The Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts


Another of the funny stories I can think of about food, when I was a little girl, my mom and her parents and I went to Hawaii. As many people know, the delicious macadamia nuts are grown there and are widely available, as are the chocolate covered ones. So we’d gotten a box of these chocolate covered macadamia nuts and brought them back up to the hotel room to share and enjoy.

We didn’t eat the whole box in one sitting of course, so put them in the drawer under the telephone where the phone book and bible was that was between the two beds. The next day I went to have a few of the chocolates and decided not to eat any when I saw ants crawling on them. How ants could get there on a not ground floor room and in a drawer, I will never know, so I just put the lid back on the box and closed the drawer. I mentioned it to my mom and she just left them there. A while later we laughed when we came back in the room and saw my grandfather eating the chocolates, seemingly unaware they had some ants crawling on them. LOL, we teased him for years after that about it.
