How Mike And Ike's Can Make Your Night

In Need Of A Pick Me Up

One box will do just fine

The sweetness that pleases

A little bit chewy

The wonderful fruit flavor

Small enough to have a couple at a time

They come in lemon and lime

Orange and strawberry

My favorite is cherry

I prefer to have one flavor then another

I even like the noise they make

When I shake the box and they bang together

It takes my mind of any situation

I just enjoy a good chew

They do stick to my teeth

My dentist probably has stock in the company too

I know you get a lot in one box

Next time I will count them

Now maybe I have sugar rush

All I know for sure

That a few handfuls of Mike and Ike's was just enough

That sounds very tempting, Dream On. I've never seen or tried those, but I'm currently into Brookside's dark chocolate bits with fruity centers. Sounds similar. I find them at Sam's. They also come quite a few in a bag.

The bag I have now has A├žai and Blueberry flavored chewy centers (not so chewy that they really stick to my teeth, but too chewy to just suck, so they do get into my teeth when I bite into them after I suck the chocolate off the outside). I've also tried the pomegranate centered ones. Yummy!

A little indulgence doesn't hurt much, and I can console myself that dark chocolate is the healthier choice, even doctor-recommended in moderate amounts! hehe.

Must be that we're both creative geniuses and need that sugar rush to keep us going. When I need that sweetness I got to have it.

Gypsy Rose Lee I am happy for the boost. I don't drink , smoke or like coffee so I guess this is my only vice.I turn to praying, exercise, love and nature walks for more motivation too. Your right the sweetness tastes so good. Good luck and always open for more tips. Thank you so much for reading.
