The Halloween candy is being loaded into stores by the pile. Is it too early for candy corn? For me…yes. Too late, too early…doesn’t matter. I hate candy corn. And dum-dum lollipops (too small…what a waste of a stick). BUT, that is about the only thing I don’t like about Halloween. Favorite holiday, hands down.… Continue reading A Little Wicked
