Candyfreak by Steve Almond

CandyfreakHow can you not love a book about candy by a guy named Almond? When I first read this book I couldn’t believe how much fun it was. Part personal exploration, part U.S. candy history and part travel diary, Almond draws you in with his humourous take on what candy means to him. Candyfreak contains discussions about the candy he ate while growing up and his quests for great candy. This is not a serious study on the evolution of candy; it’s a love letter to it. Be warned, your sweet tooth will kick in while reading this book. In fact, I had a chocolate craving just from writing this review.
