**disclaimer: those in my family on the garns side have
a fixation on food texture. i am not sure why we even
notice it- but we do and it makes a HUGE difference to
us. i totally remember my mom saying to her brothers-
while eating something- 'oooh. do you know what would
be good with this?' and she'd go in depth about something
that would take something good to the next level. then they'd
agree and say 'or this...' or 'yes, and then a little of...'
i am now my mother and have caught myself in the very same
reese's peanut butter- hearts.
the name alone stirs my soul.
could there be anything more perfect?
i am not a fan of the regular reese's pb cups.
1- i don't care for the hard ridges the paper creates
2- the pb seems hard too
the holiday reese's pb cups are PERFECT. i love how soft the
chocolate is! the pb is soft - and there's more of it
in the holiday shapes.
i'm so glad reese's finally figured it out and released
i think the egg came first- but i don't remember.
thursday i bought two bags of 35 small hearts to
give w/ a valentine for the kids' classes.
we had them eaten by friday. we shared the joy
with kim and her kids and jeff and cherie too.
i had others on my list too -
until i saw they were all eaten. (how on earth...?)
on the way home last night- alex and bailey
were talking about the hearts. alex commented
that they were so delicious
he couldn't stop with just one. then he said,
'it's a shame they only make them once a year'
i was dying inside. too funny. before i had
kids, i wondered if they would loath chocolate like
their father does. i'd have no one to share holiday treats, the
joy of a movie with treats, or the occasional baked
goodies. i now know i am not alone. my kids
definitely inherited my strange passion for all things
wait till alex sees the pb eggs- it will make his month.
