These suckers are delicious and …. moist.
There. I said it. The word we all dread.
But seriously, what other options do we have?! Have you ever looked up synonyms for the word moist?
It will come up with words that I either:
1. never want to hear when reading about food, or
2. sound slightly inappropriate… this is a family friendly blog, people!
Exhibit A: synonym: damp
“That cake was so damp, I just couldn’t resist it!”
Um… no thank you. I don’t want any of your damp cake, lady.
Exhibit B: synonym: clammy
“Those are the clammiest cupcakes I’ve ever had! You have to try one!”
You can go ahead and keep those to yourself, buddy.
Exhibit C: (my personal favorite) synonym: dank
These bran muffins are so dank, man.
Alright. Alright. I might try one. Or two. Or seventeen.
