Swiss Desert

They way Sheldon, (one of the lead characters, I don't know if you watch the show?) described it Voleharemusse was a kind of pudding with almonds, (maybe like Blancmange.) At the end of the episode He gets the flu and throws it up. The show is now in syndication and I
have been watching it a lot.

Swiss Desert

On a rerun of The Big Bang Theory Sheldon mentions a Swiss Desert called Volharemusse,
(I don't know how it's spelled, it was prounced Vole-Hare-Mosse.) I googled it and looked for it under "Swiss Deserts" in Wikipedia, no luck. Has anybody out there heard of this, or was it just made up for the show? (like the game The Mystic Knights Of Ka'a.)

Motorhead Shiraz

Upon further research, I found out that it's made by Brocken Back wineries in Southeast Australia. A Swedish wine blogger gave it a C, (average) rating. Wine Spectator had an article
on it but did not rate the Heavy Metal Shiraz.

Motorhead Shiraz

On VH1 Classic's That Metal Show they introduced a product called Motorhead Shiraz, a red wine from the Band Motorhead. If a Venn Diagram was made a red wine drinker and a Motorhead fan, I suspect that intersecting point would be rather small. I've always associated that band with whiskey, beer, and amphetimines. I wonder if that wine would rate above 80 in Wine Spectators rating system, (which is kind of low.) I have a feeling very few people out there has tried this product, or have any other experiences with other novelty products, (like Three Stooges Beer.)

Family Dollar Cookies

Last week went to the Family Dollar and bought cookies that are pretty similar to Girl Scout Cookies. My question is by selling a product similar to a fundraising tool for a non proffit organization, does Family Dollar hurt that organization? (Maybe by buying said product i'm complicit also, I'm not a perfect person.) Maybe I'm overthinking this.

For the record the Girl Scout Cookies taste better.
