Random Thoughts

1.  According to the packing on Pearson's Salted Nut Roll, it is a good source of protein. 


The vending machine was stocked full of them, and despite these health claims, the salty bars wait while Pop Tarts and Skittles are chosen.  The Salted Nut Roll is from a different time and cannot understand why everyone is laughing.

I was no different.  I chuckled and pointed as I purchased the Wheat Thins.

2.  In researching the Nut Roll, I also discovered the Nut Goodie
Poor guy.

I have to admit. I am a fan of the Nut Roll. I've yet to meet a PayDay bar that wasn't delicious AND nutritious.

And yes, I am from the stone age of junk food.

didn't know about those last couple of meanings for "authentic." Fascinating.

I have of late, though wherefore I know not, taken a liking to the Take Five bar. But PayDays are awesome.
