Choc covered Craisins

Does a certain blog pretty much exist for limited-edition products? Yes. Are ltd-eds nonetheless starting to get old? Keep crying wolf, nobody's gonna buy it anymore. 'specially when, as in these choc-covered Craisins, ltd ed (or in this case, "special edition") is code for "test run", i.e. if it sticks against the wall, keep selling it. The point of a ltd ed izzat it’s special and you can’t get it after a certain time. If they keep hawking product intros as ltd eds, well, a certain blog will prob keep covering it anyway (esp since these are pretty good, like Raisinets but w/ a little more sweet-tart kapow), but expect some pretty petulant pouting from hereon in.

I've been growing my own mold for YEARS without help from anybody.

When will we see choc-covered prunes?

Chocolate-covered prunes would be just fine with me. Pitted, of course.

TG: Need I ask where you got these little chocobuggers?

You all need to get up to date! Haven't you seen that they don't call them prunes anymore? They're dried plums now.

The funny thing is that cranberries are praised as some kind of health food, that they're good for you, but then they cover them in chocolate!

I HEAR CHOCOLATE IS A HEALTH FOOD, TOO. (OR WOULD SOOF SAY "HEALF FOOD?) ANYWAY, I TRIED THAT GAMBIT AND DIDN'T GET ANY.

Thanks for the limited edition explanation. Now I understand. Instead of "introducing" a new product, they call it a ltd ed so that if it flops, they won't have egg all over their face. How about calling it guinea pig food?

Guinea pig IS food, in certain parts of Latin America ...

"Cuy, alternately called Cobayo or conejillo de indias is a guinea pig or cavy. The taste is compared to rabbit, thought delicious, and though difficult to accept for people in other countries who regard guinea pigs as pets, the cuy is a staple of Andean cuisine. They are called 'cuy' for the sound they make cuy, cuy."
