M-Azing Minis

It appears that the mgr of the Indian/pastry shop - which was gonna be today’s item - isn’t gonna call me back (doesn’t he realize how important NYCE is???), so this new prod is a last-minute sub-out, one sufficiently odd to make fun of: M-Azing minis: "individually-wrapped bite-sized choc candies w/ m&ms minis mixed in". How insane is this? 1. They take m&ms, originally devised w/ a candy shell so you could eat them out of hand. 2. Shrink them. 3. Stir into choc (a bar form exists of this). 4. Make that bite-sized and wrap in foil. Nuts! Maybe it’s to compete w/ the hershey’s kiss? Anyway, it comes in 2 flavs, PB & crunchy, and as long as we’re kissing m&m’s ass, they’ve launched (the previously special-edition-only) dark-choc m&ms as a year-round product.

Can you divulge the name of the Indian pastry shop? (Just curious.)

Good news about the dark chocolate M&Ms. Missed those the last time around.

I like the minipic to go with the mini-things.

Ed Grimley and the boys filmed their first season of SCTV at ITV in Edmonton. I knew the lead camerman. He had some insane stories about John Candy, et al back then...

ex: I'd wager that it's Indus Cafe in plano - kinda new but sadly underwhelming.

SCTV was some of the best sketch comedy ever to be broadcast -- far better than anything on SNL even in its heyday.

To this day, I can't hear "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina," without think of Andrea Martin as Indira Ghandi and Joe Flaherty as Che Guevara (played by Slim Whitman) in the musical "Indira."

What IS "Indian pastry"???

I'd rather read about M&Ms any day.
