Sniglet Of The Day Oohgooze -that sugary unidentifiable ooze that comes out of fine chocolates that have been squished when someone was trying to look for their favourite fillings, or avoid the fillings they hate.

Well, I’m sure that everyone who was lucky enough to receive Valentines chocolates has most likely devoured them by now, and is looking forward to fine candies is pastel boxes to be devoured at Easter. All holiday, not even holiday chocolates, with the exception of maybe Halloween candies, have this in common. The oohgooze. That shiny, sugary liquid that spills out from the chocolate creams and truffles of chocolates that do not have labels on the bottom of their package to let you know what you might be getting into. There might be some antilixic people out there, doing their best to stay away from licorice or anisette fillings. There might be someone who just can’t get enough caramel or coconut. Once the oohgooze has been revealed, they might actually take what they were looking for, or leave it for someone who likes what they despise. The oohgooze is not really as important as what contains it. That is the reason you encountered the oohgooze in the first place. Here’s hoping that every oohgooze you encounter will be the ones you love.

Sniglet Of The DaySlopweaver (lsahp’ wee vuhr) – n. Someone who has mastered the art of repositioning the food on his plate to give the appearance of having consumed a good portion of it.

Kids have to be the best slopweavers ever. If you see their expressions of “ew, gross!” and “yuck!” and “Is my mom out of her mind to try to make me eat this?”, you just know they are going to try to do their best at slopweaving. Those bits of carrots, broccoli, peas, or whatever vegetable they can’t stand are most definitely not going to remain where they started. Sometimes not only do they do this with vegetables, but with other food items. Fish, any kinds of spicy foods, and even some desserts. Many kids do not like coconut or licorice, so they may attempt to slopweave these as well to please their parents or grandparents whom they are trying to please. At a time when portion control is out of control at restaurants and fast food outlets, it might be wise to cut back on portions of the things kids might not like to get them to eat them. It would be less of a torture for everyone to endure.

Sniglet Of The DayAntalixic (and a LIK sik) – n. One who passes over licorice jelly beans.

There are many, many people whom are antalixic. Licorice root is a wonderful herb, great for so many things, weight loss, inflammation, and all other kinds of ailments, but it has one major, MAJOR flaw. It tastes like something that was brewed in the lowest levels of Gehenna by culinary demons. These demons most likely work at the extraterrestaurants that were mentioned last week. There has to be some kind of evil design behind taking a medicinal herb and making it into one of the most vile candy flavouring agents ever created. Many kinds of candies are made from this, and the odor alone is sure to make your nose revolt when you get too close to it. An antalixic will pass over not only licorice jellybeans, but allsorts, Good ‘n’ Plenty’s, and most any other black candies, with the exception of black Jellybabies, because those are black currant-flavoured. Big difference! Not only will an antalixic pass over black candies, but most anything else that taste of licorice, even if it is made from other licorice-tasting sources, like anise or wormwood. They will pass over pizalle cookies, absinthe, Galliano liqueurs, and usually ouzo, plus other varieties of items, like anything made with fennel as well. Somehow, the Asian spice, star anise is not quite as strong, so the antalixic person won’t mind it so much in Chinese food, so long as does not overpower the other spices. If you serve any of these items to an antalixic, and they turn them down, do not be offended, because licorice is an aquired taste, and many people never aquire it. If you are not antalixic, consider yourself very lucky that you can handle this flavour that reviles so many others.
