Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap
Episode 233 – Not as Good as the Ones that were Recalled

This week, we roll through a plethora of interesting odds and ends from the Mexican markets in Arizona. We also ask important questions like : what does a sweet and sour salted plum taste like? Is coconut candy any different in Mexico than it is here? Do we really need to eat Hot Liquid Candy?

We will answer these questions, while asking a whole lot more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 232 - El Diablo Tortilla

Oh glorious day, one of our lovely listeners unleashed an army of minions to find a Paqui Tortilla Carolina Reaper Madness Chip, single serve in a little red coffin box. There is also a selection of honey from around the world, more things Canadian, noodles, donut holes, and even pumpkin spice latte from the K-Cup machine.

But no one cares about that. The important question is : will this be the Carolina Reaper product that finally brings Kevin his doom? Find out this week, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 231 – 69 year old Lisa Simpson

As you can see from the photo this week, there is a ton of things for us to eat. Which is a good thing, as we have our friend Natalie visiting from Montreal, and we will need the extra foods. We also make a Finish infused liquor as part of the show,discuss the US election, and drink heavily.

Frankly, we are drinking heavily any time the subject of the US Election comes up, in the hopes that our livers are ready for Election night itself. And if the worst happens, well, at least we won't feel it.

Until then, though, We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Recovery Interlude 2 - October 2016

We're back (sort of) now that Kevin's mouth is healing from the second (of three, we hope) oral surgeries. While he can't eat most things, we can read your  letters, drink some beers, and try out some easy-to-chew things to tide you over until we get the "all clear" from his periodontist.

There is also discussion of a possible new hound, why we need another hound, and the patience of a one-eyed cat. All that, and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 230 - The Jerky & Whisky Show

We have a ton of jerky to review, so we figured we would combine it with the new whisky arrivals this week. For the record, these do not pair well together, so we have some other stuff too. But mostly it is jerky and whisky. Which isn't a bad thing for the most part.

There are also appearances by the beagle, the hound, the cats, and foods we regret eating when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 229 – Underwhelming Scorpions

After a trip to Minnesota, a book appearance, and some down time, we are once more putting things into our bodies that may be best left on store shelves. We have things from not one, but TWO different Canadians! We have at least one package with no English at all on it! And we have the usual mixture of sweets, savories, horrors, and alcohol to help us through the recording. 

All that, and even more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 228 - Canadian Box or Whoopass

On the Thursday before Ursula's departure for the Decatur Book Festival, we figured we should open open up this box we received from Canada. Inside there were things we had never seen before. Meat products with a logo that will garner protests. Instant foods that are the same as, but different from foods we get here in the US. And then there are the sweets...

Alongside, we talk about cults, massacres, and gets visits from the beagle and the hound, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

The Chip Interlude - August 2016

We are on our way to Ireland! And so, in order to avoid having what we are starting to call "KUEC stomach" on the airplane, we've got a short (for us) episode where we try four new potato chip flavors. And some alcohol to wash it down because...well, we're eating four new potato chip flavors. 

All that and more, When We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!
