1.0 out of 5 stars Just Perfectly Awful, November 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
this stuff is... <shudder> really bad. I'm not generally picky about food - you know, like EWWW it's got MSG and it's made in CHINA and probably has GMOs and cooties! - not at all. and I like the Velveeta Shells and Cheese quite a bit. but this stuff? oh no. never again. you have been warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Caribbean-Asian Fusion, August 23, 2014
I love this pineapple coconut rice mix. I make it with ground pork (not sausage) instead of chicken, and - for that International Fusion feel - add a biggish spoonful of Huy Fong (Rooster Brand) Chili Garlic Sauce. try it.

1.0 out of 5 stars you must be high!, July 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really liked these popovers, but $71.94 + $17.99 shipping? you must be high! this stupid price increase has finally pushed me to making my own, which turns out to be dirt simple.

1.0 out of 5 stars the "too salty" reviews are right, April 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm not one to complain about high sodium content, in fact, I usually find such complaints a bit on the obnoxiously prescriptive side. however, this stuff is absurdly salty. I used it on scrambled eggs - big mistake. maybe I'll use up the rest (over the next 50 years or so) in big cauldrons of chili or something. but do take these negative reviews seriously unless you either LOVE salt, or just don't care which mama you slap.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why the huge price hike?, February 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I like the noodles just fine and would have given this product 5 stars, but when I ordered them on November 1, 2013 they cost $27.32 and now they're going for almost exactly twice that price. for this, I have dropped my rating to 2 stars. how does the seller rationalize such a huge price increase? it beats me. unless the price returns a lot closer to what I originally paid, I'll be shopping for another product. bummer, because I do like the noodles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jeneane can write, December 5, 2013
This review is from: Smokescreen (Kindle Edition)
Jeneane Sessum was an early blogger and she can really *write*. You might think that automatically goes with the territory, but sadly, it does not. I spent a lot of time with her on the phone during the period described in this book, and know first-hand the hell she went though to quit (I got my own shot at the same hell several years later). If you want an insightful window on the process of dumping cigarettes and catching your breath (so to speak), you could do worse than starting here. and hey, only 3 bucks!

1.0 out of 5 stars love these... BUT, November 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
right now these are *three times* more expensive than I can get them at my local supermarket. this seems to be an unfortunate trend with Amazon groceries.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best books on bogus Hindu nationalist "spirituality", August 26, 2013
The 1-star reviews are by the very sorts of people Meera Nanda is writing about here. One says, "Meera Nanda did not do a cursory reading of even western academics..." I know that, in fact, she has dual PhD's: one in Biology and one (from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) in Science and Technology Studies. The other claims that she is "currently working for Protestant Churches" - which is the height of absurdity. Nanda is a vocal atheist, as amply attested by her many essays easily available on the web. Her Prophets Facing Backward: Postmodern Critiques of Science and Hindu Nationalism in India is a brilliant scholarly work that has been widely (though not widely enough) praised for its insight into the deep roots of Hindutva intolerance. The people giving this book a single star are very likely part of that disturbing movement and, if so, not qualified to critically appraise this excellent and important work.

1.0 out of 5 stars a perfect storm of FAIL, August 21, 2013
Two world-class drama queens: Scott Brick and Ayn Rand together at last! The narration perfectly reflects Rand's petulant narcissism and didactic insistence that only SHE ever Got It Right. The ideal gift for those hard to please don't-tread-on-me Tea Party pals.
