A Multitude of Sins

December 4, 2008

“I’ve never given much thought to how I would die, but dying in place of all things sweet seems like a good way to go.” – Twilight

Last weekend, I went to Silver City at Metropolis and watched Twilight.  As the film started to roll, I listened to Bella’s voice and it got me thinking about death. No – not the agonizing, and emotional passing of someone, but rather the opposite – it got me thinking about Death By Chocolate.

Death By Chocolate was first established in New Zealand in 1991, and is self proclaimed “The Ultimate Dessert Destination”. And in fact, I quite agree. Death By Chocolate is a dessert lover’s dream. They serve up delicious treats that appeal to all the senses. With every plate comes inspiration and dreams.

My chocolate covered Latin Lover
The last time I went, I got myself a nice big slice of chocolate cake. Too big for me, I only finished half and still ended up having a tooth ache for weeks after. Upon visiting their website for the first time, I explored and to my delight, I found an online menu. Page after page, I feasted my eyes on sweet baked goods. I drooled over “Fudged Out” and “Devil In Disguise”. I yearned for the “Latin Lover”, and I wished to taste “A Multitude of Sins”.

Specialty coffees, wines, and liquors are served to compliment your fun and flirty dessert. So with over 30 dessert choices, and many refreshments to choose from, you can pick your poison and your coffin too!

Because everything’s better on a stick!

Admit it, you know you’ll eat anything on a stick. From corn dogs, to cotton candy, candy apples, to lollipops; everything instantly becomes better when placed on a stick. That’s just a fact of life.

The bigger, the better
Vat19.com
is a website that creates and sells curious and unusual gift ideas. And now, they have made it possible for you to enjoy a candy classic – the gummy bear – on a stick. And they didn’t just take any old gummy bear and poke a stick through it, no, they had to up the size by, one, no, 88 regular gummy bears into a single giant gummy bear.

Half a pound of gummy goodness
The Giant Gummy Bear on a Stick
itself is 4 inches tall, and weighs half a pound. It comes in three tasty flavours: blue raspberry, green apple, and red cherry. The Giant Gummy Bear includes 6 servings, with 140 calories per serving, for a total of 840 calories per Giant Gummy Bear – hey, it’s candy after all, it’s not suppose to be healthy.

Vat19.com makes a funny
It wasn’t enough for them to create the most awesome candy invention since the Twizzler, but they also had to make a hilarious, curiously awesome, Youtube video as well:

Novelty comes with a price
Each Giant Gummy Bear on a Stick is sold for $9.95 a piece, which is not cheap, considering 20oz of regular gummy bears cost between $3-6 on Shopzilla.com. But you know my motto, everything’s worth trying at least once. So go for it, splurge a little and treat yourself to a Giant Gummy Bear on a Stick. Remember, eat head first!

Trick or Treat!

November 5, 2008

I know, I know. It’s been 5 days since then, but I still can’t seem get off my Halloween buzz! For Halloween, I dressed up as Little Bo Weep with a two headed sheep (wow, that rhymes!). I sewed parts of my costume, like my apron, bonnet, and my sheep. I also paper mached a shepard’s stick but my sister snapped it in half before I was able to show it off to the world. Now what I’m curious about, my nonexistent readers, is what you dressed up as for All Hallows Eve. Didn’t dress up? Then tell me about your adventure into the dark, spooky, and, might I add, rainy night.

Candy, candy, and more candy! That’s what Halloween’s all about, or at least that’s what it’s about in my house. I mean, who can resist those ooey gooey, yummy, gummy, chocolaty, sugary delights? I know I can’t, and this is my loot for this year:

Okay, so perhaps I didn’t go trick or treating, but at least I took advantage of post-Halloween candy sales! I couldn’t believe my eyes as I walked down aisle after aisle of candies and chocolates, most of which were selling for only a dollar a package! Yessiree, this is definetly the best holiday of the year.

I filled up my basket with 4 packages of Hershey’s Cookies and Cream, 3 packages of Oh Henry!, 2 packages of KitKat bars, 1 package of Reese, 1 package of Coffee Crisp, and 3 packages of chocolate pumpkins, for a total of $15. $15 people, $15!! I don’t know if I’ve stressed the fact enough, but you should, absolutely, take advantage of these sales. They do, afterall, only come once a year.
