In Canada they have these really tasty candy bars names Sweet Marie's. They were always my favourite candy bars when I was a child. Not only were they stogged full of caramel, peanut butter, crispy cereal and salted peanuts . . . not to mention covered in chocolate . . . but they actually named the bars after ME! (Don't ever tell me any different!)
All in all a very irresistable combination don't you think?
I don't know if they have anything similar over here, but I suspect they do . . . and I suspect that it is probably the Picnic or the Lion Bars. Or a cross between the two.
It's funny how things go . . . how when you can't get something anymore, you kind of crave it. Things like Kraft Macaroni and Cheese . . . or Velveeta . . . All Dressed Potato Chips . . . Coffee Crisp Candy Bars . . . Lucky Charms Cereal . . . Captain Crunch . . . Sweet Marie's . . .
And the longer you have to live without them . . . the more you want them. The more you crave them. The more you think about, dream about, desire . . . them . . .
I find myself making lists every time I fly home of things I want to pick up to bring back with me when I go home. Things like Lipton's Chicken Noodle Soup Mix . . . Cheese Whiz . . . and all of the above . . .
I think I can cross Sweet Marie Candy Bars off my list now . . . because these tasty bars are almost identical . . .
They are chock full of crunchy-ness, and chewy-ness, and peanuty-ness, and scrummy-ness . . . with just the right amount of chocolaty-ness to make them incredibly moreish, can't put me down . . . addictive-ness . . .
The fact that they are named after me is . . . just . . . well . . . the icing on a very VERY tasty cake! In fact the only bad thing I have to say about these is . . . it's impossible to eat just one. *naughty girl am I*

NOTE: for fun today I cut mine with a sharp straight sided metal Heart shaped cookie cutter. Of course you will not get as many pieces if you do this, but the scraps are great to snack on. *grin* AND, the slices look so cute and very Valentiney!
