Oh Mr. Wonka.
How you know the way to my heart.
So I couldn't help myself: I went to Target just to see how they were coming along with their Halloween selection.
Guess what? The candy's up. Mmmmm wonderful, delectable Halloween candy. Dress up the old candy in spooky colored bags bigger than my pillowcase and I can't help but want to buy wheelbarrows full.
So as I perused, fighting the urge to Scrooge McDuck in to the shelves and swim around, my eyes fell on WONKA CHEWY NERDS.
For those of you who read the site, you know my infatuation with these gems. If not, read up HERE.
There was a tag that said 3 for $5. And I knew that I was done. How much do I like these? Well I ate half a bag just driving home.
The Halloween edition bag is emblazoned with two Halloween colors: orange and purple and the nerds are dressed as a witch and a bat/devil/vampire-thing. I usually avoid purple in my Halloween but I understand it's need for slimy things and monsters. The bag foretells the flavors contained therein, for there are only two: grape and orange.
Two of the best flavors in my opinion. If you like Nerds and you like jellybeans for the love of god and all that is holy, pick yourself up a bag.
The fact that Giant Chewy Nerds are now available in 7-11s and convenience stores in pocket packs makes this bag only slightly less special. I'm so glad these are popular. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go buy the rest of the shelf.
