New Things That Are Good

Not much new over here, but I have sampled or read of some new things that are good....

First, the Coffee Toffee Twisted Frosty, at Wendy's. No, I should not be eating stuff like this, but I read on AOL's write-up of the best offerings in fast foods that the twisted frosty is just FULL of mix-ins. In Wendy's words:

"We start with our irresistible, real dairy Frosty and add coffee syrup made with real-brewed coffee. Then we mix in chocolate-covered toffee candy made in old-fashioned copper kettles to create a rich, indulgent treat."

It is unbelievable. You can choose between a chocolate and vanilla frosty, and chocolate is the only way to go. I had my heart set on one today, and following the best dieting advice, I had only the frosty for lunch. Why bother with the nutritious stuff when this is all you want? Oh, is it good.

And I happened to read in today's paper about a new offering by Heinz catsup - it's a new container kind of like the container little packages of butter come in. So you can DIP the fries right in the new catsup container. And it has more catsup in it than those squeeze things that take way too much time when you're anxious to dig into those fries as soon as you get home. Hell, you can now dip them right in the car.

And for those of you who like junk food TV, it's Celebrity Rehab. I must confess to a liking for junk food TV. I make fun of my husband for watching Cops, but then I started to get into Real Housewives. It's an embarrassing habit, but I like to do some relaxing on Saturdays, and that includes taking an hour to watch that show. As I watch it, I think I can't believe I'm wasting my time watching it. But then this week we just discovered Celebrity Rehab. Heidi Fleiss is in it. My god, what happened to her lips? She must have OD'd on the lip injection and she looks terrible, but it's junk TV at its best.

You're making me hungry over here!

Taking a broom to my bushes would be a good idea if the snow came down slowly, but we were getting 2 to 3 inches an hour at one point, and it went on all night long so by the time I woke up, huge leyland cypress trees were lying on the ground-covered. After the thaw, I'll know if they've survived;-)

I'm not big on coffee, but I know this could be something that would really get to Rick. If they had a flavor other than coffee, I'd be in line because you make it sound SO good!

You're SO right about Heidi Fleiss!

Dippable ketchup containers - file under what took them so long to figure that out! said...

We all have our vices, don't we? That Frosty looks damn good.

I like some junk tv too. I like millionaire matchmaker, the bechelor, and the really trashy meet my parents! bubble gum for the brain. We all need to veg out sometimes!

Thanks for stopping by my blog; hope you'll come by often.

That Frosty really does look good. I'm not a big fast food french fry eater but when I do I'm gonna miss those miserable little catsup packets.

Oh man. I'm trying to read this and watch Lost and I thought you said the ketchup comes in tubs like they use for butter. I imagined these big ole tubs of ketchup that you would have to use over and over again and I thought that was pretty gross and couldn't believe you liked the idea.

Little containers. Duh. Good idea.
