I think that's the name of the stuff TB's twisty things came from, sure. I'm not sure I'd actually call TB's whatever they are churros, though. Like, I've had fairly close to authentic/home-made/whatever churros before and there's no similarity outside of ingredients in a very general sense.

They don't even label them churros, so no, but I guess there's a relation.  They're literally "cinnamon twists", very thin crunchy twists of rice/wheat fried flour dunked in sugar and cinnamon.  Not my thing.

And yeah cinnamon is fine!  Halloween is my favorite holiday after all, I just don't like things that are too sweet.  My housemate made some low-sugar lemon squares yesterday and I was very hesitant until I tried one.  It actually tasted like tart lemons instead of a cloying sweetness explosion!  That was fun.

On a different note:  When I mentioned this Taco Bell discussion (it's my favorite fast food and y'all keep calling it literally garbage  :'() he supported me with a fascinating rant about snobby Europeans, Brexit, and how I should reply with pictures of protesters to show y'all what's what.
so
that's a thing I got to smile and nod at today
thanks fam
i just want to eat shitty veggie-heavy burritos instead of shitty burgers and oversalted potato slices with sugar crystallizing in the tea

edit: and it may have been 7am after a night of drinking and DND, but I threw shade at Australia over this, so it's not like my hands are clean of that bullshit

I was helping some family members mill tomatoes to make tomato sauce by adding to the food processor, one of the people wouldnít listen to me when I told them the food processor was full, so now tomato fife is leaking out of it because they didnít listen, and the one who did it blames that they didnít know, even though they were near the one who told both of us how to tell if itís full to prevent overflow. We worked on cleaning up. There is a reason retaliation n tasks were delegated to certain people, so mistakes like this wouldnít happen

Well, last time I ate at Taco Bell, I nearly died of food poisoning. The times before that the tortillas tasted like they were wrapped in plastic, the meat had a in-the-fridge-for-a-week waxy greasiness, and the vegetables were simply missing.


When I said that Taco Bell food was borderline poison, I was speaking literal truth.

Taco Bell appears to be like spaghettios.  They were awesome when I was a kid, but as a grown adult they taste like garbo

I can't really comment, I've basically been raised on fast food and other unhealthy stuff filled with preservatives and artificial coloring,

I could never live off Soylent or whatever meal replacement the kids are using these days.
You know that stuffs made for people right.


Also I don't see whats so bad about Taco Bell, I mean its not the best but its cheaper than getting the authentic stuff and its better than McDonald's.

Tacos are made with tortillas, and yes, home-made ones ARE the best ones.

(The place I linked the menu to makes their own tortillas. There's a reason why despite being a tiny place, it gets 5 stars.)

The US is the strange one, vis-a-vis "Jelly"

Pretty much every other english speaking country calls what we call "Jelly", "Jam."

Here in the US, "Jam" has a special meaning; It's got bits of fruit in it, where Jelly does not. In the UK (and most english speaking countries), both are "Jam".   
In the US, we take it even further, and have an ADDITIONAL name for the stuff, if it also has the seeds in it. "Preserves".  Again, In the UK and co, "Jam".

The reason USA is the odd one out is that Jell-O is actually a trademarked name, but it spread to be the generic name. In the rest of the English speaking world we never had "Jell-O" so the name stayed as the generic jelly, which is a name going back to at least the 1700s. The hyphen in the term "Jell-O" is the giveaway that the name itself was derived from the word "jelly" in the first place.

Which is nothing I did not already know:




For me, that stuff is called "Jello".  (It's the major name brand for the product, which gained traction as the name for the desert, even though the desert is FAR older than the jello company. Jello made it easy to make, with the convenient "Add hot water then cool" packets, which transformed it from a thing only very rich people who could afford a dedicated cooking staff ate, into a commodity dessert.) I suppose more properly, it's a "Gelatin dessert". But everyone just calls it Jello.  "Jelly" is the stuff you put on toast.  For you, that's "jam."

This "Same word, very different meaning" leads to utter disgust when the topic of "Peanut butter and jelly" comes up.  Americans are like "Oh yeah, I ate that all the time as a kid" and people in the UK go "What the bloody hell is wrong with those Yanks?"

:P
