Zero topics: The bitterness of the sweetest candy.

I looked back in time where life was like a solidified sugar under the wrap in a piece of shiny wax paper. I could still taste the balance of sugar in the mint flavour one, the smell of strawberry and the colour stain of apple on my lips. I just let the sugary flavour stays a bit in my mouth. But just like a dream, the sweetness of candy wasn’t last forever, as time goes by the sweetness faded and the bitterness was the flavour I savour.

Love turns to bitterness for Mourinho as Inter storm the Stadio Olimpico

José Mourinho cancelled his press conference before Roma’s match against Inter on Saturday, denying us a window into his emotions as he prepared to face his former club in Serie A for the first time. Eleven years had passed since he left the Nerazzurri in floods of tears, hugging Marco Materazzi before disappearing into a Madrid night after completing an unprecedented Treble win.

Totti bitterness Rome: 'I don't see champions ...'

Totti becomes Global Ambassador of DigitalBits, main sponsor of Rome from this summer, and according to many, the equation was soon done in recent days: it is a way for the former captain to return to Rome. "Far from it - explained Totti himself -. The fact that he is Digitalbits ambassador does not mean that I will return to Rome". The door, however, does not close it completely. "Even if I don't know what the future holds for me, for sure from now on I will have more opportunities to talk to the club - he continued -. Then maybe in the future anything could happen, this is true". So Saturday's meeting at the Olimpico with the Friedkins was "a simple greeting",Totti underlined from the splendid setting of the Fuksas Lantern where the partnership with DigitalBits for the next 3 years was made official with a profit of almost 5 million euros. It is then impossible not to comment on the moment that Mourinho's Roma is experiencing in the league and the ideas on what the team is missing to make the leap in quality are very clear. "To win you need players, an important coach and a club that helps and makes you feel at home. But the primary thing is the players, that's the basis." Then he adds to the dose: "I don't want to despise the current squad, it's important but there are no champions. He has players who can do well in a team context." A thought, after all, close to what Josè Mourinho reiterates almost weekly at the press conference.However, there is no lack of trust in society.

Review: Hardwood Spiked Seltzer Bitter Citrus

Hardwood Spiked has essentially created a cocktail that inverts the role of ingredients where the bitters are featured front and center and the spirit and fruit are mere accoutrements. These 100 calorie seltzers use a corn whiskey base that “extracts 8 organic botanicals prior to oak barrel aging… balanced with organic maple syrup, though dry not sweet. All natural and no chemicals or preservatives.” The base whiskey is undeniably the herbal-flavored whiskey The Original Brodsky which was released in 2016 and reviewed here at Drinkhacker.

Battling bitterness

In 1 Kings 2, King David is on his death bed having a conversation with his son Solomon, who will succeed him as the king of Israel. David tells Solomon to kill a man named Shimei after He is gone. Wow! David orders a murder right before his death. The backstory is that years before, there was a civil war in Israel. Absalom, David’s son, led a revolt against him causing David to flee the capital. On the way Shimei, came out and cursed David. David’s men offered to kill him but David refused. Later when David returned to power, Shimei apologized. David promised to never kill him, but now sees the opportunity to technically keep his word by having his son exact revenge. Disappointing! In some ways, David was amazing, but here he exposes a real dark side. I think David’s actions are a result of an unforgiving bitterness that he allowed to grow in his heart.

What It Really Means If Your Olive Oil Tastes Bitter

Olive oil is a pantry staple that's in most people's kitchens, but with so many choices in brand and type, it can be daunting to know how to pick a high-quality oil or even how to tell if your oil is good once you've had it for a while. For some home cooks, bitterness in olive oil might raise suspicion. When served in small doses and balanced by other flavors, slightly bitter notes can be welcome in many dishes. But when an ingredient tastes extremely bitter, it could be unappetizing or construed as a hint that the item has gone bad. With olive oil, however, it's actually the opposite.

Off the Shelf: A dose of bitter with the sweet

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving, or at least one that brought gratitude to mind. Delicious food, of course, has set my mind to thinking about flavors. I’ve decided that bitterness is a very misunderstood flavor. To be clear, I’m not talking about bitterness as an emotion. Being bitter emotionally has been linked to a number of health problems. No, I’m just talking about bitter food, the kind that leaves that strange taste in your mouth that has you questioning your ability to make good decisions. Much maligned by many a patient taking medicine, bitterness is viewed as something to be avoided. As a side note, yes, for the most part, bitter tastes are caused by a variety of chemical compounds that are very good for you. Unfortunately, medical research has shown that people can often mistake sour tastes for bitter even though the chemicals associated with each taste are quite different. Yes, bitter has a bad reputation.
