Celebrations?

I'd like to know what, exactly, it is that I am to be celebrating AND if the size of of these treats is an indicator... just how long am I supposed to celebrate?

I don't know if these are such a good idea for our society.

well jenn, i polled kool & the gang on this one, and they are supposed to be getting back to me. until then, i think that the intention of this tasty little treat is to be stored in that really little "pocket in a pocket" that most jeans have in front. that way, you always have it with you, and honestly, what else is going to fit in there. let's say you are driving and you get all green lights, pull out your little candy and celebrate. or you are getting gas and you stop exactly on $25.00 and don't go over to $25.01, pull out your little candy and celebrate. or even better, you ran out of "celebrations" candy [except for the one in your little pocket of course], but you find them on sale at the store, pull out your little candy and celebrate. yeah. i think these options will work. if you ate them on martin luther king day, you could celebrate that, well, until the bag ran out...but i don't think you ate them that day. save them for arbor day - now that is something to look forward to...

I have found that the "pocket in a pocket" works well for holding guitar picks

Krista! Welcome!

More appropriate would be "Celebrations" that are tiny little bottles of champagne. Like, really tiny.

One eighth of a Milky Way candy bar does not say "celebration" to me.

One eighth of a bottle of champagne, say after you've hit three green lights in a row, that says to me "celebrate".

And now, after looking at the word celebrate and enjoying too many Celebration champagnes, the word "celebrate" has begun to look quite strange to me.

I think we must keep in mind that when chocolate is kept in such warm conditions it tends to melt. When you go for the one eigth of a milkyway in your pocket with in a pocket you're probably going to find something to weep about, unless you like hot chocolate, which could be a blessing in disguise. Now I think that would work better with a hard candy, but let's face it, that hard candy is going to get a little warm and sticky. It's not gonna be the most pleasant experience that is worthy of celebration. What I think you need to do is buy a relatively small styrofoam cooler with a blue nylon fiber strap. Keep in mind, this could double as a purse for your other belongings. You can also keep those little bottles of champagne to wash down those other little celebrations. Keepin the party snacks cool and in appropriate consumption temperature is important if you want to celebrate good times...ca'mon.

I just came up with a good slogan for Celebrations candy boxes.

"Everything in moderation"

I would like you all to know that in the time it took you to determine how to correctly store your "celebration" snacks, i have inhaled 3 boxes

Well, it would be a great idea to keep a box of Celebration Candy in the glove compartment of your car for any road trips in Canada during the winter time. If you run off the road due to ice, snow storms, or some idiot cutting you off because he's talking on his cell phone, you'll have a box of tasty treats to enjoy while waiting for a tow-truck to arrive. (or a good dog sled team if you're way up North!) I will admit though, I've never seen or heard of a box of Celebration candy before though...Thanks for sharing, and even with a photo. That makes it so much more real, you know? It's like I can smell the candy, and feel the box in my hands, just by looking at the picture you displayed. Ah, once again, hats off to modern technology!!

Gotta run, my dog-sled team needs to practice up for the big race this weekend!! If I win, they'll install a real indoor bathroom for me in our igloo, first of it's kind here in Canada!! It would be a real honor, so we better try to win. Chow!!

bethany, i like your thinking on the "celebrations" in the glove box [who among us actually keeps gloves in there?] idea. that opens you up to a plethora of new options. invited to a dinner party and forgot to bring a dish - no worries - you have candy in your glove box. "celebrations" becomes an instant dessert tray. or also, if you run out of gas in a remote wooded environment, you can feed "celebrations" to the bears to keep them from eating you. [we all know that bears - like dogs - are not supposed to have chocolate. therefore, they will become sick and leave you alone]. and not being eaten, that my fried is a celebration in and of itself to last a whole life long.

Smuggle it into a Celebration Cinema for even more fun.
