About

Fatty Bloom is full of nonsensical thoughts or ramblings about things in my every day life, many which center on food (the unhealthy kind).

The term fatty bloom comes from a phenomenon seen on food items (like chocolate) or art objects (which is where I usually see it) where they exhibit a white haze, bloom or crystals on the surface. This is caused by fats (in particular triglycerides) in food or in materials applied to art objects (often in the form of oils or waxes) altering due to temperature changes. The triglycerides melt and then recrystallize on the surface of the food item or art object.

Fatty bloom is also what happens to my body after I eat the foods I write about.
