I like avocados and I like tuna, so this one seemed obvious. The fact that my coworker appeared nauseated just talking about the tuna salad didn't dissuade me in the least. I emailed her this recipe and she confirmed that this was, indeed, the exact recipe she'd used, so here goes.
Here is my inventory of goods:
The recipe had me dice the carrots, onions, and celery so I did. Then I prepared everything else, like this:
That's an F load of onions. I threw half of them away. I then mixed everything together, following the recipe. Here is the finished product:
Looks pretty true to the picture on the recipe. With such a strange combination of flavors I didn't really know what to expect, but I knew it wasn't going to taste like any tuna salad I'd ever had. My standard tuna salad consists of just tuna and Miracle Whip. I put the salad on a sandwich:
*here is where there SHOULD be a picture of my avocado tuna salad sandwich but my A-hole phone didn't save the pic*
I took a bite of the sandwich, expecting the worst. The result...? It was okay. kind of an anticlimactic ending after all that effort; I was hoping for it to either be truly terrible or delightfully delicious. It was neither. At least the pictures are nice and colorful. I think next time I would grate the carrots, forget the onions, and use less celery.
Final Grade: C
Since that was so... average, I've decided to also review a Mexican snack I found, ¡Sponch!
The box claims that this oddly-named treat is a "Marshmallow cookie with artificially flavored strawberry topping and Coconut." Being the trier-of-all-things, I bought a box. I've heard tales of Mexican snacks and candy tasting really stale, so I wasn't expecting a lot.
I did some research on ol' ¡Sponch! because I was curious about what "sponch" meant. I found a few different definitions:
- Urban Dictionary: a verb meaning to nerd-out in public about nerdy topics.
- Acronym Finder: an acronym meaning Sulfur, Phosphorus, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Carbon, Hydrogen, which are the key elements of life.
- Urban Dictionary: another term for whiskey dick.
So basically, I'm either about to eat something very nerdy, something that's alive, or some flaccid penis. I'm slightly nervous...
This is what they look like in person:
Not too bad looking , although they kinda skimped on the strawberry topping. I ate a few and... they're not too bad! Stale, like I expected, but the staleness kind of goes with the flavors and textures. They aren't very sugary, which is good for me because I'm not super into sweets. I think I can confidently recommend ¡Sponch!
Final Grade: B+
