Happy Valentine's Day even though it's probably going to be the 15th or later when you read this. (If that's the case just read this same post next year and that opening greeting will be relevant.) Anyway, I thought I'd do a little quick post tonight based around candy, specifically candy that you either got for or received from your significant other for the holiday. If you were alone this Valentine's Day you should have still got yourself some candy. It washes down great with lonely tears of infinite sadness.
My favorite candy to give or receive for any holiday are Lindor truffles. The milk chocolate and white chocolate are absolutely fantastic. Nothing better than cracking through the brittle chocolate shell and getting into the soft middle (like the Colts pass defense!). The Girlfriend and I gave these to each other, and we were both happy with that. However, I was feeling whimsical so I also got The Girlfriend a little V-Day Pez dispenser with chocolate, yes chocolate, Pez. I had never had this before so I asked her for a taste. In a word it was disgusting. Despite my general rule that candy always tastes good when coming out of the throat of a plastic animal I'm declaring that Pez should stick to fruit flavors only.
If you're so inclined leave some comments about your favorite candy or what you received for this Hallmarkiest of holidays.
The idea for this blog is to blog about everything I think about food and food culture. I'll tell you what I like to eat, where I like to eat it and if I thought it was good or if I thought it was crap. My thoughts about food could go anywhere. Hey if you don't like it go blog at methodicaldudereallythinksalotaboutthefoodhesgoingtoeat.blogspot.com
