Candy Heaven: My Trip to the WarehouseThursday, January 19th, 2006 by Jon Prince
Yes candy lovers, that’s right! I got to visit the warehouse where all the wonderful candy is received, stored, packaged, and then sent out into the world. It all started Monday morning. Since I didn’t have any classes to attend, it was a good day to go. When I first walked in, I met all of the very lovely women who work there answering phones and putting data into the computers. Then we went into the first room. On the right were tables filled with packages ready to be sent out. To the left was the first of many larges rooms filled to the brim with candy. It was like walking into my favorite dream. Candy all around me! M&M’s, gummy worms, Reese’s, and boxes of every candy imaginable surrounded me!
Next I went to the basement where there were boxes of Jelly Beans on every shelf! It was incredible. There were enough Jelly Beans to last a lifetime, and then some! Next we went to the next warehouse just a few steps down the street. Again I was greeted by the sight of thousands of boxes of candy! There was just so much of it! At this point I was given a box to fill with any candy I wanted. Talk about the best dream EVER! I picked out some favorites, as well as some things I have never tried. So in the coming weeks I will of course be reviewing a ton of candy. I’ve already eaten my way through a bag of Hershey Kisses, which I don’t think I need to review. So I’m still deciding what to tackle next, but as soon as I know, you’ll know. So all in all it was probably one of the greatest days ever. You can’t ask for much more than being surrounded by candy!
Until next time, this is Kandy K……stay sweet!!
