I Ate Frankenstein’s Brains!

Paying a visit to Knott's Scary Farm has become an annual Halloween tradition, for it always has a great blend of haunted mazes, spooky rides, and a terribly cheesy public hanging of a current popular celebrity (this year it was Rebecca Black). While the mazes haven't changed much in the past two years, it was still a blast checking them out again - especially my favorite "Dia de los Muertos" 3D haunt and the always amusing haunted log ride. The one thing I did take photographs of while there was the amazing desserts we were served as part of our monster dinner. Behold!

Frankenstein's Monster mousse dessert from Knott's Scary Farm!

Up until this event, I had never tried mousse before, so I'm glad that my first time eating the dessert was out of a monster's skull. It was a mint mousse stuffed into a chocolate head of Frankenstein's monster and it was absolutely delicious. They even added a raspberry drizzle to it so that it appeared his brains were bleeding all over the place. The raspberry didn't really mix well with the mint, but the rest of it was so good that...

The brains of Frankenstein's Monster were minty and delicious!

...well, as you can see, I really enjoyed it. They had a few other flavors such as a chocolate cauldron filled with strawberry mousse and another filled with almond mousse, but let's be honest here... who in their right mind is going to pass up a chance to eat the minty brains of Frankenstein? That kind of thing only happens once in a lifetime if you're lucky. Just like Winston told Ray, "If somebody asks you if you're a god, you say yes!", if somebody asks you if you want to eat Frankenstein's minty brains, you say yes too.

So yeah, I grabbed a fork and hollowed out his skull without ever looking back.

In related news, not to break with tradition, I made sure to get another photo of myself hanging upside-down in a coffin at Knotts:

Hanging out at Knott's Scary Farm never gets old!

While we're on the subject, in case you haven't seen them already, be sure to check out some of my previous Knotts Scary Farm Halloween maze pictorials: Knott's Scary Farm 2009 and Knott''s Scary Farm 2006.

Ha ha nice post -RoG-... but what if in a strange & twisted series of events, Frankenstein's Monster decides to snack on "your" brains??!!! I mean, after having hung upside down in the coffin, all that minty goodness has had to make your brain equally as Minty delicious!!!

SewnonSmile - I don't think any monster will dare try devouring me. You get a lot of street cred in the world of horror once you've consumed the brains of Frankenstein's Monster.

Ferrit - We didn't take any more photos of Knotts Scary Farm this year, since there really wasn't much new to see. They had a few new mazes that were uneventful, and the awesome mazes were ones that have been there the previous two years. It'd be like rehashing the same photos from 2009. I'm sure we'll check out some other haunted attractions this month though, and if we do, I'll do my best to take more photos of 'em.

That's an impressive chocolate Frankenstein! I've only had mousse once in my life. It was mint mousse inside a chocolate-mint moose head.

mmm mousse is the most delicious foam in existence. Fuck meringue.

With my work schedule - you Rog are my pipeline to all things Halloween. Spooky World/Haunted New England is 5 MINUTES FROM MY HOUSE - and I don't have the time to go. So I've gotta live vicariously through your picture posts... I thank you for that, it's how I get my yearly Halloween fix.

In addition to RoG's cred, think of what could possibly be in that madman's brain. Monsters are health conscious too you know. :)

That is one original Halloween treat. Even though the raspberry didn't compliment the taste it wouldn't be right to have a decapitated head without a pool a blood. The presentation is awesome. Wish I had a bad ass Halloween maze like that close to where I live. Hope they change it up a bit next year though.

Nice post. I never thought Frankenstein's brains would be this tasty.

That looks so amazing! Was the rest of your meal monster themed, or was it monsterous portions? Please tell me they at least had spooky names for the food.

Ferrit - More than happy to share all the photos I can so you guys can feel like you were there!

thespookywaffle - I wish. They had great spooky decorations 'n all, but the food was all normal and didn't have any Halloweeny names. The pasta 'n sauce wasn't called "blood worms" or anything like that. But yeah, the desserts were pretty spectacular. If you check out this page and scroll down a bit, you'll see how they display the food each year. It's a really nice set up.

Nice. There really should be more brain based foods.I cant believe in all my years i still haven't been to Knot's Berry Farm, it looks fun from your pictorials of years past. The only other Halloweeny productions i'v been to in a while besides Universal's Halloween Haunt is the Queen Mary and that was a good one, and i'v been wanting to hit that one again.

RoG, you're underestimating the "Law of the West" attractive: once you've made your reputation as the fastest gun in the county some guys are bound to show up at you door in search of easy fame.
I'd say now that you've established yourself as a legendary monster slayer/gobbler you should watch your back for Dracula or the Mummy trying to get a sneak stab at the guy who ate Frankenstein('s monster')s brain.
