Re: Going Veggie

Well lets see some info, all my research says there are a few differing color varieties to watermelon, it's just the pink one was more available for years. Not a cantaloupe in sight.

Have you ever had coconut ice cream? It's fabulous.
I won't rest now until I find some of this. I absolutely love coconut in just about anything. I once bought a bag of Coconut M&Ms and almost ate the whole thing in one night.

Coconut M n' M's were the stuff of legend here for a long time.. you could buy them on ebay from far away at exorbitant prices but I'd never actually seen them. And then one day they came back!! And me, who really hasn't got a sweet tooth, DID eat a whole bag of them.

If I started posting about my adventures with coconut and coconut flavour I'd go on forever.. I was drinking coconut iced tea all through the recent heat.

For coconut ice cream try good asian restaurants.

Also you can get GREAT asian deserts with coconut milk.. poured over crushed ice and fruit and beans and..

We must agree to disagree. I don't care for the flavor because of the overwhelming cantaloupe flavor.
The key word in teacake's post here is literally.

In all deference to our dear teacake, I never called it a literal genetic cross-breed. As restated in my second post, the cantaloupe flavor is what I do not like.

^You have to admit that your second post can be read either way, it doesn't clarify at all that you weren't saying it was a crossbreed. It no big deal or anything, but that's how it reads.

Re: Going Veggie

^My apologies. I thought adding the word flavor more than once made it clear. I came here for a break from reality before my surgery... upon reflection, that may not have been the best idea.

You'd love these:




The white stuff is coconut cream. They were served in a Thai restaurant. They're the best dessert ever, next to mango pancakes:

Re: Going Veggie

I'd start urbanspooning asian restaurants in your area and looking for menus. Once you have your list of coconut wonderfulness you should begin a coconut crawl. Report back, with photos.

Skywalker, wanna a sip?



teacake is right, Asian restaurants and Thai specifically for coconut thingies are a good bet.

Re: Going Veggie

Asian desserts are the best anyway! Always exciting and generally a lot less sweet.

Re: Going Veggie

And healthier, because based on real fruits, instead of tons of sugar

Re: Going Veggie

I am working my way through the explosion of asian (mostly Taiwanese) dessert places my city has to offer. I try and eat something different every time and I have yet to be anything but happy.
