My favorite kind of candy is the gummy kind -- Gummy Bears (Haribo are best), gummy peaches, Sour Patch Kids and Swedish fish (although I don't like how they get stuck in your teeth). Just to prove that there's something for everyone, here's a link to the "world's biggest Gummy Bear"...appropriate for either a sweet-toothed giant or someone who loves to visit the dentist:

However, I'm not as big a fan of people with gummy smiles. That's disturbing.

Happy New Year to everyone -- since I'm on bed rest, my husband and I will be celebrating at home tonight. Wish I had some Gummy Bears, but the peanut butter chocolate cupcakes I ordered will have to satisfy my sweet tooth. No New Year's diet resolutions for me!
