I Dream of the Milky Way

A living box of candy wrapped up so very fine
Do it to me chewy chew me out of my mind

milky way without caramel

I thought I’d dreamed it.

I saw it. I bought it. I ate it. I loved it. And I dreamed about it.

But then, was it all a dream, after all?

NO!

Because my favorite candy blog, CandyBlog, wrote THIS.

Yes, it’s real. A Milky Way bar with ONLY the caramel part. Brilliance! No more of that annoying fluffy noughat. It’s JUST THE CARAMEL! (I don’t think you quite understand the significance of this . . . but then, neither do I.)

Oh, I know. You could go out and buy a Caramello, and believe me, I WILL, but this is news. Big news.

Weirdly, tho, the only place I’ve seen it is at PetSmart. Whaaat? Why PetSmart? Are pet owners known for their caramel love? I don’t know. But I do know that I can’t find this caramel-only Milky Way anywhere else. Of course, I could go back to PetSmart, but is it weird to go into a pet store and buy just a candy bar? Or, to more more precise, 50 candy bars?

Ah, Milky Way With Only Caramel. How you haunt me, with your awkward name and noughat-less filling. Wow, “noughat” is one weird-looking word, isn’t it. Am I spelling that right?

noughat

Apparently not.

Anyway, as I was saying, OH, Milky Way. How little I really know about you. Let’s learn more, shall we? First, we shall check out the all-knowing Wikipedia for some Milky Way facts.

The Milky Way, or simply the Galaxy, is the galaxy in which the Solar System is located. It is a barred spiral galaxy that is part of . . .

Well, THAT doesn’t sound very delicious.

OK, here we have a more reliable source on the Milky Way CANDY BAR, Wikipedia!

Oh, my God. I am home.

People are actually writing ODES to the Milky Way on this site.

Oh, caramel. You are my sweet piece of heaven. Mmm. [punctuation added by JD]

So fluffy. So creamy. So chocolatey. So Milky Way.

Oh, Milky Way, how you satiate my intense longing for something sweet.

Milky Your Way to a delicious Milky Way bar, dark or light, frozen or not.

That last one was kind of lame, yes? I think I can come up with something better.

Milky Way, your chocolate robe
Covers the most modest of fillings.
Sweet caramel — nothing else!
This shy maiden lies silent, waiting to be discovered.
Milky Way, fling open your chocolate robe!
And let the mouth chomp away on your hidden secret.

AND IN THIS CHOMPING, let there be . . .

OK, that first stanza is probably enough. Oh, but what a stanza it is.

Dang! The Milky Way site only let me submit the first two lines. Stupid.

Anyway, I hope you’ll all create your own ode to the Milky Way and submit it, both here and on the Milky Way site.

And head out to your local PetSmart and try the new Milky Way With Only Caramel!

    If Milky Way had a vagina I would totally do it.

    You know, that might not even be required.

    Might want to check to make sure your wrapper hasn’t been tampered with, fyi.

    I want to try one, but don’t have a PetSmart nearby. Why do I think it will end up like my endless Take 5 search. Unable to find it anywhere :(. At least you enjoyed it so I don’t have to.

  7. 7 Surfie

    I’ve never seen one of these! Now if they only made it with dark chocolate, I could die happy. I bought some Rolo’s the other day, and they’re good, but they could be so much MORE if only they were made with dark chocolate. *sigh*

  8. 8 Stephanie B

    I’m entirely unqualified to respond here. I also prefer dark chocolate and, since I’ve never been fond of nougat, I don’t and never have eaten Milky Ways by choice.

    True, this sounds like an improvement, but, as I’ve managed my life without MW so far, I’m not sure this will change things radically.

    Also, I don’t want to go to PetSmart.

    In fact, I think I’m a little scared that changes will alter my version of reality such that I find myself needing a candy bar that I have gone through my life never needing before.

    I’m not ready to have my life altered that way.

    Ok, first I have to say…

    I laughed my ass off when I read Moooogo35′s comment.

    ..If Milky Way had a vagina I would totally do it.

    Bwhahahahahahaha….that was HYSTERICAL!

    And second…

    HOLY SHIT…this Milky Way sound likes my kind of orgasm. Anything carmel makes me swoon. And if you add dark chocolate to it, I would definitely be singing, “Oooo…love to love ya, baby!”

    Thanks for letting us know about this, JD. I will definitely look for it!

