I'll come up with something in a minute.

Candy dénouement

So I looked out the kitchen window, right? Now yesterday I never looked, even though normally I do. The kitchen window looks at the back door, where we normally get deliveries. I noticed a box and said “What the hell?” as we weren’t expecting anything. So I went out and what did I find? Well, I’ll show you…

I would like to blame Alex, since he’s only 4, but I know better. My sister doesn’t need a 4 year old to encourage her to buy me candy.

Look at all that.

DSC01629
Yummy!

DSC01634
Boston baked beans, small box.

DSC01638
Candy Cigarettes

DSC01641
Nerds, which are lovely.

DSC01647
Folly, who was watching from afar.

DSC01652
Vienna, who was “helping” up close.

DSC01655
Razzels! Do you remember razzels? Have you ever had a razzle? First, right, it’s a candy. Then… are you ready for this? It’s GUM!

DSC01660
Fundip.

DSC01663
As I didn’t get one good shot of the Cry Baby candies, I went with the one that had V’s nose in it.

DSC01668
Yummy, yummy Sour Patch kids.

DSC01678
Gummy hot dog?

‘kaaay

DSC01681
WAX LIPS!

DSC01684
Sour Apple blow pop.

DSC01694
It’s a tootsie pop, but the photo is so bad you can’t begin to guess it’s flavor.

DSC01692
Well, it’s raspberry flavor.

DSC01699
Humph! I like every flavor of laffy taffy except banana.

DSC01702
MMMMMM Sugar Daddy!

DSC01705
Air Head candy

DSC01707
I really like these! I won’t even let Syd know this one exists. Which means I shouldn’t post it. Or I should prevent her from reading. She probably doesn’t read anyway. She’ll just glance at the pictures. Which means she’ll still see it. Damn, this is tougher than I thought.

DSC01710
Skor is nice, I like those.

DSC01713
Well… I like Swedish Fish, but I’m not gonna punch a baby to get them or anything. Unless it was a particularly ugly baby. You know, one you’d want to punch anyway. Maybe Baby Hitler. Tell you what, get me a time machine and some Swedish Fish and I’ll go punch the Baby Hitler in the mouth.

DSC01718
A watermelon ring pop. What the hell can you say about that?

DSC01723
Gobstoppers! Wooo

DSC01726
Bit o Honey! Only two pieces though.

DSC01731
Some sort of peanut butter candy thing.

DSC01735
Two whole toostie rolls. But then, there’s lots of other stuff.

DSC01738
MMMM American Smarties, which are different than the kind from England.

DSC01741
Candy Necklace?

FUCK YEAH!

DSC01743
We live in a world where there are still CANDY NECKLACES!!!!!!!

DSC01749
This pepermint stick was a bitch to photograph.

DSC01753
I took the second shot just to prove I was able to get more than one useable photo.

DSC01759
Thought the were the same thing until I examined the photo. A jaw buster and an Atomic Fireball.

DSC01765
The only time I get cow tails are in packs like this.

DSC01769
Syd will claim this, then forget to eat it, and then not miss it when I munch it down in six weeks. I will bet money on this one.

DSC01773
It’s like a Swedish Fish, only cinnamon and in the shape of a bear.

DSC01775
Well, I did eat pepermits with bible quotes on the wrapper as a kid, so it’s truth in advertising.

DSC01779
Zotz? ZOTZ!

DSC01781
ZOOOOOTZ! Zotz are still obtainable!

DSC01784
If you don’t know what these things are, because you were raised in a communist country or your parents were so idiotically religious that anything enjoyable was banned when you were a child, let me explain. Zotz were the thing that Prometheus actually stole fro the gods. They changed the story to fire when people started to feel like they’d over reacted a bit. You’ve got a hard fruit flavored candy with a sour fizzy center. After you’ve sucked on them for a while, they explode in your mouth with a great deal of fizzy flavor. They are awesome.

DSC01786
Hershey’s Special Dark… meh

DSC01790
Syd will want the pop rocks. I know that.

DSC01795
I don’t know why I bothered photographing these. They’ve already been eaten.

DSC01798
Holly would want these Sprees if she were going to be here. I might save them for her, she’d like them.

DSC01807
PUSH POP!

DSC01804
Yup, push pop.
