Sweet, sweet love!

I admit I had my doubts about this as a subject - guess I didn't need to worry! Yay for the love of candy!

Of course I must tempt you with some of my favorites before the big reveal:

JPX and JSP's candy corn back and forth had me cracking up right in the beginning,

I love candy corn
I'm in the minority

But I'm also right

Candy corn is great
If you like eating candles

made out of sugar

You knock candy corn?
Yet eat Triscuts like candy

Why not eat tree bark?

This was also a favorite of mine from JPX
Necco Wafers, yuck
Why not just sell kids armpits?

They sure taste the same

HandsomeStan was his usual hilarious self,
Some forms of torture:
Waterboarding, starvation,

And Circus Peanuts

Did I really buy
Wax bottles with juice inside?

Apparently so

Pass me some Bonkers
Look out! Giant fucking fruit!

Dangerous candy

(Particularly funny since I remember that commercial)

AC made me laugh with these gems,
in high school i sold
m&ms for fundraising.

ate them all myself. :(

deprived of candy
by 70s "healthy" mom;

backlash, anyone?

I'm not touching that one about parents who eat their kids' Halloween candy! *ahem*

Julie made a rare and wonderful appearance,
Candy for breakfast
Is one of the great perks of

being an adult.

Chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp.

Nom nom nom nom nom. Chomp chomp.

Candy is so good.

And for the love of Miko! Candy drew him out of the woodwork,
Almond Joy? What Joy?
Coconut is for old folks,

Who like hard candy

Even though this one wasn't about candy, it summed up the reasons I love this blog,
Yes, I am alive
No, I don't have an excuse

Sorry. Screw you JSP

JSP - what a treasure trove!
I used to like Nerds
I used to like lots of crap

Milli Vanilli

Yellow always sucks
Starburst, Life Savers, Skittles
I'd rather eat socks

(So freaking true!)

And not to be outdone - Catfreeek was golden (like a lovely Wonka golden egg)
Oh for fuck's sake just
Give me a choco I.V.

Yeah, now we're talkin'

Chinese fortune gum

Bought solely for it's wisdom

the gum tastes like ass

But my all time favorite of the day was this delectable truffle:

Cadbury cream eggs
Gross but good. Good but gross, right?

Those are some weird shit.

Congratulations Julie! You won the day! Cadbury Creme eggs for everyone!


Johnny Sweatpants said...

I loved the wording on that one too. Those are some weird shit indeed. Do they still make the chocolate ones?

Congrats Julie!

Also I liked Handsome Stan's assessment of Good & Plenty.

AC said...

congratulations julie! always good to see you on the blog; glad this appearance was reinforced.

JPX said...

Congratulations, Julie!


HandsomeStan said...

J - J - J is for Juuuuulie....

Congratulations! Cadbury eggs were always surreal - chocolate, but inside it looked like an egg, and the bunny rabbit sounded like a chicken.

I was also a fan of the "tree bark." Pretty much shut that argument right down! ("Cracker Jacks" was also a hoot...)

There was still so much more to talk about - Charleston Chews, Goobers, Sno-Caps, Junior Mints, boggles the mind!

Johnny Sweatpants said...

I tried my damnedest to come up with something clever about Chunky insulting the person who purchases him but the words never came.

Charleston Chews were great because they're so damn big.

I got caught up in the moment yesterday and bought some new Reece's crunchy nut bar. It was grossly disappointing and it got stuck in my teeth.

Catfreeek said...

Yay Julie! The cadbury egg is gross but good, oh so true.

It was a HHD you can be proud of Brain, great topic. Great Haiku all around.

Welcome back Miko :)

Julie said...

Wow! I'm so honored. I am going to eat some candy right now to celebrate my win. Thanks, DCD!

Octopunk said...

What an excellent topic! I'm sorry I didn't chime in with more than my (totally true) fake Twix story. I have to admit, part of my block was that so many candies had already been perfectly addressed.

Chocolate! Chocolate for all!

JPX said...

Octo, I was sure you were going to do something with the $100,000 bar. In fact, I was going to make a joke about it being renamed 110 Grand Bar but I figured I'd let you do it. Thanks a lot.

Johnny Sweatpants said...

Yeah, thanks Octo.

JPX said...

I meant "100 Grand Bar" of course.
