Resident Candy Blog Aficionado Update

August 11, 2014 by


becca-drozAfter reading the “a bit about Becca our resident candy blogger” bio for the first time in five years, I felt a little embarrassed that that’s what is informing the current candy lovers about their resident blogger. Allow me to quickly catch you up on what I was doing during the five years that I was not writing candy blogs.

Last you heard, I was a sophomore at the University of Colorado in Boulder, beginning to discover myself. Since then, I took two years off of school. I lived in an intentionally community on a small farm in Israel, learning permaculture/small scale farming and sustainable living practices. I served people food in Pittsburgh and in Boulder. I harvested vegetables on an organic farm. I got involved with community initiatives regarding food, gardening, music and open mics along the way, all the meanwhile rock climbing every chance I could get. I transferred to Warren Wilson College near Asheville, NC in 2012 and graduated with a B.A. degree in Outdoor Leadership last May (2014). I just finished my first out-of-college summer job as a field instructor for a wilderness therapy program in North Carolina. I am currently funemployed with infinite worlds of adventure at the tips of my toes.

Candy blogs are a good way for me to remain engaged with consistency while I decide on my next steps, be they in wilderness therapy, urban gardening education, rock climbing, skiing, beatboxing or something else.

I hope you all enjoy reading my blogs, because I enjoy writing them. Take my thoughts, ideas and opinions with a grain of sugar and try the candies for yourself. I hope you find places you agree with me and places that you disagree, and I’m happy to hear about both.

I’ll leave you candy lovers with a quote from the book I am currently reading. He is describing a large arch rock formation in the desert of Utah:

“The Delicate Arch explains nothing, for each thing in its own way, when true to its own character, is equally beautiful… If Delicate Arch has any significance, it lies, I will venture, in the power of the odd and unexpected to startle the senses and surprise the mind out of their ruts of habit, to compel us into a reawakened awareness of the wonderful—that which is full of wonder.”

Welcome to Candy Land

May 26, 2009 by

Candy, it can be chewy or crunch, sour or sweet, gummy or hard, it can be any color, any shape, any thing. I’m Becca, I’m 19 and just like you, I’m a candy lover. I am going to eat, rate, research, and write blogs about candies from to help you decide what candies to buy.

Before I start the candy munching there are a few things that I want to share with you about candy. Throughout my years of candy eating I have learned something that every candy lover should know. Candy is meant to be shared. Along with most things in life, candy is just better when it is enjoyed with others. Candy bags are made as big as they are for a reason, and it isn’t so that you can stuff your face. Share with anyone and everyone, because who doesn’t like candy? This will also make the candy more enjoyable for you personally because instead of gorging yourself, you can enjoy the candy in moderation. Well with that in mind I’m going to start my blogging and I hope that means that you will start your reading of my blogging, and of course munching down on some candy.
