Adam bought me a lovely wire basket filled with non-dairy candy as a surprise for Easter. I so appreciated the effort he put into reading the labels and trying to make sure it was all stuff that wouldn't make me all stuffy. Unfortunately, I ended up with a basket-full of candy that I didn't find particularly appetizing. Since it really is the thought that counts in this case, he gets an A+ for effort.
I did mention to him that much of the candy was not really to my taste. I'm tactful that way. He suggested I put together a list of my favorite candies, so next time he decided to surprise me, he'd have a reference guide. Then he'd be sure to get me something that I could appreciate the thought and the gift.
Meanwhile, about a week ago, we decided to start a weight-loss plan together. It's rather an interesting concept, since I don't know where we put our scale. On the other hand, I guess when my pants start falling down, I'll know I'm headed in the right direction.
My love, eventually when you can buy me candy again, here's what I like, in no particular order ...
Jelly Belly Jelly Beans: Buttered Popcorn is my favorite, but I like almost all the flavors.
Reese's Pieces: Peanut Butter Cups are okay in a pinch.
Dove Dark Chocolate Promises (we have a coupon for these)
Swedish Fish: I like the red ones from the bulk bin. The prepackaged ones are too soft and squishy.
Toblerone: Milk Chocolate, not Dark Chocolate
Strawberry Twizzlers (this is your fault)
Easter: yellow Peeps (the chicks, not the bunnies)
Halloween: candy corn pumpkins (plain candy corn is okay, if that's all they've got--I prefer the ones with the chocolate layer to the regular ones)
Christmas: chewy peppermints with the Christmas tree in the center
That's all I can think of right now, but if more come to mind, I'll add them.
