Dark Chocolate Peanut Brittle - Couple Bet
There's a local bakery in my area that sells this fantastic peanut and dark chocolate brittle. Not too sweet, not too rich...crunchy and just perfect. We love buying a bit (HK$10 worth) for snacking when we had our post-dinner walks.
One fine day, we went to buy some, and SC asked me if baby M can eat this. I said no, because it has peanuts...and chocolate. Maybe after he turns 1, he can try a bit. SC proceeded to say that the thing has butter. I was not 100% sure, but I thought it didn't have butter. My palate is shit, but I couldn't taste butter in it. We proceeded to "debate" whether or not it has butter. SC (smugly) insisted that it must have butter, I insisted that it doesn't. Fine.
I proposed a bet. He needs to ask the owner if the brittle has butter. If it does, SC wins, if it doesn't, I win. The bet's HKD100.
Actually I had my doubts, but what the hell, I wanted SC to ask the bakery owner ^_^.
We went to the bakery, and SC cheekily asked the owner "Does this brittle have butter? I am OK with butter (suck ass), in fact I loveeeee butter (Almost implying that he wouldn't buy if there's no butter. Cunning!).
Bwaahahahahaha. HK$100, come to mama!
Look at SC's sosad face when parting with his HK$100 bill...
Well, at least he can have some delicious yet butterless dark chocolate peanut brittle to snack on while weeping his loss...
