Food things that should totally be sold by themselves

Postby semicolon » Thu Jun 14, 2007 4:54 am UTC

Do you ever eat something and think, oh man, these little brown things around the sides are the best part, I wish I just had a box of these? But then you kind of wonder, maybe they're only good in little bits, and if you had a lot of them, would they be gross after a while? Then you get all depressed because it's a question you'll probably never know the answer to.

Image
The little white sticks in Fun-Dip. I always get pissed off at them, because if you eat Fun-Dip for a long enough period of time, eventually the white stick scratching the roof of your mouth causes it to get all sore, and then the powder gets all over it and it stings, but even then, the white sticks are delicious enough for me to forgive them. It's probably just crystallized sugar or something, but they are delicious. I would probably just buy a lot of Fun-Dip and eat the sticks and throw away the powder (or try to make ghetto Kool-Aid), except I'd feel guilty for wasting all of it.

Image
The little brown chocolate lines on Chocolate Chip Pop Tarts. They're all crunchy and artificial-chocolatey and delicious. I usually pick them off and eat them before I get to the Pop-Tart itself. I'm pretty sure these would be gross by themselves, though.

Image
I don't need to go into any detail here (wow, this cereal picture is hella artistic).

Top o' the Muffin To You!

This issue has been partially addressed in a Seinfeld episode. Turns out, the homeless don't appreciate being given trash bags full of muffin bottoms.

I'd like to buy a bunch of the mashed potatoes they put into frozen dinners. I know it's just sawdust, but I find the consistency oddly pleasing.

Those black things in the Raisin Bran

I'll have to go with the "clusters" from Honey Bunches Of Oats. The flakes and everything just get in the way of those cinnamony nuggets of win.

Popcorn butter.

Hot chocolate marshmallows.

The peanut butter cups in the Peanut Butter Persuasion ice cream from M&M Meat Shops. If you are Canadian (just so you don't have any excuse) and do not know the goodness that is this ice cream, you don't know what you're missing.

I've been wracking my brain, but I've failed to come up with anything interesting. Mostly because I have alien taste-buds. I don't actually like frosting that much, and I tend to leave most of it behind. Though I do agree that muffin tops are scrumptious.

The only thing I can thing of is dumplings. I haven't had dumplings since I was a kid, and part of the dumpling yumminess is that they have all the flavor from the stew they were cooked in, so that really doesn't work on it's own.

I've seen those, check the dried fruit section in your local coles/woolies/supermarket. Though, it's been a while since I looked for yoghurt covered currants.

EDIT: duh, I mean where you normally find the sultanas and currants, you know, with the dried apricots and stuff?

They also had an episode where George introduced individually wrapped pudding skins. I myself don't particularly like the pudding skins, but it certainly fits in here, and I'm sure somebody likes them.

Also, I think you can actually get those mashed potatoes, or at least really close. My dad once bought this huge box of "potato flakes" where you just add hot water and you get those mashed potatoes. They tasted good at first, but I hated them by the time we got to the end of the box...

You would think twice about ever eating them again if you heard the sories I have (from staff at the Modbury, S Aus KFC, in case you are wondering) about 3 day old chips beign reheated, amongst otehr things.

Not quite on topic, but an AB without the lettuice. (For those who are so unfortnate to ahve never had one, and AB is a large plate of chips with yiros meat on top, a little bit of lettuice, adn covered in yiros sauce and BBQ sauce), and the lettuice is a real pain to eat when it is warm and coverd in sauce.

Jelly beans with just the licorice ones.

the stuff used to flavour crisps, in each of the good flavours.
The voices in my head tell me that I should write something here. Unfortunately, they won't tell me what to write.

Yeah, like this:

This is almost certainly untrue (I got it from TheFunniest (where else?)), yet at the same time, I felt like it just fits.

$100,000??

For what? Honestly, how do they come up with these figures?

Personally, I would have taken my 2 weeks of free meals and been on my merry way (and never eaten a chicken nugget again); but I'm not the "gouge 'em for everything they've got" type.

The chocolate frosting on Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I used to just lick the frosting off first before eating the doughnut. Was always full of win.

Same for the frosting on Dunkin' Donuts.

Hahahahahaha! I actually wouldn't be that freaked out. I wouldn't eat it, but it's just a damn chicken head. Meat does come from animals. With heads. In Jamaica people make Mannish Water Soup with scooped out skinned goat heads, feet, and scrotums. I will never fucking eat that, but I guess it's stuff like that makes me think fried chicken heads and 3 day old fries aren't that bad.

Also, that woman looks a lot like my aunt Karen.

Hm.. oddly, I find KFC's fine in Kentucky.. just not in and around Louisville.

There's not much I can think of right now that I want separate.. it all pretty much does, or if I really cared I could just make it myself, in the case of the Peanut Butter Chex Mix, for example.. I could just make it myself and then not have to deal with the pretzels to get at the delicious ceral bits.... but that requires effort, and I'm lazy.

My sister and I always had this idea of opening a store that sold all the things usually between cookies and stuff alone, like the cream filling in Oreos and the peanut butter in Nutter Butters. We would call it "Toss Your Cookies" :)

Actually, I think the creme in Oreos is kinda nasty; just sugar. But the cookies themselves are lovely.

There is probably a golden Oreo ratio. The cookie part is pretty necessary to the experience. I submit that 4x Stuf (that is the correct spelling) on one cookie half is the peak.

Also, I have noticed that Oreos are a lot easier to seperate now than when I was a kid. I think it's because the packaging is different now and keeps them fresher. When the cookies get a little stale and soft I think the Stuf sticks more. Now it is not too hard to peel the filling out of a Double Stuf to make the afore mentioned open-faced 4x Stuf cookie.

1.61803399 : 1

filling to cookie .....sounds about right to me.

so THE perfect oreo would be

3.23606798 units of flling to 2 units of cookie (plus milk)

the 4x stuffed would indeed come closest to filling the ratio. perfect indeed.

I'll agree out of repect for Fibonacci.


Even though it means that a single open-faced Double Stuf is over-filled. Which it clearly isn't.

open faced single sided double stuffed only exceeds the ratio by 40% while it's alot it's not nearly as overwhelming as a 4x stuf single sided would be!
