By Michael FernandezI just want to take a moment to give a shout-out to candy because none of this would have been possible without it. Candy has been there for me in the good times and the bad times, and also in all the times in between. Special mention goes to gummy bears, sour gummies, jelly beans, Nutella, cookies, and s’mores. Ice cream for being there in my sad moments, popsicles for being there to share the happy ones.
We never listened to the haters like broccoli who said we couldn’t make it. I want to thank my organs for somehow supporting my candy diet. You’ve never let me down. We’re in this together. I can’t believe this all started off as a small dream of just eating a candy bar when it grew into so much more – a world full of ice cream sundaes, fudge, cakes, and puddings. You all mean the world to me. Thank you for being there whenever I need you!
