Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap

A few weeks back we commented that there were whole new flavors of Peeps that we had not seen yet. And frankly, you all delivered, in quantity. So this week, we will try ALL THE PEEPS. Chocolate, Party Cake, Sour Watermellon, and more. Not only that, but frozen hush puppies, heat-stabilized lentils, and a lot more. 

Also, Kevin can drink again, so there is a celebratory beer to go with them.

Once more, putting our pancreases on the line, because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

You can tell, based on some of the choices this week, that we have been housebound due to winter weather here on the east coast. Seriously, why else would we eat this stuff?

Oh, right. Because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Friends, listeners, countrypersons, lend me your ears. Nabisco has produced Red Velvet Oreo Cookies. I kid you not. And we ate them, and they are...

Week two of no drinks for Kevin continues, so Ursula takes the burden upon herself with a bottle of ginger beer. OK, not just ginger beer, but ginger beer with vodka! She's making Moscow Mules, and the results are what one would expect.

There is also a duplicate food in the photo, so we replaced it with something else. What could lat be? Listen and find out when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

We're back from Foolscap, MAGFest, and our other travel and ailments, and once more we have a load of new foods to try. Not all is joy, though, since Kevin can't drink for the next 5-6 weeks. No Beer! No Scotch! Just water.

And yet the show must go on. So armed with a 9.5% ABV cider for Ursula and a bottle of flavored water Kevin, we dive into first of the gifts given to us in our travels.

We shall percervere, because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Ursula has been playing a japanese Dating Simulation Game, but with a twist - all the potential beaus are pigeons. Yes, you heard right, pigeons. And she will tell you all about it in case you missed the live tweeting of the game.

We also encounter not one, not two, but THREE kinds of nacho flavors this episode, multiple kinds of chocolate, and a noodle bowl of some sort. All this, and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.

What's this? Two varieties of frozen waffle? Well then, we must eat them both! And is that a variation on peppermint bark? Yes! We should have that over an hour after the waffles! Whatever shall we have in between...

We also have a three pepper cider, frozen pizza, and tropical fruit hard candy with an interesting label. All that and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!
