New Bacon Provolone Marinara Sauce Review

Taken by Shinai

Cracked turkey and cheese melt with the sauce. A side of mango habanero kettle chips.

Presto has seemed to have jumped on the bacon bandwagon, as they have introduced new bacon provolone flavored marinara. I tried it, and think it’s a creative flavor. The overtone is a rich tomato base decorated with bacon bits. The scent of bacon reaches into the nose and rests there for a moment. There is a smokiness and slightly sweetened aroma that makes the mouth water. The soft provolone cheese flavor is muted in comparison to the bacon bits within the sauce. I thought of possible pasta and meat dishes that can meld well with the flavors of cheese, tomato and bacon and came up with these few ideas:

  • Use in pasta without meat. This allows the flavors of the bacon marinara to resonate in the bland starch.
  • Use in pasta with sausage. The sausage and bacon flavors paired with cheese and tomato in conjunction to the starchy pasta should blend well.
  • Use it as a spread on a sandwich. My favorite use for this has been the third option. I’ve used the bacon marinara on a cracked black pepper melt with white cheese. When warmed, this sandwich turned out to have heavy accents of cheese melded with the smoked bacon and tomato flavor.

Bacon Provolone Marinara Yumfactor: I give this one 3 tongues and a taste bud (3.5 stars our of 5). It’s fun to try and experiment with, plus it’s somewhat versatile. I love the creativity of the flavor. It’s not something I would buy every time I run low of marinara, but it’s worth a try.

Wendy’s Wildberry Frosty Shake Review

Wendy’s is overdosing on wildberries apparently. Berry Almond Salad, Wildberry Iced Tea and now, Wild berry shakes. Thankfully, the salad and the shake is amazing.  Now, let’s continue.

No fair! Mine didn't have the cool burgundy colored syrup on the whipped cream!

The consistency of the shake is a creamy, well balanced fusion of ripe strawberries, raspberries and tart blackberries that don’t overpower the overall quality of the treat. It’s thickness is your standard milkshake consistency, but for some reason, reminded my of liquid frozen yogurt. Not a bad thing.

Here’s Some Yummy Numbers: Nutritional Facts You May Want To Know-

  • Cholesterol-45

  • Protein-11g
  • Calcium-40%
  • Iron-2%
  • Vitamins (A)20%, (C)10%

Although mine didn’t have the cool syrup on the whipped cream, I’d say this frozen treat is worth a try, not too artificial tasting, though I’m sure artificial ingredients are present, but good enough to be gone in 3 minutes. Not literally, unless you want to experience brain freeze. I believe I paid about $2.29ish for the small size.

Wendy’s Wildberry Milkshake Yumfactor- 5 tongues. This is really good, and I have no complaints. Give it a try!
