From what feels like a relic of a bygone era of junk food Sunkist has unveiled unquestionably the first pink lemonade soda! Brian is joined by Eddie as they tackle this vibrant brew in a snowcapped alleyway opining on its taste, scent, and color, as well as the larger concept of pink lemonade itself! Join us for a bubbly brouhaha as mix together strawberries, lemons, and effervescent oratory!
*NOTE – We’re aware the last 30 seconds accidentally got cut off. We had a technical error that prevented us from using the first take and then the 2nd one got prematurely cut off. Eddie compared the scent to lip balm, said the flavor was “indescribable and very good”, and said he’d pick another bottle up on the way home if he could find one!

For the first-time ever Brian is joined by his very own Rugrats to review! The kids and Brian are tackling Sour Patch Kids cereal! That’s no typo. The popular sour gummy candies usually seen in movie theater lobbies and being traded on school bleachers are now part of a wholesome breakfast! Can candy crossover like Allen Iverson into the world of whole grain cereals, crunchy bacon, and syrupy pancakes? And can sour cereal actually work? Find out!

Brian and pal Eddie review a summer staple, county fair favorite, funnel cake-inspired snack in the snowy streets. Can these snack balls replicate the powdery sugar-coated carnival bliss of a real funnel cake? This review ain’t no parlor trick but it’s as exhilarating as a rickety roller coaster ride! Enjoy!

In an inspired choice Will nabbed us a few pizza pies from a food truck and after only driving a couple minutes he pulled a Dominic Toretto and whipped the car Tokyo Drift-ing our asses into the lot of place called Asia Grocery Store.
As seen above my girlfriend Tiffany and I were taking in the sights as if we were analyzing artwork in the French Revolution wing of the Louvre. There were so many brightly colored bags of prawn-flavored snacks and sodium-rich noodles that I almost asked if they were hiring just so I could have an excuse to spend 8 hours a day there.
Of all the snacks in that tiny grocery these were the ones that literally jumped off the shelves and into my clutches. Any nostalgia nerd worth his salt that grew up in the '90's would be lying if they said they're not constantly on the lookout for a replacement for Keebler's Pizzarias a cheese pizza-flavored chip that tasted like Pasqually E. Pieplate looks. Then there's the double-shot of awesomeness that is an Italian-inspired snack made in Thailand and sold out of an Asian grocer right outside Appalachia coupled with miniaturized versions of anything being totally adorable so tiny pieces of toast had my heart swelling.
Overall Grade: A+

For much of 2018 I was under the impression I wouldn’t be compiling a list. Personally, it was a year of much change, ups and downs, days passing like ripples in a lake as the pages of the calendar flipped with no signs of slowing. But over the last couple months I crammed as many blindspots in as I could, racing across town to screenings, streaming from sofas, and spending so much time at the library I believe they genuinely worried about me. The end result is a beautiful collage of cinema from chainsaw-wielding psychopaths to mournful meditations, racial identity and politics to love and loss, cults, cam girls, and a triple serving of skateboarding.
