This article in the New York Times confirms my theory that people are eating more candy, including myself.
For months now, every time I go into Sunflower Market, I cruise past the bulk bins and shovel in some chocolate covered malt balls or raisins or prepackaged black licorice or candy coated almonds. In Trader Joe’s I bought Jelly-Belly jelly beans based on being fat free. But, in reality who can stop at a few? Like sugar, they are addictive and spike my blood sugar.
According to the article, people are turning to candy because it’s a small affordable indulgence that makes them feel nostalgic for better times. I can so relate.
What candy is your secret pleasure?
