First, I had to offer up a candy and a chocolate I would've been caught consuming back in the day. Always falling victim to cute packaging or a clever gimmick, I commented about my fondness for candy jewelry, which was probably highly influenced by my fashionable Nanny (my dad's mom). She is no longer around, but I still think of her whenever I see a pack of Junior Mints (my chocolate pick).
As for how I am consuming chocolate today, you all know how difficult that is for me to narrow down. Since I've been trying to clean up my diet a bit lately, I went with adding it to fruit-based smoothies and puddings. It only tastes like I'm being bad.
Speaking of fruit and candy necklaces, here is my updated version of the fashionable fare. I just strung some grapes onto some dental floss to wear around my neck. This also could be done with other berries or multi-colored dried fruit, otherwise known as "nature's candy" :-)
