    I’m glad I don’t get the licorice taste. Don’t like it.

    It's not dominate but that's what I pick up on the aftertaste.

    (VT) Orange marmalade... I love it. Authentic marmalade, jammy with zest. Mild orange flavor but not candy.

    Oddly, someone who reviewed acai (I believe it was a culinary review) said the same thing.

    @Zazie , it's ready (going to mix it today) Adding just a bit more tangerine worked (did not reduce the mint... it was perfect balance with the chocolate) Final recipe:
    Chunky Chocolate Orange Mint

    (CAP) Sweet tangerine 4 %

    (VT) Orange marmalade 3 %

    (WF) Chocolate chunks 2 %

    (WF) Flapper pie 1.5 %

    (PUR) Butter mint 3 %

    Any cream would work... just had to use what I have.
    * I'm going to add a tiny bit of (FA) Cocoa because I like more of a dark chocolate (most people would not want to do this)

    At 1-1/2 weeks steep, the strawberry is gently coming forward. It's not strong, somewhere in the middle. The graham cracker clear and bavarian cream blend well with each other, I don't taste them individually. It reminds me of (kwix? The one with the bunny on it.) strawberry milk I drank as a kid, minus the dairy. Might be good with vanilla swirl to make a strawberry milkshake. I think this one would be a good base for adding another fruit to, or using as a stone for other recipes. Just a FYI for if you mix it. :)

    Do you find that the yogurts require lengthy steeping as other creamy flavors do?

    Wow. Impressive. I would show you my equivalent but I must have opened the letter and thrown the envelope away.

    Anyway, I never tried raspberry but the recipe you posted a few pages back sounded really tasty, so I ordered the flavors to give it a try. I'll let you know how it goes in a couple of weeks.

    Yes but what I found interesting is with Roger's way and if done without any sarcasm, it really shuts them down. How can they argue with you if you are agreeing and doing exactly what they say? (which is usually what you would have done anyway, they just have to nag at ya).

    In my example above: there had been a cancellation and boss was nagging about it. The staff member would have filled the spot but no one had called in for an appt. By mirroring what boss said, "would you like me to fill the spot?", what can boss say but yes. Worker says, "ok, as soon as someone calls, I will fill it." Would have been done anyway but by letting boss 'win', shuts her down. How can she complain when you are agreeing with her? Of course, our natural response is to get defensive and try to explain that no one has called so it isn't our fault. Boss doesn't want to hear it, she just wants to be 'boss' and right.

    By following Mellot's advice,it saved my sanity when I was working for the state.

    I got the One Stop SS. Really tried to like it, just didn't get very much strawberry. I've tried a lot of strawberries without any luck. Seems to be a common problem.

    Oh, I agree that it works almost all the time. But there are those ornery sorts who only want confrontation, so even complete acquiescence/surrender does not satisfy them. At that point, one is dealing with something so irrational that it is best just to let the wave wash over one without further comment. Or so I've found.

    Unfortunately, my sister is sometimes one of those people, so I have a lot of experience with the phenomenon.
