Dear Whatchamacallit,

Dear Whatchamacallit,

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.

Love,
Anna

*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.

You need to sneak one of these to the guy who writes the vending machine blog. And I totally remember that jingle! Freaky!

Yes, I was totally right about how it went! {video}

BLOG CROSSOVER

Also, did my link in the post not work?? Because I worked SUPER HARD to find that commercial. ("working super hard" = googling for literally 1 second)

Oh, oops. I didn't notice that you linked it!

It's used to be every kid (or everyone too) favorite chocolate. Glad that they are back again. Now, you will smile every time you look at vending machine.

Looks delicious... This chocolate is hard to find nowadays, isn't it?? After reading this post, I think I will try to look for it once again. Hope I can find it...:)
