It starts out in February candy shaped like hearts and big boxes of chocolate how could one not–like candy. Valentine is truly love.

Then along comes Easter, oh what fun baskets filled with big chocolate bunnies, little chocolate bunnies and marshmallow eggs. There’s just so much to choose from how could one not-like candy.
Ah, but the best of all is that one time in the year when you actually are given a ‘big’ bag to go around to everyone’s house you know and knock on their door, boldly hold out your bag while they drop in loads of candy. All different kinds. Yes how could one not-like candy. The biggest night of all Halloween.

To finish off our year we spend a few days in the kitchen to help make all these treats for ourselves, friends and teachers alike. Fudges of all kinds, divinities of all colors, whiskey balls, and peanut brittle just to name a few. Yes, sugarplums will definitely dance in our heads. How could one not-like candy. It’s Christmas time.

Yes, you are the reason we like candy. You were created just for kids. Even the name you were given sounds sweet. Holidays! How could one not-like candy!
