Personalized Fruit Roll-ups

Y'all remember Fruit Roll-Ups! Show me a kid who HASN'T wrapped a whole fruit roll-up around their pointer finger and licked on that bad boy for a half and hour on the playground, and I will show you a kid who hasn't LIVED.

SuZ at Not Your Typical Mommy is having a sweet giveaway involving fruit roll-ups of the personalized variety. I suggest you go check her out and get in on this action. How cool would a personalized fruit roll-up be?? I am thinking it would be a cute way to send save-the-dates. Although, there would be the problem of actually REMEMBERING the date after you ate the tasty mailer...

Incidentally, Fruit Roll-Ups almost led me down a twisted road, into a life of crime. A strawberry fruit roll-up from Stater Bros. in Highland, CA was the first thing I ever shoplifted. I actually swore them off for about 4 years. True story.

I was with my mom, I was 6, I saw a fruit roll-up (individually packaged, not the whole box) and grabbed it. I carried it with me through the store, gripped it in my little hand through the checkout line and realized that I had forgotten to mention to my mom that I wanted it when she loaded me in the car. Seeing the hot roll-up in my hand, she yanked me back out of the car, swatted my tiny behind and marched me back into the store to apologize for taking it. I was a snotty, blubbering mess of a child on the car ride home and was so mortified that I wouldn't even so much as LOOK at fruit roll-up in the grocery store for years after that, so as not to be tempted again.

Now, 20 years later, I am advertising them on my blog. If I win, I will totally personalize the roll with "WARNING - MAY LEAD TO STICKY FINGERS." You guys will know what I'm talkin' 'bout.
