Move Over, Doublemint Gum~

Another little gem handed to me at work - a snack food of some kind.  I thought it was gum and happily took two sticks, only to find out when I trie to eat them that... it was NOT gum...!

Actually, I don't know what it was... it might have been meat... or vegetable... I couldn't tell.

Whatever it was, it was definitely in a state of highly processed bliss...

I took a bite, no real taste as far as I could tell. A bit grainy... strange texture.

I really would have liked some Doublemint!

Chinese Wing Night

Wing night in BJ Rocks!

The wings are all BBQ'd and then come in different flavors (a lot of them). Then of course you need the complimentary peanuts, veggies with some kind of vinegar oil (very tasty) and that funky tomato soup with noodle chunks in it... The salty fried chicken of my BJ is... wing night!

YenJing beer is the only choice if you have to drink Chinese beer... Tsingdao can kiss my &*% ;-)

Warning: I've heard all Chinese beer has formaldehyde in it... I do hope that isn't true. :-(

Warning (part 2): You should only eat this like once a month... it's really not healthy... but GOOD! :-P

Cute Lil' Duck.... stomach

I was given a small snack by a coworker the other day and looked at very cute little duck on the outer-wrapper. I saw all the other coworkers happily chomping away, so asked them what this was - while the external packaging may have something like a "Daffy-Duck" smiling on the front, the inside is a bit less cute...

This is duck stomach... apparently very tasty (I gave mine away) but much less cute than the image on the outer-packaging - especially when one considers the time it's spent in it's package from the factory, to the store shelf, to my work desk, all in room temperature... Heavily preserved duck stomach... hmmmm....! :-P
