Further to the "cotton candy" prompt, more empty calories of the "moment on the lips" variety. -- Anon Guest
Humans had a knack for making foods that could kill them, Rael reflected. Often within twenty consecutive servings. Not that anyone ever tried to end their lives that way, but the potential was there.
Take cheesecake, for example. And Rael often did. In one neat package, humanity had managed to encapsulate a nigh-lethal combination of fats and sugars. That should have been plenty for the seemingly suicidal humans. But they didn't stop there. They dipped that cheesecake in chocolate - weapons-grade theobromine for certain Havenworlder species - another combination of sugars and fats that made the confection even more lethal.
But that still wasn't enough.
