Do we have an official food for the top spinning world?
« on: July 06, 2018, 12:39:40 AM »

I do not believe we do, outside of conical shaped candy down at the Big Top Candy Shop in Austin, Texas.

This evening I picked up a wrapper on the street and it made me laugh.  On this side it says "TORNADOS" (no E before the S like in the weather phenomenon).  I thought it was just a hot dog wrapper.  As I looked closer I noticed a red spinning tornado under the first two letters and under the bright yellow letters that say TORNADOS it says "a whirlwind of flavor".  After some research I found out that these are not hot dogs at all.  These are rolled up breakfast food items made by the Ruiz food company and they come in all kinds of flavors.  Looks like Walmart sells them.

Has anyone else seen these?  Has anyone else eaten any of these?  Has anyone else had another food item they would like to nominate as our official food?

This is food and top related, but a bit of a tangent. One is from Japan, the other from Venezuela.

On this side it says "TORNADOS" (no E before the S like in the weather phenomenon).
That's the correct spelling in Spanish of the plural tornadoes.

The box of chocolates I bought at the airport in Tokyo:



But more to the point, there used to be chocolate molds in the form of tops:
