I've never been afraid to experiment with unusual flavor combinations. Yesterday I stopped at my favorite ice cream shop and had a cone of Guinness ice cream. It wasn't as good as I'd hoped but it wasn't terrible either. I tried the Salted Caramel and the Italian Strawberry made with balsamic vinegar but my favorite is still the the Roasted Garlic and Almond Chip ice cream. For someone who loves garlic it was a real treat. I also have a wonderful recipe for Garlic Chocolate Chip Cookies if anyone is interested.
Last night I asked FrankenKristin to pick up a box of Bertie Bott's during her daily trip to Target and this morning Luke and I sampled a few. We skipped by the usual flavors, (grape, lemon drop, cherry) and went right for the good stuff. Here is my assessment so far.
Ear Wax - As Atilla The Mom said, who's to say what ear wax should taste like. Nonetheless, it wasn't as bad as I thought.
Sardines - Holy crap! This really did taste like sardines. Even coated with sugar I still hate them.
Dirt - Again, right on the money. Luke spit it out, started crying, and refused to eat any more.
Grass - Not bad, but I had this one right after the Buttered Popcorn so I think my taste buds were a little biased.
Tonight we'll go for the vomit, worms and boogers. Thanks, Atilla for the idea.

The kids and I finished the box this evening. No Vomit, no Boogers, no Soap, but worst of all no Bacon. We did enjoy the Black Pepper. Emma was courageous enough to try Sardine (which she spit out as well) and Luke, who overcame his earlier traumatization, sampled Grass. Earthworm tasted supsiciously like Dirt. Go figure.
