Jelly Beans

I love jelly beans for Easter.  They’re so colorful and I love the various flavors.  All but black- yuck!  I can’t stand the licorice flavor.  jelly beans are so great because you get that boost of sugar without having to eat too many.  That said, it so easy to over-do it.  I need to make sure I don’t eat too many, or later I’ll be dealing with a sugar crash.

What makes me laugh is that even as an adult, I have my go-to candy for the holidays.

For Halloween, I love candy corn.  Christmas- candy canes and mixing regular and mint m&ms. Easter- along with jelly beans, I enjoy malted milk balls.

It seems almost ridiculous how much I look forward to the various sweets, but I think it’s because they remind me of being young and enjoying the surprise of all of the candy. 

There are definitely worse vices than a little candy now and then!

  1. One of my favorite all-time topics–good candy or bad candy. Someone once said all candy is good candy…I disagree. Those orange foamy circus peanuts are an example of bad candy. And a hollow chocolate bunny is one of the great let-downs in life…but, non parelils…great candy.
