I have heard of gorp, but didn't realize it was an acronym.
Thanks. Now my brain can take the rest of the day off

My guilty pleasure has always been chocolate...in nearly any form but, recently, I've been drawn (addicted) to the dark chocolate M&Ms. If I let myself I could eat a large bag every week.

I also enjoy chocolate paired with cherry or raspberry. Christmas is always fun because I can get the el-cheapo boxes of chocolate-covered cherries and I usually indulge in a couple of boxes then.

Also at Christmastime, Hershey makes a raspberry cordial "kiss." Yum!!!! I buy several bags and put some in the freezer for an, um, emergency.

Have you noticed that most of those pleasures (I refused to use the word guilty) are the ones we have to purchase and not make at home? I do stay out of the chips aisle at the store. I cannot walk past Wise potato chips. They always have burnt and some overcooked chips. Curled ones, broken ones, all sorts of ones. They just have so much flavor unlike Lays. Those are all the same boring chips.

For me with Lays, it's the salt, thin, crisp and salty!

I do make my own toffee though
