Honey, Let Me Be Your Salty Log

What: Pearson's Salted Nut Roll (King Sized)
When: May 8, 2008
Where: Milwaukee, WI
Cost: Unknown

I know that I should be approaching everything I plan to review with an open mind, but sometimes the name, picture or very idea of some foods make them sound so gross that they will languish for weeks under my bench in the van. Unopened and often smushed, these unlucky items are what I turn to when I am hungry, bored and too lazy to go out wandering amongst the local riff raff in search of a more palatable meal.

It doesn't help that local food offerings are often dauntingly hard to find or ridiculously portioned. It was a good burrito, but three straight meals of burrito are too many.

Milwaukee was fun, but I found myself hanging out in the dressing room by myself (for once) with nothing to do. So I dug around in my purse and found this huge Salted Nut Roll.

It was made of nougat and covered in peanuts, with a thin layer of caramel in between to bind them together. After eating a few bites I realized that I was actually really enjoying it.

Thanks to Dave for buying this, and Staci for recommending it and giving me the courage to try it.

I hope you'll be savouring some Aussie-style gas station treats when you're here in a couple of weeks? I'll be seeing you in Brisbane and am a little bit excited!

Hey great blog. It is very funny. I didnt get to see the concerts as I was in another town. But I'm enjoying the myspace all the same.

Hey I'm missing the reviews Holly!

Nothing weird in Australian gas stations? No Kanagaroo Jerky? koala pepperettes?

What a brilliant idea for a blog-- my friend Hannah and I are now huge fans.
