    “When it comes to candy, blogger Brian Pipa knows what he’s talking about. He and his staff of sweet-toothed writers post several reviews or candy-related news items every week. Sure, it sounds like an easy (and tasty) gig, but the Candy Addict folks take their reviews very seriously. They even travel to the yearly, trade-professionals-only All Candy Expo to stay up-to-date on the latest confections. The reviews are often humorous but always detailed, which means you’ll know just what to expect when you pick up that bag of suckers.”
