Phone Booth Score

You've heard of a ground score, right? When you find something neat on the ground (ex: money, a crossword puzzle, train ticket to Peru, etc.) Well, the "score" concept can be applied to other locations as well—pocket score (finding something in your pocket you had forgotten about or that maybe you didn't even put there), public transportation score, etc. Well, this weekend at the farmers' market in Port Townsend, I had myself quite the phone booth score.

Have you tried Baconnaise? I haven't yet either, but the slogan alone has me extra curious: "The ultimate bacon flavored spread". Sounds like a pretty freaking good idea to me. Anyway, I found this sealed container of Baconnaise in a phone booth in Port Townsend and was forbidden from trying it while under a friend's roof (because the use by date was 3 months ago and the ingredients contain egg yoke). So now I am just waiting for the right "sandwich, salad, dip, sauce, chicken, fish, or fries" to come along so I can give it an initial try. I'll keep you posted.

(P.S. Dear animal loving friends: it's "kosher and even safe for vegetarians"!)

Thank you Amanda for getting to the real question here. And to answer your question, I just had a turkey, lettuce, tomato, cheese sandwich slathered in baconnaise and the verdict is...meh. The taste is more like bac~os* rather than real bacon. In my opinion, the flavor is a little too strong, but not bad. The extra flavor is nice, but it isn't something I'd demand on all my sandwiches. As for the expiration issue, I'm still alive, but the next 6 hours will speak to whether the use-by date is merely a suggestion or a hard and fast rule.

I finally tried this, despite everything in my being that told me it would be disgusting. Well, it isn't disgusting. It's not great, but it's surprisingly better than I thought it would be. Eric found that mixing it with tuna makes an interesting sort of smoked salmon substitute.
