A delicious knock-off could be a victimless crime...
Anybody else remember those "Designer Imposter" fragrances on sale all over the place in the 80s?
It's a tenuous connection, but I couldn't help but think of them after eating what's pictured above. This is a snack of which I'd like to create an imposter.
I also couldn't help but think of David Lynch's Blue Velvet. Don't they sort of look like severed ears?
I really do think I (or anyone) could make these at home. They're chocolate covered dried banana chips with a layer of peanut butter inside. The best ones are thick enough to be crunchy, but thin enough to sort of melt away as you chew them. I'll let you know if I try to DIY these guys. "If you like Confectious, You'll Love Our Chocolate Severed Ears!" (slogan needs work).
Or, you know, I may just stay lazy and buy some more at Whole Foods.
