QOTD 10/3: Fun size!

Postby Chef Mongo » Wed Oct 03, 2012 10:24 am

What food item (not necessarily candy) do you wish came packaged in "fun size" so you could fill your bag with it on Halloween?

For me? Chicago-style hot dogs. :)

Oh my dayum!

They're already fun-sized, but mushrooms stuffed with crab imperial.

I've always thought that name was a misnomer. It should be "where's the rest" size. Or "Tease" size.

Fun size to me is at least twice the usual :twisted:

This was always my argument! Great minds . . .

I love fun-size candy. You can have one of each and not feel nearly as guilty :wink: .

There was a comedian that did that bit on "fun size". "If this is the size of fun, then king size must be UNBRIDLED ECSTACY!"

Actually chees does come Fun Sized. There are those rectangles yousee in convenience stores and also string cheese. Would be a good treat and probably not get too many complaints from the candy seekers, as most kids do like cheese. Now I will be very happy if someone fills my ag with small portions of roquefort and brie. Have recently been nibbling on some Mimolette, which is gorgeously orange for the season.

Yeah, crappy cheese comes in "fun size."
I treated/nursed myself with brie with mushroom the other day.

My favorite food comes in "fun size." They are called shrimp. You even get a choice of different fun sizes.
