Weekly Photo Challenge: Cherry On Top


From Beara Peninsula.

In the Allihies area we stopped for a picnic lunch to enjoy the beautiful countryside views (as seen in a previous Photo Challenge).  The only thing that could make it even better was trying a new kind of European candy bar that we don’t have in the States: the Cadbury Double Decker.

I have a huge sweet tooth, so I love trying new candies, and this one was quite good.  I also tried a Nestle Aero and of course had some Kinder chocolate, which I was already familiar with from my time at university in Spain.

Being serious for a minute, the War Boys’ chrome mouth spray from the movie is obviously ritualistic, practically religious in nature.  But I also wondered if it contained some kind of stimulant, too?  It’s just the biologist in me.  What do you guys think?  Either way, it was a really cool aspect of Fury Road.

A: In the Sith Grade.

My husband and I went grocery shopping last night and this somehow ended up in our cart:

I did one blue box and one red box (blue is my favorite Jell-O flavor).  Here are some of the results:
