flavor twists

anonymous asked:

So, out of curiosity, what exactly are moffios?

Sugar bombs which are only considered cereal because they’re marketed that way. The grain in them is only there to hold the sweet stuff together and keep it from completely dissolving into the milk. They come in “flavors,” including tropical twist, chunks-o-chocolate, and super sour stars (glow-in-the-dark!), but Torako favors the original. Bentley maintains (from his limited experience) that there cannot be any discernible difference in taste between these varieties because the pure saccharine hit to the tastebuds would surely override anything else. 

They’re most popular with college kids and young adults who, upon attaining freedom from parental oversight, feel free to indulge in all the sugary goodness they maybe weren’t allowed very often (if at all) as kids.

Sometimes there are limited edition pop-culture flavor or marketing variants. The one time they came out with an Alcor the Dreambender blend (demonically delicious), Torako ate nothing but moffios for breakfast for months.

Had some pre-canon / AU thoughts floating around that deserve to be shared.

As children:

–Seto and Joey are the kids who use paper towel tubes / fallen tree limbs in a sword fight. Seto gets really animated and starts reciting excerpts from Knights of the Round Table. Joey tells him to “skip to da dragon already!”

–On the way back from the beach, Joey uses pocket change to buy Serenity an ice cream cone. While holding his hand she turns around to the couple behind her and says: “My brother and I have our own ice cream flavor.” “Really, which one?”“Twist, he gets vanilla and I get chocolate.” Joey meant for her to have the whole thing but can’t break the grin while they eat their respective sides with spoons.

–Mokuba going through a firefighter phase and Seto salvaging discarded stuffed animals at the orphanage for him to “rescue” from trees. Later in life, Mokuba jokingly blames his disappointing early childhood on lack of quicksand and felines in distress.

–Tea is the undisputed dodgeball champion and uses her title to run an elaborate, undercover trade ring at the elementary school. Want to prove a point to your big mouth friend, sure, you can be on my winning team…that’ll cost you two pudding cups and four green crayons. She plans to use the green crayons in art class. They break first. They always break first. Green is a curse.

–Tristan first meets Tea during one such negotiation, ends up with free team passes for the rest of the year in exchange for a Dirty Dancing poster he snuck from his Mom’s closet. She wasn’t allowed to watch it as a kid and used to make up the plot of the movie during recess while he rolled his eyes because he promised not to tell what really happens.

A thought occurs to me after that last write-up. Lark, being the free-spirited sort, follows rules only so far as they benefit him. After a point he veers hard and goes his own way.

Same applies for his Firebending style. He learned the traditional stuff, but just had to make it his own with his personal twist and flavor.

So Lark’s Firebending is a mix of Chaquan kung fu and acrobatic swing dancing. :3c

could you direct me to some good smoking herbal blends and maybe some herbal teas? thank you 💫💞

Absolu-Tea-ly :) 

Use a nice pinch your natural herbal smoking mix in a rolling paper, pipe, or vaporizer. You can even use the combination as a Tea to sip. 

~ 3 parts Raspberry Leaf or You could even do one third of Damiana for a little more of a relaxing effect (this will be your base - Your base should be something that is smooth, has body, and burns well)

~2 parts Uva Ursi and Mugwort

~½ to 1 part Peppermint or Spearmint for a flavorful twist


Mix it all together, and you’re done!

Try it out!

The Tropical Twist flavor of Trident makes me so nostalgic. I chew it now and I swear I'm like back in high school. The gum you like is going to come back in style

I've been asked to decide between D&D 4e and Pathfinder. I don't know too much about either, because I usually play Call of Cthulhu and WoD, so which do you prefer?

Personally, this mod is going to tell you Pathfinder. But 4e simply doesn’t exist my in world and I have also never played Pathfinder. Why am I answering this? Because I know a few facts all the same.

Pathfinder was the lovechild created when Wizard’s created 4e. It seems as if you are either in “I love 4e!” or “4e is trash”. 4e was created in an attempt to compete with massive multiplayer online games. It took World of Warcraft and made it a tabletop. What may have been a smart idea was a failed concept. Why play a tabletop with people when you can wear no pants, not be judged for not showering because you’ve been raiding, and best of all not interacting with real people for an extended period of time? On the pendulum of Fighting and Roleplaying, 4e swung hard to Fighting. 4e is a great beginner edition to test the waters and see if you, or your group of friends, would be interested in the sort of nerdom.

