To almost answer one of your questions, I believe Yum Yum Cupcake Truck tweeted that they actually won first place!

Interesting. I don't recall seeing them there (in truck form or otherwise). But then again, we only spent Sunday at The Festival of Chocolate. (Saturday, we were at the Pie Festival. :p )

Oh man, chocolate is my weakness. Oh, and cute girls serving brownie brittle, too! :lover:
My mouth is literally watering right now. I see chocolate Pop-Tarts in my very near future (Don't judge, it's the only chocolate left in the whole house, haha).
Thanks for sharing this. I've never even heard of such a thing. I guess I'm a bad chocolate enthusiast.

P.S. Did Misty win anything for showing off her chopstick skills?

Thanks for another interesting TR of something that I wished I could have made it to! I did a chocolate festival years ago in NYC and was shocked at how expensive most of the items were (even by NYC prices!). I saw things were listed in "coins", how did the prices translate?

No. But she did better than me, so I assume she's happy. :p


Gonna have another go at making this Erik & Smisty & Bryan & Adam Holy Land thing happen. Keep your fingers crossed!

^ Yay, a Junior Space Cadet!

Just a quick note on a past update: Hula Dog (aka, Kona Dog) has apparently closed their physical location and become a food truck.

Some James Bond movies were filmed there. Stevie Nicks wrote a song about it (I guess). It's in Florida. And we're Erik & Smisty.

Silver Springs
03IMGP9552.JPG
It's $31.99 for adults to get in. Which is a really good deal if you hate yourself.
05P1126179.JPG
Hey, wanna feed a muck?
10IMGP9558.JPG
This storefront promenade was nice. Reminded me a bit of Lake Winnie.
11IMGP9673.JPG
It featured a pizza place, a gift shop, the main restrooms, and a museum of the park's history.
12P1126189.JPG
"My favorite tree is J. Rawk!"
17IMGP9682.JPG
But of course the main attraction at Silver Springs is their glass-bottom boats.
19P1126225.JPG
It seems like a lot of trouble just to see glass. I mean, I have some in my house. But tourists are weird, you know?
23IMGP9648.JPG
These statues were placed here by the James Bond film producers. I can't be arsed to figure out for which movie, which is amazing because I'm really into James Bond. But there you go.
33P1126258.JPG
I think these prices are a secret code for something. I've stared at them for some time, and can make no sense of their randomness.
35IMGP9687.JPG
Oh cool, a ride! Let's go!
36P1136279.JPG
Er...maybe it'll open later in the day.
38P1136281.JPG
Maybe it's just the theme park veteran-employee in me talking, but that seems like a trip hazard.
42P1136293.JPG
There was some sort of concert going on that day. The Country Buskins, I think they were called. I didn't really stick around to hear.
44IMGP9698.JPG
Cool, a bird show! Oh...wait....
50P1136298.JPG
Are you ready for ghetto Kilimanjaro?
56IMGP9736.JPG
Animals.

Yes, that's my caption. Shut up.
57P1136311.JPG
The best seat is the one right behind the jeep's exhaust pipe.
60IMGP9752.JPG
Also, our bears have psychic powers.
64IMGP9708.JPG
Animals.
65IMGP9758.JPG
This is, like, the saddest ride ever.
66IMGP9761.JPG
Please do not sit in our employee's chair. Thank you.

You know...if this is really such a big problem...maybe you should add some benches. Just saying.
68P1136342.JPG
Sorry kids, our cool animal is broken. How about that nice donkey there?
70P1136349.JPG
Why even have animals if you're just going to make fun of them?
74IMGP9777.JPG
This place is shaped like Six Flags Over Georgia. In other words, a big sucky U.
76P1136382.JPG
I just spent three minutes trying to come up with a rawk/rock pun, before finally realizing how incredibly stupid that was.
80IMGP9789.JPG
"The Spirit of the Swamp" was always my favorite Scooby-Doo episode.
81P1136386.JPG
Well, I guess alligators was predictable.
82P1136397.JPG
These ladders were bad.
83P1136470.JPG
One day there will be something cool here. We swear. Come back and see!
84P1136555.JPG
'Snake walls' always makes Smisty happy.
86P1136561.JPG
"Maybe they won't see me."
87P1136464.JPG
"Eh, it's a living."
89P1136398.JPG
What's this...?
90P1136410.JPG
Another boat ride! This is like the Moonraker of theme parks!

Incidentally, Moonraker was one of the Bond films partially filmed here.

But there were also some good ones, probably.
91IMGP9794.JPG
Animals.
92P1136449.JPG
This is our racist redneck boat captain. He'd just like you to know that Koreans don't mind if you make fun of Chinese people, so neither should you.
96IMGP9828.JPG
Also, he likes to watch sports, kill animals, and his daughters will never date.

It's possible that he steals all of his material from Jeff Foxworthy, but there's really no way for me to know.
98IMGP9822.JPG
They say that this boat died of natural causes, but I've always suspected tree murder.

Silver Springs: Bring your enemies!
