Erik Eats Haw Flakes: Of Flatness, Fruit Arises

Who knew that stomach pumping could take a toll on one's body? Well, Erik. Erik knows. So let's disperse with the sad remembrances of the last Erik Eats Lead Paint and move on to something better:

Haw Flakes


What sounds like a cereal is actually something else. Let's take a look.

Inside the package it looks like 10 individually wrapped tubes.


The nutritional information tells us that there is absolutely no nutritional value to this food. I guess that means it is Erik Eats Worthy©.


Erik opens the package.


Erik tries harder to open the package.


Erik gets tired of fucking around.


Ah haw! His knife wielding skills reveals a cylindrical package.

I'm going to ignore the fact that the ingredients on the package say "baw" instead of "haw."

What's this!?


It seems the Haw Flakes people have STOLEN the copyrighted Erik Eats Thumbs Up© logo! You bastards! It is spot on.


Instead of suing, Erik takes the high road and uses the symbol to help him get ready for his Teal'c from Stargate SG-1 Halloween costume.
Erik as Teal'c


Teal'c as Teal'c


Opening the package...


...reveals flat discs of red.


The discs are great for sharing!


Erik Eats...


...and tastes


The verdict...


The haw flakes discs are sweet and crumbly in the mouth. Delicious!

And since the packages looked so much like fireworks, we decided to light one to see what would happen.


Taste Explosion!

Note that "gourmet" haw flakes are larger.
Note, also, they may be deadly.

Wicked! Someone else has discovered Haw Flakes and finds them just as tasty as I do! (Wish I'd written something as funny about them at the time but anyway ...) Good post. Quite splendid in fact.

I have never before heard of haw flakes, but after such a thorough review of said red disks, I may just have to find some and light them on fire as well. Hilarious and informative!

When my cousins and I were 3 yrs old (back in the 70's), we had all gone to the Philippines for our grandfather's funeral. Because we were attending so many masses with our parents at the time, playing "communion" actually became a game.

I remember skipping laps around our grandparents' huge house, stopping each time we passed the living room to stop and give each other communion.

...With haw flakes.

Then our moms caught us and told us to stop.

I think more people would go to church if communion wafers were made out of haw flakes.

madd said...
