woah... this place is intense.

maybe I'm just like my mother, she's never satisfied...but when it comes to choose from literally an Ocean of different flavors, my poor mind gets confused and all I do is a mess.

So, to me, the Honeymee spot nextdoor presents such an easier spectrum of choices, it makes my life easier, but when it comes to the broad  variety of Brian's I first timer, I blacked out, and went all crazy with a mix of tiger's blood ( yesssss),mai tai, passion fruit and (why not, considering any extra flavor after 3 is only $0.25))) cherry cola, melon, and, finally, blue hawaii...

What did my taste buds retain of this flavor orgy?

Don't know, my sugar rush brought some 3 hours worth of amnesia, and all I recall is having a deep blue tongue for almost one full day.
