Foraging for ...

I was beginning to think I knew the pangs of a deprived crack addict. Last evening, when Big Ed called home to say that Publix-on-Bird did not have any sugar-free white cupcakes and did we want chocolate, I said no. J said yes for himself, and so I went without.

I watched them eat their daggone chocolate cupcakes. Big Ed did offer me a piece of sugar-free candy out of pity. But I bided my time. Okay, I ate the candy but I still bided.

Today, on the way home from church, I stopped at the big Publix across from the university. I garnered four boxes of s/f white cupcakes. Now, I shared one box, but the other three are mine, all mine!

If I were a dog, I would bury them ...

That is how I feel about sugar free Godivia as a consumer chocolatier. Mine, mine, mine. You can purchase a floor safe and keep the combination to yourself.

Wow... Years ago I discovered sugar free caramels at a Trader Joe's. I was trying to diet and we snuck them into the theater. We went to see Muriel's Wedding, one of my all time fav movies (although I recently saw it again and was struck by how dark parts of the movie really were... and deeply sad). Gosh, that had to be in the early 90's. Anyway, I remember it so vividly because I porked out on those caramels. I thought they were the best things ever! Half way through the movie I started having the WORST stomach cramps ever! I'll spare you the details. Needless to say, I don't do sugar free candy, at all, ever.

That is such a touching story, Coffee Bean. The Whitman's sugar free chocolate covered almonds are not something you want to eat by the bagful, either. 'Sperience speaking.

Uh, Zeta, I'll trade you some Godiva for the s/f white cupcake Sensables ...

Sure, no problem. I'll visit Godiva with a goal of purchasing the sugar free candy to eat in moderation. Parking is great if you arrive early in the morning just before the mall opens. Candy, shoes, candy. Ops candy.
