Kit Kat orange & creme

a NYCE exclusive! no applause necessary. really. stop. i mean it.

Hot-hot-hot Kit-Kat spinoff alert! CVS has ‘em NOW: orange & crème Kit Kats. It's a limited edition with an orangey cream coating (which ech consists mostly of artery-clogging palm kernel oil, but let’s not bogue our new-kit-kat-spinoff high, shall we). Orange Kit Kats are old news in Europe, but theirs is more sophisticated, w/ la-dee-da Seville and/or blood orange fillings. Guess they hadda dumb it down for Americans (outsida the U.S., Kit Kat=Nestle; but here it's Hershey. weird, eh). The Kit Kat Thing is off the hook: wild spinoffs we can’t get and a Kit-Kat cult seen on candy blogs everywhere. In the U.S.: we briefly got mint Kit Kats last Xmas; a limited-edition triple choc came out in January (never saw that, tsk); and white choc graduated from limited-> year-round product. so much to say about Kit Kat!

Signing in to comment is nigh impossible now. but tried to send you message that European Deli on Forest Lane at Central sells cake-size sheets of ice cream cone-like wafers. Said to be especially popular with the Yugoslavians. Bet a talented pastry chef like you could come up with some creative KitKat alternatives using them.

Also, visit the deli for meats imported from Chicago, housemade pirogi and much more.

GRRR! thanks for feedback re: signing in. how anNOYing, especially since i specified that "anyone" (not just a registered user) should be able to post comments. i've gone in and re-hit that button - i hope it works this time. perhaps you can give it a try and see if i fixed it properly or if i need to raise a blogspot ruckus. meanwhile thanks for great NYCE tips! i'm on them!!!

Thinking about wafers led, naturally, to thinking about the great octopus chicharon thing Fiesta on Ross Avenue makes on weekends. These chicharons are amazing, puffy 10-inch squares that are sooo crunchy but tender. My daughter thinks they're natural, but I find it hard to believe that one comes from a single pork rind. Anyway, they slather one with sour cream, chopped lettuce, pico de gallo, cold steamed octopus and then drizzle it with hot, hot sauce. You cry with pain and joy when you eat one. They are cheap, too, a couple of bucks or so. I don't know the name for these things, but they are sold at the little stand set up just inside the entrace to the store. (Don't know what you did to the comment command, but now it won't take my Ms. Ery tag so this reads anonymous. But you know who I am.)

well i wasn't sure about Ms.Ery's identity but marc (who is the indian scout of NYCE) played watson to my holmes and we pieced it out together ... the estimable food prowess, the inclination towards fabulously cool/exotic things, the east dallas savvy, the mention of a mystery daughter... meanwhile i am dying to visit that European Deli xoxo

Can I post as Mr.E? get it? ha.

abba zabba sour apple? yuck. maybe you gotta be <16 to really appreciate such a flavor. its cousin, the Uno bar, didn't have good luck with ITS spin-off: "The Mint Flavored U-No bars have been discontinued." sob!

Mr. E is so clever, it deserves a smiley-face emoticon but i don't have one right now. i also thought of Mr. E. Us, but that's really just piling on to something that was perfect to begin with. Ms.Ery says she wants company; maybe the two of you could meet up somewhere

as for the anonymous Ms.Ery, if she wants to post comments under a different identity, i think she can do so by hitting "other" and filling in any darn name she wants (but i warn you, i know for a fact that "James Beard" is d-e-a-d).

Great blog.  I just like the site and I will get a
