This is my first post of 2020 so a very happy New Year to you! Over the festive period Snaggletooth has been eating raspberry trifle roulade, some mango and pineapple After Eights (bit weird, reminded me slightly of orange and pineapple squash drunk just after brushing my teeth), piri piri chicken flavour Pringles (my fave flavour is paprika but these were nice too) and rosemary crackers.
I’m writing this post on Christmas Eve, or Lemmy’s birthday as many of us think of it. Snaggletooth has been eating well this festive season. He’d chomped Danish butter cookies, Dairy Milk Winter Gingerbread, some Christmas cake cheese and some whiskey cheddar. He and I hope you have a wonderful and yummy Christmas.
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).
