It was with great joy that I discovered a dark loveliness today. A dark loveliness that needs to be shared.
Oh, my gracious. I saw a commercial for this yesterday. I wanted to immediately go hunt one down and devour it. But life got in the way of being ridiculous. Actually, do you know what got in the way? A Girl Scout Cookie Sales meeting! I mean, really now. It's November! But I did get to see this year's new variety. I'm not impressed. They also are not bringing back the Lemonades. I'm not impressed. Look how easily I digress! Back to important matters:
So today was a full day. This afternoon I had an "appointment". One of those screenings that you get to do as a celebration of making it to 40. I won't go into the details that I'm really wanting to, because certain people read this blog that may be damaged by such information. I'll try to find a way around it. Let's see. There was a great tightness involved. And because the machines were all brand-new digital, they got to add in a radiation technician representing the company to the room ("training on the machine" was mentioned. I don't know.). Then they also asked if it would be okay for another gal to witness the blessed event, as she was "training" also. Well, you know, 2's company, 3's a crowd, and 4's a party, so why not?! And it was a party! I kid you not, there was whistling involved. I was feeling quite flattered until I realized she was "applauding" the fabulous image captured, not the...object. Sorry.
ANYWAY! After such an event, I felt a great need to reward myself, so I ran into Target to see if I could find the dark lovelies. And, oh. It is something to experience! For the sake of experimenting, I have now tried to regular-sized Reeses and the minis. I would highly suggest the minis. The chocolate to peanut butter ratio is much better. In the regular size, the dark chocolate flavor overpowers the peanut butter a bit, so you don't get a true Reeses experience. But in the mini? Oh. Perfection. I do not know why it took until 2009 for the Hershey company to present this to me, I mean us. But thank you, Hershey. You came at just the right time.
