  1. Hey Marvo!
    First of all: Thanks again for this compilation of really good and interesting food related stories! 🙂

    Second: I really love the picture. Where do you got it from? Or is it “selfmade”!? 🙂

    Cheers!

      1. OMG… Marvo… that’s embarrassing… -.-
        I clicked on the picture and saw it was hosted on flickr, but thought it was the impulsivebuy account… (though there is none right?)…

        Thanks for your reply! I promise next time i use the internet with eyes open 😉

  2. Also, Salt & Straw is omega level hipster ice cream. Ben & Jerrys looks like Walmart brand by comparison.
