Krackel: Confirmed to be chocolate

IMG_3534So, I know that I promised something potentially revelatory and/or lascivious Monday in my post about Whatchamacallits, contingent upon my consumption of a Krackel bar Tuesday.

And I still have something for you that’s potentially revelatory and/or lascivious!

Just leave Krackel out of it.

The thing that upset me so upon doing research on Whatchamacallits: In 2008, the candy bar was one of few subject to a formula change by Hershey’s, in a cost-cutting move. The change? Reducing the amount of cocoa butter and introducing vegetable oil, relegating the once-allowed-to-be-called-milk-chocolate-by-the-FDA status of its chocolate to a not-allowed-to-be-called-milk-chocolate-by-the-FDA one.

Which is kind of, in a word, gross. There are other words, too, but I don’t think they are actually real words and I’m just going to leave them alone in lieu of not-actually-real words of my own. Continue reading

Now Tell Me, What Do You Callit?

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/f4a/81881451/files/2015/01/img_3530.jpgSo I ate a Whatchamacallit on Saturday.

I had a whole little ditty thought up about how I used to eat them as a kid because of their name and really nothing else.

I was going to talk about how I just sort of forgot to keep eating Whatchamacallits and it was never out of spite but more I just grew into a different person and I’m so sorry.

I was going to talk about how it was nice to eat a Whatchamacallit and how I was so happy that circumstance was such that I got a chance to run into one again.

I was going to talk about how Whatchamacallit was a pretty tasty candy bar and I have nothing bad to say about them and I have a lot of respect for them actually we’re still good friends.

Then I found something out. I’ve decided to talk about something different …

… just after I eat a Krackel on Tuesday.

(Sorry about the tease. I don’t plan on making this a habit. I’m the worst.)

EDIT: Apparently there’s an h after the first W in Whatchamacallit (h/t: Sara Bar). I take back what I said about having a lot of respect …
