hershey's candy cane kisses

pls forgive the presence of yet-another item on yet-another ltd-edition seasonal mint sweet, but it seems best to get them done w/ and this one's unique in its class: Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses, a white-choc kiss w/ crunchy candy bits mixed within. they're unique enough that it's easy to keep eating them, possibly even beyond the point where you still like them. but - and let me state the obvious here - they're good 4 people who like mint. anyway, see, that wasn't so bad, and now next wk can start fresh w/ fully-linked items on new restaurants (a new sushi place in richardson), ice creams (bluebell's doing French vanilla cappuccino), & maybe coffee drinks (dunkin donuts just intro'd a very starbucksian "gingerbread latte")

was there ever a product that begged more for the silly snowflake-frame photo treatment?

I LIKE the limited-edition product reviews! Seeing them, individually, is like looking inside the minds of the very strange people who run those companies. In the aggregate, they tell us just how needy our taste buds are.

Company: "Hmmm, how about taking left over cocoa butter, sugar and milk, and mixing it with all those candy canes our subsidiary has left over from last year?"

Consumer: "They're unique enough that it's easy to keep eating them, possibly even beyond the point where you still like them."

i'm not going to comment on the mint thing, but someone mentoned last night that thursday is thanksgiving! isn't it a week early? or maybe i thought it had passed since everyone seems all set for christmas. you can tell i am not a big holiday person. like them nice and quiet, but i treat myself extra good on that day -- when i realize it is that day.

anyway, a festive, happy, delicious thanksgiving to all of you.

Have you ever tried Crisco kisses? They help one to relax.

I can't decide which to bring to my family's thanksgiving feast, brass knuckles or a stiletto.

Would those be for you, or the mutt?

I'm not sure where she picked it up, but the dog is quite skilled in kung-fu.

I suggest both.

Personally, I always select a Corsican vendetta knife for the holiday season.

To Twisted Link: For family get-togethers and holiday dinners, I recommend bringing a nice bottle of rose. Very popular these days. Covers many different kinds of foods.

Though I like to give the very best during the holidays, 95 bucks for a stick pin is a little much. Besides, people generally like things that are homemade . It shows I care.

Pies are also a nice bring-along. Pumpkin is a favorite this time of the year. You don't have to bake your own. Many stores have them baked and ready to go.

If you are too frustrated to post in proper English, perhaps it is best to just walk it off.
