Fish Sticks and Custard and Doctor Who

We celebrated the premiere of the new Doctor Who season on Saturday with - what else? - fish sticks and custard.

When we first met the 11th Doctor last year, of course, the young Amelia Pond offers a variety of foods to feed his newly regenerated body, but each one - the yogurt, the apple, even the bacon - is rejected, spit out, or deemed evil.  The ultimate and unlikely winner is fish sticks dipped in custard. 

Naturally, I didn't have high hopes for how well this would taste, so we went with minimal effort - Van De Kamp's Frozen Crunchy Fish Sticks and Jell-O Instant Pudding in Banana Cream. 

But guess what?  It wasn't bad at all. 

The fish sticks were nice and crunchy (I don't know why, but I was greatly reassured by the fact that the fish stick instructions said explicitly that microwave cooking is not recommended), and they didn't so far so badly dipped in the sweet, banana cream pudding.  Perhaps not the ideal dipping sauce, but not nearly as weird as I anticipated.  I finished off all the fish sticks this way! 

Why does Foodgoat look so sad then?  Maybe it's because he had to watch Doctor Who in standard definition instead of high definition.  Come on, DirecTV, carry BBC America in HD!


  1. We don't have him in high def either. But at least it was letterbox'ed so it wasn't too bad.

    Good on you for actually trying the fish sticks and custard! I told hubby I wanted to try, he said I sure can experiment on the night he's out with his friends. LOL.

    Hello. I found you via a 'fish sticks and custard' search this post-Thanksgiving week 2011. With the wonders of streaming media, am just now getting introduced to Doctor #11. Wanted to let you know I linked to this post on my blog: meliovore.wordpress.com. Great design and site, I'll come back again.
