I agree with Le Savage regarding maple syrup on tourtiere...ridiculous. None of these chips sound appealing to me. Surprised they didn't do a beer flavoured one!
Reading this while eating a piece of matzoh. Oh, the thrill....
Ummmm...coffee with pepper intrigues me. Have to try that. Thanks @tinybanquetcommittee!
Oh yeah, those toffees with the black cats on the wrappers, and the overly sweet but yummy and inevitable candy corn.
These are all candies you can get all year. My favourite Halloween candy was always Rockets 'cause they were hard to find any other time.
Love the site! Especially love the guitar cheese set! Music and food....sigh of happiness.
Icky, icky and again, icky. Mind you, I used to drink Kraft Italian salad dressing on its own, so who am I to ick?
Lol....Hambone cracked me up...don't think he's a suit and tie kinda guy but he sure looks adorable. Thanks for the laugh.
I love your Euro posts...please, may I have some more?
Who let @jekz through? Take it away, please. :)
Btw, it would be great if you could include some Cdn. organizations.
I'd like to commend you for taking up your valuable space with something non-profit (in the financial sense only, of course), but so helpful and informative for your readers. I truly appreciate this, thank you.
I agree with Kenji, it's a textural thing. The only fast food I eat.
The fascinating thing was that when I tried one in Amsterdam (only for research, I swear), it was so much fresher, thicker and crispier than any I'd had in N. Amer. They gave away mayo for free but charged for ketchup.
I find these cultural differences are (haha) food for thought.
Yummm...kasha..one of my favourites. No one made it like my bubbe. :)
Also, used to love Red RIver cereal, buckwheat based, as much as I hated Cream of Wheat (yuk).
My favourite fried food is what I refer to as a 'Cyprus' sandwich...fried haloumi, bacon, tomato, cucumber, squashed flat and eaten on the beach in Limassol. Sigh.
Love this post, and betting I'd love slivovitz, having the same Jewish, Eastern Euro. background. Thanks for sharing, I'd never have heard of it otherwise and I cannot tolerate Manischewitz. Love to learn aspects of my culture...especially the food/drink ones.
Schwartz's...oh, the days of my childhood!
Not that I've ever been, but I find the following site, based in Malaysia, fascinating:
Oh my, what a heavy topic. You need to think bigger. People react that way for a reason (usually). Repressed memories play all kinds of tricks on the body. I can think of many reasons this woman could be so ill.
I don't think all food issues are so serious and some people are just full of it, but it's really hard to judge when you haven't been there.
Btw, I DO feel bad for her kids.
@starry...I'm sure your sister wished for hair like yours. I have big, curly hair and when I was a teen I longed for the 'barbie' look.
Food myth....of course there's the wish-bone of the turkey. Oh, and the one that Carnation Instant Breakfast is actually good for you.
Noodle kugel, potato kugel, sweet kugel, savory kugel...go with the flow, eat it when you feel like it (required at Jewish holiday meals). :)
Orangina? Personally, I hate all artificial sweeteners, they leave a horrid taste in my mouth. My favourite will always be water but iced tea or coffee is good.
Vernors is a Toronto deli staple. I have many friends who will not eat a sandwich without it.
Loved it but realized Gordon Ramsay cannot act. That was pretty funny. The Simpsons almost always rocks!
Just half and half for me, please. Those fake things are icky to me. Put me in a situation with no alternatives, I'd settle for the basic, non-flavoured one or drink it black.
