Marge: Who wants pork chops?
Homer: Sorry Marge, I’m afraid this gets my lowest rating ever. Seven thumbs up.
Marge: You always liked my pork chops.
Homer: Marge, I’m sorry, but your cooking’s only got two moves: Shake and Bake.
Marge: You like Shake n’ Bake. You used to put it in your coffee.
Homer: People change, Marge. My palate has grown more sophisticated.
Marge: Oh yeah, what’s a palate?
Homer: Oh…it’s a…special time in a boy’s life when…got to go!

I’ve already discussed that Homer enjoys drinking Buttered Coffee. In that coffee I thought he was using the butter as a replacement for cream. So for the Shake ‘n Bake Coffee, I would say that the Shake ‘n Bake is meant to be a sugar substitute. A terrible, horrible sugar substitute.
- Shake ‘n Bake
Add Shake ‘n Bake to coffee and stir.
Did I mention that this was both terrible and horrible? I mean, it was no Clove Tom Collins Pie, but it was pretty close. Shake ‘n Bake is delicious on chicken or pork, but completely disgusting in coffee. The little Shake ‘n Bake pieces all kind of congealed together to form this lump that I had to try and stir out before I took a sip. It felt like drinking coffee that also had some food at the bottom, which I guess it technically was.
