Shake #34

Today's shake: Ricicles

Taste: 7
Texture: 7
Synergy: 8
Scorn: 1
Total Score: 7.75

General Comments: This one works almost as well as the Crunchy Nut Cornflakes shake, and for much the same reason; it's like drinking the milk from the bowl once the cereal is gone. In fact, it's so close to being as good as the aforementioned CNC shake that I was hoping I'd have lowered my scorn enough in recognition of their obvious similarities that this shake would actually come out ahead. This would infuriate BigHead no end to learn that weaker shakes were scoring more highly than stronger ones purely because I was getting smarter at deciding what works ahead of time. I imagine he would consider this a betrayal of maths, or something (I wasn't really listening).

Alas, it was not to be, and the Ricicles shake must be content to slot in just behind those shakes who still rule the roost with eight points apiece.

This is why you needed to scorn the entire menu at once.

A mere 6 for texture? With my firm yet supple body?

I approve of LaTeX code in blog comments, though.

Personally I don't like my statisticians too firm so I would probably mark you down as well...
