With Halloween coming up, it’s no surprise that candy’s on everyone’s mind. Oh, candy. Miracle bites of joy and bliss. What would we ever do without it? It’s our rock, our stronghold, the anchor to our busy, stress-filled college lives. Whether it be popping a few Skittles in our mouth before the grind of the next three-hour lab or chomping up colorful sour worms during a marathon study session, candy is an integral part of our lives, whether we admit it or not. We at the Clog know you secretly spend your free time pondering just which type of Halloween candy you are (it’s OK, it’s nothing to be ashamed of).
