Hunt’s Snack Pack Ice Cream Sandwich Pudding & More Odd Super Bowl Prop Bets! Yay!
Junk Food Nation, let’s get right into Round 2 of unusual prop bets that are up in Vegas right now (for Round 1, go here). Again, for the uninitiated, you can bet on almost anything in the Super Bowl – from what the coin toss results will be to which player will score the first touchdown in the game. These are called prop bets, or proposition bets. So, let’s dig in!
Will Kelly Clarkson forgot or omit at least one word of the national anthem?
Yes – 5/2
People have been botching the National Anthem left and right, lately, from Christina Aguilera to that random 11 year old girl at some hockey game. You get in front of those lights, and you freeze…but not Kelly Clarkson. NOT MY KELLY CLARKSON. This is a chick who says, “I’m not dieting, I’m not wearing what you want me to, I’m just going to do music, crank out hits, and eat this bag of Funyuns over here.” She’s all about the music. She will not screw this up.
How long will it take Kelly Clarkson to sing the National Anthem?
Over one minute, 34 seconds – 5/6
Under one minute, 34 seconds – 5/6
Here’s another thing about Kelly Clarkson: she’s not a crazy vocal acrobatic psychopath. She’ll give you a little heat, but mostly I think she’ll just belt it straight. Take the UNDER.
Will [the NBC broadcasters] Al Michaels or Cris Collinsworth say “Tebow” during the 1st quarter?
“Tebow” said during 1st quarter – 5/6
“Tebow” not said during 1st quarter – 5/6
Are you kidding? ARE YOU KIDDING? These idiots will probably start the game off talking about Tim Tebow, and never look back. This is the safest money in the book! Bet on it being said in the 1st Quarter, and bet big. God, why don’t I live in Vegas. I’d place my mortgage on this one! They can’t resist…they just can’t resist.
More after the jump. Today’s junk food: Hunt’s Snack Pack Ice Cream Sandwich Pudding!
Pudding??? This is the first time I’ve dealt with the milky gelatinous dessert on this blog. Truth is, I really didn’t grow up eating pudding at all, so it’s still a weird thing for me to eat. Putting milky gloppy sugary substance in my mouth should make all the sense in the world, but it’s a little odd for me. Call me crazy.
By the way, according to Wiki, “In the United States, pudding characteristically denotes a sweet milk-based dessert similar in consistency to egg-based custards, though it may also refer to other types such as bread and rice pudding.” Now you know the difference between custard and pudding…except that custards generally also use milk. WHY MUST YOU BE SO CONFUSING, WIKIPEDIA!?
Picture of a big fat ice cream sandwich splashing down into a trough of pudding? Yeah….I guess that captures what you’re trying to get across. Looks sort of messy. Plus, how hard is the ice cream sandwich hitting the surface of the pudding that it’s causing that sort of splash up? Did someone load it into a rocket launcher and fire it towards the surface??
Contains milk, but needs no refrigeration. Riddle me that, Batman.
I like how the end of the ingredient list just says, “Color Added.” Oh, ok. That’s cool. No vague or anything.
Ah, the familiar little red topped cup that fits into the palm of your hand! Not labeled for resale huh? Well, I happen to know someone with four…well, THREE Snack Pack cups who will sell them to you for $0.20 a piece…
Visually, I can see what Hunt’s is going for – the ice cream sandwich look. But really – I’m only thinking that because the flavor is called “Ice Cream Sandwich.” Otherwise, this just looks like a parfait.
At least when you dig you spoon in, it comes out in layers. Sort of. This was the first time I’d been having pudding in, literally, YEARS. Do people out there eat pudding on a regular basis? Do they? Anyways, bottoms up!
Hunt’s Snack Pack Ice Cream Sandwich Pudding, here’s what you taste like – chocolate and vanilla pudding. Very disappointing showing, IMO. I was looking for some distinct Oreo cookie taste to mimic the sandwich pieces of the Oreo cookie, but it wasn’t there. I was looking for a creamier vanilla flavor to mimic the ice cream, and that wasn’t there. What was there? Chocolate and vanilla pudding, in parfait form.
Did it taste good? Sure it did. It’s pudding, the texture was good, and the flavors (if it was called chocolate and vanilla pudding parfait) were tasty. But did this give me any real sense of ice cream sandwiches? Nope.
What will be the first touchdown celebration?
Spike the ball – 2/3
Lay on the ground – 15/1
Dunk the ball over the goalpost – 5/1
Any kind of dance – 2/1
Kiss a cherleader – 90/1
Kiss a teammate – 35/1
“Tebow” – 10/1
Again, how is Tebowing only 10-1??? Gronk tends to spike it, and Victor Cruz looks to salsa…but everyone else? They have no creativity! Zippy. Tebowing will occur. It might not be the first TD celebration…but it will occur.
For the record, I’m calling the first TD as a short pass to Aaron Hernandez, left side, from Brady, celebrated with a jump-body-high-five.
What will Madonna be using to start the Super Bowl halftime show?
Headset – 1/3
Handheld microphone – 2/1
Who the hell wear’s handheld microphones anymore? What is this, the 1980’s? Dude, Madonna is going to come riding into the stadium wearing a rhinestone body suit on the back of Falcor, the flying dragon dog from the Neverending Story…and when she does, she’ll be wearing a headset microphone. Guaranteed.
Who will be shown on camera first, Archie or Peyton Manning?
Archie is shown first – 6/5
Peyton is shown first – 20/31
Ok, let’s be honest – do YOU know what Archie Manning looks like? I do, only because of this commercial:
So yeah…moving on.
How many times will David Tyree’s 2008 Super Bowl catch be shown be shown on TV during the game?
Over 1 – 2/3
Under 1 – 11/10
Let’s revisit my comment regarding Cris Collinsworth and Al Michaels discussing Tebow in the 1st Quarter: “Are you kidding? ARE YOU KIDDING?” Look, people will be EXPECTING them to show this catch over…and over…and over again. And NBC is a pandering bitch. I’d say the over/under is 3 times show. Take the OVER, and take the bank.
