Well, if you know anything about me, you know that Red Vines licorice is in my top 3 treats of choice. The reason for this is because they are thicker pieces than the meesley twizzlers.

So the last few bags I have boughten I have noticed the pieces are getting skinnier and smaller! I thought maybe it was just a figment (spelling? or even a real word?) of my imagination. Then on our trip, I brought along a bag and I was looking over the nutrition information. There is 140 cals in 4 pieces. 4 pieces! It used to be 140 cals in 2 pieces! They have basically been cut in half!

Mostly, I just wanted to inform you of this injustice. I will not stop eating these, because it's more than just the thickness that I like. It's the fact that it dyes your toungue red, sticks in your teeth so much it could pull out a cavity, it's the best road trip treat, and it's only $.99 at Wal-Mart.

I am so happy your home. I have been completely bored. It seems like nobody has updated their blogs this week!! Plus I have been potty training CS and so I have been stuck at home! Oh and I cant believe the nerve of Red Vines!! At least they aren't taking them off the market. Everything I like gets discontinued!
