I am Not Sure What This is

I hoped that Oikos Crunch in Lemon Shortbread yogurt would be something I would like.   I wanted to like Oikos Crunch in Lemon Shortbread.  After all, like Sansa - lemon cake is my favorite.  Well, actually shortbread is my favorite and lemon bars are my favorite, and I don't recall ever having lemon cake, but close enough, and even if they weren't, do you think I could really resist a Game of Thrones quote?  

But I am sorry to report that I am not sure this is actually counts as yogurt.  It appears to have started as yogurt.  But then it was drowned in sugar and lemon flavor.  So it didn't seem particularly yogurty.  Or healthy, which is why most people eat yogurt to begin with.  And then I was asked to cover it up with even more sugary cookie bits.  

But the worst part is that the topping includes a lot of white chocolate.  I do not care for white chocolate, WHICH IS NOT  REAL CHOCOLATE.  

So for breakfast I had this things that tasted more like dessert, and a dessert that just tasted mostly of sugar.  What does this make this?  

I think I will go make my own yogurt, and my own granola now.

I Should Make Shortbread Again

Out of my household, I think I am alone in my love of anything made predominantly out of butter.

Garbage Plate

I found this photo of a garbage plate in my Blogger drafts dated early 2013, so it's been about two years since Foodgoat has made a garbage plate.

I think it's a kid-friendly meal.  There's pasta.  There's melted cheese.  I think it could be a win with the Goatlings.

The older Goatling probably had it before, and I have no recollection if she liked it or not, though that may not stop from addressing any reluctance to try the Garbage Plate with the (oft-used) phrase, "You had it before!  And you liked it!  Really!"  Though the kids never seem to believe me when I tell them they USED to like it, and it doesn't seem to make any impact on whether they like it NOW.

But, I like it, I've always liked it, and I'm confidant I'll like it again, so let's make it!

Berry Flavored Oreos: A Range of Reactions

We bought Berry Flavored Oreos.

Here are the responses:

  • Child 1 (the one who picked it out):  Gagged immediately and refused to take another bite.
  • Adult 1: Thought it tasted just okay.  Ate one more.  And then another.  By which time it did not taste fine, at all.
  • Adult 2: Thought it tasted better than expected.  Knew enough to not eat any more.
  • Child 2: Said it was yummy and kept eating them until I had to put the package away and distract her with My Little Pony videos.
