There’s Bacon in My Dessert

You know it’s going to be a good day when you wake up to see any of the following:

  • You haven’t overslept.
  • Your cat fed itself.
  • You’ve won the lottery.
  • Your roommates actually cleaned up the pizza box and half eaten slices instead of leaving them sit out all night. (I have a better chance of winning the lottery….)
  • Your blog is Freshly Pressed.
  • It’s not the zombie apocalypse…yet.
  • Yogi Castle, the greatest frozen yogurt place ever, is following you on Twitter.

That’s right: Yogi Castle is following ME on Twitter. Someone there knows all about the Yogi Castle Chronicles.

So every night for the rest of my life one night this week I’ll be celebrating with Yogi Castle’s new flavor:

Okay…so maybe I already celebrated.

Mounds Yogurt, Coconut, Cookie Dough, and Caramel and Vanilla Syrups

And for you weirdos freaks other people who like bacon in your dessert, there’s something for you, too.

So many of the comments on the last post were hilarious. Also check out Ellie Ann’s, and Laurie’s, Queen Gen’s, and Vesta Vayne’s comment thread, which starts here.

Chocolate + Coconut = Crack

Good morning, class! Would everyone please take their seats?

Readers, if you’ve learned anything here, I hope it’s these two things:

  1. Acceptable Chocolate-to-Fruit Ratio
  2. Yummy Food = Crack

The other day Miss Piece of the Piehole sent me a link to a blog with lots of delicious food.

Because of my recent coconut kick, I made The Domestic Rebel’s Almond Joy Blondie Bars. Except I used more chocolate…of course.

Even though the recipes don’t specifically list “crack” as an ingredient, I’m sure it’s in there. Why? Science.

Chemistry 101

I suspect that when certain foods come into contact with each other, a chemical reaction occurs and results in an addictive substance known as crack.

For those of you mathematically inclined, write this equation down. It’s even more important than E = MC².

Chocolate³ + Coconut = Crack

That’s just one example. Here’s another:

When the amount of Cake ≤ the amount of Icing = Crack

Physics 101

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Action: Eating food with crack in it.

Reaction: Eating even more food with crack in it.

Reaction to the Reaction: Expanding thighs.

My Masterpiece: Frozen Yogurt at its Best

Yogi Castle Visit #32

It’s snowing.

Snow = Cold Dessert.

This is my greatest creation yet. It’s going to take a miracle for me to try something else.

So pray for a miracle…in a week or two…I need time with this deliciousness first.

Cake Batter Yogurt, Coconut, Caramel Syrup, Chocolate Syrup, Graham Cracker Crumbs

In the background is Kiefer’s hand. He’s gripping his frozen yogurt because he’s afraid I’ll steal it, which is totally ridiculous. I would never steal anyone’s yogurt…especially his because he probably put mint in it.

Am I the Stinky Kid?

Dear Yogi Castle,

Kiefer and I frequent our local Yogi Castle…well…frequently. They know us there. We get free drinks. We I have a nickname. We’re regulars.

Despite our constant patronage, I’m concerned. Concerned about a frozen yogurt crisis. Concerned about my well being and sanity.

I’m concerned that Yogi Castle may go the route of some of our other “regular” places.


RIP Cocoa Trio. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss its warm chocolatey goodness. Borders went out of business despite our constant hot chocolate patronage.

Ever since, Kiefer and I haven’t been able to find a place for us to be regulars.

TGI Friday’s

Kiefer and I used love their sangria. We went there every Sunday. Then they changed their sangria recipe, and now it tastes icky.


Kiefer and I used to visit a local Irish pub for the best cream of crab soup ever. And then…they changed the recipe. WHY?! Is it me? Am I not using enough deodrant? Dear God, am I the stinky kid? (::sniffing underarm::)

Yogi Castle

So far, so good. There are several flavors there that I like: cookies and cream, strawberry, cake batter, and pralines and cream. But there are also flavors I dislike: pumpkin, mint….

I noticed the Coming Soon flavor is Green Tea. Ewww….

My worst fear would be to walk into Yogi Castle and see only these flavors: Green Tea, Peppermint Stick, Coffee, Pumpkin, Mint, Coffee, Gingerbread, Eggnog, Banana, and Watermelon.

Please don’t let it come to that. I’m begging you to not end our relationship.

If I’m the stinky kid, just tell me. I’ll wear more Jelly Belly Blueberry Muffin perfume.

I’ll do anything. Seriously.

 Your Best Customer,


PS: While perusing your website, I noticed two flavors that aren’t at my local Yogi Castle: Mounds Chocolate Coconut and Angel Food Cake. Please send mass quantities. Thanks in advance.

What are your favorite or most hated flavors?
