Candy

I made a run last night to Wal-mart around 8pm. There were a few items I needed and the gas station near there has lower prices and my tank was near empty. It gave me something to do while waiting for Life to come on at 10pm.

Unfortunately I was seduced by the dark side once I entered the store. Chocolate specifically and candy in general. I just wasn't able to withstand that powerful siren call of sugar.

Just look at what I got! Talk about a potential sugar rush. And some nice prices too.

Those Hershey bars are 8 ounces, not the typical 5 ounces and Wally World has reduced the price recently to $1.25. That's only $2.50 a pound! I bought 8 but I suspect before the week is over a few more will find their way into my candy storage area. Like 20 or 30. *shiver* I don't like chocolate all the time but when I go through a chocolate phase--I can eat a pound everyday for a week or so.

Food Lion had a 2 for 1 sale on the 5 ounce bars last week and I picked up 6 and went through them in 2 days. Mmmm.

And check out this new variety of Hershey Kiss. Have you seen this flavor before?

I'd seen the Cherry Cordials before, and even posted about them, but I've not seen the Toffee Crunch flavor before now. I've not tried them yet but probably will in the next day or so. I want to try them before I drive by a Wal-mart again. If they're good I'll want to buy more!

And getting back to television, those two episodes of Life this week were pretty good. That's a nice way to leave the series going into the holiday break. As for Dirty Sexy Money---they really ended this week's episode with a bit of a shocker. Talk about blatant manipulation. *whew*

MSNBC has an article about men's health and #5 is "Indulge your chocolate craving". They suggest eating two 25 calorie Hershey's Kisses daily to cut risk of heart disease by half. Looks like you're on your way to living forever!

I have like 4 episodes of Life to watch - I am not cool with this multiple episodes per week thing, I have a hard enough time keeping up with one per week!! I know that after this week, most everything will be on a break for the holiday, but at this rate, I will not get caught back up before the new stuff gets started - gee this school work thing really sucks, it is messing up my plans for what'e really important... TV!!

mmmmm I love sugar babies. I wish I could eat candy without it going to straight to my hips.

I have not tried the toffee crunch kisses yet.

My office recently inhaled 3 pounds of the candy cane kisses. Within about 30 minutes or so.

I love the cordials, but prefer other brands instead.

I wish I could remember that though it tastes great it really does make me feel really yucky. But I do love chocolate...

Can you even shut the door on your huge candy hutch?? My god! I have never known someone to like sugary stuff as much as you do! Is it a substitute for something far more fun?

My butt grew just looking at your stash...

Good thing that stuff is legal....or we'd be having to stage an intervention right about now. Holee smokes!
