C is for Candy

I really like candy. I have for as long as I can remember. As a child, I once ruined a very pretty Easter dress by attempting to eat a melted Cadbury Egg in the backseat of a car. Anyone who has spent any amount of time around me knows that I'm the one to go to if you need a sweet treat. In high school and college, it wasn't unusual for someone to whisper to me during class " you have any candy?", knowing I'd be able to discreetly dig in my book bag and produce a handful of Lemon Heads or a roll of Sweet Tarts. Now a days, even my boss' three year old knows I stash hard candies in my desk drawers.

The best thing about candy is that there are so many different types. There's a candy for every mood, season and holiday. There are some candies that compliment other foods and some that can practically be a meal all by themselves.

Yes, I've made myself sick by eating too much candy (those little orange pumpkins)

and yes, I have had a lot of dental problems. I have, in fact broken a tooth while eating Nerds (my favorite). I just have to be a bit more careful now; no more Laffy Taffy and I do have to make my boyfriend hide the leftover Halloween candy so I don't binge.

When it came time to pick my roller derby name, I only debated for a short time before finally settling on Candy Coma. Most people think
it's a cute/funny choice but anyone who knows me well usually responds with an enthusiastic "Oh Yeah! That's perfect!"


  1. Love the helmet! Currently in my desk? M&M's, wine gums, two tubs of chewing gum, and a half eaten Toblerone bar. I love candy too.

  2. thanks, now I have a craving, lol - off to raid a kids Easter basket!

    roller derby - cool!

  3. You are the first person I know to admit liking those little pumpkins. Guess they make them just for you.

  4. You can keep the candy... gimme french fries!

  5. I went on a quest to find "Atomic Fireballs" and when I finally found them, I bought all of them at my local CVS. I'm surprised I haven't broken a tooth. Knock on wood.

    Good luck with the A to Z!
