Something New Every Day

A record of doing a new thing every day in 2011

Gums vs. Pastilles (361/365) Tuesday December 27, 2011

It’s the time of year for sitting in front of the TV and doing as little as possible, and I’ve been succeeding very well in doing that.

However I have to do something new, so I managed to do this without spending much effort yesterday in the following way.

I had a packet of what was called “pick and mix” sweets, but was actually just Fruit Gums, Fruit Pastilles and Tooti-Fruttis. First I separated the Tooti-Fruttis and “donated” them to Hilary, but I was happy as I like very much both Fruit Gums and Fruit Pastilles. They both have different techniques for savouring, but at one point I tried something extremely novel and had one of each at the same time.

I can report that this didn’t enhance the experience of either particularly, as it just tasted like having a gum and pastille at the same time. Still someone had to try it.

Just 4 days of the year left now, but I can assure you things will pick up for the last drips of 2011 :-)
