SUP BABE

"People who rag on Conversation Hearts as tasteless, chalky pills totally miss the point. You don't eat Conversations Hearts, you experience them."
—This is a little last-minute, but over on Serious Eats, they've been making theoretically tasty conversation hearts and playing with them like Scrabble for the past week and a half. It's hard to beat this batch of candy, though. Update: yes, we're going all-in with Valentine's day stuff, again, but it will all be over soon. Also, don't forget about Qream. It is delicious this time of year.

There's Sprite in conversation hearts?! Now I understand why I love them so much. They fulfill my lemon-limey dreams.

I freaking love conversation hearts. I don't care how gross they are, they are the BEST Valentine's Day candy.

alphabiddycity

@OhShesArtsy Is it acceptable to go BUY conversation hearts? I feel like they usually just appear out of nowhere and I consume them en masse but for some reason I have yet to run across any this Valentine's season.

OhShesArtsy

@alphabiddycity I haven't seen any yet this year, either. Weird. It kind of ruins it to buy them yourself, you know?

Chesty LaRue

@OhShesArtsy No it doesn't! I bought myself a bag in Chinatown this year and they are delicious and I found one that says "Let's Read" which I promptly took a picture of and am using as my profile picture for BBM.

Conversation Hearts are basically me on a date in candy form: hard, cheap and full of empty sentiments

My high school BFF and I made a pact with Conversation Hearts one Valentine's Day. We took two that said "First Kiss" and promised that we'd save the candy hearts until we had our actual first kisses, and tell the other person before we told anyone else.

Lo and behold, later that night the guy I was crushing on unexpectedly smooched me. I promptly ate the heart and told my friend. I will always love the magic of Conversation Hearts.

Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy)

@travelmugs But what happened with your friend?

she still keeps it in a shell-encrusted velvet box

travelmugs

@Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy) It took her about another year to get that coveted first kiss. The candy heart got all stale and stuff, but it was worth it for her: she ended up marrying the dude it was with. AND THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER (I think-- I haven't seen her for a few years now, but she doesn't indicate otherwise on facebook).

Alixana

Sweethearts (made by Necco, I think) are gross. Brach's Conversation Hearts, however, are the holy grail of Valentine's candy. I found one bag on the shelf of my local CVS earlier this season, and have not seen them anywhere else. If you are fortunate enough to find them, you will have a very lucky Valentine (or candy-fueled stomach) indeed.

backstagebethy

@Alixana Nooo you have it backwards! Brach's are too soft. Neccos are great. Or they were till they swapped banana for the nasty blue ones. But now I just buy Necco wafers because they have all the good flavors.

Alixana

@backstagebethy Neccos are too hard! Bad for one's fillings (the fillings one has due to the excessive eating of conversation hearts, obviously).

anachronistique

@backstagebethy Every time I meet someone who loves Necco wafers I just want to hug them. (Their factory has giant columns painted like the wafers out front! How awesome is that?)

WaityKatie

@Alixana I think all varieties of convo-hearts are pretty tasty. I don't understand the hate? (the white ones especially are good).

celacia

@backstagebetty I was _so sad_ when they changed them. I loved the old ones, and the new ones are disgusting. They taste like chemicals instead of old lady candies. I had to get my husband a little box of the Brach's ones this year, and it just doesn't feel right.

jacqueline
jacqueline

The best conversation hearts are the discount kind you get at the dollar store - the messages are barely in English. I once found one that I assume was supposed to say "beep me" but instead said "BEEF ME".

olivebee

@jacqueline Perhaps it was actually intentional? Like finding those dirty subliminal messages in Disney movies.

LornaLoo

@jacqueline One Valentine's day in High School my friend Dave and I found one that said "Bunny Ass" which led us to buy a red pen and re-write our own messages on those blasted little confections. It was a great 24 hours.

olivebee

Speaking of candy most people find gross...did anyone else like those styrofoam-like satellites that melt in your mouth and are filled with little candy beads? My sleepaway camp that i went to every summer as a kid had a candy store, and I consumed those things like nobody's business.

