Stu “Red Velvet” Burguiere
To paraphrase A Christmas Story:
"Now, it is well known throughout the Midwest that the fat man is a red velvet junkie.” I have no power against things Red Velvet, especially when cream cheese frosting is involved. That’s why the entire Fatty Five Challenge was at the highest threat level last night during a trip to a Wawa convenience store.
Of course, this had to be purchased. Red velvet ice cream, with chunks of red velvet cake, and cream cheese icing? And, no—I don’t care if Ben and or Jerry are willing to light me on fire because I like lower taxes. They can be as socialist as they want assuming this flavor continues to exist. Remember, capitalism always wins in the end anyway.
In addition, I am a sucker for new products, which means I also purchased this.
Anyway—the moral of the story here is—even when faced with Coconut Twix (which was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten) and Red Velvet Ice Cream—this stupid Fatty Five Challenge is so deep in my head, that I performed a taste-n-toss. Yep, I did a quick sample for research purposes and then tossed them so that I wouldn’t spend the night in a coconut/red velvet based food-coma–of-regret.
Did I immediately dive in and eat the food out of the garbage after taking this pic? I guess you’ll find out next week…
Kevin “Beginning to Consider Amputation and/or Tapeworm” Balfe
Week 7: -0.00%
Total : -3.03%
Pretty sure my nickname says it all. The mental side of this is really getting to me. I….can’t…..do…..this…..alone. Besides, swallowing a friendly lil’ tapeworm and serving as it’s host for a few weeks sounds like fun—especially if the tapeworm I choose likes Mexican and General Tso Chicken as much as I do.
