you are an obsession, you're my obsession...

I will have you

Yes I will have you

I will find a way and I will have you

Even if that means I have to paw around in my son's trick or treat booty bag when he's not looking - Mommy's just getting the bread out, baby! - because I caught a passing glance of something red and taunting when I may or may not have been looking for a fun size Snickers bar. I'm just saying. So what? Like you'd not do the same thing? It's chewy caramel, milk chocolate and crispy crunch, my wild butterflies. Out of all the Halloween goodness (my goodness has turned to badness...my need to possess you has consumed my soul...) squandered away by they boys, this is (was!) the only 100 Grand bar brought into my home. The only one! What up, people?! Rectify this matter for next Halloween! Thank you in advance.

Animotion and 100 grand bars! I'm in heaven.

Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me and share that crispy goodness?

Oh man, I'm traveling this week, and can't get to the booty.

I'll have to purchase my 100 grand, but i'll tell you what- I'll buy one for you, too

I do not know what that chocolate bar is. :( That makes me sad.

I too only obtained but one 100 grand this year. I pilfered it from my boss's desk....

I've eaten all the good candy bars from my kids' loot. Luckily, they are so seldom given candy that they are happy to be left with the dregs, like the mini Tootsie Rolls and the Smarties and the small packages of Teddy Grahams.

I've got another year or two before they catch on and we start having all-out cagematch fights-to-the-death over them.

we didn't get any...not even one. My kids are too old to trick or treat anymore and I only bought candy I didn't think I was going to like for the kids that came to the door...boy do I miss those little 100 grands..

100 Grands are OK; I'm not much with the whole caramel thing, but Molly is, mos' def'. She's deep into Turtles, but those don't usually put in much of an appearance on Halloween. . .

My kids know, tho, to hide all the peanut butter cups from me, and if they ever get a Peanut Butter Twix, I'll smell it three houses away. . .

I'll also glom any dark chocolate they get, but they don't fight me for that so much. . .

..um...you know they SELL these, right?

Be happy you got at least one of these, though...two of the houses my kids went to gave out pencils and bottled water.


Bottled Water.

Really? I got my kid all dressed up and am walking around in the wind and cold so you can give my kid a friggin' pencil? I should stab you in the eye with it right now just to spite you.

But then we got some Reese's and I calmed down.

Alas, my kids no longer trick-or-treat... I'm forced to buy candy under the pretense that I will hand it out, knowing that no visitors will find my door. The fact it's behind a privacy fence and the lights were out have no bearing on the fact I *would* have given them candy if they had merely exerted themselves.

I have never had one of these before, being that I had no idea what was in them and why would I try something new when there's a perfectly good Snickers or Milky Way to be enjoyed?

Totally going to the hospital gift shop tomorrow and getting me one of these. I shall report ASAP.

I likes me some 100 grand but can not be within 75 meters of a Russell Stover coconut cream pumpkin or santa (depending on the season) without going crazy.

I typically buy every case I can find as soon as they get them in. Last year I was eating one santa a day until June! Mmmmm...coconut cream santa.

Nan - As long as you're (your) not creepy, as long as you don't wish to hang me like a skin in a closet, as long as no knuckles are involved, then I'll share my crispy goodness with you for hours. Hours, I say. You've got me going.


Sailor - Buy me two, yeah? The first one I'm bound to scarf down too fast to enjoy, thus the need for a second one to savor. Thank you.

1blueshi1 - Thanks for making me think of earworms!

Cat - Imagine heaven, combine that with the most satisfying sex you could have with a guy who worships your every move, throw in a piece of decadent chocolate cake, enhance all that with a soundtrack performed live by your favorite band and then you have what the 100 Grand is.

Savage - You should know that, in light of your pilfered treating, too, I don't feel all that guilty about stealing from babes.

FTN - I like to call Halloween "Dad's Holiday." My kids pretty much scour the neighborhoods for the benefit of my husband's candy bar cravings. They, too, don't get much in the way of candy through the year (though we're not hardcore about not giving in from time to time), so when they come home, they eat a few pieces and then honestly forget they have mountains of the stuff. Thus, The Husband enters a diabetic coma, thus allowing me to run havoc through the house.

I gotta say, though, that I don't think I could pass off the Teddy Grahams as a deliciuos Halloween treat when they get those more often through the year.

Stacie - This is why, i think, we planned out the kids nearly 5 years apart in age. We're just on the cusp of one not going out much longer, and yet the years are still there for the youngest. Yeah! Free candy!

Desmond - dark chocolate is divine. I am a fan. I've convinced my kids it is awful (that's not evil, right?) and they've willingly given it up to me. However, damn science, my oldest now knows from school that dark chocolate has health benefits and he's all "I want it. It's good for my heart, blah, blah, blah."

So I steal it when he's at school learning that kind of stuff.

moooooog35 - I had to count the 'o's there! Thanks for the visit and comment.

I find that stealing candy from children brings with it a greater satisfaction in flavor and joy that trumps spending anywhere from 57-69 cents for one of these.

And pencils and bottled water? Oh, no thank you. I'd have been all "wtf?" I'd use that pencil to scrawl a note suggesting how to improve their Halloween standing in the coming years, then signed off with a chocolate-tinged kiss from the Reece's. Seriously. What the hell kind of freak house is that?

Michael - I find it sometimes fun to have the porch light on and then turn it off as children approach.

Ok, not really. Instead, I give them pencils and bottled water while in a chocolate daze brought on by the candy I ate and am fighting my husband for.

Taja - Do not let the quality of the cheap Nestle chocolate discourage you. I admit, Nestle brand woulnd't be my first choice. If this was covered in Hershey chocolate instead, well, I'd hate to think of how I'd be. However, the caramel alone saves it. I look forward to your assessment!

*Sparkles* - Replace your Russell Stover's coconut cream Santa and pumpkin with a Reece's peanut butter Christmas tree and/or Santa and I know exactly what you're saying. Props to you for having the discipline to make them last until summer! I'm quite impressed!

those are ridiculous. my husband brought home a tiny one from work and i swallowed it in like 1.5 seconds. unfortunately, my kids didn't get any whilst trick or treating. dammit! damn it all to hell.

Like Taja, I have not had one either. I was kept in a plastic bubble growing up by my parents to protect me from dangerous sugar intake. What did I do first year of college in a blatant act of rebellion? I had a twinkie. Yes, I really was that wild and out of control.

OMG. I love me some 100 grand bars. I bet it's the only candy bar they have in Heaven...Ooh that and a cold 3 Musketeers bar. Yum!

you da mom! - I agree! Damn it to hell! This is why I'm putting out the mandate now that all other candies should be stricken from the Halloween shelves next fall and only 100 Grands should grace them.

Therese - During my first year of college, I, too, had a Twinkie. I also, sigh, dipped into the fire water and made the beasts with two backs. Good gurl gone bad, baby! Except I rocked the dean's list, too, because I didn't want to totally disappoint my parents...

kimmy - I bet God has a stash of frozen Snickers up there somewhere and I'm telling you now, I will do whatever it takes to get to one, even if that means something ugly or totally out of character. You got my back?
