Bon Appétit's best taste tests (we think)

Bon Appétit have been doing reviews on supermarket food (and other things you can lick) and ranking them. Here are the "Taste Tests" we think are the best (our ranking of their rankings let's say).

A Definitive Ranking of 23 Bonne Maman Flavors

So they've recently ranked 23 of the Bonne Maman jam flavours. From Quince Spread, to Fig Preserves, Blackberry Jelly to Orange Marmelade. HOWEVER we can't get over the fact that they've ranked the Four Fruits Preserve down at 10/23, that one is definitely the BEST. Let's agree to disagree?

A Definitive Ranking of Cheddar Cheese Crackers

Ok this time they've got it alright. We very much agree with the goldfish situation, one of the best snacks. These are all American snacks so we might not be able to find all of them over here, but at least we'll know what to pick if we do hop over the pond anytime soon.

Sampling ten versions of vanilla ice cream so you don't have to

Featuring Haagen-Dazs as one of their favourites, but I think over here in the UK we are pretty good at vanilla ice cream so think we beat them by far..! We have clotted cream vanilla ice cream, Cornish ice cream, the basic Tesco one... So much choice!

The 5 Best-Tasting Envelope Glues for Tax Day, April 15

Now of course they are a funny bunch over there. So why not do a taste test on enveloppe glue you may ask? This was written in 2013 when perhaps tax returns were still done via mail, here we can now do it online so no more enveloppe licking unfortunately, but just in case you want to know next time you buy enveloppes... These are also US brands but you could do your own test here? Send your feedback to us?!
