Stress is such an interesting phenomenon. The steady way it creeps up on you until you think, does my heart always feel this fluttery? The different strategies available for coping with stress are as unique as the people who (try to) use them. To be perfectly honest, I’m a bit stressed much of the time here. From work, to the horns and pollution, to people asking for money, to financial issues, it’s easy for me to let that fluttery feeling become overwhelming and all encompassing. To maintain my sanity, I usually (rarely) try to channel the stress into good coping mechanisms like exercise or journaling, but sometimes, like today, I just eat Twix instead.
So, this is my shout out to the geniuses over at Mars Snackfood US, LLC in Hackettstown, New Jersey. The Twix with Peanut Butter just changed my life. It resolved my ever constant struggle to understand why in the world Oreo didn’t just make a REAL peanut butter Oreo (not peanut butter icing, please), and cover it with chocolate. You guys nailed it. Bravo.
