My all time favorite candy is the peanut butter meltaway. I try not to eat them very often because I am allergic to peanuts, but since the allergy is not a sever one yet I do indulge every once in a while.

Way back in the 80’s I used to love Gardner’s Candies PB Meltaway. They made a bar that was shorter and wider than half a Twix bar that was great. Then for years I could no longer find them. That’s where the Internet comes in handy, I found them online and ordered some, while they were no longer the bar I remembered, they were still good. Before I found the Gardner’s again all I had was the 1 — 1 square peanut butter meltaways from Asher’s Chocolates. While good they are just too small. They have too much chocolate and not enough peanut butter. But then there is the Asher’s peanut butter meltaway Easter eggs. These are good! Loads of creamy, smooth peanut butter covered it in their delicious chocolate. Other companies just don’t quite understand the meaning of the word meltaway. Asher’s gets it right.

Gertrude Hawk’s also makes a PB meltaway Easter egg that I had for the first time the other day. I have to say it really can’t hold a candle to the Asher’s egg. Neither the chocolate nor the peanut butter are as smooth and creamy as Asher’s. Shame they are only available around Easter.

So of the three peanut butter meltaway candies Asher’s wins first place, followed by Gardner’s and Gertrude Hawks Comes in last. Don’t take my word for it though try them for yourself.

Turn signals, know what they are? Seems most people on the road these days have forgotten. Just a little reminder folks the turn signal is the lever on the left-hand side of your steering wheel that moves up and down. It turns on the flashing lights on either side of the car.

Lights that are to be used to signal other drivers of your intent to make a turn, change lanes or even merge, I believe you were instructed on how to use them when learning how to drive, but some where along the way apparently the world forgot how to use them.

The worst offenders are the people who need to warn us the most. I swear I am witness to at least five or six aggressive drivers weaving in and out of traffic, crossing over three lines lanes, or abruptly turning all without a turn signal. Maybe these people should all be given warning signs for their cars so we know what to expect. I am sure there is a store out there somewhere with an Aggressive Driver On Board sign.

Nothing like getting cut off by a jerk that doesn’t use his turn signal. A little heads up that you want my spot on the roadway would be nice.

I was cut off today by a Gertrude Hawk’s chocolate truck, not only are their drivers sucky so are their chocolates.

Okay, that is a little harsh. Their Chocolates are fine, but when you compare them to Asher’s Chocolates Asher’s wins hands down.
