For many of my small Chanukah presents, my wife gave me some pieces of toffee. Specifically, Trader Joe's English Toffee with Nuts.
Wrapping them five or six at a time was a kindness. I could eat three or four, and share one with each boy.
The toffee has 200 calories per three-piece serving. There are 23 servings per tin. That's 4,600 calories if she instead gave me the entire thing as a present!
By the way, for $8.99 that works out to 511 calories per dollar. That's the
same as Tilamook Monterey Jack or canned black beans at Costco.
Now what should I do with the rest of the tin's toffees? Chanukah is over and although they are delicious I do not really want to keep eating them.
For those who are curious, the cheapest calories I have shopped for at Costco were Quaker oats (2,460 calories per dollar), peanut butter (1,906 calories per dollar), and brown rice (1,483 calories per dollar).
