It’s salt on the wound that Necco has the gall to assert that they’re within the sweet enterprise within the yr 2023. Are you kidding me? That’s like operating a horse-and-buggy rental and telling folks you're employed in transportation.

Fried pork dumplings are very probably my favourite meals of all time, and if not, they'd on the very least make it handily via the primaries.

I'm certain there are some freaks on the market who get pleasure from them, however to me, it’s like consuming the grips off the handlebar of a really tiny bicycle.
