Deb- I've never really gotten the Mars bar. Like the Tim Tam, it's too over the top for me, and I never buy them. I have a theory that they are chiefly a chocolate bar for the ladies.

Pete- Haven't tried a caramel one. Will have to have a crack.

Kim- There's an American lolly shop nearish my work.. I'll have to try and suss out a Baby Ruth. Note that I didn't say 'candy'.

Rodeo- very envious of your trip1 I hope you are having a great time with all those New Mexicans. Hope they are as nice as the old ones.

Cjed- That's a good thing to keep!

Gary- 7 months! Condolences.

Soph- i got rid of so much good childhood stuff. Whenever I see something similar I get these painful nostalgic pangs and yearn for that thing again.

George- Now, the Snickers I get. A lot better than a Mars, and somewhat under rated.

Simone- Sorry, no time for Lindt, no matter how many percent.

Beth- We are very rapidly gathering Barbie paraphenalia. they seem to be multiplying.

Al- wow, your number guess was so accurate. You are like that world cup octopus.

I like a Bounty. Under rated for sure. Sort of like the albino brother of the Cherry Ripe, I find.
