Easter Candy 2008

It’s not as much fun buying candy when your kids are wearing braces. That became very clear to me in the Easter candy aisle at Target on Saturday. I had to tear myself away from all those lovely jellybeans and Starbursts and Tootsie Rolls, but I bought a lot of chocolate—the best I could find. Our daughters can coat their teeth in the stuff, and the brackets will remain intact.

Still, I hung around examining the wares. The blood-orange colored Peeps made me gag. The mom standing next to me and I both agreed that the flavored, edible grass for the Easter baskets was just weird.

i'm just the opposite - if it's not chocolate, it's not candy. but because of food allergy baby, i am restricted to the pure sucrose family (no dairy, no how), which means jelly beans, smarties, gummi bears, dum dums, and peeps. ick. the only consolation is i won't be tempted to steal from my children.
