Food.Fun.Stuff: Two New

[ 0 ] January 19, 2010 |

Two newbies:

In the past few weeks, we have had the pleasure of trying out a couple new treats to the foodie market. First, there were the Ritz Cinnamon Brown Sugar crackers and now the California Tortilla Screamin Burrito. The Ritz Cinnamon Brown Sugar crackers take us down memory lane reminding us of the original graham cracker cookies that were so tasty to snack on back in the day. These Brown Sugar crackers are the jazzed up version of graham crackers coated lightly with sugar. We suggest trying these when you want to make some quick appetizers for a last minute gathering, think cream cheese or small sliced strawberries as a topping.

The Screamin’ Burrito had some good points…and some not so good points. We admit it, Cal Tort is one of our guilty pleasures. Fast food that’s good. That’s probably why we came down so hard on the Screamin’ Burrito, we know Cal Tort can do better. The Screamin’ Burrito, however has some great points: the signature hot sauce adds the right bite and spicy, hot pepper flavor to complement the rest of the burrito toppings i.e. chicken, rice and beans. As a matter of fact, it was the hot sauce that was the star of the show for JKGF. Another plus is they don’t overload the burritos with the sauce but by the time you realize it is on the sandwich, you may have already formulated a negative opinion of the sandwich. We say try for the sauce, which is a great food buy (*We have a bottle to crack open for our fish and shrimp tacos…can’t wait!), but be warned the Sreamin’ Burrito is not Cal Tort at its best…
