Subject:        Rosencrunch & Guildenpop

I received my latest Trader Joe's flyer (for those who don't know, TJ's
is a sort of gourmet grocery store that imports unusual foods and
beverages from around the world) and I had to laugh out loud when I got
to this entry:

To crunch or not to crunch?
Rosencrunch & Guildenpop Clusters of Popcorn & Nuts
You really would have to be nuts to choose the "not to crunch" option.
This nutty combination of candied pecans, almonds and sweet buttered
popcorn would have made even the moody Danish prince happy.

Rosencrunch & Guildenpop is a sweet and crunchy snack that's much
sweeter than its literary namesakes.  The all natural caramel coating
keeps the nuts and popcorn together, so you get popcorn and nuts in
virtually every bite.  In addition to its sweetness, this snack has many
other fine attributes not shared by its Shakespearean forebears: no
artificial flavors or colors, no preservatives, and it's certified
kosher.  12 oz tin $2.99

Still laughing,
Susan St. John
