I stumbled across this blog while searching for the name of one of my favorite candies, and had a great time exploring it.  Just reading her descriptions makes me feel like I am sitting there eating these as I read.

In case you haven’t guessed, I’m head-over-heels in love with confectionaries. It all started with my unusually large sweet-tooth, paired with an adventurous palate, and a need to document it all. If you ever have any suggestions, ideas (or both!) I’m always open to them... My goal as The Candy Enthusiast is to try everything once so you don’t have to. I think that’s pretty sweet, don’t you?

Pecans roll, so always point them up hill... ?

Or maybe it's like the amnesiac who peed into the wind. It all came back to him. Depends on how you pronounce "pecan".

 huh undecided

I have grandchildren in Canada. Anyone care to recommend a Canadian or USA mail order business for Easter themed treats?
Thanks,

I don't have any advice about a mail order business, but I thought I'd take the time to warn you: Careful when transporting candies across the border! For example, there are hollow chocolate eggs with toys in them that are illegal in USA (choking hazard).

The United States takes its ban on chocolate eggs with toys inside very seriously, a Canadian woman discovered when she was threatened at the border with a $300 fine over a Kinder Surprise, media said Tuesday.

CBC said Lind Bird was stopped at the U.S. border last month and selected for a random search of her vehicle. Authorities found and seized a two-dollar Kinder Surprise as illegal contraband.

"It’s just a chocolate egg,” Ms. Bird told CBC. “And they were making a big deal. They said: ‘If you were caught with this across the border you would get charged a $300 fine.’"

Quote from: From Deozaan's Article
While it may seem trivial to some, U.S. authorities followed up with a seven-page letter asking Ms. Bird to formally authorize the destruction of her seized Kinder egg, she told CBC.

...You gotta be shitting me.

Does this story remind anybody else of the scene from Airplane where heavily armed terrorists trapes right through security, seconds before security decides to tackle, slam on the floor, and strip-search a 90 year old woman with a walker?

Why torture yourself?  Seems like a sure-fire way to drive yourself to go off the diet.  Stick with DC and maybe sites that feature cats or dogs.

Now *I'm* off for my Reese's  tongue
