Simple is better than exotic for some foods

Jpan99 | Jul 11, 2014 11:36 AM

I like a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting.
I don't want a key lime cupcake with pomegranate/coconut filling and strawberry balsamic frosting (a la Cupcake Wars.)

I like Belgian chocolate gelato, sweet cream or peach ice cream.
I don't want burnt caramel ice cream with chocolate covered sea salt pretzels and swirls of coconut marzipan.

I like a honey dip donut or maybe a jelly stick.
I don't want a chocolate cake donut covered in white chocolate, drizzled with mocha and topped with espresso bean

Some foods just shouldn't be gussied up!
