If you're looking for something to do today then break out that Halloween candy stash because it's National Candy Day!  Oh yes... it's time to start bouncing off that walls!  So let's get right into celebrating National Candy Day!


Well, besides the fact that almost everyone loves some type of candy and that sugar is addicting... I mean, do you really think it's that "easy" to take candy from a baby? NO! They're going to cry their head off! But think about what time of year it is... Halloween was just a few days ago! That's right; you've got a whole stash of sugary goodness and maybe today should be the day that you binge on it a little. I mean, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and then you get hit with Christmas, so you don't really need to hang onto all that candy forever!  So what do you think makes candy... candy? If you said sugar, then that's pretty much it! Why would I say such a thing? Because the word candy comes from the Persian word Qandi which means cane sugar. And a lot of candy is made by dissolving sugar into water or milk and then cooking it up into some type of syrup. And the longer you cook it the more concentrated with sugar it will be. And, if you stay below 310 degrees, things get even harder as the heat rises. Like a hard candy; it's solid when cooled and is pretty much 100% sugar.

But there are so many different types of candy out there like toffee, caramel, fudge, taffy, licorice.... should I keep going? OK! Candy bars, gumdrops, lollipops, candy canes, cotton candy and tons and tons of other types of sugary treats. You're not limited on selection but this celebration should be limited to just today. Why?  Because I have a feeling a lot of you are going to go a bit overboard!


So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, why don't you start out with that Halloween stash? Go through and eat everything that you think tastes awesome and pop the rest into a bowl at work or home. Yeah, you're helping others celebrate, but they don't get the good stuff! And before you experience a lovely sugar crash, you might want to think about the next step of your celebration.  In fact, a lot of you might not have gotten any candy for Halloween, so this is where your celebration will begin... Head on over to a candy store or the candy aisle in your grocery store! You're going to be confronted with so much sugar that you can almost smell it as you walk by shelves full of sweet treasures. You know what you like, so start tossing it into your shopping cart!  But would you like to have a little fun with your celebration? Then stock up on all kinds of different candy; the good stuff, the weird stuff and the stuff you know sucks. Then get together with a bunch of friends and you can take turns blindfolding each other. Why? Because the blindfolded person has to try to guess what it is that they are eating. If they guess correctly then they get another piece or two of that exact candy, dropped into a bag for them. If they guess incorrectly then a piece of candy must come out of their bag.  Have a great day and don't tell your mom that I said you could have candy!
