Still The King

Thursday, August 16, 2007
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's passing, Reese's has released Reese's Peanut Butter and Banana Creme cups. Oh god, they are fabulous. Peanut butter and banana. Mmmm. Peanut butter and chocolate. Mmmm. Chocolate and banana. Mmmm. Put them all together and what do you get? MMMMMMMM. The King was onto something there. Many thanks to Betty who was recently transferred to California and smuggled a stack of them into the country this past weekend (shhhhh! don't tell customs!). I'm surprised they weren't found by a hungry bomb sniffing dog....

I think she stole Santa's bag of goodies because she just kept pulling stuff out of it! Bets tried to trick me by first trying to pass of a package of Reese's Peanut Butter and Marshmallow cups as the elusive treat - the PB and Banana aren't available here in Canada (It was also strange reading a food wrapper that wasn't in both official languages). I was not fooled. You have to get up mighty early in the morning to fool the Captain. After burying me in an avalanche of peanut butter and banana cups, she presented her last gift: Reese's Peanut Butter Cup flavoured lip gloss. Um....ok. Apparently those folks down there in the U.S. of A. are a tad bit freaky when it comes to the lip gloss. The smell alone is a bit overwhelming. I'm a bit scared to actually try it. But I love that she was thoughtful enough to pick it up for me! I'm also worried that she thinks I have some weird addiction to PB cups...which I don't. Honestly. Really, I don't. Nope.

Eww, the candy sounds gross. But I'm sure I could get addicted to the lip gloss.

I'm not sold on the peanut butter and banana thing. Banana flavoured candy always tastes like this antibiotic I took as a kid.

I don't like banana-flavoured stuff, though I like bananas. Weird, I know. The lip gloss sounds scrumptious...perhaps it might attract a chocolate-loving male into the captain's life...?

I have seen these around town and wanted to try them. I usually avoid candy bars, but then I asked myself "What would Elvis do?"

SME said...

Ooooh, that's why all the Elvis stuff on TV! Duh.
I tried the PB & banana cups...divine.

I am sure the King would be proud!
Jeez, if you eat one of those a day you not only 'Live like a king' as the label says but you will also DIE like THE King.
