Campbell's Chunky Hearty Cheeseburger Soup

Less than a month ago, around the time just before the Super Bowl I noticed this Campbell's ad on YouTube, and this flavor was mentioned there, so I wrote it down on the Post-It note [just to seal-in the fact that the cheeseburger soup actually exist and that I have not made it up] and then couple of days went to local supermarkets to check if they have it up on the shelves up for purchase. None of the 4 supermarkets in my area had it since they carry just the baseline flavors, and one of the supermarket employees could not believe me that there is actually a cheeseburger flavor and thought that I was just messing with her. Then I figured that I should just go and check out if they have this soup flavor over at Target, since they have expanded assortment there. It took me a while to find it [since it was on one of the lower shelves] and the price was right: $1.44 per can. The soup tastes creamy and a bit sauce, which I think is just right. There are also potato pieces and flake-sized unidentified pieces of vegetables. Despite my hate for bfor boiled potato pieces in the soups, I actually ate these without disgust since the cheesy soup was so good that it masked-out the potatoes. But the best part was the micro-sized burger bites that were just awesome while coated in the cheesy soup. I love this soup! But I can definitely see that it may not be everyone's "cup of tea". I will buy more cans of it next time when I will be over at Target.

Aldi's Mama Cozzi's Thin Crust Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Decent pizza from Aldi's. Cheese, sauce and chicken pieces were good, but the crust needs improvements to flavor: it tasted bland.

Aldi's Fit and Active Philly Cheese Steak Lean Stuffed Sandwich

It tasted pretty okay for a budget Hot/Lean Pocket. The crust was slightly of lesser quality/taste than the Lean Pockets, but the filling was pretty much the same. Price was $1.89 for 2x sandwiches.

Stars and Stripes Cola

I got this 3L bottle of cola at Deals store for $1.00 [plus bottle deposit and tax] and the cola flavor tastes pretty decent for a budget/generic cola, but the sweeter is what makes this soda not so enjoyable; the sweetener taste thin and unwholesome like a diet soda, but the label says that the sweetener is HFCS. I experienced the same problem with the Stars and Stripes Root Beer and will not buy any more of this soda.

Custom Mashed Potatoes with Luncheon Meat

Made this mashed potatoes with luncheon meat couple of days ago. Luncheon meat was okay, other than being a bit salty on the outside, but otherwise it was fine and tender. Mashed potatoes came out okay, but I did not took into account the extra sauces and did not compensated with extra potato flakes, so it come out a  bit mushy, but 15 minutes after it simmered down, the potatoes were alright and I ate it all. Here is what I used for it:

Garlic Knots Sauce
Hot Sauce
BBQ Sauce
Pepper Powder
Cheese Powder
Basil Flakes
Potato Flakes

Another Neighbor's Borscht

Another neighbor gave me some of her borscht and this time it is better since it has beef pieces in it. I added my sour cream to it and ate it all.

3x Classic Crispy Chicken Sandwich from Burger King

For $3.00 [plus tax] I was able to assemble this 3x patty chicken sandwich at Burger King. It was pretty good, and the chicken was juicy but it could have used a bit more mayo that got left on the unused buns, which I brought back home and used to Russian sandwiches 3 days later.

Slice of Pizza from Pizza Daddy

The crust was below average and chewy, the sauce was average with a hint of sweetness and cheese was very chewy that I had to take it out from my mouth and bite the cheeseball in half. Price - $2.50. I don't recommend it.

Slice of Pizza from 99c Hot Pizza

The crust was kind of cottony, but the sauce was well-seasoned and the cheese was alright. For $1.00 it was pretty not bad.

Wendy's Spicy Chipotle Jr Cheeseburger

Its pretty good and not super hot that you need a beverage. I ate it without beverage and it was alright other than kind of not enough meat. Taking the crown off would have helped, but then I would've been wasting the precious sauce. $0.99 in Brooklyn and $1.09 in Manhattan [34th Street, between 7th and 8th Avenue].

Coca-Cola Vanilla

After original/classic Coca-Cola and Dr Pepper, Coca-Cola Vanilla is my 3rd favorite soda. Its very refreshing and enjoyable. Too bad they don't make it in 1.25L and 2L bottles.

Sour Apple Jolly Rancher Soda

Very good sour apple soda: like a liquid Jolly Rancher with the right amount of sourness and sweetness to it, plus strong carbonation that gives it a distinct kick.

Dr Pepper

Its my second favorite soda after Coca-Cola. It tastes great like a great soda should, and I never get tired drinking it.

Smart Sense Root Beer

Tastes above average but could use more carbonation.

Nathan's Chili Cheese Crunchy Crinkle Fries

They were okay, kinda good, but nothing special. I get this bag for $0.50 at the Russian store.
