I had never even heard of the Freshman 15...until they happened to me. For this I point the finger at three evil men, Ben, Jerry, and Heath; as in Ben & Jerry's Heath Bar Crunch ice cream. Regularly consuming a pint at 3am directly resulted in the expansion of my waistline. You'd think someone would have warned me. My good pal Little Caesar was strangely mum on the subject.
Anywho... this weeks TWD, Caramel Crunch Bars, felt so very familiar. A brown sugar shortbread crust, covered with a layer of milk chocolate and topped off with chopped Heath bar. I couldn't find the toffee bits so I bought mini bars and beat them into submission with a hammer. A little payback for those 15 pounds.
Luckily the older and wiser me knew well enough to keep the reunion brief. A little snack, then straight into the freezer only to be brought out and dispersed at my cousin's birthday party. Heath loves making new friends.
