QOTD (Digest) #75 - Snacks

We all love candy so this one should be interesting

Question of the day....this one came to me yesterday as I was in Wal-Mart picking up medicine......


(Sidenote: Random rant time.....I'm there to pick up meds - being treated for a possible appendicitis....when I spent all day trying to remember where I heard the term "burst appendix"....random things that cross a wrestling junkie's mind. Oh yeah....it was Dino Bravo, which was his reason given for missing the Crockett cup in 1986 (I think)....my guess is that was probably kayfabed.....ok where was I?....)

....so the QOTD is a Hypothetical one:

You're in Wal-Mart in line, and you want to get something off that ridiculous smorgasboard of candy items they have right before you check out. What candy are you purchasing? For argument's sake, we'll make this 2 purchases....one from each category - Chocolate and Non-Chocolate?

I'll be back this weekend once the drugs wear off.

  2. Well both of these would apply to me before my teeth got into the shape they are in now
    Chocolate - Skor Bar
    Non-Choc - Skittles (big fuckin bag of em)


    Coincidentally I am eating a lunch of hot items bought at Wal Mart not 15 minutes ago, their mozzarella sticks are not bad.

  4. Peppered jerky and spearmint gum.

  5. First, don't shop at Walmart. Hate that fucking place.

    Second, in terms of candy, Hersheys milk chocolate king size and Reese peanut butter cups.

    Third, non chocolate? Fuck off.

    Finally, and most importantly, never - and Hoss means NEVER - forget the ice cream.

  6. A Skor bar and Lifesavers. Lifesavers are an underrated candy.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Unless Russell Stover milk chocolate is available. Then fuck Hershey.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I was a Timeout man. Only recently have we got any of the Wispa/Aero type bars. Hershey's sells a version of it that's alright.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Russell Stover is alright, but I prefer the good ol' Lindt for classy chocolates. The chilli one is good.

  10. For chocolate, there's a few things: Almond Joy, Reese's (either the OG or Pieces), M&M Peanut (or the rare Almond), Kit Kat, and Twix.

    Non-chocolate candy? Either Skittles or Twizzlers.

    I'm more of a chip person though. Cape Cod chips own.

  11. True Candy Story: I was a pretty dull kid. There was only one time that I ever even came close to being in trouble with the police.

    One day in my junior year of high school I devolved a strong urge for bomb-pops. They’re popsicles that look like this:

    http://icecreammanplace.com/images/products/product-img5-zoom.jpg

    I hadn’t had one since I was a little kid and got them from the ice cream man, but when I get a craving for a specific food it will bother me a lot until I get it.

    So me and another guy went on a quest to find them. They were harder to find than I would’ve though. The only store in town we could find that had them only sold them in packs of twenty four. I didn’t want that many, but I had to buy a whole box if I wanted any at all.

    So we ended up spending a Saturday afternoon driving around eating popsicles. Between the two of us we managed to eat five or six of them.

    It was a pretty warm day and it soon became obvious that if we didn’t act soon we’d have a sticky and wasteful mess on our hands.

    So we pulled into a gas station parking lot and asked the people walking in or out if they wanted a free bomb-pop. A few people took one, but most didn’t. So we gave up and just wrote the whole thing off as a lesson about the dangers or buying popsicles in bulk.

    We left, and I didn’t think much about it until school the next Monday. I mentioned the adventure to another guy in my homeroom class. He told me that he had heard about someone doing that on his police scanner radio.

    Somebody had called the police because someone was trying to give away popsicles. We must have left just before the cops got there.

    I still think about that a lot for a few reasons.

    One- why would anyone feel so threatened by free popsicles that they thought that it was necessary to send the cops in to stop me from giving them away? It’s not like we were trying to lure little kids into the car with promises of popsicles. We just asked everyone and if they wanted one we would toss them one. We weren’t even selling them.

    Two - If the cops would have got there, what would they have charged me with? Possession of frozen confections with the intent to distribute? That would be a bad thing to go to prison for. If you go into the penitentiary on a popsicle rap you’ll be someone’s bitch before the ink on your fingerprints dries.

    Three - what kind of seventeen year old actually spends his Saturdays listening to a police scanner?

    Chocolate: Either a Crunch or Twix, love those bad boys. Non-chocolate? Boo, chocolate or GTFO. I'm like that fish guy from Spongebob: "Chocolate? Did you say chocolate?! CHOCOLATE?! CHOCOLAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE!!!!! CHOCOLAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE!!!!!"

    ReplyDelete
  14. Chocolate: King Size Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

    Non-chocolate: Tic tacs. Original mint flavor, none of that multi-colored fruity shit.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Reese's is the answer.


    Non chocolate, I usually would go Skittles.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love the super sized will wonka bags of nerds, spree, laffy taffy etc

    For chocolate its definitely Crunchies

    ReplyDelete
  17. They are good but a cadbury crunchie beats it

    ReplyDelete
  18. As a society, we are conditioned to believe no one gives away free food unless it's spoiled or laced with an illegal substance. Remember that in today's world, you're guilty until proven innocent.

  19. I left some cherry laffy taffy on my VCR once (it was several years ago) the vcr got warm and melted the taffy so it leaked down into the VCR. So every time I watched a movie the room would smell like cherries. It was pretty nice

  23. I don't eat candy, and never will.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Fact: chocolate in the UK is made with Oompa-Loompa slave labor and the tears of children.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Twix for chocolate
    Non Chocolate is Skittles I guess.

    ReplyDelete

    One of the reasons I go to Comic Con is because they usually have a booth just for Nerds candy. They come in cereal boxes.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Real Answer: None. I'd make thebrazilliankid go get it for me.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I like most chocolate, I'm easy that way. Let's say Twix for the mass market stuff, or Lindt with the toffee bits, or Rittersport biscuit for the higher end stuff, but I'm generally easy to please. I also really like chocolate covered raisins.
    Non-chocolate I can eat pretty much anything from the cherry blaster/fuzzy peach family.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My actual favourite non-chocolate is black liquorice. Not the Twizzlers stuff, but the stuff that is usually found in pipe or cigar shapes. I have literally eatne myself sick on that stuff more than once.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Adam "Colorado" CurrySeptember 12, 2014 at 4:42 PM

    So are Skor bars.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Reese's cups unless it's Easter time, then it's Cadbury Cream Eggs.

    Non chocolate - Nerds
