OK...yesterday's rant is evidence of why drunk-blogging is a very bad idea... And while I am thinking about writing an eloquent ode to running at some point in the near future, it's not quite jelled yet.

Luckily, as I was trolling my fave-blogs tonight, I came across this on Run Jojo Run (hooray...salvation for us all!). My biggest issue is that I had to figure out how to do a strikethrough on Blogger... Let's just say that I had to edit in html (not fun). If there's an easier way...please, someone let me know.

Thank goodness there's not a lot that I wouldn't eat (behave yourselves!)...

Anyway, onto the sweetness...

  1. I don't know what "joe froggers" are.

  2. I couldn't believe it when I saw Joe Froggers on this list!!!! Someone from New England DEFINITELY made it!

    Joe Froggers are cookies that are big and round like lily pads. The origin is in Marblehead, Massachusetts (my home town!) - a small fishing/sailing community north of Boston.

    The Legend of Joe Froggers: A couple known as Aunt Crease and Black Joe lived at the edge of a pond in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Joe had fought in the Revolution as a young man. On election night, they would open their house, which on occasion was also a local tavern, and serve grog. Joe would play the fiddle and Aunt Crease would cook.
    One of her specialties was a molasses cookie the size of a modern-day salad plate. She made them for fishermen, who found they stored well in barrels during long sea voyages.
    In the early 1800s, the election took place at the end of May, a time when frogs were peeping in the pond, and by association the cookies were called Joe's Froggers. Over time the possessive was dropped, and the name today is Joe Froggers.

    And one last fun fact...I learned to ice skate and spent many winters on Black Joe's pond :)

    Ahhh....memory lane....

  3. I've had a Charlotte Russe at a Charlotte Russe store opening. :)

    Now I'm craving desserts...

  4. giggling at the drunk blogging. Im soososososo glad that there was not internet when I was in my heyday in college. it would have been badugly.
    twitter? email? blogging?
    *I cringe at the thought*

  5. Yeah I was clueless on Joe Froggers myself LOL

  6. I learned about joe froggers...I learn sumfin on blogs all the time.

    About the crossing off it is an html pain in the you know what, but looks cool LOL!

    now i am off to eat sweets

  7. Well whaddayaknow, I thought Charlotte Russe was named after a person, not a confection, too. My daughter even worked there during summers and never knew that.

    You certainly have an adventurous sweet tooth!

  8. Still don't know what a whoopie pie is...and not sure I'd eat something named that...unless of course, its covered in sugar, chocolate and/or whipping cream.

  9. you must be very adventurous to have crossed out only 1 item. The bee sting confection gets me - i wonder what that is, honey and chiles?

  10. There's a lot on this list that I don't know!

  11. I don't know what half of those things are! Man, I need to get out more!

  12. There are a few things on the list that I don't know of, but if it is sweet or baked I have probably eaten it and to great excess.

    Hope your end of the semester is going well. Mine sucks the big one.

  13. If you ever come to Atlanta, I'll take you to get the best Tres Leches Cake ever!

  14. You haven't lived until you have had a deep fried twinkie or snickers.
