Have you been pondering how I could take those delicious Black and White Bars and make them into a treat that Lindsay Lohan would love? Did you figure it out, or did I stump you? Can you tell I am little excited that I have my first Two-Parter post? Tell me your guesses: what treats would Lindsay Lohan love?
No, I am not adding any illegal substances to the Black and White Bars. Nor do the bars give you the ability to make wise decisions unfortunately.
Here it is: peanut butter and Oreos.
Does it all make sense now?
Hopefully it does, because if you haven’t seen The Parent Trap, your life up to this point cannot have been fully fulfilling. In that movie Lindsay Lohan bonds with her twin sister/herself over a love of the combination of peanut butter and Oreos. So what did my young childhood self do immediately after watching that movie? Eat some peanut butter and Oreos of course.
And it was a life changing experience. So it was only natural that as an adult when I was left with some sweetened condensed milk that I should add peanut butter to it and pour on top of Oreos. I only wish Lindsay could make such great decisions like this.
I want to eat these bars and watch the Parent Trap as soon as possible. With Dennis Quaid. Mmm.
