Hey, remember my trials and tribulations with my several-favorites-ago new snack, the Gourmet Lollipop? Even Steven has taken on my case.
Wednesday, I was in The Devil's Playground, and remembered that I was looking for some Gourmet Lollipops. The regular Devil's Playground nearest the Mansion has been out. Out of the bags, and not re-stocking the wooden holders at the checkouts. So while I was at The Devil's Playground over in Bill-Paying Town, I checked the shelf, and there were five or six bags. Of course I picked them up to peer through the little window hole on the front. On the fourth bag, I noticed TWO of the Bubble Gum flavor, and one of the Cotton Candy. I figured 3 out of 7 isn't bad odds. At least I'd be getting three that I liked, with the possibility of others I couldn't see, for slightly over the price I'd pay for three single suckers at the checkout.
I set the bag aside when I got home, and then opened it up Friday night, when I was headed to my OPC (Old People Chair) to watch my DVR of LIVE PD. That's my routine. LIVE PD is on Friday and Saturday nights, and I enjoy a Gourmet Lollipop while watching. The show is 3 hours long (but only about two if you don't watch it live, and zap through the commercials). A Gourmet Lollipop might last almost an hour, depending on how vigorous you are in trying to devour it.
Anyhoo...I cut the top off the bag of Gourmet Lollipops, and peered inside, eager to see what else was in there, not visible through the window. SWEET GUMMI MARY! That looked like a lot of lollipops! In fact, my new bag contained 9 Gourmet Lollipops! The bag clearly says 7 on the front label.
Maybe I should compare the weight of all those bags next time! To see if I can pull off this feat again. I dumped out the lollipops, and this is what I have.
My favorites are well-represented. I have 3 Bubble Gum, 3 Cotton Candy, 1 Wild Cherry, 1 Mystery, and 1 dreaded Watermelon. I'm not complaining! I'm not even going to write a letter to the Original Gourmet Food Co. to ask why the bag says 7 suckers, but shows 10 in the picture.
Excuse me. I have plans with a Bubble Gum lollipop. It's time to go start watching my recording of LIVE PD.
