Christmas is closing in and with it comes the time of good food and specialties that we only get to enjoy during this holy season.

Who remembers for example last year’s Coca Cola Cinnamon?

Unfortunately, the food companies’ chief wizards seem to know a lot about marketing but only very little about actual taste. How else could one explain the atrocities that now start filling the supermaket shelves: Gingerbread limonade, cinnamon anchovies, and turkey flavored tea are only a few of treats that await the discerning shopper.

At least the highlight from this year’s summer season, “liver wurst Hawaii”, seemes to have disappeared from the shops.
