Thank Goodness Easter is an Annual Event
And not any more frequent than that! Otherwise, I'd be a lot bigger than I am.
One of my favorite candies -- Cadbury's Mini Eggs -- comes out at this time of the year. Usually in the post-Easter sales I get several large bags to last me till the next year. Unfortunately, my kids have discovered my stashing spot, so I'm going to have to hide them better this year because they go through them in a about a week, whereas it would take me about three months to go through 36 ounces of candy.
This theme dovetails nicely into a short story contest I'm writing for which is all about chocolate and cravings. Should be one hot story!
It also brings back memories of living around the corner from the NECCO factory in Cambridge, MA. If you've never visited a candy factory on fudge day, please do yourself a favor, and do so. The memory of that incredible aroma will never, ever leave you. It's like swimming in chocolate soup. Truly one of the more amazing experiences in life. We used to get lightheaded walking past the factory from sniffing so deeply and frequently.
