Anyone else ever eat these as a kid? They can now be found in the retro candy section of some stores. I remember my sister and I going to town on these little delights, saving the cardboard inserts that had points on them...mailing them in for little trinkets.
They're a milk chocolate cup (shaped just like a peanutbutter cup), filled with a whipped marshmallow creme center. There's some coconut sprinkled in there somewhere, if memory serves.
Sunday, when hubby and I were at our favorite Mexican restaurant (you know, the one where I discovered my lap -- see yesterday's blog), we had a couple margaritas. Don't condemn me, I don't do it very often.
Afterwards, we went to Michael's craft store and there it was, that little treat I remember so well from my childhood. You know how they say alcohol makes you stupid? Well, it's TRUE! Yes, I bought one of those tasty little guys.
Later that afternoon, I searched all over the place for that thing and it was nowhere to be found. Must have thrown it out, thinking the bag was emply. Maybe someone was sending me a message, cuz my willpower's been slipping a bit these past few weeks. Whatever the case, I was saved some wasted calories.
And just when I thought it was safe to enter the kitchen again, well, it was this morning after I awoke, there was that blasted thing sitting on top of my lunch cooler! Hubby found it in his truck, along with the leave-in conditioner I'd bought the day before. Now that thing is still in the kitchen and it's talking loudly. My tummy is rumbling in answer.
It can rumble all it wants, I'm not touching it tonight. Might make a treat out of it after the 5K Thursday night. Maybe I'll just throw it out? Naw, probably not. It's not something I indulge in often, so I will savor it whenever I do decide to eat it, and allow for it in that day's calories. Again, please don't condemn me.
