He no nuts, he’s crazy!

I am Short Round. The adorable little kid famously known for his role in Indiana Jones and the Goonies.

My sisters always mention that I look exactly like Short Round when I was around that age. And I’ll be truthful, I admit that there is a very strong resemblance. I wish I had a picture of myself when I was younger so I could do a side by side comparison but all my old pictures are at my parent’s house in New York. Perhaps one of these days I’ll be able to get a photo and post it here. Until then, please enjoy the following classic Short Round quotes.

Hey, lady! You call him Dr. Jones!

Hang on lady, we going for a ride!

Indy! Cover your heart! Cover your heart!

I am a Sandy Candy Winner!!

A couple weeks ago I was THRILLED with the news that I was a winner of Sandy Candy! After I had been anxiously awaiting the candy’s arrival it finally arrived on Wednesday which was also the last day before I was moving out of my house in NJ to my house in DE!

sandy candy

Sandy Candy is a new candy invention which is based off the concept of creating sand art (pouring different colored sand in layers into a bottle) but luckily Sandy Candy tastes a lot better then eating sand. Candy Addict just did an interview with the inventor of Sandy Candy, David Klein, who is also the inventor of Jelly Belly! Apparently Sandy Candy was invented by his young daughter Roxy. You can read his blog here, Candy Inventor.

I found this contest at Candy Addict which required me to write a poem about Sandy Candy. Here is the poem that I wrote (I spent about three minutes writing the thing and I don’t concider myself any sort of a poetic person).

Is it candy or is it art?
A question that is asked
Its not often they are combined
But sandy candy is divine!

So many colors
And so many flavors
This is a treat I’d love to try!
I hope at least before I die!

So I’ll make a rainbow
Captured in a tube
Perfect for sharing
For your friends who are caring!

I was afraid to try my Sandy Candy for several days because I was concerned I would try the flavors and immediately feel nauseous from a sugar overload. I also really wanted to be able to share them with people but I do not know a lot of people my age who enjoy shoving pure flavored sugar down their throats. Plus I have been pretty darn busy moving.

This evening I was brave enough to try my Sandy Candy and I am thrilled with the flavors. My pack came with twenty flavors/colors bottles and 50 clear plastic tubes for making Sandy Candy creations in. and for the most part they are very distinct and tasty! The flavors included are Lemon Lime, Wildberry,Fruit Punch, Watermelon, Sweet Lemonade, Cherry Crème, Green Apple, Tangerine, Orange Crème, Wild Cherry, Root Beer, Cotton Candy, Strawberry, Tart Apple, Bubble Gum, Grape, Blue Raspberry and Black Cherry. My favorite flavors are probably wild berry, tar apple, blue raspberry, and grape. I really love that the flavors are strong and many of them are tart so its a much better experience then pouring sugar packets into your mouth. I wish that there were not flavors that repeat themselves like green apple and tangerine or sweet lemonade and lemonade. But I am impressed with 20 different flavors (there are even MORE flavors available then that!)
This product would be perfect for fundraisers, birthday parties, and as a carnival booth. I wouldn’t recommend the pack of 50 to people over 20 who do not have very many friends =P.

Snap! Crackle! Pop!

It has been a while since I last updated. To make amends for that, I bring you pictures! I should have done this earlier since my birthday was weeks ago but my camera was out of batteries and I kept forgetting to get new ones. So without further ado, I present to you a gift that one of my friends got me for my birthday.

As you might have guessed, that is a rice crispy treat in the shape of Mickey Mouse that my friend bought for me from Disneyland. And yes, it was delicious.

An Adventure to Great Adventure!

Yesterday my boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Six Flags Great Adventure! We had a lot of fun together riding the coasters and felt nostalgic riding the merry-go-round.


The only thing that I found pretty disappointing was the new roller coaster “The Dark Knight” that happened to be celebrating its grand opening yesterday. The line was quite long and we had no idea what it actually was other then it was a coaster since it was all indoors. We waited in the long line which was semi-entertaining once we got into the building (which was WAY too air conditioned) since they showed a video clip that told the story which was supposed to explain how we were escaping Gothem City or some business. There was also a video screen which showed the faces of the people waiting in line and would put digital joker masks over peoples faces when you looked straight into the camera. Anyway, after standing in line forever we got onto the ride not knowing what it was going to be like and as soon as the the car entered the dark coaster room I was pissed! This was not some AWESOME UNIQUE NEW COASTER it was that same annoying whip-lash coaster that can be seen at many other amusement parks and boardwalks that I know as the Crazy Mouse ride. The best roller coasters of the day were Nitro and Superman.

We made a stop at one of the candy shops and I purchased a whole bunch of delicious candy!

Trolli Sour Bombers- These are quite tasty. They are slightly firmer to Welch’s Cherry Fruit snack but a very similar taste and shape. They have a sour liquid cherry burst that gives them a nice sour cherry burst.

Twizzlers Rainbow Twists- I am currently snacking on these but I am not thrilled by them. I have read a couple reviews of them on candy blogs (which I read all the time) and I knew that they did not get great reviews but I wanted to try them for myself since I love the pretty colors. They are not as sweet and fruity as regular Twizzlers are and the flavors are very artificial tasting.

Sour Punch Straws Blue Razamatazz (4.5oz package) and Chargin Cherry (2 .90z straws) – Sour Punch Straws are probably my favorite candy ever but they are kind of hard to find. They have the perfect combination of chewiness (but not too chewy like Sour Patch Kids tend to be), fruitiness, and sour kick. I have never had the blue razamatazz flavor before and it has a little too much blue berry flavor for my taste but they are still yummy. The chargin cherry is always a tasty treat with lots of flavorful cherry taste.

Anyway we had a great day at Six Flags thanks to my boyfriend for taking me!

I can cry if I want to

On this day, a great man was born in this world. The person I am talking about is none other than myself. I don’t mean to brag but I’m awesome. Probably, no, most likely, no, definitely more cooler than you. I have been working on a different post for a few days now but I feel that I must dedicate this day to me. So I’m wishing myself a happy birthday. I expect many presents in the mail.

Holy crap I’m old!
