Badvent 2022


Badvent Time is here again.
Time to open the doors again.
What mysterious tat will lie inside?
Things so bad, you'd rather hide!

This year, I'll be rocking a Beanies Coffee Calendar (which promises a few christmassy flavours, this year) alongside another Degustabox calendar, and a box full of blind-bag items.

Is anyone else taking part, this year?

Ohhh, with Beanies I've found they're often better when mixed with proper coffee, otherwise they're pretty underwhelming imho.

Web / Game Dev, occasionally finishes off coding games also!

Stir it into a mug of milk, then pop it into the microwave for ~2 mins, give or take (wattage, milk type, etc)
Then give it a good stir and you've got yourself a lovely coffee..

Beanies seem to work best with WAY too much milk

Almost bought the Back to the Future Town hall playmobile calendar which was less that £20 in TXMax. But I don't need more junk / toy stuff that is huge (did I just say that?) ... so I didn't.

Look forward to yours and anyone else who is going to post what interesting things they get!

I had found the ones I bought in Maryland and had brought to Tennessee that had not been done yet, and I had the couple I bought in Tennessee as well. Unfortunately, I did not have room in the van to bring them here to Oregon, and I am not spending any more $$ on such things, as it is a few hundred $$ that has been wasted due to circumstances.

I look forward to seeing rockford's which never fail to disappoint, unless you are the poor child receiving one as a gift.

I've got a box of squashy things. From what I can see they all look OK-ish, so no real awful tat. But they're not good either!

@Brice - I hope not to disappoint this year, but they don't appear to be truly terrible (from boxart), but I have my fingers crossed!

What a coincidence. Looks like your was a different set of sauces though, looking at the varieties in my box. No Hawaiian Lava Flow etc.

Glad Ashens is back. Hopefully their calendars will be better this year though.

Yeah, mine was a bit crappy, so hopefully yours is a hell of a lot better!

Just watched the Ashens, and .. Yup!!!

I got the Retro funko box, so don't reveal if you don't want to see future spoilers on jayenkai's. I won't be posting any others so not to bore everyone with the duplicates.

Delivered by Amazon next to our bin, annoyingly. There was someone in the house, good job it wasn't raining

Re: DigDug. Same! As soon as I saw it. As for his name? ermmmmmm....

I rather enjoy cranberry - I'm sure I'd prefer it to the caramel flavour. Caramel is too sweet for me.

Day o2 Update

Scotch Bonnet Chili Hot sauce tasted more of bonnet than Scocth or Chili. As for heat? Yeah, where was that?

Cloud Seal (or Blimp Seal) FTW!

Spent a fortune on the Dig Dug machine back in the day.

@Rockford, be careful if you actually get something hot. Had a friend literally almost die from taking the "one chip challenge" or one chip that was super hot. He got a Mallory Weiss tear from all of the vomiting and almost died from the loss of blood. He was lucky to get emergency surgery at a time when most hospitals were over loaded with Covid.
