100-calorie candy store satisfaction

I’m not gonna lie: When I walked into a Huntington candy store disguised as a coffee shop late Tuesday afternoon, those gigantic homemade turtles sitting on a thick bed of pecans just inside the front door got my attention.

Luckily, Colleen called me over to the chocolate-dipped pretzels instead.

“How many calories do you think these are?” she asked.

I didn’t know, but we both figured they had to be a heck of a lot less than those turtles. Later, googling various gourmet versions (as well as a plain pretzel plus three Hershey’s kisses), we came up with a guesstimate of around 100 calories. (Our pretzels weren’t quite as fully coated as those in the photo above.)

We walked out of there with a satisfying treat, minus the guilt. (Good thing I hadn’t been by myself, or I might have succumbed to turtle temptation.)

I got this off the Party Shop's facebook page, but it's basically the same sight we encountered Tuesday afternoon.
