Snaggletooth has been eating some sweets popular in Sweden, the little fruity boat shaped Pim Pim and the lovely Fika Bites. He’s also chomped a chocolate bear and a retro Marathon.
My two favourite foods are cheese and chocolate so I often feed these to Snaggletooth. Recently he’s chomped salted caramel whips, Pie d’Angloys camembert (the first camembert I have ever bought), fancy chocolate cupcakes (on offer in waitrose, they’re five pounds a box usually!!) and Whittakers plum and almond chocolate (a lovely gift from my cousin who lives in New Zealand.
I think sherbet lemons ought to be renamed sherbet Lemmys in honour of the great man. I’d start an online petition about it if I wasn’t already busy being weird in lots of other ways and if politics wasn’t in the pickle it’s in. I’d love to know what Lemmy would have made of Brexit. Anyway, so far it’s just me and a Twitter chum (thanks Gord Turner @StormLeaf for making yourself a mental note) using the term sherbet Lemmys but please do join in. I’m also trying to get the ten pound note referred to as a persuasion but that’s a side quest.
Recently Snaggletooth has licked a sherbet Lemmy, chomped burger flavour crisps, eaten rock from Birmingham, the Home Of Metal (check out the Black Sabbath Exhibition if you haven’t already, it’s wonderful!) and had some dark chocolate. Yum!
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.
