A Left Twix versus Right Twix taste test comparison - We decide for ourselves which is truly best!

Everyone knows that there's two different Twix bars and one is completely superior to the other. Every time I eat a Twix, it has to be a Left Twix. The Right Twix is obviously inferior. 

Well after hearing me tout that again and again, the kids were ready to make me prove it. It's time for the Left Twix versus Right Twix blind taste test. 

Which one will win? Left Twix, like I suspect, or Right Twix. Let's find out.

Pizza at Home - Nevada - Las Vegas Buffet inspired Pizza

Starburst Duos Gelatin Taste Test Comparison

Today we get to try a new Starburst experience! Not just one flavor of Starburst gelatin but two in one! It's Starburst Duos! 

We last got a look at Starburst Duos chewy candies when Starburst made gelatin back in 2020. Starburst made 4 fruit flavors, Strawberry, Lemon, and Cherry, but instead of making their classic Orange, they opted for Blue Raspberry! The only Blue Raspberry Starburst I could find was part of their new Starburst Duos!

Windy's Ranch and Rescue - Pig Sanctuary - Nevada - 2023/09/12

It's been a long summer, traveling all up and down the West side of the United States. Today we're going to a place that's really fun! It's Windy's Ranch and Rescue!

Look at that map of all the different places we've spent the night in the RV. It's filling up, but there's a hole right in the middle. We'd best take care of that one now while we're over here. 
Theresa found a Harvest Host site in Nevada and we were excited to book it! It's a Pig Sanctuary! Alli adores pigs. They are one of her favorite animals. She's going to love this. 
Ooh, but there's a problem. There's an iron gate across the front that's got a maximum height of 12 feet. That's unfortunate because we're 12' 9" or so. But, the website also said later in the summer the gate would be raised. Theresa was in contact with the owner and sure enough, a few weeks before we arrived, the gate was raised! 
Let's go!

ICEE Sandwich Cookie taste test comparison, Cherry and Blue Raspberry

While Theresa was out grocery shopping at Fry's (a Kroger company), she saw these ICEE cookies. She didn't even text me to ask. She just bought them. She knows. (This was over the summer of 2022 in Palm Springs)

J&J Snack Foods, the parent company of ICEE, has decided to bring us their frozen ICEE drinks in cookie form! And it's in both of their two classic flavors. Both Cherry and Blue Raspberry are go-to classics!

Oreo Cakesters Taste Test Comparison

A new Oreo! And not just a new flavor like we usually get. This is a whole new concept of Oreo. It's called an Oreo Cakester!

These Oreo Cakesters are soft chocolatey sandwich cakes filled with creme. They are a lot bigger than the typical Oreo Sandwich cookies, and the texture is definitely going to be different. Let's try them!

My brother found this first while he was out and about. He grabbed a package for us to all try out together. Let's go!

And like we always do, we'll be trying these Eggo Pop Tarts alongside their namesake, the frozen Eggo Waffle! I can't remember the last time I had an Eggo waffle. It might have been back in 2020 when we tried the Eggo Waffle breakfast cereal

Alli loses her 6th tooth! 2023-02-01

This one has been loose for a little while and finally it's time to come out! Normally I'd record the event, but when I woke up one morning, Alli was in the living room waiting for me with a big smile on her face. 

Alli, did you lose a tooth?
