    I used to scrape curls of butter off the block of butter with my fingernails and eat them straight up (in large quantities) shudder shudder. Then again, I also ate those little red sausages straight up raw, so I was quite a disgusting child.

    Anything peanut-butter-filled….. AMEN.

    Love your first paragraph, Hannah. Really, ya gotta laugh.

    The world IS hysterical. At times. I’m on the phone with India right now. It’s 6am. That is less than hysterical.

    I’ve never tried the PB&J bar but I stare at it longingly everytime I’m in the TJs line. When they come out with a dark chocolate I will surely cave.

    Ooh I thought that they were violet Lindor balls for a second! Hmmm I used to like Lindor balls more but they’re too buttery for me now. Did I say that? And hehe you must tell us more about that phone call!

    Have you met my friend Carrie yet? Have you? Have you!?

    Dude! Congrats, that’s so awesome! 🙂 Also that pb&j chocolate bar looks wonderful.

    “You know what? Maybe. Yeah. Probably.” What an insightful slogan you’ve acquired for yourself. 😉

    I cracked up at your quips in that article. They go to all this trouble to introduce you as a *famous* blogger all the way from Australia and your assessment is essentially, “American food is totally weird! LOL!” Loved it.

    White chocolate and vanilla Lindt Balls? How did I not know of this!

    oh you are a star of eating weird American junk food – and now the whole world knows – well at least New Yorkers do. Well done!

    And these chocolate look interesting though not my favourite chocolate combinations – though ironically I have been experimenting with white chocolate in ice cream. I think I would be interested in the peanut butter bar but wouldn’t it be great with really tart fruity jam

    Quoted in the NYT and used to wrap up the article. Good on YOU! You are going places Hannah! Interesting article for someone who used to work in fast food as a student and it has no hold over her!

    Congrats on your new-found fame. How exciting to have a phone call from the New York Times. I would have felt very important. I love the look of the Trader Joe’s peanut butter and jelly bar. I would love some of that right about now. We’re away in a holiday house and I forgot to buy something sweet to enjoy after dinner – there’s nothing here. Only apples! I’m getting withdrawals xx

  12. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    As you know, I like truffles a lot more than you do, but these particular truffles don’t hold a lot of appeal. Given I’ve yet to experience ‘true’ white chocolate, the very concept of a white chocolate truffle conjures up an eating experience that is all butter and sugar. Thank goodness they included real vanilla beans at least 🙂 And the peanut butter chocolate sounds excellent!

    You’re practically famous, being quoted and all!
    So, when are they bringing TJs to Australia? I mean, seriously. They should.
