Sorry the images are backward. I usually forget to have Photobooth flip them, and I get too lazy to do it in Photoshop!
The fun surprise about strawberry yogurts is that sometimes they end up being BROWN! :/
It was kind of hard for me to get over the color. It's like you're thinking YOGURT but it looks like GRAVY.
It had a fine consistency, but it just did not have that tartness that I do so enjoy from regular yogurt. It was just kind of sweet, and only a little bit tart. Not quite yogurt, not quite pudding, and still lookin' like GRAVY.
I give rice yogurt a thumbs down.

Since I have been really bad at eating yuckystuff regularly these days, I thought I would bring back an old favorite. Some of my new readers may not have seen some of the old stuff before.
The picture coming up is from the time I tried to cram an entire can of Vienna Sausage into my mouth at once. I can't remember if I was successful or not! I think I also lost some followers, and maybe even friends, at this point. It pretty much makes vegans/vegetarians want to die. It probably makes omnivores want to die, too. I didn't end up eating the sausages, I'll tell ya that. I think I ate one, and it was REALLY SQUISHY. Like, it was already half-digested. I do have my limits. I do. I like to digest my own food. Call me crazy.

I posted this pic the other day on my regular blog:
Which led to someone from Vitasoy leaving a comment for me, and also @'ing me on Twitter, and blah blah blah, and then I photoshopped myself this fake shirt!!
1st fan photo on the My Vitsaoy Facebook fan page, what!
I know, I'm really dorky....
I also really loved this instant soy drink mix we got at the Korean market. Just add hot water!!! Sweet, soytastic, soysational.
Anyway, then my friend James asked if I'd ever tried black sesame soy milk before. I had not, but, coincidentally, I DID have a box of it in my fridge, waiting to be sampled. I was afraid. I do love soy milk, and I do love black sesame, but I was just really afraid of the two put together.
It was clearly time for me to embark on this soyventure.
It's a bit sweet and a bit thick, but it wasn't completely yucky. I may not really buy it again, but I did finish the box.
Some girls are telling me that Vitasoy makes a chocolate mint soy milk around the holidays. Now there's something to be excited about!

If the packaging says FULLY COOKED ...... I GO FOR IT.
Who has time to cook things that are already cooked? That's just wasting your day. That's just wasting YOUR LIFE.
Plus, when the weather is warm, a nice, cold hot dog, will do ya right.
It's kind of like a bologna sandwich. Without the sandwich.

Sorry again it's been so long! Sheesh!!!!!!!
Today is HOBO TUESDAY!!! It's all about PORK AND BEANS, straight out of the can.
I thought it would be a nice snack, since it was 98% fat free.
But this is not the beany deliciousness I love and remember. I think it needs the fat put back in it!!! It almost has this diet-soda aftertaste that is really weird and off-putting.
I'm getting original next time!! Bring on the fat!!! Just kidding. I don't want the fat. But really, I need the FLAVA!

Hairy and I drove down to Cupertino over the weekend to meet my folks and my bro and Jaci for a hot pot dinner in the Asian Village. After ordering food, we ran into Ranch 99 to shop in the grocery store of My People. We came home with lots of goodies, one of which was Pork Sung.
I think this is one of the foods that could really boggle the minds of the average white person. Basically, it's a lot like cotton candy, EXCEPT MADE OUT OF PORK. It's salty, fluffy, and it melts in your mouth! What's not to love!?
Protein in a pinch! Literally!!!!! nyuk nyuk!! Today, I couldn't be bothered to figure out what to eat. I made some tea, toasted some bread, slathered on a little Earth Balance, and then added a nice little layer of Pork Sung to my breakfast sandwich. Thumbs way up!

And I ate the whole thing.
I need a cool t-shirt about how much I love a microwave. I would starve to death without a microwave. I LOVE YOU, MICROWAVE!!!!

Sometimes I think I should kill this site, and just post yucky food blogs at twinkiechan.com/blog. I'm not sure. If you have any thoughts about this, I'm all ears! And then I'll think about how much I love the IDEA of this site, and how I NEED a logo that represents a can opener and a spoon, the official tools of a Yucky Stuff AdventureEater.
At any rate, I've had this little gem in my cupboards for some time. I bring you: Oyster Stew.
(Sorry about the really scary preview pic down there. I don't know that you can control that on Flickr!!!)

The REALLY disturbing part to me is that the porridge is just sitting on a shelf, all liquidy and gooey and ready to go. I know there are canned soups and other moist and squishy things that have a shelf-life, but this was my first experience with boxed mushy rice. It kind of goes against all your own beliefs in never leaving your food out or it will rot. I know it's sealed, but, really, what a puny seal to keep your rice from going green.
Considering its appearance, it didn't taste horrid at all, and I asked Hairy to buy another box... haha. If you don't have texture problems with porridge (I sure don't...I grew up on this stuff for breakfy), I give CJ Green Tea Porridge two thumbs up!

So, Hairy just went grocery shopping at the Korean grocery store.
I have been on a journey through all the different non-dairy milk beverages. I found an almond milk I enjoyed immensely, but now we can't seem to remember exactly what it was, and all other almond milks taste like poo. One time we tried a brown rice milk that tasted like dirt. Currently I am in love with OAT MILK. It's like soy milk without the soy...and the Original flavor is not too sweet.
Here I am sampling a Maeil brand Soy Drink with Walnut & Peanut (the other side of the box is in Korean, I think).
This next photo is actually the first sip I took.
It is shockingly PEANUT-TASTIC!!!!
I have nothing against peanuts, but, it's a little weird to be drinking liquid peanut, don'tcha think?
P.S. Sorry I have been SO remiss in journaling my yucky food adventures. Don't worry. I'm back in the saddle of gnar gnar and will be bringing you up to date with the horrors of my snack cabinet.

Soooo, tonight we are making our own wontons, but my snacky-organz got antsy while Hairy was at the store, so I busted out some of our booty from a trip to Cost Plus:
I have never had this before. It was a fungus-fueled adventure.
I left the sound as-is (no editing or music) because some of the crunchy noises are fun in the end. Plus you can hear me watching Nat'l Geographic in the background!
(I'm a little sad that Photobucket is warping my preview image on videos. Oh well! Sorry for the Zoolander mouth!)
Ultimately, it tastes and smells like slightly-more-seasoned Cream of Mushroom Soup. Not bad. Not great!

Check out a mouthful of Carnation hot cocoa and SEAWEED!!!!!! Cruncha muncha!
N.B.: Korean snacking seaweed has really great, toasty flavor, and is light and delicate (but a little oily). I prefer the flavor over the Japanese snacking seaweed. We tried to make sushi with Korean seaweed once and it just fell apart because it was so thin. SADZ!!!
