peanut butter kitkat reprise

Thursday, March 30, 2006

i still can't believe we did this...Way back at the very beginning of this blog my eighth post was about discovering Peanut Butter KitKats and how much I loved them...

I also uttered these fateful words...

Hopefully they keep them around for a while, otherwise, I'm going to have to stock up.

Guess what's happened... yep, all the stores are marking them down and selling them off as a clearance line...

Peanut Butter KitKats are to be no more! Oh the humanity!

It also kind of explains the photo that goes along with the post... Ma and I went, well, a little crazed this evening on a brief trip to the shops...

First we grabbed the remaining 8 in the box in the confectionery aisle... they we saw three half full boxes on one of those "mark down" racks, with all the things that are either near or past their used by date or didn't sell, or whatever (I got a ton of raspberry licorice from the same rack a few weeks ago)... so, well, we filled up a box... 24 units... and bought that...

Then we went across the road to one of the OTHER supermarkets and bought their remaining 12 PBKK's (the second supermarket in the complex didn't have ANY), then went back to the first supermarket and cleared out the rest of what they had... we actually filled a second box and Ma was going to leave the last few orphans and I just looked at her and said "We are not buying every other one we can find, but leaving these six!"... so we bought those as well...

74 Peanut Butter KitKats and just over $60 later...

They've all gone to live at Ma's place, since she has much greater willpower than me (not to mention a lot more storage space)... she did say though, that if we only have one a week each, these will last us all the way to Christmas... which is just a scary thought... Not to mention the fact I still have five of the suckers in my fridge... plus the four or five Ma has at home... so that's around 84 Peanut Butter KitKats between us...

Current Mood: no more pbkks!

Are we a bit obsessed? That is the funniest thing I heard in a long time!

It's maybe slightly possibly that we could be a tiny little bit obsessed... maybe... :P
