Review: Limited Batch Lemon Cream Pie Fudge Stripes, Lemmy Num-Num Fudge Stripes, & Worst BBQ Side?
JFG Nation, let’s talk BBQ sides. Over the weekend many of us went to BBQs and ate lots of grilled meat and, I’m sure, SIDES. Pasta salad. Beans. Green leafy things. All good all good.
But here’s my question to you: WHAT IS THE WORST SIDE?
This is clearly a very personal question but the gist is simple: what is the side that you will always avoid at an outdoor potluck style BBQ? Here’s my list, in no particular order:
ANYTHING WITH BEETS: here’s the thing – I enjoy beets even though people say they taste like soil. But there’s something about that beet juice staining everything it touches that is really off putting for me. Beets and feta that results in pink water GAAAAH. Keep your bloody beets.
ANYTHING WITH MAYO: I love mayo. But I always give the hairy eyeball to whoever brings mayo-based things to a BBQ. How well do I know you? Do I trust that you handle mayo properly? Did this sit your car for the entire ride here? How far do you live? Did you mix sour cream into this? Oh HELL no.
ANYTHING WITH DILL: Love dill pickles. But open a salad up and it’s covered in green eyelashes?? I’M OUT ON THAT.
What say you, JFG Nation? What is the worst BBQ side? Comment below.
Today’s junk food: Limited Batch Lemon Cream Pie Fudge Stripes & Lemmy Num-Num Fudge Stripes!!
FINALLY FOUND THESE SUCKERS. Both the original limited edition version and the Minions version.
DO THESE TASTE GOOD? Yes, they’re ok.
WHY OR WHY NOT? These are good but not great. First right off the bat there is really no difference between the two besides the icing distribution.
They smell wonderful – like a lemon pound cake. Bright, and full of baked good aroma. The texture is standard Fudge Stripe – crispy thin cookie with a waxy icing.
The flavor was a tiny bit disappointing. Not sure what I was expecting – these have the same type of flavor a lemon pound cake would have: light lemon flavor, no sour, no zing, no tart. Just a basic lemon flavor that was a bit muted due to the sugar cookie. The icing was good and helped push the lemon flavor back to the forefront; these basically taste like Lemon Archway cookies.
So yeah – if you know what these taste like then you know what these Fudge Stripes taste like in crispier form. Taste good, nothing Earth shattering.
ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW? These are exactly the same cookies! No need to buy both.
PURCHASED AT: Walmart, Frederick, MD.
WHERE FOUND IN STORE? Cardboard kiosk along the grocery aisles.
COST? $2.00 each on sale.
