Extra Postage Required

ShortMama at Family of Shorts and She's Just Another Manic Mommy put me in a letter writing mood...

Dear Hershey's,

You've been a part of my life for a long time and I've got the dental claims and extra pounds to prove it. Recently, I stumbled onto your Extra Creamy Milk Chocoate with Toffee & Almonds Nuggets. It's as though someone crawled into that section of my brain that thinks of chocolate eight days a week and knew that I would LOVE that combination.

Now, I know it's healthy to eat slowly so I eat them in two bites rather than all at once. It makes such a difference. And it's great that I don't have to go to a special boutique chocolate shop to purchase them. They're right there at the grocery store or drug store.

However, my thighs recently chatted with me. It was easy to hear them now that they rub together. They told me to lay off the Nuggets. My right thigh suggested I sue your company for making such a terrific snack-size, gotta-have-it, incredibly addictive bit of heaven since it seems to have overpowered any willpower I once had. My left thigh quickly stepped in (heh) to point out if I were to win the lawsuit I would no doubt negotiate the payment in chocolate rather than dollars and we (me, myself and my thighs) would be no better off.

The economy is still fighting its way back and while I hope your stocks don't suffer, I'm going to have to listen to my thighs and cut back on the Nuggets for awhile before one of my chins decides to speak up as well.

Hugs & Kisses (of course!),

A growing fan

PS. I still love you, you little know I'll be back.


  1. Hilarious!! Im glad me and my thighs havent tried these yet because they sound delish!

  2. ahahahaa! they sound so good!
    I have an award for ya! :)

  3. that is great! so true, so true!

  4. ah... I have a love affair with Hersey's too!

  5. My own personal nemesis are the Dove milk chocolates with caramel. They come in a bag. And I KNOW to not purchase a bag with the intention of only eating a few every day or so... But it never fails: I ALWAYS eat the entire bag in one day. It's pathetic.

  6. I too love chocolate and I have to just laugh at the amount of chocolate they say is included in one serving. Who can stop at one serving?? It's simply not possible.

  7. HAHAHAHAHA! That was fantastic! And, oh my, those sound like they are right up my alley. The only thing that would make them better for me is if it was white chocolate. But almonds?? Toffee?? Sign me up!

  8. Snort!

    Now I have to find the will power to NOT to go to the store and look for these little devils...

  9. So funny and very clever! (My thighs hate me, btw.But the feeling is mutual.)

  10. Hmm, once I get the 'beach' lbs off I'll have to try them as I am out of my current fave, the dark chocolate Dove little squares. Love the letter!

  11. My flabby abs are always trying to lay off the goodies; but I always ignore it. them.
