Detour Caramel Peanut: $2.49/Publix

detour_caramelpb (3)Subconsciously I reached for an orange-wrappered bar last Friday morning and I can only assume it was because a certain orange-hued man would officially be seated in the Oval Office later that day. I’m waiting for the punchline. Still waiting? I won’t go on a rant here, but something seems head-scratchingly wrong about a reality show host, beauty pageant judge, and business tycoon with no political experience becoming our president. After the inauguration that afternoon, I sincerely considered a personal detour from politics. But for the time being, I unwrapped the bright orange wrapper of a Detour Caramel Peanut bar only to be immensely disappointed in the bar therein. Orange packaging around a brown dookie log around a tasteless substance beneath. Something sounds familiar about that.

After eating, and then discarding, half of this “low sugar” bar, I felt like our country’s reached a new low. No sorry, I will detour this entry and return to the bland bar that I would not purchase again and hope that my daughters are still young enough that, in 4 years (fingers-crossed) this will all be a distant memory, a joke in history books (or well, I imagine wiki pages and e-books if we’re talking future school material that probably won’t be in physical book-books.) That’s a sad thought too – not having textbooks to highlight and doodle in. 1/5
