I donâ€™t get addicted to powdery substances that are sold by the gram in small packets very often, but when I do, let me tell you, itâ€™s hard to kick the addiction.
This was the case with the new Butterfinger Hot Cocoa Mix. It tastes like Butterfinger, except without the melted chocolate on my fingers, the crispy peanut butter crumbs around my mouth, and the annoying folks who see me eating a Butterfinger and try to be funny by saying, â€œNobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger,â€ like Bart Simpson.
Itâ€™s damn good stuff and itâ€™s perfect for keeping me warm during these cold winter nights that get down to the high 60â€™s here in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. (Hey, itâ€™s frickenâ€™ cold to me!)
Every time I take a hit of the Butterfinger Hot Cocoa Mix, I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Itâ€™s much better than the cold, dark, and bitter feeling I usually have.
It took about two days to blow off that first box of eight hits. They were so good and they made me feel so warm that I wanted more. Fortunately, when I bought the first box, I bought it for $2.00. But when I went to buy more at the â€œstoreâ€ I shop at, the price jumped to $3.69.
I KNEW that was going to happen. Thatâ€™s just how the â€œgameâ€ is played. First, they sell it to me cheap and when I get hooked on it, they jack up the price.
You know what, I can quit whenever I want, man.
I donâ€™t NEED the Butterfinger Hot Cocoa Mix.
I can get addicted to something else. Something thatâ€™s FREE.
Or window shopping.
Or Dr. Phil.
Okay wait, definitely NOT Dr. Phil.
Oh man itâ€™s cold. I could definitely use some Butterfinger Hot Cocoa Mix right now.
