The Ew Department: Bagel Dippers

Lauren and I went to Einstein Bagels for lunch today. The next table over, a young seemingly healthy couple proceeded to do the following. They each tore at their individual bagels, spread cream cheese on the torn off piece, and proceeded to dunk the piece in a communal cup of coffee. I have never been more horrified in all my life.

Although, if they were dunking Nacho Cheese bagels in their coffee I would have shmeared my eyes out.

The Ew Department: Yogurt Covered Pretzels

Surprise, surprise: today the thought of touching food repulsed me. I rolled out of bed, put my stockings on and began fretting over what I would consume before class.

Our refrigerator offered no help: left over sour cream, year old cartons of red pepper hummus. Yes: time to clean the fridge.

So I went to Smoothie King and bought my usual lemon twist smoothie with strawberry. Then I asked myself: “Will that be enough?

My self said “no” so I spotted a bag of yogurt covered pretzels and said: “Ok, I’ll buy those too.”

Fast forward to Business Associations, where I tear open the bag and pop a few in my mouth.

“Blech!”

They tasted like cardboard dipped in plastic. They were awful. And I like pretzels. I like pretzels dipped in things. I like things dipped in yogurt. My mother used to send me to school with yogurt covered raisins. I am no rookie when it comes to yogurt dipped things and pretzels that are dipped. But these were terrible!

Because of this, I begin a new category on the Amateur Gourmet. A category that I call “Ew.”

Yogurt Covered Pretzels from Smoothie King? Ew.
