Day 8: Breakfast

This is about as light as it's gonna get in the breakfast department -- chocolate-covered marshmallows.
They're dipped individually, 50 cents each, in milk or dark chocolate. Three for $1.25.
I take six in dark chocolate.
What food group does marshmallow fall into?

The Breakfast of Champions! Makes Lucky Charms seem like Grape Nuts, in the nutrition category ...

Yeah, it's just not .. solid.
At least batter has something about it that reminds me of pastry or toast.

I've tried those chocolate covered marshmallows - last night in fact. I recommend them! They are covered in dark chocolate - yummy.

On the topic, can anyone tell me why they are called marshmallows?

Further, on the topic of last night at the fair - I also want to say that the chocolate covered marshmallows are my favorite food on the stick, and I tried several. Least favorite: chocolate drizzled twinkie on a stick - should have taken note and gone for something else on a stick when saw there was no one in the line for the twinkies.

The Twinkie can be a grease bomb. It's batter-batter-batter and cream, so there's not much variety. Still, having a marshmallow with it sounds interesting.

Here's a Wiki link for marshmallow:

Do marshmellows even qualify as a 'food?' They seem pretty artificial to me. Maybe they're a lighter version of chewing gum.

The chocolate has saved the marshmallow's behind in that case. Made it real food.

I was reading another Pioneer Press article yesterday that said the chocolate covered marshmallows tasted more like wax than chocolate...hmmm...interesting.

Yeah, I read that.
Chocolate has joined the long list of fashionable things -- vodka, tequila, coffee, for example -- that now must be studied and cultivated rather than just eaten.
These days people smirk at chocolate unless it's some highbrow Belgian 70-percent-cocoa job.
I've had the cheap waxy kind.
This ain't it.
It's not posh, but it's pretty good.
And I figure: What do you expect for 50 cents a marshmallow, anyway?
