Candy Prompts

This week was all about candy.  I don't eat much candy so I probably won't have much to say.  Which prompt could you write about?  Leave me a message with the answer to that prompt.
  • Monday, August 6, 2012 --- What was the first candy you ever tried?
Oh my gosh!  I'm 62 years old, how would I remember the first candy I ate?

  • Tuesday, August 7, 2012 --- What candy did you eat once that you wish you could get again?
I'd like to eat German chocolate in Germany again.

  • Wednesday, August 8, 2012 --- Talk about a memory tied to a certain candy, especially if it involves another person or a place.
My most memorable candy experience was being in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Beth, Owen and I were taking Mari back to college in Maryland and nipped a little out of the way to visit Hershey.  It was worth it.

Hershey, the sweetest place on earth. Lamp posts with lights like kisses line the streets. The whole town smells like chocolate. Divine. I'm sure that's what heaven will smell like. If you haven't been, you should go.  Click the link and see how fun it is in Hershey, PA.

  • Thursday, August 9, 2012 --- Are there any candies that you just can't stomach?
I don't think there are any candies I can't stomach, but there are several that I would say, "Why bother?" Candy corn tops that list. If I'm going to eat empty calories and raise my blood sugar, I want it to be something that tastes good.

  • Friday, August 10, 2012 --- What was the last piece of candy that you gave someone else?
It was at the public library.  Lee walked to the desk, placed a bag of Hershey's kisses in front of me and said, "You need to gain some weight," and walked away. Perplexing, the last thing I need to do is gain weight.

 Later that evening, Drej made his nightly appearance and started out with, "Wow! Where'd you get the bag of kisses?" I gave it to him and he became as giddy as a little kid on Christmas morning.

I can bring you some chocolate but you can't really eat them here. Anything specific? Do you remember the first candy I ate? I cannot remember. I love candy corn with peanuts. Makes it 1000% better. I haven't given any candy away for a while. I just EAT IT.
