Name a better Pop Tart flavor
i grew up with the common strawberry poptart
that being said, im an adult with adult taste and i dont eat poptarts seriously anymore. you are a pleb if you think its worth debating
wild berry was pretty great. don't know if it's still around, though
How the fuck can you eat that stuff? It's cloyingly sweet and ridiculously unhealthy.
This was my breakfast today. Try something like that for a while and you may actually be able to resurrect your abused taste buds.
Do you guys toast your pop tarts? I just eat 'em as is
hard to explain. one of those treats from growing up that's equal parts nostalgic and delicious.
like cinnamon toast crunch
I eat them as is as well.
When did they start coming in packs of 8? I always remember it being 6.
Which is horseshit. Two poptarts never filled anyone up, so I eat two more. And then what? I leave a box with just two left? Have to eat those as well.
I do like the S'mores too, but my favorite will probably always be Brown Sugar Cinnamon.
Pic related, got a box last week, they are fucking horrible.
Nigger are you joking?
nice. good charcuterie is A+ with good booze
don't feel like I can appreciate it all when I'm hella blazed
Well, I can certainly understand nostalgia. Hell I just bought a Super Famicom last night with Seiken Densetsu 2. And Cinnamon Toast Crunch is delicious and heroin-like. But while my mother would occassionally buy Pop Tarts, even as a kid I thought they were just... Not good. As an adult, I would probably become nauseous if I were to eat one.
why the fuck would you eat a cinnamon roll in pop tart form when you could just as easily pop some Pillsbury cinnamon rolls in the oven?
I've thought about trying these.
I've also thought about trying Watermelon, but I'm to proud of being white to lower myself to that level.
Weaboos live in Nowheresville, Wisconsin and eat overpriced imported Pocky, and know about twelve words of Japanese, most of which they will misuse. Note the tatami in my pic. I've lived and worked in Japan for over ten years.
Also, good nori is delicious.
I guess if you're not used to grocery store brands, it'd be really shocking. I've got a bodega on my corner for all the munchies.
>tfw Canadian and don't get all these exotic flavours.
We get, like, 6 flavours.
No weed here, I fear. That's a good way to get deported.
But I ain't even kidding about the charcuterie. Pic related.
The reed flooring. Not much of that outside Japan, and even here it's becoming rarer, unfortunately.
Really good. Here it's usually served with soy sauce and raw quail egg as yukke. Pricey, though. That small block in the pic is 183 grams and over 1000 yen.
I had it before back in Canada, in Quebec. It's popular there, too. In fact, it really only seems to be the US that feels about horse the way Indians feel about cows, Cultural taboos are weird.
Actually, tatami is very easy to maintain. Just sweep it now and then. It also looks nice, has a very pleasant natural scent and actually feels much softer under your feet since it has a bit of give. I won't even live anywhere that doesn't have at least one tatami room.
Most people in the US are just pussies when it comes to exotic meats. I wouldn't be opposed to eating horse, but I also for some reason assume that it just wouldn't be as good as beef. I would expect it to be too lean.
Then again, that was my expectation of Camel, and Camel meat is fucking delicious.
I bet you put butter on banana bread.
I was doing this before the song came out, and I though it was weird that people hadn't. I did it one time and made a friend eat one. She thought I was insane, and then had to admit that it was so friggin good.
I'm a masochist, but does anyone like the scrambled eggs and bacon ones? Pic related
It's different. A bit chewier.
I'll happily try any meat as long as I didn't know its previous owner personally. The most exotic I've had would be kangaroo or deep-fried scorpion, depending on your definition of exotic.
You think Cherry is the shit? Get the fuck outta here.
I wouldn't be here if I didn't like it. The country suits me: safe, hard-working, public drinking is acceptable, you can set your watch by the running of the trains...
They can be a little resistant to change, though. 旧態依然 is the expression: doing things a certain way because that's how they've always been done. All cultures are guilty of that to one extent or another, but when a culture actually has a word for it, you have to expect a greater extent, eh?
I did my time as a English teacher at both an Eikaiwa and a local uni, but now I translate. Great pay if you freelance.
The common person in japan is nigh destitute and relies on working 80 hrs a week while making the equivalent of minimum wage as a salaryman. The cost of fresh food is outrageous, so most of them keep thin because they are actually staving on a nutritional level. Its crowded and extremely racist/xenophobic. Its a nice place to visit, but i wouldnt live there.
Also, good luck finding anyone wiling to help you out with directions.
There are things that I've had that I just don't like, but I'll also try about anything.
For example, Octopus. Had it a few times, don't like it. Also prefer crab over lobster, not a fan of the texture.
But I have really been wanting to try Snake and Shark for a long time. I've heard both are amazing.
One thing I would be wary about eating is any kind of rodent. Seems dirty for some reason.
Everything you wrote is just wrong.
People work a lot, but 80 hours a week is crazy by the standards even here. Food is not that expensive and I cook fresh stuff everyday. The younger generation is no mkre xenophobic than the average American. And getting help with directions? Hell, here's what you do:
1. Be foreign.
2. Look at a map with a confused expression.
3. Someone will try to help you.
Seriously, I get offers all the time when I read a map in public.
But what the hell would I know? I've only been here a decade.
California guy here. sounds like a clam life style.
Being in my world seems to hurt my heal with all the BS people living here. after I turned 22 I been keeping my head low and don't talk to anyone that I don't know. oil prices took a shit so my 32 a hour to 16 a hour pay ran out the window. And the DUI seems to being eating away at my pocket. Glad to hear someone is having fun. makes me feel like I still have hope.
