Yearly Christmas Mall Haul!

My biggest event next to my Halloween mall haul.

This year while I didn't find much limited edition items, I did find tons of cute bath bombs at Target of all things...really scored on those.

So I split the haul into two videos this year as it was a big haul. First part is Bath and Body Works and Daiso. Second part is just Target! Tells you how much junk I bought at Target lol.

Here's part one:

And part two:

Hope you enjoy them!

Dollar Tree and Trader Joe's hauls

Since I've been lazy, here's a two for one. I filmed these a bit ago but just never bothered to put them up on here.

First one is Dollar Tree. If you're looking for last minute gifts/stocking stuffers hit up the Dollar Tree! They have tons of cool stuff. A lot of really great things for kids like DIY science kits. I show some off in this video.

Then Trader Joe's...I hit it up one more time in hopes of finding everything, still didn't find it all...

Thrift Store Holiday Mystery Bags

I was out in a city I don't often go to for a craft fair when I thought I should swing by one of the thrift stores to see their holiday items. This store had some large bags filled with random holiday items for a few bucks each. I got two that I thought might have some good items. So I show that off in the video as well as some other finds.

Winter treat haul from Walmart and Trader Joe's

I shot this early in Nov, but was super lazy about posting it. Oh well.

One thing I've noticed (then and now, still...) is that there's not a lot of new limited edition foods this year. They're all...from last year or package redesigns. I mean there are a few things here and there that are new, but it's pretty slim when compared to last year. I have to say that Halloween felt that way as well. Wonder why this year was so bad?

Anyways, my yearly big mall haul is coming soon. Look forward to that!

Dinosaur Dracula November 2017 Funpack Unboxing Video!

Because I kept forgetting to post it...here it is at the end of the month...whoops!

So plans on Christmas. I'm probably going to do two more vintage recipes this year. Older ones though...from the 1950s. And I'll take a few pictures of my Putz house that I'll be making.

Probably going to shoot a few videos. I have yet to do my huge haul, so expect that.

I'll take some pictures of my Christmas decorations...and Hanukkah ones as well when Hanukkah rolls around!

Anyways here's a video because why the hell not.

Halloween Mood Table 2017!

I should have uploaded this yesterday...but oh well?

This is my Halloween Mood Table for 2017. This year I themed it "nostalgia". Aka all the random Halloween related stuff I had as a kid and some stuff I didn't have as a kid but still give the nostalgia vibe. Tons of 80s and 90s stuff. Figures, books, games, slime, stickers, VHS...just a huge assortment of awesome stuff in my opinion.

A lot of this stuff came from Dinosaur Dracula Funpacks. And currently as of this posting, he's doing his huge Halloween Funpack! This is his best one out of the whole year, so if you ever wanted to try it and see what one is like, get the Halloween one! I can't wait for mine to come! I'll have to make room on the Mood Table to fit the items in for the time remaining in October...I hate pulling down the mood table so I actually keep it up till Thanksgiving lol...

But that might also be because I'm lazy? Maybe...

Anyways here's the video!

Enjoy :D

Biggest Halloween Haul of the Year!

It's that time again...the time where I make my yearly trek to the mall and shop till I drop!

I visited the old haunts, Dasio, B&BW and of course Target...the sacred place for all us limited edition lovers. Overspent by a ton but it's my once a year blow out.

I forgot/couldn't find several items...even at Target...this year has been a bit of a let down when it comes to the limited edition foods. A lot of them are repeats of last year, some I just can't find at all and others barely made any change. A few things have snuck in...but it's nothing compared to last year. What a shame. Even the Monster Cereals were a let down this year.

Anyways...onto the video!

And yes still sick. Try to enjoy it through my sniffles.

Walmart Halloween Haul

I'm currently recovering from a nasty cold that's lasted way to long...but I made a video...or two. Reason being I got some perishable items and wanted to include them in the video. So warning you now, I don't sound great. If you don't like bodily noises like sniffling, clearing my throat and so on, don't watch it!

I tried to keep that stuff to a minimum.

Anyways here's the video. Got a lot of food items of course, but didn't find everything on my list sadly. I also include some stuff I grabbed at Walgreens.

Horrorthon 2017!

Just one day late...

I actually have a good excuse this time, I was at GeekGirlCon in Seattle! So busy and I came down with a nasty cold so don't expect any videos for a while.

Anyways the Horrorthon. This year I'm going with a 80s theme. All movies on this list are from the 1980s. They go in order of year released (except for the series) so 1980 at top, 1989 at bottom. I'm also limiting it to stuff I own (save for Pet Sematary, which I actually bought for this). So if you see some obvious movies missing, that's why!

And no, I won't be doing reviews...we've seen how that works out. I'd much rather just watch and enjoy myself.

An assortment of Halloween and Autumn Foods

This one is a mixed bag. Totally all over the place and most of the stuff has no prices...it was stuff I was holding onto until I had enough to shoot a video. I don't like shooting videos until I have enough junk food to show off.

