Digestive Pepparkaka

Ho! Ho! Ho!
Christmas time is here again.
And why not start the season with something easy?
With a cracker you all know, Digestive.
Now with gingerbread flavouring.

These where released last year and I think it is a great idea.
Digestive crackers are nice by themselves.
But combining them with gingerbread, that just sounds awesome.
And just look at that packaging.
It is very Christmasy.
A nice red colour palette and lots of Christmas symbols.
From snowflakes, to candy canes to christmas trees.
Something about it just screams Christmas.

They smell great!
Like a kitchen filled with newly baked gingerbread.
And who does not like that?
But what about the taste?
Well, the taste was somewhat dissapointing.
They sure tastes like gingerbread, but not really enough.
Still, these really got my Christmas feeling going.
And i thought they where a great start to the season.

Pepsi Black Lemon

The holidays are rapidly approaching. Ho Ho Ho!
And to make room for all the nice Christmas food and candy I have decided to try something odd.
A Pepsi soda from Japan with less sugar?
Yes, you read that correctly. Not sugar free, just less sugar.

This Pepsi is marketed as a more adult soda.
Supposedly it has 50% less sugar than regular Pepsi.
And this sounds alright to me.
Regular sodas have lots and lots of sugar, which is not really that good.
I like the design of the bottle. It is very "adult".
The checkered background is nice and the black/white/yellow colour scheme is sweet.

It smells like regular Pepsi but with a hint of lemon, kind of like Pepsi Twist.
The taste is where things take a turn for the more weird.
It has a taste of cola, but more bitter.
You can really tell there is less sugar.
Maybe bitter is not the right word. It is bitter, but it is also sweet.
It is kind of like a dark sweet beer but more towards a soda.
Like I said, weird. I takes a lot getting used to.
After a while the lemon hits your mouth and it is even more bitter.
No sweet lemon here.
And you know what, in the end, I like it.
It is not something you are used to, but it is pretty good.

M&M Pumpkin Spice

I am so scared right now.
Everyone is howling and screaming.
Ghosts all around.
Even the TV is trying to eat me.
Thankfully I have some M&Ms to eat.
That sugar rush will take the scaryness away.

And what flavor you ask?
Of course it had to be semi-official flavor, Pumpkin Spice.
Starting with the packaging.
It is pretty awesome.
It has just enough autumy in it.
Orange and brown, check.
Pumpkins, check.
And the orange M&M looks like he stumbled into the wrong pumpkin patch.

The orange and the brown M&Ms are nice, but the green? To close to Christmas.
They do smell like pumpkin and that is all I have to say about that.
The taste. It was not what i expected.
The taste is very weird and bitter.
In other words, perfect for Halloween.

Lets round this of with... Ohh no... Now my girlfriend is possesed!
The power of christ compels you. The power of christ compel you.

Happy Halloween. *arwooo*
