Okay, okay, so I haven't been keeping up with this blog. It's not that I haven't been eating candy...of course I have. I just returned from a weekend in New York that included a stop by Dylan's Candy Bar, of course. There, Steve Almond was signing copies of his new book, "Candy Freak." Here's the thing...I've read a few chapters so far and it's really funny and very clever, but I'm just so jealous that he wrote this book and it didn't even occur to me to try and put MY candy memoirs down on paper like that. ugh. Anyhow...
I was really psyched because they had Mallocups (which have been out of commission for some time now.) I also purchased Charms hard candies, a Valomilk and a Twin Bing. I went back to the hotel, started reading the book and tore open the Mallocups. Imagine my disappointment when they were hard as a rock. Probably a case left over from the old days. how sad.
