is it wrong that i want to try the bacon milkshake? i sure as hell don't want a whole one, if i could get a shot glass of it or so, that'd be nifty. i love milkshakes but even the small sizes tend to be way too much. not to mention i only like them from places where you get them made with actual ice cream, which usually means no fast food places (though i'd make an exception to try a bacon one).

but yes, i don't get everyone's obsession with bacon. i like bacon, it's delicious when it's nice and crispy. but i could easily go a year without having it and be fine. i'm hardly the healthiest person but i try to avoid eating it because lord knows even doing that has to help.

i like bacon enough and all, but this cult like worship that's all over the internet wore thin pretty fast tbh.

Macaroons are a little cookie with coconut flavoring, if I remember correctly. At least the ones I ate growing up were.

I've never had a "macaron," but from what I understand, they're otherwise ordinary "macaroons" sandwiched together with (usually) flavored buttercream that complements whatever extract or spice the cookies are flavored with.

The tendency to equate "macaroons" with coconut is a new thing--the classic American macaroon is actually almond, but nowadays that kind is more likely to be called by its Italian name, amaretti. They can be and are made with all kinds of nuts, though. (Trivia: the White House still serves Thomas Jefferson's own handwritten recipe (in French and English) for "macarons"--i.e. almond macaroons/amaretti--to guests; he personally collected the recipe in Paris, long before the sandwich type was invented.)

Macaroons, all types, are a staple in Jewish homes at Passover. When she could afford pistachios, my mother used to make them with pistachios and orange flower water. That's my favorite of the kinds I've tried.

I'm happy that apparently I don't spend enough time on the internet to know that the internet is bacon obsessed. It must be on Facebook and/or Twitter.

The candy bar, Snickers, will soon be discontinued in a king size
version and the regular bar will also be reduced in size.

The Mars Candy Company bows to the Nanny State and the Food Police.

They bowed to the nanny state? Where's your evidence that they did this because of government?

or it could be that because people are more concerned about calories they will be more likely to buy a bar if they perceive it to be fewer calories.

that's likely the case.

your best friends the corporations never do anything that they don't believe will increase their bottom line.

Ha, for a moment there I thought the story was going to be about Snickers being discontinued altogether. I was about to go, "No!" .

I usually never get the king-size version of a candy bar anyway, so no loss there-it often seems the smaller versions of a candy bar tend to taste better, in my opinion. But yes, Irvine is right, "smaller" doesn't automatically mean "less calories", either.
