HRF Travis Scott Cactus Scott Meal

Image
I tried the infamous Travis Scott meal at McDonald's! 
The Cactus Jack meal is a collaboration by international fast-food icon, McDonald's, with popular rapper, celebrity, and new father, Travis Scott. The meal includes 3 items: burger, fries, and drink similar to a standard McDonald's meal. It closely resembles a classic 'Quarter Pounder with Cheese meal' from the restaurant... but I'll let you hear it from the video. 
Watch my reaction here:

Although the Travis Scott/Cactus Jack meal is no longer available, watch the end of my video to see how you can create it yourself using McDonald's standard menus items and a few tricks! 
Bon appetit foodies!  Heidi

BK Impossible Whopper Review

Image
After hearing hours of BurgerKing commercials advertising their Impossible Whopper throughout the past year, I decided to finally try the thing out for myself. Although I prefer McDonald's to BurgerKing, I do have a strong allegiance to the chain, so I felt it was my duty to give their new animal-friendly, sustainable product a fair review... and I was quite glad I did actually.


TL;DR~ It was good.

Whataburger's Dr. Pepper Milkshake

 Whataburger®️ 's New, Limited Edition Dr. Pepper®️ Milkshake

ConsistencyI am pretty particular when it comes to milkshakes, as you will learn in a future post of mine, and I can feel a noticeable change in texture from Whataburger's…
