End Of The Candy (For Now)

Well, Easter has come and gone again. Which is not particularly a good thing for me. The Easter Bunny's annual visit, as always, signals the end of Candy Season.

The leftover Easter candy is quickly disappearing from the shelves, as the stores are quickly replacing them with items for the pool and beach. And I have never really bought into the whole "fun in the sun" idea. I would much rather the temperature stay below 25 degrees Celsius -- or if you prefer the Fahrenheit scale, that would be 77 degrees.

In other words, it's the start of a long dry spell. Other than some specially wrapped Hershey's Kisses or packages of red, white, and blue M&Ms, you don't see much in the way of Independence Day candy. Memorial Day isn't a particularly good holiday for candy consumption, either. As a matter of fact, both of those holidays seem more geared toward cookouts.

Well, I have heard of a few limited editions that should be released in the next few months. (One of them should have already hit the shelves, and I'm a little irritated that I haven't seen it yet.) And I'm hoping that M&M/Mars will have something in the way of a movie tie-in, as they have for the past few years. If they do, I'm really hoping that they will be doing some tie-in promotions with Green Lantern.

Other than that, what I will be looking forward to is the beginning of the back-to-school season. Once the notebooks, backpacks, pens, pencils, and paper begin making their way to the shelves, it won't be long before the beginning of another Candy Season.