Katheringasaga

@olivebee I love those too! I have a tendency to enjoy any candy that seems like something non-edible.

Chanticleer

@olivebee Ugh. No. I tried really hard to like those, because they seemed so whimsical and exciting, but they just... don't have a flavor? It's like instead of a flavor they have a rattling sound.

laurel

@olivebee Wait, what? Is there a photo online somewhere? I must know!

@laurel Yes - here they are. I loved these crazy candies.

RocketSurgeon

@olivebee Those little flying saucers that taste like communion wafers filled with pixy stix dust? Those things were so awkward! You had to stuff the whole thing in your mouth to get it to melt evenly, then it took forever, but the filling went everywhere if you bit it. I would still prefer that over the candy-dots-on-paper, though.

laurel

@Curiouser and curiouser How could I have missed out so completely on space candy?

olivebee

Well at least I'm not alone in liking these weird things that barely pass as food.

@RocketSurgeon Yes! I've had the dust-filled ones before in Europe, but the kind that I am more familiar with have hard, tiny little beads of candy in them. Also, the candy dots on paper are so annoying! Rarely do they come off without having a large chunk of paper stuck to them.

Katheringasaga

As one of the 6 people who actually like chalky conversation hearts, I was devastated when they changed the recipe a few years ago. I forget which brand it was, but I haven't tried them since.

backstagebethy

@Katheringasaga Yes! They changed the Necco flavors! I still get my hopes up every year, only to have them dashed when I see the blue candies on the bag.

pinecone

@backstagebethy I hear that they went back to the old recipe. I'm waiting for my conversation hearts to arrive in the mail from my mom to confirm, though.

DickensianCat

I'm partial to the white and orange ones, but let's be honest, I'll hoover all of them up if they're in front of me. Though lately more and more frequently I have nightmares of all my favorite childhood candy totally dismantling my dental work. I haven't had a Ju Ju Bee in years. YEARS. Let's not talk about Starbursts, it's too painful for me.

anachronistique

@DickensianCat I had a Jujubee pull out a sealant once. Horrors.

Bitterblue

@DickensianCat @anachronistique Ahhhhh one time a Skittles pulled out my filling, I didn't get it fixed in time, and that tooth ended up cracking in half and I had to get a root canal and it was SO EXPENSIVE and I think my parents might still resent me and my candy-for-lunch-eating ways for it, a little. (I would. Dental bills are a BITCH, as I found out after I started having to pay my own.) Also root canals hurt like someone is pulling the nerve endings right out of your goddamn head. OW.

DickensianCat

@Bitterblue @anachronistique Ahhhhhhhhh! Truly awful. Should we just start blending candy? Do they make blenders powerful enough?

tortietabbie

The best part of candy hearts is reading them out loud to girlfriends/dudefriends and giggling over how dumb they are. But, dear god, put them in my MOUTH? No, thank you.

Toby Jug

@tortietabbie Are we talking about hearts or penises now?

pterodactgirl

@Toby Jug The trouble with this country today is that nobody reads penises anymore. It's like people WANT to be ignorant.

leonstj

Is this an acceptable forum for an open food / lady related question? I'm going to assume "yes" and just ask for feedback.

So for this bday party saturday night, I brought homemade food. Five pounds of sausage I'd homemade the week before (frozen then later defrosted and cooked, not like, left out for a week), about 4 pounds of homemade tagliolini (I just bought a pasta machine last week) in a homemade very light tomato/basil kind of sauce and a little homemade ricotta, and half a dozen loaves of fresh bread.

It went over like gangbusters. Really, really well. A couple who is legit "from Italy" swooned over it (the lady in the couple said to my friend who's bday it was, I later found out, "I've fucked dudes for less reason than sausage this good."). Which leads to the question.

The female friend who's bday party it was insisted, as night was winding down and only a few of us (and none of the other ladies) were left, that the food alone would have been enough for me I should have been kicking it to her single friends. I'm an overweight, bald dude, and yet, she swears that if you can cook like I can, looks don't even matter. That dudes cooking shit from scratch is pretty high up there on most women's lists of "pluses", and can overcome a lot of negatives when evaluating a dude.

