Son of Bun
Remember this nasty little guy? Remember how I said he was the most terrible candy experience ever? Well, I have a new story for you.
My husband thinks the Killer Bun Story is hilarious. So I think he has been looking for Buns locally to surprise me. Why he thinks I'd like to relive such an experience is beyond me, but I think he thought it would be funny to look at them and laugh over old Killer.
One night he came home from work with a Charlie Brown's Farms bag and seemed so pleased with himself.
One of our local farmers markets had started carrying BUNS. Well, vanilla and caramel ones anyway. I was almost disappointed that he couldn't find a Killer Bun. I am curious now to see if it was as bad as I remember.
The caramel one was old. It had been smashed, heated and then left to re-solidify. I don't know what possessed me, but I just had to try it. I should have thrown it out. The peanuts were stale and the caramel was brittle in some places and gummy in others. The chocolate had more in common with a candle than a piece of chocolate.
But as always... the Vanilla would do in a pinch.
I really should stop eating candy. Or maybe I should just send all future buns to my brother David and see if he'll eat them now.
