My grandparents owned a confectionary when my mom was growing up, she soon became sick of candy, but her friends sure made it known that they still enjoyed the sweets.
I am diabetic so I stay away from sweets. I know there are folks who give themselves treats now and then and counter them with activity or balance out other foods through the day, but I'm an all or nothing kind of gal so I can't handle the "maybe I'll have just one" thing - so I avoid them altogether. Sometimes I dream of gorging on sweets, chocolates and Christmas cookies and squares, but I always wake up in a panic - surprisingly I can even taste them in my sleep.
Oh sweet chocolate memories at last I've found thee - aw aw aw aw.
