Heath Klondike Bar - Ad

Heath Klondike Bar

Looks: The bar on the box appears to be taller than the real bar. Other than that (and the fact that I couldn’t bite into it without cracking all of the surrounding chocolate), it is accurately advertised. 4 out of 5

Taste: Very good – I enjoyed this bar much more than a regular Klondike bar, and the only difference is the Heath bits in the chocolate shell. The ice cream is creamy, the chocolate shell isn’t too thick, and the toffee breaks up the monotony of the chocolate/ice cream combo (if you could call such a partnership monotonous). The only beef I have with this bar is that I think it’s about 30% too big – when I get two-thirds of the way through, I feel like I should be done, but there’s still four or five more bites to go. 4 out of 5

Wendy's Jr Frosty - Inside

Looks: Have you ever wanted to feel like a giant but didn’t want to undergo painful leg-lengthening surgery? Just pick up a Jr. Frosty from Wendy’s! This thing is seriously small: about 3 inches from top top bottom – that’s half the length of a dollar bill.

I suppose it should be small, since it’s “Junior,” but just holding it in my hand made me feel enormous. (As for the actual food contents, it’s pretty close to advertised, albeit a little more melted, but it had undergone a 10-minute car ride before I could take pictures of it.) 4.5 out of 5

Taste: It was pretty close to the “shakes” I used to make as a kid: fill a cup with vanilla ice cream, add an unseemly amount of chocolate syrup, and then stir until it’s mixed and the ice cream has melted enough to be shake-consistency. (This is not a bad comparison; I loved those shakes.) There’s not much else to say, except that I ate it so fast I got brain-freeze. So, don’t do that. 4 out of 5
