    Re: General Food Talk

    I tried the Samoas and found them too gooey, supersweet, too. But, actually, I will eat ANY of those stupid cookies. I guess it's a good thing that I can't get at any of them now.

    I joined the girl scouts, but I quit after a month because I hate crafts! Didn't even make it to cookie season. Just as well, I guess.

    I ordered 18 Nutrageous candy bars from Amazon due to a craving and the unavailability in my area. They should get here in time for me to give most of them out as Easter goodies. Now I must look for black jelly beans!!! Maybe I'll trade the kids a candy bar for their black jelly beans? I used to go door-to-door at work collecting black jelly beans since most people don't seem to care for them. Don't think that would fly in my subdivision, though.

    AND I can't find Dove Truffle eggs, my very favorite easter candy.

    Several of the supermarkets around here have Jelly Belly bulk bins; each flavor has its own bin. It's pretty easy -- too easy, in fact -- to get only black jelly beans.

    Gotta watch out for bulk bins. People...not just kids....have a nasty tendency to stick their less-than clean hands in there. I wouldn't have thought about it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.

    At our grocery store, the one-color-only jelly bean dispenser is a device that you lift a hatch with your bag waiting under the shute. It would be hard to touch any beans still in the container as the sluice gate is pretty far up the shute.

    I think what Shay is referring to is the old fashioned black jelly beans that were licorice flavored. They're not anywhere near the "jelly belly" jelly beans that came into a lot of prominence when former Pres. Reagan expressed a penchant for them. The "jelly bellies" are often the only ones you can find nowadays in the bulk bins. And, if you're a jelly bean purist who's looking for black, licorice flavored jelly beans, you won't find them at all easily. I know as I've looked for them myself.

    Hey, Unk, Thanks.
    I just may have to order those and the Girl Scout cookies, too.

    You'd better believe that I went to the site to check out the goodies! No matter how much I may love them, I can't imagine what I'd do with 5 pounds of them! And the shipping costs almost as much as the 5 pound order!!!

    Thanks, anyway, Unk.
