Show me the way to the next date bar

In a rare explosion of human contact which lasted about 3 minutes, I received this as an Easter present from a fellow inmate 🙂

Which created an opportunity for some philosophical inquiries. I do have a bit of time on my hands you know.

Did the Easter Bunny hear me saying please please, I need a bar? It’s been tooooo loooong!! Here you go daughter, you’ve been so good. And while I’m at it, have a date too.

Does anyone even remember what these words could mean in our previous life? Around 100 BC*? Will all the bars I see in the near future be small and yellow and easily fit in my pocket?

More importantly, are you getting any bars behind your respective bars?

  1. Date bars look like Fig Newtons. I loved them while I was growing up in Boston. They’re much smaller, but the fig filling is inside a soft cake, just like date bars. I could eat a whole package at one sitting, and would, if my mother didn’t take it out of my hands!


    1. 🙂 What a lovely memory! Thanks for sharing. I’ll enjoy my bar much more now- I’m still keeping it in the fridge for now because it makes me think I have my own personal bar at hand:)


  2. Bars, no. But we have a delightful shop in the UK called Hotel Chocolat…limited range available over Easter for delivery (how we suffer in the first world…) but we managed – delicious!
