"Curate Snacks" is an especially unfortunate name if you're a Sweeney Todd fan: http://www.tcm.com/mediaroom/video/469616/Sweeney-Todd-Video-Clip-A-Little-Priest.html

Jessica: I can't believe I missed that -- I'm a huge fan of Sondheim and Sweeney!

For those unfamiliar with this great musical, here's the relevant lyric from "A Little Priest," Mrs. Lovett's cheery carol to the tastiness of human flesh after it's baked into her meat pies:

Not as hearty as bishop, perhaps
But then again
Not as bland as curate, either.

What a strange, cryptic, un-food-like name. I want to read it as, "cutrate." For some reason, I want to see an acute accent, as in "curaté." I assume Abbott did focus groups. So I must also not be in the target market.

I will buy a bag of each variety, inscribe a catalogue number along the bottom edge of each one, so that it would not be too visible; and then put them away in my cupboard for future reference. They would be too precious to consume.

Susan: See, you're a curator!
