What do you do when you get coal in your stocking?



Why, eat it, of course!

I'm thinking this is Trader Joe's way of making lemonade out of lemons, and as the snow falls from a sky that has been grey for weeks, I can't say that I blame them. I ate it all up yesterday while getting back into work after the holidays, wondering all the while if candy cane coal might be responsible for a nation-wide rise in bad behavior.

Thanks mom!

My parents never did the coal in the stocking thing. Not sure why. But I'm all for edible coal. :)

A lil coal and a lil bad behavior never hurt anyone. Nothing like sweet treats in the stocking! :)
