Review: Arby’s Roast Beef and Turkey Gyro (Limited Time Only)

Arby’s introduced its version of gyros about a year ago.  It is now back in some locations as a temporary item. A little history on the gyro…although there is some debate, it is widely accepted that gyros sandwiches are Greek in origin.  They are popular in the U.S., especially in cities with a large Greek population.  For example, gyros can be had in almost every local hot dog place in the Chicagoland area. For those of you that are not familiar, the sandwich typically consists of a lamb and beef mix of meat that is cooked on a rotating spit. …

Fewd Fight! Sriracha

In case you haven’t read the ‘About Us’ page yet, Fewd Fight! is a feature where the Fewd Snobs completely disagree on something. For our first Fewd Fight!, we have chosen the trendy sauce, Sriracha.  We are talking about the Huy Fong Foods version, which is the most popular. We COMPLETELY disagree on this one… Herman’s Thoughts:  I LOVE Sriracha!  I have been on a binge lately with the stuff (two huge bottles in about 3 months).  I have been putting it on everything.  I also find that it is an awesome ingredient to cook with or just add to…

Review: Subway Gouda Club (Limited Time Only)

Subway has a couple of new sandwiches, although they appear to be in the testing phase.  The sign in our store calls it the “Smoked Gouda Collection.”  Both sandwiches are made with a Gouda spread.  One is a Gouda Roast Beef and the other is a Gouda Club. These sandwiches are not shown on the Subway website.  We asked the “sandwich artist” that made our fewd if Wichita is a test market for the sandwiches.  She was not aware that these were not on the website.  At the time of this writing, we have an email out to Subway to…

Fewd Bite: Hiland Sour Cream Chive Dip

Hiland is a dairy company that is based in our hometown of Wichita, KS.  Hiland’s products are available all across the midwest, so you readers on the coasts may leave now (just kidding, stick around anyway!).  While once being known as a milk and dairy products company, Hiland has expanded to more varied products.  Dips are a Fewd Snob favorite, and a perfect Fewd Bite… Denny’s Thoughts:  Herman introduced me to Hiland Sour Cream Chive Dip.  The interesting thing is, I have a love/hate relationship with sour cream.  Sometimes I like it, and sometimes I don’t.  I certainly wouldn’t have…

Fewd Fight! Fireball Cinnamon Whisky

Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey has become very popular lately in the United States, as well as many other countries.  According to Fireball’s website, it originated in Canada.  You will notice that the word ‘whiskey’ is spelled without the ‘e,’ which is the proper spelling in Canada.  The whisky itself is Canadian, and it is aged in used American bourbon barrels.  The whisky is flavored using real Cinnamon. It seems like every time we’re in a bar, we see people ordering tons of Fireball shots.  The popularity has shot through the bar roof. And in good Food Fight fashion, we completely disagree……

Review: Coors Light Citrus Radler (New)

For our first Booze review, we are testing the new Coors Light Citrus Radler. Although the Fewd Snobs typically don’t review fruity beers, we couldn’t pass up a chance to drink in the middle of the afternoon.  And after all, it’s still Coors Light.  We saw it in the store, and had to try it out. Evidently, Coors wants to get into the seasonal brew market.  This is unusual for MillerCoors.  Budweiser has been doing their varieties for a while (Bud Light Lime, Bud Light Ritas).  This is one of the first attempts to compete by MillerCoors. We grabbed a…

Review: Tombstone Original Supreme Pizza

Yes, you read right.  We are reviewing a frozen pizza.  Not only is it a frozen pizza, but it’s a $3 frozen pizza.  And it is petty damn good. Nobody expects pizzeria quality pizza when cooking a frozen pizza.  And yet, for something you can stick in the oven and have ready in about 20 minutes as opposed to calling for delivery, waiting for it while taking a nap, and then it’s cold when it arrives, frozen pizza is sometimes an essential.  Plus, a delivery pizza is gonna cost about five times as much.  And it also is pretty good…
