Sugar Rush

I feel the need to start this by saying that I love vegetables. I eat a variety of nutritious foods. I cook the majority of my meals. I also have a killer sweet tooth. 

Not like “oh I enjoy a square of dark chocolate in the evening.” No, I want artificial flavours and bright colours and sour powder and straight up trash candy.  

I try not to eat a lot of candy but when I do, it’s the candy an elementary school child would enjoy. I refuse to feel any shame over this.  

It took three and a half hours for Poppy to fall asleep tonight, and sometime after the stories / songs / back rub portion of the shenanigans but before the open weeping, I kind of checked out mentally (it was best for both of us for me to stop engaging) and tried to figure out my favourite candy of all time.  

An impossible task, I know, but I’ve narrowed it down to my top three: 

1. Hot Tamales (the burnier, the better) 

2. Sour Patch Kids (apparently I just really hate my tongue) 

3. Skittles (which can be ranked as follows: Tropical, Original, Berry, and I refuse to acknowledge any of the other types). 

What tops your favourite candy list? (If you’re someone who doesn’t eat candy that’s great, I’m really happy for you, this post isn’t for you.)
