Remember these?


When it comes to anything with chocolate, I usually want it like my arugula: straight up and on its own. (See a pattern here?) I'll gladly forgo a snickers bar, a mars bar, or other mixed up candy bars for a sliver of pure chocolate. Good chocolate, of course.

But...

My son was spreading out the loot in that glorious post-Trick-or-Treating tradition, and I saw these. I told him how I'd loved them as a kid, and he quickly popped one in his mouth. Just as quickly, it was gone. I explained that you must let the chocolaty outside melt slowly, and then you can feel the igneous-like inside start to crumble...it's all about the texture. He's only 5 so I don't know how much of this lesson he'll remember, but he gave it another try.

The whole texture experience wasn't a big hit. Lucky for me.

Hmm... I never tried eating them that way. To the candy bag!

How can you possibly have this much patience? Don't you ever want to just buy a milk carton of Whoppers and bottoms up?

I am right there with you on the purity of chocolate. Actually, Hershey's Kisses (the originals) are one of my favorites -- a mouthful of pure creamy chocolate!
