So I tried this Yummy Earth organic lollipop I found at Whole Foods in Texas: chili mango mambo. It sounds strange at first, and quite honestly, it tasted strange at first too. But I quickly got used to it and, even though I don’t like spicy food, I actually liked this lollipop. The sweetness of the mango was a great contrast to the fire of the chili. It was definitely unusual, but enjoyable (sniffles and all).
Yummy Earth is a company that was started by parents who wanted their kids to eat organic, safe candy free from additives, chemical colors, artificial flavors and allergens. I’ll probably be trying more of their stuff, because… the Engineer and I are officially moving to San Antonio this summer!
I want to quickly mention something else about an American restaurant chain: we had lunch at T.G.I. Friday’s in Texas, and I tried the Parmesan Crusted Chicken (reduced portion, which was still plenty). I didn’t expect much, because it’s not exactly a fancy place, and it was in the airport too, but man, that dish was good! “A sautéed chicken breast basted with Caesar dressing, then finished with a Parmesan-crust topping. Served with three-cheese tortellini tossed in spinach Alfredo sauce and a side of our fresh tomato mozzarella salad.” Certainly not lactose-free, but sooo worth the Lactaid. I really recommend this dish if you’re ever at T.G.I. Friday’s!
