Excavations of Claymore: Almond Joy (at last!)

I've been meaning to review this one all semester, but me having Taz's meal card or cash with me never seemed to coincide with Claymore having coconut, almond and chocolate flavor syrups. I had a barista substitute hot cocoa mix once. It was bad, so I decided to hold out on the review until I could get all the witnesses on stand and give the Almond Joy a fair trial.

I'll give it this: The Almond Joy tastes exactly like the candy bar. I had never tried one but, for the sake of research, I accepted one from a classmate's Halloween stash.

It was... okay. Just like the steamer. If you're cuckoo for coconut, then you'll love this drink. If you have an insatiable sweet tooth, even better - you can skip the candy aisle and go for something with real calcium in it! But if you're the kind of person that keeps the mashed potatoes on the opposite side of the plate from the cranberry sauce, might I advise that you also keep your drink and dessert separate in this case.

Peace, love, and pumpkin spice,
Miss Rex

Hey I wanted to let you know that over the summer I tried figuring out what you were using to make those noises for your commercial but I never could figure it out! :(

Haha I'm glad someone asked about that! I felt so very resourceful and no one wanted to hear me brag...

For the snow scene, I used a jingle bell. For the "waves," I shook a box of rice. The flute song was something I recorded on the streets of Italy - some old guy was rocking out with his flute and I could hardly not take a video, it was so absurd. I did the horse sounds Monty Python style, except I didn't have any coconuts... I can't remember what I actually ended up using though. And for the scuba diving scene, I squeezed out a wet sponge over a bowl of water.
