  1. Are they going to update their packaging to reflect this change?(Apparently if you hit it on the 42 it comes right out!)

    The glory of fast food past

    Like Haley's Comet, I await the return of the Burger King Rodeo Burger.

    Curly Fries - anyone remember these?

    I'm sure it's a product of my troubled upbriging, but if the end result of this mad project doesn't taste like Ore-Ida, they won't be curly fries. The secret is ice crystals.

    Homemade cherry vodka

    I did the same thing with some sour cherries (batch of bourbon as well), but I pitted mine and left it for about two weeks in a Mason jar of Smirnoff 80. Very tasty as a highball with ginger ale. Tasted a cherry and wished I hadden't, though. Luckylies: I wouldn't go too super cheap with it. You'll just end up with cherry flavoured crap. No running it through a Britta, either.
  5. Good timing! I'm doing a vanilla vodka (seems safe) and I'm not sure if I've let it go long enough. It's sat for a week but still doesn't taste that good. Should I let it go longer? Could be I need to use better vodka...using Smirnoff, just as I did in my failed attempts last year (chile and citrus).
  6. Most of these sound more like 'crappy renditions' than 'misrepresentations'.
  7. Add an 'or else' and it's perfect.

    1934 Lafit Rothschild

    Can't find this with a search. Probably got pulled for not including the magic words "Bottle is a collectable. Any incidental contents not meant to be consumed."

    Skorppio Vodka: Feel the Sting

    Yep. We had a bottle of this stuff at a party once. Nothing special. Good party gimmick.
  10. Hey, what's rum without Coke?

    3/14 is National Pi Day

    I dunno, switch to European notation and call me on 22/7.
  12. From the "I guess you could, but...." files, I subject you to: Not The Dogsled 3/4 oz Yukon Jack 3/4 oz Canadian Club 1/2 oz Gran Gala 1/2 oz Lemon juice Alright, it was supposed to be entirely Yukon Jack, right? No, wait...come back! Thank you...And be called The Dogsled (It's like a sidecar, you see? See??). But I didn't have as much Yukon Jack as I thought (it's popular at parties, you see. LATE into parties, mind, but still....popular), so I was like "I need something else that's Canadian or the drink won't be thematically sound anymore!" Long story short...this isn't bad! Little sweet, little sour (too much lemon). More Yukon Jack, less on the Gran Gala. Maybe on the rocks with soda instead of up. I give it 6.5 stars out of a possible 10.75. Seriously, it was alright! --Matt May Your Drinks Be, If Nothing Else, Basically Thematically Sound
  13. Wow, square bagels not entirely unlike those found at Cosi! --Matt, Who doesn't plan to buy either product At least until they stop calling them "Squagels"

    Michel Richard's Citronelle

    I knew you'd only hurt me in the end.... Man, if there's one thing I love, it's that lobster burger.
