Andy's Candy Store

I am Andy; I love candy. I sell candy too. Come and see the many candies that I have for you. You can buy some chocolate in boxes or in bars. Snickers is the very best. Here is one from Mars! You can buy a Baby Ruth or a Milky Way. Try a Pay Day. Here’s a Kit Kat and some Toffifay. Don’t forget Three Musketeers, GooGoo Clusters, and Rocky Road, Butterfingers, and 100 Grand. You might like some Hershey kisses or a Nestles Crunch. Buy some chocolate for your breakfast. Buy some for your lunch. Try Mallow Cups and Almond Joy, and if you’ve got the blues, buy Toblerone or Milk Duds or famous Charleston Chews. Everyone loves M & M’s and Reece’s Pieces too. I am sure I’ve got the perfect chocolate here for you! Here is one that has a malted middle. It’s called Whopper. Jawbreakers are hard to bite. Have you tried Gobstopper? Get some Dots or Junior Mints, Rolos or Big Cherry. Get Goobers for your brother and Nerds for guys named Barry. Get Airheads for your sister and Bull’s Eye for your dame. If you know a Mary Jane, one candy’s got HER name. Many candies come in different flavors. You might like Skittles, Laffy Taffy, famous Mike & Ike, Jelly Bellies, Sour Patch Kids, Sweethearts, and Starburst. Drink them down with juice-filled Nik-L-Nips to quench your thirst! Here are Smarties for your parties, and if you desire, you can buy some Red Hots and feel your mouth on fire! Bottle Caps taste just like pop; root beer ones are yummy. And of course, I’ve got some Bears and squiggly Worms, both Gummy. Some Bit o’ Honey for your money? Everybody licks Sugar Daddys, Tootsie Pops and powdered Pixie Stix. I love Zotz with tangy burst and Pez’s cartoon head. Pop each Pez while on your couch or when you’re tucked in bed! I’ve got Jolly Ranchers, even Candy cigarettes, Razzles, Spree, Circus Peanuts, Chiko- Sticks and let’s not forget exploding Pop Rocks and my Swedish Fish! Try out Necco Wafers and my favorite: LICORICE. You can have it Good n’ Plenty or as a Red Vine. Eat Black Whips or Twizzlers. Any Flavor is divine. I am Andy. I love candy. Who could want for more? Any candy that you want, you’ll find it in my store! (I got carried away and decided to do a tribute to all the many candies I have adored or heard about through my lifetime! Don't know if the poem ended up being much like Dr. Seuss, but I sure enjoyed the inspiration. Wouldn't it be fantastic if we could have a huge store that sold all the candies of our world!?) For Gwen's Dr. Seuss Contest

This is very cute. Though it made me feel hungry for candy, full , and sick just thinking about all that chocolate. I threw out a snickers/ ice cream candy bar cuz it was too sweet. A few weeks ago I threw out ( garbage disposal ) black velvit ice cream. I haven't posted yet. I will by the end of the day :)

Okay, as someone with a HUGE sweet tooth, I LOVE THIS. You mentioned types of candy that I'd completely forgotten about! I adored Rolos as a kid, and Jelly Bellies? Mmm. This brought a huge smile to my face - my favourite line: "Get Goobers for your brother and Nerds for guys named Barry." Hilarious!

A.D. yes you DID get carried away, some of those candies i haven't heard in YEARS, but enjoyed most (though admittedly not much of a Necco fan). I did enjoy your sweet-tooth reminisce. -GG

Wow, Andie, you are the Candy queen! I only recognized half of these candies, guess I am pretty boring when it comes to candy. I like mounds and peanut butter cups and butterfingers. What a fun poem this is. You outdid yourself on this one. Congrats ahead of time for this one is sure to be a winner.

Love this delicious poem so, so, so much. I have eaten, ravenously, all the older names. Used to love Sugar Daddies - chocolate covered caramel, right? Used to buy the king size Hershey bar and eat it all by myself - this as often as I could scrounge up the money. You have touched my soul with this one, dear Andrea. I'm back, at least for a few minutes a day, and will try to catch up on your wonderful poetry. Love, daver

Andrea Andrea Andrea -- Mallow Cups are hard to get in this neck of woods. I could go on about my candy habits. Breakfast, lunch and dinner should suffice. Let me know if Andy opens up a store in Ct. stomache Kathy
