I remember Halloween growing-up for two distinct dramatic events: one was the year my friends came hours late to pick me up for Trick or Treat and I sat on the front stoop waiting in my little princess costume feeling terribly sad (Ok, maybe I was dressed as a hobo - but I had the heart of a princess damn it! And I was distraught!) And the second Halloween drama would happen each year after Trick or Treat when we would gather up all of our treats and bring them to the hospital to have them x-rayed for fear that pins of razor blades had been surreptitiously placed inside a Snickers or a Mars bar. I am sorry...did ANYONE else do this?!
I think partially because of this I am not a a big fan of sweet things in general but I am a big fan of bright and bountiful nostalgia with cool graphics! Well, and I Do eat sweets sometimes and then I seek the perfect sweet, in the perfect place. Economy Candy on the Lower East Side has been serving the
dental community since 1937.

Zimtschnecken waiting to proof. In English: cinnamon snails. How lovely and true! Call it what it is: we are a sticky semi-sweet cinnamon snail that will sneak up on you. Yeah! There is a hot kick. Welcome small shelled creatures!!

I was struck (no pun intended, but hell, yes!) by the image on the Band-Aid container! Minnie is "Smacking" Micky (or vice versa?) ...obviously these Band-Aids are geared towards children. So who am I to say? But someone is beating someone up!
I need a Band-Aid.
