I just got back from my scheduled six month cleaning and check-up with the dentist. Things looked fine. But I didn’t get a sucker. I guess they don’t do that anymore. Pity!
So as a reward to myself I stopped at the GREAT every thing cost a dollar place and bought a box of the new Strawberry flavored Whoppers. It’s been a long time since I had some, but I fondly remember those chocolate covered malted balls, the original Whoppers. I loved ‘em.
Remember they came in a box that looked like a short milk carton.
The new Strawberry Whoppers remind me of an old fashion McDonald’s milk shake.
They were pretty good. But I made a slight mistake. After I picked them up from the store I stopped at the car shop to check on Kristie’s Fiero. Because it is becoming a vintage car we are finding some parts are getting hard to find. This time however we finally located what we need and it is now headed this way.
As Lon the mechanic and I were talking about the new Challengers from Dodge, time was passing. Trouble is the candy box was sitting on the seat and it was already 88 outside.
Climbing back in the car I thought, "Yikes, Malt ball soup".
When I got home I stuck them in the fridge for a few minutes. I came after changing clothes and putting things away, reached in and opened the box and found I now had a large solid 4 oz mass of pink delight.
Maybe it would be best to just gnaw off a chunk. Yum. They are pretty good.
