What will those people at Kettle Chips think of next? I’ve never even drank a Moscow Mule, but had to try these chips. Lime and ginger? What’s not to like. Definitely worth trying.
P.S. I bought these in San Leandro, CA
I believe it’s time to take American patriotism back from the right. Toward that end, I have painted an American flag, complete with 13 stripes and 50 stars, using acrylic paint on a wood panel. I then photographed and uploaded it, so you can get your own American flag stickers for your car, or t-shirt, or whatever. Now you can purchase patriotic merch and have your money go to support progressive values!
If I could be cynical for a bit…my brain thinks it’s visiting social media for some excitement, but what’s really happening is a desire to get an answer to one or more of the following questions:
Here’s the thing: Do I really want answers to these questions? I don’t.
Like anyone, what I’m really seeking is happiness. Remember happiness? Good old happiness. It certainly isn’t to be found in the realm of social media.
This is one of those “seems like a great idea” things. It’s a xylitol-based chewing gum that tastes like mint and…chocolate 😛 The chocolate is the problem in my opinion. Chocolate “flavor” has no place in chewing gum. It just tastes “off” to me. I gave the the rest of the packet to my 11-year-old who doesn’t seem to mind it.
In case you are interested, I bought it at the Target at Northgate, it was in the check out aisle.
I painted this concept originally in oils many years ago, at the Fremont Fresh Art festival and it sold at auction for $50. Years later I was bummed I didn’t have a high-res photo of it, so I did what any sensible artist would do: I repainted the thing. Now you can own your own copy, or have it printed on a t-shirt, skirt, or other fun stuff, by the nice folks at RedBubble.com.
This reminds me of a story someone told me about her trip to Pakistan. After a very spicy meal, she was grateful to see fruit served for dessert, but then horrified when she realized that even the fruit was dowsed with chili powder.
This lollipop, made in Mexico, is basically watermelon flavored candy, coated with salt and chili powder.
So you lick it and get the salt and chili flavor, then eventually you get the watermelon flavor.
I think this would have been decent, but for one thing: stale chili powder. It smelled musty and old and that made it pretty unpalatable for me. My husband was not impressed either. Our child, however, likes them. And anything that gets her experimenting with spicy food is worth trying.
I’ve had “milk” made from soy, almonds, hemp, oatmeal and some other things I’d probably rather forget. This is my first time trying macadamia milk. I tried drinking it straight, and it was ok. Just a subtle flavor of macadamias. Like most milks, this one probably works better in pancakes or hot chocolate.
