You know what's the worst? Time-exclusive food availability. For example, I got this candy cane hot chocolate from Second Cup last Christmas. It is absolutely delicious, either on its own, or in coffee, or in homemade Oreos, and it's only available around Christmas time. I've been rationing it carefully, hoping it could last until next December, when I could stock up on on 10 or 20 cans of it. But despite my best efforts to keep it out of my mouth (that'swhatshesaid), now it's almost gone, and what the fuck am I supposed to drink until winter? It's going to be a cold, dark, disgusting remainder of the year.
The other excrutiating example of time-exclusive food is, of course, McDonalds.
Big Macs and greasy french fries are okay, but only because they kinda sorta remind me of McDonalds' breakfast. Hash browns, breakfast burritos, Egg McMuffins, or the mighty all-in-one food product, the McGriddle, it doesn't get much better than that. Yet the best McDonalds has to offer is only available until 11:00 at the latest. Yes yes, I'm only falling for the psychological principle of scarcity that sold Cabbage Patch Kids and the Wii; people want what's rare or hard to obtain. There's also probably a bit of cognitive dissonance going on; I went through the effort of waking up before noon for this? Well it must taste delicious then.
Even so, sometimes I'd love me some McGriddles in the afternoon.
Here is a picture. I do not know why Jessica Alba is surrounded by giant unrealistically perfect heavenly floating McGriddles, but it's the first image that comes up when you search for them in Google, and it combines four of my favourite things in the world. *fap fap fap*
