@jmrobinett@mossygreen Hey, i thought giphy thought i was special! Oh well, I’ll have to get my self-esteem boost elsewhere. On a side note, i find this gif kinda creepy, the way the chorus line marches up into view like a gang of automatons or something. I wondered if it was from a movie, i need to plan for my next Halloween streaming binge.
@ircon96@jmrobinett It’s from Top Hat, and the end of the number is literally him pretending to shoot them all one by one with his cane, so while it’s not Halloween-y as such, it definitely reads as creepy today.
PS Of COURSE you’re special, how many people get weird Fred Astaire gifs?
@mossygreen Thanks, I’ll have to add that to my unending watchlist! I’m woefully underinformed about Fred Astaire numbers, Irving Berlin, and musicals in general, especially pre-WWII, apparently. That clip was very entertaining, although i agree, the finale definitely has a different tint to it now, in light of the sickeningly quotidian incidence of mass shootings these days!
@katbyter@troy Yeah I was disappointed with the Brookside once I realized what they really were (and were not). Overall they were Meh! So if today’s product is better than Meh, that’s not very Meh-diocre at all.
Appreciate the option to mix dark and light chocolate. Mehtizens usually complain when you have to buy all of one. So I’ll just be a pain and complain that I’d like to pick fruit flavors. Don’t like chocolate with apricot.
I’m not the greatest mathemat-ician, but I noticed the 90oz & the 5.6Lbs. Well, the packets shown are 70g x .0353=.248+oz & that’s close to ¼oz, so 4 pkts would equal close to 1oz. That .means ya gotta have 90x4, or 360 packets to make 90oz of your choice of Frookits. So, tell me where my math is off, and where does 36 fit into the fn equation¿? I wanna buy these for the Probiotic benefits, but I would like to get what I pay for!! I just bought 100 Gal of damn Propane, so I ain’t in the best of moods!!
@OutbackJon, Okay, Thanks, for setting me straight. I just couldn’t figure out where I was going wrong. That’s what happens as ya get old, take medications, then wake up after midnight & try to do a bit of math. LOL,…My Bad!!
@mwoody450 Besides, they all have Confectioner’s glaze to seal them, and give them their shine. This material is a resin secreted by the female lac bug, which is collected, purified, and used for a multitude of purposes. It is also known as shellac.
So these, and many other similar shaped individual candies on the market are not vegan, solely because they are coated with confectioner’s glaze…
Just got our Frookits and that was my Meh.com maiden voyage. They’re delicious! If they’re all as good as the apricot ones I’m fully onboard. They’re going in everyone’s Christmas stocking. Pleased with the quick shipping, too. Meh gets an A for effort!
Received my order of Frookits Dark Chocolate Covered Fruit today. Dug into the Cherry first and loved it!! I am very impressed with the quality and taste of these. Looking forward to getting more and sharing them with others.
I got mine and they are really good! The apricot is my favorite though I did find a little piece of a pit or something, thankfully I didn’t bite down hard on it. That would’ve been funny, considering I didn’t buy the corn snacks do to tooth crackin’ fears.
The packaging had some Arabic and when I Googled the name “فروكتس” a different product came up… so I’m taking a wild guess that these couldn’t be imported due to a trademark conflict and that’s how Meh ended up with them??
