Jif Chocolate Cheesecake Hazelnut Spread

In a moment of extraordinarily poor judgement, I purchased a jar of Jif Chocolate Cheesecake Flavored Hazelnut Spread.

Or perhaps it was curiosity. Nutella-like goodness swirled with cheesecake? Sign me up.

The cheesecake part is basically cream cheese flavored frosting from a can. Blasphemy.

It's basically sugar with a little flavoring sprinkled on top, but the sprinkling only happens every other Tuesday. The rest of the week, it is just sugary crack.

I can't review the hazelnut part because the taste of the cheesecake crack frosting is drowning out the hazelnut and chocolate flavors.

VERDICT: Crackety.

Gardein Fishless Filet

Another win for Gardein! Applause!

The batter is made of tapioca starch, resulting in a beer battered type texture--light and crispy. The filet itself meets my requirements--tasty, reminiscent of a comfort food, but doesn't taste too much like meat.

The Gardein website suggests fish tacos--I'm definitely going to try that.

Happy Meatless Monday!
