Hard drives.

Me: So the whole blogosphere is talking about how foul Turkish Delight really is. Well, not foul, but certainly not something you’d sell your family out for. Now that’s an interesting question. What would the White Witch offer you? What would you sell me out for?
The Snook: Hard drives.
Me: Hard drives??
Him: You can never have too many hard drives.
Me: I meant CANDY, you idiot!

So that’s the question. What confection would the White Witch offer you? For me, it would definitely be either Erdbeer-Joghurt Milka bars… or possibly some combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Maybe buckeyes. Buckeyes would definitely do it.

  1. Great question! For me, it would be a 100 Grand Bar, right out of the freezer…or the back of her sled in frozen Narnia.

    Unless she had a zero-calorie Twix. That would make me her slave forever.

    omg omg omg omg omg

  3. Now i have 1,6 G of raid 1. I want 1 or more T of raid 1. Snook, you really know what is good gift.

  4. I think Max was saying that if such a thing existed, he’d be all over it. But it doesn’t. Which is too bad, because he’s right, men would kill for such a thing… Mmm, Twix.

  5. Oh, and just in case any of you want to bargain with my husband for his soul, his real answer is baklava. The kind with lots of pistachios. 🙂

  6. It would be anything with chocolate and nuts.

  7. Lindt. Possibly a babushka doll christmas lindt, in super super dark chocolate.
    Don’t go with Mr Snook to the computer store.

  8. There’s a mini-chain of chocolate stores in Belgium called Au Toison d’Or, where they have something called a Manon Vanille – it’s some kind of white fondant filled with creme fraiche. I don’t have that much of a sweet tooth, but I can eat about a million of them. But Turkish Delight? I adored the Narnia books as a kid, and was soooooo disappointed to taste it – disgusting.

  9. Does anyone remember those old marathon candy bars? Looked like a rope of chocolate with caramel in it. If someone could find one of those, not outdated,I would sell my family and friends for it.

  10. oh phew.. I thought I was missing out on a piece of heaven

  11. Raisinets/yogurt raisins. Or Jelly Bellies. Twizzlers too. I’m not too picky when it comes to selling out friends and family 🙂

  12. iPods. (Well, they *look* like candy…)

  13. Kinder Bueno! (Lindt milk choccie, Ferrero Rocher and Raffaello following closely behind).

    (And OMG, Milka bars! I had totally forgotten that they existed.)

  14. Alas, there are n zero-calorie Twixes–just some wishful thinking going on there. I would like to add old-skool Marathon bars and sour Jelly Bellies to my list. I’m such a candy whore!

  15. Caramac. My aunt just sent me some over from Ireland for christmas. She knows what I like.

  16. I am with you, Kris, Buckeyes will definitely do it!

  17. She seems like she would have frozen Zero bars. That would work for me. Or maybe frozen Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs. Or Sugar Babies at room temp. I’d sell my family for any of those.

  18. Lindt Lindor chocolate truffles, preferably white chocolate ones.

  19. See’s dark chocolate truffles.

  20. What about that hot, frothy, and sweet drink? The closest I think that I’ve had so far is an eggnog latte. Reading this book as a child creates unreasonable expectations of baristas…

  21. Ooh, I had a chai at a cafe on Abercrombie St. lately that would definitely qualify. It came in a pot with the milk already added and – I’m guessing – a fair bit of honey. So sweet and yummy…

    (Though I imagine warm frobscottle would also fit the bill! 🙂 )

  22. Just coming back to this, Kris… I’m NOT a fan of Turkish Delight… well, that is until I tasted the stuff at Haigh’s. It’s not overly sweet, has almonds and is TOTALLY worth ratting out your family for.. 😉
