Discovered something when a new product came over the transom since last week's Candy Roundup -- and that was the fact that we had a transom. Did you know this? Why doesn't anyone tell me these things?
Also, it occurred to us that Mars is now making these giant M&M's -- M&M's Mega, they're called. I'd seen the package before but finally got curious enough to buy.
|But they don't MEGA MELT in your hand.|
Seems like these Megas would be the bullies of the M&M's world:
But when you get down to it, they're horribly outnumbered by the little M&M's of all the many varieties, which are: plain, peanut, peanut butter, crispy, minis, dark mint, almond, pretzel, dark chocolate, and dark chocolate peanut. I think the little guys can hold their own.
Plus, in May they'll have another flavor: caramel. I do not think I can contain my excitement over this development.
Another update to a post last week: The house that still had its Christmas tree up in the picture window? Took it down over the weekend. So they either got out of the hospital / lost the bet / won the bet / lost the dare / won the dare / remembered it was up / quit the weird sect / decided it was dumb to have it up all year, or next of kin came to the house, or Little Jimmy died / got well / got off his butt and took it down, or they saw my blog post and got ashamed. Or something else.
I have to admit I was sad to see it go, though; in these times of ephemeral relations and short attention spans, I have to admire such firm persistence, even in a preposterous cause.
