Tuesday Confessional

I won a giveaway a couple of weeks back and got a package with real maple syrup, maple sugar and maple candy. Have you ever had maple candy before? Because

1. it's really good

and

2. it tastes like sucking on a brown sugar cubes, if their was such a thing.

For most people, this may be a little overwhelming in the sugar category. Not for me. And this is where the confession part comes in. . .

When I was in high school I worked at Sylvan Learning Center. (Best job ever, by the way.) In the break room at Sylvan there was a box of sugar cubes for the people (2 (this is Utah, you know)), that drink coffee. On the particularly boring nights (and there were more than a few) I would sneak back into the break room and suck on a couple of sugar cubes.

And the sugar high would not only get me past that incredibly boring last hour, but aid my horrid sleeping habits.

I love sugar a little bit too much.

I have like seven little cavities, says my "prevention-oriented" dentist. Yeah, I guess I like sugar a little too much too. Plus I blame genetics for sad enamel.

Once in high school I lived off of nothing but cotton candy for like a week.

YUP - I think you sound like a sugar junkie. I wonder if they have "meeting groups" for that addiction (tee,hee). I love maple too.
but I tend to lean more towards "salty" things over sugar.

My family bought huge boxes of sugar cubes just for us to snack on when we were kids. No joke. (Obviously we aren't coffee or tea drinkers, so they had no use otherwise.) But I admit that I transferred my love from white sugar to brown sugar. And I DEFINITELY do it by spoonfuls. :)

I love sugar cubes too. And now they just have those gross little packets of Splenda by the coffee machine. Such a cop-out.

Pixie sticks. Dip sticks. Any of these ring a bell for you. Then there were those huge pixie sticks. I never ate one of those. But brown sugar is good. Haha. And Maple candy...yum!

Never enough sugar! Me, the one sitting here with constant canker sores from sugar overload on a daily basis. Sugar's my drug, my past time, my solace.

Gotta find some of that maple candy now...
