Lilian at DVerse Pub sets out a challenge to use two candies listed (or perfumes or cereals– you choose which list).  Use the names as words in a poem.  So I couldn’t resist.  I love Jan’s hilarious mob haikus which may have also influenced me.

love the Retro Candy site, especially seeing candy by decades. Did you know Butterfinger has been around since before the 1920s? Which do you think originated in the 1930s: 3 Musketeers or Baby Ruth?
They’ve been growing these hand-picked beans on the lava rock slopes of Kona since the early 1800s.  Coffee grown on other parts of Hawaii is Hawaiian coffee.  It has to be grown on Kona to be Kona coffee.
