Homemade Almond Joy's Got Nuts; Store Bought Ones, Not So Much Anymore...

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

i remember reading an article a few months ago about the average number of nuts, most notably almonds, that were actually found in almond joy candy bars. apparently there is some sort of controversy about using the word "nuts" in plural form when talking about an almond joy candy bar, because some stupid statistical number, like 96%, of the almond joy bars that they tested had one or less "nuts" in them; therefore denoting false advertising. do i need to say it? yes, indeed, someone has waaay too much time on their hands. and to top it off, i'm pretty sure that no one in the world, after hearing that news, was like "oooh shit, you got those almond joy f#ckers! zing!"

well, maybe cheryl burr was listening, because she came up with this bangin' recipe for better than almond joy, almond joy-esque brownie bars. (i must note, although eternally delicious, recipes like this one are exactly why i hate baking. they are incredibly involved. i'd much rather eat them than make them, but they really are worth the effort if you are up for it.)
