MOVEMBER - Support and donate.

I call this my NedMOterhead
(Combination Ned Flanders and Lemmy)
It's DAY 29 of my luxurious ironic Movember mustache. It may look silly, but the fact that 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime is not funny... at all. 
That's why I'm growing this...with Movember Team Austin. I'm trying to get 20 people to be aware and to donate to my Movember page. I've got 10 donations thus far. If you have a buck or five to spare... please donate here:

CANDY REVIEW: Caramel Apple Sugar Babies

Candy Review for O'Ryans Village  

Happy Sugar Babies

Caramel Apple Sugar Babies
5oz Box
22 pieces per service (3.5 servings in box)

They did it. This candy tastes exactly like an inside-out caramel apple. Each one of the Sugar Babies is individually coated with a green candy coating that is flavored like a Granny Smith apple. The inside is the same caramel goodness you expect from Sugar Babies.

Let me tell you how to eat one of these.
1. You put one individual piece in your mouth and roll it around on your tongue. This will wear the candy shell down and release the apple flavor.
2. Then you bite down and “break” the shell (it’s not a hard shell). Be careful not to bite all the way down, you just want to release the inner caramel to meld with the apple flavor.
3. Enjoy until it’s dissolved.

I suggest you eat this way because the alternative of popping a few in your mouth and chewing the candy will make the caramel stick to your teeth and that’s just plain annoying (unless that’s how you roll). Also, eating them individually will make them last longer too.

If you are a fan of the classic caramel apple, you will find happiness in the Caramel Apple Sugar Babies.
