Not to pander to my audience, (the vast bulk of traffic I seem to get is on this post about Soap Candies), but I’ve another candy-related anecdote as I strive to reactivate this desolate wasteland of a vanity experiment.

We threw another party in the house the other evening, entitled “Broken Dreams” and entirely themed around “things you wanted to be when you grew up, but won’t be”.

I was Willy Wonka. Man, that dude was awesome. I have no sweet tooth to speak of, but the job would still be the greatest career ever.

Anyway, myself, Rachel, and Adonia were tooling around town getting our costumes together and decided to stop off at Bulk Barn so I could stock up on prop candy.

While there, in their “Easter Special” section, there was a woman in sanitary gloves meticulously picking her way through their bin of knockoff Cadbury Mini Eggs and taking all the blue ones.

I asked her if she needed them for some sort of cake-decorating project and she replied with “no, they’re just for eating”. …Hm? She elaborated that “Well, the blue ones are better. The others taste like the chemicals used to colour them!” …Hm?! She then claimed that the blue ones were the “natural colour” and that all the other ones are recoloured from the original blue.

I politely informed her that a white one had slipped into the bottom of her bag and left her to her mission.

The party went excellently.
