“Holy shit, that’s a lot of caramel!”
The aforementioned sentence fully describes my interior monologue while playing with and eating my Milky Way Simply Caramel bar. It’s nothing but caramel encased in an oblong shell of chocolate. I write this after three bites and I swear my heart is beating more slowly.
My first foray into candy bar writing comes as somewhat of a shock to me. As I survey the aisles, it finally dawns on me: I haven’t done a single candy bar this whole time. From energy drinks, to Hostess Sno Balls, I have sampled so much snack food (and drink) … but no candy bar? This must come from years of conditioning I have gone through. You know, when your eye gets caught by the Twix bar, shining like an entry into Roald Dahl’s beloved chocolate factory, and you tell yourself “NO!” At least that’s how it works for me.
As far as this too-sweet treat is concerned, if you are immune to caramel overloads and are a huge sugar fan, this may just be the candy bar for you. Or, you may be someone who is suffering from dental issues (such as loss of all teeth); in this case, gum away, my friends.
I, however, couldn’t even finish half the Milky Way Simply Caramel bar. And I didn’t want to put anybody in my direct vicinity through the torture of trying to stomach the other half. I guess the old platitude “Don’t eat anything in the Snickers row that isn’t a Snickers,” rings true. Haven’t heard of that saying? You must not live on Mars.
