Candy update

I neglected to mention the title of the candy book I received. It is Candy The Sweet History. One of the highlights of the book is great images within, which you cannot tell from the lame cover. The author is interviewed on NPR here. While we are talking candy and NPR, here is a story on candy corn.

Looking for the Amazon link I found this other history of candy that looks good as well. This book mentions a 19th century candy called Kelly in a Coffin, which was a little candy corpse in a little candy coffin. A little something for the Edward Gorey fans.
