Have you ever seen perfection? Allow me to show you.
I stopped by my local IFA store at lunch today to pick up a bag of Fall Blend fertilizer for my rather anemic-looking lawn. As if being guided from above, I happened to glance at the candy rack where I beheld this confectionary marvel. I have long been a fan of the Pearson’s Nut Roll — in fact, I consider myself to be somewhat of a nut roll connoisseur. I have gone through life thinking that the original Pearson’s Nut Roll was the ultimate combination of sugary, salty goodness — never to be outdone by the likes of PayDay, Mr. Goodbar or any *scoff* pecan log. Little did I suspect that the company to de-throne the Nut Roll would be the same company who created it.
Pearson’s, I tip my hat to you. You have truly outdone yourselves…with a simple layer of delicious milk chocolate. My only plaint is the two taunting words emblazoned within the golden ribbon: Limited Edition. Obviously this treat is not one to be taken for granted, and with a saddened heart I understand that the Chocolate Nut Roll will not be here forever. Fortunately for me, my IFA store has a large supply on hand and according to this site:
“The average shelf for a chocolate candy bar is anywhere up to six (6) months “
Food storage anyone?
