We artists think we are creative, but the real creativity belongs smack dab in the middle of a fancy test kitchen.
What can I be speaking about? Well, a certain pizza franchise seems to come up with another kind of pizza every week. Here I was thinking that pizza consisted of sauce, cheese and pepperoni. One minute it’s stuffed crust, the next minute it’s fancy herbs, and barbeque sauce, and even chocolate! No pizza is safe. Pizza franchises realize that variety, not oregano is the spice of life.
The creativity doesn’t stop with the last bite of crust, however. Hershey’s kisses have been around since 1907 and every time I turn around there is a new limited edition flavor. This past year I have enjoyed, candy corn, cherry cordial and coconut crème, but that is the just tip of the iceberg. I wonder, what will be next? The company creates lots of new flavors every year and you never know what’ll be nestled inside as you pull the paper to remove it’s colorful foil wrapper. When will they run out of ideas? I just saw a commercial that advertised the new seasonal flavor kiss…air. Yes, they filled this one with little holes of air. Hmmmm… could they have come to the brick wall, the cookers block, the end of the trail?
I think not, and I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to notice a sugar cookie kiss sitting under the tree waiting for Santa. After all who doesn’t love chocolate?
This will be the last "new" post for a week since I will be in the wilds of North Dakota visiting my Air Force son. I've been to South Dakota but never North Dakota so I have no idea what to expect other than--- brrrrrrr. Oh well, I'm always up for a new adventure. I've heard tell there is a Pro Rodeo event scheduled for the weekend. I can almost feel the paintings-to-be tingling at my fingertips. While I am gone I am recycling, reusing...blog posts that is. So even though there will be blog posts, I won't be here but I will surely visit you all when I get back! Gotta run, gotta pack...
Happy trails to you,
