Just a random observation:
I LOVE holidays that revolve around candy– I may have an addiction. I get really excited for candy that is holiday specific. The fact that you can only buy it during a certain times of the year is what does me in. Take for example Valentine’s JuJu hearts– I am obsessed with these during the weeks before Valentine’s day because they are only around for such a short time. Now, don’t get me wrong, these little gems are good, but if they were always available I think I would pass them by for other candy to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Conversation hearts are another example of a candy that I would never buy if they were around all year. I know this for a fact because I used to LOVE Peeps (don’t judge me!) but have you noticed that the folks at the peep factory now come out with a different shaped Peep for almost every major holiday? I haven’t bought Peeps in years because they aren’t as exciting anymore.
There is one treat that I could stand to have around all year and would consume in mass quantities and that is Samoa Girl Scout Cookies. Coincidentally it’s almost cookie season and you can find where to buy these little pieces of heaven on earth here.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
P.S. In case you were wondering, Colin is still sooo cute!
