On New Year’s Eve, salads, fried chicken, herring under a fur coat, mandarins, champagne, wine, cognac... But I haven't tasted any food since I got Covid. 😪

Anything, but English food. Tired of serving it at work.

Forgot to mention, around Christmas we had a fairly massive amount of "Texas trash", a holiday tradition in our Texan boyfriend's family. It was incredibly tasty and addictive. He said if we hadn't been here, he would still have made the same amount and eaten it all himself (as he didn't go back to Texas this time in light of the pandemic), which seems insane. :P

I think you might have! Are they sort of spherical poffertjes? :D
What's inside?
Aebleskiver is the Viking version, while poffertjes are apparently Catholic in origin. :awesome: Some people add fillings, but I like to make them plain with toppings on the side: fruit, jam, maple syrup, powdered sugar, etc. The center is just airy dough.

Solvang is definitely the place to try them in California. You need a special pan, and cast iron is best. You can sometimes find them at 2nd hand stores. Youtube has good videos for the technique.

Why do people like Galaxy chocolate? (Who does, anyway?)

I'm eating some Galaxy truffles right now that looked delicious in the picture on the box, but they're really quite boring. Addictive of course, but nothing special. Nothing like Lindt.

IKR? They're so disappointing! I don't even think they're addictive.

Galaxy is delicious though.

Saying that I'm aware that I count Bounties as one of my favourite chocolate bars which according to most people renders my opinion less than worthless. :P

Delicious? What exactly is wrong with you? :crazy:

Bounty isn't terrible. But can anyone really say Galaxy even begins to approach Lindt? It's not as bad as Hershey's, but... why would anyone buy it, other than being tricked by markdowns and deceptive pictures on boxes (as in the case of my illustrious husband)? I just don't get it.

I mean I haven't ever thought to rank quality of chocolate. Despite the size of me, I honestly don't really eat all that much chocolate in and of itself.

I had to look up what Galaxy chocolate was. It is apparently the same as Dove chocolate in the U.S., which for some reason is more heavily marketed toward women.

I don’t care for grocery store chocolate. I treat myself to “gourmet” chocolates a few times a year, if I am craving it.

I lost my liking for brownies after eating an edible where the THC was massive in I t... didn’t like the high and I got really paranoid, couldn’t walk, and threw up my McDonald’s. Never again. Don’t like brownies now.

I swear, these things are such garbage, I have half a mind to just throw the rest of them in the bin instead of eating them. They don't seem worth all the sugar that's in them. :runaway:

But throwing them away would be wasteful. You must eat them all for the good of the planet.

I'm not that keen on Galaxy anymore. I find it quite cloying. Lindt even more so, tastes a bit sickly sweet for me. Don't eat that much chocolate, but I generally prefer a little bit darker chocolate these days. Cadbury's Bournville is alright. Dark chocolate bounty is surprisingly okay.

OutsideIn wrote:[Galaxy] is apparently the same as Dove chocolate in the U.S., which for some reason is more heavily marketed toward women.

Hmm. Yeah, now that you mention it, I seem to remember advertisements for Galaxy over here that were very clearly coded towards women.

On the other hand, we also have Cadbury's "Yorkie" chocolate, which is marketed towards men in the most unsubtle of ways (Tagline is literally "It's not for girls"). Although, I think I remember them producing a different Yorkie bar with a biscuit element and a pink wrapper, which I much preferred. Was utterly emasculated. :P

Gendered chocolate... Man... where did we go wrong? :lol:

Yes. Hershey's is truly awful. Forget infrastructure and inequality, America; your political priority should be updating your chocolate recipe. There is no need for chocolate to taste this bad.

What is Hershey's? I assume that's a degenerate America-only form of chocolate because I don't think I've ever seen it sold anywhere.

US chocolate producer. You can get it in the American import section in larger supermarkets, if you're so inclined.

I’ve had chocolate from the UK... forgot the name of it but it’s delicious and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t like chocolate.
