Silly food things you've bought lately

Mine are a takoyaki maker and a juicer. I rarely drink juice. It was such a bargain, though...

  1. cippolino onions in balsamic vinegar. useless but tasty.

    1. A shark-shaped plastic snack holder. I put goldfish crackers in it, because I think that's funny(and zoologically accurate). I'd put people-shaped snacks in it, if available-it would entertain me even more. I am almost 26 and an attorney. No shame.

        Hey, I'm over 55 and just saw the ad for goldfish shaped bread--can't wait to find it! We all get to be silly at times.

          I will neither confirm, nor deny, that I have already bought the goldfish-shaped sandwich thins-they tasted like regular soft wheat bread, but they are about as fun as bread gets.

            I'm Jealous! Still haven't found the goldfish bread, but will buy it the first time I spy it. Hubs will get goldfish grilled cheese with no fore-warning about the adorable bread. And I am unanimous in that. (shades of Are You Being Served, Mrs. Slocombe)

          They have Spongebob shaped crackers :) I think it's as close as you'll get to human crackers haha!

            Definitely not above that, remotely :) They sound fun!

        3. A really huge, heavy, stainless steel grill spatula from Sur la Table that is supposed to be for fish. Actually my Mom bought it for me as a gift, but she was sure I would want it for grilling fish. It is so awkward that I will probably never use. Now that I think about it, might be handy for shoveling charcoal....

          1. Do those Lofthouse iced sugar cookies that make my teeth want to fall out count?

            1. Atomic Fireball candies. I went into the store at the gas station yesterday for a bottle of water and spotted them. I love them so, and am eating one now :)