Oh and some stuff from Homegoods...not as much as last year sadly. Their selection was large but nothing caught my eye...no vintage looking items. That's what I go for there...vintage looking 1950s or so era decorations. Just love that classic Halloween look to vintage decorations. Simple yet so perfect. And some are pretty messed up looking. Google it if you want to have nightmare fuel.

Anyways the video:

Hope you enjoy it!

Dinosaur Dracula Sept 2017 Funpack Unboxing Video!

What a title lol. So I made an unboxing video of this month's Dinosaur Dracula Funpack. It's a rather long video as I gush about how much I adore his website lol. So skip to 8:40 if you want to just see the "goods".

If you guys like this, please let me know here or on Youtube. I'll do monthly unboxing videos if you guys really like them, otherwise I'll just stick to Sept and Oct unboxing videos.

First Halloween Haul of 2017!

So I've been not really feeling this year. There's not a lot of decorations I'm after and the food I've seen is mostly repeats of last years foods. There are a few new foods mind you but they're harder to find and are so-so on taste. I started my mood table but even it's half finished. As if it's a statement about this meh season.

That's the main reason I haven't posted much this month...just lack of stuff. And a very meh feeling.

But I do have two videos worth of items so...not horrible.

Here's the first video.

Random stuff from Dollar Tree...lol.

The Start of Autumn and Nostalgia Bites?

In something new, I took pictures. Easier then making a video but I'm wondering if it's as interesting?

Anyways here's some pictures of the first Autumn/Fall/Halloween decorations I saw at my Fred Meyer's...as well as a blackberry pie me and my mom made from blackberries in our backyard (the heart was my idea!).

Doesn't look great but tasted amazing!

Some outside decorations.

These were hidden back in the empty housewares area...as the mat says...spooky.

Random Autumn items. Liked the glass blown pumpkins.

The Foxes were adorable and I wanted one!

More Foxes!

And the first Halloween magazine!

So hopefully that was of interest?

I also had an idea...when I'm not reviewing my normal weird limited edition foods...why not try my hand at reviewing food that I ate when I was a kid...that's still around in some shape/form? Like Lunchables or Kid Cuisine? Going to call it Nostalgia Bites. Bought a load of Lunchables actually because I didn't realize how cheap they are (great for a snack!) so yeah...it's happening!

Last Days of Summer

So it's been awhile! Lot of stuff has happened...not all of it good.

The good would be I joined a local D&D group! Who would have guessed. I was never really into that part of the geek universe...but I wanted to get out of the house and practice talking to people and this helps. I also wanted to make friends but...it's not going that way. No one is interested in that sadly. Group isn't that friendly...but I like the game so I stick with it.

The bad would be house troubles...and money troubles...not mine...but my parents and in some ways mine as it effects me.

But not much I can do to change that so...I have been working around the house helping my parents...long days...up at 9 am and stop for an hour of lunch then back at it till 6...you'd think we would be done with all that time invested but nope...it's endless.

Anyways, enough doom and gloom. Just saying why I haven't been able to really update...that and I haven't had a lot of food hauls as I said in my last post.

But to bring in Autumn, I want to send off Summer with my Summer food finds. I've already recorded my first Autumn/Halloween pickup so...plan on seeing that soonish.

For now, enjoy.

Unboxing Breath Of The Wild Master Edtion

So back when the Master Edition was up for pre-order, I ordered it. I shot a video of myself unboxing it because why the heck not. This was and still is my first and only Switch game. I still haven't gotten a Switch...waiting this Winter, I think they might make some sort of bundle deal for Christmas. Maybe bundle a game with the system or something. I was hoping they'd make a Zelda edition console but since they're selling console "skins" to put on the consoles...I doubt they're going to make limited edition consoles. Shame.

And with that, I'm all caught up on my video backlog. No more videos...I haven't been getting any food hauls, just random foods...usually holidays are when you end up getting a lot of limited edition foods. I'm thinking about doing a summer food haul if I can get enough weird foods together.

Candysan "Moe" Treats

Speaking of Candysan, I got a package of "Moe" themed treats from them a while back and shot a video of it...and never put it up on here. So here it is!

A little info on "Moe". Moe is a slang term that basically means strong feelings of attraction to characters in anime/manga/video games. Moe can also be used in the sense of sexual attraction. Which is what these packages are trying to provoke in people.

As I say in the video, I'm not into the sexual side of Moe stuff. I'm transgender and gay which means I'm into men not women. So this stuff doesn't "excite" me like it's meant to. It's made for male consumers, not female (unless your gay) and straight males at that. I just think Moe stuff is super cute.

If you want to learn more about Moe I suggest Googling it lol.

Iceberg Curry and an Update

So awhile ago I got a package from Candysan that had a box of Iceberg Curry in it. I was holding off on eating it while I did my diet but now that I've stopped, I'm eating as much of the Japanese snacks as I can since I'll be going back on a diet after I talk to my GI specialist and nutritionist.

Now about that update. Sorry I haven't posted anything...my computer is sucking up all my time lol. I've also been busy helping my parents out around the house. I have quite a few videos waiting to be put on here...including holiday ones...urg. Better late then never? I'll try to remind myself to post more on here...

