import_contacts Fresh & Tasty

reviewed by Richard Luck

Published in Issue No. 12 ~ May, 1998

Fresh & Tasty has their act together. They’ve a solid direction, know who their audience is, and pack a whole lot of punch in a small package. Self-proclaimed as “The First and Only Women’s Snowboarding Magazine,” this zine has been lighting the fires of some of the biggest names in publishing from here to the Sour Apple. Everyone wants a piece of them. The masses are lining up to worship. “We’re not worthy! We’re not…”

Anyway, these grrlz get an A+ for graphics, even though I think the Anime look is quickly becoming dated – say, mid-90’s.

The content is unbelievable. They have interviewed some of the top women snowboarders around – including Olympic half-pipe gold medalist Nicola Thost, and their articles (like “How to Be A Professional Snowboarder”) are insightful, concise, and well-written.
