Some things that shouldn't go together, just do. Like peanut butter and mayonnaise (hey, don't diss it till you try it--make sure it's Miracle Whip), peanut butter and apples, and Guns and Roses.
Yesterday, I got the opportunity to volunteer at the Food and Wine Experience Expo. In return, I got free admission to the show. Boy, was it crowded. But it's fun to try different wine, tastes from various local restaurants (I had a steamed dumpling sandwich that was to die for), and interesting new gourmet items available locally and online. Two of the gourmet shops sold things that I would never have thought of, but I highly recommend trying:
Cayenne shortbread by A Gourmet Thyme. http://www.agourmetthymetoo.com/
They say "savory, not sweet." I'd actually say "sweet with a bit of heat." I had to buy some of these to share with my wonderful guy. I gave him without warning him that they have a bit of bite. The response was something like, "Mmm. Mmm. Whoah! Hey, these are spicy. Cool!"
Beer and pretzel caramels by Sweet Jules Gifts. http://www.sweetjulesgifts.com/
How can anyone not like home made caramels? Well, these aren't technically home made, but they taste like it. I might have considered putting pretzels into caramels, but beer? It's good, though.
