      *The two continuously regenerating and growing mashedtaters creatures look at each other from across the growing expanse between them. Soon they are both the size of buildings and growing beyond the abilities of the group to feed. Is this it? Is this the moment when there are finally too much mashedtaters at the dinner table?
      Of course not! With additional size come even larger appetite to fuel such size.
      The two mashedtaters creatures, growing hungrier by the minute, immediately start chowing down on each other with voracious appetite. The large piles of mashedtaters begins to shrink.*

      But wouldn't they both expand by the same mass they are eating from each other rather than shrink, scientifically speaking I mean? (because science has a given place in this thread)

      Chocolate on top of waffles, perhaps. Chocolate can stand alone, or in combination with others. Can waffles claim the same?

      Chocolate enhances the quality of most foods it's used in, both nutritionally and aesthetically. (Don't blame it for calories, it's the added sugar that is the root of all mischief.)
