Our Work is Our Play!
Ok so I just wrote out this whole post and as I was going to submit it, I exited out of the tab accidentally. I wasn’t able to recover my draft, so here I go. Now that it’s late, I’ll have to keep this post shorter than the original. But anyhow, I wanted to talk about my favorite confections, the ones I’ve reached for again and again.
1. Sour Patch Watermelon
This is something I’ve been head over heels with since I was in elementary school when I first discovered them. I always take these to the movies with me or pick them up from the drug store when I know I’ll be up late working on homework. They’re sweet, sour, and wonderfully immature. I just can’t get enough.

2. Swedish Fish
This candy really takes me back to being with my Grandparents at Christmas time, riding in the car to look at all the lights around the town. While I prefer the original red fish, the other flavors are wonderful too. This is also something I see all the time at work. I suppose these are kind of old fashioned? This is a candy I not only enjoy for the taste, but for their sentimentality.

3. Godiva Dark Chocolate with Raspberry
While I love my childish gummy candies, I love my chocolate. However I am very picky about it, specifically I prefer European chocolate like Milka, Ritter Sport, and Hanuta. There is a unique tactile experience that comes with this specific Godiva bar. The snap of the bittersweet dark chocolate transitions into the sweet raspberry jelly then you get a tiny crackly crunch from the raspberry seeds. It’s always been something I take anytime I can get.
