    Here are a few more products we’ve tried recently:

    30 Day Shred- This is the latest workout DVD from The Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels. She’s not too annoying and I liked the workouts, which felt effective. But I don’t understand why manufacturers create DVDs so that you can’t skip the minutes-long opening. I don’t have five minutes to listen to Jillian’s spiel every time I work out. So I sold the DVD on Amazon. I guess that’s the barometer – I liked the workouts, but not enough to endure the intro every time I exercised.

    Bic Soleil razor – I hated this razor even more than I hated the Schick Intuition. With the Intuition, I felt like I was getting a good shave, but was afraid that I would cut myself because of the way it was shaped. With the Soleil, I felt like I was scraping sandpaper up my legs. Needless to say, I tossed the razor immediately.

    Oreo Cakesters – Marc described these as “stale Oreos,” which I found to be quite accurate. They’re not unpleasant, but we both prefer regular Oreos to these.

    Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers Cajun Style Chicken & Shrimp – I don’t like frozen entrees very much, but keep a few around for quick meals. They pretty much get divided into two categories: I’d buy them again or I wouldn’t buy them even if they were free. This particular entree falls into the first category – I was pleasantly surprised.

    Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers Sweet Spicy Orange Zest Chicken – Although this dish doesn’t have the crunch of traditional orange chicken, it was perfectly edible and I’d buy it again.

    1. I love your quick product reviews. I'm sad to hear that you sold The Shred. I love that DVD. The long intro is annoying though. I usually turn it on and then get into my clothes, set up, etc. By the time I'm done, we're both ready to get started.

    2. ly tI tried the Bic Soleil once b/c I got it free — I freely threw it in the trash as well! It was horrible!
