Monkeying Around

I've read this book roughly 73 times in the past 48 hours. It was a gift from The Connections' Wee One to the Sugar Baby and he is obsessed with it. The story goes like this: George (who, by the way, doesn't have a tail, despite being called "everyone's favorite monkey") and the Man With the Yellow Hat are out for a drive when they see a chocolate factory. They stop in, and while Yellow Hat Man is busy flirting with the sales girl, George sneaks into the factory and accidentally speeds up the conveyor belt. Hijinks ensue, but George ends up saving the day. This is my favorite page in the book:
When I was little, the Baroness and I would play a game where we take a page in a catalog and rate the items on the page in the order we liked them. Here's my pick for this page:
1) Orange fluff
2) Banana Cream
3) Nougat
4) Marshmallow
5) Caramel
6) Truffle
7) Fudge
It makes me wonder why there's no such thing as banana cream chocolates. Have you, dear Yumster, ever seen one? What flavor chocolates would you like to try that you've never seen before?
