Public Service Announcement

Do not buy this. If you buy this you will eat the whole bag during the ride home from the grocery store. Even if you tell yourself you are just testing one bite to see if it’s any good. By the time you spend 15 minutes shoveling it by the handful into your mouth, it […]

Well that didn’t turn out as planned…
