Quick note for overseas readers, just in case - a George Foreman is essentially a grill.
This actually dates back to Easter in Rockville, MD - all the easter bunnies were on super sale, especially the Palmer white chocolate flavored bunny. Wait. White Chocolate Flavored? Uh Oh. A quick look at the ingredients reveals,
"Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Palm Kernel Oil and/or Palm Oil), Whey, Lactose, Skim Milk, Soy Lecithin, Vanillin, Artificial Colors (Blue #1, Blue #2, Red #40, Yellow #5, Yellow #6 & Red #3). May contain Peanuts/Nuts.”
Reading this scathing review about the regular chocolate version reveals that cocoa is fourth down the list of ingredients - even in the chocolate version, it's in there for color rather than flavor. I'm making a face just thinking about it.
Actually, that's not the grossest thing we melted - check out Quax. Full title: Quax Hollow Milk Flavored. Here's the ingredients,
"Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Palm Kernel and/or Palm Oil), Whey, Lactose, Skim Milk, Soy Lecithin, Colors (Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Blue 1, Blue 2, Red 40 & Red 3), Vanillin."
They're really shiny out of the box - they look more like a plastic rubber ducky than something edible, and when they melt down they turn white and then blacken and it's really just terrible.
I should qualify all this by saying, John wanted to test shooting high-speed footage with his new hi-def camera. Man, that was a weird day.
