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?
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?
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!
