If you were buying candy and you had your choice of the following, which one would you choose?

2. 3 MUSKETEERS
3. BUTTER FINGER
4. SNICKERS
5. HERSHEY’S
6. ALMOND JOY
7. CLARK BAR
8. GOOD’N'PLENTY
9. ENERGY BAR

OK — Now that you have chosen, here’s what research says about you: Don’t scroll down until you’ve made your choice!

No, you can’t change your mind once you scroll! So think carefully!


BABY RUTH - Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all warm fuzzy items. A little nutty. Sometimes you need a little treat like an ice cream cone at the end of the day.

3 MUSKETEERS - You are adventurous, love new ideas, are a champion of underdogs and a slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up, you whip out your saber.

BUTTER FINGER - Smooth articulate, you are an excellent after-dinner speaker and a good teacher. But don’t try to walk and chew gum at the same time.

SNICKERS - Fun-loving, sassy, humorous. Everyone enjoys being around you. But you are a practical joker–others should be cautious in shaking hands!

HERSHEY’S - Romantic, warm, loving. You care about other people and can be counted on in a pinch. You tend to melt and get gushy if held too close.

ALMOND JOY - Sexy, always ready to give and receive, very energetic, and really like to get into life. The opposite (or same) sex is always attracted to you.

CLARK BAR  - You like sports, whether baseball, football, basketball, or soccer. If you could, you would like to participate, but enjoy watching sports. You don’t like to give up the remote control.

GOOD’N'PLENTY - You are a very fun loving person, who likes to laugh. You are fun to be with. People like to go to the movies with you. Children find you amusing. You are a very warm hearted person.

ENERGY BAR - You are very active. You are so active, life is passing you by. Get a life!!!! Go eat a plum.

CHOCOLATE COVERED RAISINS - You go to the bathroom often.

 

 

Ever wondered how Gum was made? And from what? And how much your head weighs (with hair of course)?

Licorice: (Liquorice) (Glycyrrhiza glabra) - What is it?

Licorice is a botanical, a shrub native to southern Europe and Asia, the roots of which have two primary desirable qualities: first, some varieties of licorice root are fifty times sweeter than sugar and may be chewed or eaten as a sweet and making it a useful component of candies and flavorings; second, licorice has been for thousands of years sought after for its reputed medicinal qualities. Licorice grows wild in southern central Europe and Asia. It is used for its roots and its rhizomes (underground stems). Glycyrrhizic acid is extracted from the root and used as a flavoring in food, tobacco, alcohol, and cosmetics.

TESTIMONIALS!!

Dear Sugar Mountain,

I really enjoyed my visit to your store, and thought you had even a better selection of British candies than my local shoppe. I wanted to bring my kids to your store, but first I will have to see how many I have.

Cheers,
Mick Jagger.


Dear Sugar Mountain,

Please keep me abreast of your latest goodies.

Thank you,
Wonder Woman.


Dear Sugar Mountain,

AAAAAYYYYYY.
Arthur 'The Fonz' Fonzerelli


Dear Sugar Mountain,

We just wanted to tell you that, like, you're the best!! We, like, love coming to your stores, and, like, really want you to open up locations in, yikes, every scary haunted town in the U.S. so we can come in all the time. Popeye candy sticks, Curly Wurlys, and Power Poppers can, like, rival the best pizza and giant sandwiches out there, and Daphne just can't gobble enough of all your licorice flavours.

Stay cool,
Shaggy and Scoob.

P.S. We recently bought some, like, Zoinks!, chocolate-covered bugs, but have been too chicken to eat them yet - we'll let you know how, like, it goes.


Dear Sugar Mountain,

I just wanted to thank you for the donation of green candy for my graduation party (Stress Management 101). It made me very happy. Then it made me very green. Then I wasn't happy. If I ever get my hands on you, I'll rip your $#%&*@ heads off!

Sincerley,
The Incredible Hulk.
