@Jamileigh17 I feel your pain. But not this time, since I’m hated by the glutens instead. I’ll gobble these up on your behalf and you can have all of the peanutless gluteny shit they usually sell. Or something like that.
Perfect! I was just complaining to my husband earlier about the price of the full-sized bars when I get them at the vending machine at work. They help me not become a hangry Karen mid-shift. Now I can fill my pockets with these lil guys.
I probably have 150 full-size bars of Kind and various other brands in my freezer. I can’t seem to resist buying them every time Amazon has them for three bucks. I am apparently capable of buying them a lot faster than I am eating them. This also holds true for chocolate and gum.
Only 3-4g sugar out of 5-7g net carbs is pretty darn low for a sweet snack without any sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners. I’ve been doing the “lazy dirty keto” thing and getting the full-size version of these (or the Trader Joe’s equivalent, which I’m pretty sure Kind makes for them anyway) as a tide-over/late-night snack, suits me fine as a lower-carb candybar alternative.
I definitely wouldn’t have counted had I not seen this comment.
Godsdamnit, man. Even having said below that I wouldn’t count, I found myself in a moment of weakness and just had to know. We’ve been munching on these little guys for a few days (not like crazy, though, because both of us are in the process of dental work that makes the nuttiness temporarily problematic), so I can’t be 100% sure, but our current count is around 123. I’m pretty sure we didn’t eat 27 that quickly, maybe 10 at the most.
I’m still glad we made the purchase, but it’s a little disappointing and slightly disconcerting that the fill is random. What gives, meh?
I mostly blame y’all though. I might have been blissfully ignorant.
@jeffisbiking I also got 123 including the definitely less than, but counting 10, that I’ve eaten before taking inventory. While I was aware that there would be a possibility of missing a couple of bars with the way it was all dumped in the box, I must admit I was not expecting that many to be missing. That’s about 18% loss and there’s been no one in the house for the 2 days since these were delivered, so it isn’t a matter of unaccounted for shrinkage, unless the mice have been hoarding.
@cichlid@jeffisbiking@malekadair@Thumperchick I fully support the right of others to do so, and partly chimed in to be supportive in the first place (well, because I was dismissive, and then overcome with curiosity). But for all of my complaining, I’m fine and it kinda seems wasteful and not worth anyone’s trouble (ha, including mine). And you know (well, maybe you don’t; someone surely does) that I will absolutely seek remedy when I feel cheated. Y’all have always done good by me. I appreciate your saying something and know that you’d make it right.
The thing I’m most curious about is how it happened: did they come this way from the source (and was that Kind or some outlet)? did y’all box 'em? how exactly did whoever fuck it up? But it’s an idle sort of curiosity. I’m an idle sort of guy, notwithstanding all of this typing, which, to be honest, gets to be a bit much, but, damnit, I always have things to say.
Nah, I didn’t count, and I think I’ll be okay. But what the fuck is up with everything arriving so quickly lately? Mine were in my grubby hands Monday. It used to be something would show up and I’d have forgotten I ordered it. This new shipping isn’t very “meh” at all.
/giphy just sayin’
And I wasn’t for absolutely sure, but these are my favorite Kind flavor.
@joelmw I would imagine they didn’t want them to come past the expiration date. You know. Refunds. Well and what this crowd might do to meh with them if they are all stale and bricked. The ancient community action of the mail in “toilet papering” of meh was recently mentioned and this is a creative, in a very twisted way, group.
