Thirty Six or Six?

It's been brought to my attention on numerous occasions that I have the eating habits of a child and I must admit that this is pretty much, mostly a little bit true. Admittedly, I did have a paper route when I was a kid just so I could use the money to ride my bike to the store to buy candy. I love to eat Lucky Charms for dinner when Adam isn't home. I always have an hidden stash of candy...you know, in case of emergency. I can't go to a movie without hittin up the over priced concession stand while also sneaking in my own treats. I have a drawer full of candy and treats in my desk at work and when my stock runs low, I get nervous. I've lied outright to a cashier while buying large amounts of candy that they were not for me but were for all for a kids birthday party that I was hosting, but wasn't. I should be ashamed of myself...but I'm not.


These are the three candies/treats that I've consumed in the past few days and for some sheets and giggles, I'd thought I'd share my thoughts on each.


Whoppers - If you’re supposed to taste like a milk fart, congrats. You nailed it. 


Grape Pop Rocks - They used to come in grape flavor, then they didn’t, and now they do again. Genius!

Sour Patch Kids - I generally don’t eat anything with such blatant ties to the doll industry, and usually do my best to steer clear of ingesting candy in the shape of a child. So, when I frantically gobble a whole bag of you in 45 seconds while waiting in line at Loblaw's - which I do with shameful frequency - I don’t feel particularly good physically or mentally. Taste, as it turns out, is far more powerful a motivator than morality, guilt, eyesight, health, self-esteem, reason or shame.

Nerds (Classic and Nerds Rope) - Great taste. Two huge strikes on size and shape though guys. Classic nerds are way too small. I want to enjoy some artificial sweetness, not pan for gold. My only other Nerds option is rope? ” I don’t like the idea that I could hang myself with candy. Here’s something delicious that can also be used as a lasso! You should have tried “Nerd Nuggets” or maybe “Nerd Tots” first.


What about you...what's your favourite candy or treat?

  4. M&M Blizzards from Dairy Queen. I've been craving one for 2 weeks now. I don't live very close to a DQ though, so I'll have to wait until this weekend when I visit my parents.

  6. I like anything sour that makes my mouth pucker or anything with sherbet. Astro belts and fizzy laces. Do you get dip-dabs and sherbet fountains that side of the pond? Ooh and I love peanut M&Ms.
