Bagel shops should label their cream cheeses.
This morning I pointed at what I THOUGHT was cream cheese with green olives behind the glass for my bagel, but it turned out to be jalapeno cream cheese heavy on the japapenos!
Woke me up though.
Speaking of things that are hot.... my husband is endlessly troubled by the winter offering at Dunkin' Donuts known as "White Hot Chocolate."
This is hot beverage, similar to cocoa, but made with white chocolate instead of the real stuff.
It's pretty tasty, even though white chocolate isn't really my thing, but what bothers Amram is the name. To him a "white hot" beverage should be undrinkable, uncontainable by mere styrofoam! It should require the employees to use tongs, and wear welding masks... and should you burn your tongue... woe unto you!
He thinks they should call it Hot White Chocolate - more appetizing, less frightening.
I tried to get him to think about it differently - imagine if it was a mint flavored cocoa drink - they'd call it "Mint hot chocolate" right? Hot white chocolate makes it sounds like a melted down candy bar not a white chocolate beverage I think, but there is no convincing him.
OK that's all, just wanted to let you know I'm still around.
Oh, and I hear that my email isn't listed anywhere on this site for some reason.
I'll have to fix that but in the meantime if you have questions to "ask Shifra" send 'em on to email@example.com and I'll get to them as soon as I can.
