You guys…no seriously, you guys…can we take it to the reals for a minute?
I know we’re all excited about the holidays and the orgiastic consumer frenzy we’re all supposed to get in, and I get it I swear. I mean like Orgiastic Consumer Frenzy is my middle name but I think we need to step back from our spittle-flecked high-interest credit cards and reflect what this season is truly all about.
That’s right. Haviland Orange Thin Mints.
OMG I love these so hard. They remind me of that orange/mint body wash my Dutch boyfriend used to get shipping from Den Haag when we were in college. But there’s chocolate! And I don’t need to worry about it using all the hair product.
I don’t really get excited by candy. I like those gummy ginger bears because if it’s ginger, I’m pretty much guaranteed to put it in my mouth eventually and the chewing relaxes my jaw so the tension of the day doesn’t cause me to grind down my pearly whites into pearly nubs OF RAGE, but when I saw Walgreen’s had these gorgeous little silver dollar-sized goodies back in stock I nearly wet myself all over a non-sectarian blue aluminum holiday tree, and frankly since I nearly burned my church down this time last year (it wasn’t NEARLY as big a fire as you’d think) I can’t really risk that sort of electrical malfunction.
