If people who prefer candy and chocolate have a sweet tooth…
What do you call it when you prefer salty snacks?
I’m a chips/nuts/pretzels kinda gal — no contest. So what body part is assigned to that?
This is very important.

A good friend of mine — a Chicagoland native — recently moved to the South, and relayed an experience on Facebook that made me smile.
He was looking for a banana and asked a woman at a fast food counter if they had any. Her reply?
“We have a banana pudding flavored doughnut.”
Now, it took my friend’s non-Southern brain a while to process this bit of information, but the banana pudding lover in me was PSYCHED.
Banana pudding is one of the greatest desserts on the planet. (They attempt to make it where I live now, but you have to go to the deep South to get the real thing.)
While I’m not the biggest fan of doughnuts as a rule, COME ON –
Ya gotta appreciate their ingenuity!!

ChaCha.com recently put together a list of some of the most unique fast foods available around the globe.
This was of particular interest to me because a couple of their choices were from Japan: McDonald’s Ebi-Fillet — that’s shrimp — and Burger King’s Spam and Egg Sandwich (pictured on the left).
I’m proud to say I didn’t frequent any fast food restaurants during my stay, so I didn’t notice these options.
What did strike me as slightly odd was the traditional breakfast in Japan:
White rice. A green salad. A thin, bland yogurt. And green tea.
Now, I might eat this for lunch if my main meal was delivered to the wrong table, but it’s not the flavor profile that I crave for breakfast. But my hotel offered it, and I ate it. When in Rome…
(I did break down and add sweetener to the tea. And to their credit, the natives didn’t wince too hard when I did.)

I’m a big fan of candy; no secret about that.
These jellies are particularly pretty.
Their ‘Tequila sunrise’ coloring is kind of lovely, going from yellow to that deep orange. And the package reveals that they have a liquid center, which may be tasty.
So you have to wonder what sicko decided to call them…
That just ruins the whole thing. And now I’ve ruined it for you, too.
Hope you’ve eaten.

I found a Fourth of July dessert that I surprisingly haven’t made. And it’s so simple.
Beautiful and easy.
I really hope someone makes it for me.
