Hi! I’m in Rochester, New York right now – just a week or two after finding out that my school was willing to send me all the way to the States to represent Cambridge at a conference for “business school leaders.” I knew I ran for president for SOMETHING! Anyhow, it’s already started off well, with them surprising me with a giant bag full of goodies. Well… to be more specific – a bottle of wine, a book and a LOT of junk food.
In fact, I think this is the most junk food I’ve had in my possession for years now – it’s certainly the most candy!
I was going to make a snarky comment about Rochester trying to give me diabetes, but on second thought I realized that a lot of these things – like Baby Ruths or Nerd Rope – I haven’t had in well over ten years! And since I’ve never actually gone to a Wegmans before, this conference has opened up my eyes to completely new products… like Wegmans Fruit Twists, which taste like fruit roll ups squished into a licorice.
Surprisingly, the ingredients list seems pretty benign – lots of fruit concentrates! But what exactly is “natural flavor” i wonder.
So yeah! Thanks B-school Conference! These will most likely be consumed in one (or several) of my drunken hazes throughout the weekend.
