Temptation Looms In The Shadows
And not even the shadows really. It’s smack dab in front of me.
And it’s not even the healthy version of popcorn: it’s popcorn that’s deliciously good, out of this world, can’t get enough of it, the melt in your mouth kind of popcorn.
It’s not chocolate covered popcorn either.
The first ingredient on the label isn’t even popcorn: it’s corn syrup.
And it’s calling my name.
I don’t dare open a can. I don’t dare get a whiff. For if I do, and if I was to start eating this stuff, I wouldn’t be able to stop.
Oh no. I would find myself diving into a can – no several cans – of this stuff, with no thought whatsoever of dieting. I would simply dive in and become one with the popcorn.
It’s caramel popcorn. With Peanuts. It has lots of fat and lots of calories. My son is selling it.
I want it.
