Doc’s Bright Idea

Today is a very important day in Back to the Future history.

It has been 27 years since Doc Brown thought up the flux capacitor.

Without him slipping on the toilet and getting knocked out, he never would have dreamed of the flux capacitor or created the time machine. And one of the most amazing stories could never have been told.

Mal_huh Whoa Wow

And I know time travel has been around long before, but let’s face it. A Delorean it is the best way to travel through time:

CANDY TIME!

CANDY!

I love Candy! One of my favorite movies as a kid was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Not only did I love the story and the songs, but I loved that opening scene when all the kids get free candy. I really wanted to be in that film.

I had this WHOLE song memorized by the first time I watched this film.

Anyways, with Halloween just ending, and me with a huge collection of candy, I wanted to share what my favs that I was able to get are.

First that special thing that only comes out once a year,

CANDY CORN & CANDY PUMPKINS

I love these things and wished they were available all year long. Candy corn always makes me think of Hemlich in a Bugs’ Life. This line always pops in my head:

GUMBALL NERDS!

They also only come out at Halloween. Every other time they are impossible to find.

Finally something GOOD!

Finally the wait is over!

Now who doesn’t love Nerds?

Nerds

Nerds are one of my favorite candies, and luckily  I can eat these any time!

M&Ms! These I can also eat anytime, all the time. Peanut, pretzel, mint, coconut, chocolate, etc.

Chocolate makes everything better
