Orbitz and Independence Day: A Match Made in 90s Heaven

We’re no stranger to Orbitz here, having uncovered a bottle of Blueberry Melon Strawberry Orbitz, hoarding a flyer for an Orbitz CD offer and rollerblading championship contest, and even taking a trip back in time to look at the official Orbitz.com website before it was a travel company. And today we present another piece of Orbitz history. Bringing us back...

Obsession of the Day: Peanut Butter Recall

We’ve posted about peanut butter related stuff before and that went over well, so – what the heck – why not post another?  A friend sent me this song “Peanut Butter Recall” a few days ago and I haven’t been able to stop singing it around the house, at work, and on my billionaire jumbo jet.  This video from Weird...

The Argument for a Combos Dip

Pepperoni Pizza Combos (or Pizzeria Pretzel as we have now) are some tasty little bites. Combos were always a prime snack for me. A pack of Combos and a Slurpee from 7-11 were a weekly treat (ok, daily back in high school when my metabolism was bangin’). When I was younger, I used to love eating Combos in the shower....

Perfect Strangers Recipes: Mypos Salad and Mypos Mojito with Cousin Larry Appleton Rum

We’ve written previously about Perfect Strangers in such articles as 6 Things You Didn’t Know About Perfect Strangers, 8 Characters That Shouldn’t Rap, 6 Sitcoms That Would’ve Been Lousy Video Games, and 8 Alternate Casting Choices, but today is a celebration. That’s right– today, March 25, 2016, marks the 30th anniversary of Perfect Strangers, and what better way to celebrate...

Chris Elliott the Tostitos Pick-Up Artist?

Baked chips of many varieties seemed to pop up everywhere in the 90s. I’m still a fan of Baked Lays and Baked Cheetos. Advertisements boasted these lower-in-fat (as compared to the originals) like they were some kind of health foods. They’re not. But I’ll still eat them. Chris Elliott stars in the above commercial as a Tostitos pick-up artist, trying...

Bagel Bites: In Case You Wanted to Eat Pizza Anytime

Yo dawg, I heard you like carbs… Bagel Bites seem like such a magical thing in theory. Pizza? On a bagel? How could it go wrong? Well, they end up both soggy and hard as a rock. I jest of course, if I had a box of Bagel Bites in my freezer, I wouldn’t be writing this post right now....

PopRewind Podcast: Pizza Time

Welcome to Season Two of the Pop Rewind Podcast! We’re kicking off the new year with a slightly looser feel. And also a slightly hungrier feel as we delve into the topic of pizza: what we like, how we like it, and why Linz is wrong. Join us as we reminisce about the Pizza Hut Book It Program and learn...

Is Slush Puppie the Original Nyan Cat?

Slurpee, Icee, Slush Puppies. Everyone has their favorite frozen drink. I like ’em all, but Slush Puppie has a special place in my heart. Slurpees, Icees, and other frozen drinks with the flavor already mixed in seem to give you more bang for your buck. But if you can convince the teenager at the rollerskate rink to add an extra...

Little Caesars’ Wooly Bully Commercial

An interesting thing about Canada: instead of the “Pizza! Pizza!” slogan for Little Caesars, we have “Delivery! Delivery!” or “Quality! Quality!” Canadian pizza chain Pizza Pizza already trademarked the double pizza. And no, they didn’t steal the slogan– Pizza Pizza opened in 1967 while Little Caesar’s campaign wasn’t introduced until 1979. I grew up in a border city in Canada,...
