Episode 118: Food as Utensils

Celery straws and coconut bras. Here at Spilled Milk, we don’t shy away from the deep questions, such as “What actually constitutes a food utensil?” and “Where do Red Vines go when they die?”. Desperate times call for edible utensils.

Episode 114: Scottish Junk Food

Sons and daughters of Scotland! We are Spilled Milk. And that’s as much of Braveheart as we remember. Listener Gemma kindly sent us a box full of Scottish wafers, caramel, and absurdities. What else could we do but start chewing? Alba gu bràth! EXPLICIT.
