Marshmallow Santas Replaced By Heart Candy

Well, it’s three days after Christmas, so the retail shops are full of Valentine’s candy, like this generous portion of chocolates from 1949. You realize by next week, that pic will be 70 years old?

I don’t know about you, but I visit Walgreen’s weekly. Mostly to see if they have Arizona green tea on special, but also to peruse the chocolate aisle and grab a box (or five) of Russell Stover. I am familiar with every Russell Stover chocolate, chew, or cream that exists. I could rank them all in order. Roman nougat would be near the top, and I don’t even know what makes it Roman. The pinkness? But only in dark, not milk. I get the yellow box.

And I can never eat just one.

What about you? Do you eat boxed chocolate? Does it remind you of Forrest Gump? Do you prefer Whitman’s?

  1. I love chocolate. In a box or a bag. Russel Stover is fine Whitmans too but I usually eat Hershey’s dark not because it is better just because it is so readily available. And cheap. I just bought a bag of Hershey kisses. Two pounds 4 ounces of pleasure. Of course they are milk chocolate but that’s OK. It is chocolate. What is the biggest box of chocolate you ever got? That one in your picture looks fabulous.

  2. My health insurance carrier changed this year and the new one is affiliated with CVS. So no more Walgreen’s for me after January 1. My choco-kryptonite is Godiva truffles followed by See’s Nuts and Chews. But I consider Costco chocolate covered almonds and/or raisins as crack, too.

    1. Yes, we’ve been through that as well with our prescriptions. Back and forth each new year. Well, you’ll get those four footlong CVS receipts now! Oh, yes, Godiva truffles!
