I was chatting with Crown Combo’s Mystie the other day. She mentioned Transformer’s M & Ms and a further quest to locate Bumblebee Snickers. Last night as I was purchasing a bottle of 7up at the gas station, I found the candy at the impulse item spot next to the register. Immediately I though of Mystie, and bought a couple.
Here’s the concoction. Snickers is not my favorite treat. Speaking of treats, I remember when I was a kid Sunday was “treat day.” I took treat day very seriously. When church was over, we went to the local convenience store and got to choose one candy. I believe I almost always chose M & M’s or Lik-a-Maid Fun Dip. Moving on. If Snickers did not include marketing for the new Transformer’s movie, I would probably not buy it. The advertising geniuses did their job here.
The wrapper promises nothing more than yellow nougat. I like nougat, it’s a good time. I don’t like Snickers nougat. If there was a candy bar with 3 Musketeers Nougat and the caramel and peanuts covered in chocolate that Snickers offers, I might get fat. Snickers currently, won’t do it.
See that card? It’s my recently acquired movie rental card here in Fancy New Town. I put it next to the bar to show how small it is. Are all Snickers Bars now this teeny? I was going to use a dollar bill, but I couldn’t get it to lie flat, and was not about to drag out the clothes iron for this mission.
I wouldn’t really call this yellow. Goldenrod? It’s definitely one of those Crayola colors in the box of 96 crayons that got no play.
Now, I put this on the floor for pictures. Therefore, I had to eat the other one to report to you that there is no variation on the taste. But let’s be honest, had I not decided to write on it and dropped the bar on the floor out of the package I probably would have followed the ten second rule and finished it off anyhow.
