Candy is good for your health

I was at the store this morning and decided to cruise down the Valentine's candy aisle to see what might make it into my cart. I know Brie mentioned she wanted to give some candy to a few friends so I decided to grab a big bag of Skittles and Starburst. They are favorites in my house so I figured there would not be any left over for long. I also got a bag of chocolate hearts for the house.


I was unpacking the bags from the grocery store when something on the bag caught my eye.

I had to do a double take when I saw that it said that the candy was an "excellent source of Vitamin C". Huh??? So then the girls got home from school and immediately asked if they can have some. I said no. They had the audacity to say "But it's healthy and we can never get enough Vitamin C!" All I could do was laugh. Darn kids.

  2. That's just crazy! Manufacturers will declare anything these days to push their product.

  3. It's like the Country Crock vegetable spread that advertises its spread as a good source of calcium and Vitamin D. I'm like, "Really? I can think of items that are a better source of vitamins than fake butter."

    Yet, I still bought it. LOL
