Given what was posted today in The Cafe, I pray Nestle doesn't sell out. Losing Butterfinger's would create a massive blackhole in my life.

It really does make you wonder what the reasoning is for considering such a move.

I got me a box of Raisinets.

I would hate for Nestle to stop making them.

Butterfinger is probably my favorite product of theirs. It would be a shame if they stopped making them.

A personal story you guys might find interesting.

In 1998 I had a friend who worked at the local Safeway. I was grocery shopping one day while my friend was on duty restocking the candy aisle. 

I picked up a Butterfinger when my friend said, "don't buy that one - buy the ones that just arrived from the distributor.". He said the taste and texture of a Butterfinger changes the older it gets.

He was absolutely correct, because the fat content of a Butterfinger is so high it's one of those candy bars that actually has a shorter shelf life than the typical chocolate candy.  I bought a new bar and an old bar together to try a taste test and the difference was stunning.

My tip of the day, buy candy bars where customer traffic is high and the bars don't hang around too long.

So not only do they get stale/crunchier, but the taste actually changes? Interesting.

When I eat a Toll House cookie, it's like I got a taste of Heaven.

Most candy bars have a reasonable shelf life but some of my favorites have other ingredients that I pay attention to. Like peanuts. Peanuts have a high fat ratio and when used whole in candy bars the flavor goes "off" in time. Ground into peanut butter and the shelf life gets even shorter.

I've never had a bad Reese's' Peanut Butter Cup because they never hang around stores long enough to go bad.  I trashed a Mr. Goodbar with awful, bitter peanuts, a sign that the nuts were rancid.

One of the teachers at the office where I work brought out a "Party-Sized" bag of M&M's that she said was at least 2 years old! While the candy shell and the chocolate were fine the peanuts were very bitter - making the candy impossible to eat.

Here's a retro commercial for Nestle Quik that I stumbled upon.
