I want CANDY!!!

Candy is a beloved treat in our home. So what better place to visit than a candy factory. Well, that's just what we did this morning. My good friend Mel invited us to join them on the tour that they had booked at Sweet's Candy factory a while ago. I'm so glad she did because it was so much fun (and Yummy)!

We saw how jelly beans were made, how the molds were made for the cini bears & gummy candies, how taffy is made (they whip not pull - who knew?), and how they stretch and package their taffy. It was pretty cool. Even though the chocolate waterfall conveyer belt was broken (booo), it rocked. Especially since we got to try fresh gumdrops from the line (they were still warm!), jellybeans before they had their hard shell on (they were so SOFT!!!), fresh saltwater taffy from the cutting table, and all the free candy offered in the candy store. Trust me, my kids are on a MAJOR sugar high right now. Even better - it was FREE!!!

So that totally sounds like something we should do again when we are all together for Christmas, because Christmas and candy go hand in hand. Who's with me?
