This was what the marketing geniuses call an “impulse buy,” the kind of thing that seems like a good idea at the register. A gag. A good goof the next time the neighbors come over for dinner.

Purchased at the Margaritaville Store in Nashville, you’ll note they may contain soy. It’s right there on the bottom of the label. “May contain soy.” Soy is the last ingredient before the bar code. Soy is set out there all on its own, away from the rest of the ingredients, like its the most important. Like its the one thing you MUST know about this particular piece of candy.
