When I’m eating certain foods (the ones which get my taste buds partying like it’s 1999), I’ll try and make that food last. It might mean taking small bites out of food, making it last an unhealthily amount of time – longer than I should. Or I might just leave the best slice of meat until it’s the last thing I eat off my plate.
A roast dinner is prime example: I’ll eat the veg first, simply to get it out of the way. I like veg, but it just can’t compete with a good slice of beef can it? Imagine eating all the meat and then only having veg to look forward to, it just doesn’t work. Remaining until the end on my plate will always always be 1 spud, a Yorkshire Pudding and of course, the beef. I’ll also have left lashings of gravy on there to mop it all up with.
Beans on toast…the piece of toast which will allow most bean juice moppage will stay with me until the juicy bean goodness has ended.
Jaffa Cakes are never eaten in one…errr, I mean two bites….the chocolate comes off first and then the orange jelly is eaten (even though it leaves that little weird taste in your mouth when it’s eaten alone). Then the spongey bit gets eaten just because I’ve orphaned it and feel sorry for it – a bit like Penn without Teller or Barry Chuckle without Paul Chuckle – it’s just not cricket if it’s not paired up, one can’t go without the other.
Monster Munch flavoured Beef, Flamin’ Hot and Pickled Onion are all little pieces of maize based snack heaven. The toes (or whatever they’re supposed to be) get eaten one by one. Likewise, while we’re on crisps, them bits of Steak flavoured McCoys with loads of flavour on…put to one side until the end.
Tease them taste buds until the end.
