Tropickles! OR Tropickles? Walmart's Idea for Satisfying Cravings

Not sure if this is an idea who time has come or what!  Yes, I know lots of pregnant ladies crave pickles and ice cream.  But can you ever remember anybody craving fruit punch flavored pickles?  Not sure how the foodie folks at Walmart came up with this idea.  Maybe there were a bunch of pregnant ladies working in that department.  ☺





As usual, PopSugar is on top of things all thing food-related and has published a review of this product.




Chowhound also has something to say about them.

“As unconventional as it may sound, this unlikely flavor combination is one for the books. Tangy-sweet bread and butter pickle juice against a salty peanut butter topping makes for an incredibly rich, balanced ice-cream-eating experience.”




A 24 oz. jar less than $2.  
Are your curious to try them?
Great Value Tropickles at Walmart.






I shop at Walmart a lot. But when it comes to strange and exotic foods, I try to talk my kids into trying them out first.  What?  I got the idea from an old cereal commercial I used to watch on TV where kids were curious to try a new cereal and the way they tested it was to coax their baby brother into eating it first.  If he liked it then it must be OK.  So?  If it's a new food product?  If my kids like it, then it must be OK!

Foodie Friday : Experiencing the Joy of Salsa

This week's Foodie Friday focus is on salsa!

* * *
There was once a time when the recipe for fresh salsa was simply diced tomatoes, onions, green bell peppers, lime juice, red pepper or a jalapeno, salt to taste; cilantro, optional. I love salsa!  It's a great way to eat your veggies.  Several years back, moved into a new neighborhood and was at the local grocery store. Walked down an aisle and on the shelves were bottles of every kind of salsa imaginable.





Some of them were made with sweet fruits like mangoes and peaches! Oh the wonder of it all! Had no idea salsa came in that many flavors. Gave me all kinds of foodie ideas. Sharing some recipes .

Why keep all these delicious delights to myself?

Foodie Friday : It's Flipping Foodie Friday!

Are your weeks flying by fast or is it just me? Feels like it was a #FoodieFriday just a couple of days ago.  One week passed already and it's time for another post!





So this is what I'm sharing. Ever hear of Flipboard?

Heard of it. Tried it. Got confused because of my pea-sized brain and gave up on it! It's a good thing that my online friends are persistent. One fellow blogger says she is using this fantastic tool and enjoying much success! She was so bubbly and energetic, I decided to have at it one more time!  Eureka!  I DID IT!!



This time I created my Flipboard account ( https://flipboard.com/@cmoneyspinner ) and a brand new magazine. See content below.


My I Like Eating Channel on Flipboard


Tweeted it out for Foodie Friday. ( When I finally get something to work right, I have to brag! :) )



Just before I got started, received a link to an article in my eMail that explained how easy it was to publish successfully on Flipboard. (How to Use Flipboard to Reach Thousands of Readers | niume.com) That really made things clear. After my account and my magazine were both created, I add the Flip.it bookmarklet sharing tool to my browser bookmarks bar. From that point forward, it's all been smooth sailing.


Did a search on Twitter with the terms “#FoodieFriday, Flipboard”. The results are fabulous! Wish there were more. Nevertheless … Enjoy! :)

Foodie Friday : Winter Salad Binging

There's #FoodieFriday, #FollowFriday, #FriendlyFollow … whatever! It's the weekend!  Just pick a food and drink topic to share and run with it! 



Connie Guttersen, author, dietitian, nutritionist, a lady on Twitter (@ConnieGuttersen) inspired me to pick salad for my topic.  She shared a Tweet (below) about all the different kinds of lettuce that are “worthy”.  Appreciated the info, but from there it was a leap into “winter salads”. Why? Because during the cold months, salad is not always on my menu. Bowls and bowls of warm and hearty soups. Yes!  But salad? Not so much.  That has to change.

Winter survival comes in the form of comfort food - the richer and heartier the meal, the easier it is to handle the cold. But we still need salad. In fact, with all those hefty stews and baked pastas, salads are imperative to keep things in balance.

Do You Heart Pomegranates?

Do you love pomegranates? I know I do! I would even like to start a movement with the goal of adding pomegranates to the traditional American Thanksgiving cornucopia. (Care to participate in the Thanksgiving cornucopia POLL and cast your vote? )


https://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-images-pomegranate-juice-glass-pomegranates-white-image28447719#res4728141


Pomegranates are so exotic and enjoy an exotic history!   Indeed it is the food of myth and legends.

They are the wonder food of ancient civilizations like Persia and Israel.  

In fact, in ancient Greece, pomegranates were considered an aphrodisiac.  

Two respected modern publications - The Globe and Mail, “Canada’s #1 national newspaper” and The NHS in England – both claim that the claims that pomegranates are a “super food” can be proven.













Shared the link via my post stream on Google Plus stream, but in case you didn't see it there, view it here. If you are on Pinterest, please visit my pinboard dedicated to POMEGRANATES? Started the board a couple of years ago and to date it has 100 pins: recipes (food and drinks), beauty and healthcare products, etc.
