Kill/Refurb/Marry: 2015 Food & Wine Festival Foods

Kill/Refurb/Marry time! This month's blog hop topic is an obvious one - and one I've tackled before. We're choosing items from the Epcot Food & Wine Festival!

I have very deliberately not looked at what I posted last time in the hopes of keeping the past from influencing the present.

Kill: Anything with peas or grapes or cherry tomatoes or blueberries

I realize this is an extremely non-specific answer, but I must choose it, and here's why: if a F&W Festival item contains any of the above, I WILL NOT EAT IT, no matter how well-reviewed it is. I have a bizarre phobia of small round objects, and while different items create in me different levels of anxiety, none of them make me happy. Also, if anything YOU are eating contains peas or grapes especially, I am WALKING AWAY and NOT COMING BACK UNTIL YOU'RE DONE. UGH UGH UGH.

Refurb: Desserts and champagne

Back to quasi-rationality. I know I said I wasn't going to talk about last year's similar post, but can I help if I have a pretty solid memory? I'm fairly certain I picked the same thing to refurb last year, for the same reason: the desserts are lame and the champagne is too expensive. Plus you can't even get the desserts individually, which sucks if there's an item or ingredient you definitely and definitively don't want. Straighten up, desserts and champagne! You're some of my favorite things and I would much rather marry you.


Speaking of which...

Marry: Pao de queijo

ALL THE PAO DE QUEIJO ALL THE TIME. SO EXCITED DELICIOUS TO ENSUE IS IT NOVEMBER YET???


(Honorable mention to that new nitro truffle thingee from The Chew. Excited to see how that turns out.)

See ya at Wine & Dine! :D :D :D

  1. I actually really loved the dessert trio last year - it was one of my favorite things I tried. But since you mentioned you don't like blueberries I can understand why you would want to refurb it!

    1. Last year's wasn't so bad - I liked the opera cake. But this year's looks boring. :(
