ok, so i bought this candy on saturday. My son and i were walking through the Bulk Barn and my eyes caught the Brach’s Jelly Nougat bin. I was so excited! i hadn’t had them for sometime and they used to be one of my favorites as a kid! I said to my son, “I have to have some of these.” yeah, i know, they’re all sugar and not good for someone my age but who cares once-in-awhile? I proceeded to put about 12 in the bag and went to pay for them. As i unwrapped the first one, my excitement died…… much to my disappointment, it wasn’t how i remembered. The jelly nougats are much smaller than i recall and it tastes way more surgary than i ever remember it did. 😦
Now what? i sit with these 12 candies (well, 11 now) and contemplate what to do with them. Should i eat them? Should i waste them and throw them out? Is it worth the calories? Should i throw them in my desk for when i need that 3:00 sugar fix? too many decisions for candy that was a total disappointment.
this started me thinking about other things from when i was a kid that are different than i probably remember them to be. Have you ever moved from a house, went back and it seemed so much smaller? How about a high school reunion? Somehow those friends that you just couldn’t live without have different interests now. Let’s think about the music from past days…. nah, let’s not! i still LOVE 80’s rock!
Happy remembering and i recommend staying away from the Jelly Nougats.
