I was excited when this product first came in - Fair Trade, 72% cacao, and Belgian chocolate - what could go wrong? What could go wrong… the taste. The chocolate is very chalky and not smooth, and there's so much cayenne that it just burns your mouth and you can't taste anything else. Balance the heat with the flavor of chocolate…please!

It's no surprise that the first ingredient is ketchup, because all that I taste is ketchup - with a little bit of cayenne pepper. The barbecue sauce itself is a little thin and tough to brush on. Yes I know they say they've been in business since 1935 and that they come from Texas, but this recipe still needs a bit more work. One benefit is 2 tablespoons is just 15 calories.

Here's a different idea - taking pieces of coconut, slicing them into strips, toasting them, adding some sugar and some salt. Because it is coconut it is high in fat: 517 calories per bag, 31.5 grams of fat, 36 grams of sugars. The taste is what you would expect, coconut, and they are recommending sprinkling on salads, cereals, yogurts and ice cream. Better than just eating right out of the bag. Imported from Thailand.

Here's a cereal that's designed for kids. 22 grams of whole grains per cup, just 110 calories, and get this, just 1 gram of sugars. The problem is that there is no banana flavor and frankly I'm not sure that kids are going to like this without adding more of their own sugar - but don't do that - add blueberries or a sliced banana instead.

This is more like a relish than a salsa. One absolutely delicious relish. The veggies, corn, carrots, pinto beans, black beans, peppers, onion, and celery are all cut in big pieces, are crispy and let me say one more time, absolutely delicious. Very fresh tasting and you couldn't make a better salsa/relish yourself. Eat it by itself, use it on top of anything and you won't be disappointed.
