This Week in Candy - Novelties

imageI’m hard at work these days on a novel that you’ll never, ever read. (I do this every year as November is National Novel Writing Month.)

Last year’s novel was about candy, this year’s is about whale watching, or at least so far. So that’s how I’m spending my spare time these days (not that I have a lot of that ... it’s Candy Season!).

I’m also participating in National Blog Posting Month, which is a challenge to post to your blog at least once a day. Most readers know I pretty much post six times a week. So in November you’ll get 7 for the price of 6!

Let’s see what happened this week besides Halloween and the wonderful Post-Halloween Sales!

Monday: Big Mo’ Bars: Peanut Butter & Creamy Caramel (4 out of 10)

Tuesday: Andes Mints & Dessert Indulgence (6 out of 10 & 4 out of 10)

Wednesday: Mentos Xtrm: Mint & Spearmint (6 out of 10)

Thursday: Bratz Candy Cosmetics (5 out of 10, 3 out of 10 & 4 out of 10)

Friday: Kenny’s Licorice Pastels & Root Beer Twists (4 out of 10 & 7 out of 10)

Weekly average: 4.7 with a total chocolate content of 18% ... hmm, the lower the chocolate content, the lower my weekly average. I may be onto something here.
