Well, since I am brave I tried a box of Dots again today. As you may recall, I receieved a box of very nasty Dots last week.
I am happy to report that today's box of Dots was fine. No white crusty substances at all!
For your information there were 18 Dots in the box. 5 lime, 5 orange, 4 cherry, 3 lemon, and 1 strawberry. Why only one strawberry? Only further post-lunch treats will determine if this a fluke or a anti-stawberry conspiracy.
