Cup o' Gold

You never know what you'll find at the 99 Cent Only Store. A couple years ago I actually found some shoe polish that dated back to 1973. Sometimes, you find something really good. A couple of days ago I found a Cup o' Gold in the checkout line for the low price of 3/99 cents. Cup o' Gold is a delicious chocolate candy cup that, according to the manufacturer's website, is an old California classic recently brought back onto the market. It's a big milk chocolate cup with a marshmallowey filling. The chocolate itself is big and thick, not the thin shell that covers a Reese's. The clever bit with it, though, is that the chocolate has bits of toasted coconut and almond in it. This makes it crunchier and gives it a richer flavor, which is a nice contrast to the gooey filling.

Now, I don't know if the fact that it was at the 99 Cent Only Store means that it's been discontinued or if that just means they've got a distribution deal there. But there it is. Try it out.

The candy sounds enticing, but the company's web site looks like it was put together for 99 cents.

Obviously they're not any good, then. In the future I will restrict my links to professionally-designed web pages.

Actually, my one objection to this candy is that the name and the candy don't match. Shouldn't something called "Cup o' Gold" have a filling that's at least yellowish instead of white?
