News Brief: Eat Wilbur Buds, Live Forever

May 18, 2010 at 8:34 am Leave a comment

WGAL of Pennsylvania brings us this story:

On May 9, Mrs. Edna Hoover, of Litizt, Pennsylvania, celebrated her centenary: that’s one hundred years of life, a reasonable stretch by any measure. And still, by local accounts, going strong.

And what is her secret?

Wilbur Buds. Those chocolate pieces, so smooth and delicious. Yes, the one’s that came BEFORE Hershey’s Kisses. Mrs. Edna likes them. To the tune of two pounds a week.

So if your wish is to live long and prosper, perhaps Wilbur Buds are the secret path…

If you don’t know about Wilbur Buds, check out my post: Kissing Cousins: the Hershey’s Kiss and the Wilbur Bud.
