Stick A Fork In Me, I'm Done

Just when I was sure that American "cuisine" had gone as far as it could probably go in making a mockery of all that is good, real, food, they've done it again.

I heard an ad on the radio today for a restaurant that has all kinds of waffles and they especially want you to stop in and get the "fluffernella".  That's right.  Marshmallow fluff and Nutella.

There isn't much that I hate in the world of sweets, but the idea of hazelnuts in my chocolate really ruins my day.  I hate hazelnuts.  A lot.  I try to like them because I love the idea of a chocolate spread.   But every time I eat Nutella, I taste those hazelnuts and it just makes me want to scream.  What a waste of calories on something I don't like.

And I do try, about once a year, to enjoy Nutella.  And every time?  Total ruin of my dessert.

But now?  Now someone has taken what is one of those rare food obsessions that the French have, Nutella, and they want to mix it with fluff??  On a waffle?

I knew no good would come of Nutella being sold in everyday grocery stores in the US.  I knew Americans would do something to ruin the "charm" of this French craze.

I just didn't know they'd take the Fluffernutter and ratchet it up a few notches with Nutella and a waffle.

Forget "what will they think of next?" .  They've thought of it all.

  1. I will be sure to steer my Nutella lovin' children away from the waffle place. Thanks for the heads up. I have heard of too many people who crave the stuff, so I have never tried it. I don't need another junk food craving to be sure. My children, on the other hand, were introduced to it by friends. It is a rare treat at our house.


I love comments almost as much as I love summer. I reply to all comments except those ridiculous anonymous comments offering me dirty deeds and real estate.
