Taste Test

Taste test:

Our tasters started out wanting to taste one of the offerings from Oprahís new O, Thatís Good! line of foods. But we couldnít resist a few other new foods we also found on grocery store shelves.

And, like Oprahís latest offerings, most were rather healthy. We prepared the potatoes and the hot chocolate according to package directions.
