Stories that don’t quite fit any category. Too small to deserve their own post, interesting, but not that interesting . Curiosities, for if you’re bored.
My wife and I use many of their spices. She got a kick out of the e-mail they sent out related to that.
If I can find it, I’ll post a screenshot of the recipe for Candle Cakes from one of their catalogs that is hard to imagine was published without any self-awareness.
Found it, it was Candle Salad.
Turns out, this has been a thing for a while, it seems:
If there is subtext, it is old subtext, which might actually be better.

Looks more like a Candaules salad.
I see what they did there.
As usual, I am left wondering if the author a) still thinks Gen X are “young people” or b) if they even remember there ever was a Gen X. Every Gen Xer I know can relate to most of this (unless they’re a conservative, and then, you know). I also don’t know any Boomers who would tell a younger person “you don’t know how good you have it” (again, unless they are conservatives).
The Venom movie has its own limeade now. Who doesn’t want to drink a symbiotic parasite?
Yeah, this Boomer is constantly telling young people how much harder they have it now. The only upside is that it IS somewhat safer to be a minority (of any type) now than it was when I was growing up…but not by much.
How did they miss this tie-in?
Perhaps Snapple saw the movie and decided they would pass.
man, i wish i could ride like this.
…so long as you don’t have to go uphill.
(Idea: run rope tows along sidewalls of all major streets.)
A comment on that:
Yup. I’ve been in s bus in Montreal in the middle of the summer, and not been sure it was going to make it to the top.
locking them in schools…
