Munchies: Gummy Bears From Albanese Candy
I couldn’t think of how to start this post, and while I sit here on a cloud of smoke I am thinking of this moment where Homer Simpson who is stuck at sea (Boy Scoutz ‘n the Hood) is dreaming about dancing with two lollipops and an ice cream cone to the tune of “Sugar, Sugar”.
Picture me as Homer, but dancing with Gummy Bears instead.
While I typically like to have healthy snack items around when the munchies kick in, I almost never want that apple and peanut butter. Instead I find myself reaching for these Albanese Gummy Bears.
I found these gummy bears at Fred Meyer after someone recommended them to me. I’m so glad I listened because they are so damn good! They can be found in the granola and nut area near the bakery, packaged in clear plastic containers at 1lb for $3.99. Each container contains 12 flavors: Cherry, Pink Grapefruit, Watermelon, Strawberry, Orange, Blue Raspberry, Lime, Grape, Green Apple, Mango, Pineapple and lemon.
The gummy bears are slightly larger than Haribo Gummy Bears, they’re juicier and more colorful too. I’ve become so hooked that I usually buy two containers at a time just in case the Freddy’s I go to runs out, and they have! Yes, I’ve traveled to a second Freddy’s just to satisfy my craving. I can’t help it, I’m a woman obsessed.
Seriously, I can’t shut up about them. Tweets, texts, facebook posts, and instant messages have all been sent. You walk in my house and you bet I’m gonna shove them down your throat. All I am trying to say is you need these in your life.
