I've tried that Dr. Pepper before and loved it. Granted, I wouldn't drink it everyday, but it's great to have once in awhile.


I know it looks really gross, but I love, love, love my Neti Pot. I have that exact one (the ceramic genie lamp) and I can't remember the last time I had sinus headaches/issues... and I used to have them ALL THE TIME. Plus, I hate taking medication, and when I feel a cold or something head-based start to come on, using that 2-3 times a day pretty much either lessens the symptoms or takes care of them completely.

I love mine. Best $11 investment I ever made.

As for the Dr. Pepper cake and Pickle Pops? Yick. Can't say I have or will be trying those any time soon!


Um. Sadly, I have had and love the Dr. Pepper cake. But please, don't tell anyone. Take it out of the package, throw it on a pretty plate - and VOILA! A dessert guests love and you bought at walmart. :-)


Hi-Found your site yesterday through definitely ra!

I have the Netti Pot, but haven't quite mastered the whole angling my head. I ended up choking on water, but I'm willing to give a few more tries before I throw it out...I've heard so many great things about it.


I've had the pickle pops. Odd, but tasty. Very salty but refreshing.


Recently my doctor recommended Nasopure, a nasal irrigation system referred to as the modern neti. I have tried both the neti and Nasopure and have found Nasopure far superior. I dont have to bend and twist like the neti and Nasopure seems to give a much more effective flush because it uses self controlled pressure instead of gravity. The angled Nasopure bottle allows for you to stand straight up while using it. Also, the salt packets that come with the product is much cheaper and seems more effective than that of the neti. I use one salt packet for about a week in the shower with Nasopure while the neti uses atleast one packet per use. Their website www.nasopure.com is very informative too and compares different nose washes on the market.


I really want to try a neti pot, but I have a feeling that all that water up my nose might freak me out....


OMG, I HAVE to try the Neti pot...I've heard such wonderful things about it, and like Anne, I get bad sinus headaches all the time! She just convinced me to go buy one!!

And I love pickles too...not so sure about a pickle pop...how 'bout you try it first and let me know??!!


Um, I would totally try all three.

ALSO - the Blueberry Blasters? I saw them when I was in Dallas and was so excited!


I have tried the neti pot. I have a neti pot. The doctor actually recommended it, because my sinus' are so bad. It's a little gross, but pretty cool and works miracles.


We bought an Orange Crush Cake last year while road tripping/camping. The reason they are sold in halves is because of the sugar coma that is secretely hidden in the package.

Thanks for the Post about the Pickle Pops. They are bizarre and refreshing for the closet pickle juice drinkers of the world. Keep an eye out July 29th on the Food TV Network show Unwrapped to see if we are for real. I still cant believe how this thing is taking off.


My roommate has the Neti Pot and we literally offer everyone who comes over a try. Although I personally have never tried it. But everyone who dares loves that damn thing. We're makin' believers everyday!!


the pickle pops taste just like real pickles, no fat under 5 calories and no sugar... YUMMY!!


Neti pots are wonderful. Remember gargling with salt water for a sore throat? Same concept. You actually don't feel the water up your nose, not like when you're swimming and you inhale the wrong way...the trick is, for one, to use warm water and salt. I think they say to use uniodized. The other important thing (I found out the hard way) is to tilt your chin TOWARDS your chest when you tilt your head to the side. If you don't point your chin to your chest, the water WILL flow the wrong way and feel weird.


I found your site a few days ago and I love it!

I don’t think I could do any of these three things. I do love pickles, just not enough to try the pops. I would think the NetiPot would feel the same as when water goes up your nose in the pool. Last, but not least just thinking of how many calories could me in the Dr. Pepper cake makes me feel like my skirt is getting tighter.


I've actually tried the NetiPot. My uncle and my mom swear by it but I think its weird. To each their own I guess.

I use the Neti Pot, and can attest to its awesome powers of nasal irrigation. As gross as it is (and it is gross), it is a wonder device. My sinuses are grateful.

I am DYING to try the Pickle Pops! I can't say the same about the Dr. Pepper cake - yuck!


I just found your blog through another blog. I haven't had the Dr. Pepper cake but I had to laugh about you saying you probably wouldn't like buy you'd have another piece anyway. I'm with you on that one... if it's in front of me, I'll eat it. NOT GOOD.

Hey! :) Haven't posted a comment in forever - but I do keep up with your blog :).

I think it's insane you just posted a pic of those Pickle Pops. I was just looking at them on the internet yesterday.

Why? I'm expecting and having horrid morning sickness and my SIL said to try pickle juice... I about vomitted at the IDEA...it wasn't all that bad- just little sips at a time. So I looked up "pickle juice for morning sickness" and found Bob's Pickle Pops.

I might actually try them :). Then i'll give a *real* review :).


I havent had the pickle pops or cake but I do use the netti pot on a regular basis for my horrific sinuses. It works well.


I am a closet pickle juice drinker! Luckily, my husband hates pickles so that means more for me :) Oh, and one of my best girlfriends swears by her neti pot, though I have never tried one.


Yo dawg, that Netti Pot is WACK!! Ya'll gotta check out the NeilMed Sinus Rinse system - it's the sexy and chic way to irrigate your nasal passages. Word up.


1. The pickle-pops sound a little bit gross, a little bit deliciious. I have definitely sipped pickle juice from the container, so I'm thinking I would enjoy it...but my sipping is usually only one or two sips, so I'm wondering if I would be able to enjoy the entire thing...

2. I don't have the neti-pot, but I have a very similar product made by the same company (I think). And, it is fabulous!! You definitely feel like you are drowning yourself at first, but it totally clears everything up and makes you feel great afterwards.

3. I'm not sure about that...
