Tiny chicken strip pieces that will just burn, Review

Usually after you've taken out most of the chicken pieces in a bag of chicken strips you're left with these tiny little pieces of chicken that are just going to burn if you put them in for the normal time and some people just throw them out. BUT if you take them out a little early, you can have bonus bite-size chicken!! Highly recommended!

"Review of my cat", Review

Review of my cat

It's a pretty cool song. it starts off kinda abstract, and then after the "I'm out of chips!" about a minute in it starts to pick up and become really energetic and then basically turns into a video game song. The part at 2:00 is my favorite.

Reggio's Pepperoni Frozen Pizza Review

I've had the cheese version of this and remember liking it. It's really quite different from the kinda pizza that Digiorno/Tombstone/Jack's/etc aims at and that should be taken into account in reviewing it.

It brags about a "famous butter crust" and indeed the crust is pretty buttery and soft, in a good way. The whole pizza is pretty soft and the cheese is a little gooey but not excessively so. The pepperonis aren't as good as on some other pizzas but that's probably because this pizza seems like it's supposed to be more moist than others. The pepperonis honestly reminded me of the kind you'd buy at a store to put on homemade pizzas.

Luigi vs Lugia

This is a question that has been wondered throughout the ages because Luigi the plumber and Lugia the Pokemon have similar looking names. I finally made them fight and apparently Luigi won because of his wavedash and his Super Jump Punch kicked Lugia's butt. They had a second match where Luigi just stood around the whole match and didn't do anything and he still won.

Credit Cardcaptor Sakura Review

Credit Cardcaptor Sakura, unlike the regular Cardcaptor Sakura will capture your credit card and use it to pay for new episodes of her anime, costing you ridiculous amounts of money. 0/10 do not recommend, watch out for her when you're watching anime.

IPFW french fries review

I tried IPFW's french fries and they were crispy and hot, and not soggy at all unlike Snider's gross fries. They tasted like Burger King's rather than like government-controlled food. They were like $1.50 too so they're probably actually cheaper than fast food places.

"Cheeseburger" becoming a dirty word, Review

Many companies seem to be deathly afraid of labeling their product a "cheeseburger" now. Just looking at IPFW's vending machines there is a "Double beef stacker with cheese sandwich", "Hamburger bun, beef patty, cheese", and "Beef charbroil with cheese". Cheeseburger is OK to call your product!! Don't think otherwise! Kid Cuisine is also in on this, with their "beef patty with cheese and bun".

Not OK!

Making a smoothie with bad-quality berries

Some fruits are just not meant to be put into a smoothie at all in the forms you usually get them in. I've tried to make grape smoothies lots of times, but the skins on the grapes ruin it. Don't try to use weird strawberries either, the smoothie will turn out weird. Actually get either fresh fruit or frozen berries that are specifically for smoothies.

Fast Choice Pizza Charbroil with Cheese Review

I saw a "pizza burger" in the vending machines when I was walking around Ivy Tech forever ago and I regretted not trying it. Now, I tried what seemed to be a pizza burger. It was NOT soggy or anything when microwaved, and it was basically just a patty with pizza sauce and a slice of cheese on it. Like, pasta cheese rather than American cheese. It honestly did not taste very much like a pizza, but rather more like goulash. And, judging it as a goulash burger rather than a pizza burger it's surprisingly good for $2.25.

Police giving me free donuts and cocoa Review

One time I got to college and tons of police guys were parked at Kettler, and I went inside and they were giving out free donuts and free coffee and hot cocoa. I got a free sprinkle donut and got some hot cocoa. The donut was rad, and the hot cocoa was really creamy and nice unlike the regular hot cocoa at college which is just cocoa mix and water. This was like, real cocoa mix. In retrospect I regret not dipping the donut in there to see if that was any good.

Chemistry 115 Lab 3 Review

All semester the chemistry labs were really hard, and then SUDDENLY we get assigned lab number 3 towards the end of the semester. It was almost the easiest thing we did and most of it was sitting around waiting for water to boil. I would totally recommend this lab except you don't get to pick the labs you do anyway haha.

Getting two homeworks assigned in the last week of class right before finals, review

The last week before finals is called "dead week" and you're not supposed to be doing much, presumably so students can study for finals and stuff instead of wasting time on homework. One of my professors assigned TWO HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS with a due date during dead week, spaced TWO DAYS apart. aaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Mini Twin Cheeseburgers Review

I dunno what the actual brand name for these are since I threw the package away but IPFW's vending machines sometimes have twin cheeseburgers. Unlike some other microwaveable burgers, for the recommended cooking time these don't turn out soggy. It's sorta bland but it tastes pretty decent despite that. Also the price is $1.75 which isn't that bad compared to some of the $3 items.

