The Snack Report: Russell Stover Key Lime Whip Egg

There’s a bit of a tradition here at Poor Couple’s Food Guide where, the week after Easter we go to the local drug store and buy a massive amount of the Russell Stover eggs for super cheap on clearance.  We usually eat about 4 and then have the rest in a bag for most of the year.  You’d think we’d have learned our lesson by now, but it hasn’t happened yet.  This year however, a flavor jumped out at me and I couldn’t wait until after Easter to try it – key lime.  The package caught my attention because I am a large fan of lime flavored things.  I’ve lamented before the fact that green apple has been taking over lime as the go-to green flavor, so anytime I see something that’s still lime, I’m game.

Smoothie Sunday: Kiwi Lime Smoothie

Lime is probably one of my favorite citrus flavors. It’s so refreshing and also smells wonderful. I’m very upset that green apple has become the go-to flavor for green candies and the like, pushing lime out of the way. I also enjoy lime in smoothies. They definitely need to be combined with another fruit though, because otherwise you’ll just end up with a limeade drink. This time I decided to try mixing lime with another green fruit – kiwi. While a good start, I will definitely be experimenting with other lime smoothies in the future as well.

What you'll need.  Also, look who got a new blender!

The Snack Report: Limeade Oreos

Continuing with this week’s theme of Oreo reviews (and our never ending quest to get free cookies sent to us) I am here to review another limited edition Oreo flavor out now: Limeade.  I was instantly intrigued when I saw these cookies in the grocery store last week, mostly because of the bright green filling.  Luckily they happened to be on sale, so they quickly made their way into my shopping cart.  However I became a bit wary after running into the Oreo rep lady, who happened to be there refilling the shelves.  Her opinion of them was, “They’re not terrible.”  While that’s certainly a good sign, it’s also not the highest praise either.  So…how did I find them to be?
