I did a poor job of preparing for Halloween this year by not pre-sorting the candy. Normally I will cherry-pick some good stuff and set it aside so if we run short it will still be available to distribute, but this year it seemed like most of it was pretty good stuff so I didn't bother. Now I find myself saddled with the oddly homogeneous leftovers of mostly Skittles and Starburst. I would prefer some other treats to start with, but those two candies in particular are tough for me to get excited about, as back in the days when I worked at MTV we had a couple of occasions when we were given huge boxes of them for free as part of those promotions where you'd win your own town, a new car, and a year's supply of Skittles. Something I learned at that time is that I can't eat too much of that stuff or I get a weird flush from something (probably the sugar, but these are the only candies I've ever experienced this with). The other thing I learned was that Starburst is basically edible Playdough (okay *especially* edible Playdough), so maybe I'll emulate the creativity of the folks from the promo department back in the day and use it for sculpture. Their masterpiece from back in the day was the Starburst Duckbilled Platypus, which I can't believe does not reside in a museum.
