Cuberdons – Steve’s Weird Food for Belgium

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

Steve: I know when you mentioned it you were mostly thinking about things that still had their eyeballs and toenails and such, but life can’t be all offal, so here’s what I came up with for Belgium:


These are an odd sort of candy – it’s hard to tell the scale here, but they’re about an inch tall, and dark purple. I asked one of the guys who worked at the hostel in Bruges about them and he wasn’t really able to describe them at all. I could tell he thought they were really good though, since the best he could come up with was “If you see them, eat them!

The outsides are a thick crust of sort of leathery sugar, and the insides are a goopy mess of vaguely berry-flavoured syrupy sugar. As you might suspect, they are not exactly tart. They’re not unpleasant, but given that one could expend one’s non-essential Belgian calories on chocolate, I’m a bit at a loss as to why they even exist. I’ve still got one or two left, which tells you how underwhelming they really are. Maybe I should mail them back to the guy in the hostel in Bruges.

I like how Steve gets his own category of posts dedicated to the mission he gave you.

Those candies look hideous. You can see the chemical yuckiness oozing out of them. Oh wait, that's the sugar goop oozing out. Eeeeeewwwwwwww.

I didn't have any set criteria for you when I gave you the task...I think that Cuberdons fit the bill...(mail me one when you send the computer)
