Review: CVS Gold Emblem Vanilla Bean Coffee Cookies, Maple Leaf Creme Cookies, Pomegranate Flavored Dark Chocolate Bites (So Good Exclusive) & My Office Bathroom Plus Lysol…

Junk Food Nation, close your pretty ears if you’re easily offended/grossed out.  I think we can all agree that guys, in general, are disgusting.  And male bathrooms, especially in office buildings, are no exception.  And it’s for all the reasons you’d think – awful smells, awful noises (blech), and for some reason EVERYTHING IS WET ALL THE TIME EVERY TIME.

Well, today I was confronted with something new – someone, in a stall, armed with a can of Lysol or some other horrible air freshener in a can.  I was washing my hands when I heard some horrible noises coming from a stall, and then the dude IN the stall gave a little cough, followed by the unmistakable sound of an aerosol can being fired off in all directions.  And so now there was a faint lavender smell mixing with all the other yuck in the bathroom.

Wow.  That was the first time I’d ever seen/heard/experience that. I mean, I get it, you want to be considerate and aid in the de-gross-ifying of the male bathroom – but what does that say about YOU? That you know you have such awful odors coming from your body that you NEED PORTABLE AIR FRESHENER TO SPRAY DOWN THE AREA WHEN YOU’RE DONE?  That you’ve PRE-PLANNED THIS.  I mean, has the stink overwhelmed YOU so much that YOU feel the need to bring some air modifier just to get through the session???  My mind is blown.

And on THAT happy note, today’s junk food is a review I did over on So Good: CVS Gold Emblem Vanilla Bean Coffee Cookies, Maple Leaf Creme Cookies, & Pomegranate Flavored Dark Chocolate Bites!  Here’s a preview:


So Good Blog readers!  It’s Eric, your friendly neighborhood Junk Food Guy again, coming to you this Monday afternoon. I’m still a little exhausted from Daylight Savings and from tailgating all day yesterday, but I digress.  First, I wanted to let you all know that Episode 16 of my podcast, the Nosh Show, is out today!  Go take a listen.

Second, CVS Gold Emblem sent me another batch of goodies recently.  I reviewed a bunch of their stuff a while back, and here they are with another care package for the Fall.  It arrived looking like this:



It’s a big metal red tin full of snacks, and it was topped off by a big ol red fleece blanket.  Such a random gift.  Well, it was soft!  Can’t complain.  But let’s take a look INSIDE the bucket, shall we?



BA-bAM! Thanks, CVS Gold Emblem!  The theme of this generous donation to my stomach was that as the weather got colder, it’s time for movies, family, popcorn, and other things that make the Fall wonderful. I concur, and this is a cornucopia of goodies.  Let’s take a closer look…

There you go. So Good has the rest of the review.

    Have you commented on the propriety of placing cell phone calls from inside the stall? I think that is a topic that needs discussing.

  2. Elisa says:

    If there happens to be a window in the restroom and it can open, you could crack it open a bit. A bit of fresh air circulating should help get the odor out. Just remember to close it at some point or before the end of the day.

Ryan is the fast food guru. His soft dulcet tones will make you want to eat french fries, immediately.

Dubba is an ice cream wizard. He's got two spoons and he's not afraid to use them. Unless it's something spicy.
