The Chocolate Covered Peanuts Story
There's a funny story in my family about chocolate covered peanuts. My husband and stepson love this story and have made me and my mom tell it several times. Greg thought you might like to hear it. WARNING - it's a little gross.
This takes place about 10 years ago when my aunt was living with my Grandma and helping her out. My grandmother had a notorious sweet tooth. One day while my aunt was out, my grandmother found some chocolate covered peanuts. She hated peanuts but liked chocolate. She proceeded to eat the chocolate around them but spit back out the peanuts into a bowl. She then went to bed.
My aunt comes home later that night. The next morning my grandmother gets up and went over to find the bowl of peanuts to throw away and notices they were all gone. My grandma asks my aunt - what happened to those nuts I was going to throw away? I had eaten the chocolate off of them. My aunt about had a heart attack as she said SHE ATE THEM! She had thought they were regular peanuts that tasted stale. Needless to say she was very upset with my grandmother.....especially later when my grandmother called all of us in the family to tell us what happened.... ha,ha! Anyways, whenever our family sees chocolate covered peanuts - it sends us into hysterical fits of laughter. I'm thinking about buying some Goobers for my aunt this Christmas....what do you think?!
