Halloween 2023: October 7ᵗʰ – Chris’s Lost Halloween Schichttorte

Back in 2019, I created a spooky schichttorte for my cousins to enjoy on Halloween. The very next day I backed up the photos to an old flash drive, then lost the drive. I wrote last year that the images were lost, presuming them to be gone forever. But I recently uncovered the drive, so I’m posting them here before I lose them again. Click the pic to see my lost Halloween schichttorte!

Halloween 2023: October 2ⁿᵈ – Chris Loves The Campbell’s Chunky Ghost Pepper Chicken Noodle Soup Cool Off Kit

Happy Birthday, Grimace

After all the fuss I made about Uncle O’Grimacey, it seemed hypocritical to let a celebration of Grimace slide by without at least trying the new beverage they crafted for him. And I’m glad I did, because this is delicious. People have said they think this is grape, but I think that’s a color-taste association response to the purple. I detected no grape in this this.

Again, the blueberry might be my own color-taste association influencing my judgment, but whatever the case, this shit is tasty. I’m glad I got a small, because it’s pretty sweet. But not unpleasantly so. I’d absolutely drink this again – 8.5 out of 10.
