“…but candy is the one that says, `hey, this is a treat’…

Candy, book cover… Candy never says, ‘it’s fiber, it’s vitamins, it’s all natural, it’s good for you. Candy is honest and says, `this is a treat, look at it as a treat, enjoy it as a treat.’ “

I just listened to a Weekend Edition interview with Samira Kawash,┬ádiscussing what many of us have copiously purchased (or eagerly hope to obtain for free) for tomorrow evening. Some of the delightful and surprising comments mentioned are to me evocative of Steve Almond’s Candy Freak, which was a wondrous tour through (and ode to) part of the candy-making world.

The audio of the interview is fantastic; if you have a few minutes, hit the link above and give it a listen!
