Snack Review: Hot Pockets Sandwiches Pepperoni Pizza

Details: Official site is https://www.hotpockets.com/en

Score: 6.4/10

Hot Pockets get the job done when you’re starving, they just aren’t very big nor are they very good. Melted cheese is one of those ingredients that easily improves any food and I think they doubled down on that here.

I purchased this item simply to throw in my freezer and save for days where I was starving and didn’t want to go outside. That’s it. Hot Pockets aren’t delicious, they are desperate. This is desperation food. You eat this when you are absorbed in a video game and refuse to leave your seat. You eat this when there’s a blizzard or pandemic going on and all businesses are closed. You don’t eat this when there are a ton of other options available.

I bought a box of these where each individual pocket costs a little over a dollar. I have no idea whether that is or is not a good price. I think it’s decent since the average price a slice of pizza in New York City has risen to about three dollars, though there are many places that still sell the $1 slice.

Overall, don’t buy these if you want something tasty. Buy these things for the days when your desperate.

Snack Review: Kraft Singles American

Score: 6.5/10

If you’re looking to buy cheap, individually packaged, overly processed American cheese meant for sandwiches, then you must buy Kraft Singles. You simply have no choice. I tried almost every other brand at the supermarket because they are cheaper, but they all tasted worse in every way.

Restaurant Review: Bread and Honey

Details: Located at 941 8th Ave, New York, NY 10019. Official site is https://www.breadandhoneynyc.com/

Bread and Honey is a lunch place that largely caters to the lunch rush for workers in the area. There are some places to sit inside.

They’ve got a hot buffet and cold buffet that costs around nine dollars per pound. They also have a sandwich station and I think a noodle station. They also have shelves with packaged goods.

The buffet is not great. The quality of the food is not great. I also had an Italian sandwich for a little under nine dollars after tax. It was fine.

Overall, this place is okay. The best thing to get here is probably a breakfast sandwich.

Score: 5.8/10
