How do you eat yours?

While wasting away the long easter holiday I realised that I have a very odd way of eating certain foods. And so with far too much time on my hands I set off down to the shops and bought myself a selection of some of the foods I eat, and proceded to eat them in my strange and wonderful ways. However I then thought, why not share my wacky ways with the world in some kind of blog entry. So I photographed the food at various stages of eaten-ness (yes it is a real word. Honest)

From the title you'd have thought I would start with a creme egg. But I've lost the pictures for it.

So we'll begin with what I first had. A pucker pie. Bought from the finest local fish and chip shop.

Food! 9Food! 10
(apologies for the quality of these, this comes of having to use someone else's computer)
As you can see, rather than the convential method I've gone for the somewhat unusual method of taking the top off…and eating out the insides first. Sometimes I will eat the top with the inside as well, as the top is a bit dry. This then leaves me to eat the rest of the delicious pastry.

This is similar in style to another of my foods..the custard tart.
Food! 1Food! 2Food! 3
Here initially I have carefully gone round and bitten off the crust in the first image (Note usually I wouldn't have it in the foil container..but I put in back in it for added stability, particularly for the last photo).
I have then proceded to do some difficult tongue work and lick out the entire of the filling, yet again leaving the pastry to be eaten last.

So currently I seem to be eating the inside first..and leaving the outside. But then we move on to the Kitkat Chunky.
Food! 7Food! 8
Yes, I have very carefully bitten off all the chocolate from the outside. I was actually rather impressed with this effort, ususually I end up damaging the flakes inside. I do the same thing with a normal kitkat..but it is so much more impressive with a chunky.

Finally then, the humble jaffa cake
Food! 4Food! 5Food! 6
Here the aim is simple. The inner core is the nicest part and should be craefully preserved, so I eat off the base first, and then take the chocolate off the top.

So there you have it. Naturally of course I never normally do these in front of people (I do have some manners. Sometimes.) So basically I was wondering if I am the only person who seems to have turned the eating of food in to some kind of challenge. Does anyone else eat their food in a crazy manner?

(PS: I'm aware that there is almost certainly a psychological reason for me doing this that will expose me as a nutjob. But what the hey)

(PPS: Am currently attempting to go a whole week without my own computer in my room. This has already resulted in me getting very bored and actually doing some work. Oh and stealing Fiona's laptop a lot, thanks Fi-fi!)

  2. Well…I knew you were strange but this adds a new dimension to it although I do have to admit that Milky Ways are often seen as a challenge – eating the chocolate and then the centre but I think most people do that!

    PS no probs on the laptop front ;)

  5. I do exactly the same thing with jaffa cakes.

    And with caramels I bite the two ends off and suck all the caramel out before eating the chocolate.

    Also, I sometimes do what you did to the KitKat to Crunchies, leaving the honeycomb ‘til last.

  6. I think that my bizarre rituals for eating things have, over the years, given way to simple expedience. Too much effort.
