Foodstuff: A or B?

I saw this at Accidental Hedonist today, and it reminded me of the polls my kids do on their myspace all the time.  Except this one is all about food!  Yay!

Coke or Pepsi? Coke, but only if it’s the Mexican variety made from cane sugar and comes in a bottle.  Otherwise, I’ll take an RC Cola, also made from cane sugar.

Thick crust or thin for your Pizza? Thin, thin, thin.  Yum, yum, yum,

Rare or Well Done for your steak? Medium Rare please.  Beef should never be well done, ever, in any form.

Hot Dogs or Hamburgers? Hamburgers! I have to be in the mood for hot dogs, and they have to be the good kosher variety.  None of this Ball Park/Oscar Meyer pretend baloney dogs nonsense.

Ketchup or Mustard on your hot dog? Ketchup never belongs on a hot dog.  Any mustard should be of a spicy variety- I highly recommend Stadium Mustard, from Cleveland, OH. If you can’t get that, then a spicy, smooth deli style mustard will go nicely with the kraut and onions you should be using.

Cake or Pie? Cake.  With a great, homemade, real butter frosting.  None of this canned frosting crap.

Brownies with a fine, glossy crust, or soft cake brownies? Soft cake brownies are not brownies, they are, in fact, a soft cake.  Brownies should be dense, moist and not crumbly.

Nuts in the brownies? No.  Do not adulterate my brownies with nuts of any ilk.  I prefer my chocolate pure, thank you!

Vanilla or Chocolate ice cream? Vanilla, as it can be used as a base for so many different flavors and toppings.  If available, coffee is my second fave.  For a fun topping no one ever thinks about, try mixing chunky peanut butter with some Hershey’s syrup.  You can even heat it up a bit if you like- it’s great over a good vanilla ice cream- kicks the pants off of most chocolate & peanut butter ice creams.

Blue cheese or ranch dressing with your Buffalo wings? Please don’t make me cry.  Ranch dressing is evil.

Soup or Salad? I love soup.  Love it, love it, love it.  I wish I loved salad- it would be much better for me.

Butter on your Popcorn? Only if it’s real butter.

Pork or Beef barbecue? This is a tough one.  BBQ done right in either meat is great, but it’s harder to get beef right.  Pork is more forgiving, and more flexible with the sauce options.  I guess I’ll have to pick beef, since I love a good BBQ beef rib.  Yum.  And we’re supposed to be getting a new BBQ place here in town soon!  I hope it’s going to be good.

Coffee or tea? Tea, every morning.  Coffee is too hard on my system in the morning.  I’ll drink a cup of coffee once in a while at night with dessert, particularly if we’re enjoying baked goods.

Beer from a can or a bottle? Bottle, if draft isn’t available.  Then again, I’m not a huge beer drinker.

Oreos or Hydrox? Oreo, since I don’t think you can get Hydrox anymore.

Little Debbie or Hostess? Little Debbie- love those Swiss Cake Rolls!

Bacon or Sausage? Bacon, preferably thick cut and fully cooked- no wobbly bits.

Eggs Scrambled or Fried? Depends on what I’m having with it.  If there’s toast, fried over easy is great.  If not, scrambled is good, especially with cheese and hot sauce.

That was fun!  Do you have any to add?