    This sounds freakishly similar to the Mars Caramel. Back to Wiki:

    Canada

    The Mars bar is a sweeter version of the American Milky Way. Since the summer of 2006, all Mars bars produced in Canada are peanut-free. Mars is one of the few chocolate bars in North America for which no size of the product has any trace of peanuts. In February 2008, Mars Canada introduced a new variety of Mars bar called “Mars Caramel” to compete with the Cadbury Caramilk and Nestle Aero Caramel bars.

    Yum. I wonder if the store downstairs here at the hospital has them… ‘scuse me whilst I find out.

    Oh you are stuck ?
    In Milky Way’s caramel muck ?

    Oh there one I love more you see,
    Can there be anything bigger than Galaxy ?

    Astronomically they are the same I think
    Perhaps you can compare it to Dove
    But with Galaxy Caramel, Galaxy Ripple and Galaxy Milk chocolate drink
    Can there be anything more to Love ?

    Why does PetSmart have this? This is like a doggy death prescription. Chewy goodness wrapped in delicious, deadly chocolate.

    moooooo35: If Milky Way had a vagina, I would totally do it. How, I don’t know. But I’d figure out a way.

    Jenn of Many Cabbages: Oooh, nice! I like how you incorporated another candy in your ode. AND the reference to the galaxy. Very, very nice.

    Spot: How’s that? HOW’S THAT? That puts my ode to shame, is how that is! Excellent, my dear Spot. I hope you submitted it to the Milky Way site. It is truly divine.

    Tara: Yay! Let me know if you found it and tried it. I wish I’d gotten two or five or twenty on that fateful day. Hmmm. I may have to make a trip soon.

    Mone: NO! Not the candy store! PetSmart! PETSMAAAAART!

    Anne: That’s funny. I remember reading about Take 5 and deciding to try it — only to discover it was NOWHERE TO BE FOUND. I hate it when that happens. Why do they torture us this way?

    Surfie: Ah, you’re one of those dark chocolate people. Me, I don’t care for it. I’m a milky girl all the way. They do make a dark Milky Way, tho, don’t they? But as of yet, not one with only caramel. Maybe someday.

    Stephanie B: How strange to never have eaten a Milky Way. I thought that was a requirement of childhood. I don’t blame you for not wanting to go to a PetSmart. They always smell like dog food and wet fur.

    Ron: moooooo35 is definitely one of a kind when it comes to comments. AND his blog. This Milky Way . . . well, “orgasm” is the perfect word. I just knew you were a “caramel” person. Our friendship continues to grow.

    Maureen: Well? Does it? Did you get one? I do love Wikipedia. Now I feel like doing some thorough candy bar research.

    Jaffer: AWESOME! Jaffer, you are quite the poet when it comes to chocolate, at least. This Galaxy bar has me quite intrigued. I think it’s one of the few candy bars I didn’t try while in Canada. I do have to subtract at least one point, however, for using “muck” to describe my adored Milky Way. Otherwise: BRAVO!

    dcr: I really don’t know. It’s weird. But at the checkout aisle, there’s a display of candy bars, just like at the grocery store. And among them: MILKY WAY WITH ONLY CARAMEL! Maybe there should be a warning, not to feed it to your dog?

    i totally agree with surfie, i would really like a milky way caramel bar in dark chocolate. of course, i could bring one home and dip it in dark chocolate…hmmmm

    Hi JD, the Galaxy bar is not available in N. America. You’ll have to ask friends in the UK or the Middle East.

    Some say that it is sold as ‘Dove’ but, ‘Dove’ tastes less sweet.

    For some reason (or poor spelling sense) I would never have thought to put an “h” in nougat. Funny how some word spellings just make sense and other don’t. For you – it made sense for me – I don’t think I’ve ever typed the word before. Fun – thanks for making think about my spelling.

    P.S. I must make a confession and say that chocolate bars are not my thing. Actually ‘chocolate’ is not my thing. I didn’t mind the occasional nibble, but then I married a chocoholic and its ALWAYS around the house, so I’m kinda turned off from it. That said – I have found memories of getting a “Cherry Blossom” with my mom when I was a kid.

    But I don’t like going to the Petsmart. You have to cross the River of Pee to just step in the door and then all those weird dog people let their dog come up to you, like you like them, and let them sniff you–which drives me NUTS! I DO NOT like your dog, please don’t bring him over to me after he’s just peed like a racehorse in aisle 3! That whole “bring your dog to Petsmart to whiz” concept just makes me wig out.

