With Halloween coming, we picked up two large bags of chocolate delicacies at Sam’s Club last weekend, in preparation for the costumed masses that happily descend on our house in suburbia.
Now, I may (or may not) have opened said bag of candy in advance and behind closed doors, you know, just to sample the wares and make sure nothing is poisoned. I was shocked and chagrined to see that fun is apparently getting smaller, with Snickers and Milky Ways (and maybe more — who knows how far this travesty has spread) now tinier than ever, mysteriously shrunken from the candy I remember by about 1/3. I thought I was crazy until my friend Jenn recently commented on the same abhorrence, reassuring me that I’m not completely nuts yet.
You don’t just go around messing with Halloween history, M&M/Mars Co.! Is nothing SACRED anymore?
