We have just hired three excellent writers to keep the candy news, views, and reviews coming here on Candy AddictÂ®! Here is a brief intro to them:
Greetings, fellow sugar lovers. By day, Iâ€™m an intrepid journalist, eager to make the world a better place by educating, entertaining and even inspiring my readers. Once I liberate myself from the tractor beam emanating through my computer screen, however, I transform into a candy munching freak who tempers her indulgences with liberal amounts of veggies. I knowâ€¦ just go with it.
Weâ€™re kindred spirits, you and I. Some speak fondly about how meditating, petting a furry family member or even taking a walk in the woods helps to ground them, and while I appreciate at least two of those activities, Iâ€™ve got to admit â€“ the simple act of tearing into a candy wrapper takes the cake, especially when the contents within have never before graced my taste buds.
My penchant for candy wanderlust has transported me to exotic edible locales that have elated, intrigued and certainly even horrified me at times, but the simple anticipation of what lies in wait always has me coming back for more. If you share my enthusiasm for unchartered candy coated territory, hop on board for an adventure that will stimulate your five senses as well as your funny bone.
Hi! I’m Heather: mild-mannered children’s librarian by day; voracious jellybean-snarfing, chocolate-smearing, Tootsie Pop-gnawing Candy AddictÂ® by night (and, well, let’s face it, by morning and afternoon and midnight snack, too). Trying to name my favorite candy is just as impossible as eating conversation hearts without my tongue turning fluorescent pink. But I particularly love chocolate, especially when it also includes caramel or peanut butter; gummies of all varieties; and candies where I get to sort the colors into piles and savor the purples and reds last. And I’m elated to have the chance to share candy reviews, news, and musings with you!
Hello, fellow sugar enthusiasts! I’m Mary and I’ve been a candy fiend since as far back as I can recall. Though, as a tot, I once puked up red licorice at the movie theatre after having eaten an entire bag of it and stopped eating it for many years, candy and I have been best friends for life. I live and work as a professional writer, copy editor and proofreader in the New York City area where you can often find me roaming the streets, hunting for sweetmeat. (Did do you even know that was a word?!) I absolutely love chocolate. But I am not going to discriminate… candy is candy…and I welcome it in all flavors, colors, shapes and sizes.
Look for lots of great stuff from these three in the days/weeks ahead!
