I'd forgotten again..
So out comes my trusty meat-cleaver which I used to open the box, probably complete over-kill in opening cardboard and packing tape but still.. It was the closest blade at hand.. What should I find inside my box other than another box, this box a little better than the first however.. At least this box is full of something awesome, something epic, and something amazing; Pop Tarts.
Both are frozen in this photograph, I chucked the whole box in the freezer and it was decided that the small Cat would remain frozen while the little beaver mutant things were nuked in the oven to neigh molten status for the taste-test. Buck-tooth bastards had it coming trying to sled on my Pop-Tart. Time for the oven you shits.
Taste-wise I nearly burnt my goddamn tongue off on these, I tried to molest it in a very unceremonious and inappropriate fashion by shoving my tongue into the creamy recesses of it's nooks and crannies and then promptly cursed myself questioning what the fuck I was thinking shoving my tongue into something fresh from the oven.. At any rate.. It's very good oven-warmed, the crust of the actual biscuit half of the pastry became very cookie-like and crunchy while becoming soft and moist on the filled halves, it was a very nice textural difference. Crunchy and flaky on the outside, moist and soft on the inside.. The filling itself and the Pop-Tart itself? They taste like Sugar Cookies which is to say it's hard to fuck up sugar cookies, I mean.. They taste like sugar.. Durh.. But I can't answer which is better until I've reviewed our second state Tart.. Here we go..
So it's another day and I've decided to try the Printed Fun Sugar Cookie Pop-Tarts again, this time I've opened a pack that sports a strange snowboarding beaver thing and a penguin in a scarf. For the purposes of identification, the neigh molten oven-heated Pop-Tart is the beaver thing and the frozen? The penguin. It seemed to fit, what do you want?
At any rate the second thing I found while screwing around in my freezer quite some time ago was another candy bar, not just any candy bar; high tier and 'hoity toity' shit. A Ghirardelli bar.
Who came up with the idea of filling these with flavoured goo because they person deserves a fucking medal. Everyone's bitching about Obama having won a Nobel Peace Prize, well.. Here's a quick fix, give the medal to the person who invented the goo-filled chocolate bar! This thing is capable of uniting the world in peace, everyone except for the lactose intolerant at least and the lactose intolerant can suck a dick. We can have special gas-chambers made especially for them that will fill with milk-gas, that's right. MILK GAS. - Why not?! We can make other things into gaseous states, why not milk!?
To be perfectly honest the filling falls a little short for me because although it's definitely raspberry and the flavour is there, it's very light and very weak.. It's a little disappointing to be perfectly straight, while the rest of the bar and the chocolate itself is rather nice with it's sweet and bitter tones balancing each other out the filling doesn't really add much or take anything away really. Thankfully I guess.. It definitely works with the chocolate, I just think it works too well and becomes slightly.. Bland.. Like it works so well you just don't notice it..
Also I'm just grumbling and probably biased because it's not White Chocolate, damn it. I'll be bent out of shape about that for eternity... Or at least until they release a White Chocolate version of this bar.
Amai raimu niwatori bisuketto (Sweet Lime Chicken Biscuit) is the dish I've created tonight and is a Japanese inspired take on a.. Well, Grilled Chicken Biscuit. Featuring a home-made biscuit, grilled chicken BOOOOOB!, a custom home-made Sweet and Sour Lime Sauce, and the sides of a Carrot Cake Anpan (Sweet Roll) and Carrot Cake satsumaimomasshu (Sweet Potato Mash) aside from the Anpan turning out a little weird I can't complain; I'm very proud of the biscuit itself.
Since I know some people that I more or less consider family at least I do, I'm not sure if they consider me family I'd like to point out something rather interesting. I know I'm a bit late to the party in addressing Kim Jong Il's death but I'd like to point out and offer my condolences to the fact that evidently while Kim Jong Il is in fact dead and passed his son has succeeded him and his son? Well...
