Please join me after the break for a look at ceramics and ceramic tasting chocolate!
1) Rainbow Dash Goblet
That face is haunting.
This 7” tall 12oz cyan goblet is what happens when an inebriated Twilight casts a horrific transformation spell on one of her friends. The hoof-made piece of ceramic is skillfully base-coated by brush, with a machine following up with the face painting and other details. I’m pretty sure if this was one of the choices for Indiana Jones as he perused the selection for the Holy Grail, the movie would have turned out way different.
In case you didn't know it was bluefast. Ignore the cat.
EQD reminds you to always drink responsibly.
What Rainbow Dash’s sloshy brains normally look like. Serve chilled.
Yeah, no. I doubt any color liquid other than clear or blue would blend with or not clash with Rainbow Dash’s light blue flank color. Also, lifting her up to stick her mane in your mouth sounds like something out of a fanfic, but I did it anyway. I wanted to pretend that she made the honey wine taste better, but all I remember was the look of “what are you doing with your life” that my wife gave me. Drinking an adult beverage from a children’s television show’s character’s head is on everyone’s bucket list right?
Final verdict: Make sure you have the correct vessel for your type of drink, and if you need to be distracted from your liquid in order to even swallow it, this is the chalice for you.
2) Rainbow Dash Salt and Pepper Shaker.
For when you want even more stuff from Rainbow’s head
This set of shakers measures about 4” tall on the Rainbow Dash one. I bought these because Dashie looked so cute on a cloud. I don’t have enough Dashie on clouds. As plain and boring as the generic rainbow salt shaker is, the Rainbow pepper shaker is nicely modeled and decently painted. It’s not a perfect job, but it’s whimsical. And of course, she’s the pepper shaker. It’s totally because she’s the zippiest, fiercest of ponies and not just because she’s the bigger mold.
That rainbow is woefully uninspired.
90% of my diet is capsaicin
Because I believe in fresh ground black peppercorns and salt, milled to an application determined-size, I figured I’d choose another pair of seasonings. In comes smoked Bhoot Jolokia, aka Ghost Pepper powder, and smoked paprika: Two seasonings I usually use in grilling. Rainbow Dash, being the intense filly she is, clearly needs to be the seasoning with a million Scovilles and the colorful smoked paprika can be in the rainbow. Let’s see how that works...
Out of the Pegasus and into the frying pan.
Final Verdict: It’s like dumping her thoughts all over my food. Or her Daring Do fan fiction. 9/10 would season again.
3) Remember Me Chocolate Game
Time to eat some ponies.
This is an odd one: a simple memory game disguised as chocolate. Designed as a couch co-op puzzle solver more frustrating than one-handed button-mashing Fighting is Magic. Of my top 5 list of pony related games, this was on a different list. Made in the Netherlands, the box denotes that it contains Belgian chocolate. Of any two European countries, the magic of friendship is some of the strongest between Belgium and the Netherlands. We’ll see how that friendship tastes later on.
Delicious stock art.
A 1 in 20 chance of getting your OTP.
I’d ship it.
Her first draw was the pair of Snips. I was in trouble. I drew these princesses. 15 minutes in and the game was still on. At some point my wife got so engaged that she stopped watching the stove. For better or for worse my house is equipped with a commercial fire alarm system, complete with strobes and pull handles. Yeah, that sucker went off. After a pause in the game to vent my AC and smoke into the neighborhood, we resumed and then finished the game. Here’s how it worked out...
My pairs are on the left, hers on the right.
It was a tie. A battle of the ages that ended in smoke, tears, and a couple bouts of coughing. It was time to reward ourselves. The creators, Games for Motion, make a confusing set of products, including grade school educational games, and Heineken beer: The Game. We were hopeful that a company that also failed to renew their URL as printed on the box, and who made the most horrific looking My Little Pony gingerbread set, at least had some decent chocolate. So we unwrapped...
It’s designed to look like one of Applejack’s fields.
Final Verdict: It’s a game you can get into, even if it’s as simple as it is. The chocolate is not something I recommend getting into you.
Even ponies are better with bacon.
