Coyoty eats Sour Watermelon Peeps (so you don’t have to).

“Ingredients: Sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, fumaric acid, citric acid, pectin, contains less than 0.5% of the following: Natural and artificial flavor, Yellow #5 Lake, Red #40, Yellow #5 (tartrazine), potassium sorbate (a preservative), Blue #1 Lake, Blue #1, carnauba wax. Gluten free.” I don’t see any watermelon.

They taste like they look, very artificial and as unnaturally flavored as they are colored.

Fumaric acid is used to make them sour. It’s produced in bacteria, fungi, lichen, Iceland moss, and human skin that’s exposed to sunlight. If you don’t have these Peeps, you might get the same satisfaction by going out in the sun naked and licking yourself.

Carnauba wax is used as a car wax as well as a food additive. It’s a floor wax. It’s a dessert topping. It’s a pill and candy coating. It’s a furniture polish. It makes things shiny. It makes things that aren’t good enough to eat look good enough to eat.

Conical Cookies


Almond cookie, lemon cookie, and ginger cookie. From the Barnes-Franklin Gallery at Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.

Using a computer monitor for lighting again, I found the green tinge backlighting the shot complements and contrasts the colors and makes them stand out.

Coyoty eats shepherd’s pie with Irish brown bread.

At Wood -n- Tap in Rocky Hill, CT.


“A casserole of ground beef, onions, carrots, peas and corn topped with whipped potatoes. Served with brown bread.”

When I asked for butter, they brought me what I’d call “chunky” garlic butter: melted butter with crushed garlic chunks. The brown bread dunked in it was too good to describe. The whipped potatoes had pieces of corned beef and chives.


Deep dish crème brûlée with rich chocolate at the bottom and a sliced strawberry on top. “This creamy custard explosion tantalizes the taste buds with our own take on a French classic dessert. With a bottom line of chocolate ganache, this after dinner experience is truly delicious.”

Coyoty eats blueberry Turkish delight.

Made in Turkey by Usas. Purchased at Tangiers in Hartford, CT.

Even though it’s blueberry flavored, the color is more of a sea green. The taste is like floral blueberry. I didn’t know blueberry could be floral, but that happens with Turkish delight.
