    Mrs. Lovett’s pies ?

    Ladies and gentlemen,
    May I have your attention, please?
    Are your nostrils aquiver and tingling as well
    At that delicate, luscious ambrosial smell?
    Yes they are, I can tell.
    Well, ladies and gentlemen,
    That aroma enriching the breeze
    Is like nothing compared to its succulent source,
    As the gourmets among you will tell you, of course.
    Ladies and gentlemen,
    You can't imagine the rapture in store —
    Just inside of this door!
    There you'll sample
    Mrs. Lovett's Chinchilla pies,
    Savory and sweet Chinchilla pies,
    As you'll see.
    You who eat pies,
    Mrs. Lovett's Chinchilla pies
    Conjure up the Chinchilla treat pies
    Used to be!

    Look at what I found this morning at my local Frys grocery store.

    More importantly, folks, look what I found in our local Amish market on the east coast .... BOOYAH!!! Year of the Pretzel and perhaps year of the chinchilla???

    I need to get some of those pretzels, you guys have me convinced that I am not living if I am not eating them

    #1161 1 year ago

    #1162 1 year ago

    I found the pretzels near me today. They're good, but they're not blowing my mind.

    If you eat an entire bag, you can play flawless pinball. GC’s on all your pins!

    I've had a few inquiries and messages about shipping and deliveries times

    I’m thinking my SS gift is lost at this point it was sent so damn long ago. I’ll give it a few more days and then I’ll send something else out.

    So we opened gifts as a family this morning and my SS did an awesome job! In addition to the two 5-hour play cards to St. Paul/Hudson Tap I mentioned before, I also got a couple of new board games to play during quarantine - Game of Thrones and Doctor Who - as well as three movies to watch in my theater! (Distrixt 9, Chappie, and Elysium). On top of that, I got some Stern swag - mostly game posters, but also a GoT promo sticker! I feel like my SS is telling me to buy a Game of Thrones pin now....!

    Thank for so much! It's awesome getting cool gifts that I dodnt ask for - brings back the magic of Christmas for me. (I also had more gifts than my daughter because of the Pinside SS and the BoardGameGeek SS, so that was fun! Lol)

    Also want to give a huge shout-out to Saltimbanco. I made a comment in this thread that I loved Coffee Crisp and was sad you can't get it in the States. He sent me a PM offering to send me some. I opened the package this morning and it's an entire CASE of them! Yum! There are a lot of awesome people in the world. Thank you.

    My cats thank you too - we haven't been able to throw the box away because the three of them literally take turns sleeping in it and get mad when we take it offb the table! Lol

    Not often I eat chocolate bars but Coffee Crisp is my favorite. Throw a couple in the freezer. So good. Them and Kit Kats frozen are my go to's

    #1186 1 year ago

    Nothing here yet from my SS.
    We had a pretty good dump of snow here.
    Pretty sure everything is backed up.

    Merry Christmas secret Santa! I received the box last week and anxiously await to open it tomorrow.

    [quoted image]

    It’s hard to compare. Dots are seasoned and Snyder’s are not.... Snyder’s are much crunchier, while the Dots are bite sized. It’s like comparing tortilla chips to cool ranch Doritos... yeah, okay that one actually swayed me to Dots’ side. Cool ranch are way better than plain!❤️

    Pinside SS 2020, you’ve crushed it. I opened my final gifts tonight after having saved them for an extra couple days to try to draw out the fun. I got a custom pinball shirt with a super cool pinball patent for our game room. Thank you so much for making this year extra fun!! If you’re ever in our neck of the woods, please come play some pinball with us. Merry Pinsmas!!
