Decadently Delicious Makes Every Day Scrumptious!
Why do I use the above title? Seriously, what do you consider to be a gooey goodie?
Stop eating right now and take a look at your food. Are you eating the freshest,
tastiest dish around? If not, how about rolling up your sleeves for some of your
very own ooey, gooey fun using my tried-tested-and-true five star rating guide.
(Thanks to all the fanmail asking me just how I decide which items to buy for
my gallery; this is what you've been waiting for...!)
What decides the rating of a gooey goodie? What is on the plate is by far the
most important factor. For example, what do you think about when I say the word,
"Meat Feast Pizza Block?" Do you only see it as a slab of bread with tomato
sauce and cheese? Why not try to see it as a crispy crust, with sweet sauce
bubbling through the mounds of melting, oozing cheese - OH MY! Please forgive
me for being dramatic... clever combinations of creativity and imagination that
keep our tastebuds tantalized are often determining factors too. Sometimes I've
even been known to sit on my hands waiting for the news to update to see if
there are any newly released drippy items! If it's a gooey goodie, it's got
to be good!
What else do I look for in a gooey goodie? The quality of the item is among
the most telling signs of a gooey goodie. It's those tempting foods smothered
with drippy toppings, and/or made with very messy fillings that get my attention!
I look for gooey goodies everywhere I go and you just might find yourself doing
the same after reading this article! Is it gooey looking? Does it have a drip?
How messy is it? If it's not any of those, than it's not good enough for me!
The ratings are as follows, with examples below! 5=Exceptional, 4=Excellent,
3=Very Good, 2=Good, 1=Average. Honestly, I know my obsession isn't getting
any better... I must learn how to bring some order to my neo-life. *sigh*
WHAT DO THE GOOEY GOODIE STAR RATINGS REALLY MEAN?
Honey Toast - Five Stars: The highest rating. Only the most gooiest scrumptious
items receive this many stars. There is something very satisfying about the
drippy mess something like Chococherry Surprise or the newly released Buttered
Watermelon leaves behind! *drools* (Don't worry, this article comes complete
with drool-proof pages!) These five star items can get kinda messy, but who
cares when they tastes that GOOD! My advice, don't eat any of the following
unless you are sitting down... Chokato Grarrl Cake, Chocolate Asparagus, Carrot
Cupcake, Tchea Fruit Pastry, Hot Cheesy Baguette, Mutant Doughnut, and Aisha
Toffee Apple. One thing for sure none of these makes for a boring dessert! Mmmm.
Kau Cupcake - Four Stars: These items offer very high quality gooey-ness, slightly
messy. What's not to loooooove about these decadent items with breathtaking
oozing creamy toppings? Basically, that means if it's not messy, it's not sticky,
or it's not very gooey, then it hasn't made it into my mouth! I love when it's
all over my hand and down my forearm, and onto my elbow, where the toppings
gather and drip onto the ground. LOL. The flavors of all these desserts are
different and alluring, well beyond those of Neopia's favorite summer dessert,
ice cream, but that's part of the adventure. You can say "bye-bye" to boring
desserts when you spoon these toppings over them: Rainbow Toast with Rainbow
Jam, Gumball Filled Swiss Roll, Caramel Mynci Apple, Cinnamon Swirl, Chrysaberry
Seashell, Cream Roll, Chips and Curry Sauce, and Nachos and Cheese.
Honey and Bacon Burger - Three Stars: All three-star items are generously smothered
but not messy. Items like these are just begging for you to take a bite out
of them! Now its time for you to get creative! Why have just plain foods, when
there is such a variety of fresh toppings to choose from! Such as chocolate
(any will do!), cheese, sauce, syrup, jelly, gravy, caramel, marshmallow, whip
cream, and frosting! Other popular smothered items loved by all: Raspberry Aisha
Waffle, Chocolate Covered Tomato, Baked Juppie, Kacheek Meatball, Healthy Apple
Pretzel, Strawberry Iced Mynci, Cloud Usul Iced Buns, and Small Elppa Pie. Talk
about exquisite, ooey gooey comfort-foods!
Chocolate Kougra Pudding - Two Stars: Two star ratings are usually tempting
and quite charming. Look a little closer. There is a drip, people - to the left!
Just barely eh?! Repeat after me... Life's too short to eat boring desserts.
Especially when you can eat something very creative and interesting! You have
to admit these are a fun, easy way to turn ordinary desserts into extraordinary!
Rich, classic tastes without all the fuss! Imagine that! But the thing is: I
just love these items for their cuteness too: Chocolate Smore, Chocolate Dipped
Peophin Cookie, Cream Covered Acara Cookie, Choco-Strawberry Techo Cookie, Peanut
Butter Elephante Cookie, Chokato Draik Cake and Thornberry Krawk Tart.
Thornberry Krawk Tart - One Star: One star items are yummy, BUT not a drip or
mess anywhere. Suitable for those with a sweet tooth. For me these are sorta
average, but I can't resist collecting them anyway! A dessert maybe as simple
as a delectable fruit or as elaborate as a decorated cake. Everybody loves dessert,
even if they won't admit it, right? Is this you: Your desserts so boring, your
family is snoring? *giggles* May I suggest while keeping the gooey things all
to yourself, you can pass the following desserts onto your Neofriends *winks*:
Chocolate Chip Biscuits, Starberry Techo Biscuit, Plate of Cookies, Mynci Tail
Doughnuts, and Orange Swirl Pudding.
Well, sadly it's time to say goodbye... but one last thing before you go. I
hope you can no longer resist the sweet lure of gooey goodies thanks to my articles,
but to make sure ask yourself the following questions!
1. Can't resist the lure of the deep-fried Lemon Faerie Mousse?
2. You can't resist having just another bite of a Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwich?
3. Bet you can't eat just one tiny Strawberry Fondant Surprise?
4. The only way to satisfy your cravings is to eat that whole Lime Shoyru Cake?!
If you've read this far, you will now understand why I enjoy being the gooey
goodie goddess! Many of nights I find myself nibbling on my computer screen!
Some call it crazy, but this is how I like to spend my time! All right, so it's
not exactly diet food, but every once in a while you gotta indulge... don't
you deserve a little reward for all your hard work? Feel free to neomail me
if you have purchased anything using my star rating guide! ;)

nodded, took a step towards the adoption counter, and stopped. The Eyrie gave
her a gentle prod, but she didn't move...