Anyways I thought I'd comment on the curry.

Now I know how it looks but, don't judge a book by it's cover. Literally since it's supposed to look like this.


So since I can't read Japanese and the site didn't have much info on this, I'll just copy and paste the info they do give.

"This curry comes straight from Hokkaido in northern Japan. This combination of blue and white curries reproduces the ice of northern Japan in winter. The color of the curry is obtained from natural ingredients. This is the only natural blue curry in the world, and Candysan is the first official partner of the manufacturer to sell it outside Japan."

"This curry with fruit is not sweet. It remains spicy with a good curry taste. Adding fruit sweetens the dish a little, giving it a fruity aftertaste and a delicate fragrance. Japanese curry with fruit is known to be generous and use good quality ingredients."

I'll be grading this on texture, taste, smell and appearance.

I should note that the box came with two packets. One the blue, was the curry "sauce" the other; the white; was a thin and watery cream sauce with chicken in it.

Appearance - F

As you can see from my picture and the picture on the box, the appearance is way off. The box curry looks thick but fluffy, rich and creamy and the color is much brighter. The real curry is thin and off color.The actual curry part was thicker then the chicken sauce but not as thick as the box makes you think. The white sauce was also having issues with separation. As you can see in my picture some of the oil was floating to the top.

Smell - C

"Delicate fragrance" Another lie. It smelled like packaged curry sauce...nothing new.

Taste - B

This is where the curry wins honestly. The taste is great. It's spicy but not OMFG MY MOUTH IS ON FIRE like most curry's that are labeled as "spicy" are. I'd say if normal spicy curry is a spice level 5, and curry they feed to kids is a 1, this curry is a 2.5 or possibly a 3. It was hot enough to tingle my mouth but not burn it like most spicy food does. Though I have no doubt I'll have heartburn later.

Anyways the taste. It's spicy, you can taste the curry and spices they used, but it has an undernote of sweetness that I've never really had in a curry. Odd since most Japanese curry is sweet. But where other curry hints at sweetness, this one it really stands out. It's not like a candy sweetness...it's like a savory sweetness. Like you might get from a BBQ sauce. It's delightful.

Texture - D

The texture isn't very good. The blue curry is like most instant curry, not thick but not thin. Average but the chicken white sauce is horrible. Very runny and watery. When I first poured it out it splashed all over the place. The taste is creamy though.

So overall this is a somewhat average instant curry with an interesting sweetness to it. If your into curry I'd say go for it. More so if you can't handle spice like me. You can find the curry on Candysan and it's currently on sale (I'm not being paid by them FYI...wish I was!). So now might be a good time to try it.

Of Candy Kits and Computers

Been fairly busy this month. I finally saved up enough money to buy my computer parts for my new PC, I'll leave the specs down at the bottom. I didn't buy everything though. I still need a new monitor, keyboard and mouse but those can be bought after awhile...I just wanted to get the basic stuff I needed as this computer is just...a clunker. I don't know how it's still running honestly.

Besides that I made a video about some Japanese candy kits I got...Poppin' Cookin' ones. I've always wanted to try them but import fees were insane...well now I can try them because my local Asian market got a bunch of them in! Yay :3

Let's see...oh and I'll have to hold off on making those kits for a month or two...I'm currently on a strict elimination diet which is NOT fun.

Other then that I've been working on taking pictures of my game collection as it stands now and trying to make progress with my new game room. It's slow going. I've really only carried stuff from my bedroom into the game room honestly...I need to do a lot to that room but other things keep getting in the way.

Things to do for game room:

- Paint
- Figure out shelving
- Get light fixtures
- Put plugin covers on
- Figure out how to block the sun
- Figure out heating/cooling
- Get a TV
- Get a comfortable chair
- Start moving games/consoles in

All of these things need to be done in the order they are on the list. Like, I have to have my shelves built before I put my games on them, and I need the room heated because it gets cold in there and I don't want my games in a cold room...and I also need to figure out how to make that horrible smell go away...the paint on the walls now stinks to high heaven...I'm hoping a new layer of different paint will get rid of the stink.

Anyways enough of that, here's the video of the kits and my PC specs.

Hope you enjoy it.

All the stuff I got for Christmas/Hanukkah

Finally got around to uploading those videos...so here they are.

Not much to say on this other then it's just videos showing off all the stuff I bought for myself and stuff given to me during the holidays...pretty damn late but eh. I'm lazy like that!

Monday, January 9, 2017

Working out the backlog

I have four more videos to show off, two I'm going to show off right now. The other two are actually one but I had to split it up because it was a long video. These two were shot before Christmas.

First up is my annual Bath and Body Works haul video...I always go to B&BW before Christmas, so many lovely scents.

Second up is a Goodwill haul video, they had a few holiday related items I wanted to show off. It was also the last thrift store haul of 2016.

I hope you enjoy them. I plan on uploading the other two videos soon if I can get Youtube to work with me on this...stupid videos.
