Where the heck have you been?

Happy One monthiversary since my last post. I'm pretty bad at this whole thing.

I appreciate all the subtle suggestions from the "die hard" readers to get me going again.

I liked the one about how hard it is to get a good bite on a whole plate of nachos...and how comedians should start telling people "we have a crappy show tonight and couldn't really book any good guests," but stick around!

But after today's life changing moment, it's become clear what I need to write about.

Who knew a casual trip to the vending machine would make such a difference. There I was, in a mode of indecisiveness that was even impressive for me, when I decided to give Butterfinger Crisp a try.

Like millions of Americans, I've glanced over The Crisp thousands of times on a way to a different candy selection. It just never seemed to be that appealing of a chocolate hybrid.

But holy Bart Simpson, Nestle is doing a terrible job marketing this thing. It's the world's biggest secret. It's nobody's go to chocolate bar and it may just be the best thing going right now.

It's all the fun of your normal butterfinger, plus a little wafer that really puts the taste over the top...and that's only part of its glory.

As a huge fan of Butterfinger the original, I've always had a problem with it's crumblyness. After far too many pieces of chocolate and finger have fallen into the crevices of my keyboard, I banished the bar from the only pulling it out on the golf course. It went from my ace to my long reliever.

To my pleasant surprise, The Crisp eliminates this problem. The wafery goodness holds the whole thing together. It's technology way beyond our chocolate years.

So everybody out there who hasn't tried The Crisp (and that's everybody out there), go buy one before they're taken off the market. Let's tip this thing and give it a fair shot.

You too will be wondering where it's been for so this blog.
