The Poor Couple Has Big News!

It’s been a bit of a slow year here at PCFG, and a few of you may be wondering why our posts have tapered off in the past year or so. Well, to start off, we’d like to apologize to our fans who may be missing our more regular posting schedule. We swear we have a good excuse though!

Originally, we had moved into a new apartment together at the beginning of this year, and figured by Summertime we’d be back into the swing of posting things. Unfortunately that didn’t quite happen. After a handful of financial crises (including an emergency new car purchase), we were finally able to put the hectic past 7 months behind us. That brings us to our big news!

The Poor Couple got engaged!

So yes, in other words, the Poor Couple will now be even poorer! We joke of course, since this is a happy time, but as you can imagine, getting engaged this Summer was obviously a big distraction from posting as well. Fortunately, we’re starting to get back on our feet and back closer to a more regular posting schedule. If all goes well, we should be able to at least get a few posts up per month like we used to (though we can’t promise this, since as everyone knows, wedding planning is a lot of work)! That aside, we may even be able to write up a few articles on doing some wedding planning on the cheap!

Thanks again to all our persistent fans! We’ll make sure to keep you all in the loop with fun new recipes, Pizza Lab experiments, and cooking tips as we always have. Stay tuned!

The Snack Report: Breyer’s Ice Cream Cake Ice Cream

My name is Erik S. and I have a confession to make.

I don’t actually really like ice cream cake all that much.

There, I said it. I said it, I can’t take it back, and I regret nothing. But before the ice cream heavens rain fiery vengeance upon me, let me say in my defense that while I don’t dislike ice cream cake, I just vastly prefer regular-ass ice cream, and think the cake form is overrated.

Okay, still not good enough? Well luckily, I found some middle ground for everyone out there torn between ice cream and ice cream cake:

The Snack Report: Campbell’s Super Mario Chicken Noodle Soup

There’s something about specially-branded/shaped foods of your favorite characters that just makes life that much more bearable. Many of you probably grew up, knowing the whimsy of seeing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shaped mac ‘n’ cheese. And by whimsy, I mean “absolutely losing your shit”. Sure, these cherished foods aren’t always the healthiest option, but as a fun treat once in a while, nothing quite beats the feeling of putting your Batman into your mouth

Wait. That came out wrong. Or did it?

At any rate, I’d like to present the following for all our fellow Nintendo fans:

The Snack Report: Super Mario 3-Dees Gummies

Some fans of PCFG may be aware that both Meg and I are Nintendo fans. Maybe someday we’ll be famous enough that people streetpassing us on their Nintendo 3DS will be a big deal… Until then, we can only fantasize. Oh and also locate and eat the few Nintendo-themed snacks out there, we can find in the U.S.! Which brings me to today’s Snack Report: Super Mario gummies, made by Au’some. However, these aren’t just any old gummies… much like the Nintendo 64, these guys have made the jump into the third dimension.

The Cereal Report: Post Mini Cinnamon Churros

I dunno what it is about miniature versions of things that’s awesome. All the best novelties in life are just smaller versions of stuff. Pizza Bagels, Shetland Sheepdogs, the Game Boy Micro, we can’t get enough of them. I had heard years ago of a churro-themed cereal, but never had seen it in stores until I was recently tipped off to their being in stock at a local Path Mark. During a (failed) trip to buy video games, I decided to stop in and buy this cereal as a sort of consolation prize to my inner bawling child which was hysterical at the fact every store in the area was sold out of Luigi’s Mansion.
