Candy Bar Conspiracy

I'm in the middle of a crisis.

There were three Milky Ways in my "candy stash" this morning. I know I have reached into the stash more than once tonight- but really? Three? In one day? It cannot be! There must be some kind of sugar crazed mouse in the house.

Have candy bars shrunk since I was a kid? Or is it just that I am bigger?

There must be some kind of multi-pronged milky way conspiracy going around.

mmm, milky way! I always stock a little dish on our coffee table with seasonal-themed candy. It's not because it actually helps me get in the holiday spirit or that we have guests over... it's so I can eat them all day long without having to "sneak" into a candy stash. You should try that approach!

They've definitely shrunk. You know - I saw this thing on "The TOday Show" (I LOATHE it but the Vanillas love it and watch it every single morning). Anyway, they were talking about how companies were increasing their profit margins by very slightly decreasing the size of their products. Not so much that you'd notice, but enough to improve their profits. Like by removing 2 tbsp. of peanut butter from the Jiff Jar. Sneaky, right? Anyway - I'm a Reese's girl, myself.
