My husband and I are slightly obsessed with candy. A few weeks ago, we noticed a specific candy on Candy Blog that was difficult to find in retail stores. This is a frequent occurance on this blog, that I refer to as the "curse of the candy blogger". My husband wrote to the company and asked if they sold their candy at a nearby retail location. They gave us the name of a store and asked for our address.
About a week later, a large package arrived at our door from the candy company. It was filled with about a pound of the candy we wanted to sample, and a whole bunch of other treats they make.
It was the best day ever.
