QuoteMelatonin is named for melanin, or skin pigment, and serotonin, a neurotransmitter found abundantly in the pineal gland. It was discovered by a Yale dermatologist who found that the extract from cow pineal glands lightened the skin of frogs. Melatonin later was identified as a hormone

Quote from: guildnavigator on April 08, 2011, 05:49:58 PMVienetta Ice Cream. This product has been on my mind for over two years now, with no release. No manifestation, no presence. Just an empty longing for the texture, flavor- and perhaps also for the simpler times during which I regularly enjoyed it.I was more or less wandering through the grocery store a few years ago, when suddenly it popped into my mind. The crispy delicate and flaky layers of chocolate, draped between elegantly structured and folded ice cream, forming such a dramatic combination of different textures that one could more easily compare it to a layered cake.I made my way to the ice cream/frozen dessert section thinking to myself "WTF was that stuff called again?!"I kept wanting to say some variant of "velveeta" in my head. (ugh)Of course, it wasn't there. I went online and found myself at the website of one Unilever corp. They make everything. As of about 10 years ago or so, they no longer ship vienetta out to most of north america. Apparently, if you live in the UK you can still get it.I still find myself browsing for it in the market from time to time regardless.Breyers Viennetta commercialand if reliving the experience of viewing that commercial was not enough torture for me, I also came across footage of it being produced:How Vienetta Is MadeThis was popular during Art Bell's mid 90s heyday. I wish that I could go to the store in the evening, pick up some vienetta, come in out of the rain, put on the new X-files, Sightings, or Unsolved Mysteries episode, and then after TV got shitty, turn on Art Bell. We never appreciate the good times until they are gone!

Quote from: guildnavigator on April 11, 2011, 06:55:18 PMThat's called maintaining the proper ratio of Vienetta to people.

Quote from: JustOneFix on April 11, 2011, 06:49:51 PMI do remember Vienetta- remember one incident where there were 4 of us and 4 boxes of Vienetta. In a Mary Jane fueled moment, we had a contest for whoever ate the whole box first won something stupid, it was a half eaten box of Honey Smacks best I recall. I had forgotten all about that until I read this thread!
Quote from: 999 on April 12, 2011, 05:01:12 PMgood thing the prize wasn't a 1/2 box of cap'n crunch or you'd have come down from your buzz with a mouthful of blood and your roof-mouth skin dangling in shreds.
Quote from: b_dubb on April 12, 2011, 06:56:30 PMCaptain Crunch is a horrible product and proof that people can't take a hint. if you eat something and it turns the inside of your face to hamburge, stop fucking eating it. but still ... you have Captain Crunch. lurking in the cereal aisle. waiting for his next victim
