I have now fed 400 things to Snaggletooth! He’s recently chomped some garlic and parsley toasts (found in Lidl, who like to have new and exciting things which are never there the next time you go back). He’s also slurped some espresso martini, enjoyed some chocolate chip brioche and the 400th thing he’s eaten was Mr Kipling’s apple flavour Battenbergs (delightfully lime green and bright pink coloured, like an X-Ray Spex album cover).
Every Monday over on Twitter I enjoy reading whatever is attached to the hashtag #MotorheadMonday. I always join in by feeding something to Snaggletooth. This week I’ve reached 392 things fed to Snaggletooth! I’m going to do another 274 and I expect to reach my goal of 666 foods fed to Snaggletooth some time in 2024!
Lately Snaggletooth has had fancy Marks And Spencers caramel chocolates that look like marbles, a pink iced fairy cake, some clotted cream fudge (my Mum went to Devon) and some jelly beans.
Recently Snaggletooth has been indulging his sweet tooth. He’s chomped some Nesquik cereal straight from the box, chewed some Curly Wurly Squirlies (I was tempted to arrange them back into the shape of a full size Curly Wurly, like doing a jigsaw), licked some lollies and eaten a Yowie, something I’ve not seen in England since the 90s. This particular Yowie I bought in a CVS pharmacy while on holiday in Florida. The chocolate is not as nice as I remember it but the toy is good, it’s an endangered bird called the Southern Ground Hornbill.
Recently Snaggletooth has eaten a Lion Bar Easter egg, some Beech’s chocolate bunnies, some Marmite Peanut Butter (which tastes a bit like runny dry roasted peanuts) and some RJ’s Liquorice Allsorts which come in unusual flavours and colours that wouldn’t be out of place on a punk album cover.
RJ’s Liquorice Allsorts come in banana, raspberry, orange and lime flavour and I bought them at a local garden centre. They cost a whopping £3.99 but I treated us because I was sad. Garden centres remind me that my grandparents are dead. The raspberry ones just taste sweet, but Snag and I detected a bit of flavour in all the others, with the banana being most successful.
This week Snaggletooth has been crunching pulled pork flavour crisps, slurping boozy liqueur chocolates (liqueur is one of those words I always have to think about how to spell), nibbling caramel chocolate bunnies and also strawberry and cream flavour Lindor chocolates.
I’ve now fed 376 things to Snaggletooth and am going to feed him another 290. Then I’ll look for another weird hobby.
