The Last Unicorn




I had to destroy a giant soda stash when I moved out of my last apartment.  Most of it was bad, but there was a handful of still drinkable Pepsi Naturals.  Not delicious but drinkable.  I chugged one down and felt sick, but not too sick, so I kept one and dumped the rest.  

It's sad that this magnificent drink is lost to the ages, it was my favorite for a long while.  I still remember the panicked scramble when I found out that a discount-and-factory-seconds store had put a bunch out for sale long after the beverage was gone from regular shelves.  I filled my bags and trudged home with dozens of bottles.

Alas.

One remains in my refrigerator.

Copy and paste White Castles


Was this a creative decision or just someone being lazy?  Did the photographer only ever shoot one chicken sandwich, forcing the poor artist to copy and paste?  Are the sandwiches made of paste?  Why would you advertise awful chicken sandwiches at a place made for hamburger eating?

I have no idea why I grabbed this.  Maybe I had something funny to say about it, but I don't anymore.

Kickstart Mountain Dew and Pimento Cheese





Kickstart Mountain Dew is good, the orange is better than the fruit punch.  I can't say more than that because I haven't had one in months.  That stuff on the right is pimento cheese.  I've been trying to figure out the best way to make pimento cheese, it's tricky stuff.  The simpler the recipe the better is all I can figure out.  

I'm about to make more with fancy garlic I got from Hudson Cloves.  I never knew there were so many sorts of garlic.  Actually, using their garlic is probably a bad idea because it'll break my scientific method type practices on figuring out the best pimento cheese.  I'll wonder if this batch is good because of my cheese/mayo ratios or because I used ethically grown Triple Silvergoat Splash garlic or whatever.

Edit:  Ha ha, I used this fucking photo in a review already.  Duh.

The only photo credit I can give is that it's from Reddit.  A fantastic selection of fake Mountain Dews, especially considering that I've never seen any of them.  Maybe I've seen the "Chill" one, but maybe not.
