Sweets

During my long school days, I have very few choices for food. Either I eat meat that is called chicken covered in sauce that is called teriyaki, nachos or frozen pizza advertised as fresh. NO THANK YOU. So I turn to candy.

There are two types of candy that stave off my hunger for nine hours. Butter Rum Lifesavers and Orange Tic Tacs.






These are by far the best lifesaver, the best hard candy for that matter. I don't care what you say, butterscotch is a classy flavor. I can't get enough of it. And when I am sitting in a 75 minute class with a girl who can't stop talking about how pissed she is that Al Gore won "that award," that we have to watch "his stupid Inconvenient Truth," and that "global warming has been going on for years, a proven fact, but also global cooling! No one needs to worry about a thing!" Butter Rum Lifesavers keep me sane. They are an actual lifesaver, which I appreciate.






Orange Tic Tacs are what keep my stomach from growling continuously. I put about ten in my mouth each time I feel like I am going to die of starvation and my hunger is satiated. And when my head is about to explode I just pour a few in my mouth and feel fine again.

I will never spend $1.39 on rice covered in salty teriyaki again. I will just keep to my sweets. Type 2 Diabetes here I come.

Your post made me investigate my own Life Savers Sweet Storybook for Butter Rum Life Savers, but there were none. Rest assured that I will give you every Butter Rum Life Saver that I ever come across. I think they're terrible.

i like thinking of them as actual life savers too.

You're right, Butter Rum is certainly the best flavor. Although I do enjoy the Pep-O-Mint kind for the fresh, clean feeling. And for the pep, of course.

Oh! You are going to die from lack of nutrition! Bring a gronola bar or some nuts with you to class! I am so worried about you.

I tried to get aboard with orange tic-tacs, but I could never quite get myself to continue the habit. Mostly because they don't freshen my breath like I expect tic-tacs to do.

Also, don't listen to Cassidy. I carry granola bars with me, and I regret every time I put one in my mouth. Either ignore her, or get some less-healthy granola bars, because Nature Valley is not all it's cracked up to be.

What was that deleted comment? Some smear campaign against you?
