Crackerjacks, eggnog

I found a "new" product at the local store today. It was a foil packet labelled "Crackerjacks", and listed the contents as popcorn, toffee and peanuts. I had a flash-back to when I was a kid living in the Blue Mountains, and a friend giving me some lumps of toffee, popcorn and peanuts, and we laughed as we read the silly box as we scarfed down the yummy, crunchy things. They were called "Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs." I haven't seen them for years.

That's what the Crackerjacks are: rebranded Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs. The toffee's not as sweet as I remember in the Bombs but it's still very yummy. I bought a couple of packs for the table.


I found out what eggnog is. All the Yank chrismas shows have for many years had the characters offering their guests this eggnog. What the hell is "eggnog"?

Well, it's an egg flip with brandy.

Egg, milk, some sugar (optional, to taste) and some brandy smooshed in a blender. Eggnog
Egg, milk, some sugar (optional, to taste) and some vanilla essence, smooshed in a blender: Egg flip.

Egg flips make a good breakfast.
