Default Favor please ;) Can someone measure a hershey "nugget" for me?

Hey folks

I'm in a bind and don't have time to run to the store till tonight. If somone has any Hershey Nuggets hanging around, could you give me a general idea of their measurements? Height, Width and Length? Don't have to be exact, just a general idea.

Thanks a ton if anyone can do this for me

I was going to write that I'd go measure but then I'd have to eat some. I am SO glad that someone else was able to post the measurements.

I just bought 4 bags at Target. 2 for $4. I also saw the big bag that held 38 oz for $7.98, but the small bags were 12 oz. I got the small bags, which meant I got 48 oz for $8.
Now, I need to make some cute nugget boxes!

I use shipping/address lables from W-Mart that are the 1x3 size. I use MS Word template for that size label, and print what I want them to say. Then, stamp all the labels at once. I then remove labels and cover the nugget wrappers. They will have a bit of overlay, Keep the text centered to prevent words from getting covered. The best part, they have adhesive on them already and they stay in place.

Every year, I type titles of Christmas songs on the labels. Stamp [ink] the sheets pretty, then place one label on each nugget. I place 25 in a nice clear bag, and embellish with a tag, then make sure I deliver the "gift" before the Dec. 1st or before I eat them. The jist of it is that it's a count down to Christmas...before you can eat a piece of candy for that day...you have to humm or sing the song on the candy. I probably should start looking for my saved list soon...can you believe that it's almost that time already?

I've even typed "Happy Birthday", etc on the labels and bagged up a "nugget-rush" to dear friends that love chocolate. The holidays, events, uses for giving the nuggets could be endless. Even did "Best Teacher Around" wrappers for Teacher Appr. week.

What a neat idea - I love it! If you find your list of songs, would you please share? Thanks!
