Don't Let the Pretty Purple Packaging Fool You!

We keep M&M's in our freezer. We do this not because the only woman in the house is a bit of a chocoholic, which she is, but because these M&M's were part of the potty training process.
Despite the fact that the boys are trained, well usually, they do still, occasionally, ask for their M&M's after a successful trip to the toilet.
Only, we ran out of M&M's! So what if we ran out because I snuck a few here and there. So, what? The point is we had no more M&M's. So I bought more.

Only when I hit the candy aisle at the local Genuardi's my choices were Dark Chocolate with peanuts, Milk with Almonds, and peanut butter. What? Why were there exactly zero bags of original, milk chocolate M&M's?

So, I ventured out from the norm and went with the bright purple bag, dark chocolate with peanuts. After all, isn't dark chocolate supposed to better for you? You know what? They are not nearly as good. Nope. Not even close. Healthier, schmealthier, this is chocolate we are talking about not vegetables. Why mess with the original. Couldn't we just leave well-enough alone?
