Look! It's UNREAL Candy!

The FedEX driver knocked on the door and handed me this box today. I was very surprised because I didn't order anything.



I attended a Twitter Party, last month, where I won some UNREAL candy. It was so good!



WooHoo! It's from UNREAL Candy!

Here's an excerpt of their story! We have unjunked some of America’s favorite candy. And true to Nicky’s dream, we think it tastes better without the corn syrup, the artificial ingredients, the partially hydrogenated oils, and, believe it or not, with less sugar. In place of the junk, we’ve added more of the good stuff, like more cacao, real caramel, and peanuts. We’ve also added more protein and fiber from real food, so that each candy has a low glycemic index. All of this is simply a product of the UNREAL culture, a culture that brings together people from different walks of life and with different experiences. Our team is eclectic and unique (it even includes an Oompa Loompa and a dog named Lola).



We shared the last UNREAL Candy shipment with friends and co-workers. Many commented that they loved this candy much better then national brands. (we do too) Gotta go...I'll be dropping off a few boxes to the maintenance and office staff today. Happy Thanksgiving!

I've eaten ones like MnMs and they taste like MnMs. My son and family have them so I had to try them.
Becky,
I totally agree with you. Unreal Candy is so good.

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
