SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) - Has this recent cold snap got your feet looking and feeling pretty dry and cracked? Heel Tastic may help, but Does it Work?

It looks like roll-on deodorant for your feet, but instead, Heel Tastic promises to nurture your feet and get those toesies feeling soft again. Patty Smith volunteered to "try it before you buy it."

"This foot is my worst one," she said.

Patty has Scoliosis.  Her husband, Mike, often rubs her feet for her using a combo of lotions. He'd love to roll it on and maybe get better results.

"Yeah, it's like Vaseline," said Mike as he rolled on Heel Tastic to Patty's feet.

After applying it, Patty's feet already look and feel more supple, but also pretty greasy!

"Very greasy."

Next, Mike slathers on Patty's favorite green tea lotion to compare it to Heel Tastic.

"I don't think it's any better than the green tea lotion," said Mike.

Yup, both of Patty's feet look better after application. It's worth noting it takes a bit for the special oils in the Heel Tastic to absorb.

"You don't want a greasy feel when you put your socks on."

Still, Patty agreed to give her feet a few more applications to see if her dry, cracked heels would return to normal. So far, she's getting about the same results as the lotions, which are cheaper than the $10 roll-on.

"It's like Vaseline on your hands!" she said displaying her greasy hands.

The Smiths aren't so sure Heel Tastic is fantastic after all.

"I'd say a 'C,'" said Mike.

Patty did bump it up just a bit after a few more applications. She saw a little difference, but is still unsure this product is truly any better than a heavy lotion.  Heel Tastic rolls on a 'C' on this Does it Work test.

I bought Heel Tastic in the As Seen on TV section in Wal-Mart in Cape Girardeau.

Meantime, Heartland News viewer Sherri Wilson of Paducah agreed with these results and said:

"I bought this a few months ago and I wasn't impressed. It feels a lot like Vaseline and my husband can not stand the scent."
