Oh. There's my problem.

Yesterday I cleaned out the fruit bowl sitting on my island. I realized I had a handful of tangerines that had been living in this bowl for... weeks. Definitely more than one, probably (hopefully) less than five.
God! Sorry for my photo taking skills. My Asian relatives
are so ashamed of me.
In tossing out the healthy crap, I discovered a forgotten treasure:
Oh yeah, that's the good stuff.
Yes, Jason and I had added candy bars to our fruit bowl. Because that's exactly where these things belong. Oh, and while I can't tell you when I bought the tangerines, I can tell you when we procured the candy bars. May 5th. I remember because we had just left the Susan G. Komen 5K race (yes, I'm aware of the hilariousness of what I just said) and made a pit stop at a store to get some Gatorade. At the register, the candy section screamed out to us, "hey, you. Looking for a good time? I'm buy one, get one free. That's right. You know you want me." Jason and I proceeded to buy FOUR bars (2 of each, 2 for each of us). We both immediately ate one bar apiece.... And then, obviously, put our remaining stash into the fruit bowl. I assume we were thinking that by being in close proximity to the tangerines, the candy bars would take on some healthy properties. 

We still haven't eaten these bars. Why? Because we had to eat the other 4 candy bars that we bought the other night. We went to a different store that had the same buy one, get one free sale. Sigh. At least I've figured out why I'm a chunky sushi roll. It's because all stores are against me with their damn candy sales.

  2. UPDATE - the PB Snickers is no longer around, nor is the Mr Goodbar.

    That is all.

    1. Yes, I noticed the Mr. Goodbar was already gone. And RIP to the PB Snickers. Did you notice that BOTH of my Twix PBs are gone? Yeah, those bitches didn't stand a chance.

  3. I also keep candy in my fruit bowl,... as well as my bread and cracker basket... the fridge, the freezer, and the pantry.... Not that i eat them everyday but I refuse to have a chocolate craving hit me at 3 in the morning and me not have the means to handle it :-)

    1. I bow down to what I am dubbing your "Easter Egg Hunting Ways." I'm sure Chad appreciates not having to handle you sans chocolate too. :)

  4. I just found Halloween candy as I unpacked some of my boxes yesterday.

    Not only did I not get any trick or treaters at my last place, but I also didn't have enough of a sweet tooth to eat the candy after 6 months.

    1. My favorite part about this comment is that you didn't find the candy when you were packing, but when you were unpacking. I shouldn't ask this (because it may pain my heart to find out some good candy was wasted), but what type was it?

    2. Well my packing consisted of me just grabbing handfuls of stuff and throwing them into boxes... sometimes even just using my forearm to sweep things into bags.

      Paydays.
