Wow!  I got RIPPED OFF or PWNED*, as the Bonehead Brothers would say.

I like to try new things.......well not really.
I like to try new products in the grocery store.
Remember the Kaboom?

Yesterday, I saw something that caught my eye -

It caught my eye because it said, "The sparkliest hearts in the universe."
I love those Valentine conversation hearts.
I love sparkle and glitter.

Now, I'm not totally stupid.
I did notice that this bag was opaque and I really wanted to SEE the sparkly hearts before buying them.
The manufacturer knew this.
I spent the $2.49.


Do these look sparkly?
Do these look glittery?
Do these look divaish?

Yeah, they taste good.
The flavors are as advertised: Blue Raspberry, Sour Apple, Watermelo, Extreme Tangerine...

They taste really good.
Oh AND - you can't even read the hip sayings that they are supposed to have on them.
No ....Rock Star, BFF, Diva!
How are we supposed to have a conversation with these conversation hearts?

I am sorely disappointed!  My Valentine's is nearly ruined!
Don't buy these!  Buy the Brach's conversation hearts at $1 a bag
Don't get PWND!

*PWNED or PONED - owned spelled incorrectly, originally used in playing video games, as in, "Dude, you should have used your rocket launder.  That guy came out of nowhere and PWND you."  But now used anytime you get your behind handed to you, as in , "That Calc final pwned me." Or "Yeah, I spent $2.49 for sparkly hearts and I got nothing!  I got pwned by the Sweetheart company."

pwnd or pwned. Both appropriate. Yeah you did get pwned by the glitter! I would file a formal complaint.

valerie said...

It looks like you got pwnd into buying all of the defective, I mean "glittery," Sweethearts.

I highly recommend the little sparkly doughnuts at Starbucks. They're delicious! They're sparkly! They're little so you can eat 4 of them! You could meet some of your daily sparkle needs as well as your daily doughnut needs (but they don't have maple - sorry).

Wait sparkly donuts at Starbucks???
I was there today. There was no mention of this yumminess in the drive through line!

Anyway, I was going to say I learned this week you can use those hearts as chalk. Yep chalk.

Wow - those really were a letdown. Before I finished reading I sound outloud "you can't even read them!"

Personally I like the sweettart ones and not the chalky ones, but those flavors sound pretty yummy!

Where were you when I bought my Twilight sparkly forbidden fruits candy hearts?? I should've known about PWNED way back when and saved myself the dissapointment. Besides I like it better when You write the converstions on the hearts yourself. It's more entertaining that way!

Mama Badger said...

razzle dazzle price with out the shimmy and shine? that's krappe. You'd at least think they'd throw on some edible glitter.

Margaret said...

Good to know. I am not going to waste my money on them.

Missty said...

Dang it! I hate when I get pwned!

And I will be on the look out for the good hearts! I did buy Reese's peanutbutter hearts and York peppermint patty hearts at Target today - yum!

I'm trying to stay out of the candy aisle anyway. (How sad is that?)
