M & M's

'The husband' loves chocolate.....and since we both watch our weight, yet like sweet treats, we don't tempt ourselves by having desserts such as cakes, cookies, and ice cream in the house.  
Instead, we've been purchasing large boxes of individual packages of M & M's at Sam's Club. We've found that portion control packaging makes it easier for us not to over-consume......rather than buying a 1 or 2# bag of M & M's....which we'd dig in and have a hand full every time we passed by the kitchen. 

So, this has been working well for quite some time....the husband buys the dark chocolate, I like the milk chocolate.  BUT.....drat....Sam's Club apparently no longer carries his preference and he's been in quite a twit lately running from super market to super market trying to find individual packages of M & M's dark.

I may have to take his internet privileges a huge box was delivered direct from Mars Candy.....inside with the melted ice pack were numerous 24 pack boxes of M & M's Dark!

He claims he saved on the shipping by buying in bulk!  What a guy......
