I’ve moved my blog over to Here so if you’ve enjoyed my previous posts, head over there for all my new stuff!
Ok so our internet and cable is completely out so here I am at Panera. Boo no internet (also Panera is lame because it wouldn’t serve me soup 15 mins before lunch despite the fact that the soup was ready when we picked up our food 😛 ). We think the line is down behind our garage but currently we’re not sure. Hopefully it gets sorted out today but who knows. Until then I must find something to occupy myself instead of the WoW filled day I had originally planned 😦 . Until I can post, enjoy the picture of Gir missing his cupcake as much as I miss the internet.
I found something to take your mind off of the horrible gummies I posted the other day. They’re called Big Bite Gummy Bears.
I would post a picture of these big bears but they won’t let me have them 😦 .[Edit: I found a size comparison here and they are really big!.] Anyway they cost $15.83 for a package of 6. It’s pretty pricey considering they are just gummy bears. I would imagine that it would take you awhile to just get through one though so maybe they’re worth it. The available flavors are Cherry, Blue Raspberry, Grape, Green Apple, and Orange.
I also found some other cool gummy things starting with chocolate covered gummy bears. *drool* At $7.98/lb they’re also pretty pricey but I bet they are good. It’s also really cool because they don’t just look like blobs, you can really distinguish the bearness 😀 .
Now an amazing video about making a gummy bear spontaneously combust!
Looking at Thinkgeek today I saw that they had a new product out called Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets. If you eat one of these they’re supposed to make sour things taste sweet. Personally I dunno if I’d want to trip out my taste buds like that. Also, they’re not supposed to have any “harmful” side effects. It’s recommended to dissolve half of a tablet on your tongue but if you suck on the whole tablet the sour-sweet change is stronger. They’re pretty expensive since they cost $19.99. It’s candy people!
After seeing these candies I decided to look up weird foods and found a few worth sharing. First, Seagull wine, take a guess what it is. “Put a seagull in a bottle. Fill with water. Let it ferment in the sun.” – Weird-Food.com. Baby Mouse wine is similar. “Basically a rice wine bottle full of baby mice,” – Weird-Food.com. Except it’s supposed to taste like gasoline. Just what I want to drink gasoline yum.
Scotland has a drink called Irn Bru which I’ve actually tasted. It tastes exactly like pink bubblegum despite it’s bright orange color. Apparently there’s an indoor fair dedicated to it as well. It looks like fun actually.
Edit: [Irn Bru is sold in the US but I think it’s in limited locations. Also if word got out that it’s made from 32 fruit flavors I think Dr. Pepper would be in trouble with it’s 23.]
In my hunt I found more interesting suckers. They’re called Fruit Salted Plum Suckers. They’re coated with a brine salt layer on the outside with a salted chunk of plum (a.k.a. Sabroso) on the inside. I’ve read that the plum is only in the large plum suckers whereas the smaller ones have the plum plastered to the backside. Either way it sounds absolutely disgusting to me :).
I’d much rather have one of these strawberry flamingo suckers :D.
[Edit: Recently these flamingo suckers have been removed from the site 😦 .]
Also this delicious looking chocolate mousse!
Here’s the recipe here!
ok there I’m done being random :D.
I saw this “Grown-up Soda” (GuS for short) on aol today and remembered that I think I’ve seen it on the Food Network too. I definitely want to try it. It’s supposed to be just the fruit juice and some carbonation so it’s healthy and delicious. Anyways there’s a few different flavors available but I really want to try the pomegranate one cuz it’s one of the juices that I love. The Cranberry Lime also seems like it would taste awesome but really puckery :D. Anyways I’ve been wanting to go to Jungle Jim’s for awhile now but it’s far away. So I’ll just add this to my list of reasons why for the mean time. Anyways you can find it at several other locations so go try some and tell me how good it is :D.
