Get Smart-ies

Sometimes, when I am having a crazy day at work, this is what gets me through. I wouldn't say I have an addiction or anything. I like these because I am not a chocoholic. Chocolate makes me thirsty and plus, I hate the after-taste. These are tart enough that I never get tempted to eat too many either.

Plus, I can sort and categorize them while I am "on hold" waiting for lenders to pick up. So, see - good exercise for the brain too.
And just because I like to sort them by color, Left to right, with the flavors I hate on the left leading up to the favorite on the right; and just because I eat them left to right, because I swear they taste better that way, does not make me OCD in the LEAST bit... ;)

...and I do NOT need a 12-step program...

funny that this is your solution for a "crazy" day at work. hmmm? just kidding you're not crazy, but as you were describing why you liked them so much I thought, wow those really are a great treat for Emma. they are too tart to pig out and you get to organize too. Terrific!

I think its brilliant. Especially the built in quantity control mechanism.

i also sort and stack, but i don't line them up left to right. mine are just in haphazard piles. that's how i stack.

I too eat them in a color order of least to favorite. Then I eat them two at a time, one for each side of my mouth. What I hate is that there are only 15 per pack, so I have to eat 2 packs.

WAY 2 GO, EMMA!!!! Yes, I sort them, too. First by color. And then, so I have three of each color, then two of each color, and then one of each color... and then I eat them ALL at the SAME time...

I love those kinds of candy too!

Blue Castle said...

I love Smarties. I eat them by color too. I do that with M&Ms also. First, I have two or three of each color, then I whittle it down to 2 of ea color, then 1, etc... :)

I love ORANGE smarties :) You forgot to mention that you "loose" them :)

Vickie said...

Oh I can eat these for ever. The only thing that makes me stop is...the kids like them too and I have to share:)

I've never done it with smarties, but my M&Ms must be divided into piles with one of each color. Any stragglers must be be immrediatly eaten. Then I eat one pile at a time, in order: brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue.

I don't think you're crazy at all. I'll start worrying when you start crushing them and snorting them in lines from left to right.

I too am not a fan of chocolate. That is so funny that you sort and categorize them. I too do that when eating these.
Happy Wednesday!

Ronnica said...

That's awesome. I'd always get a pack of smarties when I went to the doctor...I want some now!

Paige said...

I treat M and Ms that way--line them up by color and eat them in the proper order.

Makes people crazy.

But I cannot help it
