And Cotton Candy, Too!

After reading about the fact that we now have jet fighters "escorting" planes into US airspace, I was worried about what kind of world I was bringing a child into. Then I went to Elmer's for lunch, had a "country cousin" skillet, fought back my heart's desperate attempt to seize up, and rummaged through the DumDum bin at the checkout. I nearly went for my usual cherry DumDum until, begorrah!, I noticed a chocolate one. Wow. I don't think we had chocolate DumDums when I was a kid.

In fact, a quick check of the DumDum homepage tells me chocolate is a new flavor, and I should probably make sure to vote for it a few times to make sure it sticks around. I'm also voting for the eventual inclusion of banana, lemon, and cherry cheesecake.

"Mystery flavor" can burn in hell. And I love my wife, but her love of watermelon flavored DumDums is just sick and wrong. Watermelon-flavored candy of any kind is pretty much an abomination. Disagree? Watermelon Hubba Bubba. I rest my case. Eew.


Dude, watermelon Jolly Ranchers are forever.

I dunno, man. All watermelon and most artificial grape flavors either burn the back of my throat or make my teeth hurt. Bad.
