Would You Rather? Christmas Foods! Eick December 25, 2008 Would You Rather? 27 Comments Merry Christmas to all my So Good readers! I hope everyone is having a terrific holiday. It’s been aÂ couple months since we did a Would You Rather? so I figured I’d bust one out for Christmas.Â This is not your usual “you can never eat X or Y again” question. Oh no. We jumbo sized this one to include 6 different Christmas foods.Â In fact, this question goes back to the very first Would You Rather? we ever did, about Circus Peanuts and McRibs – namely, you have to finish a series of foods before getting out ofÂ a room. Would You Rather? You are locked in a windowless room with nothing but a chair, a tableÂ and a toilet. You cannot leave the room until you finish eating and drinking one of the two combination’s of food offered below: Option #1: A 5 gallon tin of popcorn (cheese, butter & caramel), 50Â gingerbread men cookies and 5 gallons of egg nog. Option #2: 10 candy canes, 10 fruitcakes and 10 gallons of mulled cider. Discuss. I don’t know which I’d pick here, so let me know your logic behind whichever option you select.

Reply Cassie December 25th, 2008 I hate fruit cake and candy canes, but would rather wash them both down with cider rather than egg nog. The thought of that much egg nog makes me sick. Reply leslie December 25th, 2008 Bleck to candy canes, fruitcake, and mulled cider. I LOVE eggnog! And popcorn and gingerbread men are ok too. So my choice was easy. A tougher choice would have been: Option 1: frosted sugar cookies, fudge, pecan pie Option 2:homemade caramel corn, Harry & David Moose Mix, apple pie Reply LS December 25th, 2008 Heck, I think I did Option #1 last Tuesday… Reply rossitron December 25th, 2008 i could not, i would not, eat candy canes. too much unadorned (mostly) sugar. i’ve never had fruit cake to know whether to flee or fawn. savory snacks (popcorn in all forms) and sweet baked goods (cookies), on the other hand, make me giddy. i could go either way on mulled cider v. egg nog, so i’ll decide based on my taste in food. option #1 FTW! Reply Brian December 25th, 2008 I would have to go with option 2. I love candy canes and prefer cider to egg nog. I think I’ll do alright with the fruitcake. About 10 years ago I worked at a movie theater. I still despise popcorn. The stale, odd flavored popcorn you get in those tins is twice as bad as the movie theater stuff. Reply Holly December 25th, 2008 The fruitcake and cider sound almost good but the candy canes kill it for me – yuck! So, popcorn, cookies, and eggnogs. Yumm-o. Thanks for the suggestions … think I’ll go gorge. Reply Brett December 25th, 2008 Can I please have option one? Please? Reply Eick December 25th, 2008 I agree with most people that popcorn and gingerbread men are tasty, while candy canes and fruitcakes are generally gross. But has anyone here ever tried to drink 5 gallons of eggnog? I didn’t think so. Keep in mind, you are trapped in a windowless room. You could crush those fruitcakes and chug ten gallons of cider in one day if you wanted. You’d be shitting your brains out from that much cider, but you could do it. Try drinking a full gallon of egg nog in one day. I’m thinking the egg nog option is going to keep you in the room for at least 3-5 days. Something to consider, even if that’s the tastier of the two options. Reply Vivien December 26th, 2008 tri-flavour pop-corn, my favourite gingerbread, and egg-nog sound goods. Not a fan of fruit cake, and i guess i can let go of candy cane and mulled cider too Reply rossitron December 26th, 2008 haha, eick, i think you and your rational mind may be on to something: “…has anyone here ever tried to drink 5 gallons of eggnog? I didnâ€™t think so. ” still, i didn’t get to be the person i am today by being completely rational or logical. give me the eggnog!!! p.s. i’ll take a barf bag, to-go. Reply Nick December 26th, 2008 Have to go with the egg nog. The fruit cake would just kill me. Also, the popcorn is nothing. I house one or two of those every holiday season – or at least it seems that way…. Reply Maria December 26th, 2008 Is anyone watching? Because if they aren’t the toilet is a great place to dump a bunch of the eggnog/other things that can’t be eaten… Reply Teddy December 26th, 2008 I chose #2 b/c I’m lacto-into. Reply Cousin Eddie December 29th, 2008 I would die in that room, I read half of option 1 and threw up in my mouth. The only merit I see to option 1 is it’s 5 gallons of nasty thick vs 10 gallons of nasty sweet. Reply Youppi December 29th, 2008 does the stuff stay fresh? like is there a fridge? will the nog get warm? Reply Hillary December 30th, 2008 I chose combo #2 because if forced to eat those items, I’d feel like much less of a fatass. Reply Cary December 30th, 2008 Woof. Eick, this isn’t even close. Even though people are initially excited about the idea of ‘nog, after the first gallon you would not be able to eat ANYTHING for the next day. Not to mention you would make a mess of the toilet. Combo 1 is a recipe of regret. As much as i hate fruitcake, i would go 2. And my teeth would HATE me for all the candy canes. Reply Cary December 30th, 2008 To further the toilet quotient, you’re mixing a heavy, creamy liquid in egg nog with half-digested corn shards (assuming you’re doing this at a reasonable pace). Just…think about that. Not even close. Number 2. Reply Amanda January 7th, 2009 I like the popcorn and gingerbread men more but that much eggnog is nauseating! I’d rather choke down the fruitcake with the cider. Plus the candy canes are less filling. Number two! Reply Sharon January 8th, 2009 I chose option A. I’m allergic to gingerbread men so there’s my out. Might not be through an exit door, but I’d certainly get out of there. Reply Megan January 22nd, 2009 I love popcorn, I love gingerbread men… so I suppose I could cover the nauseating flavor of egg nog with two things I like. Fruitcake? No thanks. Nothing in this world could get me to eat that. And to those candy canes? not fair. How do 10 candy canes and 10 fruit cakes in any way compare to 5 gallons of popcorn and 50 cookies?! These are uneven by weight and mass distribution. Reply Amber January 24th, 2009 I’d probably have the caramel popcorn, and throw the rest out D: I’ve never had eggnog or cider before, but they sound gross. Reply Ricky February 24th, 2009 The eggnog did it in for me….I figure the fruitcake can sop up all the apple cider…no way could I drink that much eggnog. Reply Jessica February 20th, 2010 I don’t know. I like gingerbread men, but I don’t like eggnog, and I’m not a big fan of popcorn. So I guess I’d have to go with option #2..even though I’m not that fond of candy canes or fruit cake, its still better than eggnog and popcorn.
