@Brice. Wow! I honestly don't expect any of these sauces to be very spicy

I've got some sauces in my cupboard that one drip burns aaaaaaaaaaall the way down! But these, so far? Nothing like them! Fingers crossed though

No visual spoilers, I'll just give a Funko rating.

Today I opened Centipede.

Rating - Not Funko looking at all. 10/10.

(yesterdays Ghost rating - Got the Funko shape, but saved by the face and pose - 5/10)

Your squishes are all very similar.

.. But at least there's a teensy bit of variation there.

Yep, you have the monopoly on duplicates so far.

As for mine looking the same, that's what I was expecting tbh. It's the style of the product. Simplified, puffy, squishy things.

I expect an epic diorama by the time you're done! (Though the ground will be mostly made up of mushy slimy brown goo)

Mine are..

Today's funko is pacman.

Rating 10/10. Very non-funko and this model is what got me to buy the set. Let's hope there are more like this.


Rockford- like the bunny squishy.

What have they done to MegaMan's eyes? Why the highlight? It would look more like MM without it.

It's the exact same eyes as the red Dig-Dug thing had the other day.
I think that's a Funko thing, but.. At least it's not the traditional Funko Deadeye!

What's wrong with the tea? Have you had it before (I can't remember), and why 17 tea bags? Strange number.

The ghost doesn't have eye highlights...

Looks a bit snout-like.. Is it a big with flying wing-based ears!?!

*shrugs*

Tasting : Today's tea tastes like every single bloody other one of those Advent Calendar teas from a few years ago.
I don't mind these sorts of teas, but there's NO variety to them. Maybe you have to be a professional tea-taster to recognise any difference between them, but I sure as hell can't.
Ginger, Cinnamon, Lemon, Shrubs, Brickdust and Star Anise.
No matter the blend, they're all the same to me.

Same here with those teas. They all smell nice when you make them, but just taste like dry leaves to me. And when I say dry, I mean it - they don't leave my mouth feeling wet, like a good cuppa, if you know what I mean. They like suck all the moisture out of you.

Give me a fruit/mint tea any day. Those teas go down much better for me.

|edit| I had the Habanero one today. There was a slight tingle on the tongue for a moment, and then it was gone. That was the best so far.

Just for those interested, I don't just dip my finger in and lick off the sauce. I use the whole sachet and finish it off completely, by dipping in foodstuffs or pouring it over things. It's never just a sample, but thw whole hog. None is ever wasted.

So I've had four or five now. And not one I would have called hot or spicy.

Yeah, I think I had the same overall experience with mine, IIRC. Mine went into Pot Noodles, and they really shouldn't have bothered.

.. Maybe we're too old for these baby spices!
