Mexican Loco Moco from Verde Kaimuki

Yelped Verde Kaimuki

Had a trip to the Kaimuki area today and chose Verde Kaimuki for lunch. An excellent choice! Flavorful, fast service, and very affordable. Read my entire review on Yelp. Here’s my filling Mexican Loco Moco. The food was so satisfying that we ventured to the Humane Society and almost adopted a dog, Reebok. Say what?

Nike Zoom Wildhorse Reviewed

I submitted my mini review to Zappos for my recent purchase of the Nike Zoom Wildhorse, and it goes like this: Lightweight and great looking but very snug. After a few wears and runs, the shoe still feels tight. It’s okay for short runs, but I’m not sure if the snugness will affect longer runs. […]

Black Cherry Streusel Cream? Um, no.

I went a little coffee cream crazy a while back, buying the new Coffee-mate flavors, Hazelnut Biscotti, Tiramisu, Italian Sweet Creme, and Black Cherry Streusel. I just tried the Black Cherry Streusel, and this flavor just doesn’t do it for me. First off, this cream looks watery, pouring a little too freely from the bottle. […]

High Expectations for Starbucks Raspberry Mocha

The other day I get an email from Starbucks announcing their new summer drink, a raspberry mocha. Hey, a good combination – raspberry and chocolate! Just like the chocolatey, fruity goodness.

Blueberries and Coffee?

Blueberries and coffee? That’s not a typical combination I think of, but that’s the latest Coffee-mate creamer to enter the market.
