Dangerous Costco purchase

These are going to be a challenge for me! I should never have opened the package , because now it is no holds barred. They are a perfect combo of dark chocolate sweetness, crunchy, and a bit of salt.

And in true Costco fashion, it is a big bag.

Oh no! It's one of my favorite combinations! Just looking at your photo makes me want to dash over to Costco to buy my own BIG BAG!

I'll have to control myself, tho, since I have a dental appointment in a few hours. (Thank goodness for such distractions!)

Yum! And I get itófor me itís all about opening the bag. A huge bag of M&Ms can sit in my cupboard for months, but when opened, theyíre gone in 2 days.

Dh gets the bag like that with just pretzel crisps sometimes, I had no idea they came covered in dark chocolate, too!! I'm sure he's intentionally keeping that information from me

I have been buying my own pretzel chip and dipping them in the coating chocolate you buy for strawberries for a few months now. So yummy with the sweet and salty combo.

Have I got a story about those!

My uncle brought them on vacation 2 years in a row and when he came for the holidays he always had a bag for me. Then all of the sudden he couldn't get them at Costco. We all looked and looked, but could never find them. Well we did fine small bags, but they were almost as much as the Costco bug bag. We all look wherever we are to see if we'll get lucky. Uncle even contacts company and they said it was a holiday item.

DH & I drove to see DD in Michigan last week. She had told me ahead of time she had a surprise. Guess what she found at Costco????? I was do excited!

I find I can't forget on these. I eat a small dish of them and then I'm good.

You are saying I need to stock up on them?

I am trying to stick to just one serving of 5 per day. So far I have eaten enough to get me through Sunday

Yes, stock up! You never know when they'll disappear!

DD doesn't have a Costco membership. She was going with ex-bf. She's thinking if getting one and a big reason is these yummy treats!
