  Candy is a What?
I have been buying eight 2 ounce bags of M&M's (plain) and eight Hershey's bar w/Almonds.

Hershey's is running a promotion with eBay called "WrapperCash." I am devouring around eight of these bars every two weeks. I have no access to hersheys.com, and I was getting ready to send the wrappers out to my editor so he can use the 'cash' I am unable to benefit from. I suppose I could start posting the secret codes on the blog. One of two things would happen. If each code is truly unique, then it would be a race to see which reader would be able to use the code first. If the codes are not locked out after each use, than maybe many of you loyal readers would benefit from the 'WrapperCash.'

Well the main reason I started typing this post is that while I was reading the fine print on the inside of the wrapper I noticed the following disclaimer:

"Candy is a treat. Please consume in moderation."

Yes folks, on the inside of the wrapper, which you would certainly only see after you have purchased (and eaten?) the product you are told that candy is a treat. Talk about two somewhat ambiguous statements. Is there now going to be a FDA official definition of "treat?" And how does one define moderation?

Besides, Hershey's is not candy, it is chocolate an entirely different kettle of fish as far as any chocoholic will attest to. Then again, the wrapper just says that "Candy is a treat." It does not actually say that the thing contained in the wrapper is candy, now does it? See I have been reading and learning about the law and one has to always look for the loopholes. Of course when it comes to the legal side of my existence, maybe that is why I keep losing in the courts.

If you can read this paragraph, the editor has agreed to post the cash numbers for the three wrappers I sent him. If you are reading this but the numbers seem to be missing, well as I said, first come, first served and being the editor of this blog has to have at least one perk.

The numbers are:


There you have it, or maybe not. The three secret codes. Go for it.
