But I was wrong, wrong, wrong-
What better way to promote Windows 7? BEEF!
SEVEN Patties! 5.1 inches of meat (and some bread and pointless other veggies when you are eating this much meat)
Let us know if you try it!!
Mega Mac from Mcdonald's (which now just looks wussy...)
Small, compact and cute measuring tape! Easily fits in a pocket or purse, personally I hate when I forget mine when I visit Home Depot, a small one would be a good idea for me!

A mixed bag of reviews from our taste testers:
"Not too sweet, enjoyable at first, but basically taste like medicines."
"Tastes like soda with the unique/distinct odor of beans. It is not Pepsi tasting, it is worst than Shiso or Cucumber."
"It does not taste like Azuki beans. Something like strawberry & Dr. Pepper, but just sweet with less flavor."
"Soda itself doesn't taste like the original product, but the after taste does...slightly"
"I like it! You like Dr. Pepper? I like that too."

Not sure WHY anyone wants a mirror which appears to have many cracks, but this is Japan, so I should stop being surprised by their designs!
You can only really get a clear picture of yourself in one of the corners, for 5800 yen ($64 US), you TOO can get a mirror that looks broken!

Rinkya staff members taste tested two kinds of Pan In A Cans!
Bread life- chocolate cream and muffin "type"
The use of the word "type" to describe is not comforting...
Our taste testers! Happy to oblige our A Rinkya Blog readers!
How many Rinkya staff members does it take to open a small can of muffin?
The muffin type bread life came with a tiny can opener, which apparently was difficult to use!
The trusty "sniff test"
And- they eat!
Chocolate dream review remarks-
"tastes like emergency rations, what you would think it would taste like."
"Chocolate bread was like fake food. It was OK though."
Muffin type review remarks-
"The muffin was actually good, sort of tasted like cornbread."
"Muffin – butter flavor is a little strong, but it’s still good. I would eat it again"
Overall consensus was:
"I would never buy it for myself, but for emergency rations (like earthquake) it is not bad"
There are numerous flavors of the bread available, so stock up your pantries:
Orange, Raisin, Milk, Cream, Strawberry, Honey Lemon, Butter, Blueberry, Vanilla Milk, Green Tea- a special Okinawa series- -Tropical, Purple Yam, and Black Sugar
Only 298 each, if you would like to try! Order via Rinkya Stores!
