Romance & Candy..

NO REALLY, I'm SO romantic.. ;)

I'm a sucker for holiday candy, a big sucker (no pun intended). I think this is due to my mother's up-bringing. She was kind of a health nut, we never had sugar cereal, there was never a candy jar around the house. For school lunches we were only allowed HALF of a Little Debbie snack, like I would take only one of the two amazingly delicious nutty bars. Do you ever wonder how Debbie got the name 'Little'? Let's be honest, if was I was eating several nutty bars a week, coupled with a few Oatmeal cream pies there would be nothing little about me. Tangent, sorry...but my mom did buy holiday candy. I love holiday candy, I love candy corn (BRACHS ONLY), I love Starburst jelly beans, I buy every new color that M&M puts out, and this time of year I LOVE DOVE chocolate and conversation hearts, really love them. I'm a total snob about it though, the hearts HAVE to be the NECCO brand, the ones that come in the cute pink box with the see through window. Please note: Brachs conversation hearts may be good for conversation but for nothin' else, they are WAY TOO soft. Necco converstation hearts are simply delightful, I buy the boxes by the dozen, seriously. And ever since I was a child I also loved the conversation aspect of them. I gave my boyfriend in 1st grade several different versions of conversation hearts on the playground. I think that was before guys were taught to be scared of commitment, Jeremy Goaley (who was a great break-dancer) loved the 'marry me' hearts i gave him. There may have been a few 'kiss me' and 'hug me' ones in the mix as well. What can I say, he was a good dancer!! Anyway, this year as I made my way through my first box of hearts and chocolates I really analyzed the messages. Some of the messages have remained classic but some are very 2009..., like, 'text me' and 'LOL'.. so I thought well, what would make me 'LOL' is if someone confiscated this candy and had their way with the msgs.. So i got my hands on a few. Ya know, a conversation heart for the mature more jaded audience.. IMHO, it made me 'LOL' :O!

This did say, 'Remember your first crush'...

I too am a sucker for Necco Hearts. It amazes me how many different ways that Dove markets every holiday. And if it it's not a holiday you can always have eat a Dove promise.

Everyone "loves the quotes" on the inside of the Dove Promises. I get as excited about reading them as I did about Cracker Jack prizes when I was a kid. Visit my blog for the latest Dove Chocolate News.

I love your photos and the way your blog showcases them!

I loved this post Beth. I too am a sucker for dad was a dentist and because of that, I never got a candy bar until age 12. Had to split a piece of sugarless gum with my sister every time! Needless to say, I'm now a candy addict due to deprivation as a child ;-)

We live near a dentist and at Halloween he gives out Candy and Dental Floss. My kids think it is the craziest house to go to....the highlight of their nite.
