AWWW YUBA :( may her buggy eyed memory live on
@Red Ran Amber - I agree with RyanW2. While this has the spicy-mapley-sweet essence of French toast, it's missing the squishy, eggy bread element (which is grossing me out to write it like that) Give it a try! Honestly it was one of the most well-received cereals at SEHQ, even by some cereal-agnostics.
And friends, I don't think this is the end of our cereal musings, so stay tuned!
Well thanks, all! Appreciate the kind (and especially the creepy) words.
Dolly hugged me back RIGHT after the picture was taken, so...
Bring him the gabbagool.
GIVE ME THIS.
Finishing that 5K was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I ate more fettuccini Alfredo and drank less water than I have in my entire life. People always talk about triumphs of the human spirit. Well, today, I had a triumph of the human body. That's why everybody was applauding for me at the end, my guts and my heart. And while I eventually puked my guts out, I never puked my heart out. I'm very, very proud of that.
Well now, my lazy lunch habits finally amounted to something! This such beats the heck out of hand-ripping bell peppers. I should note that this technique does not actually serve to dress your salad, dry any inappropriately damp ingredients or otherwise add flavor or joy to your lunch (though smaller pieces are, in fact, easier to swallow through the tears.)
@All Good grief, what an shameful error. Of course they are Rich Frosted, not Frosted Devil's Food.
er, I was NOT.
@simon Not! This post was basically written in my mind at the age of 11. I wish I was enterprising enough at that age to mastermind compensation for this post, but I was that. All that to say, this is most emphatically not a sponsored post, I just love Entenmann's. Sponsored posts are indeed always, always clearly marked.
+1 @Cay The pancakes are my everything, shocked to not see them in this post!
@k_d Oops! Thanks. Must have been dreaming I was in the Sound of Music
@A Serial Cereal Eater - I have MAD LOVE for Entenmann's, but I figured I needed to narrow it to the kings of the single serve snack cakes. Entenmann's focuses on danishes and pound cakes. But they do dominate in many categories and I'm suddenly realizing the mini-muffins of my youth were actually Entenmann's Little Bites.
@SarahAreBee - WAIT ....LATE? ARE YOU TELLING ME THOSE ARE DISCONTINUED? LIKE THE SEASONAL ONES WITH THE JELLY BEANS? sorry for the caps but those are EXQUISITE. That fudge layer!!!
@katzimmer, imwalkin - You caught me. Sadly, I've not actually tasted a lot of Tastykakes offerings, but those who love them claim no other snack cake brand comes close. MAYBE I'M JUST A LITTLE JEALOUS CAUSE I DON'T HAVE ACCESS.
Anyone got love for Hostess mini muffins? The kind that covered your hands in grease if you even look at them? DELICIOUS.
@ +1 for Little Debbies oatmeal cream pies, Drake's coffee cakes (Seinfeld) and NUTTY BARS!
This column may just have to change to be called Snack (Cake) Attack.
@ESNY1077 - I've always wondered who actually CHOOSES Devil Dogs? I mean really.
@A Serial Cereal Eater - What do you think about the orange ones? I like NEVER got those cause why would you when you can get chocolate, but the orange ones are actually strangely good. LOVE me some Hostess cupcakes.
@gheehappy - COSMIC BROWNIES!!!! I went through a huge obsession with those. The dense fudginess and the colorful pieces on top and they were somehow dry/flavorless and yet delicious at the same time? Love them.
Is this what they have for dinner every night at Tim's House of Jeffs?
@EVERYONE - I knew I could count on some very serious snack lovers here. Can't wait to write about and hear your thoughts on: Fruit by the Foot, Little Debbies, Toast-Chee & Friends, any Hostess cakes (Yodels above everything), mini muffins, animal crackers (circus box) and MORE.
Snack! Snack! Snack! Snack!
ah, this was a great day in the office.
Best of luck, to a fellow Grape Nuts devotee! We'll miss you around here!!
Ok....I'm feeling VERY conflicted right now. Between my unpopular hatred for all things, especially pie, a la mode and my intense LOVE of ricotta.
Ok, the ricotta won. I want this!
