I’m starting to think Kraft, particularly with it’s Oreo cookies, are leading the pack in the “Let’s Make a New Horrific Twist On An Old Junk Food Favorite” game. I guess they didn’t want to be outdone by KFC’s Double Down or Burger King’s burger/pizza baby so they’ve introduced the Triple Double Oreo, which has Continue reading
If you follow Cookie Monster’s 40 year career, and I do, you know he’s got some tricks up his sleeve and he knows how to switch up his steez. This master of reinvention was smart enough to embrace rap in its earlier days and ride the health craze wave by throwing veggies in the mix not too long ago. Yes, it’s true, he’s not all about cookies anymore. Continue reading

The battle of the acronyms is on, this time it’s KFC vs. PETA. Kentucky Fried Chicken has recently released a new atomic chicken sandwich. This one may be more deadly than the ones dripping in melted parm at your local bodega or pizza joint. This KFC sandwich is called the Double Down and it consists of two fried chicken fillets with a filling of two slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese, two slices of bacon, and sauce, with no bun.
I’ve never heard anyone say anything good about this sandwich since its debut on April 12th and adding to the bad response is PETA. In this case PETA does not stand for People Eating Tasty Animals because they are catching fits over this sandwich. Continue reading
There’s this young woman that lives in my neighborhood. At one time she and I had some mutual friends but I never really knew her. What I do know is that occasionally I run into her and she’s greener than me.
It’s always at some off peak shopping hour when few shoppers are around. She’s always modestly dressed, with dark, unprocessed, natural African American hair. Her complexion is clear like she never had a pimple, a scar or a cut in her life. Continue reading

Here in New York City there’s a war going on outside no man is safe from. No not that war or those wars, The Soda Tax Wars.
Our mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is calling for a penny-per-ounce tax on soda to deal with budget cuts for health care and education.
Of course this is all under the guise of this new measure being for your own good, after all you and your kids are fat remember? Who can forget this charming anti soda ad?
The fact is the city is looking for money and health issues are a smokescreen for that. I’ve seen ads on TV with a Latino store owner talking about how this tax will hurt his Black, Latino and lower income customers in the Bronx. Check it out below. Continue reading
