Forrest Gump's friend Bubba forgot all about these!
on 9 May 2013
I bought these to take with me to an 80s concert next week. That is to say, any that escape being eaten by me before then will be going with me. Unless I eat those lucky few in the car on the way to the concert, of course. Maybe I need to buy more of these? They arrived pretty quickly and were well packed, so I've got enough time to send for more. Or I could send for a box of confectionary-related willpower instead, which would undoubtedly be cheaper. But where's the fun in that?
These taste exactly as I remembered them, and the texture is also identical to those boatfuls of sweet, spongy shrimps I used to polish off in my youth. Apparently that can only be achieved through the use of beef gelatine though, so these are not suitable for vegetarians. That's tough on them and I feel really bad for them. I know it isn't much, but I like to think I am doing my little bit to alleviate their suffering by not mentioning to any vegetarians that I know that I am currently munching through a bag of these little devils. It's a selfless act, I'm sure you will agree. The fact that I also won't be mentioning the presence of these shrimps in my life to anyone who is not a vegetarian isn't quite so selfless however - I'm just a greedy guts.
