thrills on canada day.

Standard

Canada has given the United States a lot of fantastic things through the years. Some are easier to embrace than others, like this soap-tasting gum. It’s called Thrills, and it’s actually gum that’s flavored with rose water, but the result seems to taste like soap to a lot of people. Thrills got so much feedback on the taste that instead of changing the formula, they decided to run with it. Now they proudly say, “It still tastes like soap!” on the front of every pack of gum. While it likely turns a lot of people away, it must be a selling point for some since it’s been around since the 1950s.

Thanks, Canada and Happy Canada Day!

we once had a waiter in canada who said, ‘could I get you your check?’ and we answered,

‘how about the menu first?’”

snacks.

one thing different about having snacks during summer break
is that i don’t have to share them with any creature
who might suddenly appear
including a baby t-rex.
“i like vending machines, because snacks are better when they fall.
if i buy a candy bar at the store,
oftentimes i will drop it so that is achieves its maximum flavor potential.”

reynolds wrap made a food harness to keep your favorite super bowl snacks close
If you plan to watch the big game today on Super Bowl Sunday, and also anticipate eating your body weight in food while doing so, take a look back at Super Bowl 2019, when the aluminum foil aficionados at Reynolds Wrap had something they wanted to show you. Here was their unique promotional offering:

You can now satiate your appetite without moving a muscle or missing a play, thanks to the Reynolds Wrap Hunger Harness. This $5 “wearable snack pack” has plenty of pockets to hold your appetizers, main course, snacks, and beverage, all while keeping your food nice and toasty. Essentially, it’s a mini kitchen you can wear like a front-facing backpack or a baby carrier, because after all, snacks are precious cargo.

Want to nervously munch on mozzarella sticks and mini bean burritos while you yell at the referee on your TV screen? Just tuck them into the upper thermal pouch in your Hunger Harness and you’re good to go. Want to make sure you have enough tortilla chips to last through the halftime show? There’s a side pocket for that, too—plus an insulated slot for your queso or dip of choice. A built-in food tray rests on your lap and “turns you into a human table,” and there’s also a pouch for a can of your beverage of choice.

The Hunger Harness was sold in waves in limited quantities and is no longer available. Some may be found on other sites, but are now extremely rare. Just get out that old Baby Bjorn and repurpose as needed! Be creative! If you’re thinking of procuring one for yourself, please heed this advice from Reynolds: “Use caution when handling hot food and beverages.” Lovers of lava-hot pizza rolls, you’ve been warned.

one of the bonuses of being a kindy teacher

is that i always have a snack at the ready

should anything happen along my way home.

 

the road to enlightenment is long and difficult, 

and you should try not to forget snacks and magazines.
