Afternoon snack gone wrong



Don't you hate it when you buy something because you think the picture on the box looks really good, then you get it home, open it up and it looks nothing like the picture?
Darn it! I was looking forward to this all afternoon.
What did I expect from a company called, Poppycock?!
I was expecting clusters of almonds, pecans and cashews drizzled with Belgian dark chocolate. What I got looked more like dog kibble.
Did I eat it? Of course I did! It's still chocolate. It was a'ight.
Will I be sucka-ed in again? Nope!
It just goes to show; you can't judge a chocolate by its box.

  2. That's a bummer. I was about to ask you where you got it until you flashed the inside of the package.

  6. Well, of course they oiled it up and airbrushed it for the picture, just like they do with supermodels!
    Pretty much all food ads are fake. Can you imagine how many people would really eat at McD's if the pictures on the menu looked like a real big mac?

  7. Kayelyn-That'll learn me. Welcome to my sidebar.

    Glitter-Warning: Do not buy this product. It's not worth the $3.99.

    lauren- I'm gonna stick with Harry and David treats from Target.

    aubrey- Speaking of chocolate and nuts, the cookies they give you at the Double Tree Inn are soooo delicious.

    b- I think the Living Scriptures are going to make an appearance on my Thursday Swap Day.

    heff- Amen, sister friend. I think Wendy's is the worst offender of their menu pics not looking like the real thing.

    You slut.

  9. *gasp!* Annie! Those cookies ARE the BEST!
    Big letters and punctuation are fully intentional!

  10. Millie- Only my mother gets to call me that!

    b- Double Tree cookies are too good to share with the kids.

  11. I am so excited to be on your sidebar. I need some celebration. Oh, just what to do?
    (I am not joking here. I really am excited and honored.)
    Not buy that snack that ruined your day. :P

  12. As long as you learned something from this experience...

  13. I haven't seen this travesty of good Poppycock. Original PC is yums.

  14. I like original poppycock, too. But I think I typed it poopycock about 4 times before I got it right. What would C Jung say about that?

    ReplyDelete
  15. That inside-the-package picture... it looks pretty cavernous in there. Were you a victim of the "contents sold by weight - not by volume" scam, or just really hungry?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Aww...poor Annie! Can't you sue for emotional trauma or something?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't see the drizzley stuff :(
    How dare they trick our Annie. Liars!

  18. Kayelyn- Just like everything I like and do everything I do and everything will be okay;)

    Tori-Lesson learned; stick to what I know.

    Sketchy-I hope my warning will spare you from repeating my mistake.

    E-Dub- You said "poopy", heh-heh-heh.

    Bad- Aforementioned picture was of the contents before I ate the whole thing. Like I said, it was chocolate.

    Kim- I think I can prove pain and suffering on this one.

    NCS- I don't know how many bags of Dove Chocolates I am gonna hafta eat to get of the taste of this inferior snack.

  19. I'm so offended that my beloved Poppycock...yep, makers of my favorite snackie delight on the planet...would stoop so low as to commit this type of criminal afternoon treat deception.

    I must be the only person around here who LOVES those Living Scripture movie thangs.

  20. I loved that you tried it anyway because it does look pretty bad. But, like you, as long as it has chocolate in it...

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'll learn from your mistakes. Poppycock? Really??

    ReplyDelete
  22. Mmmm, real poppycock is yummy. But who can blame you-"belgian love affair" I would want some of that, too!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nancy- It's been awhile since I've had the orginal Poppycock. I will give it another try on your good word.

    Yvonne- I am a not judgemental type of person. I will try any chocolate at least once.

    Melissa-I'll try not to lead you astray.

    Lisa- I know! Right?! How could I have resisted a name like that?

  24. Did you read all the ingredients before you ate it? I'm just askin

    ReplyDelete
  25. dang it, I've got to stop letting that rooster read over my shoulder. now he wants some poppycock

    ReplyDelete
  26. You know, I saw that stuff the other day and was almost sucked into buying it. It looked wonderful! However, after seeing what is actually inside the temptation is completely gone. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  27. By the way, have you tried a "Moose Munch Bar" from Target? OH MY!!! I got hooked on those about two years ago! At just over $2 a candy bar I have to be careful, but the dark chocolate one is so good I have even had dreams about eating it. I think I need to go to Target for some...uh...paper towels! Ya, Ya! Paper towels, that's it.

  28. I've seen that before and it didn't look like that... I wonder if it melted at one point... anyway... at least it was edible. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ickie-Oooh, but yum...Chocolate

  30. I'm ditto-ing (is that a word?) Tama's two comments
    Moose Munch Bars are heavenly:)

  31. yes...slight dissapointment with the nutty chocolaty thing....I am sure there was no dissapointment with the diet pepsi in a beautiful green gobblet.

  32. I ♥ cashew Poppycock even more than original! Mmmm, I want some! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I ate 3 chocolate dipped hazelnuts in your honor.
    And 1 toblerone triangle.
    And 1/2 a chocolote chips cookie.

    Just for you.

  34. Since I hadn't even seen that "In-dul-gence" line before - and thinking that it sure was a hokey name - I figured I'd look it up on the net. Turns out they have several other flavors in the line with names like Chocolate Crush, Nights In White Chocolate, Simply Diva, and Toast Of The Town.

    You chicks should be embarrassed that it works.
