A Pause for the Taste Buds

Yes, I know that the economy is tanking. I know the nightmare it is to even think about McCain being the next president, and god help us if Palin ever sets foot in the oval office. A whole lot of the news just totally and completely sucks.

But here’s the good news. This is the time of year when you can get Brach’s candy corn and Halloween Oreo cookies. I can set aside all the ugliness in the world for just a moment to pop some candy corn pieces in my mouth or munch on a couple of Oreo cookies with the orange cream inside.

So here’s a bag of candy corn (no other brand but Brach’s will do) And here’s a package of Halloween Oreos. Help yourself. Just for a minute, relax and let your taste buds enjoy some fun. A tall cold glass of milk is available upon request. You didn’t think I would forget that, did ya?

While you are munching on sweets and guzzling milk, try this for fun. If Sarah Palin had named me, she would have named me Bretta Hockey Palin. Check it out and see what she would have named you.

Ah... Halloween Oreos.

You have gotten my day off to a brilliant start. Which you do no matter what.

I did that name generator the other day, I came out as something I can't remember.

Maybe I just don't want to!!

I wish I could enjoy the candy corn and Oreos but they don't fit into my no High Fructose Corn syrup rule. Thanks for the thought anyway. Maybe we should have all stocked up when they were all made with real food.
Meanwhile, I am just going to practice my "You want fries with that?" and "Paper or plastic?" patter just so I am prepared for retirement.

I'm Khaki Salmon Palin. I think that means she'd fish me right out of pristine waters and smash me on a rock. Thanks, mom.

Just note that "Froth Moonshine" loved your post this morning. I long wondered if there was anyone else in the world that loved Oreo Halloween cookies and Brach's candy corn besides me. A little secret, I love the Brach's pumpkins too!
Thanks for the laugh this morning. I will probably run out today to make my selection of Fall foods! Maybe I'll pick up an apple or two just to stay healthy!

Is it me, or are ALL versions of Oreos flush with far too much of that cream stuff? The cookie is the best part, I don't care what any of you jokers say.

I'm with Randal--the cream stuff is gross. The cookies are the best part.

Sounds yummy! Here is another Halloween treat: equal amounts of candy corn and salted peanuts. Sweet and salty, hard to beat.

I'm with randall here. The cream in the middle is just glue to hold the good parts together. I can even remember scraping it off and tossing it.

The name generator did something odd. A pop up popped up and it said,"You have been located MRMacrum, please stand by, the black SUVs will be by shortly. We have questions". And everyone just thought I was paranoid for shits and giggles. Thanks.

Mangle Blue Palin.

And while that does sound like a fine idea, I won't agree publicly to do so.

Halloween Oreos taste just like regular Double Stuf Oreos. Which I find disconcerting when I eat them because I expect them to taste orange. But that's OK, I can just eat them with my eyes closed!
