A to Z Mondays.....
......the food edition

That's right!  A to Z Mondays is back,  with a twist.   This time around, Jen at unglazed decided to make it more difficult exciting by giving it a theme!  

This is A week, which means we are just getting started, so why not join in?   Of course it's recommended that you don't wait until the day is almost over to post.  Just sayn'.

Grandma J would like to start of with a candy bar that she featured in a previous post. 





Aba Zaba Candy Bar
This candy bar is white chewy taffy with a peanut butter center.   That's all you need to know.
 
What was shocking to Grandma J was the fact that so many people had never heard of Aba Zaba candy bars!  Being from California it never occurred to her that it was a west coast thing. 

You know just because the  Annabelle Candy Company  is located in California doesn't mean they can't share the sweetness.

Just to show you that Grandma J has a warm and generous heart.....and just because she's heading to
So CA soon, she's decided to treat you to an Aba Zaba Candy Bar.







  If you want me to send you one, just let me know in the comment section by Wednesday at noon PST Grandma J needs to know how many Aba Zaba bars she'll need.


That's right, she's gonna stop in at the local 7-11 and buy them out of their Aba Zabas.  She may have to hit up two 7-11s.

Now, please go check out all the other interesting A ingestables over at Jen's blog, unglazed.  Please join in....the more the merrier.  Hurry, it's getting late!

** To get on the mailing list for a free Aba Zaba candy bar, email your address to grandma J at:     jannieret@hotmail.com

I've seem these in specialty shops here on the East coast. Not the 7-11 though! Bet you know what Squirrel Nut Zippers are too, don't you?

I bet thats a nice treat. Never seen any of those but as i live in Sweden I guess it explains.....

Grandma J said...

Attention bloggers, blisters and any lurkers....

Hi Grandma J,

I'm one of your faithful lurkers and I would love to try an Abba Zaba bar. How do I go about getting one?

Linda said...

I want an Abba Zaba bar! I've never heard of them.

Grandma J said...

I posted my email address at the bottom of my post. Please email me your address and I will mail out your candy bar the second week of February...just call it a little Valentine surprise :)

You are so awesome and generous.

You will be shocked, but this does not sound like my kind of candy bar. I love stuff with CRUNCH. Nutty. (like me) I do like reeses peanut butter, but I don't think this Aza Zaba is like that. Is it?

I hope you have a wonderful trip and please keep us posted.

xoxo

I have actually eaten that candy bar before! I was a child and it was purchased at the local convenience store. Probably a 7-11!

Jen said...

Happy Monday Grma J!
I'm not shy and I love candy--of any kind, and so does my honey; so you will be getting an e-mail from
me. :D
Glad you are here for this A-Z trip.

Mildred said...

Never heard of this one but it sounds delicious - I'll email you. The other day in Wal Mart, an elderly gentlemen had me looking for a candy bar named "Hard Rock." Ever heard of that one?

Ben said...

I will pass on your generous offer and let Abba Zabbas remain a mystery for a while! But thanks! (Never heard of 'em!)

Pasadena Closet Conservative said...

Wow, that takes me back!

Daisy said...

Happy Monday to you, Grandma J! I would love to try an Abba Zabba. I've never seen one before. I'll send you an email. Thank you for being such a generous and sweet soul!

GJ, you are too generous! I LOVE aba-zabas, and have since I was a kid. But come to think of it, it's probably been at least a decade since I had one. Since I can go to a local drugstore and buy one for myself, I won't take you up on your generous offer to mail one out, but I thank you for the offer!

You are so generous! This sounds delicious. I've never heard of them either, and I live in San Diego. Hmmm, I'll have to scour ouru local 7-11 next time I stop in...

How could you be old enough to blog but never had an AbaZaba?! Perhaps if you lived in Sweden maybe....but you can't miss that bumble bee wrapper in the candy section.

If I lie to myself and say I never eat candy, I may start to believe it. Either that or kill someone, I guess.

That's a new one on me Grandma J! I'm not a taffy fan, so I will decline your generous offer. I DO enjoy a good Zero bar now and then though!!

Have a safe trip, and be sure to post LOTS of pics!!

Daryl said...

That sounds alot like the Clark bar w/o the chocolate coat

Oh my gosh : ) Can I sign up! I have never heard of these before. They sound good. Anything with sugar sounds good! : ) You are SO kind to do this. I can't contain my excitement!

Linda said...

Thank you, Grandma J! My dentist will love you!

You are so special!