The Orange crush ones are actually excellent. And I don't even eat pop tarts that often. Remember being a kid and hating the brown sugar and s'mores pop tarts. They smelt good. But tasted horrible.
Octopus is eaten more for texture than flavour, so it's very important to use a really good soy sauce. I use the oyster-infused stuff in pic-related.
I would be a little apprehensive about eating rodent, I suppose, but have you seen pigs in real life? They really are filthy, but bacon, man...
Stringy like goat?
Eh, maybe if it was farm raised? I've heard preppers talk about eating rabbit. They say that there is such a high likelihood of disease that you want to immediately roll it in mud, then throw the mud ball on a fire and cook it in the mud to kill everything.
I was eating the wild berry poptarts when I was watching 9/11 on tv as a kid. You know the purple ones with blue stripes? Whenever I get them, I always think about it. I miss my childhood.
Oh yeah. Raw, cooked, preserved... squid is awesome. Right now, my wife and I are pretty addicted to the squid tempura sushi in the pic.
I don't feel to alone here. being in Bakersfield more than all people living here have at at least 4 DUI and all are drunks living in the Kern.
just be happy you don't live in hell because it never rains.
>3. Brown sugar and cinnamon
Brown sugar cinnamon was the best. It had fucking SUGAR in the name, no fruit flavor, not even chocolate. What kid is going to turn down food that is complete sugar?
You lost me. Don't know why, but I don't like tempura.
When my wife drags me to Japanese restaurants I always order the Beef Teriyaki, but then instead of Teriyaki sauce I have them use Tonkatsu. Works well.
seems great. read this book, highly recommended.
I have the best way to eat poptarts and you cannot prove me wrong
>Toast the tart until the frosting turns golden brown, usually 3-4 setting
>The crust may burn a bit but this is oki
>Avoid burning your fingies by grabbing the PTs with a paper towel
>Place your near perfection into the freezer for 20 mins
>take out and eat your chewy goodness'
You have not lived until you have done this
God I would kill to have it at least rain more than twice a year. Other than that its just straight heat to dry cold.
Which part? The mussel miso soup? The fresh sea urchin roe? The shrimp tempura sushi rolls? The sweet potato? The kimchi?
If that's what you shit, you're welcome to take a dump in my kitchen whenever you like.
Don't know if you live near a milk bar, but crack pie is the shit for a good sugar fix.
Brown sugar, graham cracker, instant milk powder and vanilla. It's like the brown sugar pop tart filling but in pie form.
I want to travel far only if i could do it one time.
thought of places my whole life.
my grandma had foreign exchange student from japan. and they would tell me about there home land. always made me think what it would be like. if it was only for just one day.
Not a mansion, a little stand-alone house in the mountains. Two 4.5畳 rooms, one 6畳, and about another 8 in hardwood flooring for the kitchen and bathroom area.
We just moved in from a mansion actually. Still need to get a few things like a Washlet.
well, they don't have to bend over backwards to impress me. I'm a simple kind of guy that would just take in the sights and sounds of a new place. (also heard they don't like tipping?) pic is not fog...it's smog and that's Bakersfield.
I just meant that the level of service, especially to foreign guests, is amazing. I once had a convenience store clerk chase me down over two city blocks because he had accidentally short-changed me, and wanted to return that amount to me.
The amount? Two yen. About two cents. Let's just say I don't worry about counting my change here.
Wow!! Green plants. They have such a thing there? All i have is dirt. I bet when you step on the grass your feet don't bleed. (back yard.)
Yeah, there is a shitload of greenery here. I fucking love it. The pic is the view from my living room. We are literally right up against the mountainside.
The scaffolding will be gone once the maintenance guys are done painting the roof.
That is the best flavor of pop tart. No argument here. :)
I actually just lost a shitload of weight. I was a fatty but got sick of it. I look goddamn good for a guy turning 39 next month.
Why don't you guys just go into a butcher shop and suck each other's dicks. You fucking queerbo meatloving weirdo fags.
I know how you feel. Before I moved here, I was living in an apartment downtown, right off the bar/restaurant street. Great location for eating out, which I love to do, but I sure as fuck don't miss the traffic, sirens, and drunk salarymen having loud conversations on the street at 3:00am.
There's a decimal in there, on the off chance you're not joking. Christ, 666 lbs? Fuck, I wouldn't be able to see past my gut to take the pic.
Also, it's kg. We use metric here, unlike the two holdouts against it: The US and fucking Burma.
These are the best! I keep a box in my locker at work. Eat them during a break.
not much of drunk salarymen being lound.
more of drunk oildale fights and tweakers stealing shit.
and single moms that have parties to find new baby daddies.
and drug sellers..
IT's all good. lived there since i was born.
just get tried of it now and again.
Originally, I just travelled here to be with my girlfriend-now-wife while she was studying here. She later got a job as a JET, later ended up teaching at a uni, I got some translation work through there and it just went on like that.
You gotta learn some serious Jap, though.
Of course, the easiest way to get here is to have a uni degree is anything, really, and apply to an English school. It's brainless work and you have to deal with kids but it's the simplest way to get your foot in the door.
we all know the superior flavor here i mean come on
I know that's why i feel sad.
love from that California guy ):
Almost 1:00 pm, so I'm heading out for lunch and to do some shopping, but I'll make a food/Japan thread when I get back in a few hours. I'll post a pic of my cat on the tatami when I do, so look for that.
who the fuck wants pie when there is cake
If you drink beer and you're concerned about how cool you look, you're a faggot and you should kill yourself.
You're just as bad as the cancerous vegan elitists that you undoubtably bitch about.
