Coffee. It's one of the few edible products in existence that, to me, is thoroughly completely and grossly deceptive, misleading, and false advertisement.
It smells amazing.
It tastes disgusting.
What other food boasts that quality?
Smells like smooth creamy heaven...
... tastes like burnt rotting tree bark?
For all that, I do actually imbibe coffee on occasion, and enjoy it. But, as my husband so often teases, I don't drink coffee, I drink coffee flavored cream and sugar (with a little Kahlua or Bailey's if it's Sunday). And this dessert ranks amongst my favorites.
Today's Zits comic accurately describes my relationship with the burnt brown brew:
So what is your relationship with coffee? Take or leave it? Can't live without it? If you drink it at all, how do you take it (black, a little cream, or dessert-like?)?
