Candy Obsessed? I Prefer to Think I'm Focused

When the Ice Cube Queen was in town a few weeks ago, she was excited to view the Candy Yum Yum headquarters. She wanted to see the stockpiles of candy, the desk where I craft my entries and, of course, the chocolate river. She caught me at one of those times, though, when my candy larder was empty and my desk was buried under various Hello Kitty notepads, books to donate and birthday cards that I should've sent out months ago. (And as for the chocolate river, well, that remains a secret).
In contrast, my friend Kate (you might remember her from this post, where I divulged her love of 3 Musketeers) was here this weekend for her 20th high school reunion. I haven't seen her in 12 years, and it was her first time meeting the Sugar Baby. For some reason, she caught us on a sugar high. Not only was I stockpiled with tons of candy (lots of reviews and giveaways coming up!), but the Sugar Baby also decided it was going to be a candy-themed weekend.
I present to you the evidence: The books he was reading over and over and over again: "A Baker's Field Guide to Holiday Candy & Confections," (which has since been tossed since he accidentally peed on it while reading in the bathroom) and "10 Trick-or-Treaters," a very cute book about counting backwards. (You might remember the Field Guide from this post; now the Sugar Baby loves shouting "World's Easiest Fudge!")

Of course, we played Candyland (he is always the red gingerbread man)And he re-discovered his awesome plastic chocolates from Valentine's Day. Are we a little obsessed here? Nah, I don't think so!

HELLO??!!!!!!! What "Chocolate River?" I never heard of it!

"A Baker's Field Guide to Holiday Candy & Confections" .... you threw that book away! It looks like a really great book!

Hey, Sugar Baby, I want some "World's Easiest Fudge!!!"

TO YUMYUM READERS: Yea, I was really disappointed in CYY headquarters :( There was no candy to be seen!!!! So, when you go to visit, make sure you go at a "good time!"
