Like a sir; I attended a wine tasting.

Okay, so last week I went to a fancy wine tasting, sipping on $80 bottles of the most disgusting grape flavored vinegar ever. Note; I don't like wine. Never have. Never will.

With that being said; I forced down 6 glasses of the stuff. I had to score it. Well; my scores were damned accurate compared to a professional wine tasters scored of the same wines.

And then it dawned on me... why can't I do this with Soda? Soda is a fast food in a sense. It's prebottled, carbonated at the factory and it comes in a variety of flavors.

My exquisite palate should be able to differentiate between a good Soda and a bad one. My favorite: Dr. Pepper and it's ghetto incarnations are easily distinguished between each other. I bet side-by-side I could pick out which one was the real Dr. Pepper and which one wasn't.

So; lets see if I'm able!

That will one of my upcoming challenges. Buy all the knockoffs of Dr. Pepper, Dr. Pepper itself, Diet Dr. Pepper and lets see if I can taste the difference between them.

See you next Friday when I indulge in the tastes of the Dr. Knockoffs.

Not So Fast Food: Little Caesar's Hot'n'Ready

Attention Small Julius; every time I seem to go in for your Hot'n'Ready pizzas, I wait in excess of 10-15 minutes. This isn't just an event at one location... not even a in the same city or state.

So here we go; I'm hungry. You claim to have Hot'n'Ready Pepperoni, Cheese and Crazy Bread. So I could just walk in and order, get my food and bounce. Seems easy enough.

Nope. Hasn't happened once. In several locations between the Seattle Metro area and Reno I might add. Now; I don't ever really go when I'd expect you to be busy like on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday... or April 20th for the Munchied out stoners. So; while I temporarily revoke your Fast Food status, I will hold out hopes that you can have these prefab pizzas next time I wish to indulge in quick, greasy, filling pies.

Sincerely yours,
-Joe the Impatient Foodie

Jack in the Box Snafu (Part 3)

In conclusion, I did receive a letter from corporate. It took a long while but I finally got it.

Well, there weren't as many free food items as I had hoped. Only two Value Meals.

Ordered a couple of the same combo. They were significantly better the first time around. No bones at least. A little gristle in the second burger but it was still good.

Stay tuned while I gather some more interesting articles. I think it's time for a spicy-chicken challenge from the major chains.

Dave's Back from the Dead!

Okay, Wendy's is getting pretty freaking good. Not only do they have a hot redheaded babe in their commercials now; they are totally getting it right when it comes to burgers.

No more thin pieces of grease meat now.

Check this sucker out:

That right there is Dave's 3/4lb Triple burger. And OH. MY. GOD! It's so amazing it rivals Five Guys, In-n-Out and sit-down gourmet burger places like TGIF, BJ's, Red Robin, etc...

Once again; no freaking tomato on this puppy (It comes with tomato). It didn't need the extra slop. This burger was juicy and drippy enough on it's own.

The burger doesn't look delicious to your standard consumerist from the image I took. But let me say this; any genuine foodie would look at this burger and salivate. Amazing.

Catch ya next time!

Jack in the Box Snafu (Part 2)

Part 2 of the the Snafu at Jack.

So a couple days later I miss a phone call from an 855 number. I thought it was a telemarketer so I didn't answer. Turned out to be Jack in the Box Corporate Customer Relations.

Oh snap son! Corporate peeps callin' lil ol Foodie Blogger Joe?

This wouldn't be the first time; I can eerily get under their skin when I'm displeased with my food.

So; they left me a very careful voice mail wanting to urgently speak to me. They didn't leave specifics just in case I gave them bad info.

Well, I got busy that day and didn't call them back. Fortunately, they called me back a day later. I answered when I immediately recognized the number. Boop. Some very apologetic gentleman named (Alex I think he said) went over some things with me. I explained the situation and my order as well as what I found.

He was surprised to hear that I kept that bone fragment (I didn't get a picture of it like a dummy) and requested that I send it off to their labs for testing. I told him it could've been plastic just to set him on edge; but I knew it was bone.

"Well sir, we are going to send you a fedex overnighted package with a seal-able bag and return label so that you can send us the package. We are also going to send you a Corporate Apology letter as well as several free food vouchers for our value menu items. Is that acceptable?"

No, I wanted one million dollars. But I caved. "Yeah! Sounds great!"


The next day (yesterday) I ended up getting the package. Inside was a letter and a "seal-able" plastic baggie. I sealed away the bone fragment in a ziplog as I didn't trust the bag they sent me to keep the 2mm bone fragment from escaping, and then I securely put that baggie in the provided one.

Sealed it up and put the return label on. Fed ex picked the package up today.

So, here are the contents of the letter to show that this is legit and some fabricated thing: 

The Writing at the bottom is in fact just my Fed Ex Pick-up ticket number and pick-up time. This also has my return label receipt that I kept.

I brightened this in photoshop so you could read it better. I also blurred out my address because of creepy stalkers. While I trust anonymous to leave little ol' me alone; I love you guys and respect you guys enough that I know better. I may set up a P.O. Box soon so you can send me all the dirty pictures and threats of bodily harm at that time.

With that being said; I sent it off and am now awaiting the second part of the delivery promise, which would be that corporate apology letter and free food vouchers. Once I get those, I'll start on Jack in the Box Snafu (Part 3) at that time.

Let me know what you think of this experience so far in the comments! If I get more than 3 vouchers, I'll give one lucky US Viewer one of them. Thanks!
