The kids and I decided to do a special holiday edition taste test. Actually I decided to force the kids to participate, because when they heard what I was going to make them taste they were not excited.
First up we have eggnog. Now I don't think the kids would have minded trying eggnog if they hadn't seen a video of an eggnog drinking contest where the participants threw up after drinking it. I reminded them that the contest participants drank half a gallon of eggnog before they threw up. I was only asking them to take a few sips!
Erica finally agreed to go first. Hm...this smells an awful lot like paint...
I don't want to drink it!
Come on...just one little sip!
You could hold your nose while you drink it.
Fine. One sip.
Hm. What is that flavor?
Plants. It tastes like plants to me.
Jacob smelled it before he took a sip, too.
Yuck. That smells gross!
Yet he takes a drink of it anyway. What a good boy that Jacob is!
That's not terrible. I mean I don't really like it, but I could drink it if I had to.
Aw, is it my turn already? Ok.
But I'm holding my breath while I taste it!
Oooo...gross. Yuck. (And here is where I don't tell you that she was mad. Like really mad. Like there were tears underneath those hands, because I "made" her try it.)
Um. No...I'm not trying it now. Not after Anna Grace cried!
Oh yes you are! Everyone else tried it you have to at least take a little sip!
That tastes like paint. Really. I think I just drank paint!
Next up we have Yoo-hoo chocolate drink. What? You don't drink Yoo-hoos during the holidays? Well, ok, I guess technically it isn't a holiday drink, but I thought it would make a great edition to our taste test since my kids had never tried it.
So...what do you think?
That tastes just like watery chocolate milk. Yuck.
Ok...down the hatch.
Well it's very watery. Chocolaty water. Nope...I don't like it.
Let me try it.
That was really good! I like it!
No. I am still mad. I am so mad that I am not talking to you or even looking at you.
Please...just one sip. Ok, fine, but I am still not looking at you.
This just tastes like water with a little bit of chocolate milk powder mixed in. I can't believe you made me taste this.
Aw...come on AG...look at me.
If looks could kill...
