Just as I suspected.
Dan was happy that Tia sent along a mini pack of Aplets and Cotlets ("Apple and Apricot Confections with Crunchy Walnuts") in her box o' snacks. This is because I do not like them, so it was the one thing in the box he knew I would give to him outright.
I've already mentioned my dislike of these somewhat gelatinous - yet crunchy - and powdery cubes, so it would be boring to go into all that again. I thought it would be more fair to get the other side of the story. This is no exaggeration of our interview:
(Snackreligious): Dan, what is it you enjoy about Aplets and Cotlets?
(Dan): Ummm...That's a good question. [long pause]. I'm sure it will come to me.
(SR): Do you think it will come to you within the next few minutes?
(D): No. No I don't.
(SR): I rest my case.
Okay, so maybe that was boring, too. But still.
