Q. What are your favorite flavors of taffy?
A. Citrus flavors. Other stuff is too sweet.

Q: What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
A: I like sorbet. I had two that were really good, one lime and ginger, one lime and lychee. Both were light, neither was too sweet. For ice cream, I like most kinds of chocolate and hate raisins, but I only eat the non-dairy stuff. Dairy ice cream is gross.
