Poison. P-P-P-Poison.

Dave stopped into 7-Eleven last night and found the above. (What forbidden snack was Dave after in that bastion of junk food? I don’t know.)

  • Ehsa says:

    I'm sorry Matt F — I just gotta say major yikes on the double butter + Fruiti Pebbles! In my former life, I would have been asking for the recipe! Oh my, how one's point of view can change, thank goodness!

  • MelG says:

    Oh my, those used to be one of my favorite things on earth. I admit to trying a bit a month or two ago, so sweet I had to spit it out. But back in the day, I would have been in heaven.
