No Such Agency: miss diminutive:
I started with taffy as well. Soon I was blowing boys behind the basketball court during recess for Reese's Pieces.

True Story.

Let's be honest, that wasn't about the Reese's Pieces, was it?


.....I may have been running for class president.....

George Babbitt: radarlove: If memory serves (I worked in the industry so my own personal pricing was a good bit less) they retail for around $10 a bar. I know we were selling them for less, right around the wholesale cost, which is more like $6 or $7 I think? It has been a couple of years since our shop got shut down, so prices may have changed since then. Should be around there, though.

The last time I heard the cost of sparkly green was about 10 years ago at about ~$50 per 1/8th. So this is cheaper for the time and reward or more?


That's still accurate for street prices.  I have no idea how much something like a TKO bar would sell for on the black market, though.  You can generally get a far better deal at the right dispensary than you can on the street, so a contraband TKO bar would probably have a pretty hefty markup.

To be fair, we made virtually no money off of these things, despite them being one of our best sellers.  They (along with Cheeba Chews, medicated honey sticks, and a couple of specific strains of bud) were very popular among our clients who are veterans, and we sold those things that particularly helped veterans at cost (or occasionally even less).  We were very popular with the local veteran community.  We were a really good store.  I miss that job terribly.  I've never felt so deeply fulfilled.

I will always love that place and what it meant to not just me, but the community at large.

I have an ex I not so lovingly refer to as "The Evil One".  However, in spite of her myriad faults, she makes the BEST GOT DANG butterscotch chip cookies I've ever had.  With her own "special" butter.  As mentioned, I call them "coma cookies".

My kids still prefer fruit juice and milk over cokes. Hopefully, that will last for a few more years.

As a kid, there was always candy of some sort around the house. I didn't eat it all at once, simply enjoyed a piece now and then. My friends however were DENIED at home, so when they came to visit me they gobbled it like piggies.

radarlove: Slaves2Darkness: Ant: Slaves2Darkness: Ant: Her husband, Gary, had been listening to the exchange, and with a dark glare in my direction, he hissed at Laura, "Oh, so I guess you'll start giving him crack now, too?"

Gary is a farking moron. Everyone I know ate tons upon tons of candy as a kid, and none of them are junkies. Shouldn't at least one of them be a junky if there's some link?

Do you now or have you ever smoked pot?
If you say yes you are a junkie and it started with candy. If you say no, you are a liar and it started with candy.

I don't now, but I have in the past. Wow! I never knew it was the candy that made me do it.

Exactly which is why we need to legalize it, because it is just like candy and who doesn't like candy?

On that note, I would like to present to you my absolute favorite candy bar- the greatest candy bar in existence- the motherfarking TKO bar:

[d123t173g8yxd6.cloudfront.net image 770x578]

This big boy is a quarter pound of marshmallow, peanuts, pretzel pieces, peanut butter and rich milk chocolate...all infused with a shiatLOAD of THC.

It is hands down the tastiest (and arguably most potent) edible I've ever had in my life, and I say that having worked for a competitor of Gaia's Garden.  The only problem is that you can only take a bite every fourteen hours or so (because that's how long the coma lasts).


Where the fark can I get one of those?!!!!
