Brownie Batter

Writing the review of the Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough Bites reminded me of a funny brownie batter story that happened to me a few years back. While not really about candy, I think it’s worth sharing, so here goes:

My wife loves to bake and she knows my fondness for licking the bowl when she bakes so whenever she makes cookies, cake, brownies, etc. she offers the bowl to me for a good licking. On this day, she was baking brownies and being the loving wife she is, she offered the bowl to me. For some reason I’m not sure of now, I declined.

She set the bowl next to the sink and I went on my way. After a few minutes, I reconsidered and decided I did want to have some brownie batter. I went to the bowl, grabbed the mixing spoon, and scooped up a big mouthful of brownie batter. Seconds later, a nasty taste hit my mouth and I spit the contents of my mouth back into the bowl and yelled in disgust. The taste was extremely acrid and a little….soapy? My wife turned around and asked what was going on and I tried to explain to her while I was spitting out batter and trying to rinse my mouth. I had no idea what was happening.

She started smiling/giggling and told me that since I had said no, she had squirted a bunch of Dawn clear dishwashing detergent into the bowl. I had eaten a big mouthful of chocolatey dishwashing detergent. No wonder! That was the most vile taste I think I had ever had and it took me hours to get rid of the taste. The funniest thing was that it caused my mouth to salivate uncontrollably. I held my head over the sink with my mouth open and saliva just poured out of my mouth. We had some good laughs about that for days to come but at the time I didn’t think it was all that funny. Ok, I did think it was a little funny – even when my mouth was burning and the saliva was pouring.

    When I was a kid, my brother and I put some Tabasco sauce into our cat’s mouth, and she started salivating like a garden hose. We were freaked!

    An ex-boyfriend of mine once cooked rice in a pot that wasn’t rinsed out after washing. It was one of the worst things that I have ever tasted…well, other than that vomit flavored Jelly Belly jelly bean.
