All That Glitters Is Not Gold

A flash of yellow gleam caught my eyes this afternoon while I was in the supermarket. Ah hah ! Gold Coin chocolates !  Donkey years have trotted by since I last saw them – let alone ate a piece.

These were my childhood favorites.  I remember they were somewhat firm and chewy, and full of cocoa fragrance and creamy sweetness.  (No doubt they contributed sacrificially  to my early dental degradation).

Not wanting to pass up this golden opportunity, I bought a small pack of 20 pieces.  The photo shows 19 – well, the 20th piece went into my mouth for qualitative biochemical assay.  Haiz, any expectation of a resurrection of the old ecstasy was quickly smothered — all that glitter notwithstanding.   It tasted rather bland.   Maybe my ancient taste buds are not working today.
