Sugar Rush

Today, we went to b.a. Sweetie in Brooklyn, and Friendly's and Sonic in Parma.

b.a. Sweetie is a dangerous store for a candy fiend. Fortunately, we aren't candy junkies, but it's a fun store for nostalgia, as well as finding limited edition candies.

You can find rock candy on a string by the ounce and Pixy Stix to Butterfinger Buzz. I've never heard of Butterfinger Buzz.

Caffeine, chocolate, and sugar *shudder*

We left with a bag o' booty -- 2 different flavors of rock candy on a string, a handful of lemon drops, and Reese's white chocolate peanut butter wafers.

Later in the evening, we stopped into Friendly's for a snack. We had not gone to Friendly's in ~5 years and talked about stopping in for the past couple of months.

CJ ordered a hot fudge sundae.

I ordered a fat-free raspberry swirl yogurt and pistachio ice cream sundae with pound cake sprinkled on top. It isn't gourmet ice cream, but it was a solid sundae that hit the spot on a muggy night. I'm sure it would hit the spot on a cold, rainy morning.

Friendly's is running a meal special, where you can get an entree, soda, and sundae for $9.99 or $11.99.

Bug wanted a more substantial nibble so he ordered the buffalo chicken strip dinner ($11.99). Well, they tasted like buffalo chicken strips. Surprise.

With the array of flavors, Bug ordered almost the same sundae with Reese's peanut butter cups. I couldn't distinguish between his black raspberry ice cream and my raspberry yogurt.

After we wrapped up Friendly's we drove over to Sonic, which is on the way home.

Sonic is still hopping one week after their grand opening and an hour (or two?) before closing. We waited ~15 minutes to get into the parking lot to order 2 drinks.
