Rocket Attack

Argh. The Hallowe'en candy has hit the stores, and I have hit the Rockets. The only candy that dents my sugarfree armour, I mindlessly open row after row as I work, scarfing back their sugary, pilly goodness without thought.

I like that they've stayed the same for decades. You will never see 'new and improved' splashed across a Rocket wrapper. They don't even change the logo. And while they are often imitated, they are never matched. And unlike the chocolate companies that keep trying to pass off whatever it is they call chocolate these days, the lowly Rocket aims low and never misses.

I used to just claim them out of the kids' trick or treat bags. But now those fabulous days of stealing their candy after they go to bed is over, I must buy my own stash. I noticed with alarm my stocks were dwindling, and resigned myself to less mindless eating. Until I found each kid grabbing a handful of them every morning, and realized they were now stealing them from me.

Turn about is fair play.

What's really bad though, is when you buy your kids treats so you can steal 'em from them.

I don't think my teenagers really like 'Dunkaroo's' any more, but its my excuse, and I'm sticking to it!
