Good Taste is Relative...

I just wanted to share that Blake has discovered "Dr. Frankenpoo's Strange and Unusual Sugar-Free Sour Strawberry Spray Candy".

This stuff is atrocious.

How do I know?

Because Blake takes great delight in saying, "Daddy, try some of my candy's not sour, I promise," then cackling like an insane fiend when he sprays it onto my tongue and I make "the nasty face", running around and yelling, "'s in my mouth! It's in my mouth!!!!"

I don't have to fake "the nasty face", because this stuff truly is the most horrible example of spray candy (a concept I'm already leery of) that I have ever had the displeasure of sampling. I think he enjoys torturing me with it because it's so nasty that he certainly won't kill his own taste buds with it, no sir, thank you very much.

Why do I allow this torture to continue?

Because I'm willing to do just about anything I can to make my kids laugh. It's musical and precious to me.

Of course, the fact that he gains so much pleasure by tormenting a fellow human being gives me some concern, but that's something to be tackled in a different post.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go scrub my tongue with a Brillo pad and the harshest tequila I can find so I can get that horrible taste out of my mouth.

Thanks for reading my ranting,



  1. Hahahahaha! You poor abused man. And if I ever see that candy stuff, I'll know to avoid it. Though I probably would have anyway since I don't even like the sour gummy bears.

    Who ever came up with such a strange (and long) name for a candy? I'd be leery of anything starting with the name Dr. Frankenpoo, but I guess it's the sort of thing that attracts kids. They can be strange creatures to be sure. They other day, my son was joking about making an "everything" cookie, having pickles and tomatoes in it. Yuck. Which is funny because he doesn't eat tomatoes when they aren't pureed and cooked in soup or sauce, and he only like sweet bread and butter pickles. Grandma, of course, refused to make any "everything" cookies, so they made chocolate chip cookies together instead. (whew)

  2. Thanks for the empathy, Jaleh!;)

    You know one of the great things about this stuff?

    Blake's bottle is a "Bonus Bottle" with 60% MORE than the regular bottle!
