Dandy Candy

Candy has a superb way of rustling up memories from childhood. When I was younger, it was a treat for my brother and I to walk to the liquor store and pick out some candy. This was pre-Target, and 7-11 days when the liquor store had the best selection of candy and it didn't have a layer of dust over the packaging like candy in the liquor store does now days.

My favorite candies were Abba Zabba and Big Hunk. I chewed endless amounts of bubble gum and, before there was Fun Dip or Baby Bottle Pop, used to open a box of Jell-O Gelatin, lick my finger and dip it into the sugary goodness.

Although I am extremely partial to ice cream, chocolate chip to be exact, and slightly melted, I have been know to grab a fun-size candy bar from my always-stuffed candy jar. I am particular to Baby Ruth, Reece's, and if I can find the fun-size bars, Fast Break by Reece's. As I write down my choices, more continue to pop on my brain. I like Big Kat Kit Kat bars, and peanut butter M & M's. As you can tell, I am all about the chocolate and peanut butter.

I am not a fan of fruit candy while my husband and children live for Skittles, Dots, Starburst, and Nerds. Oooh. Those are a waste of calories in my opinion. Gummy and chewy fruit candy do nothing for my taste buds, but I'm sure that I am the minority.

Since we are on the subject of sweets, I am on the lookout for the most gooey, moist cinnamon roll, without raisins, and not from Cinnabon, on the earth. Cinnamon rolls are delicious.


You should have hung out with me this week...I had Cinnamon Rolls of EVERY variety coming out my ears! I will update my blog and you can see what my life looked like this week, try not to be too jealous...ha ha! STILL LOVING THE SWEDISH FISH!
