There was a big bowl of mini-Mars Halloween candy treats at our front desk today. All the Twix,M&M's, and Snickers bars were gone before lunchtime, but most of the Milky Ways and 3 Musketeers are still unclaimed at the end of the day.
Does anyone like 3 Musketeers and Milky Ways? They're like the unwanted stepchildren of the Mars empire. Twix bars have that cookie crunch, Snickers have peanuts, and Mars bars have almonds, but Milky Ways and 3 Muskys are just big blobs of nougat and caramel that stick to your teeth. They're what's left over after you've already eaten all the good stuff from your Mars fun size variety pack.
In other Halloween news, it looks like today's Family Circus violates this year's "no Sarah Palin costumes allowed" rule by having Dolly dressed up as you-know-who. Someone in our building today was dressed like Ashley Todd . Hey, last week called -- they want their Halloween costume back!
