Isn't It Ironic
So, I broke down and busted open one of those yummy rice candy boxes. Relax, there are only four pieces in each box.
But proof that things were better when we were kids - although they still have the melt-away inner rice paper wrapping, they feel the need to EXPLAIN it to you on the box. That was part of the beauty - watching some neophyte attempt to peel off said inner wrapper. Good times.
And the outer wrapper was something akin to wax paper - you know, like good, old-fashioned tootsie rolls. Now, they have some repugnant cellophaney outer wrapper. Like the kind that wraps the pre-made cheap baskets you can get for $15 at Costco. Blech.
Worst of all, they used to have TOYS inside. Little tiny plastic cars or dolls or some other ONE INCH TOY. How cool is that? Now, they have stickers. Or, in this case temporary tattoos (WeeMonkeyGirl doesn't like 'em, and I hardly need 'em!).
This is what I got (minus the bird, which would have made it cool)
