Dear Chocolate Covered Gummy Bears

Dear Chocolate Covered Gummy Bears,
Why do you make me hate South Texas so? I can live without Einstein Bros. Bagels. No Jamba Juice is a trial but I am able to survive. I shed a tear now and then about my lack of Salt and Vinegar chips but even that doesn't seem to destroy my love for my beaches and palm trees. All of the things that South Texas deprives me of, I have been able to grin and bear (excuse the pun), until now.

Why is it that even in the very second that you reappear into my life, you have to remind me that I cannot buy you? Are you just there to taunt me with your chocolately, gummy goodness? I cannot resist your charms. My husband bought me a full pound of your sweetness so that I would have some of your friends to accompany me home but alas, between the two of us, we ate every single little bear before we ever stepped foot on the plane home.

It must be my sad fate to live without you. So I bid you adieu, until then next time I meet you in the aisles of a WINCO, I will miss you. I must thank you for your presence, even if all it has done it make my biggest dream in life be living next door to a WINCO, I thank you none the less.
Signed,
a girl in need of chocolate, who wishes that chocolate could contain gummy bears.

Chocolate gummy bears?? Never heard of 'em. Thought the plain gummies were bad enough. Oh no! Did I say that?? :-) I guess there are just two kinds of people - those who love gummies and those who don't. :-)

Hope your chocolate-covered gummies soon come to sustain you and give you joy. ;-)

I don't know........chocolate covered gummy bears? Guess I shouldn't judge before I try them. Can't say I've ever seen them here. Sorry to hear you can't get them in South Texas. What about the good ol' internet?

You don't have Salt and Vinegar chips down there?! For shame! Are you living in the US? Man, I could really go for some of those chips. The gummies - you can have 'em. I've a big salt tooth.

Those sound perfect..when i'm stressed I like two things gummy bears and chocolate someone was a smart cookie and put them together. Wonder if we have them here in PA. Where we live in the USA I'm missing my Canadian Harveys burgers, My Swiss Chalet chicken dinners and ketchup chips. :)
