Favourite Switch flavour & why: Lemon Meringue, although i don’t dislike any of the Switch flavours, i have to say this one is my all time favourite. It tastes EXACTLY like lemon Meringue, its a lot harder to find than i would like though 😛 honorable mention has to be Wicks for the Retro vibes! But every flavor that becomes my favourite Switch stops making, so I am not saying any more.
Go-to quote: When life hands you lemons, make grape juice, and sit back while the rest of the world wonders how you did it 😉
Fun fact: I lost a hand stand competition with a car guard.
