Melting Candy

This video of melting M&Ms is very cool, if a bit wasteful of yummy chocolate candy.

Fudge Brownie M&Ms

 Hubby found this when he was at the supermarket and knew I'd want to try them. Not quite as chocolicious as an actual fudge brownie, but rather tasty. Good for when you're craving fudge and have none around.

Some new, to me, chocolate to review. Until recently, I did not know there were chocolate flavored Cheerios. As soon as I found this out, I had to try them.

At first bite, they didn't seem all that chocolatey, but by the time I ate a bowl of them, I really liked them. Unlike Cocoa Krispies, which always get caught in my teeth, these were nice and crunchy and not overly sweet. They'd make a nice snack, too.

Movie Snack

. My favorite movie snack is Sno-Caps, though Malt Balls were good, too. During COVID19, hubby and I are doing a weekly movie night, complete with Sno-Caps. I never really looked at the box until now. For some reason, they think the standard Sno-Caps box contains three servings. Back in the days of actually going to a movie theater, I'd eat a whole box of Sno-Caps before the previews ended.

End of a Horrible Year

 Yeah, I know. It's been months and months since my last post. I've spent most of the year obsessively reading news about COVID19 and the shameful political situation in the US. I've also watched a lot of TV and movies via streaming services, but didn't keep track, so no movies seen list this year. 

It used to be so easy to blog, via "Blog This" and other sharing links. Now it's easier to share on Facebook, but my FB account is for friends only. I feel bad about ignoring this, my first, blog.

So, here's an article about some ancient chocolate.
