At the Saturday Market [in front of the library] and today at The Taste of Bend, we saw the Stuff Banana booth. A local couple has a patent pending on their food “invention”: They straighten out a banana. Core it. Then fill the core with nutella, peanut butter or candies.
We had 2 people try it, and both said it was good, but the core was way too big…wayy too much peanut butter/nutella inside, and they couldn’t eat the whole thing. I personally can’t imagine an instance where there is too much nutella, but that is what I was told.
I know, first I have a post about pretzel M&Ms, and then I have a post about being able to buy coconut milk right alongside soy and cows milk. Well, today I was at the store and saw…coconut M&Ms!
Coconut must be hot right now. I bought a bag to test them out. I was surprised that the center was NOT a white, creamy coconut concoction, but instead, it was chocolate with crunching coconut in it. Nevertheless, I liked them.
I just saw that you can buy coconut milk at the store, next to the soy and cows milk.
I was at the store and saw that M&M’s is now making a kind of M’s where there is pretzel in the middle. The store only had the huge bag so I didn’t get any [I was anticipating NOT being keen on them]. If I see a smaller bag, I’ll try them out.
UPDATE: We bought a small package of these M’s today. Ralph “liked them a lot”…NOT too sweet. That said, I thought they were “just OK”. There is the standard candy coating shell with the thin layer of chocolate. I was thinking the middle would be pretzel and chocolate, but the entire middle is pretzel. Thus, NOT too tasty to me…one was enough for me.
A self serve frozen yogurt shop opened up in Bend, and like everyone else in town…we went over to check it out. They currently have 6 flavors:
* Some type of vanilla
* Some type of chocolate [I tasted Cable Car Chocolate, which I didn’t care for…imagine that?]
* Green tea/tart
* A sugar free flavor
* Two other flavors
There are a ton of “toppings” from fruit, various cereals [Fruit Loops…], candy [Gummi pieces…], sprinkles, cocoanut…you get the idea.
The yogurt was tasty, but I thought expensive. My cup was half filled with NO toppings, and it cost $3. I noticed I was in the minority re NO toppings. Just about everyone has toppings [“that’s the fun part”], and you should just see all stuff kids put on…a little bit of everything! Sheesh.
Anyone know how many people are moving out of Bend?
I don’t know all that many people and I’ve had two girlfriends in the past three months leave for California.

I have just read that the average American uses 57 sheets of TP each day.
Think about this. How many people [men?] and children do you know… and how many sheets they use. And … still the stat is 57 sheets per person? Ha.
