Consumer Report

I feel obligated to tell you something.
When you are shopping in the Latin section of the grocery store,
and you see this:


You might be tempted to try it.
Like I was:


Although I wasn't tempted as much as coerced...
...almost forced actually...
...although you wouldn't think so by the smile on my face.
I was innocent.
I didn't know what to expect.


Don't do it people.
Don't give in to the temptation.
12 years later and I'm still shuddering.

I can see why you keep coming back to my blog...
...always so full of helpful and pertinent information.

You're Welcome.

Ya know, since it says "malt" I probably wouldn't try it. At least not now. When I was 21, however...?

Ah, youth! It is wasted on the young.

Regarding yesterday's blog, I understand from a very good source that fathers are not supposed to have favorites among their children. So the question should not be are you your dad's favorite, but rather is your dad your favorite?

Oh, the malta challenge, or should I say initiation? I remember that and, I had that same exact reaction. It ruined everything for me. I would not even go to the malt shop te whole time I was at BYU, because I associate everything with that malt drink!

Just the name sounded gross.

Amy said...

Oooohhhhh I didn't know I was coming for the pertinent information - I thought I was coming for photos of your dreamy man friends. :D

Venassa said...

Haha looks bad, but thanks for the advice. I'll be sure to follow it!

Platt - I think you just commited blasphamy against the NYNYS.

Anyone who can pick up dime bags can also drink Malta!

(drinking Kava however on Roosevelt Island during a P-day is a no-no for multiple reasons.)

Thanks for the warning. Why do the guys look so happy? Aren't they drinking it too, or were you the guinea pig? xo

Would that qualify as a reason to be annoyed with Costa Rica?

Mary said...

I have to say the only time I half way liked Malta was when I had bronchitis and my throat was terribly sore. It actually was soothing, much better than any cough syrup.

I definitely don't miss that part of NY!

Thank you so much for that information. I will steer way clear of that stuff at the mercado!!!

Tiffany said...

Oh my gosh! How did I not see this earlier?

Many thanks for the fab picture of your amazing 'BLECCHHH!' I love it. Reminds me a little of Tom Hanks in Big when he's dressed in the hideous tux eating nasty hors d'heurves (sp?) and wiping his tongue on a napkin. Choice.

Ahhh, memories... of that nasty hideous stuff. It's just not right! Love the "retro" pictures. LOL. I really can't believe it's been 13 years, since we were in the mission field! Wow, time flies.
