It's a complete travesty, folks. I'm absolutely distraught. Apparently Goldenberg's Peanut Chews have been sold to Just Born (of Peeps fame). Fine. But, here's the thing: they say they're going to alter the recipe to have less molasses taste, more caramel. OH, THE HUMANITY!!!! That's just wrong, wrong, wrong.
In other news, yesterday was Halloween. I managed to NOT eat the entire bag this year. I gave out Kit Kats, Reese's, Mike & Ikes, assorted chocolates shaped like gross ears, fingers and eyeballs, and-- for those too lazy to put together a costume-- rancid lemon granola bars that were so heinous I actually called the company to complain about them.
I just realized that I never wrote about the wondrous Australian package of love that Deb sent me. It was full of crazy, yummy things... Minties, Turkish Taffy, chocolate caramel koala bears, and the BEST, BEST, YUMMIEST, MOST FABULOUS things-- Tim Tams. Ohmygod. These are chocolate-chocolate-chocolate cookies that are so unbelievable. I have since ordered more from the only place you can get them in the US-- Texas, of all places. And, I've already eaten them all. They are a thing of beauty.
