This Week in Candy - Packing my Bags
I’ve been spending my spare time toiling away on my bad novel. I’m still shy of my fundraising goals for the Write-a-Thon next weekend for National Novel Writing Month. So if you’ve been thinking about donating to the cause (and possibly winning some limited edition candies for your trouble), please, please do it soon.
My donation to the cause will be a candy buffet for the other writers to enjoy. Don’t worry, I’ll have photos and hopefully lots more to say about candy buffets and candy favors for weddings and other parties.
I’ve also been prowling around in the post-Halloween bargain bins. I’ve been horribly disappointed. My best buys were Ghost Peeps for 9 cents a package and some Wonka Donutz that have some sort of red goo at the center for 13 cents each. (I’m not sure if they’re from this year or not.) The better news is that the Christmas candy is out and I’m seeing the Junior Mints Deluxe at RiteAid already.
Here’s the week in review:
Monday: Boston Baked Beans (5 out of 10)
Tuesday: Cowgirl Chocolates Buckin’ Hot Habanero Caramels (6 out of 10)
Wednesday: Melville Honey Spoons (6 out of 10)
Thursday: Sour Patch Extreme (5 out of 10)
Friday: Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Filled with Creamy Peanut Butter (5 out of 10)
Average rating 5.4 for the week with a 20% chocolate content.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
