Makes Me Smile #6 - Maple Bars

Pin It

I went to the bakery at Lin's grocery store - the one that makes those fabulous maple bars. The thing is, I only get these delights a few times a year when I'm in the area, so I always make the most of them. Since it was kind of late this particular day I figured that all of the maple bars would be gone - after all - they were the donut usually absent from the shining glass cases before any other pastry.

I approached the bakery section with trepidation, and saw row upon row of cinnamon twists, bear claws, raspberry-filled, and old-fashioned, but notably absent were the maple bars. I consigned myself to being donutless for the day as I knelt down and looked in the back of shelf two. And there, behind the row of chocolate glazed were two maple bars staring back at me in all of their deliciousness.

I quickly bagged these golden gems, paid for them at the register, and left Lin's with a spring in my step and a grin on my face. Two maple bars...one for me, and one for my dear friend, Michelle.

Maple bars make me smile.

BTW, I did post over at Four Perspectives today...

Maple bars are awesome! I don't know if you've been to a BYU football game or not, but they sell some kick-butt maple bars at the stadium. They call them "Cougar Tails" and they're about 18 inches long.

Pure heaven.

(Sometimes I even watch the game when I buy one.)

Without a doubt, one of my favorite treats ever. Sadly, I cannot remember the last time I indulged.

Last time you posted about Maple bars I wanted to try them. Found out they don't make them in this region of the world. My nephew was headed home from Salt Lake, I asked him to find some and bring them to me. He told me,"Oh Aunt Bonnie, those things are gross!"
So much for ever trying them :o(

Sometimes it doesn't take much to brighten our days, eh? Glad you managed to get the last two maple bars. :)

Oh, I love it when I think there is gonna be none left, and then....there it is. This usually is true of ice cream in my house. Hubs loves ice cream...almost more than me. So it is a rare occasion when there is a little left for me.

So WHOOT! for you.

I knew I should've avoided any post with the words "Maple Bars" in the title. Now I've got a mother of a craving....*sigh* And I was doing SO good today!

I, too, am a maple bar addict. Tried pretty much every single one in Salt Lake, Utah, and Weber Counties and sadly enough, the absolute best one I've ever had was from *gasp* 7-11.
