The 2012 FOOD AND DRINK OLYMPICS! Watch
In this thread, post an event (category), and the following poster awards three food or drink competitors a BRONZE, SILVER AND GOLD MEDAL! Then, that poster posts the next event!!
SO LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!
SIMPLY TELL ME WHO WINS:
FAST FOOD FRIES?
Bronze: Tesco's own
(I don't feel too much difference between them though... Maybe it's just me!?)
LUNCHBOX CHOCOLATE BARS
Getting one of these is like JACKPOT.
SILVER MEDAL: TUNNOCKS CARAMEL LOG.
Wafer, caramel, chocolate, coconut... Sexy!
BRONZE MEDAL: FOX'S ECHO.
What the knockoff Aero Biscuit WISHES it was.
HOW ABOUT MEDALLISTS IN:
SILVER: Maltesers (always pleasing)
Medals for: Cadbury dairy milk varieties?
Silver = Dairy Milk Caramel
Bronze = Dairy Milk Bubbly?
I only ever eat the first two though
Silver: asda all butter
Bronze: oat so simple!
2. Chilli heatwave
3. Cool original
Just the simple, comforting standard that all over McCoys go by!
SILVER: Salt and Vinegar
A close second to the ready salted, another all time classic!
BRONZE: Chicken flavour.
A good competitor, but not quite up to the first or second places!
OLYMPIC MEDALISTS OF: Sponge cakes.
GOLD: COCONUT SPONGE.
As a massive coconut fan, sweet coconut icing, shredded coconut and light vanilla sponge is heaven
SILVER: CADBURYS SWISS GATEAU
Like a Swiss roll done on its side, cadburys chocolate cream, then coveted in more cadburys chocolate? Frickin y'whaaa??
BRONZE: VICTORIA SPONGE
There's a reason the simple jam and buttercream spongewich works, it's a simple classic.
MEDALLISTS FOR: CHICKEN AT MCDONALDS?
SILVER: Grilled Chicken Salad. A healthy choice, at Mcd's? Noooo way. Way. And tasty too.
BRONZE: Chicken burger. A lovely change from the beef burger, and cleaner tasting too I feel.
MEALALISTS FOR SNACKS THAT HAVE SALT ON?
It has to be said. A salted potato crisp is just awesome, and deserves the gold here. Boring answer or not, it's the RIGHT answer.
SILVER MEDAL: PRETZELS.
Like Crisps got it on and had a baby with Bagels, Pretzels are little crunchy knots of salty malty munch.
For when the waistband is feeling too tight to eat my aforementioned medallists, popcorn is the hero. NOT CINEMA STYLE though, home-popped. It gives crunchy salty awesome without all that pesky evil fat going on ma badunkadunk.
MEDALLISTS FOR: FOOD THAT GETS YOU DISGUSTINGLY MESSY BUT IS DELICIOUS ALL THE SAME?
Silver: A baguette. I tried to eat one on the train and my my, one cannot do so elegantly. Crumbs EVERYWHERE. Filling EVERYWHERE. Condiment EVERYWHERE. By the end I looked as though I had emerged from some bread-based apocolypse.
Bronze: Broth/Soup/Pot noodles Even if I manage to get a spoonful/forkful into my mouth successfully, I tend to splash it when I reload
Medallists for things in the realm of ice cream <3
The ultimate quality of the purest form of ice cream, these are ice cream, and nothing but ice cream. But each take a unique approach; mackies has a milkiness that lends to an extraordinary light whip; Haagy focuses on the vanilla and a more fudge-like thickness, and Cornish has a buttery richness unparalleled in decadence. Elementally perfect vanilla ice cream proves you're a master in the field; something even Ben and Jerrys and Carte D'or fail in.
SILVER: WALLS MAXIBON.
Half is a biscuit and nut Magnum. Half is a Soft Cookie Sandwich. Filled with rich choc chip vanilla, this is having every Magnum, feast and more in one!!
BRONZE: MR WHIPPY 99.
Noatalgia goggles or not, doused in monkeys blood, flake stabbed in the flank and obligatory dribble down your fingers, this just misses out on being placed higher due to being SEAGULL BAIT!
MEDALLISTS FOR... BATTERED FOOD?
2. Onion rings
BRONZE: Ready Salted
SILVER: Chicken Bake
BRONZE: Steak Bake
BRONZE: Ham and pineapple. (I don't care if everyone hates it!)
Fancy, difficult to execute, delicious.
SILVER: MCDONALDS BIG BREAKFAST.
I don't care the egg is like a placemat and the sausage is a coaster. It tastes.... Delicious.
BRONZE: SQUARE SAUSAGE ON SCOTTISH MORTON ROLL WITH BROON SAUCE.
MEDALLISTS FOR... TYPES OF DAIRYLEA DUNKERS?
The one we all remember first trying, with breadsticks and trying to ration out the cheese dip and failing every time.
SILVER: Garlic sticks.
Crispy, with a whole in the middle so if you do it right you can get the cheesey goodness into the middle of the stick. Mmm.
BRONZE: The ones with the circular crackers (can't remember the official name for the life of me.)
Brilliant, a bit different and a great taste. The only reason not higher because the circular shape of the crackers make it difficult to scoop out the remain swipe of cheese.
MEDALISTS OF: Cereals
