The word PEZ comes from the German word for peppermint, which is Phefferminz. If you take the first, middle and last letter of the word you get PEZ. PEZ was Invented in 1927 in Vienna, Austria by a candy man named Edward Haas. Developed as an adult breath mint and an alternative for smoking, Edward Haas created the Haas Food Manufacturing Corporation based out of Vienna, Austria.

So today when one of our top writer Heather Blanchette said to me you should write about Movie Candy, I said to myself thats a great idea, I’m glad I thought of it! People are always complaining how going to the movies is to expensive, and how they remember when movie pictures were only 10 cents for an all day marathon! Well I hate to be the one to inform the older generation, but it is 2008 and actors and actresses are making 20 million a picture, so sorry Grandma!

If you had asked me a few days ago which fast food restaurant is my favorite, I would have said Chick-fil-A, hands down. However, as of yesterday, I’m feeling a little guilty about my answer.

I’m sure most of you, aside from Jordan who has apparently been living underground his whole life, have eaten at a Chick-fil-A. You know how good their waffle fries taste, you wonder about the necessity of the strategically placed two, not three, pickles on the chicken sandwich and you ogle at the huge, delicious shakes (yet often choose not to order them because you feel guilty holding up the line for twenty minutes while the underpaid seven year old behind the counter makes it).

So what is it about the little bite size sugar infused goodness that is a Skittle?  Well the biggest thing I can say about this little piece of heaven is that there is a Skittle for every kind person.  You have the Original Skittles which are for your average sugar addict, which screams “Hey I like flavor just as much as the next guy or girl, but I’m happy just being original!”  Then you have your Sour Skittles that are so good that they make your tongue go numb and feel like sandpaper.

Butterfinger

Butterfinger has been around since 1923!  Any candy bar still in demand since the 1920’s is only popular because it is quality.  I remember growing up and sneaking to the TV when my parents weren’t looking to catch Bart Simpson with his Butterfinger and skateboard.  This type of Butterfinger activity has gone on for generations.  The truth is, no matter how you think of candy, Butterfinger truly is one of the lasting and truly great candies of all time.

You can do anything with a Butterfinger… well, just about anything.  Eating it plain is great.  If you are the creative chef, you can crunch it up and mix it with almost any dessert (all kind of cakes, cookies, ice cream, etc.)  It can serve as toppings, it can also jut be decoration.
