Hello Lover

I'm addicted.


I'm addicted to the simplistic joy that a tootsie roll surrounded by fruity, hard candy can bring. I realize that these beauts aren't the newest, hippest candy around. I used to eat them as a kid on occasion, but never to the extent that I do now. I've recently rediscovered these precious gems and I can't tell you how much I look forward to eating one or two......okay, maybe five, a day. Seriously, I'm not even bull skatin'. I eat these pops one right after the other, like they were potato chips.

Our school has a snack stand for students in the afternoon and who do you think is the FIRST in line, waiting for her Tootsie Roll Pop?! Yep. Move over Billy. Watch out Sara Beth. I need my POP!


So there ya have it. I'm a pretty simple girl.

That little stick of goodness is my drug of choice these days.


What's yours?

Vicodin. You dont suck them as long, and they don't have a chewy center, but they're pretty damn good.

;-)

Yeah. Like my wife would let me have a drug habit.

Raisinettes, please.

Before all my dental problems - I was a HUGE Tootsie Pop (chocolate - yum!) fan & also a Blo-Pop fan!!! That was my treat through the day at work....now, with my teeth being all jacked up - I've been addicted to chocolate chips - straight from the bag!!!!

I feel your pain. My personal poison du jour is the red velvet cupcake, courtesy of Sprinkles Cupcakes in Dallas. It's a bit of a concern (not just on the caloric front), since I don't actually reside in Dallas, but I'm sure that can be arranged.

Hollie, I wanted to ask you...

I love tootsie pops! They bring back so many memories bc when I was little there was a "sucker man" at our church. Every Sunday after the service he would walk around the parking lot and give all the kids tootsie pops. I just might have to go get one for old times sake!

I love sour patch kids and starburst jelly beans right now. They are so addicting!

I love tootsie pops! I haven't had one in forever, but I'm thinking I may have to make a stop during lunch for one now. Mmm I can already taste them. My faves are the rasberry and blueberry! Perfection.

Yuuuuuuuummmm I love Tootsie pops! My "crack snack" is any form of potato chip. I'm a complete sucker for them.

Lianna Knight said...

Hershey's Kisses!! I always have a bowl of them on my counter in the kitchen...I love to change them out when they get the new colors in for each season. Right now I have gold, brown and silver...but after a few days they'll be GONE!!

Britni and Justin said...

The small reese's cups. I know there really isn't much difference, but I prefer the bite size ones over the regular.

Jenni Jiggety said...

I recently ate an entire box of Gobstoppers. Yum.

MiMi said...

My latest craving is Candy Corn mixed with salted peanuts! I have never even liked candy corn before and one of my co-workers told me that if I mixed them with salted cocktail peanuts that it tastes just like a PayDay candy bar! Sure 'nuf! ....2 bags of candy corn and 1 can of lightly salted peanuts later...I'm hooked!

Just can't understand why I don't seem to lose any weight ?!?!?!
