I knew the person who sent the email.
I responded with "You want some candy little girl?"
I hit "reply"?
No, I hit "reply all"
Every Monsanto employee including all of the officers of the company.
Oy vey. That did not go over well.
I kept my job. It was the 80's. Not now.

Good thing only 1% of the world actually had e-mail then.

No Mike & Ike's? Holy sh*t, that is only one of two candies that I ever crave (the other is Nibs). Not sure what I'd do if I had one of those cravings hit and couldn't run up to Walgreens to put out the fire.

I would think M&M's aren't going to travel well between the airport and Playa.

Reading this thread made me go directly to my candy dish full of candy corn. At 8:30 in the MORNING, I'm eating candy corn.

Curse you, candy lovers of Playa!!

Help me out here, Sue. I'm not seeing it. And based on this post, I'm going to guess that I should be embarrassed.

The M&Ms go in carry on. Lemon Heads, fireballs, Mike and Ike (red, blue, green) can go in suitcase.

I saw where you listed Mike & Ike's as something you can't get there, and I was expressing my alarm and my sympathy for that fact ("No Mike & Ike's? Say it isn't so," that kinda thing).

This post just triggered a craving.
