found via [tumblr.com profile] gothiccharmschool adagio tea sells loose-leaf teas & tea paraphernalia. they have all kinds; black, decaf, green, etc. & even fandom blends! (it's better to search for the one you're interested in, than to look through their list) there could be more than one for what you're interested in. for example; there are a couple for daniel jackson of SG-1, so read the flavor description to see if it's something you might like. they sell sample tins that make about 5 cups (except for some which are 10 or the ice tea, which is 6 pouches that make 40oz), so you can try it before committing to a larger amount.

they even tell you at what temperature & how long to steep the teas for.

make sure you read the whole page for the tea you're interested in, as some are higher in caffeine than others.

as part of our on-going quest to try oreos & oreo-like cookies by brother & i got the simply made chocolate sandwich cookies from keebler. well, they were not the best.

first of all, they barely had any filling. second; there wasn't very much chocolate taste to the cookies. the wal-mart & target brand ones were better. in our opinion.

oreo has brownie batter & cinnamon roll ones now. tempting, but doubtful we will get them.

despise our bad-luck with oreo cookies, we (brother & i) decided to try the s'mores oreos. to quote my brother: "they're not horrible."

first off: the cookies taste kind of like gram crackers. just enough that you'd probably know that's what they're going for if you didn't know that's what they're supposed to be.
second: the chocolate & marshmallow never really worked well together. you'd either taste one or the other, rarely both.
the only good thing is that the cookies seemed less prone to breaking than the last time we had regular (actually double stuffed) oreos.

verdict; while "not horrible" not really great & i wouldn't get them again.

had stuff from there the other day & they had some new stuff.

croissant donut--nothing special. if it's anything like the "cronut" that was wildly popular last year (or when ever it was) i don't get the appeal.
cheesecake square dounuts--i had the oreo & my brother had the raspberry. pretty good, better that the above.
we had some of the usual things too: french cruller, apple spice, butternut & vanilla kream.
someday well try their bagels, muffins and/or croissants.

in other news: my brother & i have seemed to have developed colds. with sore throats, runny noses & sneezing. bleh!

last year my brother & i tried stuff from gopicnic that makes little boxed lunch things some of which are gluten-free, vegan & kosher. well now they have breakfast and since target had a couple on sale, we decided to try them.

the two we had where creamy vegetable spread & multigrain crackers and chocolate almond butter & croissant. the vegetable spread was ok, not that overwhelming " vegetable" flavor that you get with some dips, but the crackers weren't all that great.
in the second one the croissant was kind of dry, but tasted ok. the chocolate almond butter wan't anything special (and the pile of it looks....unfortunate in the picture on the box. as does any chocolate-like substance in a pile.) and was in a rectangle-like pouch, which made it hard to squeeze out on the croissant. it should've been a longer tube with a tear-away corner so it would've been easier to squeeze out. the apricot flexible fruit strip that came with it was probably the best thing out of both boxes. IMHO.

in my previous entry i complained about coke putting names on their 20oz bottles as part of their share a coke thing. but today i was secretly amused to find one labeled "daniel." which of course i bought, because i wouldn't mind sharing a coke (among other things) with daniel jackson.

....but i'm going to anyway.

coca-cola has this thing where they want you to share a coke with some one. to that end they have it on their 20oz bottles something like "share a coke with ____" & they fill in the blaink with thing like "friend" or "somebody" but they also have names. call me weird if you want (& you probably will) but i don't want someone else's name on my soft drink. i don't mind the generic terms that they have, but the specific names kind of bug me. IMHO, nothing like that should have a name on it unless it's a cup, key-chain or christmas ornament.

burger king has a good croissant one & you can pick between sausage, bacon or ham.

2. A sandwich cookie is typically made with two thin cookies with some kind of sweet, creamy filling. What’s the best variation on this theme you have tried, or what variation would you like to try?
oreo used to be good, but not any more. (see this entry for further details) the target & wal-mart brands aren't too bad.

we (dad, brother & i) went to a local dairy queen yesterday & they have this new thing for dispensing coke products: the coke-a-tron 5000 coca-cola freestyle. it dispenses 100+ kinds of soda-pop. my brother & i first heard about it in some sort of bloomberg TV thing on netflix streaming. at that time, they were trying it out in a few places. it transmits data back to to coke headquarters on what kind of drinks are popular. someone from the company said that with over 100 things to chose from, coke classic is the most popular. so, my brother took the opportunity to try a bunch of stuff. (because how often to you find fanta grape at a restaurant anyway?) the drops in his cup looked like confetti. i tried vanilla root beer, not great.

today my brother & i decided to try some gelato from breyers the vanilla caramel & the raspberry cheesecake in particular. they're good, nice & creamy. but at nearly $5.00 for about 30 ounces, it's not something worth getting often. IMHO.
i hear that talenti brand gelato is supposed to be really good, may have to give that a try sometime. we had the salted caramel things on a stick that are dipped in dark chocolate, but the dark chocolate kind of blocks the gelato & i can't stand dark chocolate anyway.

on friday we went to panera bread for a loaf of bread to make sandwiches & were temped my the various baked goods. so we decided that after were were done with our shopping for the day, we'd get some stuff. we eventually decided to get four things & divide each one among both of us: a cheese pastry (not too bad), a double fudge brownie (very dry. my brother wondered if it would've been better if we had it earlier instead of saving it until after dinner), a strawberry rhubarb mini cake (a lot of brown sugar crumbles on top & not much stuff in it. which is probably good, i suspect that i wouldn't like rhubarb) & a white chocolate raspberry mini cake (very moist & flavorful. the best out of the four)
panera bread is good (usually) but expensive. it's a little over $2.00 for a chocolate cupcake! which was smaller than their carrot cupcake (i guess carrots are cheaper than chocolate) the one good thing they have going on is that you can add most any of their cookies/pastries to a meal for 99 cents.
