Shopping Sunday


HAS ANYBODY SEEN THIS CAN?

Well, I managed to make some good use of my boredom this weekend. I mean, REAL, QUALITY, GOAL-WORTHY time. It's amazing what one can do when one has exhausted an entire day's worth of LMN originals. So, when I say 'this weekend' I mean today. I decided that I needed to go on the search for Cadbury Drinking Chocolate. I CAN'T FIND IT ANYWHERE!! Have you ever had it? Well, if you HAVE had it, then you can understand my dedication to its whereabouts...

...Which took me straight to The Grove (outdoor shopping HEAVEN)(Seriously, I hope I can die and LIVE there) The problem? it was a beautiful crispy outdoorsy kind of day. I was alone. Left to my own devices. My 'sponsor' (the one friend who keeps me off the benders...usually) is on vacation.

It didn't go well. No one had the Cadbury.

BUT I did manage to find, you know, bars of soap, cute paper notepads, cute stationary (for all those LETTERS I mail in the old fashioned mail) Candles (buy one get one FREE! who can resist? WHO?!) Bigelow Lip gloss (Apple cider! Vanilla Eggnog! And I forget the last flavor....but it was BUY 2 GET 1 FREEEEEEEE! WHEEEEEE!)

Well, and by THEN, I was on a true bender of things you absolutely never need (except the candles)(and the lip gloss..cuz one ALWAYS needs that)(well, and you never know when you'll need a good $8 bar of soap!...what? it's from FRANCE)

So naturally, I headed to Target, and the only reason I'm even mentioning the Devil's Lair, is because they have THE BEST DEAL. And, being the altruistic yogi that I am, I needed to share the info with you. Ready?

K. Fiber One bars are on sale for $2.33. Big deal? not so much. BUT! If you buy 4 boxes, you get a $5 Target gift card! Now let me do that math for you...this all comes out to $1 per box! Crazy, right!? Now, I've never even HAD a fiber One bar, but so what? S.A.L.E.

I still need to find that Drinking Chocolate. Guess I'll have to go out again tomorrow!

{we'll get back to our regularly scheduled GrammyBitch Sundays next week. I'm just to old to be old tonight}

I'm glad you're staying regular. I think some Activia would be a nice compliment to Fiber One.

I have never heard of this magical Cadbury drinking chocolate that you speak of.
Now I must have some!

And today I'm feeling old enough for both of us.

I have seen that chocolate. I am pretty sure they have it in my local supermarket. I will check the next time I am there and I will grab you a can (and one for me because, i have to make sure that it's fit for drinking)

NIKOL said...

I have never had Cadbury Drinking Chocolate, but I have had something similar made by Bellagio. I will definitely look for it. Do you really go out and look for stuff in stores? Why not just find it online? It would save you time that could otherwise be spent watching Lifetime Movies on your couch!

Mayhem and Moxie said...

I found this post more than somewhat disturbing. I think we should plan to talk on the phone so that we may discuss in detail.

Are you trying to tell me that it is possible to grow tired of a day of LMN original movies?

I am going to go out on a limb here and disagree. :)

Oh, and that drinking chocolate is pretty cool too.

I tried fiber one and never left the bathroom. Oops TMI! Let me know when you find that drinking chocolate. I bet it's divine.

Kris said...

How did I not know about this Cadbury stuff? I think I'll be adding it to my shopping list!

Counselormama said...

That Cadbury Chocolate looks so good. I want to go to that shopping center you are talking about, it sounds heavenly!

peewee said...

I COULD find it online, but you see, I wanted it YESTERDAY. IMMEDIATELY.

Grand Pooba said...

What? What's this drinking chocolate you speek of and why haven't I heard of it? Is this the same thing as ketchup chips that are only available in canada and the east coast?

rychelle said...

this post makes me really miss you. and the grove. and cadbury drinking chocolate, which i've never even had before!

Lady of Perpetual Chaos said...

That Chocolate looks really fabulous. When you do find it, will you send me some? Since I'm your 200th favorite stalker and all.

Also, next time I come to LA you have to tell me how to get to that market. I have family there and have been wanting to go visit again....maybe someday...

rychelle said...

i can not find those new bigelow flavors on the internets anywhere :(

go shopping again, and then send them to ME! :)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Yes! I need to plan a trip to Cali and shop for stuff with you. You totally have my style of shopping. My husband says that if literal sh@% was on sale, I'd buy it.

Jaye said...

I have never heard of that liquid gold either. It sounds like something I need to be searching for.

btw, I feed my kids Fiber One bars all the time. They aren't too bad - better than Metamucil.

peewee said...

CORRECTION: They're Kellogg's Fiber PLUS...Fiber One's Knock-off.

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB said...

fiber one bars are delish and one of my favorite binge foods which does not bode well with my lower intestine

I Wonder Wye said...

Your post has me jonesing for a chocolate iced cupcake! Came by from visiting 'crib' to tell you I have a real ghost story...

Wenbren Explains It All said...

Go to Simply Australia, that's where I get my groceries that I can't find here. I'm a big fan of the Australian coffee Moccona Mystique and their biscuits! I see a lot of Cadbury items....

Debbie said...

It makes me happy to think of you loading up on the fiber to get those Target cards:)

Eve said...

YOU bought candles and lip gloss? Shocking! Guess it's that time of the year when you stock up the "store."
