Early Expiration

A lot of foods have expiration dates on them to tell you the last sell or use by date. Most of the time we find food buried in our fridge that is long past expiration.

One thing you will rarely see past expiration is milk. In fact, I stop drinking milk at least two days before the date on the carton – earlier if it’s been in the fridge for a week. However, I will leave it in the fridge until the expiration date just in case my wife Linda wants it.

I don’t really drink milk on its own. I either put it in cereal or add chocolate syrup to make chocolate milk. Even then, my milk needs to be as fresh as possible.


College Experimentation

Back in college I experimented with some of the foods I like to see if I could come up with something new that I liked. I have a major sweet tooth so Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup was a part of those experiments. Along with discovering the Resses’s Peanut Butter Dog, I stumbled upon the Chocolate Fluffer-nutter. I would spread peanut butter on one slice, and Fluff on the other. Then I would pour a small amount of chocolate syrup and spread it over the Fluff side.

I’d love to hear about any strange but tasty food you’ve tried and what you think of my Chocolate Fluffer-nutter.

A Strange Concoction

As a fussy eater, it’s sometimes a little tiring eating basically the same things over and over. To deal with that, when I was younger I would sometimes try mixing things I did like together in new and unusual ways. Most of the time, the result wasn’t nearly as good as I’d hoped.

I did come up with one that was surprisingly good. I took a hotdog roll and spread peanut butter on it. Then I added a hotdog. If that isn’t strange enough for you, I then poured Hershey’s chocolate syrup over the hotdog. I affectionately referred to this as the Reese’s Peanut Butter Dog.  Unfortunately, they’re not really good for you so I’ve pretty much taken these out of my diet.

I’ve only managed to convince one friend to try one and he thought it was interesting. If any of you are daring enough to try it, let me know what you think of it.
