(But it wasn't me, Officer!)
Yeah, at least he has good taste.
I love RPBCs too, but damn!
If this was a sophisticated place like NYC, they would pass a law against stealing sugary/fatty foods.
I have an alibi.
In one month scour all dentists records for one case of severe tooth decay. That’s yer feller.
Two words: Stun Gun.
That’s hilarious;) Was checking out my RPB cups and the gal at the register admitted she was also addicted. She puts hers in the freezer - I prefer the fridge.
We were convinced that Hershey is adding something to the batches.
I have moved on to Butterfingers - my doctor is not happy.
This is a guy with a serious case of the munchies.
I'm sure they are. They are addictive!
I prefer the fridge also.
Hope the butterfingers work out for you!
Big Media is just looking for one more weird food robbery to report now, after this morning’s 92-pound mayo heist Down Under.
I suspect he’s in cahoots with yesterday’s Aussie mayonnaise robbers. Sumpin’s up!
In by 53 seconds. :)
They’re using the street value of the Reece’s Cups. Wholesale that would only be about $150.
A crime of passion, no doubt.
It’s highly suspicious, I dare to say. Seriously for once.
People have been discovering new ways to get high, like the known case of cough syrup used to manufacture meth. Or the equally well known psychedelic concoction of apple cider vinegar, grey poupon and sour creme.
This could be another of those newly discovered secrets.
