3 Musketeers – All for One, One for All!

If you follow Foodimentary’s page, you know that today is National Nougat Day.  As usual, he has many interesting facts – linguistic, historical – which tie into the featured food item.  My favorite candy car, the 3 Musketeers bar, is mentioned here.  Over the years, 3 Musketeers has had different seasonal and limited edition flavors, which have included cherry, strawberry, French vanilla, raspberry, hot cocoa, marshmallow, coconut, and mint.  What flavor 3 Musketeers would you like to see?  Would it be more mainstream, like 3 Musketeers Cinnamon? 3 Musketeers Cappuccino? Or would your new flavor be more on the wild side, like 3 Musketeers Wasabi or Maple Bacon 3 Musketeers?

The ocean called, they’re running out of shrimp!

If you know the response to the line in the title, you’re probably a Seinfeld fan. (Not that’s there anything wrong with that.)

Here I am thinking whether or not I had anything to add to my blog.  The TV is on; I’m watching a Seinfeld episode.  This show ended its original run over 15 years ago, yet it’s still relevant and very funny.  Then I had a thought: Is there anything Seinfeld-related that I can put on my blog? Perhaps a recipe for black-and-white cookies.

After googling simply, “Seinfeld food,” I find this site: http://www.foodandwine.com/slideshows/foods-from-seinfeld-episodes/1.  There are 10 recipes, each with a color photo of the food and a brief reference of the food to a Seinfeld episode.  And, yes, one of the recipes is for a black-and-white cookie.

That is why I buy unsalted pretzels.
