Mmm... Mmm... Good!... I just love-love-love candy! How about you?

Believe me - If you don't gain some serious weight just by looking through this tongue-tantalizing book of deliciously sweet treats - At least it will get your mouth a-salivating, like, pronto, for another delectable taste of one of your very favourite kinds of refined sugar.

Delightfully compiled (with informative text) by Beth Kimmerle - "Candy - The Sweet History" is a truly enjoyable picture-book that takes a scrumptiously sweet look at some of the most notable moments in candyland history (going all the way back to the late-19th century).

Yum-Yum-Yummy! Good for the tummy!
