  1. Blueberry Lemon as ‘flavor of the year’? Seriously? Not in a million years would I have ever thought that, especially in a bagel. Those marketing folks at Thomas’s must be smoking something.

      1. Oh, I totally got that it’s a movie tie-in. I dunno, the fact that it’s called “chocolate chip-munk” made me think rodent poop straight away. But I had a rabbit as a kid, so I’ve seen my fair share of rodent droppings.

  2. They butterfinger has to use the word “cups” so you know what the inside is like, I have bought their products before (seasonal) thinking the inside was going to be like the cups and it’s not it’s the hard inside the (original) so bravo to them to stating so.. As for the “pick one Reese’s did comment” Reese’s doesn’t have multiple “insides” so it doesn’t need to be stated. And boom.

  3. This is Greg, who sent you the picture of the BBQ sauce sampler. I was actually quite impressed with those sauces, especially since it was made by Heinz. I have a TON of BBQ sauces and I was actually shocked at how good some of them were. My two faves are the Carolina and the Texas styles.
