Fun Monday #29...on Tuesday!



Beckie wants to know:

...what your favorite treat is. Is it sweet or sour? Is it plain or salty? Is it candy or chocolate? Is it homemade or store bought? For instance, if your favorite is chocolate, tell us what kind specifically - sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes not so much. I have heard a lot of talk about Junior Mints, but is it your favorite or just a tasty treat? It can be anything, popcorn, peanuts, ice cream or chips, maybe you have more than one favorite - that is ok, just show us your favorite(s) and tell us why you like it so much. C’mon, what gets you all juiced up?

A bar of Cadbury Dairy Milk eaten with a hot cup of tea, dunked into the tea so it melts and I suck all the melted bits off before dunking again, mmmmm...

While we're on the subject of treats these would come a close second. Thanks Karmyn for making my day with this delightful package I received in the mail.

Agree with the Dairy Milk wholeheartedly but cannot stand mint for some reason!

ChrisB said...

I would substitute the tea for coffee but agree with dunking cadbury's choc. I've just made coffee but have no choc! Lucky you to get junior mints- make sure they don't disappear this time!!!!

Melanie said...

Mmmmm yummy yummy! Looks delicious. It's bee such a long time since I've had Junior Mints!

theotherbear said...

You dunk a whole block of chocolate???
You need to get yourself some TIm Tams and try them (see my Fun Monday post).

Steffi said...

Delicious chocolate and I was not sure what are "Junior Mints"...Now I know it...I think ´they are a little bit like the "After Eight" chocolate?!

frannie said...

anything chocolate.... yummy!

laurie said...

hmmm... looks like i should hold off a few weeks on my shipment of junior mints. you are well-supplied!

do you like pearsons mint patties? like junior mints, only bigger. yum.

mjd said...

I have not tasted the Cadbury Dairy Milk bar that you mention. I do not care for the Cadbury Eggs that others like so much, but I do rather enjoy a box of tasty Junior Mints now and then.

alisonwonderland said...

i seriously considered putting a photo of a Cadbury bar on my post - but i'd already eaten the last one i'd purchased ... :o)

BTW my older daughter doesn't like popcorn and, in fact, won't even touch it.

swamp witch said...

Hang on to those Junior Mints. How sweet of Karmyn.
Fun Monday is spilling over into Tuesday and I can't resist the temptation any longer.
I'm off to go buy some chocolate.

Happy Working Mom said...

I absolutely love chocolate!!!

Asha said...

Droooollliiinngg!:)

Beckie said...

You can't go wrong with chocolate!

I hope you are rested up from your trip!

enidd said...

dairy milk, yum. nearly as good as chocolate truffles.

nikki said...

Junior Mints are just about the most perfect food aren't they?

dawn said...

Dairy milk is yummy for sure, it satisfies a chocolate fix. I love to let it melt in my mouth and to savour it.

I don't get Junior Mints often, but I do the same with them.

Actually, I probably do the same with most treats. You would think I would be slimmer, but I just eat for longer.

Sam said...

ick - dairy milk. are you really related to me?

Robinella said...

Junior Mints are a fav of mine, but it goes in cycles. Seeing that picture may have jumpstarted the cycle again. Thanks. Gotta go get some.

Emma in Canada said...

William does the exact same thing. He buys his Cadbury's at the British shop, which costs a fortune but he says the Canadian Cadbury's tastes awful.

As I write this, I realize I've probably said that exact thing beofre. Sorry.

Rachel said...

I had to stop myself from jumping into the computer for that chocolate bar!

Melissa said...

I luurve Junior Mints. Cadbury's has always been a little too rich for me - I like dark chocolate. :)

Karmyn R said...

YEAH! They made it for Fun Monday! I'm glad they arrived okay. (I was a little worried about the heat - hopefully the Post Service didn't leave the package laying in the sun somewhere in the Southern US).

I love Cadbury too.

laurie said...

got your message. all's fine here--had another huge storm last night but no damage other than losing our power again for about four or five hours.

thanks for checking in. i should have realized: bloglines never lies!

Christine said...

Love, love, love Junior Mints, and the Cadburys, also at Easter time, their cream eggs. Anything chocolate really!!

Now, I'm off to find a chocolate fix!

Beccy, what kind of Diabetic cake did you make?

Sister Theresa said...

Chocolate + wine = Erotica

Robocop said...

I like Cadbury Dairy Milk. I also like Cadbury's Fruit and Nut bars.

Raven_Dase said...

ooohoohhoohh i love junior mints!!!!

la bellina mammina said...

you dunk chocolate in your tea???!

Carrie said...

I really love Junior Mints, too! Great choice. To answer your question from your comment on my blog, yes - Hot Tamales are hot and cinnamony.

Catwoman said...

You have just caused my keyboard to be soaked in drool... How cruel of you woman, I'm on a diet here!!!!

Do you know what it's like to read that description and stop yourself from eating your computer screen? Sigh... I would absolutely kill for a Cadbury dairy bar. And dunked in tea? I never thought of that before, but it sounds absolutely DIVINE!

Kahless said...

Dairy Milk and a cup of tea. Divine.

CPA Mom said...

I love Cadbury Diary Milk. I've not had it in years though. I 'm not sure it is sold here.

So, do you like the Junior Mints or Peppermint Patties best? You seem to be getting a lot of them lately...lucky duck!

Debbie said...

Hmmmm. I never thought of dunking chocolate. Why?? I'm gonna try it soon.

Tiger Lamb Girl said...

I thought I left a comment. Hmmm....comment fairies are eating my comments!

I was gonna say something about the mints, but I'm too distracted by the butterfinger jar on your more recent post. (haven't had a butterfinger in y.e.a.r.s......those sprinkles are lovely on ice cream).

my4kids said...

Junior mints are one of my favorites also! To funny your getting them in the mail after your post now! Hmmm what do I need to post about that I want??? :)
