nestle stixx*

A few months ago, Pepperidge Farm* came out w/ a "choc fudge pirouette" – a choc version of the cylindrical pirouette cookie but w/ choc fudge filling & a choc cookie wafer. It seemed almost-newsy but not really. But there must be some kinda market for those pirouette-style cookies cuz that’s basically what new Nestle Stixx is: wafer cylinder filled w/ flavored cream & coated in choc. Flavors: 1. milk choc 2. dark choc 3. butterfinger. They’re good, esp the dark choc, w/ the A+ contrast between crispy cookie & sweet choc. The lame thing is that they’re pitching these as 90-cal bars that are "good for health-conscious types" but try eating less than 3 at a time.
*Nestle & pepp farm's websites blow

I'll make this brief, because some people have said it's hard to read my long postings. And, I admit, they ARE pretty complex. But you people are the ones begging for information.

The artificial tongue link is intriguing. If it could roll its ahrs in French, it could read NYCE to me. YAY.

Ballet talk? I thought that meant sauteed cow's lips (chapped ones).

Oh well, so much for classing the place up.

tom, I assume you were looking in the mirror during that tirade.
since no one else goes on and on it could only be directed at yourself.
