A mid-afternoon pick-me-up at work today. Before I left for I Australia there was a basket by the printer that was kept full of healthy snack — fruit gums and the like. Since I’ve been back though, the basket has been full of various candies — and whenever it gets low, more of the stuff keeps reappearing. My guess is that someone in the office had a LOT of Halloween candy left over, and is using this basket to slowly get rid of it. A lot of the choices don’t do much for me, but these Smarties (which are completely unlike the Aussie lolly of the same name — these are more like Fruit Tingles, but not really) are a passable way to stave off the 3 p.m. slump.
