heaven in tin foil - candy review

Obviously I need to write a post regarding the big holiday party Friday night, but first... I have to share the invention of the year and the demise of any sort of self control. I present to you Hershey's Kisses, Limited Edition CHERRY CORDIAL CREME-FILLED.

Whoa. Do you know what this means?? Do you? It means they have created my fantasy candy. Let me tell you a little story. There was a small girl who had a cool Grandmother who had somehow gotten it in her mind that the small girl loved chocolate-covered cherries. She got said small girl several boxes of these Every. Single. Christmas. But what she didn't know was that the small girl hated any kind of real fruit pieces messing with her chocolate, and that the girl would meticulously suck all the chocolate/goo off the cherry before depositing it back inside the box, then happily consume the chocolate tomb of cherry creme and goo. (This always lead to the unfortunate occurence of someone opening the box of chocolate-covered cherries in excitement only to find a bunch of dried out, sad-looking cherries taking the place of the luscious chocolate candies that were there just 5 minutes ago.)

Anyway. So this candy is awesome because it is the chocolate covered cherry without the cherry. People, it is creme and cherry goo and NO GROSS MARACHINO CHERRY.

Just buy some now because for the love of God, they're LIMITED EDITION.

Oh, YUM! And I even like the cherry ones. But, my blood sugar doesn't. So, will you eat an extra few for me? Please? I give you permission! (grin)

shh--my blood sugar doesn't know that I have been secretly sneaking a few mini-sized Mr. Goodbars from my kids stocking candy hidden in my closet. Don't tell him, OK? (wink)

HEY, I thought I was the only one allowed to do candy reviews! ;-) well, I'll only be doing red candy... you get to have all the chocolate. (I'm all about cherry chocolates)

btw, steph, I don't think the mini's count... at least, I sure didn't count them when I was doing WW!

You can't imagine how difficult it is for me right now to not go all "Guys' Night Out" in this comment and sully your pink girly candy lovefest with a lower-than-gutter-level crude joke regarding the middle clause of the 10th sentence in the 2nd paragraph. Just wanted to share.

WW isn't what should stop me from the minis, Babs. Diabetes is. Do you know many diabetics who eat candy all the time? neither. Although, they are actually making some now that are sugar free that taste somewhat like the real thing, like Reeses even. It disturbs me that they can make it without sugar though...something seems wrong in that.

Man I HATED the cherry goo. One time I even cracked open the chocolate shell and drained out as much goo as possible before eating the cherry and the chocolate.
