    Re: Comfort Food

    I never aquired a taste for moonpies either. At a big arts and craft show near my home they sell fried moonpies. I have heard of fried candy bars and twinkies and I really want to try those but I can't bring myself to spring for the fried moonpie.

    I just had some fried oreos a few nights ago. Dipped in chocolate - yummy!

    I want an Uncle Floyd. My aunt and Uncle world for Gulf Oil, so all we got was Gulf parafin and oil. I'm sure my dad liked getting the free oil.

    We did also get a whole bunch of "giveaways" during the Apollo missions of the lunar landing module. Gulf Gas stations were giving these models away and you had to put them together, but it was kind of cool.

    Would have been cooler had they worked at a Candy factory and not with petroleum products.

    I have never had a fried twinkie, candy bar or oreo or the new fried coke. I would like too, but I never go to the places where they sell this stuff. Probably just as well.


    Lucy and Unk, it amazes me the people I hear that won't eat grits, but love polenta. It's pretty near the same thing. I call Polenta "Italian Grits".

    Re: Comfort Food

    MRD, then you will be happy to know - I won't eat either!

    I was doing some work for a Popcorn/festival treat company - everytime I went on site to do some work - I ended up bringing home those 'tubs' of cotton candy. Heaven. But I'm glad I don't have to go there any more.

    I also spent 9 month and 25 lbs working at a vending machine company in the office. Any 'goods' that were damaged at all were left on our desks. Twinkies, ho-hos, etc. Not a place to work when you have a serious sugar demon.

    For my northern friends that's pronounced "croppy" and "brim".

    I'm coming to visit the next time you go fishing!!! Love me a fish fry and some truly GOOD hushpuppies.
    I just read a history of the Scots-Irish in the Carolinas and hushpuppies were orginally made by the scots in the colonial days in the mountains and were called "corn dodgers". The name hushpuppie came later.

    Unk, I've always called them "brim".
    Nothing beats a good fried crappie or "brim" except maybe catfish.

    But what's comfort to some may not be to others.

    I have really enjoyed this thread. It actually is helping me as I have changed my eating plan this week. I may not be able to enjoy these things right now, but talking about them is the next best thing.
