Busy week in candy land
As a freelance writer, I get assignments on all sorts of different topics, from how tequila is made to how to tell if you're healthy via the size and shape of your bowel movements. (Sorry for the graphic image, but we all really should pay attention to our colons.) I love my job because I'm always learning something new. But every now and then I hit pay dirt and this week, it's time to celebrate. I'm doing a trade article on (drumroll, please) chocolate and confections. Fantastic. I've started getting some samples already and it's been quite interesting talking to people about manufacturing and retailing of the sweet stuff. I'll be sure to post here about all the interesting little tidbits I learn in the coming days.
