Part of the point of 43 New-to-Me is to have different experiences, to stretch myself, that sort of thing. There wasn't much risk involved in trying Pineapple Sunkist. I like pineapples, I like Sunkist, I like soda. It wasn't a stretch at all. Same with #3.
At the same mini mart where I found the Sunkist, I noticed Birthday Cake M&Ms. I'd heard they were good but hadn't tried them yet. I debated whether or not to include them amongst the 43, but ultimately decided to. Heck, it was my birthday. What could be more appropriate than Birthday Cake M&Ms?
As it turned out, I didn't love them. They were fine, but I like every other flavor of M&Ms better. Trevor ended up finishing my share. I'm glad I tried them so that I know in the future that they aren't a temptation!
