Some days, you’re reminded with how old you really are and how times have changed. This past weekend, I went to Target to pick up some office supplies and I needed to get some canned air. I used it all the time when I was younger. My brother and I actually would have fun cleaning out the keyboard because of the canned air. It was an intriguing product – the more you used it, the colder and colder the can got. Haha, we were clearly easily amused. Anyway, so when I picked up a 2-pack of canned air this weekend, I was ID’d at the register. I actually had to ask the cashier to repeat herself and I had to do a double-take at my bag because I thought maybe she scanned someone else’s wine/beer behind me? Nope, she was really ID’ing me for canned air.

Shocked, I showed her my ID and I said, “really? For canned air?” and she said, “yeah, that’s what kids are into these days.” I’m still shocked at this. I didn’t even realize it was something that kids would actually think to do. It’s all chemicals! I guess I’m just most surprised with how creative kids are these days to just get a “high.” I mean, I know when I was growing up, cough syrup was never something that you could buy in limited amounts, and now you have to be ID’d for canned air? I feel old :)

Just be aware there’s peanut butter in this for those with peanut allergies :)

I made these muffins and they were AWESOME! The only thing I changed was I used regular-sized chocolate chips (what I had on hand) and vanilla whole milk yogurt from Trader Joe's (again, what I had on hand). They cooked up perfectly in a greased muffin tin. Wish I'd taken pictures! Thank you for sharing!

Kids are definitely weird these days, but I'm sure everyone says that about the next generation! :) So sad that kids would ingest pure chemicals though. What is not sad are these muffins!! I will take 3 please!! ;)

Could I easily make this into a loaf??

Hi SKD! Sure, you could try it, but I'd make sure you don't overfill the loaf pan with too much batter and you'd have to adjust the baking time.
