I have had a wicked sweet tooth lately, which is pretty unlike me. Normally, I am down with the salty snacks, but lately…I think it all started when that leftover Halloween candy went on sale at CVS. I have eaten more Butterfingers in the last 3 weeks than I really like to admit.
I was poking around Trader Joe’s at lunch the other day to find something for lunch, and something to reward myself each time I click out of Firefox and get back to work…and I found these, and my cavities started aching immidately: Something called Gummy Tummies. Basically, little gummy penguins with beer bellies full of fruit-flavored syrup. Lime, cherry, strawberry. I might have preferred a non-animal shape, as the cherry flavor is made from natural cherry juice, which is the same color as, well, blood. Blood leaking from the torso of a headless penguin.Yeah, real cute, TJ, real cute.
Oh-ho, Marie and her neuroses.
