And Now...

...There's this item:

Mallo Cups and Smoothies won't be rolling off the Boyer Candy Co.'s production lines for a few days because of a machine fire at the plant in central Pennsylvania.

Plant supervisor Gary Himes said a coconut-roasting machine caught fire about 12:25 a.m. today. The fire was quickly brought under control and nobody was hurt as seven employees got out of the plant safely.
So the obvious question is this: People actually eat Mallo Cups?

I always assumed that they were specifically designed to be picked up by nearsighted old people hours before Halloween and mistakenly given to children as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and then later thrown away.

Mallo cups are incredibly disappointing confectionaries, which can only be improved by industrial fire.

Boo to you!
Hooray to Mallo Cups!

I stand by my antipathy towards Mallo Cups.

And Necco wafers. Fucking Necco wafers.

EdHeath said...

Um, love Necco Wafers.

Hate Mallo Cups.

Hate Heath bars, too. Ironic, isn't it?

All this talk of candy has basically forced me to go buy some Swedish Fish.

Sherry said...

oh for some m&ms right now!

O said...

I should write about candy more often.

I hate Bit o' Honey too. Sure they tasted good, but then they sneak around and try to rip out your molars.

Daniel said...

Double Boo to you!
Double Hooray for Bit o' Honey!

I LOVE MALLO CUPS - and by the way I hear that they are on the dessert menu for the G20 opening night dinner under "Local treats" - just thought you might want to know

Necco wafers are the epitome of nastiness.

Don't you go hatin' on Mallo Cups. They're vastly superior to the waxy chocolate shit produced by that company 3 and a half hours to the east.
