New items you’ve purchased at the grocery store

I love the OG Babybel as a snack — ideally with a sizable radish to take alternating bites — so I had to grab these at Sam’s today. I don’t think I’ve tried any of the varieties in this selection.


I always get the red ones. Not because of the cheese, but because I like the red wrapper.

Do you… keep the wrappers for an art project? I know my cat likes playing with them, but he doesn’t care much about their color :smile:

The red wrapper ones have cheese that tastes better than the yellow wrapper or blue wrapper cheese. Red is the right choice.

Haven’t tried one on the cats. My cats seem to like those plastic rings that come on bottles of milk. I will report back as soon as I can get to the grocery and get some Baby Bels . Had my (postponed) first cataract surgery this am. Cats joined me in a lengthy post-surgical nap. Will Uber back and forth tomorrow for check-up, because neither of the nappers drive. Don’t know when I’ll be able to drive. … or see. Awaiting the Great Unveiling. I didn’t get a patch you could see through, and was admonished not to remove it. First order of business will be Baby Bels! For science!


Happily there’s a dark green one that is vegan cheese. Theyre pretty good ao I keep them in the fridge when aj find them.


You will be astonished by what you can see ( my mother was horrified at the dust in her house after hers!)

Hope you heal as well and with as good results as I did.

I did love the twilight nap when I got home. One of the best naps ever!


Gute Besserung!

I tried the fig and balsamic Boursin,

and I don’t like it. I like the original, the basil chive , the shallot chive, the cracked black pepper, the chili pepper, and the cranberry varieties. This is the only Boursin I don’t like.

I like the cracked pepper and shallot chive Boursins better than the herb and garlic original Boursin.

I haven’t seen caramelized onion or rosemary & black garlic Boursin in Canada yet.

On the topic of colas, taking place over on WFD, I have enjoyed the Mole Cola, from Italy, that is sold at Eataly in Toronto. I get the Mole Cola in the glass bottle.

LOVE the cracked black pepper and the original Boursin (although I now buy Presidenté garlic & herb cheese - better price and amount). But when I read “fig and balsamic Boursin” my brain said “NOPE” before I even read that you didn’t like it.


“Try it, you’ll like it” was engrained into me when I was a kid, so I try a lot of things. I’m a sucker for trying new flavours and limited time offers.:rofl:

We were required to at least try something if offered at the dinner table as well.

Liver and lima beans didn’t make the cut for me. :rofl:


I always picked out the Lima beans out of the California frozen mix.

I also could not tolerate liver as a kid. There was a fancy omelette place in the Bay Area in the mud 70s, which had a Popeye’s omelette as a special, featuring liver and spinach. My mom gave me a bite. My jaw dropped, and the liver fell right out of my mouth onto the plate. :rofl:

I don’t mind liver in pâté now. I like liverwurst, and Sarge’s Deli’s chopped liver (but not the chopped liver I’ve tried in Toronto, that went into the trash), and some applications of foie gras, but I’m not a fan of liver on its own.


Liver is a lifelong nope! With me. The smell alone nauseates me. And I wouldn’t eat my car’s oil filter, either. And so it goes …


Yesterday I found these, $6.99 for the prepackaged set of four.
A fungus pasta this weekend.


King oysters? They are half the price at your local Asian grocer, I bet. Love 'em!

Unfortunately our Asian grocer doesn’t have fresh produce.

These patties are so good I made a separate thread for them :slight_smile:

Hoping to try the other blends available to me here in the boonz, namely The Katana Blend (American wagyu), The Prime, The Signature Blend (including the climate-friendly version, WTM :thinking:, and The Butcher’s Blend.

So far we’ve only tried the Butcher’s Blend, which had a nice beefy flavor and good texture.

Could you just see dipping your tzatziki triscuits into chocolate chipotle hummus? Now you can’t? You have actual taste and judgement?
