Wandering the grocery store aisles yesterday, I got suckered. I know it happened for a variety of reasons, but these are the primary ones: shopping without children, shopping without a list, and shopping while hungry....a dangerous combination. While picking out yogurt, I noticed the enticing display of chocolate syrup and was reminded of the boring vanilla ice cream sitting in our freezer. I moved away from the yogurt to examine the chocolate sweetness(if I had my kids with me there is no way this would have happened). And my eye was drawn to a fancy new bottle of Hershey's syrup. Syrup pumped with calcium and extra vitamins. So ofcourse I felt compelled to pick that one over the regular Hershey's. As I put it in my cart, I knew it was foolish yet I heard a little voice saying "well at least there is some nutrional benefit, right?". So tonight I will be eating my bowl of vanilla ice cream with the calcium enriched, vitamin filled Hershey's syrup. What's next? Beef jerkey with extra calcium? Gasoline with essential vitamins in the fumes? Halloween candy with sedatives (hey that might be a good idea!)?

I love the Halloween candy we could make a million dollars. I don't think you can have TOO MUCH calcium. Good treat

That is so funny. I was telling people about this at work today. Have you seen the gum with antioxidants?
