Things you should never, under any circumstances, ingest but are technically food

It was more of a don’t ask don’t tell kind of thing. The owners pretty much knew. The workers were younger. And they were told that the rats were pets not feeders.


#1822

Paying for rats in New York feels so wrong.


#1823

Well I didn’t want to poison Buffy. :)


#1824

I thought most pet stores sold feeder mice, rats, crickets, fish, etc.


#1825

I’m sure they do. This was a local, mom and pop shop. Maybe their kids worked there. Wanted to save them some stress?

I’d just like to mention that I find it delightful that an adult moose is the standard of measure for pastry size.


#1828

Instead of grande, venti and tall, it’s caribou, wapiti and moose.

This is a repost so we may have seen it here already, but it feels worth repeating, to ensure everyone possible has been warned.

I’ve been known to get a Frosty on the way home from the bar. But I never even considered combining the Frosty and the drinking.


#1831

Without reading the article I’m gonna go with Maker’s Mark.

Edit: Having now read the article, Fernet Branca? Are you nuts?


#1832

Yeah yours makes more sense. I could have also seen a coconut rum, or even a Kahlua.

Never heard of that one before.


#1833

Damn hipsters and their fernet.


#1834

Or Fangelico or Grand Marnier. Depends on the frosty flavor.


#1835

I’m thinking something almondy would work well, but I don’t know liquors.


#1836

That’s what I was thinking, Frangelico.

Maybe some amaretto. Bailey’s. Kahlua. Creme de menthe. I dunno, there’s a lot of “chocolate” mixed drinks out there so I imagine remove the chocolate stuff from the drink recipe and sub in Wendy’s frosty and Bob’s your uncle.


#1837

I don’t like Kahlua much, but amaretto or any minty drink should work well.


#1838

Fernet is upscale Jagermeister. Full of medicinal tasting herbs and the like. Literally the worst thing to combine with a milk based product. Think Nyquil and heavy cream.

The US is falling behind the rest of the world. Where’s our breakfast chicken-mac-and-cheese?

My husband is still irritated that he can’t order a cheeseburger at McDonalds at 9:00 AM even though they went to the effort of offering breakfast all day.
