purple candy

I hate every variation of purple candy. I find it despicably ugly-tasting. Yes, I just described something as tasting "ugly" and you can't do anything about it.

Getting back to my point. I bought a pack of sweet tarts yesterday from Dollarama (best store ever) and I opened the pack only to find a large number of the candies to be purple (about 30%). Now, this angered me. I paid a good 50 cents (plus tax) for this candy, and I get stuck with half of them tasting ugly.

I wonder why candy manufacturers even bother making purple/"grape" flavoured candies. Who likes them? Grape juice is also pretty bad. The only grape/purple flavoured thing I like, is popsicles. Grape popsicles are good.

(Okay, so I'm writing a post about candy because I've been experiencing some fairly depressing things at my placement. And I needed to get them off my mind for a bit. More on that later.)

You know what i do when i am depressed? i go for a swim, do you know how to swim? if you don't, then i guess you are gonna have to stick with the hot lemon with mint and a spoon of honey.


Dollarama are not the "(best store ever)" they are the cheapest stores ever.

relax, mid terms are coming.

fatty, (yes, you are called fatty from now on), licorice is good only if you're in the mood for it. Who remembers black lollipops? I can't seem to find them these days, but they were the best lollipop flavour.

Anon, first of all, who are you? Second of all, yes I do know how to swim. But I can't exactly jump into any swimming pool considering I need female-only accommodations. And don't challenge me on this dollarama thing! I will squash you.

I did not say jump into any pool, i said "go for a swim" it is your job to find what accommodate you. However if you failed, just drink the magic drink, and do not forget the honey.

The last time i had a good candy and cost me 50 cents was 20 years ago, quality time, goods, people, education is gone my dear free lady.

i am not going to challenging you about Dollarama, i would rather keep my energy for a better challenge if you will. so i can squash you on a better argument, a better topic.

I am a fan. is that okay?!! if you do not want me to post here again i will not.

Anon, of course you can keep commenting and visiting, you are more than welcome :) I was just curious.

And I'm interested in knowing what better argument would you squash me in?

Yaser, I think I agree.

Anon, actually found a monkey riding on a tricycle. That's a little disturbing.

You did not beleive that a monkey can ride a tricycle??

it is okay.

So, next time do not underestimate how other people's sense could do; and believe in it too if you will; as it is just differnt than your sense, it is just different.

Mind you, it also offer quality as i am sure your sense will do offer different quality to your life and to your surrounding.

And also do not underestimate what a monkey can do? :o)

grape juice is pretty awesome. everything natural is awesome. Of course, in its own unique way.

Purple kinda tastes dusty.

Yellow is a crapshoot. You hope it's lemon, but it could be pineapple, or worse, banana. Barf.

Green is the best.