Now back to Pathfinder. Pathfinder, as I understand it, is what 4e should have been after 3.5e. It is often called 3.75 rules/edition (at least where I’m from). 3.5 is amazing but it is awfully dense with rules and some aspects are pretty over powered or even under powered. Pathfinder improved upon 3.5e while adding it’s own flavor and twist. It is fairly balanced in regards of Battling and Roleplaying. It will really depend on who your GM is and what aspects your group likes more.

This is just one humble opinion mind you. People who love 4e have their reasons and I think that is awesome. It’s just not this mod's scene.


Founders “Breakfast Stout”

95 A

Breakfast Stout is a seasonal Imperial Stout. Release starts in September, then departs on new year’s day. This is brewed with a delicious blend of oats, imported chocolate, Sumatra and Kona coffee beans. Aromas are dominated an authentic display of coffee, underscored by dark chocolate, cocoa powder, charred barley, and a faint bitter note.

The palate starts with a mouth full of malts, beginning with robust flavors of dark chocolate that flow into a drier body of cocoa powder. A sweet kiss of caramel rises up from the middle. Hops stir up an abrupt bitterness, which complement the roasted concept without bringing many distracting flavors afterward. Coffee takes control of the back-end with some interesting, genuine bean character. At this point, details of oatmeal and other cereal grains create a creamy finish, where devil’s food comes to mind. The mouthfeel brings a smooth, well-rounded body carrying supportive carbonation. Chewy, but not too thick.

This is clearly a coffee-driven Stout. I believe its success is rooted in the marriage of bitter and sweet components, all wrapped up in a balanced package…delicious simplicity with just enough complexity. Bold malt flavors harmonize with dull hop bitterness to rule over the meek sweetness. ABV comes in at a respectable rate, without reaching the 9% range where the alcohol starts to negatively impact the palate. I seriously advise you drink this lukewarm in order to appreciate its full potential. Breakfast Stout is yet another fine, well-balanced brew from Founders. I continually look forward to this every year, and I highly recommend it!

12. Frost each cupcake with an equal amount of the buttercream before serving.

The Witch’s Son, pt 2


Pastel genderfluid!Eren

pt 1

In which the witch herself enjoys the broody bookkeeper more than she lets on. 

Opening this shop was perhaps the best thing Eren’s done in years.

Aside from finally clearing out her gross overly masculine teen boy clothes. That had been a good day. Her father wasn’t too happy with her burning them in the yard but her mother had gotten the gasoline and dug the fire pit herself, so even the griping of Grisha Jaeger didn’t do much to ruin the day.

She breathes in the crisp air, taking a sip of her coffee and reveling in the pumpkin spice flavor. Her dress twists and turns with each step, lace bouncing as legging-clad limbs take her closer and closer to her destination. Under her pink fall coat she feels butterflies flutter in her stomach and if the trees happen to shake as she passes, she says nothing.

Since my sister, Natali, and I were little girls, my mother and father made sure the kitchen was the centerpiece of our household. We had dinner as family every night and ate delicious cookbookitalian-style meals that were made with love from recipes that had been passed down for generations on both sides of my family. Recipes from ancestors in Naso – a town in Messina Province of Sicily – Santa Lucia and Venice live on through my family, each with its own distinct twist in flavor. The uniqueness of this cookbook and our family restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, lies in the influence of the immigration of our families from Italy through Ellis Island to New Jersey (where my father was raised) and West Virginia (where my mother was raised).

The smell, every Sunday, of a pot of fresh “gravy,” as we would call it instead of “tomato sauce,” is one of the fondest memories I have from my childhood. I recall the smell of roasting sausages as they were dropped delicately into a slowly simmering 9-12 hour sauce. I remember the smile as my butter knife snapped open the outer layer and the juices filled my plate, sopped up by fresh pasta and followed by a crispy chopped salad made by my mother. Red wine that my father and grandfather Giuseppe made in our laundry room in the basement, sifted through cheesecloth as it was poured for everyone at the table.

We would say a prayer and then eat as a family. We ended each prayer in memory of my father’s sister, Joanne, whose name has become the symbol both of our family’s majestic accomplishments and of our losses along the way. We always knew there was a plate at the table missing, and we ask that when you prepare these traditional family dishes you honor the memory of those you love and those you’ve lost, and cook with the intention of strengthening the bonds of family and friendship in the place us Italians think is best: The Kitchen.

Love, Stefani Joanne Germanotta
