When I got my last haircut, the hair stylist and I talked about our favorite candy. It turned out to be one of the few things we have in common.
For both of us Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are our guilty pleasure. The combination of chocolate and peanuts is irresistible.
Many people share our preference. The Snickers bar is the biggest selling candy bar, and Hershey’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup is number two, according to AskMen.com.
I almost completely stopped eating any candy when I took my diabetes seriously- too much sugar.
That’s why I was so excited to read in an article in diabetes magazine a few month’s ago that there is now a sugar-free version of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. But I looked in vain for it.

Visiting an Adult Day Care Center last year, I observed a group of seniors (with mild dementia) getting ready for their afternoon walk. A lovely lady with the rosiest cheeks and name to match, Rose (80-ish), gushed as she pointed out her new boyfriend to me, whispering about their budding romance and completely giddy about how wonderful he was.Still handsome at 87, Alfred grinned ear-to-ear, tipped his cowboy hat and carefully helped with her coat, all the while gazing lovingly into her aged eyes. I took the time to walk with them, just to be able to savor their joy. It was plain as day that they were as smitten as any teenagers in the first blush of love.I instantly flashed back to the lovebirds of my high school, Tom and Carol, who shared their locker below mine and who were so in love, always leaning against the lockers gazing into each othe...