Is this crazy talk? I feel like it's crazy talk. Granted, the bread may have been heavenly (it was), and the noodles and sausages the kind of simple but sublime peasant food (carbs, protein, fat) we all animalistically crave, but I just feel like - I dunno.

When I cook, I'm listening to like, NOLA Bounce or proto-punk, fingers caked in dough and knives smeared w/ pork...bits. It's just like, sweaty and messy and frantic, and hell - the reason I love food and cooking so much is a large part of why I _am_ not conventionally attractive - it takes a lot of tasting to get the kitchen skills I have.

Ugh this is a million words too long and too rambling. Basically I just want someone to tell me that everyone was just being drunk & nice, that being a really-good cook does NOT have the same kind of rockstar magic that can make a dude ugly as Jagger a ladies man. I'm not looking to be a player, but the level of positive attention from ladies that a couple people sweared my cooking was bringing me...i dunno, it felt nice. Please make it stop and bring me down to earth!

PistolPackinMama

@leon.saintjean Your friend is right.

Having A Thing You Do is hot.
Having it be something visceral and human like making food is hot.
Having it be something you can share is hot.
Having something you can do together is hot.

Add being charming/funny/smart and you're in like Flynn for a lot of ladies. Be self confident and obviously, clearly love what you are doing and think of your own self as awesome, and I am sold forever.

Also, I have crushes as hard for John Goodman and Wendell Pierce as I do for Chris Eccleston and The Dude Who is Faramir in LOTR. More, maybe, since Pierce is Mr. Community Activist and Socially Aware Guy in addition to smoking hot fat actor.

Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy)

@leon.saintjean Nope, ladies love a man who cooks well. (Hopefully the same ladies that you'd like to date.) The trick is to exploit your skill as soon as possible. Maybe carry food with you everywhere you go?

anachronistique

@leon.saintjean My dad is a Fidel Castro lookalike and an amazing cook, and he and my mother have been married for 34 years.

Also, you know what else is sweaty and messy and frantic?

(The answer is sex.)

atipofthehat

@leon.saintjean

You're an impressive man in person and have great presence, so forgetaboutit and get 'er done.*

*John Wayne said it long before that other guy.

tortietabbie

@leon.saintjean My dude is a hot, fat, bald guy - with amazing kitchen skillz. As someone who doesn't like to cook, I think it's a pretty awesome perk. It's not like I found out he could cook and my underpants fell off and I immediately proposed to him, but it's one great trait in a sea of great traits that make me get all goo-goo face over him. You loving to cook and being good at it is just one part of what makes you awesome, it's part of the whole package. It's not the thing that's going to get you a lady but it's also not going to hurt your chances.

(I do definitely give side-eye to guys who can't/won't cook. What am I, your mother? Grow the fuck up.)

phlox

@leon.saintjean It is really a beautiful thing to watch someone doing something they love and sharing it with people. Which you are doing! And cooking is a good thing like this, because it impresses people and gives them a conversation starter with you, and then you can wow them with how all-around awesome you are.

So this friend needs to throw a party and invite some of her single lady friends and you can cook, and she will prove her point.

Marquise de Morville

@leon.saintjean I can only echo what Tortietabby and others above commented. Cooking skills (or any life skills) definitely help. My husband did woo me patiently with his cooking skills (and sense of humor). He is also not an athletic guy, and not my type at first, but I think he is extremely attractive. I broke up with my super-athletic ex (among other things) because he only lived exclusively off Frito-Lay products and Diet Coke and was obsessed with his abs. So in my opinion cooking or any other take-care-of-yourself skill is a great bonus in dating, but personal attraction is still important, and it takes more patience if one is not conventionally hot.

You mentioned you live in Brooklyn, I think it is a difficult dating scene to begin with despite all the exciting people you can meet. Are the ladies you are interested in of the sausage-loving kind? Heh, that was not meant to sound dirty, but if they are indifferent to food you make it is a good reason to move on until someone is not! I recommend you try to find someone to cook together with, since that makes it less "I am trying hard to impress you" and more "I want to share good food with you and am open enough to show you the real me while cooking." If they are put off by that then I think it would not work out in the long run.

