As usual we are always trend following and never trend setting. We brought you energy drinks, so now its time for Energy Bars. We wonder why you’d ever want to replace a meal, how long it takes for an energy bar to take effect and if they are just worse oatmeal cookies. Matthew and Molly judge on fuel, performance and aftertaste power. Predictably, things get dirty almost immediately. www.spilledmilkpodcast.com
The listeners spoke and… we didn’t really listen. Today we address the best and worst of crispy, cheese soaked Nachos. Toppings, cheese ratios, high school reunions and balding are all up for discussion and we also find out what cheese and underwear have in common. EXPLICIT. www.spilledmilkpodcast.com
The things we do for this show. Today we sacrifice our tongues as we travel down Hot Sauce Alley where the conversation quickly turns morbid. Matthew discovers how cool he really was as a child and Molly reveals her “50 Shades of Grey” past. www.spilledmilkpodcast.com
The stakes have never been higher as M & M examine American puddings, not to be confused with British puds. This indefinable substance grows a skin, scrambles eggs and could give us an exclusive insight into Molly’s newest project. We also play casting director for the upcoming Spilled Milk Remake. EXPLICIT. www.spilledmilkpodcast.com
Today we stir and taste non-peanut Nut Butters. Listen to scintillating conversation regarding almond butter phases during college, grease vs. sludge and nut arbitrage. We are talking buttering nuts and seeding butter while the nut aromas get to our heads.www.spilledmilkpodcast.com
After 175 episodes, we have finally selected our ideal chopsticks and feel ready to tackle Soy Sauce. We chat X-Files, cartoons, fairy tales and feigning interest while drowning our rice in The Black Ooze. Will we or won’t we be able to differentiate between high end and low end sauces? www.spilledmilkpodcast.com
Yes, we were given yet another box of foreign goodies submitted for our pleasure and judgement. Indian Junk Food is super classy although its looks, taste and smell don’t always exactly align. This is a seriously bangin box full of confusing aromatics, exuding liquids and squeaking cheese. www.spilledmilkpodcast.com
From listener Sohna:
Haldiram’s Special Soan Papdi – 250 gm: Sweet. Do not refrigerate! My mum’s favorite. Soan Papdis are kind of flaky and crumbly and can make a mess.
Haldiram’s Cham Cham: Sweet and syrupy. Messy to eat since they can drip. But good.
Kukure – Monster Paws – Funky Tomato: Just cos Kurkure rocks.
Chitale Bandhu Bakarwadi (crispy spring roll): Again, bakarwadi is one of my favorites. A really famous snack from Maharashtra, and is usually best when had freshly fried, but since that’s not an option… These are an awesome alternative, and is from one of the better known stores in Pune.
Haldiram’s Instant Pani Puri Kit: Popular street food. A few boiled potato cubes, boiled garbanzo beans and chopped onions are sometimes added in before adding the chutneys. Instructions should be provided, but if not: http://www.spicesofindia.co.uk/acatalog/Haldirams-Mopleez-Pani-Puri.html . Remember to put the stuffed puris whole in your mouth and then bite into it. That’s how they’re eaten
Nirav Fennel Seeds (Sugar Coated): Mouth freshener. Never been very fond of these, but my husband loves them. They’re usually served in lil bowls at the end of a meal in a restaurant.
Anand Baby Muruku (spicy): Muruku is a popular snack from South India (where I’m from).
Anand Jackfruit Chips: My dad used to love these. Had them with hot milky tea in the mornings.
For optimal results, your cohosts recommend bathing and basting yourself in the sizzling slurry of deliciousness that is brown butter. Be sure to hold on tight to your chemise as we encounter nutty food babies, Lynn Rossetto Kasper imitations and foaming flecks. www.spilledmilkpodcast.com
Journey into the minds of geniuses as Pat Benatar and Kenny Loggins present an ode to childhood. We packed each other a meal filled with goodies from our childhood lunch boxes where we find that baggie technology has not improved since our mothers controlled our food choices. Full of toxic chemicals, dry cookies, sweaty carrot sticks and stolen lunch items we discover Molly’s equestrian past and can only hope that someone other than Matthew gets his references. www.spilledmilkpodcast.com
As grown ups, we can eat whatever we want for breakfast. Today we grab some brooding breakfast desserts from the shelf where they have lived for who knows how long. Cake nuggets, waves of powdered sugar and sweaty glaze are all part of this complete breakfast. www.spilledmilkpodcast.com
