I Got Suckered Into Buying a McKung Fu Panda Meal

May 30, 2008

It consisted of 6 pieces of spicy nuggets, 10 onion rings and a drink.

How that relates to the Kung Fu-ing Panda, I have no idea.

Maybe pandas love chicken nuggets. And everybody knows Chinese people love spicy food.

And maybe the onion rings will produce spontaneous and explosive releases of gastrointestinal gases that will aid flying leaps and leaping kicks.

Either way, I ate the meal and still got no kung fu.

Chocolate and Orange and Mint

May 4, 2008

I’m currently nursing a bar of Vivani’s Fine Dark Orange, a 70% melt-in-your-mouth concoction that’s made of just four ingredients, none of which are unpronounceable quadruple-syllable words.

It helps that no one else in the household fancies dark chocolate, and The Brother, my most frequent chocolate-purloiner-adversary, is especially averse to chocolate-orange combinations.

I would love to get my hands on their Fine Dark Green Tea, Fine Dark Cassis, Praline Chocolate and Winter Chocolate. Even their made-for-kids Felix bars look yummy. Check out the rest of their stuff here.

The lovely Chocablog has also enlightened me to the existence of a certain Lindt bar, the Chocolat Provence Orange-Thyme Fantasy. Sounds delish. Someone get me one!

Another of Chocablog’s post appealed especially to me – the Lindt Excellence Mint Intense. Mmmm… bright mint, rich chocolate. None of that sweet white fondant. Can’t go wrong.

Ok… Time for chocolate break.
