I like all sweet things, so, not long ago, my boss gave me a plate of chocolate pudding, beautifully decorated with whipped cream. After a few spoonfuls, it began to taste a little strange, in fact, as though some kind of meat was in it. But then the meat stopped tasting like meat; more like something very, very nasty. Very nasty indeed. Since the room was full of guests (we were catering for an event), I was unable to actually throw up, but it was very hard to hold back ... My boss's sense of humour - chocolate pudding on tuna fish. Glad that's all it was, but truly revolting.
I would think so. Worst food trick I ever had pulled on me was chocolate covered ants, and it wasn't such a big deal. The funny thing was I liked it, and the boys who gave it to me were very disappointed when I didn't cry.
I just had to look that up, as interesting as it is. This is what Wikipedia says about those and the other fruit flavoured chips:
'In the mid-1970s, Hostess decided to expand their lineup and introduced three new flavours, Orange, Cherry and Grape. The attempt was a dismal failure, and the products disappeared from stores only a few months later. The products were so poorly received they remain a topic of derision to this day.'
S'il vous plaît... as part of my summer tour, after I'm in London and the UK, I'm off to France. I'll briefly be in both Paris and Chartres and am looking to see if there are any Hub authors in those areas...
