Really? The original ones? I just can't stomach them. It's all about Fig Newtons and Larabars for me...

Yes, the original ones. Vanilla Crisp is my favorite

I like the newer ones, too... (Ok, I don't like ALL of them... Don't like the chocolate ones (original), and there's one of the newer ones I don't like, don't remember the flavor.

i'm hoping its a shadow in that cute dimple between her nose and her upper lip...

and you guys stop it with the 'pomeranian' and 'eyes too far apart' and 'weirdly shaped features' and 'toothy' remarks...

you're talking about the woman i love....
