The Candy Man

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned my dad’s glorious candy drawer on more than one occasion here at whoorl. Earlier this week, I received the greatest honor imaginable when my father asked me to accompany him on a candy-drawer-stocking expedition to the grocery store. I jumped at the chance to learn proper candy-stocking skills from the master. How does he do it? Are his purchases off the cuff or does he employ a systematic thought process? THE QUESTIONS.

A thought crossed my mind. I bet 6 of my readers would find a documentary completely riveting!

This video is for you, 6 people of the world.

Warning: This is 4 minutes and 55 seconds of your life that you will NEVER get back. Think about it.

    That was a lot of fun. I agree with many above, I need my own candy drawer – something I’m going to instigate when we move next week (lots more drawer space in the new house).

    I find The Candyman’s glasses completely riveting.

    That was THE CUTEST. I love your dad. And his most excellent candy drawer.

    I especially enjoyed the typed captions reinforcing his points.

    Happy Father’s Day to the Bishop. Would this be a bad (but bad in a good way) time to disclose that I work in the confectionery/candy industry? ;)

    Loved it!

    If you are ever inspired to buy the Dum Dums send be the Bubble Gum flavor– it’s the only one my daughter likes!

    And now I need a candy drawer…

    My five year old just said “This whole movie is about buying candy?” Then he laughed uncontrollably for a good 3 minutes. Then wanted to watch it again.

    My kids were drawn to this like moths to a flame. They were sitting on my lap asking me all sorts of questions. Who is that? Who is that candy for? and the like.

    I love it. Will never have to wander the candy aisle at Target in a state of dazed confusion again. You (and your dad (and your dad’s adorable glasses)) rock.

    His candy drawer must be HUGE! More like a candy pantry.

    That was hysterical. Thank you for posting such a cute Friday treat–and clearly it appealed to more than 6 of us!
