Candyfreak: A Journey through the Chocolate Underbelly of America by Steve Almond
Candyfreak: A Journey through the Chocolate Underbelly of America

martinkato, August 30, 2006

Steve Almond takes us on a sweet ride to rediscover every American's childhood obsession. Doesn't each of us have at least one happy long ago moment in which CANDY played a pivotal role (ok, at least a walk-on role)? Aren't we all a bit reluctant to admit that we still love candy, conditioned by dentists, parents and authority figures to think CANDY = DECAY + OBESITY? Only a self-described ecto-morph like Almond would dare to reveal that he never outgrew his obsessive reverence for CANDY and celebrate it!
