Renegade Chef: Christmas candy conundrum
I have been wondering for a long, long time: Whatever happened to the magic of Christmas candy? Where did it go?
It seems, these days, holiday treats are pretty much the same thing we get every other day of the year. The big candy conglomerates have tricked us into thinking Snickers, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey’s Kisses are extra special simply because they are festively wrapped for the holiday season. Unwrapped, this candy might as well be left over from Halloween.
