Extreme snack food, overwhelm 

Birthday cake doughnut ice cream sandwich is exactly the sort of food that is incredible on the first bite: Yes, please! Put all of these things together, a thousand sugared angels sing that every viral food video content farm was right.

Third bite: Complete despair, there is no nuance; just joyless immersion in fake vanilla. I am too old for this, this is my sugar limit for the day, will the smell of birthday cake ever leave my car?

@erinbee this reminds me of when i tried fried oreos

the excitement turned to regret real fast. that stuff made me feel like hot garbage faster than any other food i've since tried

@xyzzy Fried Oreos sound like the peak of novelty food. Did the cookie even get soft inside?

Extreme snack food, overwhelm 

@erinbee oh yeah, it was soft

@erinbee :ohno: I hate that! It’s why I make myself pass up just about every amazing sounding candy bar mashup ice cream I see, they all look amazing but there are like two full size candy bars in every scoop and I am sadly not 12 anymore

@ItsTheManOnTheMoon Ha! Speaking of being a kid, I ended up handing off the rest of it to my 10 year old who was thrilled to have seconds.

@erinbee :flan_think:​ ice cream petit fours

re: Extreme snack food, overwhelm 

@pamela Ice cream doughnut holes would be ideal

re: Extreme snack food, overwhelm 

@erinbee ooooh

@erinbee Happy occasion for CNE-style food, whatever it is!

Yeah that looks like one bite is enough then pass it off to a sugar/fat loving creature who isn’t big on nuance.

@thatdawnperson The PNE can't touch the CNE's wild junk food, imho. (These are from a local ice cream shop in Vancouver, and now I'm wondering if they're trying to fill the summer festival food void.)

I ended up giving most of it to my 10 year old, who was thrilled to be getting more ice cream.

re: Extreme snack food, overwhelm 

@erinbee Something like that should be bite-sized imo

re: Extreme snack food, overwhelm 

@pagrus Yes! Doughnut holes would be perfect.

re: Extreme snack food, overwhelm 

@erinbee Yes! I see now that has been covered already. The birthday cake flavor is super evocative but I don't know if I need more than a taste every few years

re: Extreme snack food, overwhelm 

@pagrus Yeah, I'm more about the smell and aesthetic of the rainbow sprinkles than actually eating a cake. Maybe I just need a cute candle every once in a while 😆

Fabulous colors, though. It needs to be a costume or at least a po-po-mo Easter bonnet, not a foodstuff.

@xenophora Oooh, or a hat like this:

There you go again: looking into my dreams. :D
