A does seem to be || but ' that had been ' seems out of place.
I would have picked it if it would have been ' in crushed strawberries '.
Thats my line of thought. :roll:

Doesn't C change the meaning in some sense? It got rid of "bath-tub". Not that i have anything special for bathtubs, but i think getting rid of "bathtub" modifies the intent of the author. Thoughts?

A: I want to have a bath in honey, chocolates, and the kitchen sink filled with germs. Sounds correct? No way. A is out for lacking ||ism

Yea can go for a straight C.

Jus a doubt guys. It luks that the idiom also is being tested here. Is the correct idiom "found X to b Y" or "found X that Y"

:yikes

nice humor...

I agree with C... A just doesn't cut here because we assume that cold milk and crushed strawberries are filling the tub as much as the caviar. thus A isn't parallel

C
