You owe me one, Mr. Wonka.

March 3, 2010


One of these chewy Sprees was delicious (in a very unnaturally-colored/ full-of-chemicals/ my advancing-age-is-preventing-me-from-really-enjoying-it kind of way), and one was not. In fact, one almost cracked one of my teeth when I decided I had taken enough pictures of it. Can you guess which one?

He's like a cute little sidekick, idn't he?

Speaking of weird-shaped candy, one of my favorite things to say when offering someone a chocolate-covered raisin is, “People who eat Raisinets are the bravest people in the world, because you’re just trusting that that’s a raisin in there.”

    My least favorite malformed candy is a malformed malted milk ball. Instead of being crunchy and melty, the inside is already melted and chewy. Blech.

    I have an almost-empty Sam’s size jug of raisinets on my counter. Susana has been supplying her friends at school. I pretend I’m eating fruit when I eat them! 🙂

    Why is it that Raisins and Prunes are the only fruits that get a new identity when they are dried out?

    That is wild-colored packaging.

    Wow Lauren, you were very brave to eat that deformed Spree! I always throw mutant candies away. I also pick out any irregulars from my cereal.
