How Peanuts Can Go Wrong With Salted Caramel

review of Planters Salted Caramel Peanuts
We love salted caramel on all our desserts and we are huge fans of Planters roasted peanuts.  So we were so excited when Planters launched the new Salted Caramel Peanuts.  After chewing on a few of these peanuts, our first reaction was to want to spit them out.  We couldn't believe how salted caramel didn't pair well with roasted peanuts.  How could that be???  We always drizzle caramel sauce and sprinkle peanuts on our vanilla ice-cream.  We were totally shocked by how weird the Planters  Salted Caramel Peanuts tasted.  A further look at the container helped us realize why.  It was the "artificial flavor" that ruined our beloved Planters peanuts.  We don't understand why anyone will bother to add artificial flavor to something good.  Just when  did  anything "artificial" ever taste any good?   This is a really disappointing product and we couldn't stand the artificial caramel flavor to take a second mouthful, we just tossed the whole container into the trash.

Fluffy French Toasts - Classic Burger Cafe

Written by: Jane Ong

fluffy French Toasts

Sometimes I wake up craving for French Toasts in the morning.  But whenever I didn't feel like going into the kitchen to make French Toasts,  I went to get them at the usual diner I frequent. I like the big thick fluffy French Toasts there and I think it's a good deal for under $5.00.  I of course have had French Toasts that tasted similarly delicious at much prettier restaurants, but they were expensive.

Every afternoon between 2:00pm to 3:00pm, this little dinner is jam packed with students from the nearby schools.   Its low price menu and its generous portion are the reasons.  I haven't tried any other items on the menu other than French Toasts, which are pretty good and actually better than the ones at several of the restaurants that I love.
