Jolly Ranchers (why not?)
Speaking of candy, it's getting close to Halloween. Any Trick or Treaters out there? What kind of treat do you hope for when you knock on someone's door? I wouldn't complain if someone gave me some Jolly Ranchers, just sayin'.
My fondness of Jolly Ranchers started pretty early in life. My 3rd Grade teacher kept a big jar of Jolly Ranchers in her classroom, and she would give out pieces to students for different reasons. If you did a good job of reading something aloud to the class, or answered a difficult question, maybe she would give you one. She would always give you one if your voice was hoarse, that's how I got my hands on one.
Giving away candy was nice of her, but she also dumped my desk out in front of the class because it was messy. That was probably the most traumatizing event of my younger years.
That about sums it up, feel free to share your favorite (or least favorite) Jolly Rancher flavor or product. I like all flavors, but Cherry is probably my favorite.
Fun Fact: Jolly Rancher is currently owned by Hershey's.
Fun Fact #2: Hershey's was founded in 1894.
