The Kings of Candyland

Roaming the candy aisle of my neighborhood Safeway around Halloween is a dizzying encounter with choice. Towering stacks of sumptuous sweets glisten under garish tube lights, the seasoned regulars (Twix, Twizzlers) joined by seasonal guests (pumpkin spice Kisses, Spooky Nerds). It’s a paragon of dazzling variety.
