Ordinarily, my supermarket experiences offer few interesting photo opportunities. But when witnessing a true American phenomenon like this, it just seems a shame not to document. It was back in October, (opening day of Candy Hunting season) when I saw this.
Yes, a yard. These chocolate babies really measured three feet high. I'm no marketing professional, but it seems like Safeway missed an opportunity to do what is known in retail as an "add on." If they'd displayed these in their pharmacy section, customers could've just grabbed their glucose monitors and syringes on their way out.
