I like weird things. Every time I go to a restaurant, my friends know I'm going to order the weirdest thing on the menu. I really never used to be this way. I used to think that when I tried to explore something beyond my comfort zone, I always ended up regretting it. Well, my palate has changed since then and now I prefer the weird. I prefer knowing what I like and what I don't rather than not knowing. I like to try new things and learn more about myself in the process. This particular combination may not be the weirdest thing in the world, but it's definitely a unique variation of a classic, and something I wouldn't have wanted to try in my adolescence.
I have to admit that whenever I thought of lavender, I automatically thought of thyme as its herbaceous counterpart. (And lemon as its citrusy mistress.) But, admittedly, the rosemary was a beautiful compliment. The combination produced a kind of fresh taste, like subtle mint, and I have never felt so light after having donuts before (and I swear it isn't because these are mini sized).
I have a 7-Eleven downstairs from my apartment, and I'd much rather have these than anything striking Homer Simpson's fancy.
