Not for the faint of heart

I just had to share this.

So, Rowan and I were driving back from fight practice, desperately trying to keep each other awake after nerve-wracking days. (No, not really a complaint: in comparison to some, my life is okay right now, scary though that thought is.)

So, we're driving along, and Ro has just finished a white-chocolate and macadamia nut cookie. I offer her a dill pickle potato chip. For obvious reasons, this was not a taste sequence she was much interested in experiencing. So, because I'm a sadist, I start pushing her (her with her humours and spices and food research--how could I resist). The truly appalling conclusion to our conversation was that we determined that Reese's Peanut cups (original) and horseradish (horseradish on top, each bite must contain each), would adequately balance sweet, salt, bitter, and sour (though volume would have to alter radically if it was DeWeese's Amazing Horseradish). However, If you used Newman's Organics Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, they should be topped with sauerkraut, as there is sufficient bitter in the dark chocolate.

The Norwegian chocolate company Nidor makes a candy called the Troika which is a wafer of hazelnut creme topped with a slice of berry jelly surrounded in dark chocolate. I think one of these with a thin slice of kosher dill pickle and a slice of very very sharp cheddar cheese would be interesting. Even better if you have a little bit of wasabi powder to sprinkle on top.

Ooof, I just got back from picking up a friend at the airport, this conversation is actually making sense to me. Oh, help.

I had a curry chocalate bar resently that was the best bit of candy this side of the Wonka factory.

Actually, surprisingly, oreo cookies with the filling scraped out and replaced by wasabi aren't actually terrible.

Howabout dark chocolate, port, and just a touch of wasabi?

That's sounds really kinda good...but remember that I eat MRE's for the fun of it so I don't have any taste buds left.
