With the tone of the voice in Poltergeist—“they’re heeere…” the grocery store shelves are full of them and have been for weeks! Halloween is only one day, yet candy makes its appearance weeks early, ensuring those little “fun-size” candy bars can make their way to every desktop and lunchbox in town---way ahead of schedule. I live with a public relations executive. I’ve seen the lengths that marketing companies will go to get their stuff “out there” so the rest of us can get sucked in to an impulse purchase or two. Let’s look at exactly what you get with a bag of those “fun-size” bars.

Learning to test your blood sugar, give yourself an insulin shot, or count carbohydrates isn?t average curriculum for a first grader. But it?s been standard protocol for 17-year-old La Cañada High School senior Remy De Brauwere since she and her family learned the then-6-year-old had type 1 diabetes. Remy credits her supportive family, helpful physician and the knowledgeable staff at Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles with keeping her on track for a healthy life, despite the autoimmune disease that destroyed insulin producing beta cells in her pancreas.

Ah, the "olden days," a time when life was simpler, even food was simpler. We ate less processed, sweetened food, and sugar was a rare treat. Just before the turn of this century, the average American consumed about five pounds of sugar per year. Cut to today, you'll find sugar in cereal, ketchup, bread, crackers, salad dressings, sauces and fast foods — and that five pounds per year has multiplied to 135 pounds consumed each year! Back in those olden days, there were no Krispy Kreme doughnuts (10 grams of sugar)

Back by popular demand — and because I am in the mood to change things up in this corner today — is a repeat lesson in making English toffee from a recipe handed down from my grandmother to my mother, and then to me. I ran the directions at this time last year, the day after we learned Tribune Company, which counts the Valley Sun among its holdings, had filed for bankruptcy. Since chocolate has an exquisite property that helps smooth out life’s sharp edges, it seemed reasonable then to talk candy-making instead of ruminating on the perilous business of news publishing.
