OH MY GOD, I THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD!!!
I'm really happy to see you, Whatchamacallit. Wikipedia says you were introduced in 1978, but I have a specific memory of being introduced to you at some point in my childhood, which I suspect was spurred by the 1987 reformulation with added caramel, as well as the 1989 commercial with a song that was sort of like a chocolate-inspired hallucination. I believe you were available in the ice rink where I took skating lessons* and were a delicious treat after I inevitably fell down. Then I lost track of you somehow...
And now you are in the vending machine at work. Awesome. Let's reconnect, Whatchamacallit.
*you might think I'm fancy for this, but trust me, I ain't. In retrospect, I think I was just really into the outfits.
