We’ve just added three more writers to our staff! Meet Laurie, Nick/Nico, and Robby:

From Laurie:

Hey all you out there in Internet Land! I’m Laurie, and I’ve been an all-around foodie and Candy Addict since childhood. I’ve been able to indulge the foodie side of my personality in my day job as a cookbook editor, and now I get to explore my Candy Addicted side as a writer for this fine website. Chocolate, gummies, weird ethnic candy with names I can’t pronounce – I love it all, and now I’ll be able to share it all with you, the reader! As the only Canadian currently writing for the site, I also hope to be able to provide some insight into the mysteries of Canadian candy. (Did you know Smarties are chocolate in Canada? Madness!)

From Nick/Nico:

My real name isn’t Nico, but he’s my enigmatic candy persona. More stylish than I, Nico sips cappuccinos and drives a black Lexus. When someone pays seven dollars for a 3 oz. chocolate bar, that’s him – not me. When someone thinks it’d be great to make coffee-flavored fudge for all his friends at midnight, that’s him – not me. And when someone jumped up and down about the chance to blog about sweets for the greatest candy site of the new millennium, that was… oh wait, that was me. Fact is, we’re both glad to be here, and I’m eager to read your comments about my toothsome explorations.

From Robby:

Salutations! (I like to use that word whenever I get the chance.) Candy and I go way, way back, and I have the dentist bills to prove it. As a kid, I adored candy for its innocence of flavor and the pure embodiment of fun. But as I grow older, I have come to be fond of candy in new ways, the way a bottle of wine gets better with age.

Candy for me is no longer about the taste (O.K., that’s a lie, but it’s not just about the taste). Candy is about biting into a Snickers and instantly I am three-years old, living in a yellow duplex in West Los Angeles, and my father has just handed me a piece of something and he says, “I know you’re just going to like this.” I love candy for its smells, textures, and associations, each piece I ever tried being an edible journal entry of what I was doing the moment I first tasted it, like when I discovered the flavor blue raspberry (swimming at Rancho Park’s city pool).

I look forward to sharing my memories, thoughts, and new experiences with you other awesome addicts out there and hope to get a taste of yours along the way.

Please welcome them to the staff and look for new candy articles from each of them soon!

    Welcome all of you to my Entertainment that is Candy Addict. I look forward to reading your sugary explorations. Nick/Nico, you’re alt persona reminds me of Nick Twisp’s alternate personality (“Francois Dillinger”) in C. D. Payne’s “Youth in Revolt”.
