"Snips and snails, and puppy dog tails; that's what tiny lads are made of," says an ancient nursery rhyme. Of course, the next stanza answers the related question: "What are small girls composed of?" Little girls are composed of sugar and spice and everything beautiful. They have a touch of heaven in their eyes and a smile on their lips. They're like angels walking among us. Sugar and spice and everything nice make up little girls' bodies-and their brains too, it seems-the way salt makes food taste better or pepper adds heat to dishes. Without these ingredients, which parts of our diet would be missing?
Boys are made of meat and potatoes. That's right! Meat and potatoes are all boys need to be healthy. Even though most boys today eat more processed foods than meat and potatoes, those are still the main components of a healthy boy's diet. Beef is high in protein and low in fat. Chicken has less fat than beef but just as much protein. Pork has more fat but also more calcium than beef or chicken. Fish is full of healthful fats and contains zinc, iodine, and B vitamins. Potatoes are good for your bones and muscles thanks to vitamin C and potassium. The list goes on and on. There are many different foods that make up a healthy diet, but this is what we usually think of when we talk about nutrition for boys.
Girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice.
Female, kind and cheerful Possibly inspired from the 19th-century nursery song "What Are Little Boys Made of?" in which females are made of "sugar and spice and everything good." My son is a holy monster, but my daughter, thank heavens, is sugar and spice and everything beautiful.
Sugar is a sweet substance derived from plants or sugar crystals obtained by boiling down fruit juice or extracting fermentable sugars from corn or other grains. Sugar is used to make sweets, which are foods that contain a lot of sugar.
Spice is a seasoning composed of herbs and spices. They add flavor and aroma to food. Herbs are leaves from plants such as basil, rosemary, and thyme. Spices are seeds, fruits, flowers, wood, roots, bark, and sticks with flavors that are attractive to eat. They include cinnamon, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, and pepper.
Sweet is a pleasing taste experienced when you eat something tasty. Food that is sweet includes desserts, cakes, cookies, candy, and pop rocks.
Beautiful is a pleasant feeling experienced when you look at something appealing. This phrase does not mean that girls must be pretty to attract men. It just means that women are naturally inclined toward kindness and cheerfulness.
SUGAR, CHOCOLATE, SOY LECITHIN, VEGETABLE OIL (PALM, SHea Nut, and/or Illipe Nut), ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, PGPR (emulsifier), ALKALI-PROCESSED COCOA It has soy components. Peanuts, nuts, eggs, milk, and wheat may be present.
Abuelita means grandmother in Spanish. This name was given to the hot chocolate because it tastes more like dessert than a drink. The recipe contains sugar, chocolate, oil, and water or milk. There are many variations on this theme, with different ingredients used instead.
Oil will prevent the beverage from being stored for too long. Also, if you want your hot chocolate to be thicker, add some cornstarch until smooth. Finally, for an extra flavor boost, sprinkle some cinnamon or nutmeg over the top!
Nowadays, there are lots of brands that sell abuelita-style hot chocolates. The original recipe contains sugar, chocolate, oil, and water or milk.
Swisher Sweets are created using cigar tobacco fragments (they term it "cut filler," but it's actually scraps), doused with "flavorings," and rolled up in a tobacco sheet wrapper (homogenized tobacco—basically paper made out of tobacco and other unspecified substances)...
...or, as they say themselves: "A mild, sweet smoke for the time being." As far as I know, they're still making them today—but not really like they used to. For one thing, they stopped using cut filler in 1980; instead, they use a full-leaf mixture of tobaccos that have been fermented/dried before rolling.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got some more research to do on my computer....