Prescription Savings Card review

Prescription Savings Card claims to lower the cost of FREE drugs. I don't really understand how this is supposed to work, because if the drugs are already free then you can't make them any cheaper.

I think, all the drugs are so bad that they're being sold for a negative amount of money just so the company can get rid of them ASAP. Judging from the customers in the review in the upper right ("IT SUX") and the doctor on the left it seems that these drugs cause you to loose teeth and grow a beard and a unibrow which to me are pretty serious side effects that should have been mentioned.

You may think that this card may not be accepted very many places because of this, but thankfully this card is accepted at OVER NINE THOUSAND pharmacies. Not that it matters, because YOU don't qualify for Prescription Savings Card.

Confusingly, you can save on drugs not covered in this plan.

More Samsung Galaxy reviews

Galaxy S5: The Galaxy S5 is a cool phone that runs pretty fast and its camera is good. It has expandable storage so I have tons of room for squirrel photos and I have never really had a problem with it.

Galaxy S7 Edge: a k00ler phone with a curved screen. Unfortunately this means that it's very hard to find a tempered glass screen protector for it, and the ones that do exist don't really cover the whole screen. Also, it's easy to accidentally turn on multitasking.

Galaxy S0: I tried to review the Galaxy S0 but I'm pretty sure it's actually literally nothing. Refer to my review on air.

Galaxy ∫e^x dx: This phone is just e^x+constant. It only came out because ∫ looks like S.

Galaxy S-1: The Galaxy S negative 1 is the same thing as the Galaxy S1 except it's composed of antimatter and it's very hard to use because of the annihilation.

Galaxy S1 Edge: This phone was created in the distant future when Samsung kept increasing the number before it finally rolled over to 1. They weren't able to make the non-Edge version because the Galaxy S1 already exists but the Galaxy S1 Edge came out before Samsung realized the number rolled over. As a result it's a really futuristic phone but it's not very compatible with 2016 technologies so it has limited use.

Littieri's Pepperoni Pizza Calzone Review

I forgot to bring pizza with me and there were no pizza wraps so I tried the $3 Littieri's Pepperoni stuffed Calzone. It advertised "authentic bread with flavorful fillings" and it actually had microwaving instructions, so I put it in for like 1:15. It came out really soft and poofy and it's tastes pretty nice, and tasted like proper pizza crust rather than like Lunchmakers (so authentic bread is right). There was transparent tape on the package for some reason, holding it together which I thought was weird. It smells decent and while it's really soft you don't necessarily need a plate as long as you're careful.

The calzone is pretty spicy from the pepperonis and it tasted alright. The taste isn't amazing (it's sorta like rising crust frozen pizza) and the texture is pretty bad. It's sorta mushy and the cheese isn't great.

Like before, I think I'd prefer the regular pizza for a little bit more money, though it's a long walk to Walb from Kettler.

IPFW Vending Machine Pizza Wrap Review

The pizza wraps have been kind of hard to find, and for good reason: they're pretty good actually.

The wrap had no instructions on it so I heated it up for 30 seconds which still left it mostly cold. I guessed that was good enough and just ate it. It also came with a dipping cup (?) of marinara sauce which was kind of hard to use because ingredients kept falling into it. I think maybe instead you're supposed to spread it out over something and dip into that instead of directly using the cup.

The pizza taste is very much like a Lunchmakers pizza, which I think is probably from the tortilla used in place of a crust. The inside has pepperoni as an entire layer so there's TONS of pepperoni in there, and there's Italian sausages which give it a very spicy taste. The cheese reminded me of Lunchmakers too. This isn't a surprise since they both seem like they're meant to be eaten cold.

The pizza has lots of meat in it and it's very flavorful and quite spicy. It's honestly not a huge upgrade from Lunchmakers in pure flavor but it feels a lot more filling because there's so much and because of how juicy and nice it is. It's $3 which is kinda expensive but still cheaper than the cafeteria pizza (which is like ~$3.50 with tax?). Honestly, I might as well just pay the extra 50 cents for the awesome pizza in the cafeteria, especially with how hard it is to find the pizza wraps.

Austin Grilled Cheese cracker sandwiches, Review

Unlike the peanut butter or peanut butter and cheese crackers these crackers attempt to be grilled cheese sandwiches. It tastes pretty similar to one, but it's all dry and hard (as expected for a cracker) so it doesn't entirely work out all that well. The cheese is also way different, providing an overall really different experience.
