johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

My Photo
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

candy scan - part 3

name: nestle kit kat chocolatier wine!
country of origin: japan

description: again it says chocolate but it's that same white goo again, this time with a pink tint. apparently some iron chef was involved with the creation of this foodstuff. 'odd,' you say, 'candy that tastes like wine? how can this be?' well to be honest, it's pretty good. in a way it is a mutated kit kat, with an inside filling that kind of tastes like a ladyfinger soaked in burgundy. to determine if there was any alcoholic content to this filling, i ate about 10 at once. no dice. i would say the best part of this packaging was the back of the box and the wrapper, that has a graphic directing you to their popalicious websites. it says... ' quality & trust... happy talk with nestle.' [/warmfuzzies]

candy scan - part 2

name: air crunky!
country of origin: japan

description: it says chocolate but it tastes like green tea. which is okay, but i'm not a huge green tea fan. it's pleasant enough - actually the packaging and the company's website are the real entertainment source - aside from the fact that it's named "air crunky."

candy scan - part 1

name: milky!
country of origin: japan

description: it tastes like freaking milk, doesn't it? or more precisely, solidified, condensed milk. the graphics clearly show that spritle has become a transvestite and has spiraled to the depths of hocking his image for girlie sweets. how the great have fallen.
