Bacon Bacon Bacon. It really does not go with everything.

LOL! I beg to differ.

Oh, I think it does. Mmmmmmmm.

Cake Pops. They're fine, but really they are just cake and icing and not worth the money that companies try to get you to pay for them. If you make them yourself they are fiddly and a whole world of hassle.
Have hated muffins from their inception. Rather chew on a stirrup-leather!
Next is current fad for Macarons. Geesh, where'd they come from? Overpriced little wads of nothing!

Can still buy MacaroOns....the coconut biscuit that's been around, at least, since the '50's & still enjoyable, especially with a hot cuppa!
I do like Cup Cakes & Butterfly Cream little Cakes.
But my favourite is the humble Lamington!
Yep Butterfly Cream Cup Cakes. Oh, I would love one (or 4) now.

Cup cakes - they are basically little sponge cakes so what's the big deal? I think they have become a bit of a "designer" item and if you want to buy into that, that's your prerogative.
Yeah! . . . and what's one of the first things we had to make in Home Ec??? Cupcakes. We could make a whole batch then for the price of one these days.

I didn't do "Home Ec" but my sister did, and she used to bring home trays of the things. In those days at a cost of pennies - changed times!

That is an interesting question. I think it depends on which part of the world you are. For me though, I would say chocolate.

You Got It!

Those rotten little CUP CAKES.
I'm sooooo over them little buggers.
Like we had them 50 years ago.
The funny thing is....they are not all that special.
I mean they are just Cup Cakes.
Frozen yoghurt. I mean, it's nice and all, but convincing people to pay $10 for a little cup of the stuff is ridiculous.
Good question. I'll think about it and come back.

Cup cakes, macaroons... now fancy eclair. Key points to these desserts : tiny with no real substance, loads of cream and icing, and costs $3.50 -$5.50 for a bite size.

True, they look so pretty with all the artificial colours, flavours and sugar , but they are way over-rated. Bring back the rustic, home-baked goodness anytime.

Hot cross buns and muffins.
Some sweet biscuits are too sweet.
Some scones are dry
Ice creams are too sweet.
Way too much salt on Chips or fries.
The list goes on.
Dippin' Dots. That frozen ice cream stuff that you get at the show. It comes in little cups and it is tiny weeny little balls. You can never have it at home as it is made some weird space age way. Definitely over rated and over hyped.

Kale. It's only glorified spinach and weve grown both as we prefer to grow our veggies but prefer the spinach.
Kale, quinoa, couscous, brown rice, andů..polenta. Macaroons. Omega3 Fish Oil - what happened to Hypol that had to be shoved down kids throats all those years ago.
So much reinvented stuff. Keep it for the gen x and y groups and leave me out of it.
Oh and pork belly like it is something that was invented fairly recently.
