A Food Review - Part 2
Today at the store I discovered this new soda. It's purple and pretty so I immediately thought it was grape soda. Yum! I love grape soda!
Upon closer inspection, I see that it's called Cilgin. That means crazy in Turkish. It wasn't grape flavored either. It says Orman Meyveleri...Fruits of the Forest. Hm...I'm not quite sure what I think of that. I have a great idea! I'll buy one and let my kids taste it first. Let's see what they think!
Will taking a drink of Crazy!
This doesn't look promising. His comment...it's not bad, but I wouldn't want to drink very much of it. Ok...moving right along...
Anna Grace looks quite happy to drink a cup of Crazy. She kinda looks like she already drank a cup of Crazy. Here we go...
Oh...that is too bubbly. NO...I don't like it.
And now for Jacob. He'll eat anything. Really, he will! Once we were at this place that served beef tongue and Jacob totally knew what it was and ate it anyway.
Yum! I'm going for a second taste! Good stuff!
I also came across this decadent can of fruit juice at the store. The flavor...coconut, hazelnut, chocolate flavored orange-apple juice. Now, I had no desire to try this. None at all. But I did think it would be fun to throw in today's food review. So let's see what the kids think of this.
Anna Grace bravely went first. Before she could even take a drink she said, "This stinks!" Yes, but how does it taste?
Oh, that is the grossest thing I have ever tasted! Ugh!
And Will's reaction...
and then he did this...
and finally this. I'm thinking he doesn't care for it much. He couldn't even speak, but the sounds emitting from his lips reminded me of some an animal would make in its death throes.
Finally, Jacob tried it. He was quite hesitant after watching Will collapse on the floor and die. I was able to convince him that it didn't kill Anna Grace so he had a 50/50 chance of survival. Just take one little sip....please!
So...what do you think?
Yeah...I'm not even swallowing it. I will spew it forth from my mouth. Send the foul liquid back whence it came. Um...ok Jacob. No need to be dramatic. See...I told you it wouldn't kill you!
Then, because they were such great sports I pulled out this!
Chocolate Carnival ice cream
Will came back to life quite quickly when the words Chocolate Carnival Ice Cream were uttered. I think he was faking it. Jacob took his bowl of ice cream and ran. I think he was worried I might have something else for them to try later.
Note: Anna Grace did point out that every time we do a taste test Erica seems to vanish. Yeah...she was at a friend's house. She got lucky. This time!
