When I was a kid, perhaps no dessert excited me more than the Andes Mints some restaurants would serve alongside the bill. Sure, they were available at the candy store and pharmacy pretty much whenever you wanted them, but — at least, in my family — they were never actually purchased, but souped only from dining out and hotel pillows. I’m an adult now, so theoretically I could purchase chocolate mints whenever I want, but I don’t.
Let’s face it: Life would be so much better if we could just sit around all day and eat candy.
But alas, we’ve got to make that money, and having a job kind of gets in the way. Lucky for those that agree with this statement, Mars Wrigley has a seemingly incredible internship that would mean you would never have to separate work and sweets ever again. It’s called the World’s Sweetest Internship, and it’s back for the second year in a row.
Candy thermometers aren’t incredibly expensive. You can buy one for well under $10.
But cost does not equate to import in the kitchen. Indeed, this little gadget pulls a heavy load. If it’s right, your frostings, fudges, and toffees will turn out spectacularly. You may even become famous for them among friends and the office break-room population.
While most brands pump thousands if not millions of dollars into Super Bowl ad campaigns in hope of living on in consumers’ minds as well as the advertising hall of fame, Skittles is taking a different approach once again. This time around the candy brand is foregoing the traditional big-budget 30-second spot for something a little more spectacular: A Broadway musical.
Ring Pops are back, baby! Well, they never actually went anywhere—apparently they’ve been available in stores since they were invented in the late 1970s. But still, I’d be willing to bet most of us haven’t seen one in at least a decade.
Think back on the last time you enjoyed a Ring Pop. If I remember correctly, I was happily wielding one on each finger like a sticky Edward Scissorhands. Those were the days, right?
Praise Britney, because we’re finally able to relive our late ‘90s/early 2000s glory days without the mess.
