So, this is a repost from September 2012 because I feel very strongly about this topic still. I was going to try to whip up another post, but I decided this one is still pretty good and covers everything I have to say.
Let’s talk about another addiction of mine. It’s not watching videos of puppies and kittens this time (though I still do that compulsively). It’s this:
You know what I mean right? The ones that are essentially all sugar? I LOVE the candy corn and candy pumpkins.
But not the “chocolate” candy corn bullshit.
Anyhoo, this is a problem for a few reasons.
1. When I inevitably eat too many of them, I feel super sick.
2. Have you looked at their ingredients?
Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating. But really, it’s sugar and chemicals. Fucking delicious sugar and chemicals.
3. How about their nutrition information?
Anyhoo, they make me feel terrible, they're terrible for me, and yet my mouth is watering whilst writing this post.
And you know what the worst part is? Because EVERYONE IS AN ASSHOLE, my food store starting displaying them in the beginning of August. I haven’t bought any (yet), but we’re still like a month and a half from Halloween!!
It’s just not fair. I even had a DREAM about this candy, guys. I’m not kidding.
|Yes, yes you should.|
Clearly, someone needs to do this:
|They would have my business.|
Who’s with me? Or who else is addicted to disgustingly bad-for-you yet indisputably delicious candy?