    Oh, Milky Way, my melted midnight rendezvous in the dark. I love you, but you are nothing without chocolate. Chocolate is the ambrosia that fills my dreams, the ache in my heart that never goes away. You can do anything with chocolate. You can serve it cold or serve it hot. You can dip it, boil it, braise it, sauté it.

    There’s chocolate kebabs, chocolate basted bacon bits, chocolate mint jubilee, steamed chocolate tetrazzini, chocolate pineapple tarts, chocolate soup, chocolate whipped banana ice cream, chocolate brandy slurpee supreme, chocolate crab cakes, chocolate cheese cake, chocolate vanilla cake tower cascading with cream, chocolate smörgåsbord, chocolate pie, chocolate drizzled pancakes, chocolate fudge, and my favorite, chocolate jumbo shrimp.

    JD, I really want to play along, but I hate the Milky Way. Yuck. I don’t even like the nougat (yes, a very strange looking word, indeed).

    Now Snickers’ nougat is a different story. If only they would make a Snickers minus the nuts and caramel that would be heaven on earth for me.

    *I* take my dogs to the PetSmart and when I find that they have occasional bladder leaks, a la that commercial with the bouncing balloons full of water that makes me run to the toilet, I do clean it up with papers towels and the handy-dandy cleaning solution. In fact, one of my dogs was adopted at a PetSmart rescue event. (I have no self-control when it comes to fuzzy, cuddly things that occasionally urinate in the PetSmart, hence my choice of marriage partner.)

    Uh…point. Go out and adopt a poor, defenseless Milky Way with Only Caramel (MWWOC?) You’ll be so glad you did for the seconds of unconditional love that eating a Milky Way with Only Caramel can bring.

    Also, donations for purchases can be sent to P.O.Box 530, Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.

    Puglette: Oh, you naughty Puglette! I wonder what the Milky Way creators would think of THAT?! (I would like to dip Ollie in chocolate and . . . SQUEEZE HIM AND KISS HIM!!!)

    Jaffer: OK, that explains why I didn’t see it in Toronto. I bet I can get it online tho. As for being “more sweet” than Dove? I am ALL about “more sweet.”

    LJ: I’m guessing that adding the “h” makes sense for no one, but me. Although it is listed as a variant spelling in my dictionary, so I feel a little better.

    And now, onto this confession. Are you an alien? There’s another fairly regular poster on this blog who doesn’t like chocolate and has confessed to being an alien. If so, speak up. If not . . . well, I just can’t think of any other explanation!

    Bingo: John Lennon would be proud! And so am I! Now I’ll have that delicious tune going thru my head all day. Well done!!!

    Daisy: Daisy! I know you love your milks, but still! “Yucky goo” is NOT how I would describe my beloved caramel. Tho I can see that it wouldn’t exactly appeal to cats.

    babs – beetle: Mmm. I haven’t had a Twix in ages. I’m not sure if you have a differently-named Milky Way in the UK. It’s hard to imagine living in a country without a Milky Way, whatever its name.

    Lola: Yes! And anyway, you’ll feel silly just getting a candy bar. I’m going today and getting a cat dancer toy, which is something I’ve been meaning to get anyway. PRAY they have my Caramel Milky Way!

    absepa: Resist?! What is this crazy resisting you’re doing? STOP IT! Give in! Your wonderful haiku reveals that you are already a slave to the Caramel Milky Way, so you may as well march right over to Target (or drive) and get you some.

    Lin: HAHAHA! You’re so right about those “dog people.” I find the same thing with babies sometimes, too, tho at least they don’t usually sniff you. Just keep away from me, EVERYONE, and let me buy my candy bar in peace. Lin, of course I’ll pick you up one. I’ll save it till we have our blogger meet-up.

    Lauren: I’m so glad you included that final comment, because I would NEVER have thought that you loved chocolate. Now just where are you getting all these crazy chocolate concoctions? Tetrazzini? Brandy slurpee — supreme? They all sound wonderful — like something out of Willy Wonka. Sigh. I’d love to live in your crazy chocolate world.

    WillOaks Studio: I wonder if PetSmart stores around the globe will suddenly see a spike in their sales (which will include cat toys, doggie bones, fish food, but mostly Caramel Milky Ways). Hell, yeah, I need a commission. C’mon, Milky Way! Cough up!

