Picky Bars Hazelnut Mocha Madness: $2.49/Whole Foods

picky_mocha-3Daylights’ Savings is still messing with my body clock so I’ve been awake since the ungodly hour of 4 a.m. A Picky Smooth Caffeinator Hazelnut Mocha Madness bar, alongside a cup of coffee is helping considerably but I feel like I’ll need a drink of a more Irish quality in a few hours after I get through with my right as an American to vote. Am I picky because I don’t want to vote for any of the candidates? Would I rather be in Ireland where folks are probably scratching their heads and chuckling at Americans right now, wondering how in the hell we’ve ended up with the candidates that we did? This Picky bar tastes good but needs more chocolate bites mixed into its Larabar-like texture. And speaking of chocolate bites, if I could be voting on a new color of M&M right now, I’d also rather be doing that. Over breakfast this morning I reminded Tom about the old tan M&M (he didn’t remember this) and how there was this huge dopey candy campaign to vote on the new candy shell color (blue won.) If anything, Trump is the orange M&M on the ballot, Jill’s green, Hillary is blue (though some Facebook people would argue that she’s orange since she’s destined for an orange prison jumpsuit /sigh) and Gary is yellow, I suppose. I’m boycotting all electronics and social media this evening because I am over the ugly Facebook political arguments entirely. Whatever happens in this election, our country is going to be led by a joker. So as I depart for my county’s Baptist church where I’ll vote (alongside my two daughters who will probably be bored out of their minds but whose schools are closed today), I remind myself that with some choices, it’s OKAY to be picky, especially when it comes to the flavor of bar you’re eating or the person who will be leading you and your country. Eyes-open, caffeine in the bar is working. At least that mission is accomplished. 4/5
