Guess That Colorado Pastry

Post by blogger | April 20, 2010      

Louie was out on a ski trip with his buddies and they chowed down on this guy when they got back. Check out all that sugar and the spicy dusting! Anyone guess where the young squires got this thing and what they were calling it? Interesting what kind of food these industrial design students get in the habit of eating, isn’t it?

Colorado sugar

Colorado sugar.

The real roll.

You guys saw through our ruse all to quickly, I guess we needed to have spent more time this morning on Photoshop. Yep, snirt and snow, rolled up, the ultimate Colorado pastry!

Thanks Jordan for the image.

    Looks like the famous Colorado Rollerball pastry, slightly gritty on the palette but delicious.

    Looks like a bowl of “snirt”, Mt. Sopris vintage, from a day or two ago?

    Reminds me of two pastries I ate on Sunday that caused my blood sugar to rocket.

    You guys are too smart for your own good. I thought your sugar addictions would block your intelligence. Apparently not!

    Big roller ball (see second photo), eh?

    This is great. I initially did not read the article thinking it was some pale exotic pastry review by Lou, yet again. It is hard to tell which is the photoshop version.