    Kathryn: I DID!!! I totally wrote them an e-mail after posting this. Actually, I wrote several, because their “Contact” box allows only like, 2 characters. I WILL get to the bottom of this. (I never did get the whole “let’s freeze a perfectly good candy bar” movement.)

    Your Daily Cute: They might! Also, someone above said she saw them at Target. Do you have a Target nearby? Then what are you waiting for???!!!

    Katie: Oh, boy. You’re tempting me. My husband would kill me if I spent that kind of money on candy, but if Milky Way would sponsor me or something, I would TOTALLY do it. Believe me.

    Mone: HAR!

    cardiogirl: WHAT? But if you don’t like nougat, wouldn’t you at least be tempted to try the Caramel Milky Way? I think you might love it. Oh, but I see. You don’t even like Snicker’s caramel. Huh. I never realized the nougats were that different. Your ode made me cry a little.

    BuggysL: OK, so: movies, toilet paper, and Milky Ways. That’s about all I would need too. Oh, and Crackerfuls. I’m addicted to those.

    Tara: You do NOT mess with pregnancy cravings. I hope your husband is out there, right now, tramping through the snow (I don’t know if it’s snowy where you are), looking for Caramel Milky Ways. I swear. I’m going out today. If my PetSmart still has them, I’m going to buy a bunch and give some away as prizes. YOU HAVE INSPIRED ME!

    Patty: Hmmm. I am a little suspicious of that PO Box donations plea. I’m glad you spoke up for all urinating-dog owners. They have a voice here, too. As long as they don’t poke or sniff the Milky Ways, we’ll all get along.

That’s just terrible! :) thanks for being funny

  42. 42 Regan

    Dear Milky Way,

    I love you. I love everything about you from the chocolate to the caramel. I think it’s wonderful that you can now be just caramel. But why at PetSmart, Milky Way? Are you hiding from original Milky Way so it doesn’t beat you up? Because everyone dumped original Milky Way for you?

    Well that’s a good idea. I think I’ll hide from original Milky Way too. Because I plan on dumping him right now and be with you, caramel only Milky Way.

    I love you, caramel Milky Way. Happy almost Valentine’s Day. ;)

    Patty: I went to PetSmart today (more details tomorrow) and only saw one dog. And no whizz.

    Sheila: HA! Excellent ode. I do believe the nougat is the fattening part, so this new “caramel only” Milky Way will indeed go straight to your ankles.

    Jay: I bet you could eat the caramel one. If so, be sure to check in tomorrow. I’m having a contest and giving away some of these very special Milky Ways. AND I’m shipping ANYwhere. So you might win!

    John Hilroy: Hee! I used to love 3 Muskateers. Loved that fluffy stuff. They’re not as fattening as other candy bars. But the Milky Way was one of my first loves. None of those stupid nuts getting in the way.

    Regan: I’ll be sure to forward your letter. I hope you get a reply. I think you and Caramel Milky Way will be very happy together.

    I’ve been frequently confused by the odd array of food items at Pet Stores. I was at a Petsmart in Cleveland a few years back and found fruit rollups and cream soda. Either there’s some kind of dietary supplement for dogs that I don’t know about or the managers are stocking the shelves with their favorite snacks….. If I ran a Petsmart I would have a pizza and beer aisle.

    Noughat actually is a word… just not a word to describe delicious candy filling. Noughat, pronounced as “no-ug-hat,” is a word used to describe a “very attractive cap, headpiece or garment worn on one’s head.”

    I really love your blog by the way, it’s so funny. And I hope you feel fully recovered soon!

    Kathleen Kaufman: Mmmm. I would love to go to your PetSmart. My ideal PetSmart would have, obviously, Caramel Milky Ways, as well as donuts, cupcakes, those dijon and honey potato chips, and hot dogs. Tho I don’t know if I would trust a PetSmart hot dog . . .

    Preston: You’re still welcome here. Believe it or not, despite the fact that I am not a fan of the nut, I like Snickers, too. They were always one of the top three of my childhood Halloween hauls (Snickers, Milky Way, Baby Ruth). There will always be a place in my heart for Snickers. But not Baby Ruth.

    Jeff: Hmmm, sounds like a Minnesota thing.

    Erika: HI! And welcome, creepy commenter! Nothing is too awkward or creepy here. But I do appreciate your tact. So tell me, did you ever check out your PetSmart?
