 hello. i'm back.

whew. what an exhausting couple of days. my webhost upgraded its operating system and inadvertently threw my movable type database into a tizzy.

aside from the headache of trying to figure out how to fix it, the inability to blog resulted in an overwhelming sense of relief.. i didn't have to come up with anything creative to write about. it was a mini-vacation of sorts. (one which was filled with research and computing, but a vacation nonetheless.)

well, as it happens, i still don't have anything creative to blog about, so i'll just talk about the most recently-discovered loco-pop flavors:

sweet corn

yes, sweet corn.

mary called it "creamed corn on a stick". it's a little chunky and a little creamy. and it was good, if a little disorienting. secret: there's a little bourbon in it.

summer said while she was apprenticing in mexico she learned how to make corn paletas with chili and lime. that sounds divine... let's hope that one makes it to the menu board soon!

raspberry white chocolate

man, those white chocolate flavors knock my socks off. this was very rich and very, very yummy.

chocolate with rosemary

unfortunately our stomachs got full before we could try this one. but you should try it, and you should tell me about it.

asian plum

this was the second time i've had this one. it is SO GOOD. plum, dry sherry, and chinese five-spice. it's divine. total yum.

those all sound really good. maybe I should just go and try them, since I have fallen off the wagon in a big way. Argh.

i feel no guilt when i eat the fruit-based ones. especially the sugar-free flavors. i just count 'em as a fruit serving...

i had a chocolate rosemary one when i was there yesterday--the rosemary was really subtle (my friend kate tried mine and couldn't taste it at all). so it's a thumbs-up if you like the chocolate ones!
