Sweet Thankful Thursday on Wednesday

Sweet Thankful Thursday on Wednesday
What am I eying so intently?

Last year when TW deserted me to go to the Blogpaws' conference, she spoke with representatives from Mars the Mars Company. You know them. They're the brand that gives us Greenies Dental Treats and SmartBites, Sheba, Temptations and a host of other pet foods for cats and woofies. While she was there she spoke to two different reps. After talking pet foods, she axed them both for a favor. I'm gonna tell you what she axed for.

OKaaaayyyyy. No, I think I'll pass on these. Got anything better?

While Greenies SmartBites are my favorite cat treats, TW's favorite candy treat also happens to be in the Mars family. She loves Milky Way Midnight. Only problem is that Mars didn't make bags of Milky Way Midnight miniatures. She had to buy an assortment bag where they'd throw in three or four MWM along with the Snickers (which she can't eat cos they have nuts), 3 Muskateers and regular Milky Ways. She axed the reps if they could let the company know there were fans of MWM who would LOVE bags with just that delicious—her words, not mine—dark chocolatey candy.

Can you see the bribe Greenie on the MNM bag?

Last week, she went to the store and was glancing at the candy, not really thinking she'd be buying anything. After all, they still have leftover candy from Halloween, including one of those variety bags from Mars. Then she spotted it. She says she let out a scream of joy as she picked up a bag of MWM miniatures. She wanted to buy them all but then reality set in. That, my furrends, is the story of why I'm posing with a bag of candy.

I'm all about taking the bribe.

PS: she says that everyone should try a MWM at least once in their lives if they love chocolate. After all, dark chocolate is a health food—just like Greenies! This week we are thankful to the good folks at Mars.

  4. We love those too but they've been available here for quite a while (a couple years). We keep a plastic tub that holds three packages and stock up when they're on sale. Maybe the just weren't in your area?

  15. That is so awesome! I'm glad that the good people at Mars listened to TW's request. :) It is fun when companies listen. Cinco and Manna think that Greenies are pretty pawsome too.
