Review: Limited Edition Tastykake Red Velvet Mini Donuts, The Tesla’s INSANE MODE, & Marshawn Lynch Is A Clown
Junk Food Nation, it’s “Super Bowl week,” which means I’ve been avoiding all media coverage of sports. Seriously. I like in-depth coverage (e.g., I really enjoyed the coaches’ feed during the College Football Playoff championship game) but this round the clock coverage of absolutely NOTHING on ESPN and NFL networks – YUCK. I turned on ESPN to watch Around the Horn yesterday for the first time in like two weeks, and promptly turned it off. The inane yammering gave me a headache immediately.
Still, since I look at ESPN.com at least once every day, I do catch small tidbits here and there. My favorite sound bite: Marshawn Lynch’s
Marshawn Lynch had one thing to say today. And he said it over. And over. And over. And over. And… http://t.co/Unr5KFy6hG

My opinion has always been that I don’t care that Lynch doesn’t like to talk to media, because I think listening to athlete press conferences is a waste of time anyways. I don’t care what Lebron thinks of DeflateGate. I don’t care what Tom Brady thinks about his legacy. Even as a huge sports fan, I like to watch games first, HOT TAKES / idiot commentary second, and waaaay down the list athlete quotes / press conferences. Unless you’re asking them about what junk food they like. I could read that all day long.
Second story I’ve enjoyed recently: people experiencing the new INSANE MODE of the Tesla S P85D. Apparently, this electric car can go from 0 to 60 in THREE SECONDS. WHAAAAAAA: Check it out here:
If an electric car can do that, I can only assume it’s because a nuclear explosion is occurring under the hood. Can we make sure that a hole isn’t being ripped in the space-time continuum every time INSANE MODE gets triggered? Is this how warp speed is discovered, Star Trek fans?
By the way, if you want to see the non-bleeped version of this video, go here. Listening to the older woman drop “sh*t” over and over still brings a smile to my face.
What do you think about Marshawn Lynch or the INSANE MODE on the Tesla? Let me know in the comments below.
Today’s junk food: Limited Edition Tastykake Red Velvet Mini Donuts!!
Throw another twig on the red velvet wildfire sweeping the nation. I’ve enjoyed many a Tastykake donut through the years, and now they have Limited Edition Tastykake Red Velvet Mini Donuts. These were sent to me this week, fresh off of my gushing about the Red Velvet Oreos.
Limited Edition Tastykake Red Velvet Mini Donuts are powdered on the outside, and apparently blood red on the inside. Almost TOO red…
Limited Edition Tastykake Red Velvet Mini Donuts have lots and lots of ingredients. I see cocoa…but where does the cream cheese frosting flavor come from? Unsure.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO It’s always fun to open these bags though. These Limited Edition Tastykake Red Velvet Mini Donuts are tiny life preservers of baked goodness. With bloody red insides.
I smelled one of these Limited Edition Tastykake Red Velvet Mini Donuts, and I really couldn’t ascertain any cream cheese aroma…it smelled just like a normal powdered donut. Nice and sweet, but nothing distinct yet. Hm.
I popped an entire Limited Edition Tastykake Red Velvet Mini Donut into my mouth and chewed. DELICIOUS. But….drumroll…I could not taste any red velvet!! *sad trombone*
Look, this is not a knock against Tastykake – love the brand. But basically this tasted like one of their normal powdered donuts. Which, to be clear, is not a BAD thing – but it didn’t taste like red velvet to me. As I sat chewing, the powdered sugar really overwhelmed whatever flavor the donut had. I could sort of taste a cocoa flavor to the donut, but honestly I wasn’t sure. If you’re going to claim red velvet flavor, I want to taste it IMMEDIATELY. This did not have it. Sad.
These did taste good, however, as a general powdered donut. Moreover, the insides WERE a wonderful bloody red, so this has fun factor written all over it. So, if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll like these. But red velvet this was not.
PURCHASED AT: Sent to me
COST: Unsure, but the bag unit price was $4.78
