keep the candy coming!

How much do I love the Candyalong? Just take a look at the sweet treats MJ sent me!

She was very brave and included chocolate in the package (we are both in warm parts of California). YUMMY. I tore into that Ritter bar pretty quickly, but first I had a “pudding marshmallow.” It was so soft I had to rub it against my face!
All this candy love has inspired me to start a candy swap group. I probably won’t really get it going for a couple of months, but when I do, I’ll let you know. I have all sorts of ideas for it (random candy swaps, gourmet chocolate swaps, seasonal swaps, regional candy swaps).

    You are so funny! I can see you brainstorming the infinite candy swap permutations. How about a blue candy swap, hard candy swap, or a sour candy swap?

    Ok i have a major toothache waaaaaaaa just the thought of candy makes me want to cry…have appt tomorrow. Ok my point being…brush, floss, and um whatever else you can so the tooth decay monsters do not make a home in your pearly whites….but it does look delicious..

    Marshmallows are one of my basic food groups, I eat some every day… I am curious…what is a pudding marshmallow and where do you get them??? Sounds marvelous!!! The variety of your posts are so very entertaining!

    If you set up a candy swap group I would so definitely want to be in it!

  7. Christine says:

    Me too! I want to be part of a candy swap group. But be forewarned, I have access to a lot of Middle Eastern candy, some of which is an acquired taste!

    How about homemade candy? (for the very very brave)
    I would love to participate in this whenever it gets going.

  9. Emma says:

    I would LOVE to be a part of this! Maybe you could do a state or country of origin inspired swap! I would LOVE to try Middle Eastern candy! Hey, I have access to chocolate covered ants (I’m from New Orleans). Now THAT would be a swap to remember!

  12. Pamela says:

    I too am a candy-a-holic and would enjoy participating in a candy swap. Count me in!

  13. MJ says:

    Ooh, candy swap! I am SO part of that! There are 3-5 sorts of stuffed marshmallow flavors, surprisingly, so I’ll grab a bunch for candy swaps. I like the themes idea; should there also be a list of preferences for each person?

    I’m in for sure, I’ve had fun shopping for the candyalong. Have most of this month’s package together, but am going here tomorrow so I’m waiting to send it… how fun does this sound? 😀
    Willy Wonka Fest
    What: You don’t have to be a kid to ride a giant Wonkamobile, munch gobstoppers, and meet an Oompa Loompa.
    Why: No golden ticket (or grandpa) necessary.
    When: Sat. 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
    Where: Dylan’s Candy Bar, 1011 Third Ave., at 60th St. (646-735-0078).
    Any permutation of a candy swap is great. International is always fun… I have access to a huge Japanese supermarket in NJ that has great candy. And maybe December people can make their own candy… I usually make nut brittles, caramels and english toffee. Yummy. Candy for breakfast anyone?

    I was just thinking that I make chocolate truffles and barley candy, so October would be a MUCH better month to start. No one likes homemade candy puddles! lol.

    I had thought about doing a candy swap too. I LOVE candy and would love to share my favorites with others. I hope you do get it up and running. Let me know if you would like any help with it.
