    I always have ketchup on hot dogs! Or chicken dogs as the case may be these days. And I eat marshmallows almost every night. :(

    The lofthouse cookies aren't worth the calories and the icing sucks so the one time I bought some, I just ended up eating around the outside edge of the cookies and threw the part with any icing away.

    And scrambled eggs - ketchup is awesome. Maybe it would make the cookies in the OP a bit better too? :D

    Ketchup on eggs is great. But gotta love ketchup on mac and cheese.

    I prefer salsa on eggs

    I once ate at a trendy restaurant where Green Eggs and Ham was on the menu. The last item in the brunch section. Eggs and jambon de Paris smothered in salsa verde. The concept was better than the eating.

    I sometimes see that dish name at local (Chicago) brunch places. I've never tried one.

    At a place I've gone to (not especially trendy, just a local place near where a friend lives), this is the description:

    "Green Eggs n' Ham -- egg whites, basil pesto, smoked ham, scallions, spinach, pea sprouts; rosemary hash browns"

    Aspic (kholodets, zalivnoe. etc.)?

    ETA: If that's what it is, a hard "no" from me. (I have no idea whether I like it or not, but I've been vegetarian for 45+ years now.)

    Yup. Not vegetarian but hard "no" from me as well, btw.

    I'd probably like the aspic.

    Mortadella is the respectable variant of Bologna which is properly Italian. And if you google fried mortadella, it is a thing for sandwiches.

    These cookies look like they were made by angels.

    As a non-American I don't even know what this is. Candy corn? Is it corn covered with candy like a toffee apple?

    Consider yourself lucky to never had this 'candy'...it's just terrible..sugar, corn syrup, confectioner's glaze, salt, dextrose, gelatin, sesame oil, artificial flavor, honey, yellow 6, yellow 5, and red 3. It also contains gelatin and the coating on top is made from lac-resin, an insect secretion from lac bugs found in Asia...yummy

    Bologna, there's a food for ya. Fried, it's good.

    I love fried bologna, have it every 2 or 3 years. I bought a can of chicken bologna out of curiosity. Haven’t opened it yet.

    And it's part of a larger class of candy called "Mellocremes" (sometimes "Mellowcremes") that include equally unlikeable tiny flat-bottomed/big-stemmed pumpkins, bicolor Christmas bells, and much much more.

    One of my former rowing coaches loved these so much we called her "Coach Mellocreme". :lol: She can have 'em.

    And yes, they're not vegetarian. And you forgot to metion the carnauba wax that's in some of them.

    My wife and daughter buy these nasty things every year around Halloween... not sure if they really like them or if they are doing it to hassle me (since they know I can't stand them)...

    I haven't had them as an adult but I always liked candy corn as a kid.
    Not the pumpkins etc though.
