Location: DeVeres Irish Pub in Sacramento, California
Notes: Had to try this one around my birthday! I have no idea how this drink came about or how it got it’s name, since it doesn’t have chocolate in it. Except when you do drink it, it’s very much chocolate tasting. a little on the sweet side with the sugar rim but yummy.
I wasn’t sure why this would be a bucket list item. But when I got a box of raisinets and opened them, I understood. Shaking out into my hand, I had a whole bunch and I just wanted to throw them into my mouth. It takes patience and control to just pick up one little chocolate covered raisin and put in the mouth. I solved this by putting them into a bowl and leaving it on the kitchen counter. Whenever I go by it, I pick one raisinet up and eat it. Doing it this way is taking a lot longer to finish the box but it’s kind of fun.
How would you get yourself to eat one piece of candy at a time when you would rather throw a mouthful in?
I recently opened a bag of peanut m&m’s thinking I could cross this off. There was only 1 green one in the regular snack sized bag. I could have eaten that one and call it good but JUST 1? I was thinking I was going to have to get a big bag because there are not many green m&m’s each bag.
I was browsing Target around Christmas and saw they had the Christmas themed candies out. They would have to have some that had more then your average number of green ones in a bag. They had them. Then I went by the regular candy aisle to get Raisinets for another “bucket” list item. I took a glance at the m&m’s there and my feet stopped in their tracks. There was a bag that was JUST GREEN m&m’s. It was like the m&m gods heard my prayer and knew I had this item to cross off. This way I wasn’t going to waste any of the other colored m&m’s. I was super happy, and felt like dancing. Luckily I resisted because I am sure people would not understand.
Cheers to the GREEN m&m’s!
Do you have a favorite m&m color?
