Oh, right, that's why I don't buy candy very often
The new Safeway (or rather, the Safeway that is now closest to us) has a little stand where you can buy Jelly Belly jelly beans in many different flavors. I got about 3/4 pound today.

I have... most of that... left.

I'm'a go get some water, and maybe hide these somewhere. Oogh.

Jelly beans.. I am SUCH a sucker for those. especially when they are soft.

Do you think the safeway at San Antonio, is closer then the one on shoreline? I think I still think the shoreline one is the closest.

Side note: Got the apartment. Just spent the day with the landlord picking out new tile, and bathroom fixtures. :) Not replacing the tub though.

Hm. Actually, checking Google maps, it looks like the Shoreline one is still a bit closer. The Safeway I went to today, then. :)

Congratulations on the new place! We have emptied three more boxes for you today.

Its a really small difference, I go to both, but it usually depends if I want to pick anything up from Trader Joes or Whole Foods... or the gamestop.

On the other hand, there is a hill between you and the Shoreline Safeway, and not one between you and the San Antonio one. I am not sure how that affects the cycling-effort measure of distance, though.

Me neither; I actually drove this trip, because I was also picking up something largish at Target.

Oh, but they're sooooooo... tiny...

Just one can't hurt...

or two...

Exactly. And with Jelly Bellys, you've also got the must-try-all-possible-combinations effect.

Next time, I am serving myself a little dish and putting the bag away. Infinite jelly beans is not a good serving size!

Probably very wise. I fall into the "well, I'm only having one".."or maybe just one more..." trap. Because it's just one at a time, it never seems that bad.
Until I feel sick from too much sugar, or I'm bouncing off the walls!

I can now report that the small-dish method of selecting a serving size while I can see how big it is works quite well. And makes me feel all elegant, with my little glass dish of dessert.

Chuckle. I sympathize with (and envy) you :-).

Every now and again, I run across a store that has a lovely large variety of Jelly Bellys and I have a hard time not getting a huge number of them. ("Oh, I have to get some root beer! Oh! They have the chocolate pudding flavor! And....")

Fortunately, I have strong favorites among the flavors, so I only got four (cinnamon, green apple, cherry, and watermelon). Although if they'd had chocolate pudding I'd probably have gotten some of that too.
