Having said that I’m also not really sure how to deal with simple non-offensive comments either. Things like a simple hello, or hey check out my site too. I will often check out the site but what do I do if that site isn’t really something I’m interested in. I’m not saying it sucks but I just don’t like Hummel figurines.
I’ve decided that I’m going to open comments all of my BLOGs from here on in. I’ll try it out as an experiment. I’m also going to try and be more attentive to the comments and say things to people when they visit. Please keep in mind that I’m a little socially awkward so it might come out a little strange.

Let us not forget that without the Tootsie Roll we wouldn’t have Tootsie Pops.

Also today we posted the link to the great new Candy Map. It only has a few places marked on it so far but I’m pretty sure it’ll fill up fast. If you happen to own or know of a candy sight that should be added let us know.

First of all today is National Chocolate Mint Day. Eating chocolate and convincing yourself that you’re freshening up your breath at the same time. It’s wonderful. I do however always wonder how they came up with this strange combination.
Today is also the anniversary of the day that Cracker Jacks put their first prize in a box. Since then many a joke has been made about what people may find in their box of popcorn and peanut treats, so it’s not only made candy lovers day but helped comedians as well.

And here's some fun facts brought to you by the NCA!
A new national survey available at www.candyusa.org has revealed that on average men shell out $130 each on candy, cards, jewelry, flowers and dates. That's more than double what women commit to spending. By far men are spending the most; yet only receiving 6 percent of all Valentine's Day gifts! Therefore, in honor of Valentine's Day 2007, the NCA has named men "America's Biggest Sweetheart." While men may open their wallets wide on Valentine's Day, NCA's national survey found that it's children who really 'eat up' Valentine's Day, receiving 39 percent of all holiday candy and gifts. The survey also found:
Mothers/Wives give out 33 percent of gifts, receive 36 percent of all holiday gifts
Fathers/Husbands give out 25 percent of gifts, receive 6 percent of all gifts
Grandparents give out 9 percent of gifts, receive 3 percent of gifts
Pets give out and receive only 1 percent of all gifts (I'm sure it's more revieve than give / ED)
A majority of men (53 percent) admit that they lean on friends and family to find the perfect present for their sweetheart while 11 percent look to co-workers, 10 percent ask the cashier and 7 percent consult the World Wide Web.
When it comes to present time, women prefer a gift after a nice dinner, while most men prefer gifts first thing in the morning.
American men and women agree that the most romantic place to share candy is in front of the fireplace.

So what’s the verdict, how are these sweet little puffs of chocolate and peanut butter? Surprisingly tasty. In fact they’re not bad at all, I have to be honest I was expecting to have to force down more than two spoonfuls but I managed the whole bowl with little to no discomfort. The best way to describe them is that they’re like corn pops with a chocolate/peanut butter twist. Yummy!