P.S. Being able to make sausage in a tiny apartment is an enviable skill and should count for a lot, but then I am German.

werewolfbarmitzvah

@leon.saintjean Your friend is ABSOLUTELY right. Cooking skills in particular tend to be catnip to the ladies (because we likes the eatin'!), but really just being talented at something in general can make any man become very attractive to the ladies. The same can be said for men who are extremely funny, or men who are great writers, or skilled musicians, or whatever else. Being good at stuff is attractive, and depending on what it is you're good at and just how good you are at it, it tends to render physical appearances irrelevant. (And as a side note, Jagger in the 60s and 70s was not at all ugly!)

Esther C. Werdiger

@leon.saintjean
If you're as charming as your Hairpin posts indicate, then you're JUST FINE. Cooking is a total plus though. Don't worry too much.

liznieve

@leon.saintjean

Adding to the cacophony: yes, it is really attractive. People like to be taken care of, and delicious food certainly falls into that category. It's hot when someone works away at something lovingly for you, whether it's a poem, a painting or some rockin' sausage.

Heh, "rockin' sausage."

Ahem.

Anyway, clearly you're a thoughtful and charming dude (well, as evidenced by your 'pinnership and commenting history), and the cooking skills are a total bonus. And a good entre for a date. An adorable date. Of visceral pleasure. Or something. Yes.

frigwiggin

@leon.saintjean You remember Amelia Bedelia? How she would feed people pie and everything would be perfect? Just do that. (Maybe without being an absurd moron beforehand, although I suppose some people go for that too.)

meganmaria

@leon.saintjean Like everyone else has said, cooking is super attractive. A lot of dudes don't get how amazing and fun it can be to cook. So either they don't. Or they put in enough effort not to give everyone food poisoning and call it good. Besides, you seem smart and funny and thoughtful enough that it's kind of amazing you don't have chicks all over you right now.

Judith Slutler

@leon.saintjean I, too, think cooking is a cool hobby that creates awesome results - anything like that can help you out. BUT of course there is just no silver bullet in the dating game. I think what I'm trying to say here is cook because it's what you love to do, not because you think The Ladies should appreciate it. It sounds like that's what you've been doing for years anyway, so keep doing what you're doing because you are awesome.

As for your friend's comment... Your friend was primarily trying to say something super nice about your cooking, I think. Plus there are some people who want their parties to be hookup zones and think it reflects upon them as the host if you aren't getting digits and/or laid at their events. So I suspect she was mostly talking about one or both of those two things.

laurel

@leon.saintjean Can we discuss the bald issue? Do I have to point to a kabillion google images of gorgeous bald men? I think we all know it's possible to be bald and beautiful.

Seriously, I think some bald men, especially the burlier ones?, underestimate the appeal of all that masculinity. Own it. Be it. Take good care of yourself, whatever you look like.

PS: Cooking and eating together can be pretty much just short of sex in the sexiness department. Come live with me and be my love and we will all the pleasures prove...

ru_ri

@leon.saintjean I agree with what other people have said, that being confident and good at something does have a definite effect on a person's attractiveness. That said, I have met a few men who were excellent cooks, but really off-putting because they had a kind of prima-donna attitude going, like being able to cook PLUS Y-chromosome made them superior than, say, awesome cooks without a Y-chromosome. Do you know what I mean? Perhaps it is because I also know my way around a kitchen, but I get really annoyed when some guy brags about his (legitimately good!) sourdough bread AS IF no one else in the room could POSSIBLY have ever achieved such a feat. Or maybe I am just envious and resentful because being a great cook has not gotten me laid, ever? That's probably it. Forget it, you are great, go forth and cook and have lots of sex, and perhaps someday we can compare knives. (In a good way! Not the stabby way!)

@laurel Jason Statham, Patrick Stewart, etc etc...

@leon.saintjean Cooking is hot, to ladies who like to eat. Are you also willing to date ladies who look like they like to eat?

