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!Continue reading “Halloween 2023: October 7ᵗʰ – Chris’s Lost Halloween Schichttorte”
Because of their name, ghost peppers have become a default staple of Halloween novelty foods. I loves me some spice, so that’s just fine with me. But what kind of idiot would pay for soup merchandise that has nothing to do with Halloween and was originally given away for free, just because it has the word “ghost” on the box? I mean, who would do that? Oh, yeah, me. That’s who.Continue reading “Halloween 2023: October 2ⁿᵈ – Chris Loves The Campbell’s Chunky Ghost Pepper Chicken Noodle Soup Cool Off Kit”
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. I would describe the flavor as 75% vanilla shake, 22% mixed berry blend, and 3% blueberry. 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.
You’ll taste a distant strawberry cream flavor as long as you keep this stuff moving over your tongue, but the instant that motion stops you will realize what you purchased was a whole case of carbonated extra-strength cherry cough syrup.
If there’s one thing I’m known for, it’s being a stickler for old world traditions. And if there’s a second thing I’m known for, it’s my faithful consumption of the foods one is expected to eat on the feast days of Catholic saints. But if there’s a third thing I’m known for, something deeply, intrinsically me, it would almost certainly be lying, ’cause I don’t do any of that other shit. Let me show you how we do St. Patty’s Day, Cincinnati style. Also, I created another holiday cocktail you can only find here at The Sci-Fi Guys.
