I was never a big candy person as a child strangely enough. That changed one evening at dinner when I wouldn't eat, yep, you got it, asparagus. Ack! I was about 9 years old and my mom, lucky for me, wasn't too harsh in making us eat stuff we didn't want. Also, not one to be big on cooking dessert after "slaving over a hot stove", my mom would usually let us roam the cabinet or refrigerator for what ever would rot our teeth.
That evening after dinner she was enjoying her favorite candy, a Mallo Cup. My mom was crazy over Mallo Cups, but I always turned my head. That night she was kind of joking around with me and told me that she would make me eat an entire serving of asparagus if I didn't try just one teeny-tiny bite of her ooey-gooey Mallo Cup.
What is a 9 year old to choose? Thinking she may really do it, I did give in. It's been 12 years since I was "forced" to try that Mallo Cup and I have been absolutely HOOKED on them ever since. It's my favorite things in one now, chocolate, coconut and marshmallow whip. Yummmm! Unfortunately, my mom decided she would get my one year-old son hooked also. As soon as he sees the yellow wrapper and red logo he knows what it is and comes running like a begging puppy. I'm lucky to get two bites of it! Little did my mom know, that she would start a new family tradition. ~ Jennifer from South Carolina
