Snacks and Sweets from Guatemala

A short while back, I ranked some random Japanese snacks and sweets that I received as an early Christmas present (links can be found below).  I was asked if I was going to do any more posts like this, and so I decided to order a couple more snack and treat assortments from various other countries off of Amazon.  Today, we’re going to start with the selection I received from Guatemala, which just so happened to come in a cool box and even included a nifty little bookmark!

Ranking Random Japanese Sweets

Last week, I ranked some random Japanese snacks, courtesy of Mother Duck.  This time, we have a far more substantial list focusing on a plethora of sweets!  Seeing as the majority of the text on these packages was written in Japanese, I did my best to find out what these things were.  There are a few that I couldn’t figure out, but the provided photo should at least give you an idea of what they look like, even if the placement doesn’t match this list perfectly.

Making Toriel’s Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie from Undertale

For Thanksgiving this year, Mother Duck and I were inspired to try replicating the butterscotch cinnamon pie that Toriel bakes in Undertale.  As far as I can tell, this is not a pre-existing recipe, so I had to consult some cooking websites that we were less familiar with for some directions.  It took us two tries to get it right, but we were eventually successful.  A brief account of our endeavors shall begin below, but if you’re eager to make the pie right this instant, I shall provide the link to the recipe we used right here.

A Very Spicy Chip Review

In the recent past, Mother Duck and I bought a variety pack of snacks for reviewing and general munching purposes.  Recently, we decided it would be fun to do another similar review, this time focusing on spicy snacks.  Like last time, our lucky inanimate contestants will be rated in order from worst to best, regardless of how this will affect their self-esteem.  So get yourself a glass of milk, and let’s get started!

A Very Picky Chip Review

One of our favorite Youtubers, Brutalmoose, recently did a video reviewing various chips, which inspired us to do a review of our own.  During our subsequent visit to the grocery store, we decided to purchase one of the various Frito-Lay “Flavor Mix” bags, which come with six varieties of snacks.  I don’t really enjoy flavored chips, so the only one with which I was familiar were the Cheetos.  But soon enough, we would discover whether or not the Duck had been missing out on a wild world of wonderful flavor or if I would merely confirm that my preference for only the most traditional of chips was very well justified.  Mother Duck and I originally gave these scores out of 5, but in the end, it worked best just to rank them from worst to best.

Recreating the Nabisco Chocolate Wafer Icebox Cake

Mother Duck used to enjoy a certain dessert made from chocolate wafer cookies layered with whipped cream.  You would then place the treat into the fridge for a few hours, allowing the cookies to soften, creating something akin to a chocolate cake.  Unfortunately, the original Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers used in the recipe seem to be discontinued, so Mother Duck and I recently went about finding an alternative.

Dunkaroos Are Back: The Duck’s Verdict

In recent times, an old treat from my ducklinghood has returned.  Perhaps you remember it…Dunkaroos was a snack from the 90’s that included small cookies that you dunked (hence the name) in frosting.  (In fact, they’re kind of like those snacks where you get several crackers and can spread cheese on them.  Which were also a childhood favorite of mine.)  I remember enjoying these quite a bit when I was young, and though they were apparently discontinued, I recently learned that they’re back!  Naturally, I just had to try them to see if they’re as good as I remember.

A Festive Graham Cracker House…and Grumpy Snowman

Merry Christmas, dear readers!  To celebrate this most festive of days, I have a silly little story to share with you all!  We were recently watching YouTuber Barry Lewis make a tiny gingerbread house (video below), and it inspired us to make our own…except it wouldn’t be tiny, and it wouldn’t be made of gingerbread!  Since we felt like cobbling together a miniature house out of whatever we happened to have lying around, we decided to make…a graham cracker house, decorated with old Halloween candy (we didn’t plan on eating it anyway) and any other appropriate ingredients!

Fried Christmas Treats and Free Movies

About two weeks before Christmas, Mother Duck and I had a rather fun weekend involving the yearly Christmas festival. For the first time ever, the event spanned two days instead of just one in an effort to decrease the crowd levels, and we…well, we actually went both days, summoned as we were by the call of delicious festival food.
