Oh gosh, I am so knackered it’s not even funny! We were at my parents’ house for the weekend and my mother took us for a walk in Rebild Bakker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebild_National_Park), which, if you can’t be bothered to follow the link, is a very hilly place where the Danish-American Society have their 4th of July celebrations. We followed a few trails, got very lost indeed, and generally spent a whole lot of energy struggling up and down snow-covered hills while trying not to break arms and legs. My thigh muscles had definitely started in on the fatty acids before we came out and back to the car!
Anyway, the point of this is I’m dead on my feet and couldn’t face tackling all the posts you lot made while I was away. Something heartening was very much required, and I found that I automatically reached for the black currant.
Funny that. I’ve had it a few times but only posted about it the first time. I didn’t think then that it would be one that I would keep in stock, and I’m still don’t think it really will be, but for now it’s definitely still enough of a novelty in my collection that it continues to hold my interest.
There were the other berry flavoured ones as well, and this one is making me quite excited to try those.
It’s very sweet tonight, with a fair sized side note of vanilla. I seem to consistently find that vanilla-ish note, and it makes me wonder if the black currant flavouring has been modified a bit so as not to become overly tart. You know, considering the fact that the black currant really is very strongly present, acidic astringency and all.
