Food That Should Exist.

Or if it does exist, should find its way to my doorstep.

1. Peanut butter cup frappuccinos.

 

2. New flavors of chocolate chips: raspberry (I know I’ve seen these before), mocha, triple chocolate (milk, dark, and white), ooooh… and a white chocolate chip with raspberry swirls.
And am the only person who thinks Lindt should make chocolate chips?
s’mores cookies you could create with those. Bonus points if the marshmallow bits have a graham cracker layer too. S’mores M&Ms!

4. Anyone work in M&M research & development? Because there should also be a peanut butter pretzel M&M.

And a peanut butter white chocolate.

No, really. Why is there no white chocolate?

I heart M&Ms. Have you noticed?

5. Ice cream cones made out graham crackers. I’ve wanted these ever since I fell in love with strawberry cheesecake ice cream.

6. Deep fried cake bites. Mmm. Like red velvet bites drizzled with cream cheese icing. Better yet, fried strawberry shortcake bites… little cubes of pound cake, maybe with a layer of strawberry buttercream, fried & served with strawberries & powdered sugar & whipped cream. The type of food you can only get away with eating at a summer fair.

… maybe what I’m really craving is french toast?

7. Lucky Charms marshmallows. Like… bags of just the marshmallows.
8. Chocolate-flavored heavy whipping cream. I use whipping cream in my coffee… is that weird? This would be a convenient way to make a mocha without using real chocolate.
9. French toast made with zucchini bread. Or cranberry-orange bread. Banana bread. Croissants!

10. Extra thick, extra fluffy pancakes slit open like a pita bread and stuffed with scrambled eggs & bacon.

Bonus points if shaped like baby elephants.

I’m hungry.

On average, two restaurants a week closed in the year to the end of March, including casual dining chains, as well as upmarket and independent establishments, according to the latest data from analysts CGA and corporate advisory firm AlixPartners. Graeme Smith, the managing director of AlixPartners, said he expected restaurant numbers to continue to drop throughout the year as large chains in particular slim down. There have already been high-profile closures by burger chain Byron, Jamie’s Italian, Carluccio’s, the Prezzo Group and Sir Terence Conran’s Albion restaurants, but more large chains and independents are expected to suffer. “It’s easy to say this is a crisis in casual dining,” said Peter Martin at CGA. “This is a crisis happening for everyone.” Restaurants are suffering because the fall in the value of the pound since the Brexit vote has made ingredients more expensive while staff costs have risen, partly due to increases in the minimum wage. Economic uncertainty has stalled growth in the sector just as competition has increased after a surge in openings partly fuelled by private equity investment.
