The other day Addy went with Marc to our local Asian market in order to pick up some Korma sauce (Addy had a hankering for Chicken Korma a la Jamie Oliver from his Jamie’s Food Revolution cookbook. )
Marc being “Addy’s Daddy” also purchased a small snack for her (that just happened to contain chocolate, imagine that!)
“You have to see these” said Addy when she came home. “I’ve saved you two cookies”
Note that although she saved two cookies for me, she didn’t save any smooth chocolate cream with which to eat them, but I digress.
The snack, Yam Yam consists of cookie sticks you dip into “smooth chocolate cream.” The interesting thing is that each cookie stick also has words printed on them. “Look inside for fun words” the packaging advertises.
I suppose that they’re like an edible version of those magnetic refrigerator poetry words. If you play with the cookie sticks before you eat them, you might be able to create some sort of cookie haiku.
I looked at the two cookie sticks Addy had given me. The words printed on them were:
- Lucky Color Yellow
- Chicken, and
I’ve got to object. Having your “lucky color be yellow” can not in any way (or language) be considered “fun” (I am a confirmed yellow hater.) And the word “Kokekokko” should not be considered fun because as far as I can tell, it’s a made-up word, (a little too Dr. Seuss for me, if you know what I mean.)
Just not my idea of a fun time.
But you know what? They certainly nailed the fun words elsewhere. No one and I mean no one can doubt that the words; chick and chicken are anything but tremendously knee-slappingly fun words.
Our family can certainly attest to that.
So in the end, well done Yan Yan manufactures. My only request? Next time include just a little more smooth chocolate cream so that Addy can also save some of that for me.
