S&Ms

This just came up:
weaselmom and I have a favorite sweet snack, which we call S&Ms. Skittles and M&Ms. You mix them together (note how they feel the same...) and then eat them in handfuls in a dark movie theater. It's all about the surprise taste combination - you never know what you're going to get.

Try it some time. If you don't, think about why not.

That is all,
Chris

You also claim to enjoy sausages, wrapped in chocolate chip pancakes, and covered with maple syrup. Sorry, I'm not taking your food advice on this one.

And what's with that supposed "American favorite" of bacon waffles, drenched in maple syrup. Do we actually know anyone who likes it? Blecch.

You don't dig chocolate? Good madame, you really must try some quality truffles or something! I can see not liking typical American wax-choco-food (tm), but a nice milk or dark chocolate? Mmmmm....

Okay, I'm chiming in on the plus side here, cause that actually sounds good. I like skittles, M&M's & moovies...sos I'll give it a gogo and see what comes of it.

Like dipping things in ranch...because you just never know when there's going to be a party in your mouth.

Peaceout.

Because:

M&M's = good
Skittles = bad
combo = *shudder*

Oh, this made me howl with laughter! I introduced them to my office, and the reaction was interesting. People rebelled at first and tried to pick out JUST Skittles or M&Ms. But I told them no, they would take what they were given, like it, and beg for more--that's why we call 'em S&Ms: some people think they're sheer torture.

My boss wasn't thrilled when he zoomed past on his way to a meeting, blurted out, "Can I have some? I'm late for a meeting and didn't get lunch!" and popped a handful in his mouth without waiting for an answer. A second later he came pelting back down the hall going "Oh my GOD! What IS that???" So in the interests of a positive performance evaluation this year, my boss is allowed to pick out only what he wants. But nobody else. Most people have gotten used to it now, and one guy gets all sad-faced when the bowl is empty and says, "No more crackberries?"

So to all you doubters, you don't know what you're missing. But fine, that just means more for me and Chris! :-P

You're absolutely right, the combination is sheer torture!
However, I won't take what I was given, like it, and then beg for more...yuck!

(I love you even though you like 'em).

S&Ms? It sounds experimenty. Be careful -- it's a slippery slope. Next you'll be trading vending machine snacks through a hole in the wall of Rest Area facilities.

Wow, I wonder if WM and I started a trend? She distributed them first at Norwescon, oh, 9 years ago or so.
