Thompson & Morgan’s TomTato Tomato Potato Plant

You say tomato, I say potato. Thompson & Morgan says TomTato.

What does it all mean? Well, as others have pointed out, this means that the TomTato is a ketchup and fries plant. It is a tomato plant grafted on to potato roots. It’s called the TomTato and it’s available from Thompson & Morgan.

It’s okay if you want to call the whole thing off.

Twinkies Tell The Truth

Twinkies: "The Sweetest Comeback In The History Of Ever"

Twinkies are back and this time they mean it. It is being reported that the iconic snack cake will have a shelf life of 45 days. Hostess Brands recently went through reorganization and it appeared that the fabled snack was in trouble. But you can’t keep a good sponge cake down. Or let it expire.

Somehow, without changing much (or any) of the 37 ingredients that go into a Twinkie, the shelf life has been increased from 26 days to 45 days. The new Hostess company says they still won’t last forever, but… yeah, right.

To participate in “The Sweetest Comeback In The History Of Ever” just visit your local grocery store. Twinkies are set to reappear on July 15th.

Missing Corn Syrup

Corn syrup often gets overlooked in the pantry. Although Karo, the corn syrup people, have issued a press release containing sweet recipes, they seemed to have missed a good opportunity. Not only are the associated photos reminiscent of faded 70s cookbooks, but they are small and not at all appetizing. (Clicking on photo will not enlarge.)

Press release follows. With bonus chocolate ice cream recipe (and photo). There would be a link to their website, but they seemed to have missed that one too. Ouch. Enjoy… assuming you remember what Karo corn syrup looks like.
