My visit with Krampus was so much fun, it made my too small heart a few sizes bigger. I'm feeling less Grinchy today, so I thought I'd share one of my favorite holiday treats with you.
Every holiday has it's staple foods. Deserts and candy that mark the holiday. Halloween has things like Candy Corn, which by now you know I think is TERRIBLE. But there is one thing I adore about Christmas/Yule/whatever you wanna call this holiday and that thing is CANDY CANES!
I FRIGGEN LOVE CANDY CANES! They are a party in my mouth. A party made of so much win Chuck Norris would be jealous and try to punch it's face.
Thankfully Chuck doesn't know about my love of Candy Canes. But I will share my secret with you. I suppose they made Candy Canes to make up for all the other crap they make us endure for the holidays. Halloween has so much cool shit they had to balance it out by making Candy Corn awful. So if my half-baked, sugar-high-induced theory is correct, Candy Corn and Candy Canes are sacred foods of balance. They keep the Universe together. The "FORCE" is strong because these things exist. They are ying and yang...
AND SO FRIGGEN NOMMY! I love the Peppermint ones and the fruity ones, and all sorts of flavors of Candy Canes! I haven't found a bad Candy Cane, and alternately, I have never found a GOOD Candy Corn. Coincidence? I think NOT!
I'm now gonna go have a sugar coma.