PistolPackinMama

@iceberg I love this comment so much. You have no idea. I am considering screen grabbing it.

Rrrowena

@leon.saintjean I once called my sisters about a new guy and said, "He made beef stew with root vegetables! I don't even cook with turnips!" And everyone was very impressed, because my people are food people. I don't date people who are picky eaters, or don't cook, because what are you 5 years old? And being a good cook is a huge plus. Huge.

Also, as other ladies have noted, being good at something (pretty much anything) and enthusiastic about it is sexy. And also also, being bald: not a problem. Unless you have a real thing for shallow women who already have a set idea in their head of what the perfect man looks like. I don't think hair is an issue for most of us over 25.

But back to the food: If you're comfortable having people over, start throwing dinner parties! And invite single people you think are cool. It's a good, low key way to impress them and get to know them. Because you get to show off your cooking and your friends (who hopefully you feel comfortable and witty around) without the pressure of it being a date. Also, it's cheap- I can feed 8 people for what I'd spend on one night out, and sometimes I actually end up with more wine than I started with.

sevanetta

@leon.saintjean I like what so many people have said here! Add me to the list of laydeez saying that YES cooking is a very attractive skill.

I'm probably repeating the themes of other responses here, but I liked what various people (esp pistolpackinmama) said about how it's partly being able to do something well. It's also fucking :practical:. I suspect other women also get a bit like this. When I see an online profile for a guy who says he'd 'love to meet a woman who can cook', warning bells go off in my head and I see my future with this guy, 2 kids underfoot, staring into the kitchen cupboard trying to decide what to make for dinner while the dude stands around aimlessly, whinging 'But I can't cook'. I also assume that if a dude is too lazy to do what is essentially one of the :funnest: household chores, ie feeding yourself, he is not going to be so crash hot at taking responsibility for the less-fun chores.

(Soo... on another note... may I please have some sausage? pretty please :) )

SUP BABE is the worst conversation heart!!!!!

I had an evil ex who would very often text me, simply, "sup," and I, cheerful chatterbox that I am, would be all, "Oh not much I had spaghetti for lunch and I fell in a puddle and just barely passed my Statistics exam and now I'm reading a book what are you up to and what do you want to eat for dinner?" He would 99% of the time not respond, at all.

I hate you, SUP BABE!

nyikint

@Woman Laughing Alone With Boas My dad has only ever managed to text 'wassup' or 'sup' to me. I do the same thing as you and reply with a long, informative, chatty text, and even then the reply is always just 'sup'. I think he has two drafts saved in his phone, and his texting prowess goes as far as sending the two out.

That, or he's fucking with me.

"What happened to half the oreos?"
"I experienced them while watching That 70s Show."

hahahaha, ja.

I once accidentally swallowed a whole conversation heart. Those fuckers take forever to melt, and in the meantime they get stuck in your throat and each ripple of esophageal muscle sends the sharp edges digging into your throat as you desperately try to will it down into your stomach.

Sometimes I forget to chew.

@amity If they made conversation hearts out of Tums, the world would be a better place. Tasty AND therapeutic! It would make "Tweet me" go down that much easier.

@cuminafterall I had a huge food-crush on Tums for awhile as a teen. It would be incredible if they had writing on them!
Halls cough drops have little "pep talk" phrases written on the wrappers now, and I've had a lot of fun just reading them off to people at random and having them give me the side-eye. (Not strangers. Friends, family, coworkers, whoever is around when I happen to consume a cough drop. And then we all start eating cough drops and reading inspirational phrases off the wrappers at each other. Good times.)

When my mom was growing up in Cambridge, MA, they went to the Necco factory on school field trips (the factory was in Cambridge then but is now in Revere). It was considered educational!

yunkstahn

@pinecone I remember the building in Cambridge! The water tower on top was painted to be a roll of Necco wafers, which always made me smile. The building has been a lab for a few years now, though, and the water tower is now painted with the double helix.

I think they still make Tootsie Rolls in Cambridge, though. Sometimes that section of Mass Ave between Central and MIT would smell very strongly of chocolate (like thin mints, actually).
