Quantumcat A colleague went to Costco and bought a bunch of snacks. One of them was a box of Ding Dongs. I took one, unwrapped it, took a small bite - tasted OK to start with if a bit sweet. Then got hit with a wave of chemically taste. It was disgusting. Tasted like something died and then they tried to hide the taste by soaking it in bitter overly-sweetened-with-chemicals medicine. I managed to take about 3 nibbles but then had to give up as it was making me feel sick. This was about 20 minutes ago and I still have a bitter taste in my mouth and feel sick.

They also bought a bag of pistachio squares, which I think were about the most delicious nut-based snack I have ever eaten. Perfect combination of slightly savoury but also sweet. Great texture. I could probably eat the whole bag. I was going to buy a membership to Costco just to be able to buy them (and bagels) but then found out the bag costs $20 (!!!!!!!) so maybe $60 a year and $20 a bag is a little too much, even though they are so darn delicious.
