July is almost over and in case you haven’t noticed, so far this month all my posts were food related (as well as Marius’ who played along, thanks Marius!). A little while back I thought of something and figured people wouldn’t be interested, so I didn’t mention it.
Last week, I saw this meme on Brave Astronaut’s blog where one question was about his favourite candy bar. He also had a link to a little test, where you were asked if you could recognize a candy bar by seeing its middle. I did the test, thinking I knew my candy bars, to only realised that I knew Canadian candy bars. So, it got me back to this idea I had.
Also, last week a bunch of bloggers participated in “Blog share” where bloggers post anonymously on a fellow blogger’s blog. I’ve read a few (there were too many for me to read all) and it brought back that idea of mine (no Marius, this has nothing to do with what has been brewing, just so you know, in case you’re wondering).
Here’s goes: We all have favourite snacks or treats from our childhood or current that we just love and often they are very “local”. Since I’m curious about food in general I thought we could do the opposite of a “food fight”: let’s do “food surrender”! We could send each other any snacks, sweets and candy bars you guys enjoy, your local treats and “exchange” or “swap” with what we people “up here, North of the Border” have. I’ve referred to “Whippet” in a title not long ago, and was asked was it was. No it wasn’t the dog, but delicious cookies!
I’m thinking it could be a fun tasting experiment. What do you think? Would you be willing to participate in this "Food Surrender"of mine?
