The Snack That Lasts Forever
I've flown across the country on Continental Airlines twice in the past few months. Four times the flight attendants handed out the same snack:

We never opened ours. No one around us opened theirs. At the end of each flight, the seat-back pockets showed one Dave's Lil' Loafer after another peering over the edge, mocking the passengers' cowardice. How bad could they be, after all? Perhaps they are delicious. Sadly, I will never find out because I remain a coward.

The name sounds too close to a Cleavland Steamer. If ya know what I mean?

Dammit! It's Cleveland. Oh, how I've disappointed you, Cleveland Steamer!

You should have taken it with you, put it my mailbox at school and I would have eaten it when it got here--I'll try anything once, even a Cleveland Steamer.

I thought of it, actually. But it came open and dried out. Even you aren't going to eat a rock!

I can't resist this one

Dude, you should've pinched one so I can try it. Goddamn, doo-doo is funny.

Oh, yes. You have to see Grizzly Man for the poop scene alone!

The US airline industry is in a shitmess, so they're having to economise wherever they can. By handing out snacks with a shelf life equivalent to that of most components of Cher, and of such dubious nature that nobody opens them, they're able to pass out the same Dave's Li'l Loafer Chocolate Chunks again and again and again. They just collect them up together with the headphones after all the passengers have "deplaned" (a nonword meaning "left the airplane").

Mine sure seemed awfully crackly for a sealed pastry. Like Mrs. Havisham's wedding cake.

I think it looks kind of tasty. Where can you find these? Or is this one of those brands that only exist on planes?

Nice to hear from you! I was just looking at that mix CD you made me in January, 2002 today and thinking of you fondly.

Alas, the only internet reference to the product is the on on my blog. That seems impossible, but it's true.

How is NYC? I wish you'd keep LJ taps on the famous people you're seeing etc.
