Dollar Makes You Holler – Cadbury Fruit and Nut


I know, I know. More chocolate. But this chocolate confection with internal delights brings back fond memories of my oldest brother. Growing up, the Cadbury Fruit & Nut bar was his favorite treat. We weren’t allowed to eat much candy when we were younger, so when he did get his hands on one of these, he was oh-so-careful with it. He would carefully peel back the foil wrapper and expose only one chocolate square at a time, which is how he ate it, to make it last longer. Then, he would carefully wrap the foil around the chocolate once again and try to hide it somewhere in the refrigerator so that his younger siblings wouldn’t eat it (although at the time, I was not a fan of fruit in my chocolate and wouldn’t have eaten it anyway. I was so foolish.) Of course, all the secrecy made us extra curious and we would stand in front of the refrigerator until either our mom yelled at us for keeping the fridge open or we could hear him coming, at which point we would hightail it out of there. These days, I willingly seek this candy out to consume it, and not just to annoy my oldest brother. Besides, how can you not like candy that has been approved by Her Majesty herself? Seriously, there’s a royal seal on it. That’s gotta be worth at least a dollar.

Found at the 99 Cent store, 2560 Notre Dame Boulevard, Chico, CA 95928
