last year's candy

While you're out at some fancy restaurant, gazing into the eyes of your beloved and hoping to get her drunk enough to get laid, know that I'm at home packing boxes for an impending move. In the process I've found time to make some important scientific junk food discoveries!

In the treat basket that hides out in the pantry I found 2 year old chocolate covered espresso beans, looking rather scary - probably still edible, but they looked sad, so they got the boot. Right next to this were two boxes of Sweetheart candies vintage 2008.  Curious to see if Sweethearts grow stale, I tried a whole box and much to my sweet tooth's delight I happily report that these things have a shelf life like a Twinkie.

Happy Valentine's Day!
