i used to love vanilla slices and eat them all the time - until about 4 or 5 years ago i went to my local bakery and got one ... and it had a cockroach leg in it. i had only taken like 2 bites, threw the rest out and i have probably only had about 1 or 2 vanilla slices since. i still love love LOVE them but find it sooo hard to bring myself to eat them
i have only been back to that same bakery once, and when i did, i got food poisoning from a beef and bacon pie and it was that bad that i had like 3 days off work!! i did get over the fear of eating pies after that little incident, but still have an extreme paranoia about food poisoning.
