My brilliant sister, Laura, is helping with my writer’s block and pitching in this link up for the Gypsy Mama’s Five Minute Friday. . .
This instantly made me think of the new Hershey’s product, Hershey’s Delights.
The first time I saw this product, my reaction was – What? Really? Now they are adding air pockets to make chocolate more enjoyable? Taking away tiny beads of chocolate and leaving behind…. air?
It’s always something, isn’t it? Something to made a product newer and better….heavier, or lighter, firmer or softer, chewier, crunchier, more this, more than, more than ever before! New and improved!
” Your taste buds have never experienced chocolate bubbles like these”
Um, guess what?!? My taste buds have never experienced chocolate bubbles at all. Well, unless you count blowing through a straw into a chocolate milk box in elementary school.
The point is – I get so tired of companies constantly bombarding us with new products. I would like the entire manufacturing world to go on a moratorium of new products, just to let us get used to the gazillions they’ve already shoved at us. Reese’s! We are ok with the original! We don’t need it mini, unwrapped, crunchy, dark (ok, the dark chocolate Reese’s are pretty good), or powdered in cereal form. Just give me the plain old kind.
Since it’s all about Jesus on these little delightful posts, I’ll let you ask yourself if you’ve demanded a newer, better, brighter, fluffier God anytime lately. Are we happy with the plain old sandal wearing, Pharisee smack down, prostitute loving, merciful and generous Lord? Or have you hoped that Jesus would offer a better tasting chocolate bubble?
Anyone want to answer that? Anyone want to offer my sister a little appreciation for saving the day? 🙂
