The Top 5 Sour-Sweet Candies

I love sour candy. I love the sour sugar that coats the sweet chewy (sometimes chewy) candy and I love the fruitiness of them. I figured why not write an ode to all of my favorite sour candy throughout my life. There are some people who love overly sour candy (like Warheads), but this is for those sour-sweet candies.

1. Sour Punch Straws

These are the OG sour candies of my life. They’re not too sour to where you can’t handle it, so they’re easy to eat (a little too easy). Every time there was a concession stand, I was buying a pack of sour straws. Also, it’s kind of fun to use them as an actual straw and drink some juice through them.

2. Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers

These are a classic “sour” candy, although they’re more on the sweet side than sour. These were the most popular candy of middle school and if you had them, you were instantly popular (for about 5 minutes).

3. Airheads Xtremes

These are in the same family as sour straws, but these are way sweeter. You can tear them into little strips, suck the sour stuff off first (as I do with all sour candy), or you can just eat it all in one bite. This candy is so popular that you can go to any candy shop and get off brand sour belts for a lot cheaper, although nothing beats the original. [Also check out Airhead Xtremes Sourfuls, they’re amazing]

4. Sour Patch Kids

Obviously, these are on the list. These are bite-sized, perfectly sour and then sweet. The sour doesn’t last that long and you’re greeted with a nice fruity flavor. Plus, super chewy sour candy is amazing.

5. Sour Skittles

A classic candy with a little twist. Although I’ve never really been a skittle fan (crazy, I know), I really enjoy sour skittles. Along with all the other candies on the list, there are multiple flavors so you have a nice variety.

Don’t take my word for these, go out and try them all and rate them yourself. You’ll soon find that love of sour candy that everybody seems to have.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
