Review: Candyfreak

Candyfreak by Steve Almond

This has been on my "to be read" list for a while, and I'm so glad I finally go around to reading it - especially since it was a fast, fun read!

Jessy told me this was a great book, and she was right! I found myself alternately smiling, laughing and salivating as Almond describes his childhood of candy, his candyfreak tendancies, and then begins touring different candy-making companies in an effort to fully understand the industry.

This book brought back candy memories from my childhood, made me yearn for chocolate (a rare craving in my world), and made me wonder about the off-kilter passions that we all carry with us.

A great read!
