On my Facebook page there’s some kind of joke going about how I really like Bacon Deluxe burgers from Hungry Jack’s. Well I guess it’s not really a joke because they are probably my favourite burger ever and I’m sure I eat them more than once a week and have a habit of posting pictures of me eating them sometimes. Above is a photo of me holding my first Bacon Deluxe Burger of 2013. The first of many. I made this photo to commemorate that special moment. The photo got over 200 likes as well which wasn’t too shabby.
Above is picture of me that I pasted on top of a picture of a cat against an optical illusion that I saw in my Facebook news feed. I figured it would probably look better if I switched the head for mine and added Bacon Deluxe burgers over my eyes. I thought maybe this picture would make a good cover photo and would encourage people to buy them for me. It didn’t really work though. Someone bought me a McFlurry recently but that’s totally different.
This picture was made with two uses in mind, the initial Instagram photo for the POW! Fridays Instagram account to promote a dress up night in 2012 (can’t remember what theme it was) and then also to go with my article about the Hungry Jack’s Makes It Better App for iPhone and Android. I wrote that article a while ago but haven’t shared it or this picture on Facebook yet, I’ll do that today, hopefully people understand it. The joke is to do with how a lot of the old McDonald’s mascots are all gone and that the Hamburglar is now unemployed and uses the Hungry Jack’s app to get his burgers. I guess it’s kind of like a political cartoon but in a photo. Political cartoons aren’t really that funny. Oh well.
I originally posted this picture of Yoshi and some yoshi eggs in an egg carton on Facebook a year or so ago. My parents were not thrilled with me drawing on the eggs, I used whiteboard marker but because the eggs were porous it didn’t totally wipe off when I cleaned them
What are Snerdles? No one knows for sure but according to the packet they are “candied fruit strips” with Mario related images on them made with hundreds & thousands. I’m sure they taste great but I’m not sure because I don’t really open the packets of things like these because otherwise the empty packets would look silly in my collection.
The ? Block has way more Snerdles in it than the little 3 packs. The 3 packs come with different images on them depending on which packet you grab, you can see more images on the ? Block packaging.

I must have got this between 1998 and 2000 (judging by the expiration date of 30-11-2000 on the packaging) and the date of the copyright. For some reason I kept the packaging and found it a while ago. I had the “Yoshi Apple” flavour and it was quite good from memory. The other varieties are “Mario Strawberry”, “Diddy Kong Cola”, “Donkey Kong Melon” and “Bowser Blackcurrant”.
These are a kind of ringpop that you could attach to your finger like a ring and have the candy Mario body stick out like a giant ediable jewel. Despite the names of the flavours they were each shaped like Mario but were coloured to match the colours shown on the back of the packaging.
These were made/ distributed by Kids Korner Productions in Australia and are a “product of Malaysia, Australia and USA”
I got these in America at the same shop I got the gummy candy from. They were probably about $6-7 USD. Basically just Mario / Fire Mario standing on barrels that are full of generic lollies. The arms and head are posable. 3 points of articulation here. The pain job is a little bit blotchy and cheap looking. I think i remember the total of these and the gummies were about $20 usd. which was rather shameful. These toys are similar to the the ones by Popco/Ban Presto but a little smaller and made of cheaper plastic rather than vinyl.
Bought these just outside Disneyland California in a collectables store. Can’t think of the price off the top of my head probably about $3-5 USD each. Bought 5 packets but didn’t open any. As they say they contain 3 Rub-Off Cards, 3 Stickers and 1 Stick of Bubble Gum. As I haven’t opened mine I haven’t seen what they look like inside, but some quick googling gave me this: https://www.atari2600.com/cat–Video-Game-Memorabilia–SUB120.html so those look pretty cool, it a random scratchie version of the arcade game, guessing you have to take the right path without hitting an obstacle.
I have feeling the gum inside them would be pretty horrible by now I’m not sure what it was meant to be shaped like but it seems to be all broken up inside the packets. I don’t think they were like that when I got them but it doesn’t really matter.
I got these at a lolly shop in Monterey in California on my family holiday over christmas 08.
They are made by Au’some and look really, really nice to eat. I bought two packets with the intention of eating one them but I can’t bring myself to do it. These come with a card of some sort, you can just see it through the clear panel behind the mario lolly.
The characters are Diddy Kong, Mario, Yoshi and Donkey Kong… as seen on the box, these pretty much speak for themselves.They’re from 2007 and don’t seem to have an expiration date on them so I don’t think I’ll ever eat them. It is also good to know that they were made responsibly in China.
Found a good site here with lots of other Nintendo candies in it including a variation of these. Will take photos of more of my Nintendo / Video Game candies and post them soon and might forward them to this person’s site
