CURSE YOU MEW! lol

Heh, I see them in the stores all the time :P But I'm honestly not sure if I have ever had them before (definitely haven't had the chocolate chip kind).

You know what is good... Frozen cinnamon toast waffles (as in, still frozen) with ice cream spread on them.

Also, how many people like to put chips in their sandwiches?
When I was little and we would go to the beach, we'd bring sandwiches and I would intentionally put sand in mine because I liked the crunch :(

I was going to say "we call those pigs in a blanket" but then I noticed the chocolate chips in them.

By what cultural standard?

In Indonesia, insects are a common snack-food. In Japan, dairy products are rare and until recently were considered pretty odd (especially cheeses / yogurts: Question from Japanese exchange student who lived with us when I was a kid: So you're eating milk that has gone off?)

We have an Indian ex-pat in my team at work who tried western-style yoghurt (thick & sweet) and she nearly threw up.

Weird, because a lot of the "80-100%" areas on the map use goat's milk pretty frequently.

You lost me with with the addition of sand (though it does work with the name :wink:)

On the chip note however, I received a care package yesterday that contained:

Those dill pickle Pringles are awesome. I had some other dill pickle flavored potato chips a year or two ago and they were equally tasty but I'll be damned if I can find them on the shelves again.

I often make a sandwich with just chips :) I made one yesterday with some corn chips. I like a crunchy sandwich but I can't do sand. Which is why I tend to shy away from clam chowder. Now, I LOVE the taste of clam chowder, I love clams but the moment I get a grain of sand, it is ruined for me.

Suffice it to say, sand is an acquired taste.

^This for me too, thinly sliced with a little salt sprinkled on.

Lately though this has morphed into a new taste combo preference: lemon + chiles. Lays started making chips in this flavor not long ago, and they led me to create what I'm sure any sane person would consider a cullinary abomination: make a pack of chicken flavored instant ramen, add the juice of one or two lemons, sprinkle in some crushed red pepper (about a teaspoon or so), and top it off with a liberal squirt of sriracha. It's the breakfast of champions, I tell ya.

Scrapple.

I saw it on Dirty jobs a couple of weeks ago, and asked my parents (both born and raised in the country) if they had every heard of it. My dad raved about it, and said like hot dogs, just don't ask what is in it. I said I knew what was in it, and that I wanted to try it.

So, my dad went to an Amishman ~30 minutes north of here, and purchased a 5 pound loaf. Oh Man... This stuff is AMAZING. First, we took some of the Scrapple and made Scrapple Hash, Hash Browns, Over Easy Eggs, and white gravy. That was killer. This weekend, while over working on his garage, he made me a Scrapple Sandwich.

Rye Bread - Scrapple (thick slice) - Swiss Cheese - Lettuce - onion - Mayonaise - And a dash of Worcestershire sauce (added during frying). It was quite possibly the best sandwich I have had in a V.E.R.Y. Long time.

I went to a Korean barbecue place in Japan where we had all sorts of weird parts, the main two odd ones I remember were cow tongue and cow uterus. I couldn't really tell the difference between those and the other meats except that they were super chewy.


Speaking only for kosher deli tongue, it is like exceptionally fatty+marbled corned beef. it is delicious but the texture is the acquired taste part I think.

Seconded. You gotta make it right, though... I've had my plenty share of good scrapple and bad scrapple, and there's a fine line in preparation that separates it.
