A Haiku or Two, on Candy

November  1, 2014

Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats.


Shop the Story

when i go hiking,
my favorite energy bar
is a big snickers


Post trick-or-treat trades:
Always hard to find the chump
To take the Whoppers.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.

Candy is my love
But not halloween candy
Too much chocolate

No trick or treaters
Means I get all the candy
For all of the days

Halloween candy
Jumpy jitter sugar buzz
Belly needs real food

Spent all of today
swiping from my daughter's stash.
Rite of parenthood!

Sarah I will take
Your whoppers and give to you
White chocolate and some Skittles

Looks like I can't count
White chocolate and some Skittles
Is seven not five
