Yesterday I bought vegan caramel wafers, you know what they taste of? GARLIC!

This is actually a 50-word micro truth because this calamity is ruining all my days at the moment and the only way I can feel even remotely better about this truly awful situation is to share my pain with you all. Thank you.
