The new half mint/half creme Oreos rock! They're kind of like Grasshoppers, but better because you can dunk them in milk (without all that waxy chocolate coating)!

current mood: satisfied

8:40 pm - UPDATE

Hey everyone,

Some people's emails don't work, so here is your chance to stay in the wonderous sugar_shop If you don't respond to this post or the email I will remove you - I only want Serious sugar freaks!!!

Sorry if I sound harsh

Sweet love

Dear All Sugary People,

As you may have noticed I have been on the diet from
the sweetness of sugar shop - there are many reasons
for this ranging from moving house to sheer laziness
and I can do nothing but apologise for this and say
that this will all change....

Firstly I need to carry-out somewhat of an AUDIT - ie.
I need to find out who still wants to participate and
who doesn't - apologies if you left ages ago and the
mailing list hasn't been updated - by not replying to
this email, I'll take you off the mailing list and it
will be the last you will hear from me....

Basically - if you want to exchange with a partner
reply to this email answering the few simple questions
below - if you want to be removed, don't reply in the
next 2 weeks and I'll remove you from the list - no
hard feelings. This is also the chance for you to let
me know any comments about Sugar Shop that you think I
will find useful.

Ok, So here are the questions:

1. Do you want to be matched with a partner now?
2. Which Country do you live in?
3. Do you want to be matched with someone in the same
country as you?

By the way, I've had many complaints from people who
wanted to be matched with someone from another country
- the only problem I have is that the majority of you
sweet guys live in the US and there is an imbalance of
numbers - I'll try my best, but please be patient -
please let me know if you're not too fussed - It makes
my life a whole lot easier.

Welcome back to the sweetness and I look forward to
hearing from you all soon :-)

8:41 pm - Goodies!!!

I got my candy box from sugerfixe today and I just had to gloat a bit!

It has so many many awesome things in it that I've never seen before...

Peachy Penguins - mmmmm

Mary Janes - I am hooked on these now!

some really good coffee hard candies from Holland called "Hopjes"

and a bunch of chololate bars I've only heard of, but never had...

Plus some weird stuff like candy tattoos that you lick off I guess (hmm - could be interesting) and an edible pad of paper and candy bubble blowing fluid!!!

I'll have to bring this into the office tomorrow and get everyone all hyper. Everything came in a really nice shopping bag from "Dylan's Candy Bar" as well.

Thanks again to my buddy sugarfixe for sending such an awesome package!

I received my first box o' goodies from bfm today! As soon as I stepped off the elevator I caught a glimpse of a plain brown box at my door marked "US Customs", I squealed with sugary delight! I felt like Charlie Bucket himself, finding that last golden ticket. I LOVE getting packages, especially when they're full of tooth-decaying-goodness! The box was filled with treats from afar (ok, actually just Canada) including Wine Gums, Smarties (the chocolate kind), Spud Nuts (oh, man!), CoffeeCrisp, & a bunch of Japanese candy in fabulous little packages (I am SO into packaging!)etc, etc, etc. I'm trying my damnedest to save the motherload until tomorrow as I have a friend flying in from the West Coast & we can be hyper & loaded together. I do admit to ripping open (in crack-fiend-fashion) the elusive Crispy Crunch bar. I was not disappointed! Speaking of "crack", the Pachi-Pachi looks amazing & I can't wait to try it. If I had a digital camera I would take a photo & post it but that would just be torture to people who haven't yet received their own brown boxes. For those John Waters fans out there- I am definitely having a "little chrissy" moment! Thanks to bfm for making my weekend a whole lot sweeter!!

1:36 am - A Blast From The Past

Hee hee, I'm all jacked up on a sugar rush. No sleep for me.
I for the first time in years gobbled up two bags of cotton candy. I love the way it just melts on your tounge.
I feel like such a kid. Are't I supposed to have outgrown cotton candy by now??

Also, new discovery, Lifesavers has these new creamsavers chewy candies. They are SO GOOD.

10:10 pm - Hehe cool!


That link is so cool because it leads you to many weird, odd, and crazy novelty candy! There's all sorts of stuff there like Japanese candy, Simpson gel pops, weird gums, lava licks, marshmellow fries, fire ants, pet rats, chocka ca-ca, brains, sandy candy, fish heads, glow pops, fingers and toes, ETC!!!

Lmao I'm not really advertising here, but I just wanted to tell all you candy lovers out there about this site in case you didn't already know about it. Hehe

11:48 pm - I Want To Make Candy

I got this idea form the Food TV Network show World Pastry Cup.
I want to make some "stined glass" candy.
What I need is the proper perportions of suger, corn syrup and water in order to cook it down, then be assured it will harden.
Does anyone know this?

This is what I'd do.
I'd make the candy, add peppermint, or vanilla, or whatever extracts per batch. I would get a few pans and line them with foil, which will be very well oiled to avoid sticking. I would pour the mixture in the pan, but before it hardens, I would add a few drops of assorted food coloring and take a knive, and swirl it around to stain the mixture making a stain glass effect when hardened. When done, just break it up into bite size pieces.

What do you guys think?

8:45 pm - Licorice


What's up with everyone not liking licorice? What is it you don't like about it?

I love all kinds except the licorice all-sorts with the weird icing stuff...

Real, salty black licorice is nice on occasion too...
