My Favorite Things – A Trip to the Candy Store

In a cruel twist of fate, a new candy store opened on Broadway right near the subway stop I frequent. ¬†Self-serve and charged by the pound (the candy, not the customer), It’Sugar is fast becoming a weekly ritual for me.

Enter this neon mecca and you might not know where to start!

I’m partial to the chewy stuff, so that’s where I head to stock up on jelly beans…

Gummy peaches…

Raspberries and blackberries…

And my gotta-have licorice.

So far, I’ve exercised great restraint in my purchases. ¬†Here’s the sum total of today’s haul (minus the 3 pieces I ate on the bus ride home).

It’s a good thing, too, because at $13.96 per pound, this habit might become overwhelming…

Or, I could end up looking like this!

    • Hi Helen,

      Funny how quickly that little bit of candy goes. I think the anticipation of having the first piece after I’ve assembled my little bag of goodies is the best part. I’m into the candy corn, right now…guess I must be needing a Halloween fix.

      Are you still on tour? Hope you had a fun time and that Hoover Hall didn’t “suck” too much;-)
