Where Did I Go Wrong?

By Heather

Look at this. Just look. It’s a travesty, no?



Your eyes do not deceive. That is a chocolate Easter bunny.

Intact.

At the end of July.

It belongs to son #2. But not for long. When my daughter discovered he had yet to eat it, she laid claims. Smart girl.

The thing is, son #2 doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth, with two exceptions: ice cream and Sour Patch Kids. And I can understand that—I have more of a salty tooth than a sweet tooth, too. But to not eat a chocolate bunny? I went wrong somewhere…just not quite sure where yet (must figure this out before next Easter).

Do you have a salty tooth or a sweet tooth? What’s your favorite treat? Me? I can eat chips and salsa all day long. Yum.

Oh, I love popcorn and m&m's.

Aimee said...

You know my daughter has a sweet tooth. She loves candy, cake, ice cream ... she loves it all. But she routinely leaves Easter baskets and Halloween bags untouched.

I can't figure it out.

Dru said...

I'm a little bit of both but leans towards salty.

I like both myself. I can eat beef nachos all day, but I also love ice cream, reese's cups and red velvet cake is my weakness.

Heather Webber said...

Tonya, I love popcorn, too. And peanut m&ms--never the originals.

Aimee, so glad there are other kids who don't touch Halloween and Easter candy! I do wonder why. Mine just shrug when I ask.

Dru, sounds familiar!

Heather Webber said...

Oh my gosh, Babs. Nachos. Mmmmmmmmm.

Sadly,I think I have both, but I am more of a sweets girl for sure - brownies, and cookies, and ice cream, and hersey bars, and peanust butter cups, and rolos, and...well, you get the picture :)

To not eat a chocolate bunny is blasphemous - and dove chocolate at that!
Actually, I am a huge fan of the salty/sweet combo (like chocolate oovered pretzels! - Yum!)

BOTH! Give me popcorn or plain potato chips, give me M&M's or sweet pastries...
Years back, for Christmas my kids would buy me a tub of poato chips snd a 1 lb. bag of M&M's.
Very thoughtful, and I did not share.

holdenj said...

I like both, of course! I did try the new Pretzel M&M's--they have the nice sweet/salty, but the candy shell part, not so sure.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Not to be nit-picky, but does it take a sweet tooth to eat Sour Patch Kids?

I like sweet and salty together, like salty trail mix with M&M's. During this STUPID diet I've been on, I've eaten a ton of Slim Fast Sweet & Salty Chocolate Almond meal bars. Note I said I've eaten them, I didn't say I like them.

Deborah Sharp said...

Salty, definitely. BBQ potato chips are my particular poison. But I wouldn't turn down that Easter bunny, either .... just not at the same time.

I am a chocololic! My favorite is Red Velvet Cake but it doesn't have to be red. :) I ran out of Red and made it black. LOL

But I love potato chips with slices of cheese on it. Salty! lol

No contest, Heather. Sweet, sweet. Long live King Chocolate.

Ellery Adams said...

I like movie theater popcorn with Raisinets!

Heather Webber said...

I'm sitting here in a hotel room in Orlando and am plotting a raid on the vending machine thanks to all of you. I seriously have a case of the munchies. Hope I brought enough cash!

Lisa D said...

Ahhhh...chocolate bunny ears!

I'm more of a sweet tooth but I can pig out on some chili cheese nachos with the best of them.

Shel said...

I'm salty. I too can eat chips and assorted dips/salsa all day long.

Valerie Consoer said...

I'm a little of both. Given the choice between salt & vinegar chips and an M&M Dairy Queen blizzard, I'd rather chew off my right arm than make that decision. I probably have more of a sweet tooth actually. "A day without ice cream is a waste," is what my mom usually says. And I tend to agree with her. Ice cream cake from DQ is the best!!!! Man, it's a good thing we still have part of a birthday ice cream cake in the freezer, cuz I'm seriously craving it now. Yuuuummm!!!

Vickie said...

Oh....my favorite is Hot Tamales and popcorn. I can't remember how I fell onto that mix, but so glad I did. Spicy sweet and salty goodness....

Misa said...

LOL! My daughter's easter basket is still in her room, chocolate easter bunny and all.

See, I knew we were supposed to be friends.

Catmommie said...

I second the salsa and chips! But I won't refuse Fritos or chocolate.

Kuzlin said...

Peanut M&M's!

Linda said...

Definitely a sweet tooth. I never buy anything salty....though if I am at a party and there are chips out, I will eat some. Chocolate is my downfall. That Dove Easter Bunny would have been a goner on Easter day if it had been in my house.

Katie said...

did someone say nachos?

I'm a sucker for sour sweets and just about any chocolate depending on my mood.

Valerie Consoer said...

Oh gosh, Vicki. I totally forgot about Hot Tamales. They are the best candy ever! There were nights as a teenager that I could eat a whole bag in one sitting. It could be why I'm so tubby now. Hmmmm...

Vickie said...

Valerie: *grin* I concur, they are the best candy ever. I have weird favorites, Hot Tamales and Zero candy bars.
