I can think of very few things that are more irresistible to me than GIANT bins full of candy. But somehow the thought of $7.99/lb for CANDY has been enough of a deterrent that I've never really allowed myself to indulge the way I would like to. BUT...guess what!! If you only get 2 or 3 of one kind of candy instead of a WHOLE POUND, it's not that expensive.
Today, we had lunch at CENTRAL MARKET which is such an amazing place to eat.
It's a grocery store with a HUGE restaurant/deli and you could literally go there everyday and never eat the same thing twice. I had a tomato, mozzarella, basil sandwich....YUM! They had samples of black bean tamales, though, which were UNBELIEVABLE, so we'll be going back SOON!
After lunch, we needed something...not anything BIG...just a little bite of something SWEET. So guess what we did!! We wandered over to the CANDY BINS. And we walked out with 4 little bags of a few different kinds of candy and spent less than $2.00!!
Wanna know what I got???
I am a GUMMY CANDY FREAK...seriously! Not like gummy bears or frogs, or those yucky gummy hamburgers, or....ew... gummy root beer bottles, but the good kind...like SOUR PATCH KIDS! This is a fancy grocery store, though, so they didn't have any of those.
So instead, I got 6 gummy pink grapefruits...
And a handful of gummy peaches...
and I'm not a huge chocolate fan, but every now and then I need a little chocolate fix...so I got 5 chocolate covered mini graham crackers...
I also went a little daring and got dark chocolate covered ginger...but it was GROSS!
I LOVE choices and I LOVE candy and I LOVE inexpensive...so this was one of those little things that turned an ordinary day into a blissfully happy day. I look forward to going back and trying lots of other little bites of CANDY BIN "yummy-ness"...oh, AND the black bean tamales!
