Hello, fellow sugar enthusiasts! Iâ€™m Mary and Iâ€™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 discriminateâ€¦ candy is candyâ€¦and I welcome it in all flavors, colors, shapes and sizes.
