Man, I'm addicted, but not to sour candy. Can't stand that stuff. Me? I like Swedish Fish. I can eat as many as are put in front of me.

I'm currently hooked on peanut butter cups. I used to have a bad Mounds problem though. Let the jokes begin. :roll:

The only sour candy I really like is Zots. They are damn near impossible to find though.

But I was very much bothered with my work!

The other candy I'm addicted to is this hard licorice that is sold in Scandinavia called Tyrkisk Peber. You can find it in the states, but rarely. Among its many potent ingredients is ammonium, and it will clear your nasal passages like nothing else.

I like stuff with fruit and nuts -- Raisinettes, Boston Baked Beans (which are in fact packaged in Canada?), etc. Mild sweetness. Dark chocolate is beautiful too -- 65% cocoa, hell yes. Ginger candy is nice too. If you can find the Ginger Altoids around, those are tasty...

My brother works at the place that makes abuncha the Willie Wonka stuff...Runts, Nerds, Pokies, Gobstoppers, etc. Yes, there is such a place! The Oompa-Loompas are little old Assyrian women these days. We used to live together and he'd smell terrible when he got home; all sickly sweet and reeking of fake fruit scents. Cured my sweet tooth pretty quick. He does have a Gobstopper as big as a basketball though, which is pretty cool...
I thought this club was for musicians. Who let the drummer in here??

I think my tastebuds were permanantly damaged after I ate 100+ Atomic Fireballs that I bought at Sam's Club. I think it only took me about a week to eat them, so that's about 15/day.

Oh, man--curing my sweet tooth is one of my biggest challenges. I do like the swedish fish, but also the spearmint leaves. Chocolate-wise I love Fannie May Trinidads--I was majorly bummed when the Fannie Mays closed down here in Chicago.

The ginger Altoids never did much for me, tell the truth. Sorry.

Got a bunch in my freezer too, but I really prefer the Frango mints that I've got in there. Especially the dark chocolate ones.

Actually, I've had clients write songs about my obsession with Skittles.

Almond Rocca lasts about as long as a '59 Strat at a garage sale does around here.
