In order to spread my love of candy, I have always wanted to open a candy store. Not like a Mr. Bulky's (anyone, anyone?) but similar to what Dylan Lauren has done in NYC, but in a much more local, vintage, penny-candy kind of way. I picture moms and their kiddos coming by for a piece of candy after school, grandpas stopping in for a bag of candy for their grand kids, and me noshing. All. Day. Long.
I have so many favorite candies so it would be very easy to fill a shop with sweets. But I think if I had to pick just one, I choose Haribo Gummy Bears. (Those imitation brands don't cut it for me). The Texan once brought me the world's largest bag of Gummy Bears after he went to Germany on a business trip. It was insane. Five pounds I think. And I ate every single one.
So, in honor of National Candy Month, I salute you, candy. Thanks for keeping me running.
What's your favorite candy?
PS - don't go stealin' my candy store idea. I know where to find you. :)
