What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

Hershey's Take 5 Candy Bars

I am a BzzzAgent and they recently sent me a box of Hershey's Take 5 Candy Bars. I'm supposed to eat one and pass the rest out. Which, of course, I will do. But, since I can't GIVE each of you a candy bar - I wanted to urge you to try one if you haven't. They have a nice salty pretzel inside instead of nougat or a cookie. I like a like a little saltiness with my sweetness when I have a treat anyway. They are really good! If you have tried them, leave a comment so I can report it in my Bzz Campaign.

  1. I've loved Take 5 bars since they first came out! I love the crunchiness the pretzel gives the bar--I love the contrast in textures. Also I like the little bit of saltiness with the sweet!

  3. Hey Shara,
    I just enrolled in Bzzagent. Looks like fun. Just spent time doing polls,etc. to earn points. How long did it take before a product opportunity came about for you?

    I tried these candy pretzels when they first came out and they are easily one of my top favorite three candybars.
