I’ve never claimed to have a refined palette. I don’t need fancy food. I eat when I’m hungry…or bored…or stressed…but not because I crave food. Even when I eat, I have very low expectations – no one is asking me where I want to go to dinner in a group setting! So with that disclaimer – let me share two outrageous things I tried this week- that I know classifies me as a child!
The first is Cotton Candy Captain Crunch. I’m ashamed to admit I really do love captain crunch (even though it tears up the roof of my mouth!) and when I was at the store this week and saw this box – I thought how perfect is this – Combining my love for cotton candy everything and captain crunch. I ended up with two boxes, one for Briggs’ birthday bucket and one for myself. It was far better than I expected and yes I will buy it again.
The second thing I know I’m going to get heat for is liking peeps. Yes, I know there are cotton candy peeps and yes I think they’re wonderful. But these caught my attention while shopping with Hunter and we decided to give them a try. I know if I use the word “delicious”, I will be mocked. But they were beyond tasty, perhaps my favorite peeps so far. Word on the street is there is also a hot tamale version which I’m sure I’d love as well and I’ve been trying to track them down.
I (and I’m LOTS older than you!) will come alongside you and boldly say that I also LOVE Cap’n Crunch AND Peeps! I haven’t seen the cotton candy CC, but I may have to look for it!
I’m a pretty basic Peep lover–yellow or white are my favorite (I think the pink, purple, blue, etc taste like medicine!) and I’m not a big fan of sour flavors, but I’m glad you enjoyed them!
