happy national junk food day!
how will you celebrate this special occasion?
if i had to choose, i’d go with
flamin’ hot cheetos, chips n’ dip, and cadbury carmello bar
care to share your favorites?
“foodstuffs absolved of the obligation to provide vitamins and minerals cavorted with reckless abandon.”
I’m curious why
there would be signs
‘candy’ and kids candy?’
and then the added category of
what if the sign just read ‘candy’ ?
I’ve never considered candy to be age-specific.
are toxic extreme sour patch garbage pail warheads
the gateway into a peppermint patty?
seems like it should be the other way around.
what’s the cutoff age to qualify to eat adult candy?
is it humiliating if you’re an adult and are seen eating the kid’s candy?
is it open season to eat the bars and all ages are welcome?
do you have to get someone to buy for you
if you don’t look the proper age?
do they see it as marketing to 3 different groups
each needing their own candy sign
all in one aisle?
who sorts them and decides which is suited for which?
I like to live on the edge and went with the rollos.
“taste the rainbow.”
an exciting and cost-effective option
offered up to
the adventurous sweets eaters of the world

“all the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911.”
dam candy store, fishtown, leland, michigan, u.s.a. – July 2019
is it any surprise at all that this fruity treat
was completely ignored and left standing all alone
after the chocolate egg hunt surrounding it?
“when it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.”
there are good ideas and then there are great ideas—
these are clearly in the latter category.
“Renowned for its indulgent blend of fresh, premium Irish dairy cream, the finest spirits, aged Irish whiskey and a unique chocolate blend, the iconic Bailey’s Original Irish Cream flavor profile pairs magically with rich, semi-sweet chocolate to create this decadent treat,” a press release states. “Eat them by the handful on-the-go or mix into your favorite baked good recipe, these chips deliver on the flavor and smell of Bailey’s.”
“it’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely.”
