Cotton Candy

By Javon Mahabir

When was the last time you can remember going to the circus and begging your mom and dad for that sweet and sticky fluffy ball of sugar and mixed coloring. In America, we call it cotton candy, and in England it’s called candy floss or fairy floss. Whatever name you call it, it’s sure to make that inner child in all of us happy and your dentist!  Read the rest of this entry »

Lollipops

By Heather Blanchette
WE MOVED TO THE NEW TASTYMADNESS.COM
My apartment is my own little candy shop. My roommates and I have a bowl of cookies on the kitchen table, a platter with M&M’s, starbursts and Hershey Kisses next to the TV and an over sized bowl filled with every kind of lollipop imaginable on the bookshelf. Let’s just say CVS and Shaw’s have made quite a bit of money from us this semester.

We have those mini Dum Dum Lollipops, because you can eat three for the same amount of calories as a big Dum Dum (which apparently I thought was amazing when I bought a super sized bag of them). We have Tootsie Roll Pops, and mini Tootsie Roll Pops, and we have those giant round lollipops with crazy flavors like buttered popcorn (gross!). Read the rest of this entry »

Ice Cream

While eating my blackened toast this morning, I realized I hated breakfast. This realization made my stomach feel like I had eaten an entire quarry, and no that’s not just because my toast was hard as a rock.

I’m sick of breakfast; I’m sick of toast and butter, I’m sick of bagels and cream cheese, and I’m sick of sugared cereals all the way to healthy cereals that tastes like sandpaper. I’m sick of all of it…

 Except for…The Breakfast Of Champions! Read the rest of this entry »

Chick-fil-A

If you had asked me a few days ago which fast food restaurant is my favorite, I would have said Chick-fil-A, hands down. However, as of yesterday, I’m feeling a little guilty about my answer.

I’m sure most of you, aside from Jordan who has apparently been living underground his whole life, have eaten at a Chick-fil-A. You know how good their waffle fries taste, you wonder about the necessity of the strategically placed two, not three, pickles on the chicken sandwich and you ogle at the huge, delicious shakes (yet often choose not to order them because you feel guilty holding up the line for twenty minutes while the underpaid seven year old behind the counter makes it).

Ben and Jerry's

By Heather Blanchette

WE MOVED TO THE NEW TASTYMADNESS.COM
We’ve been dating for the last six months, we spend every night together, me, Ben and Jerry. There is no other brand of ice cream that I would rather spend so much quality time with. We watch TV together, do homework together, and watch movies in bed together; there is nothing Ben, Jerry and I don’t do. Read the rest of this entry »

Peanut Butter Blossoms

I have always been a fan of Peanut Butter Blossoms ever since my mom started making them for my brother, sister and I when we were younger. The years have definitely passed by, but it seems the cookies we grew up on stay with us over a lifetime. I’ve attached the recipe for you guys and gals to check out after the break.

Fruit Dip

Today began like any other day: 6 hours of sleep, up early to work on homework, hunch-backing to class with twenty pounds of papers, notebooks and snacks slung over my shoulder, but then in class I made a party foul. Now I am not a very graceful person, but I do try pretty hard to watch myself. However, when you combine lack of sleep, with too much caffeine, with nerves from giving a presentation, it equates to nothing but bad news.

During our luxuriously long and relaxing five minute break given to us as a treat to split up our three hours of sitting in the most uncomfortable desks in a room with poor lighting and curious carpet stains, I pulled out my super cute Little Mermaid container filled with grapes – because obviously my lack of sleep skews my perception of what I am actually going to want as a snack later in the day.

While my tummy grumbled, and the teacher stood watching the minutes tick by on his watch, as to not waste a second more of class time, I ever so carefully knocked the entire, very full container of grapes off my desk. Read the rest of this entry »
